Mind :-

The remedy is prepared from the middle layers of inner part of the oyster shell. Thus one of the features of calcarea is protection and withdrawal. They withdraw and make a protective layer around them.

Another strong aspect of Calcarea is anxiety and fear. There is a theme of insecurity. The fears & anxieties centre around issues such as money, health. When these basic aspects are not secure, they develop strong despair.

The calcareas are constantly worrying about what others will think about them. Ref. "Delusion that others will see her confusion" Therefore there is a strong sensitivity to criticism. They get affected by their environment very fast and coupled with a lack of ability to meet a challenge, they become stubborn and obstinate.

Lack of initiative. But otherwise responsible workers. Slow but steady. However they are not too competitive or ambitious.

Plenty of fears and phobias, like fear of heights, disease, poverty, future, that something will go wrong.


Tend to be plump, tired and have weak resistance to infections. Usually have slow delayed development. They are nice, but obstinate. The child is usually curious, asking questions about religion etc. Plenty of fears and anxiety, esp. concerning security.

Lack of stamina is indicative of calcarea.

Calcareas are intellectual but the imbalance between the physical and mind is at fault. Due to this imbalance and also their passivity, they develop depression, despair and lose interest in work / business.
