Cell Salts, Joette Calabrese

Isn’t it annoying to attempt to use a rubber band that has lost its proper elasticity?

If it stretches too much, it won’t offer enough support. Conversely, a rubber band becomes utterly worthless if it can no longer stretch enough and snaps.

The same issues with elasticity can occur within our bodies!

Just like a rubber band, we humans need to have the perfect balance of stretchiness. If we stretch too far, we have one set of problems; if we don’t stretch enough, we have another set of issues entirely.

Malfunctioning rubber bands can just be thrown away.

But, luckily for us humans, (and animals as well), one cell salt can address issues at both ends of the elasticity spectrum: Calc fluor.

Too much elasticity causing saggy skin? Calc fluor. Too little elasticity causing cracking skin, chipping teeth or chipping nails? Calc fluor.

It’s an excellent medicine for women who are pregnant or have given birth. It immediately (and rather obviously) comes to mind as a remedy for stretch marks.

Think about it.

You get pregnant, and your breasts enlarge. After breastfeeding, they reduce.

You get pregnant again…they expand again…they diminish again…in…out…in…out. Their elasticity can eventually be lost entirely. After having a family, you may look in the mirror and feel as though your breasts belong on the pages of National Geographic! 

Calc fluor is customarily taken twice a day until the condition is very much better. Generally, we use Calc fluor in a 12X, but the easily obtainable Calc fluor 6X from Hyland’s works as well.

And again, the beauty of this medicine is someone can — at the same time — be experiencing a condition from both ends of the elasticity pole (too much or too little elasticity), and Calc fluor will address both conditions!

How tidy is that?

One other indication of a person’s need for Calc fluor is joints that easily pop out of their sockets.

I have personal experience in this department…although it’s a rather embarrassing story. (So, you won’t tell anyone, right?)

I was dressing one of my sons when he was about 14-months-old — as I did every morning. I pulled a sweater over his head and reached my hand up through the sweater’s little sleeve to pull his arm through.

I didn’t yank.

I just lightly pulled his arm, as usual. Well, he started screaming! And I do mean screaming! He was in obvious pain.

My husband rushed in, figured out that my son’s shoulder had popped out of the socket, and, luckily, was able to put it back in place.

For the moment, the world went back to normal.

Then about eight months later, in another highly awkward moment, I fell on my son — right on that same shoulder.

Well, his little shoulder popped out of the socket yet again. Of course, this time I was more prepared to deal with it and immediately put it back in its proper position.

But, I realized after this second event something was off with my son’s elasticity. So, what did I turn to?

Yes, right. Calc fluor.

And it worked! My son is now 30 years old, and his shoulder no longer pops out of joint, in spite of his daily workouts. (Although, maybe it’s no coincidence that I’m not dressing him every morning and pulling his arms through his sweaters nor falling all over him!)

So, whatever the issue with elasticity — whether too much or too little — think Calc fluor. It is a marvelously flexible remedy (pardon the pun).

P.S. If it’s more and more of my tips and tricks that you seek, I have produced a CD/digital download entitled, Cell Salts; The Easy Homeopathy™ to help you get a firm grasp on these surprisingly effective remedies. 

Because there are only twelve of them, they are much easier to get started with than an entire materia medica. Plus, I utilize the same system to teach you that I used myself when memorizing over 300 remedies for my certification exams. It works!

P.P.S. And, here are my other posts in my series on cell salts, with links for your convenience:

I am a homeopath with a worldwide practice working with families and individuals via Zoom. I'm also a teacher and most importantly, a mom who raised my now-adult children depending on homeopathy over the last 31 years. I lived decades of my life with food intolerances, allergies, and chemical sensitivities until I was cured with homeopathy, so I understand pain, anxiety, and suffering. You may feel that your issues are more severe or different than anyone else’s, but I have seen it all in my practice and in my work in India. My opinion is that nothing has come close to the reproducible, safe and effective results that my clients, students and I have achieved with homeopathy.

Call today and learn how homeopathy might just be the missing piece in your health strategy.

Joette is not a physician and the relationship between Joette and her clients is not of prescriber and patient, but as educator and client. It is fully the client's choice whether or not to take advantage of the information Joette presents. Homeopathy doesn't "treat" an illness; it addresses the entire person as a matter of wholeness that is an educational process, not a medical one. Joette believes that the advice and diagnosis of a physician is often in order.

