Calcarea Fluorica (Calc. Fluor) is the first remedy in The Biochemic System of Medicine.
I have always related it as the remedy to solve any deficiency in elasticity of the skin, cells and bowels. I will complement this remedy with Calc. Phos, Kali Phos, Nat Phos and Mag Phos whenever I have problems with digestion which could result in abdominal bloating as mentioned in the earlier article on how Calc. Phos could improve digestion.
It makes a lot of difference because anything we eat might be able to digest, but does that mean the waste could be released easily from our body?
Another common use of Calc. Fluor is for ulcers. Four days ago, I had one which forms inside my mouth near the lips. As always, ulcers can be painful and most importantly distracting. I had attributed it to either dehydration, or my teeth accidentally bite it when I was sleeping.
I did not do anything to it for three days thinking that if I bite it off, it will secrete the pus and eventually will be gone. Well, I was right. It was gone but within the same day, it grew again.
On the fourth day around 4pm, I had decided to take three globules of Calc. Fluor. The ulcer subsided within the next hour. Take note that it depends on how your body responded to these remedies. Mine most of the time is quite immediate in less than 30 minutes.
There are other symptoms such as the skin near my fingers are chapped and dry, which is a signal to me that there is something deficient in my body.
What is Calcarea Fluorica?
Calcarea Fluorica is also known as Fluor-Spar, beautifully crystallized in lead-veins in nature. In our body, it is found in the surface of the bones, enamel of the teeth, elastic fibres and the cells of the skin. When our body has deficiency of this tissue salt, the fibres causes a continued dilatation or relaxed condition. This is seen in conditions like varicose veins, relaxation of abdominal walls with consequent sagging of the abdominal viscera, uterine and tumours haemorrhages, etc (Cited in Materia Medica of the Twelve Biochemic Remedies by George W. Carey, M.D).
When there is relaxation in the elastic fibres of the blood vessels, connective tissue and lymphatic system, it will not able to absorb exudations. In order for exudations to be dismissed, having sufficient Calc Fluor will help to restore our body’s condition.

Bloated stomach has been one of the common issues you and I may have been experiencing. We could have tried exercising it off, sit-ups, abs exercising but still it does not go away. Bloating stomach could be the cause of flatulence, constipation, indigestion, or other possibilities. It can appear in many forms -- hard, soft, rounded, shiny etc. If your doctor has not diagnosed anything, and if it is uncomfortable that it is bothering you, please do visit your doctor for a medical check-up.
I am writing this based on my personal experiences using Schussler Biochemic tissue salts remedies to overcome the bloating stomach I have been experiencing for the past two years.
Why it took me two years to find the suitable remedy suitable for myself?
In practical, I believed in the effectiveness of the science of Schussler Biochemic. Sharing it here is not to merely inform you of the Biochemic Consultation service I am offering. I will write something which works for me as a user. I have been learning Schussler Biochemic tissue salts and Homeopathy since 2005, and have been using these remedies since I was a toddler prescribed by my dad who is a Homeopathy.
I had also tried several remedies such as TCM and supplements Vitamin E and C tablets. But my body is sensitive to supplements, so I had no choice but to stick to the alternatives such as Homeopathy, TCM, Biochemic.
This article is focusing on how Biochemic Calc Phos 6x could aid with digestion.
What is Schussler Biochemic’s tissue salt Calcarea Phosphorica 6x remedy made of?
I have decided to share with you guys what this is through this diagram, the simplified version to understand the summary of Calc. Phos or the common name Phosphate of Lime.
When to take Calc. Phos 6x?
Calc. Phos is advised to be taken after meals to aid with digestion. Normally, it can be taken around 10 to 30 minutes right after meals. It is flexible depending on the needs of your body which you have to learn to observe and analyse. Remember that you own your own body and you have to learn on how it works, what is vulnerable to, anything that is good for you and those that made you uncomfortable.
What kind of results can you expect with Calc. Phos?
This is depending on how your body reacts and depending on other factors such as whether you have sufficient tissue salts in your body to aid with the passing motion. Personally, for mine, some remedies could have effect between 10 to 30 minutes. I will have the urge to go to the toilet and pass motion. And the waste is normally not solid. It will flow out easily without the need to force myself. If I take it at night before sleep, the next morning I need not force myself to pass motion.
Also, there will be a reduction in the bloating, but it will not reduce to 100%. Calc Phos functions is to aid with digestion but it might or might not help you to release the waste in your body by passing motion.
The outcome depends on the individual’s body which leads to the next section. What other remedies that complements with Calc Phos which need to be taken after? This is essential and will need a Biochemic Consultant/Practitioner to prescribe to you too. It depends on factors such as elasticity of your bowels, avoid constipation, or strengthen abdomen muscle.
