Cell Salt Series: Yellow? Think Calc sulph

Calc sulph, Joette Calabrese

When you think of “yellow,” you may think of bananas, sunflowers, rubber duckies or even a yellow submarine! Instead, I would like you to think of the cell salt Calc sulph.

As we continue with my blog series on cell salts, next up is Calcarea sulphurica. It’s great for infections, especially those with a yellow hue.

Even acne presenting with a yellow tinge responds well to Calc sulph. For dental or bone infections? Calc sulph is an excellent choice. Frankly, when any infection arises, Calc sulph can also be added (in tandem) to whichever remedy best fits the picture for that specific infection.

Infected wounds most assuredly call for Calc sulph. If there’s suppuration, drainage, an abscess or if the injury doesn’t heal readily, think of Calc sulph.

Let’s say you cut yourself. From previous experience, you know every time you get a cut, it becomes infected. Using Calc sulph to avoid that infection might be a good thing to consider.

I used to discuss using cell salts prophylactically more often, but I’ve become more conservative about it now. Many of my students and clients are using several remedies for chronic conditions, and there comes a point when we should keep a lid on the number of remedies we are taking.

But if you are sure an infection is imminent, in my experience, there is no reason not to enact a preventative plan.

And as they say on late-night infomercials, “But wait! There’s more!” As if all those uses weren’t enough to encourage you to own this remedy, Calc sulph can also help abort a cold when utilized at the onset of the symptoms!

When my son was younger, he was often plagued with sore throats announcing a cold. The first couple of times, I chose Belladonna. It didn’t help him.

So, the next time his sore throat began, I immediately used Calc sulph 6X. (And by “immediately,” I mean the moment he complained his throat was acting up.) It worked beautifully and became my go-to remedy for his sore throats.

Calc sulph has so many other uses — certainly more than I can discuss here in a blog post. In fact, as you have no doubt learned from this cell salt series, all of the cell salts are highly versatile, first-rate medicines. I encourage you to continue your study into the myriad applications for cell salts with my digital download (or as a 2-CD set), “Cell Salts: The Easy Homeopathy™️.”

I also devote an entire lesson to the power of the cell salts in my Gateway to Homeopathy II. However, in order to access this continuation curriculum, you must have completed the prerequisite Gateway to Homeopathy I Study Group. (Gateway II will then become available for purchase on your Student Resource page.)

Until then, be sure to read the other blog posts in my series on cell salts. I’ve provided a great deal of free information to help you acquaint yourself with the situations calling for each remedy. And most importantly, be sure to own them before you find yourself in need. There is nothing more frustrating than knowing which remedy would relieve your condition, and then not having it on hand.

As always, pass on the good news of homeopathy!

Joette laughingI 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.

    which is deeper in depth concerning cell salts between the cell salts digital download and gateway 2?

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

      The download has more information but Gateway 2 is more updated.

  2. Maryalice Alvarez says:

    I love cell salts. They have come thru when I needed help. I don’t do doctors so eating right and taking cell salts I stay well.

  3. Cherie says:

    Would you consider this remedy for yellow hypermineralisation of 6-year molars? If a child is already taking calc phos 6x and calc fluor 12x to strengthen (and space) teeth, would you add this remedy? Thanks so much for all your information!

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

      I would not.

  4. Jodi says:

    If you are on a constitutional remedy, is it okay to take a cell salt to help with other health issues such as strengthening bones, hair growth, etc? By the way, I am currently finishing up the Gateway I class and excited to start the Gateway II. Thank you!

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

      No problem using cell salts along with a constitutional. In fact, no problem with using most of the protocols I teach along with a constitutional. (But your classical homeopath will disagree.)

      1. jodi says:

        Yes, she does! But the proof is in the pudding and I enjoy results over philosophy. Thank you for everything!!!

  5. Cyndi says:

    Can dogs take cell salts? Mine has u.t.i?

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

      Homeopathic medicines may be used for all animals.

    2. Regina White says:

      My dog was just diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. Im not sure what to give him.

  6. Debbie says:

    I cannot seem to find calc phos in a 30x potency anywhere. Do you have a link that I could use to purchase? Thank you!

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

      Boiron on Amazon.

  7. Chari says:

    You mentioned that calc sulph can be used for infections “in tandem” with other remedies. Does this mean within a few minutes of taking the other remedy or hours? For example, if one was using hepar sulph, how long would they need to wait before taking calc sulph?

    1. Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH says:

      Minutes apart is usually fine.

      1. Chari says:

        Thank you for the response!
