This remedy is one of the practically unknown remedies,which has had no proving, excepts clinical fragment by Dr.Brendenoll, of Erwitte. He states that following a suppressed eruption be had among many other troubles renal colic of marked intensity, with passage of uric acid calculi.
One of these was triturated in the proportion of 5 parts To 95 of sugar of milk, and of this he took 1/2 gr.doses for a considerable time,with the result that the formation of calculi ceased, the tartar which had formed on the teeth dropped off, and a nodosity of stony hardness disappeared from the extensor tendon of the right middle finger.
Due to the fact the mostly the single remedies were proven and therefore extensive used by the early masters,comparatively few of the compounds have an are being used.
In clinical practice there is often found a remarkable balding of the compound substances, which for a freer use of their single pathogenesis, even though their compound action in detail may not be more fully known.
Such is the case in my experience with Calcarea renalis phosphorica. Like Calcarea carb,it is a pseudo-psoric and sycotic remedy,portraying in use many of he characteristics of Calcarea, To this is aptly added the phosphate entity, occupying a prominent position as a pseudo-psoric,both of which unite with the concentrated produces of sycosis (Hahnemann) in the renalis, which, if as thoroughly understand as the preceding two,should form a powerful and potential means in curative treatment.
May I add in digressing that is is with exception that the iodide combinations differ. when they enter into a chemical combination identity is not lost. This is seen in the iodides of Mercury, in the Arsenicum iodide,which maintains its characteristic sensitivity to heat, irrespective of the intense opposite found in Arsenicum alb.
So far I have had no experience with the remedy in renal colic. for your consideration I present some clinical symptoms, which may at some time or other be a value, namely:.
Anxiety;loathing;despair; indolence and indifference everything (all found in Calcarea carb.).
Dreams of the dead (Calcarea; Calcarea sil.; Phos.).
Sensitive to cold air in general.
Chilly in between shoulders; wants to keep back pressing against radiators to keep warm;agg. evening.
Marked aggravation in morning on waking, which classifies it as a sycotic remedy.
Desire for heavy foods;’for sweets (Calcarea carb); agg.from, onions.
Emptiness and increased appetite follow its use;increase in same as the teeth,. especially the larger joints,.
General and severe painfulness of joints,with stiffness on beginning to move,amel. by continued motion (Calc;Rhus).
Continued weakness after “flu”.
Sleepiness, agg., in evening.
Headache, throbbing all over, agg. cold air and motion.
Reduced falling of hair,.
Both ears stopped after “flu,” in cold air;hearing diminished.
Stitching pain below right ear (old symptom).
Pyorrhea;several large teeth loose,interfering with masticating food., One case had two remain in teeth used to anchor denture, offensive pus, much soreness in gums. improved sufficiently to avoid proposed added dental expense. Is a valuable remedy in pseudo-psoric mouth conditions of later life, comparing with such other remedies as Calcarea carb, Hecla lava, Phosphorus, Mercury, Silica.
I know of no other remedy having exfoliated and reduced the tarter of the teeth.
Red,scrofulous edges of the lids.
Nails brittle; hang nails.
