E-Class 3 Calcium Fluoride
Over the last few weeks you have been learning common mistakes and tips for getting good results with the tissue salts by learning the Foundations and Biochemic Principles.
This week we start to look at the first of the 12 Biochemic Remedies, No 1, Calcium Fluoride as well as showing you how it is used and why it’s important in the body. To help identify each remedy in your clients and family members we have added some tips for Success for learning about Tissue Salts.
Let’s take a quick look at some tips from other students who have been successful in applying this information.
4 Tips for Success for Learning about Tissue Salts
In my observations of students of this work, those who have been most successful in applying both biochemistry and facial diagnostics have done a four key things.
1. Observe – With each remedy, they have recognised the remedy signs and symptoms in their friends, family members, clients or acquaintances and made note of those connections, increasing their ability to remember the features of the remedies.
2. Consolidate – They have reviewed the information and created their own clinical reference book from the information. Each person has their own way of learning, so by creating your reference book, you build a repertoire of information that helps you remember the signs and symptoms for each remedy, and how to recognise them in your clients.
3. Practice – They have used the tissue salts and see the results. By using them you get to see their action and start to learnt through experience, not just from books.
4. Review – after they have practiced using the minerals they attended one or more of our workshops to reinforce the knowledge they already have and deepen their understanding.
So my suggestions as you go through the first mineral are:
1. Observe -Note down people who remind you of this mineraltissue salt symptom pictureand why. Many of your initial questions will come from people who you know who are ‘like this mineral’. Write a list of questions you have about this tissue salt and the people it reminds you of. Some questions may be answered as we go through each mineral. If not, ask at the end of the class, so we address your questions while you are doing that mineral.
2. Consolidate – How do you learn – audio, visual, reading, experience? Begin to create a reference book or folder for Tissue Salts. Remember that this becomes your Clinical Reference Book, that along with your manual, you can build and refer to in practice.It can include photos of your friends and family (taken by camera or phone) showing the signs for each mineral. Look out for tips on taking photos and ideas for creating your reference book in our next two e-classes. Before then, do at least one of these things
i. Set up a Tissue Salts folder on your computer, iPad/tablet or laptop. Inside this, set up 12 sub folders, one for each mineral. I suggest for ease that you name them 01_Calc Fluor,02_Calc Phos, 03_Ferr Phos … or similar, for ease of use.
ii. Get a Folderor book before next e-class that you can use for your hard copy Tissue Salts reference book.
3. Practice – start small and develop small wins. If you have someone who has sprained their ankle for example, rub on #1 Cream, Calc Fluor and give CalcFluor tablets, and see what happens: if it is indicated, try it and see the results. Make any notes in your Clinical Reference Book

4. Review, no matter how far you are through this course, you are invited to attend webinars to help review and apply what you have learnt so far.
Key points of Calc Fluor
Calcium Fluoride for Elasticity
For tissues that have lost their elasticity by becoming too loose or too hard.
No 1 in Schuessler’s Numbering System
Where it’s needed:
Calc Fluor is needed in the brain, eye lens, heart, lungs, kidneys, bones muscles and ligaments. It is essential where ample elasticity is needed, for fibres to stretch and return to their original form. It is the most important medicine for these support tissues and will stop them from hardening and where necessary provide elasticity once again.
Tissues affected by Calc Fluor deficiency:
If there is a deficiency, of Calc Fluor, muscle ligaments can dilate or stretch, but cannot contract and return to their normal form. Sprains and strains are an example of this, but it also affects
- Arteries, veins – distended and leading to varicosity
- Lymphatic glands
So lets take a look at each of these areas
Muscles and tendons a deficiency can result in sagging breasts, sagging abdomen,
- and for example in the ligament of the uterus, it can cause a change in the positioning of the organ, prolapse, etc
- Limpness of the tissues Calc Fluor and silica re important minerals to use in conjunction with on another. Care needs to be taken at the time to see if Calc Phos may be required.
