Silica is a trace element (only present in the body in small amounts) but
is necessary for healthy bones, cartilage, skin and connective tissues. Silicas
medicinal use is limited to Homoeopathy. It is prescribed for patients with severe
sweating, weakness, and sensitivity to cold.
Silica, like most
Homoeopathic remedies, was made by recognizing the reactions of healthy individuals to
undiluted doses. The changes in the individuals were recorded.
When a Homoeopath sees a
patient with a set of similar symptoms to the recorded ones induced by sulphur, they then
prescribe it in an extremely dilute form. In a highly diluted dosage, Sulphur can
eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
