Source & History
Homeopathically prepared from calcium fluoride and found in the body in the Haversian canals which are channels in compact bone that contain blood vessels. Its presence regulates the hardness and elasticity of skeletal bone, teeth, glands, lymph nodes etc
Mentals & Generals: Groundless fears about financial ruin, health, heights, mice etc. unable to make a decision. Impatient, talkative, unstable. Unable to keep anything in mind for long
Particulars: While providing much of the hardness in our teeth and bones, this remedy also keeps many of our tissues soft and flexible. As the compound responsible for elasticity in our bones, joints, muscles, teeth and vein tissues. Calc fluor, is invaluable for tissues that are growing and developing by leaps and bounds. From growing bones to varicose veins and all the flexibility issues in between, this cell salt offers fundamental healing support. Problems like stretch marks, hemorrhoids, varicose veins, obstinate lower backache, lumbagos, weak ankles, loose or decaying teeth, muscular weakness and enlarged glands, uterine prolapse, insufficient lactation all respond to its support. As with Calc phos, it can make a big difference in slow growing, late walking babies and young children. Some books document its ability to minimize cataracts, and calcareous deposits. Source: H4H
Thanks for the comments.
Earlier it was thought that the spurs are a cause of the pain hence the surgery..without relief! The present day understanding is that the heel pains are due to the inflammation of the fascii hence the name plantar fasciitis.
What I meant to say is that Homeopathic remedies relieve us of the pain however the spurs may still persist. To my understanding the spurs cannot be "dissolved". This is what Wikipedia says :
An incidental finding associated with this condition is a heel spur, a small bony calcification, on the calcaneus heel bone, in which case it is the underlying condition, and not the spur itself, which produces the pain. The condition is responsible for the creation of the spur, the plantar fasciitis is not caused by the spur.
With due respect, I just wish to say that the practice of law and medicine are similar in one sense; as in a case study that you might have missed reading while the other person happen to read it some where and applied it in present the scenario. Sir, a vast variety of reading by different senior practioners on the subjects helps in clinical practice Thanks for such an elaborate reply.
There are many Homoeopathic remedies available in Repertory for Osteophyte changes in different bones. For example if you look for Calcaneous Spur, you will only find CONCHIOLINUM. The same way if you search Repertory (not Materia Medica) you may find diffeent medicines for different locations like Hekla Lava for jaws, Phosphorus, Mezerium & Silicea.
The Arena Diad & Cal Flour works some times but not always. So one should look for Individual Symptoms + Diagnosis+ Modalities etc. One should also look at other factors which can cause this type of spurs e.g. Hard Safety shoes, bad shoes, flat foot, Hypothyroidism, Vit D deficiency etc.