- Teeth are held in place by very fine ligaments in the gums, if these ligaments relax then the teeth become loose in their sockets and can literally fall out when chewing solid foods.
- For movement to be smooth, fluid and easy, there needs to be sufficient Calc Fluor in all the cartilage in the joints
- To prevent symptoms of deficiency, it is important for children and pregnancy women to use Calc Fluor regularly.
- My daughter was holding my hand in a shop. She stepped one way and I stepped the other. Next minute she cried out in pain. She had dislocated her elbow. I took her to casualty where they put it back in place. The next step is to rub the elbow with Calc Fluor cream. The question is why is this happening? Ask some questions to find out…She was the third child in less than 2 years. I had twins then she was born 22 months later. While I was pregnant with her, I had my first ever filling. In nearly 40 years I hadn’t had a hole in my teeth – why now? I had just had 3 children using calcium to grow in my tummy, and when there wasn’t enough, she started taking it from my teeth or bones – my stores.Hence the old adage “have a baby lose a tooth”. This told me how long she had been deficient, and why she was showing symptoms of Calc Fluor deficiency now whilst she is growing. This can be prevented by taking 2 x Calc Fluor daily and 2 – 6 Calc Phos each day whilst pregnant and breast feeding. Calc Fluor rubbed on the belly will help it return its elasticity after birth.
Blood vessels require Calc Fluor in their construction. Certain muscles require Calc Fluor as their “fuel” if you like.
- The arteries and veins expand and contract immediately with each beat of the heart. They can only do this if Calc Fluor is present
- Varicose veins can restore the elasticity of the veins, but as it works very slowly is over a considerable time. Calc Fluor cream may be used as can Calc Fluor tablets in alternation with Silica.
Hardening of many kinds can be treated with Calc Fluor. Remember we are dealing with areas which are either too elastic or too hard. This may include
- Liver cirrhosis
- Shrinking kidneys
- Hardening of lymph nodes – consider not only the glands in your throat, but also hardened mammary lymph nodes, or nodes in the groin
Hardening of the fine fibres of the brain – primarily between the left and right hemispheres.
Consider the results of this
- Loss of memory
- Poor attention span
All of these things can be treated with Calcium Fluoride.
Calc Fluor and the eyes. Have you considered how much strain is placed on your eyes by our modern use of TV’s, computers, and electronic devices? Previous generations have had a lot of eye stimulation, looking out to the distance, then in close, in effect exercising their eyes. Looking at screens provide little stimulation, and a leads to reduced mobility of your eyes. Optical impressions produce stimulus, however the inflexible strain of starting at the screen doesn’t promote such a stimulus. Take a moment to explore how much stimulation and movement your eyes make while looking at your screen, and consider what else you could do to create more stimulation.
Meir Schneider of California is legally blind, yet holds a California drivers license.The key to his ability to see is in relaxing and toning his eye muscles. His Book Vision for Life will open your eyes to what is possible and proof when the musculature of the eye is relaxed and toned. To my knowledge he hasn’t used the minerals salts, but has addressed the problem at its source – creating the relaxation and elasticity of those muscles. Calc Fluor is the mineral that is important in this process.
Nails and skin
- Brittle or soft nails that bend easily are another indication for Calc Fluor
- Corns and callouses where the skin has hardened show signs
- Chapped or calloused hands show the deficiency has been present for a long time, as do feet with cracked around the edge of the heels.
- Hardening of the bladder
- Prolapse or hardening of the womb
- And many “Issues of menopause” which occur with the drying out and hardening of tissues.
Bones and Teeth
The Periosteum is the connective tissue covering the bones. Calc Fluor provides strength and solidity to the periosteum whilst Magnesium Phosphate (No 7) affects its hardness. These two minerals work well together and are considered essential for a slim, taught, athletic physique.
The proportion of Mag Phos and Calc Fluor in teeth is even higher, in fact much higher than in bone. Tooth enamel is especially rich in Fluoride. Other important minerals for teeth are Sodium Chloride (No 8) and Silica (No 11).
