Oxalicum Acidum is an acid found in vegetables such as parsley and soya, although both only contain it in small quantities. On the other hand, its presence is more substantial in sorrel or rhubarb, where it comes in the form of calcium oxalate or potassium. It is an insoluble salt that cannot be absorbed by the intestinal mucosa. Therefore, its presence in the body can result in the formation of kidney stones.
Oxalicum Acidum or oxalic acid is a remedy used in homoeopathy. In its natural state, it is a diacid that can be harmful to one’s health. In fact, it may cause local irritation and blood circulation disorders. It is also available in the form of oxalate and easily binds with minerals like calcium. Moreover, it is important to know that absorption in large quantities can result in calcium deficiency. However, Oxalicum Acidum has therapeutic virtues that can be used in the treatment of many urology disorders. The homeopathic stock is obtained from oxalic-acid-rich vegetables like spinach and rhubarb. The remedy comes in the form of white crystalline powder.
Oxalicum Acidum is recommended in urology to treat any disorders that affect the urinary organs. It allows you to cure oxaluria, a condition characterized by the presence of oxalate in the urine. Besides, it is used to relieve renal colics in case of kidney stones, which are calcium, potassium and sodium residues that form pebbles and clog the urinary tract. Renal colics are characterized by severe kidney pain. Oxalicum Acidum is also prescribed in case of urinary disorders that are accompanied by weakness and asthenia. Indeed, it is administered to patients whose urine discharge is abundant or who have a frequent need to urinate.
To treat kidney stones accompanied by renal colic, take 3 granules of Oxalicum acidum 9 CH, 3 times a day. In case of oxalic lithiasis with neuralgia, take Oxalicum Acidum 4 CH to 15 CH. Given that each intake must be adapted to the symptoms, calcium oxalate stones must be treated with a weekly dose of Oxalicum Acidum 9 CH during 5 weeks. After treating renal colic, prevent the recurrence of kidney stones by taking a daily 5-granule dose of Oxalicum Acidum 200K.
Good to know: To prevent the reformation of kidney stones caused by an accumulation of oxalic substances, take 3 granules of Oxalicum Acidum 5 CH three times a day.
