Schuessler Salt No. 12 Calcium sulfuricum (calcium sulphate) is said to work mainly in the connective tissue. It should support detoxification and cleansing processes and help with immune reactions. This substance is preferably administered by non-medical practitioners in the case of damaged tissue, for example in the case of rheumatism, gout or purulent inflammation.
What is Schuessler Salt No. 12: Calcium sulfuricum?
Schuessler Salt No. 12 Calcium sulfuricum is considered an important substance for strengthening the tissue. In contrast to the Schuessler salts no. 2 calcium phosphoricum and no. 4 potassium chloratum, which are said to be responsible for the formation of tissue, calcium sulfuricum is responsible for the permeability of the tissue. The communication and the exchange of substances between connective tissue cells should be supported by the Schuessler salt no. 12.
According to the Schuessler salt theory, if there is a lack of calcium sulfuricum in the tissue, the following happens: the tissue hardens and metabolism no longer takes place. Acids and metabolic waste accumulate, the number of immune cells decreases and pathogens spread. The impermeable tissue prevents the removal of waste products: suppuration and abscesses are said to be the result. Calcium sulphate is therefore often administered for purulent inflammations, but also for gout and rheumatism, in order to restore the permeability of the tissue.
Like all Schuessler salts, Schuessler Salt No. 12 Calcium sulfuricum is not a dietary supplement. It only contains the eponymous salt in homeopathic doses and therefore cannot directly compensate for a corresponding salt deficiency. The goal of ingestion is to alleviate symptoms that are similar to those that would occur with a corresponding salt deficiency. The Schuessler salt should also work if there is a completely different cause behind the symptoms.
The twelfth main remedy Calcium sulfuricum was actually developed by the homeopathic doctor Dr. Schuessler removed from the series of effective Schuessler salts. The reason: Dr. Schuessler could not classify the effect of the drug 100 percent. His successors, on the other hand, put Calcium sulfuricum back on the list because they were convinced of its effectiveness in various diseases.
Storage locations for Calcium sulfuricum
Calcium sulfuricum is mainly found in the liver, bile and muscles. However, if the reserves of calcium sulfuricum are excessively skimmed off, the organism gets this mineral according to the theory of Dr. Schuessler from his memory, the bones.
Symptoms and diseases of calcium sulfuricum deficiency
In the case of the following complaints or diseases, naturopaths usually suspect a calcium sulfuricum deficit:
- compacted tissue
- delayed cold, chronic bronchitis
- purulent tonsillitis, throat, middle ear or gum inflammation
- purulent abscesses or fistulas
- rheumatism, gout
- accumulated fluid in the body
- mental and physical shock
Schuessler Salts No. 12 are intended to help alleviate the symptoms. However, experienced non-medical practitioners are aware that various diseases must also be clarified and treated using conventional medicine. For example, untreated abscesses or fistulas can result in dangerous blood poisoning. Water retention in the body, on the other hand, is a possible sign of a serious underlying disease in the cardiovascular system. It is therefore highly advisable to see a doctor.
Application of Calcium Sulfuricum
Calcium sulfuricum is used internally in the form of tablets or externally as an ointment or porridge (dissolved tablets).
Internal use of Calcium sulphuricum
As a rule, the sixth potentiation, i.e. Calcium sulfuricum D6, is recommended. The number of tablets to be taken depends on the severity of the deficiency and should preferably be discussed with a therapist. If you want to take the Chinese organ clock into account, you should take Calcium sulfuricum after 6 p.m., because then the effect is supposed to be best.
External use of Calcium sulfuricum
Externally, either ointments or a paste made with Calcium sulfuricum D6 support the treatment.
Typical causes of a lack of calcium sulfuricum
Certain compulsive character structures are said to be responsible for a very high consumption of Schuessler salts. In the case of Schuessler Salts No. 12, naturopaths often suspect a disturbed relationship between the inner and outer world in those affected. According to healing theory, anyone who either lives predominantly outwards or closes themselves inwards consumes a lot of calcium sulphuricum. It is then necessary to restore the balance between the inner and outer world. This also normalizes the calcium sulphate content.
Signs of deficiency on the face
Experienced naturopaths try to identify possible deficiencies in Schuessler salts on the face (face signs) using what is known as facial analysis. If there is a lack of calcium sulfuricum, a chalk-white face is a typical feature. However, the information on the facial signs for these homeopathic remedies are contradictory.
Other important information about Calcium sulfuricum
If there is a calcium sulfuricum deficiency, according to the healing theory of Dr. Schuessler various circumstances to improve or worsen the symptoms. When warmth, relief, and rest relieve symptoms, or hyperacidity does the opposite, these are indicators of a need for calcium sulfate.
