Calcium Phos. is most important in the formation of new cells. It is essential for proper growth and nutrition of the body. It gives solidity to the bones. We need this tissue salt for the restoration of tissues after acute diseases. It is an excellent stomach and digestion tonic.  

Phosphate of lime (calc. phos.) is a principal chemical constituent of the bones, and it is also one of the effective cell salt remedies. It is given for its restorative powers following acute diseases and infections. In addition, it is specifically called for in all bone problems, as well as in many kinds of anemia, because it builds up new blood cells. It is essential in general nutrition as well.

Calc. phos., as a nutritional cell salt remedy, is one of the first cell salts to take if you are generally run down. It is the primary remedy indicated for children who are not developing correctly. 

When symptoms indicate a need for one of the other cell salts, it is often fitting to take calcium phosphate also. This is because it tends to intensify the action of other cell salts, promoting healthy cellular activity and restoring tone to weakened organs and tissues.

The Importance of Good Nutrition

If you are taking this cell salt remedy because of digestive or nutritional problems, it is smart to combine its regular use with an intelligent approach to nutrition. After a change to a more healthful diet, you will be amazed at the improvement in your health. Calc. phos. can aid tremendously in your digestive processes, but no remedy can completely counteract the effects of a harmful diet.

If you find that you have an unusual craving for salty bacon or smoked meat; if cold drinks, ice cream, and fruit seem to cause diarrhea; if eating causes stomach pains; if you have a gnawing, empty feeling in your stomach even after eating, consider taking calc. phos.

Taken along with calc, fluor., this remedy has given positive results for people suffering from obesity. This is because one of the problems that calc. phos can cure a ravenous appetite, especially when it strikes before dinner. If you suffer from indigestion, a dose of calc. phos. should be taken after every meal. It will help break up the food and promote healthy digestion. It will also help when there is an increase in gas.


Quite often, the person who needs calc. phos. is tall, thin, listless, without ambition, and suffers from low spirits. Why does calc. phos. work so well in such cases? The answer is that a shortage of this mineral results in a lack of red blood cells. A low red blood cell count affects the bones since red blood cells make up part of the marrow of bones. Anemia, for example, almost always calls for treatment with calc. phos, as well as ferrum phos.

Calc. phos, has helped many teenage girls because it combats female disorders. A common application of the cell salt remedies in female disorders requires a couple of weeks of treatment with calc. phos, followed by treatment with ferrum phos. You should alternate the two remedies as long as the conditions persist.

Quite often, those who have a calcium phosphate deficiency will have a waxy pallor to their skin. They suffer from headaches, often characterized by a cold feeling in the head. They may also suffer from vertigo when walking. Watching television may cause headaches in these people.

Teeth and Bones

One of the body’s greatest needs is calcium, yet the modern diet lacks this mineral. Much of the digestible calcium in milk is destroyed by pasteurization. 

Calc. phos. is the primary cell salt remedy for children whose head bones are slow in forming or seem to be slow in developing mentally and physically. It has also been recommended for older people who have trouble rising from a sitting position. This remedy is valuable for both old and young.

Children who need this remedy often have poor memories and bad tempers. They are usually thin or even emaciated. They also tend to complain of muscle pains, especially in the left side of the body. Their teeth often appear to be very soft, and dentition is delayed. Their upper lips are frequently sore and painful, as are their tongues. They also have trouble with digestion and elimination.

Calc. phos. can also be helpful in mouth disorders such as sore throats and tonsillitis. 

The best-known use for calc. phos. is in treating teething problems related to poor nutrition and slow development. Doctors often prescribe calc. phos. for pregnant women. This cell salt is especially beneficial for those who have had trouble carrying children to term in the past or seem to exhibit the classic symptoms of calcium phosphate deficiency. 

Calc. phos. is not only the chief cell salt remedy for children. It can also work miracles in dealing with the problems of the old. Many older adults find that taking this remedy regularly keeps rheumatism aggravated by the night air and bad weather. When joints are bothered by cold, numbness, stiffness, or just plain aching, the best treatment is calc. Phos. and ferrum phos.

Psychological Symptoms

Calc. phos. has also been used by doctors to help patients who are suffering from unpleasant mental states. When children are fretful or peevish when the memory is poor, and when there seems to be an incapacity for concentrated thought, assuming other symptoms agree, this remedy can help.

All the phosphate cell salts are recommended for nerves and nerve ailments, but calc. Phos. has had some specific successes with certain kinds of neuralgia. These are characterized by aching bones, anemia, rheumatism, and so on.

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health?

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health?

Does Diet Affect Our Mental Health? 1920 1080 Abbe Lang

Many people believe that diet and nutrition have little to do with mental or emotional health. Yet, numerous studies prove that nutrient deficiencies and imbalances adversely affect the way we think and feel.

After all, the brain and the nervous system are very important parts of our physical bodies and need to be nourished, just like the other organs in our body. With a healthy body and brain, we produce the endorphins needed to feel optimistic, happy, and balanced. These “feel-good” endorphins help us cope with the stresses of everyday life.


One important factor in your mental health is low blood sugar (hypoglycemia). When our blood sugar drops lower than it should be, we can feel anxious, nervous, depressed, and angry. Daily binging on sugar not only causes low blood sugar; it also releases dopamine, a feel-good chemical in the brain; this results in fewer dopamine receptors and a need for greater amounts of sugar to feel good. To prevent low blood sugar, it is important to eat healthy, nutrient-dense foods.


Scientists and health practitioners have discovered that good health, including mental health, begins in the gut. When we have an abundance of beneficial gut flora, these microorganisms produce feel-good chemicals. When an overgrowth of candida and fungi overpopulates the intestinal tract, these microorganisms produce neurotoxins that can cause everything from ADD to depression. Genetically modified foods, antibiotics, chlorinated and fluoridated water, and concentrated sweeteners can destroy beneficial gut bacteria.


Poor thyroid function can result in mental health disturbances. People with an overactive thyroid may be anxious, tense, moody, impatient, irritable, and depressed. People with an underactive thyroid may lose interest and initiative, have slow mental processing and memory, and may suffer from depression. Iodine and Vitamin A are key nutrients for healthy thyroid function.


Many food products and beverages in the modern diet can affect the nervous system and lead to depression and mental illness.

REFINED SWEETENERS: sugar, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose

MODERN VEGETABLE OILS: hardened shortenings, margarines, spreads and liquid oils MSG, almost all processed foods contain MSG, even low-fat dairy products

ADDITIVES: Artificial dyes, flavorings, and preservatives

WHEAT: And other gluten-containing products, poor digestions, and leaky gut.

SOY: Depresses thyroid function

ASPARTAME: Associated with panic attacks, depression, memory problems

GMOs: Disrupt gut flora

The following nutrients are very important to your mental health.

Vitamin A: Think cod liver oil

Vitamin D: Think Cod liver oil

Vitamin B: Think nuts and grains

Vitamin B3: Think grass-fed meat and seafood.

Folate: Think leafy green vegetables.

Vitamin C: think fresh fruits and Vegetables.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids: Think Cod Liver Oil

Zinc: Think grass-fed red meat or oysters.
