Calcarea fluorica Dosage & Potencies
The dosage and Potency of the medicine depend on the individual case.
Homeopathic medicines are prescribed based on symptom similarity, where the symptoms narrated by the patient are somewhat similar to the guiding symptoms of the treatment.
Your homeopathic doctor forms the totality of symptoms, and medicine identical to the disease condition is given; the more exact similarity, the earlier the curing process.
Lower potency is given when very few symptoms match the medicine to that of the patient.
These symptoms help doctors diagnose the disease condition only; there is a minor symptom of Calcarea fluorica.
Lower potencies require frequent repetition. You should give them 3-4 times a day till the expected result is seen.
This is considered as higher Potency; they are given when the majority of mind symptoms of Calcarea fluorica and the physical symptoms of Calcarea fluorica which are narrated by the patient get the perfect match.
Higher potencies are advisable to be not repeated very often; they act for a longer duration, so the second dose is repeated every 7 days or every 15 days once.
On giving 200C Potency, it’s advisable to wait for the symptoms to subside, which can be repeated until all signs in totality disappear.
Calcarea fluorica 1M Uses-
Calcarea fluorica 1 M should not be repeated; it is given once a month and waiting for symptoms to disappear.
This is very high Potency. It would help if you gave it only after careful case analysis, where all medicinal symptoms of Calcarea fluorica and those provided by the patient match with each other ideally.

It can be given for ganglions and cysts occurring on hands and wrists.
The process of potentization prepares homeopathic medications. In this method, the raw form of the medicine is taken and worked upon, and diluted to such an extent that all the harmful effects of the raw material are gone. All that remains is the medicinal or curative powers.
Homeopathic medicines are gentle and safe. They can be taken in the correct dose and potency by people of all age groups without fear.
Side effects of homeopathic medicines are an infrequent phenomenon.
It may so happen that the symptoms may subside temporarily and then come back with a renewed strength and severity. This occurs when the medicine has been repeated more than what was required.
