CALCAREA PHOS or calcium phosphate is abundant in all tissues. Because it is a major constituent of bones, Calc Phos is also a chief builder of bone tissue, and the principal salt deficient in diseases of bone structure. It strengthens bones, and helps build new blood cells. A deficiency results in anemia, emaciation, slow growth, poor digestion and general weakness. Calc Phos is the cell salt for being generally run-down and helps bring about restoration after acute diseases and infections. Calc Phos and Mag Phos are the two remedies for cramps and spasms.
Acute: An illness or symptom of sudden onset, which generally has a short duration.
Anemia: A condition resulting from an unusually low number of red blood cells or too little hemoglobin in the red blood cells. The most common type is iron-deficiency anemia in which the red blood cells are reduced in size and number, and hemoglobin levels are low. Clinical symptoms include shortness of breath, lethargy and heart palpitations.
Calcium: The body's most abundant mineral. Its primary function is to help build and maintain bones and teeth. Calcium is also important to heart health, nerves, muscles and skin. Calcium helps control blood acid-alkaline balance, plays a role in cell division, muscle growth and iron utilization, activates certain enzymes, and helps transport nutrients through cell membranes. Calcium also forms a cellular cement called ground substance that helps hold cells and tissues together.
