CALCAREA PHOSPHORICACalcarea Phosphorica (Phosphate of Lime)


Calcarea Phosphorica is a key tissue remedy, sharing some symptoms with Calcarea but with distinct features. It’s particularly useful for delayed dentition, bone diseases, non-union of fractures, and anemias following acute or chronic wasting diseases. It’s indicated for anemic children who are irritable, flabby, have cold extremities, and weak digestion. It targets areas where bones form sutures or symphyses, with symptoms worsening with weather changes. Characteristic sensations include numbness and crawling, with a tendency to perspire and glandular enlargement. Conditions treated include scrophulosis, chlorosis, and phthisis.

Mind: Peevish, forgetful; desires to go somewhere, worsened by grief and vexation.

Head: Headaches around sutures, worsened by weather changes, common in school children at puberty. Prolonged open fontanelles, soft and thin cranial bones, defective hearing, headaches with abdominal flatulence, hot head with smarting hair roots.

Eyes: Corneal opacity following an abscess.

Mouth: Swollen tonsils, painful mouth opening, slow dentition, rapid tooth decay, adenoid growths.

Stomach: Infants constantly want to nurse and vomit easily. Cravings for bacon, ham, salted or smoked meats. Severe flatulence, intense hunger with thirst, temporary relief from sour eructations, heartburn, easy vomiting in children.

Abdomen: Colicky pain while eating, sunken and flabby abdomen, colic, soreness, and burning around the navel.

Stool: Bleeding after hard stools, diarrhea from juicy fruits or cider during dentition. Green, slimy, hot, sputtering, undigested stool with fetid flatus. Fistula in ano alternating with chest symptoms.

Urinary: Increased urine with a sensation of weakness, pain in kidney region (Bright’s disease) when lifting or blowing the nose.

Female: Early, excessive, and bright menses in girls. If late, blood is dark, sometimes initially bright then dark, with violent backache during lactation with sexual excitement. Nymphomania, aching, pressing pains, or uterine weakness after prolonged nursing. Leucorrhea like egg whites, worse in the morning. Child refuses breast due to salty milk. Prolapse in debilitated women.

Respiratory: Involuntary sighing, sore chest, suffocative cough improved by lying down, hoarseness, pain in lower left lung (calcified nodes).

Back: Rheumatic pain from drafts, stiffness, and dullness in the head. Soreness in sacro-iliac symphyses as if broken.

Extremities: Stiffness and pain with a cold, numb feeling, worsened by weather changes. Crawling and coldness, numb buttocks, back, and limbs. Joint and bone pain, fatigue when climbing stairs.

Modalities: Worse with damp, cold weather, melting snow. Better in summer, warm, dry atmosphere.

Relationship: Complementary to Ruta and Hep. Compare with Calcarea hypophosporosa for abscess-related phosphorus depletion, Cheiranthus cheiri for wisdom teeth, Calcarea renalis for arthritic nodosities and renal calculi, and Conchiolinum for bone affections.

Compare: Calcarea hypophosporosa (is preferred when it seems necessary to furnish the patient with liberal doses of phosphorus as a consequence of continuous abscesses which reduce the vitality. Give first and second decimal triturations. Loss of appetite, rapid debility, night sweats; acne pustulosa- pallor of skin, habitually cold extremities. Phthisis-diarrhea and cough; acute pains in the chest. Mesenteric tuberculosis. Bleeding from lungs; angina pectoris; asthma; affection of arteries. Veins stand out like whipcords. Attacks of pain occurring two hours after meals (relieved by a cup of milk or light food). Cheiranthus cheiri (effects of cutting wisdom teeth). Calcarea renalis- Lapis renalis (arthritic nodosities. Rigg’s disease; lessens tendency to accumulation of tartar on teeth; gravel and renal calculi). Conchiolinum- Mater perlarum-Mother of pearl (osteitis; has a wide range of action in bone affections, especially when the growing ends are affected. Petechiae). Sil., Psor., Sulph.

Dose: First to third trituration, with higher potencies often more effective.CALCAREA PHOSPHORICA

selection of the potency

  1. Individualization:

    • Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating the individual, not just the disease. The unique symptoms and characteristics of the person are crucial in determining the most suitable potency.
  2. Intensity of Symptoms:

    • The intensity of the symptoms guides the choice of potency. If the symptoms are intense and acute, a lower potency (e.g., 6C, 30C) might be considered. For chronic conditions with less intensity, higher potencies (e.g., 200C, 1M) may be appropriate.
  3. Sensitivity of the Patient:

    • Some individuals are more sensitive to homeopathic remedies, while others may require higher potencies. The practitioner considers the patient’s sensitivity when selecting the potency.
  4. Acute vs. Chronic Conditions:

    • Lower potencies are often used for acute conditions, while higher potencies may be considered for chronic or long-standing issues.
  5. Previous Response to Potencies:

    • The patient’s response to previous homeopathic treatments helps guide the choice of potency. If a particular potency has been effective in the past, it may be repeated or adjusted as needed.
  6. Vital Force and Susceptibility:

    • Homeopathy views illness as a disturbance in the vital force. The practitioner assesses the patient’s overall vitality and susceptibility to determine the appropriate potency.
  7. Aggravation or Amelioration:

    • The direction of the symptom response (aggravation or amelioration) after taking a remedy can influence the choice of potency.
  8. Miasmatic Considerations:

    • In classical homeopathy, the concept of miasms (inherited disease tendencies) is considered. The practitioner take this into account when selecting the potency.
  9. Practitioner Experience:

    • The experience and preference of the homeopathic practitioner play a role. Some practitioners may have success with certain potencies based on their clinical experience.


  • Do not exceed the recommended dose by physician
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight
  • Maintain half an hour gap between food/drink/any other medicines and homoeopathic medicine
  • Avoid any strong smell in the mouth while taking medicine e.g. camphor, garlic, onion, coffee, hing

Medicine images use for reference only selection of homeopathic medicine depends on the individual’s specific symptoms and overall constitution. Moreover, homeopathy is a holistic system of medicine that treats the individual as a whole. In addition to addressing the physical symptoms, it takes into account the emotional and mental state of the person.
