As calcium sulphate is a vital part of our cleansing systems, its cell salt remedy helps us heal wounds, skin disorders, pimples, sore throats and other conditions which tend to suppurate - form yellow pus. Calc sulph helps cleanse colds and allergies if thick yellow mucus causes eye irritation, runny noses and nasal blockage. Calc sulph is most suited to allergic individuals who enjoy walking in the open air, but it can give us all a good cleansing when needed. It can also be the perfect follow up for Hepar sulph or Silica.
Calcarea sulph (calcium sulphate)
The man who established the Cell Salts and his Biochemic Theory, Dr. W. H. Schuessler, discovered this remedy. Its source, calcium sulphate is in our skin cells and blood primarily to prevent/minimize suppuration (pus formation and mucus accumulation) and disintegration of cells. Calcium sulphate deficiency leads to slow moving, stagnant colds and mucus conditions, as well as weak skin conditions. Thus the remedy, Calc sulph helps us clean out a variety of skin and mucus-related symptoms.
Colds, coughs, sore throat, ear issues, eye irritation and sinus congestions which secrete thick yellow mucus can benefit from Calc sulph’s cleansing, especially if symptoms worsen with milk products. Its mature colds suffer with headache, post nasal drip, choking cough, sore throat and heavy posterior sinuses. After colds, it helps clean out a lingering thick croupy morning cough.
In skin conditions with yellowishness, Calc sulph encourages healing in wounds, eruptions, pimples, acne and sores. It is particularly useful when sore has opened and continues to discharge. Thus it is commonly used after Silica, the cell salt often used to bring skin issues to the surface. If you have burning, itching, sweaty soles and the typical strong foot odors that follow, Calc sulph can bring much relief.
One factor that separates Calc sulph from the other Calc remedies (and a very similar remedy, Hepar sulph), is that heat makes everything feel worse. Though cold air may aggravate symptoms, those who need Calc phos most hate being too hot or in hot stuffy rooms and will kick off the covers most of the time. For its mental or constitutional range, most books refer to a brooding jealousy or sibling rivalry. Though most suited to individuals with allergies and skin problems who enjoy walking in the open air, Calc sulph can give us all a good cleansing when needed.

“The main guiding symptom for Calc sulph is a strong tendency for suppuration often with a characteristic yellowish discharge and fistula formation. The discharges last for a long time with no healing or only very slow healing. There is a strong tendency for jealousy, which can take the form of sibling rivalry and may focus on love relationships..... Strong personality.” –Roger Morrison, MD, Desktop Guide
