Can Calcarea Phos be used as calcium supplement?

I have been recommended to take calcium tablets regularly as I am now 45 year old and they say that every woman must take calcium tablets regularly after this age. My problem is that the calcium supplements such as Shelcal don’t suit me. I have always taken homoeopathic medicine for all my problems. I want to know if Calcarea Phos 6 x can be an alternate calcium supplement. And what should be the dosage? If the doctor has recommended 800 mg dose daily, how much of calcarea phos is equivalent to 800 mg of calcium supplement?

Dr. R.K. Manchanda responds
Calc Phos 6x cannot replace calcium tablets. Homoeopathic and biochemic drugs are used on specific indications and cannot be used as replacement therapy. You can either take replacement therapy suggested to you or consult a homoeopath, take appropriate constitutional treatment with Calcium rich diet.
