Calcarea Carbonica can be taken whenever there is a lack of Calcium in the body (hypocalcemia)

Hypocalcemia is an electrolyte imbalance and is indicated by a low level of calcium in the blood.

Calcium is important for healthy bones and teeth, as well as for normal muscle and nerve function, healthy blood and function of the hearth and circulation. Normal blood calcium levels are maintained through the actions of parathyroid hormone (PTH), kidneys and intestines.

While calcium keeps our bones and teeth strong, those bones and teeth also store the calcium that the body needs – allowing the body to break down and rebuild bone when it needs that calcium for other body functions - what is the main reason of OSTEOPOROSIS (lack of Calcium is forcing body to use stored resources in bones).

Calcium is also responsible for normal pH level in the body: if there is not enough of Calcium, blood and whole body starts to be too acid - usual deseases are RHEUMATISM, OSTEOARTRITIS, ARTRITIS.

Causes of Hypocalcemia:

  • Vitamin D deficiency
  • HORMONAL IMBALANCE: FUNCTION OF THYROID GLAND AND PARATHYROID GLANDS: Parathyroid glands are responsible for balance of calcium and phospore in the blad. Parathyroid glands are part of thyroid gland, and usualy if thyroid gland is underactive, parathyroid glands are affected as well. How to heal thyroid gland, you can read in my hub: Hyperthyroidism & Hypothyroidism
  • Chronic renal failure
  • Magnesium deficiency
  • Alcoholism
  • Biphosphonate therapy - drugs used to treat high blood calcium levels or pills used to treat osteoporosis.
  • Certain types of leukemia or blood disorders
  • A complication of chemotherapy, tumor lysis syndrome, occurs when your body breaks down tumor cells rapidly, after chemotherapy. This may cause hypocalcemia, high blood potassium levels, and other electrolyte abnormalities.
  • Drugs such as diuretics, estrogens replacement therapy, fluorides, glucose, insulin, excessive laxative use, and magnesium may also lead to hypocalcemia.
  • Chemotherapy drugs (cisplatin)
  • Diuretics (furosemide[Lasix] or bumetanide[Bumex])
  • Antibiotics (amphotericin B)
  • Corticosteroids
  • Certain things in your diet, like caffeine, phosphates (found in soda pop) can make difficulties to calcium apsorption.

Vitamin D, helps you to absorb calcium in your body, as well as CALCAREA CARBONICA.

Symptoms of Hypocalcemia:

  • The most common sign of hypocalcemia is "neuromuscular irritability." Your nerves and muscles, which are directly related to blood calcium levels, may spasm or twitch.
  • If your blood test results indicate hypocalcemia, you may have muscle cramps in your legs or your arms.
  • The symptoms of hypocalcemia you experience may relate to how fast or how slowly the fall in blood calcium levels occur.
    • If you have long-standing low blood calcium levels, you may notice no symptoms of hypocalcemia.
    • If you have an "acute" or sudden drop in your blood calcium level, you may notice more twitching.
  • numbness and tingling of fingers and toes.
  • you can be depressed, or more irritable
  • You may become confused or disoriented AND VERY, VERY SLEEPY.
  • heart muscle contractS irregularly due to the electrolyte disturbance.
  • Increased urination.
  • Poor appetite that does not improve
  • sudden fall of level of calcium can cause: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.

Whan hypocalcemia occurs, supplements of calcium should be taken.

Calcarea Carbonica is good remedy which can completely replace supplements or calcium after some time, or be taken at the same time as suplements, because Calcarea carbonica helps body to attain balance and enchances natural absorbtion of calcium from the food (or suplements) as well as helps healing the cause of the deases.

Aragonite and calcite are beautiful CaCO3 minerals which pictures I put here to present the power of Calcium Carbonate: healing force of this remedy is as mighty as its creativity on the (sur)face of our planet.

??? Thank you Lee for the visit and comment, but is not clear to me what are you talking about. There is no such things you mentioned in my article, but glad that homeopathy helped you.

Lee on February 04, 2011:

I don't think homeopathy is magic just because we are now learning how it works we say it is's not magic it's chemisty and more real than those little pills we get our local GP that only succeed in suppression and eventual a quick downhill slide in our health and mind. homeopathy is more than magic do not kid yourself in undermining it's power you because you do not really understand how it works unintentionally passes this true healing modality as rubbish, and this could not be further from the truth. homeopathy healed my son when main stream only wanted th symbolically make him wear crutches.

