Kali BichromicumBichromate Of Potash, Kali Bich, Kal Bich, Kali-bich, Kalium Bichromicum, Kali Chromicum
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed on the basis that in a tiny dilution like cures like, so while very dilute Kali Bichromicum may help, unprocessed Kali Bich may be best avoided.
Below are the main rubriks (i.e strongest indications or symptoms) of Kali Bich in traditional homeopathic usage, not reviewed by the FDA.
The special affinities of Kali Bichromicum are the mucous membrane of stomach, bowels, and air-passages; bones and fibrous tissue. Kidneys, heart, and liver are also affected. Incipient parenchymatous; nephritis. Nephritis with gastric disturbances. Cirrhosis of liver. Anaemia and absence of fever are characteristic. General weakness bordering on paralysis. It is especially indicated for fleshy, fat, light complexioned persons subject to catarrhs or with syphilitic or scrofulous history. Symptoms are worse in the morning; Pains migrate quickly, rheumatic and gastric symptoms alternate. More adapted to subacute rather than the violent acute stage. Mucous membranes everywhere are affected. Catarrh of pharynx, larynx, bronchi and nose, and a Tough, stringy, viscid secretion is produced, which condition is a very strong guiding symptom for Kali Bichromicum. Perforation of the septum. Chronic atonic catarrh. Polypus. Dilatation of stomach and heart.≡ show all authors ...
