No. 2 – Calcium phosphoricum – The salt of bones and teeth

Recommended Potency: D6


Calcium phosphoricum No. 2 forms and influences the tissues and fluids within the protective sheaths formed by Calcium fluoratum. Calcium phosphoricum is involved in the formation of the inner bone and the dentin lying beneath the enamel of the teeth. It is also essential for blood formation.

Through Calcium phosphoricum, the organism regulates protein metabolism. Since horses often receive an excess of protein, there is often a deficiency in this mineral. Calcium phosphoricum is among the minerals that serve as functional substances in neutralising acids within the organism; if lacking, kidney or gallstones can form. When voluntary muscles cramp due to overload, for example, because the protein balance is out of control and acidity prevails, Calcium phosphoricum helps.

If the Calcium phosphoricum balance is burdened with neutralizing acids due to acid exposure on the organism, for example, through acidic feeding with a high protein content, the muscles tense or spasm. The heart also beats faster than appropriate for the current physical stress, situation, or condition of the animal. Both can be alleviated by administering Calcium phosphoricum No. 2.

Calcium phosphoricum is the remedy of choice for weakness and convalescence after blood loss, e.g., due to surgery.

Mode of Action

Calcium phosphoricum No. 2 acts very quickly in some areas of application (muscle cramps) and very slowly in others (dentin). Sometimes larger quantities of the mineral are necessary, and in some cases, it must be administered for a long time before treatment successes, such as bone problems, are achieved.

Signs of Deficiency and Functional Disorders

Anemia, muscle cramps, tingling numbness, sensitivity to weather changes, sudden sweating, barking cough, rapid pulse, nervousness, protein allergy, osteoporosis, growing pains.
