In Homeopathy, Magnesia carbonica or magnesium carbonate is predominantly used for the treatment of all types of nerve pain such as toothache, facial neuralgia, right ocular globe pain and painful dismenhorrea.
Magnesia carbonica can also be used to treat gastric hyper-acidity and infant diarrhoea due to lactose intolerance.
Magnesia carbonica is useful in infants who have muscular laxity, a tendency to develop hernias and lactose intolerance.
The Magnesia carbonica child or adult (it particularly affects women) has weak muscles, hypersensitivity to noise, touch and the cold.
She is drowsy during the day and has difficulty in falling asleep at night.
The most notable characteristic is a sharp, stabbing, shooting pain that runs along the nerve networks.
Magnesia carbonica individuals have acidic-smelling perspiration. They have extreme sensitivity to noise and touch.
They do not tolerate milk, which causes vomiting and diarrhoea. They also have an intolerance of vegetables, especially artichokes.
If the Magnesia carbonica individual is female, she has a propensity towards developing pharyngitis before or after her menstrual cycle.
The symptoms are worse at night, with rest, before and after menstruating. The pain is relieved with movement or by leaning forwards.
