Calcarea Carbonica

Calcarea Carbonica

Calcarea Carbonica

Just as the earth consists of hard and soft material, such as rocks, water and air, so too does the human body consist of the liquid, racing, iron-filled blood, the sulphurous skin and hair and the hard, rock-like, calcareous skeleton. The legion correspondences that really exist between earth, minerals, remedies, body and disease-states are endlessly fascinating and profoundly enriching for the natural therapist to consider.

In Homoeopathy the consultation focuses on the whole person, on their experience of their illness in their life. The consultation contains questions about your symptoms and everything that might influence you: the effects of time of day, position, temperature, weather changes, seasons, situations and emotions, diet, exercise. Each person when they are ill maintains a pattern of symptoms which is their best possible response to the illness. The purpose of the consultation is to understand and recognize this pattern of symptoms and match it in a homeopathic medicine chosen especially to stimulate natural healing.

You should continue all the medication you are already taking - it will not stop the healing effect of homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines are gentle yet act deeply and in harmony with your body and any other medication you need.

As long as you and your body need support, so the length of each treatment depends on: how long you have been ill, how severely ill you are, how long it might take for your body to heal and repair. It takes longer to heal joints than to heal skin. People often respond to homeopathy soon and once improvement begins it continues as it supports your natural healing resources.

The medicines are taken by mouth - as drops in water, or as pills or tablets to suck. They do not have a strong taste. Babies and young children are given the medicines in sweet granules. Full typed instructions are given on how to take the medicines and how often to take them or give them to your child. Usually the medicines are taken daily at the beginning of treatment.

Homeopathy is safe, gentle and natural.
Homeopathy is safe for babies and children.

  Calculate your Body Mass Index  
  The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height.

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. The excess weight or deficiency may, in part, be accounted for by body fat although other factors such as muscularity also affect BMI.
