Calcarea iodata is a mineral remedy. It belongs to the tubercular miasm. The main feeling in Calcarea iodata is that he may be terribly disappointed, betrayed, hurt or even starved (Iodum) by the person on whom he is dependent (Calcarea).
There is the dependence and need for security of Calcarea (group IIA), but at the same time there is the need to be very hard and strong, prepared for this betrayal (Iodum – halogen group).
Calcarea iodata persons are very pleasant company, always very cheerful, making people laugh and feel happy in their presence, always smiling and being agreeable, gay and mirthful.
At the same time, they can be quite diplomatic. They rarely contradict or go against anyone. They are very tactful, and have no clashes. I had a case of a doctor who had affairs with eighty women at the same period of his life. Each woman knew about the others but he was so nice and diplomatic that there was never any problem. He did well on Calcarea iodata.
Calcarea iodata has a marked tubercular element and these people show changeability, desire for change and activity, and love of travel, as is seen with other remedies of this miasm.
Calcarea iodata persons can be very aggressive, yet they are full of fears. They get angry very rapidly and are very impulsive, though this aspect may not be seen often.
- Very hot patient.
- Usually emaciated but can be very obese. I have found that when prescribed correctly, obese Calcarea iodata patients lose weight.
- Enlarged, hard glands.
- Thyroid affections, palpitation, increased appetite.
- Sudden violent pains.
- Cheerful, gay, mirthful.
