This is a prescription only supplement. So you will need to schedule an appointment to see us, as ideally we need to take your history, feel your pulse, look at your tongue and other presentations to decide which celloids are suitable for your current condition.
This is just one exmaple of the duos that are currently available at the clinic.
Silicon dioxide and calcium fluoride (S.C.F)
Silica and calcium fluoride are vital for the integrity of bone, cartilage, skin and connective tissue, where they aid tissue stability, strength, flexibility and elasticity.
When prescribed by a healthcare professional S.C.F. is generally well tolerated at the recommended dose and may be prescribed for infants, children, pregnant and lactating women, and the elderly
The easy-to-swallow tablet can be halved or crushed to facilitate low-dose prescribing for infants and children
Background Information (according to Blackmore's training)
Connective tissue: Silica acts as an important connective tissue cross-linking agent, contributing to the architecture and resilience of connective tissue by building bridges between elastin, collagen and mucopolysaccharides (such as chondroitin sulfate and other glycosaminoglycans), which aids in tissue stability and rigidity.
Calcium fluoride is widely distributed in connective tissue (for example in cartilage, skin, muscles, nerves, valves and sphincters), where it is important for strength, flexibility and elasticity .
Bone and cartilage: In the early stages of bone development, silica is intimately involved in the incorporation of calcium and phosphate into bone apatite, helping to increase the rate of mineralisation of new bone. It acts as a nucleating agent or seed crystal around which bone mineralisation progresses, and thus is necessary for the initiation of bone growth (for example during foetal development and bone repair). Silica is also involved in the growth of cartilage.
In new bone, calcium and fluoride come together to form fluorapatite, in which the hydroxyl
ion in the calcium phosphate compound hydroxyapatite is replaced by fluoride ions during bone formation, creating a complex that is believed to be more resistant to bone resorption than hydroxyapatite.
Teeth: The fluoroapatite crystal, composed of calcium and fluoride, is also present in tooth enamel, where its stable structure gives the teeth tremendous strength and enables them to resist acid and caries. Silica is also involved in the growth of teeth.