- Sharp or craggy edges of permanent teeth indicate a disturbed Calc Fluor content
Calc Fluor is particularly beneficial in chronic ailments involving the periosteum, tooth enamel and tissue with elastic fibres
- Symptoms are relieved by massage, hot poultices, or heat in general – consider those people who use a heat pack, or like sun on the affected part to relieve the pain. They are worse for cold. How else would someone demonstrate these symptoms? Who do you know who acts like this – what do they do?
- Pains in the hip, foot, knee joints, spinal column;
- Tenderness of the bone or skin (for example the shin) – possibly indicating pain of the periosteum covering the bone
- Flat feet, fallen arches
Apply Calc Fluor cream, and take Calc Fluor internally over a year or more.
During pregnancy the connective tissues become more elastic to allow for the growing baby.
- Calc Fluor tablets and cream will support the elasticity of the affected connective tissues.
- “Stretch marks” can be prevented by taking 6-8 tablets per day – for example 2 tablets before each meal.
- To increase the elasticity of the perineum, and reduce the need to cut the perineum at birth – For one month before delivery, massage the perineum, groin, and inner thighs with Calc Fluor ointment 2 – 3 times daily.
- The use of Calc Fluor in these ways also helps the uterus to regenerate and return to its normal size and elasticity.
Calc Fluor is very slow in its action, it may take months or even years, therefore it must be taken over a long period of time.
Calcium Phosphate and Silica work well in conjunction with Calc Fluor.
It is useful for chronic diseases of long duration.
Calcium Fluoride aims at the tissue of joint capsules, ligaments and tendons, teeth and bones, veins, and lymphatic glands.
For more examples, read your “The Clinical Science of Biochemic Therapy: Diploma Course” Manual pages 5-7.
Here is your action checklist for this week
1. Set up a Tissue Salts folder on your Computer/laptop/ tablet/ipad
- Create 12 sub-folders, one for each mineral using the Schuessler numbering system for example 01_Calc Fluor, 02 Calc Phos etc and/or
2. Get anA4 folder or Book that you can add information to that you can use as your Tissue Salts Reference book. Remember that you will probably want to add information to it.
3. Download your Bonus Pack, and fill out the order forms so that you can get started using the tissue salts with family and friends to gain some experience.
Your Manuals for this part of the Course are
- “The Clinical Science of Biochemic Therapy: Diploma Course” Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 and
- blue “Facial Diagnostics” book. Please make sure you ordered your copy in step 3 of the members page.
Use the view links, and when you have completed each section of 3 minerals, the download link will open. The manuals contain detailed information on each of the 12 Biochemic Minerals (Tissue Salts). You will notice a common structure for each manual in the Diploma Course section.
- What Schuessler said about each mineral(E.g. Calc Fluor p4)
- Information about each mineral – How it’s used in the body(E.g. Calc Fluor p5 – 7)
- Signs and Symptoms – what your client is experiencing(E.g. Calc Fluor p 8)
- Indications – what your clients are likely to say about their symptoms(E.g. Calc Fluor p9)
- Facial Diagnosis and signs– what you see (E.g. Calc Fluor p10) and Facial Diagnostics Book
- Prescriptions and uses of tablets and creams. What to do (Eg. Throughout Calc Fluor p5 – 9) Facial Diagnostics book
Next Week we will continue by looking at the Signs and Symptoms, and Indications for Calc Fluor.
If you aren’t trained in medical terminology, some of the words in the manuals will be new to you.
For each Mineral we have created a list of Medical phrases and their definitions. Use this for your own reference. Please add to this as you discover new words that you aren’t familiar with.
It can be useful to understand the root of the words,– for example all words ending in _itis, like tonsillitis, _itis means Inflammation, tonsil tells you where. Getting familiar with the root forms of words makes working out new medical words a lot easier.
It can be valuable to get a good medical Dictionary, for example the references below are from “Taber’s Cyclopaedic Medical Dictionary,” or Dictionary.Com Medical Dictionary at http://dictionary.reference.com/medical