How does it work?
Calc Phos biochemic tissue salt is to replace this tissue salts that could have been loss every day over the years in your body. There are many reasons that could have caused indigestion.
I find one very obvious sleep disruption at night when your body is at rest while your organs are in the process of doing its job. Sleep experts had highlighted in their studies that the organs in the body activates clean our body of toxins between 11pm to 3am. And when you are having issue with your sleep probably because you think too much about your work or eat too late at night, this will affect the whole body system functions.
That is why Calc Phos is also prescribed to ease sleeping at night. Most of the time, when you normally wake up at night to pee, your bladder could hold on to it and let you sleep all night long without disruption. There will be differences. As I had mentioned earlier, be observant about how your body works and you will be amazed by it.
What are the other remedies that complements with Calc Phos?
There could be other possible reasons which could be the cause of constipation. Therefore, at times there is a need to complement Calc Phos with other remedies such as Calc. Fluor, Mag Phos, Nat Mur or Nat Sulph.
Calc Fluor helps to restore elastic fibres, resume their contractility and function properly. Mag Phos is taken when it could not restore the normal condition in a reasonable time. While Nat Mur and Nat Sulph are for effective water distribution in the body when continuity is disrupted. These are useful especially if you noticed that sometimes you could feel bloating in some other parts of your body like face, neck which makes you feel uneasy. You might have tried exercising which at times will not have any effect to reduce that uneasiness.
For my personal condition, I had complemented my Calc Phos with Mag Phos, Nat Sulph, Nat Mur and Calc. Fluor. And I will consume these either after Lunch and Dinner, or after Dinner only.
I could feel that my body will be lighter, reduce in size and more comfortable when I wear my clothes the next day. Sometimes, I will take other Biochemic remedies too to make sure my stomach muscles are in shape. I could observe the difference in my body whenever I didn’t take these the day before. And since then, whenever I will have dinner dates with my friends the next day, I will make sure I will not miss any of these. It does make me feel comfortable hanging out with my friends the next day.

It has been quite a long time I did not write about Biochemic Schussler's remedies. Since an interesting situation occurs awhile ago, I would like to share a short one here. Few moments ago, I had tried the effect of Magnesia Phosphorica 6X on my 5 months old niece. I have been investigating the effect of this remedy since I found out about its existence during my course of study years ago.
Below is a short Synopsis of Magnesia Phosphorica (Mag. Phos)
Mag. Phos 6X is one of Schussler Biochemic remedies. It is the 8th remedy out of 12.
Mag. Phos' molecules are found in white fibres of our nerves and muscles. Nerves and muscles consists of strands of fibres with different colours. Each of it functions as a conductible power for certain functions. The white fibres are in fact control by the molecular function of magnesia cell salt. So when this salt deficiency occurs, the white fibres will contract and this is when spasms or cramps occur. How it works on stomach? When there is deficiency on the walls of the stomach where there are muscular tissue, the white fibres draw up and contract reducing the stomach cavity. Gas is then produced to react and prevent collapse, and by expansion produced a counter force.
Mag. Phos is a remedy suitable for muscles, bloated abdomen due to excess air, stomach cramps and other stomach related problems. It is a proven remedy to reduce the pain in menstrual cramps. From my years of implementing and experimenting its effect, for menstrual cramps, it works very well with Kali Phosphoricum. Apart from that, whenever you could feel that the body is lacking of proper blood circulation, it compliments well if taken with Ferrum Phosphate.
Even though sometimes you feel lack of energy and tired after a day of stress, Mag. Phos can be taken before sleep with Kali Phosphoricum or once in awhile with Calcarea Phosphorica.
My niece had been crying badly for nearly an hour and my family members suspected it has something to do with her stomach which had happened before. This is due to the fact that whenever they massaged her abdomen part, she tends to relax slightly. Therefore, I told my dad (who is also a Homeopathic Practitioner), that we should try Mag. Phos on her.
I had mixed Mag. Phos 6X tincture with a small portion of her eucalyptus oil and apply it on her stomach. While my dad mixed the crushed Mag. Phos globules into a plain drinking water. I then told my mum to apply it on her lips and let my niece sip it subtly. Mixing tincture in plain water is an alternative method to avoid choking for babies.
In less than five minutes, she kept quiet and doze off to sleep.
Biochemistry and Homeopathic remedies will work well if it is applied appropriately in respect to the condition of patients. It needs detailed observation before application. If applied properly, it will work wonders.
Disclaimer: Please prescribe remedies with your homeopathic practitioner's advice. Though Homeopathic and Biochemistry remedies do not contain drugs, it is advisable to seek advice before consuming it.
