Calcarea carb in obesity.

Calcarea carb in obesity.

Posted by: Syam sunder

Dear Doctor,

For treating the obesity in children (Homeopathy for Childhood Obesity) Calcarea carb is mentioned in several books. In some books it is recommended to give Calcarea carb 200 for weight loss every week. If we repeat it after its action has ceased will it cure the obesity? What is the right course of administering it in children? In aged people it is not advised to repeat it. What is the age limit up to which it can be repeated?

Thanking you and wishing you a very happy new year,

Yours truly,

Syam sunder

Dear Syam,

I have personally not seen Calcarea carb cure obesity if it is not indicated by any other symptom. Obesity is not a disease in itself. It is the result of an underlying disease process. You need to understand the cause of obesity in a given case and then treat accordingly. Calcarea carb is not a magic remedy for obesity. It will help only when it is indicated. There are dozens of other homeopathic medicines like graphites, amm-carb, amm-mur, thyroidinum, phytolacca, iodium etc that can prove useful in a case of obesity. Remember – Treat the Patient, Not the Disease!
