Use of Calcium carbonicum in the child

Calcium carbonicum acts on the body's own calcium balance. Since children are still growing and the bone formation thus has a higher requirement for calcium and calcium-containing compounds, this salt can be indicated here more often. Calcium carbonicum can also be helpful for changing the teeth from milk teeth to permanent teeth.

Specific symptoms and complaints for which the use of this Schüssler salt should be considered are:

  • brittle bones
  • Change of teeth
  • Susceptibility to infection
  • muscular injuries, e.g. from exercise
  • noticeable growth spurts
  • Disturbances in mental, emotional and physical development

The dose depends heavily on the symptoms to be treated as well as the age and stage of development of the child. A suitably trained person should therefore be consulted for the correct dosage alone.

Use of Calcium carbonicum in babies

The Schüssler salt No. 22 is used relatively frequently in infants and babies, just as it is in children. A frequent area of ​​application here is also in the area of ​​teeth, especially if it is delayed or painful. It is also often given to support healthy bone growth.
If development or growth seems to be slowed down in any way, the use of Calcium carbonicum can - as in children - contribute to a reasonable pace of development. However, if a delayed development of any kind is noticed over a longer period of time, medical advice should be sought.

Interestingly, the use of Calcium carbonicum has also proven itself in children who show an aversion to or intolerance to milk, including breast milk. The calcium naturally contained in milk can offer a possible explanation for this effect, but the exact mechanism is not known. An appropriate specialist should also be consulted for an appropriate dosage based on the baby's age and symptoms.
