Calcium Sulphate. Gypsum.
In his later years, Schuessler was inclined to omit this element from his list of “tissue remedies,” but the experience of physicians familiar with it is against doing so, for while its sphere is limited, it has been, as stated by Schuessler, “successfully used in many diseases,” but he adds, “it does not enter into the constant constitution of the organism,” from which it might be inferred that at times other remedies are temporarily useful. Calcarea sulphurica is useful generally in suppurations, of pus mixed with blood, yellowish discharges from eyes, ears and nose, of this character; boils, carbuncles, wounds, expectoration, pimples, scabs, skin diseases, sores, etc., etc. Yellow colored suppuration, or discharge, especially if tinged with blood, a general swelling of soft parts threatening pus, or an established vent oozing pus is a call for Calcarea sulph.
This salt has proved curative in ear diseases, with matter streaked with blood, diarrhoea, boils, abscess, ulcers, carbuncles, festering sores or hurts, pimples, oozing scabs, herpes, catarrh, suppurating glands, etc., when the above-named conditions prevail.
