I certainly do! The books I like the most are:
The Biochemic Handbook Chapman and Perry
The Twelve Tissue Remedies of Shussler Boericke and Dewey

You'll see it spelled either "Schussler" with an umlaut (which I can't get to work) or "Schuessler."

About a week ago I got a bumpy, itchy rash that started on my pubic bone and then spread to either side and has stopped around my hip bones. It's quite itchy but I'm not miserable. I couldn't figure out where it came from. Then a couple of nights ago I remembered I took a remedy for my UTI. I've been symptom free for quite a while. I am thinking that the rash might be a sign that my healing is progressing from the inside now to my skin. Fingerscrossed that this is the case.

I'm curious about calc carb (to help absorb calcium) for early tooth problems. DS has white spots on his front teeth, we're dairy free, so I'm looking into this as well.

Is it pointless to give 2 remedies for a similar purpose? (e.g calc carb for the calcium, calc phos for ? )


What are thoughts around traveling by plane with homeopathics? I'm trying to pack a little travel kit for our upcoming trip, but will they be okay going on the plane?

well, calc carb is going to be inherently different because it is energetic. There are people that use it for the purpose you are describing, but it will only work if it's the indicated remedy IMO. Scratch that (and I'm so going to get yelled at here) it can also work if it's *an* indicated remedy. The salts will work regardless because they are nutritional. It's like taking a supplement. There's no matching it to the person, other than figuring out which salts correspond with the deficiencies that have manifested.

Using the salts will deliver calcium to the cells is very usable forms. It will also increase the uptake of dietary calcium as found in plants, nuts etc.

I believe that you can certainly in many situations take more than one remedy-especially in an acute sense. You can also take salts along with remedies. However you need to evaluate if the issue is lack of calcium, or lack of ability to utilize the calcium present. Homeopathy can not correct errors in diet.

About air travel.......

At first, after 9-11, when they started insisting that they x-ray everything, there was a great deal of concern that it would antidote our remedies. Experience has not shown that to be the case.

I have traveled by air and sent my remedies through x-ray and have not noticed any difference.

If you have any remedies that are made from controlled substances, you wouldn't want to take those with you. Even though there is nothing left of the original substance, security will take them and throw them out.

I wasn't sure which angle you were wondering about......

Who is going to yell at you?

Cell salts are interesting. They are not my area of expertise at all. I have seen them work homeopathically and nutritionally, which I imagine depends on the sensitivity of the person taking them and how close the cell salt is to the similimum.
post #48 of 864
Well, I know YOU'D never yell at me.

I have seen people use calc carb for this purpose and I dont' think you NEED calc carb to be the simillimum for it to work, but I do think that you need to have indications of it to even think about taking this tact. What say you? That is an interesting question.

I adore tissue salts. Adore them. I have never seen them work homeopathically-that's really interesting! I do think the symptom pictures can have some overlap though so maybe I have and I'm not looking at it that way. I mean, mag phos, ferrum phos and silica spring to mind as having a LOT of overlap.
post #49 of 864
I agree, I don't think as a cell salt it has to be the similimum to work. But I do think you should somewhat match the picture. I know it's nutritional, but at the same time, it's still homeopathically prepared. I always have issues when people randomly take things though. Just my own issues.

I actually just recently saw Calc phos 6X work homeopathically. It was pretty cool. We just went up in potency in order to help it hold longer, which it did.
post #50 of 864
I am curious about your input on the calc carb. That in terms of the simillimum (which I don't think it has to be) vs. having some indications for it. That WOULD be potentized so it's a different ball game. Then you are talking energetic vs. nutritional.

Since the salts are inorganic matter that is essential to life in THEORY they could be taken daily without indication-at least that's how I learned them. Plus I wonder about the difference in action between a 6X remedy and a tissue salt. Though I am clueless as to how you'd set up a trial for that! Was the response you saw with a remedy or a salt? Cause that is intriguing (well, to my nerdy self.)
post #51 of 864
PB, we'll have to start our own thread so we don't bore everyone.