Dear Mr Nice,

I have "working holidays". Tonight I am planning to answer on some of your questions...

Have a great time, Mir, Ljubav, Svjetlost...from cold city of Zadar.

Mr Nice from North America on December 27, 2008:

Dear Tatjana,

Thanks for the feedback & your email address. I hope you are enjoying your holidays.

Mir, Ljubav i Svjetlost....

Mr Nice from North America on December 23, 2008:

Sorry here are the links of videos.

Mir, Ljubav i Svjetlost....

Tatjana-Mihaela (author) from Zadar, CROATIA on December 21, 2008:

Dear Mr. Nice. thanks for your answer. By my opinion 1 single remedy is not sufficient for healing disease (except sometimes), especially nowadays where there is so many different influences in surrounding and in human life which did not exist when Hahneman started with homeopathy. Style of life very changed from that time, I think people should accept that fact, healing would be much more successful.

Radionics is the same as homeopathy, just we do not discuss about single remedies a lot, we use combinations. We prepare our remedies with radionic device and geometric cards, AS MANY HOMEOPATHS AS WELL. A lot of homeopatics ARE PREPARED ON THAT WAY nowadays, in homeopatic labs, just with much more bigger radioncs devices then individual has.

We can prepare the remedies from nosodas (f.E example of blod or urin of patient), because device can copy and potencize, as well. So we can copy and potentsize any of homeopathic remedies, traditional medicine medicaments, herbal remedies, crystals, blood, hair, urin of patient, basicaly averything. That is the reason radioncs are extremely effective.

We use also geometric cards with vibrations of healthy organs in the body, chackras, accupuncture meridians, specifical cards for illnesses, gems, vibrations of Bach flower remedies, radionics are a lot of possibilities.

Happy holidays to you and your dearest ones as well,

Love, Light, blessings....

Mr Nice from North America on December 21, 2008:

Thanks for your feedback. I am just a student of homeopathy & always try to learn from every where I can. I use both classical & new combination methods of homeopathic. It all depends on the health problem. In my experience both work. There are lots of common daily health problems that can be cured with tissue salts alone. Then there are other diseases those needs single remedy use but some times single remedy is not sufficent to cure the problem. It is a long disscusion but to cut it short I have a little bit problem with classical homeopathy. There are several homeopathic remedies that can be used for specific diseases & any one can use it for those conditions. For example, Nux vomica, Sulphur, Lycopodium, Aconitium, Belladona, Apis Mel, China, Carbo Veg, Arnica and many more. I don't have any knowledge about Radionics I read different views about this method, some controversial some in favor.

Happy holidays for you & every one dear & near one's to you.

Always Mir Ljubav

Tatjana-Mihaela (author) from Zadar, CROATIA on December 20, 2008:

Hm...sometimes people who are not homeopaths have more practical knowledge about homeopathy, because they dare to try some combinations, classical homeopaths would never try.

Yes, homeopatics carry memory of original substance. Please, feel free to look in my Hub: Homeopatics treatment & Radionics treatment-the most succesful way of healing, and maybe you will find something interesting.

I am so glad you will write a Hub about that subject.

Thanks, and all the best to your dearest ones.

Mr Nice from North America on December 20, 2008:

I am in love with homeopathic for long time now. I am not a homeopathic doctor but have lots of practical experience in homepathy. Homeopathic remedies are real magick in a small pallete or in a drop of liquid remedy. Allopaths don't understand it & just trying to find reasons to disapprove it all the time. I have personal experience to prove it that homeopathic remedies carry memory & it does work. It is a long discussion but I will write in detail about my findings in near future.

An early Merry Christmas & a happy new year too.

Tatjana-Mihaela (author) from Zadar, CROATIA on December 19, 2008:

Well, nature is amazing, and homeopathy is using this magick of nature. It must work. I am in love with homeopatics.

Thank you very much for your kind comment. Love & Light and Marry Christmas

Mr Nice from North America on December 19, 2008:

Homeopathy is amazing & some times miracle cures happened with homeopathic remedies. I only use homeopathic remedies no antibiotics in my body.
