An abundant mineral in the earth's crust, silicia has a profound cleansing effect on the body. Long neglected and persistent ailments respond well to silicea therapy.
Silicea, derived from quartz or flint and an essential structural component of cartilage and bone, is used to treat chronic conditions that progress slowly over time. It is also very effective against seasonal ailments, such as colds. Like other homeopathic remedies, silicea is typically prescribed to relieve symptoms associated with particular personality types. Those most likely to benefit from silicea show such character traits as lack of direction, pliability, weakness, confusion, fear of failure and the kind of mental burnout seen in those who overwork to the point of exhaustion. Silicea is said to impart qualities that reflect its rock hard origins, structure in one's life, clarity, steadfastness and reliability. Also referred to as silica, silicea has a powerful restorative and stabilizing effect on the human body.

Not surprisingly, the homeopathic remedy is commonly used to strengthen dry and brittle hair, fingernails and toenails, to prevent hair loss and dandruff, to treat skin inflammations and blemishes; and to heal scars. Silicea also strengthens the digestive tract and enhances absorption of nutrients.

Preparation of remedy
The form of silicea that is used to make the remedy is a loose and powdery extract of silicic acid and water. Silicea occurs naturally in quartz and flint and in many plants, such as the herb horsetail. It is prescribed in any of the following dosages; 12x, 30x, 60x, 12c or 30c.

Treatment for splinters