The Calc phos was a cell salt! She was actually aggravating it, which made me wonder about looking at it as a remedy. The whole thing makes me wonder about cell salts, yk?

I would not do the Calc carb solely on the basis of strengthening teeth. If you take something homeopathic and it doesn't match the picture, it's not going to work.

I would go with Calc phos or Calc fluor in a cell salt, if those were my options. Well, truly, I would go with the constitutional remedy, if that were at all an option.
post #52 of 864
no, that's my POV and I was curious what you thought. Calc carb isn't known to increase calcium availability UNLESS it's a calc carb individual (which I don't think necessarily means that they are calc carb right now.) BUT the indications should be easy to spot. It is true that calc carb babies tend to have issues with calcium assimilation!

that's insane about the calc phos!

I 100% agree about the last point though. In this situation I'd do cell salts unless the child had clear cut calc carb indications-and even then I'd be more interested in the cell salts. Does that help at all Springmum? Did a practitioner prescribe the calc carb, or are you just interested in the calcium factor?

I love the conversation you guys were having, I don't understand it all, but it's great learning!

I should have clarified that it was my ND that gave DS the calc carb, but for some reason it wasn't sitting well with me, so I thought I would ask. She has him taking one 200c pellet at bedtime until finished (a little tube) She said the white spots should show improvement in 2 weeks.


We have had issues with calcium in our diets due to his dairy intolerance and lack of interest in foods (I was drinking almond milk though). We have just started a goat milk trial, and I'm hoping some of the greens that bothered him before will be okay now. He still has mucousy poops quite frequently (can't get to the bottom of) so absorption *could* be an issue? I don't know.

Not that I think it's right to diagnose/prescribe myself (and please let me know if I shouldn't be asking ) - but how do I find out what cell salt is most appropriate for our situation (we're going on vacation, so I would like to have something with us, won't see the ND until we get back)
Like could I give him both calc phos, and calc flour once a day for ___ days?

When we see our ND again I will ask about the cell salts, b/c I've never heard of them before.

I appreciate your thoughts and input.

Good info about the air travel to, thank you.
post #54 of 864
Yikes. That is quite a high potency with extremely frequent repetition. Even as a constitutional, that amount of repetition is almost unheard of in that potency. As a specific for teeth, it's, well, just be careful with that. Watch for proving symptoms.
post #55 of 864
BTW, anything that doesn't feel right to you is worth questioning. Pay attention to that inner voice!

And you absolutely can prescribe for yourself-- for acutes anyway. There are several books you can pick up for that purpose. My favorite to start with is The Complete Homeopathy Handbook by Miranda Castro.
post #56 of 864
that. Wow! That's many, many high doses. For classical prescribing or otherwise!

In terms of salts, in general those are taken without prescription by a practitioner and they don't follow the same rules as homeopathy *in the sense that* you often do take multiple salts at a time and when you take them it's generally several times a day.

There is plenty of free reading to be had on the salts online. You could start there!

ordering cell salts

I'm trying to order cell salts from Washington Homeopathic.
I didn't realize that I would need to pick a potency, but it is not allowing me to continue with my order. Should I pick 6x? I didn't think cell salts had variable potencies. (is that how you make it plural?)

I think I was tired and misreading or something last night.

So here are some more of my thoughts on the Calc carb.

It doesn't have to be the similimum in order to help. It could be a close-enough-icum, and it would be fairly effective, if we are talking about an acute case. If it was prescribed constitutionally and wasn't the similimum, it would still have to be pretty close, and it's action would be limited. It would likely lead to another remedy, which wouldn't be all bad, most likely-- zig zagging to a cure.
post #59 of 864
M2S: Yes, cell salts are always 6X.
post #60 of 864
Thank barefoot for weighing in. That's what I was trying to say in my first post where I was afraid of getting yelled at! Close-enough-i-cum is perfect. :

Cell salts should always be 6X, but there are companies that sell different potencies of salts which I do NOT understand.
