Calc Carb – Homeopathic Remedy

Calc Carb (Calcarea carbonica)

Calc carb is made from powdered mother-of-pearl – the shimmering, semi-transparent inner layer of the oyster shell. Indeed, people requiring this homeopathic remedy can be described as oysters without shells – flabby, pale and plump.

Calcium is a mineral essential for proper bone and teeth formation. The homeopathic remedy, Calc carb (calcium carbonate) thus helps to heal bone and teeth related problems.

Other names: Calcium carbonate, Carbonate of lime.

The information given on this site about homeopathic remedies is just a general overview. Classical homeopathy takes all the patient’s symptoms into account and prescribes upon the “Totality of Symptoms”, thus finding the precise remedy that matches the patient’s symptoms perfectly. 

Here, at The CMA we recommend that anyone interested in learning more about homeopathy and the fascinating remedies that homeopaths use should take an introduction course to homeopathy, which will help you to understand how to become a good home first-aid prescriber. This is ideal for ‘acute symptoms’. However, if you want to learn more – with a view even to becoming a professional homeopath, who is educated highly enough to be able to treat chronic conditions, you’ll need to be prepared to spend many years learning this vast and fascinating topic – along with anatomy, physiology and pathology, history of medicine, homeopathic philosophy, and much more. You’ll find both kinds of courses here on this site – head to our section on Find a CMA Member and search under CMA Registered Training Schools.
