Can you take calcarea carb for weight loss? My answer would be – No. In Homeopathy we do not treat any condition or disease or state in isolation. A homeopathy remedy, be it Calcarea carbonica or something else, is prescribed only after a detail case history, which will include your current complaints, past medical history as well as family history. Your BMI will need to be calculated (Use this BMI Calculator), your reason for weight gain will need to be assessed, your diet and daily activity will need to be assessed.
Any underlying cause for weight gain, like hypothyroidism or PCOD will need to be ruled out.
Calcarea carb is not a magic potion for weight loss. It is just one homeopathy remedy that often suits patients who are fat and flabby. But there are many other remedies that suit such constitution. The rubric ‘Obesity’ in homeopathy repertory lists 195 remedies!
Here is the Calcarea carb. constitution for you:
Calcarea carb is fat, or at least in being inclined to be so. The children have pot bellies. The colour of the face is watery, pale. Temperamentally the patient is indolent, clumsy and slow in his motions, does not like to work. Calcarea carbonica acts per-eminently upon the bony structure, hence such patients have under-developed bones, disturbed growth, soft or bent bones. They dispose to glandular enlargement and swellings, polypi, etc.,
The Calcarea patient feels cold, and complains of cold head, and his feet are cold as “from wet socks”. Typical are partial perspiration, in children especially around the head, in men of the sexual organs with sexual weakness; women have too early and profuse menses with copious leucorrhoea. Peculiar is the Calcarea patient’s desire for eggs, while milk is not tolerated, often vomited.
So you can see the Calcarea carb is not a weight loss remedy. It is a polychrest homeopathy medicine which has diverse use. Do not take calcarea carb for weight loss blindly. Consult a homeopath in person and take help of a dietician and exercise to lose weight effectively.
Homeopathy remedies when taken according to symptom similarity, usually do not have any side effects, and that applies to Calcarea carbonica too.
