Calcium is an essential mineral that promotes stronger bones. It also prevents a range of bone disorders, including osteoporosis, low bone density, and brittle bones. In homeopathic medicine, calcium deficiency doesn’t just affect the bones; it can also lead to mental and behavioral disorders. Below are the most common homeopathic remedies for calcium deficiency.
1. Calcarea Carbonica
This type of homeopathic remedy is made from the middle layer of egg shells. The raw ingredient has to be prepared in a process called trituration before application. Trituration involves grounding the shells into a fine powder and eliminating harmful compounds.
Before prescribing calcarea carbonica, a practitioner will subject the patient to a full symptomatology. Symptomatology requires a complete assessment of the patient’s heredity, history and health based on certain diseases or weaknesses. Calcarea carbonica is typically prescribed to patients who tire easily from exertion. It’s often used to treat achy joints and stressed bones.
2. Calcium Phosphate
Calcium phosphate is a laboratory-prepared calcium hydroxide diluted in phosphoric acid. This remedy is used to treat chronic back pain and recurring hip and neck pain. Calcium phosphate is usually prescribed to patients who are sensitive but social, insecure and depressed. Negative feelings like anxiety, stress and depression can cause restlessness. This in turn, affects the bones. When the patient is stressed out, the bones become weaker, less impervious to strain. This leads to chronic pain in the back, hips, and joints.
Calcium phosphate is often used in homeopathy as a treatment for fractures, joint pain, arthritis and bones that take longer to mend.
Symphytum is a homoeopathic medicine made from the Comfrey roots and leaves. The roots and leaves are processed to harness its diluted form. Symphytum contains a compound called allantoin. This nutrient stimulates bone cell regeneration. It promotes self-healing inside and out. Allantoin also triggers osteoblasts, allowing the body to generate more cells to heal damaged tissues and bones.
Symphytum is an excellent treatment for porous bones. This ailment is also known as osteoporosis. This condition is characterized by gradual bone loss, leading to a spongy bone. Symphytum works by promoting bone density. When the bones are strong, it creates a protective shell for the bone marrow. Symphytum can also heal fractures, especially bone damage that heals slowly.
This compound can also trigger the production of collagen. Collagen strengthens the bones and minimizes cell damage. Symphytum is often prescribed to seniors with a broken bone as well as individuals suffering from various bone diseases.
Silicea is a type of organic salt with curative benefits. This compound is extracted from minerals then transformed into silicea to enhance its curative effects. It’s often used to treat inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Silicea heals the joints and eliminates painful swelling of the subcutaneous nodules of hip joints. It also protects the bones from inflammation.
Silicea is often prescribed to a patient with very low resistance to infections. It’s used to treat very weak spine and people with frail bones. This compound is also used as a remedy against bursitis, slow bone growth in children and achy limbs.
