Silicea Dosage and Repetition

The dose of the medicine and the necessary repetition depend upon the individual case.

Generally, if the pus hasn’t yet started to form, and the affected part is hard and painful, the lower potency is used.

This helps in hastening the suppurative process and eventual healing.

In conditions where the part affected shows a full-blown abscess which is painful, Silicea is used in higher doses like 200 or 1M.

This helps in the bursting of the bump, the release of the pus, and further healing and new healthy tissue growth.

Silicea Side effects

Silicea is known to expel foreign bodies.

So if you have some implant in your body, remember to tell your homeopath about it as using Silicea here may lead to accidental expulsion of the implant.

In skin conditions like a burst abscess or a keloid, Silicea helps to reabsorb the scar tissue and helps in forming healthy new tissues.

In such situations, careful monitoring is essential as some underlying skin infection may accidentally get reabsorbed into the body.

Use of Silicea as a Tissue Salt

Tissue salts help in restoring the mineral imbalances in your body.

They also promote the body’s natural healing process.

Deficiencies of tissue salts lead to several small and seemingly insignificant symptoms, which can have severe repercussions on your health if left unattended for a long time.

Tissue salts help in replenishing the mineral deposits in your body.

In homeopathy, Dr. Schussler advocated the use of 12 tissue salts. These tissue salts are used in extremely low potencies of 3x, 6x, and 12x.

Silicea is one of the 12 tissue salts.

Lack of silica in the body can give rise to various complaints like dry and damaged hair, brittle nails, recurrent infections of the respiratory system, dry and dirty skin, lack of general vitality, anxiety, and nervousness.

Silicea 6x or 12x is generally given as a supplement to the homeopathically chosen remedy.

Its dosage is usually four tablets two times a day in adults and two tablets two times a day in children.
