Homeopathic Data

Calc. flnor. has been proved by J. B, Bell, and the proving is reported in full in Allen's Encyclopedia, vol. x, page 398. The most complete data are to be found in the Guiding Symptoms, vol. iii. The drug had been very little used, if at all, homoeopathically, until Schussler brought it into prominence.


The higher potencies of this drug give the best results, especially in affections of the bones. It can also be used externally in such diseases as fissura am, bony growths, hemorrhoids, varicose veins and whitlow. It is applied by dissolving about twenty grains of the desired potency in half a glass of water and applying it on cotton, lint or other media. Schussler recommended the 12th decimal trituration.


Calcarea fluorica should be studied in its symptoms of the mind and larynx in connection with its relative Calc. card.; in its sleep symptoms with Fluoric acid. It corresponds to many symptoms of Phosphor., Mercur., Rata, Aurum, Silicea, etc. Often useful after Rhus in lumbago, having the same modalities; after Silicea in suppurations; after Bryonia and Calcarea in arthritis; after Sticta and Ferrum phos. in synovitis; after Natrum mur. in cold sores. Compare: in swelling of skull of infants, Silicea; in suppuration of bones, Calc. phosph., Assafoet., Silicea; in spavin of horses, Phosph. acid and Silicea. In anaemia it is useful after Calcar. phosph.
