The Soul of Remedies – Calcarea iodata

Dr. Rajan Sankaran shares his remedy picture of Calcarea iodata. The main feeling in Calcarea iodata is that he may be terribly disappointed or betrayed by the person on whom he is dependent.

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.

Physical symptoms:

  • 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.

About the author

Rajan Sankaran

Rajan Sankaran, MD (Hom), is reputed to be a clear and original thinker and is best known for his path breaking concepts in Homoeopathy. His understanding of ‘disease as a delusion’ followed by his discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms and the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states. The Sensation method has now evolved into a more comprehensive and synergistic approach, which strongly advocates to encompass and integrate the old, classical and traditional approaches with the latest advances.

This academy primarily focuses on imparting advanced clinical training to students and practitioners, integrated with a homoeopathic healing centre.