    Thanks for the lessons….so can this cell salt help keep aging skin tighter??

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      The best way to look at this is if the skin is aging poorly or prematurely, then a medicine such as CF can certainly be considered.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Thank you, Joette! I’m using Calc fluor at the moment for my receding gums, but have noticed its benefits elsewhere as well! I learned about Calc fluor and receding gums from your Materia Medica, which I love!

  3. JC says:

    Could this be effective for pelvic floor dysfunction? Namely, a pelvic floor that is rock solid and very tight? The muscles do not move when a deep breath is taken in, and tampons and pelvic exams are excruciating.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      There are other, better chosen homeopathic medicines for this condition.

  4. Danielle says:

    Awesome!! Does this aid in general flexibility as well? (Muscular/fascial)

  5. bertina says:

    I’m using Calc Fluor and Silicea both for weakened Eyesight. It helps me!

  6. Narendra says:

    Thank you, Joette! I was not aware of the effects of elasticity so far. And CF, a tissue salt helpful to pregnant women and also to reduce the weight. This will be useful to prescribe for those who are looking for the remedy for above given cause. Thank you.

  7. Cynthia says:

    Can this be used while on the Banerji protocol I use for high blood pressure?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      We often use more than one homeopathic at a time as part of an overall schedule.

  8. Linda says:

    This cell salt (mineral) was a little miracle for me when the bottoms of my two front teeth began crumbling. If I hadn’t known about Dr. Scheussler’s cell salts, I would soon be needing veneers or worse. But I did know about the minerals and started taking Calc Fluor that very afternoon. By the next morning, the bottom edges were smooth and normal again. A year or so later, I noticed the same two front teeth doing the same thing – I hadn’t taken the Calc Fluor for ages. Again, I took the mineral and within a day, they were back to normal. So now I take the CF about 3 or 4 days a week. Very happy to hear it’s good for elasticity, too, Joette! I don’t know why scientists call a mineral a “salt.” We non-scientists know them as minerals!

    Oh my goodness Joette! So on time This was so interesting to read! I just got your Materia Medica and going to pull this up ASAP…I wonder I have hyper joints all my life…yet I have Lyme disease that has caused me to have painful tight muscles in my arms and legs… (oxymoron) lol and bells palsy that has made my eyesight bad…and a loose wisdom tooth from a blow. I wonder would this work for me? Thank you for sharing this!

  10. Eileen says:

    Would Calc Fluor be used for joints that popping? Or are there better remedies for that?

  11. Carole says:

    From the description of your son’s joints popping out, it sounds like he has Hypermobile Syndrome or hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.(any one with “bendy” or “elastic” joints can be classified as Hypermobile according to new guidelines from 2017. More is involved in hEDS dx.) Was he ever diagnosed with one of these conditions? My son and I have Hypermobile EDS and I wonder if Calc fluor could be beneficial not only for the joint instability but for a host of other symptoms associated with the condition. Any thoughts on that? http://www.ehlers-Danlos.com . Thank you

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I had no need to have him diagnosed.
      The condition was arrested.

  12. Donna says:

    Dear Joette
    Your cell salt post on Calc fluor is very timely for our family as I have a granddaughter whose knee has been popping out of joint recently. I have forwarded this info to my daughter and will be adding Calc fluor to my remedies.
    Also, my sister has been diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. Do you think Calc fluor could be beneficial for her? She has always had hyper mobility of joints and suffers with neck pain and depression.
    Thanks for making homeopathy practical!

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      I don’t comment on this forum on what would be good or bad for someone, so if your sister is interested in trying it out, she’ll likely find out.

      Our medicines at the least, do no harm.

  13. Merri Trifiro says:

    I also had hEDS, and my question s that if this product aids your body in naturally producing more collegen, people with hEDS have bodies that produce only faulty collagen on a molecular level. So I’m wondering just how and where Calc fluor works in the body, which might help to understand if it might help people with hEds.

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says:

      It’s not a synthetic that forces or manipulates the body to function in a particular way. Instead, it gently stimulates the body’s natural ability to correct the condition. If you want more than that check it out online. And my advice is to not overintellectualize the situation. There are no side effects.
