Does your body have trouble breaking down thick, ropy, sticky, yellow, tough, stubborn mucus? This congestion expert can help our bodies figure out how to clean house– relieving symptoms of sinus pain, post nasal drip, pain at the root of the nose, hawking, nasal blockage, gagging coughs, etc. Related nausea, wandering joint pains and frontal migraine-like headache symptoms can enjoy its relief as well. Symptoms feel worse in the morning and in hot weather but better for heat. If mucus suppressants, pollen, or beer are in the picture, that’s more support for Kali bich.
Kali bichromicum (potassium bichromate)
Insights From the Experts:
Common traits of all Kali’s: conservative, regular, proper, down to earth. “Lots of emphasis on morality and what is right, what is wrong...Each of them with a slightly different flavour.... [Kali bich] Something gluey about them; carries the properness of the Kali’s a little bit further; goes into details; the perfect bureaucrats” [Morrison]

More Detailed Description:
Kali bich specializes in symptoms related to mucus membranes of the airways (nose, throat and lungs) and foodways (stomach and bowels), but can relieve a particular pain pattern as well.
After this cursory review, the details get rather graphic. Beginning with the sinuses, the thick, ropy, yellow to green, sticky, stringy, stubborn, smelly mucus crusts up in the nose and fills the sinuses causing choking post nasal drip, a stubborn cough to clear the throat, hoarseness and pain especially at the root of the nose. As mucus accumulates overnight, morning becomes a torment of blocked nasal passages with stubborn hacking, hawking, gagging and coughing. The cough, of course, can be very stubborn and painful. These symptoms often include a sore throat that feels dry and the pain may extend to the ears. If sinus medicines have suppressed nasal-sinus symptoms, Kali bich will often loosen up the problem.
Its sinus headaches and mostly frontal migraine-like pains may come on at the same time every day and start in a specific spot (above the eyes) then extend out. They are worse in the morning, at night and for motion.
Its indigestion is often beer related and has empty sour belching. It can lead to vomiting and slimy diarrhea, especially in the morning. Food may sit like a big load and cause cutting pains.
Kali bich’s sore, stitching, as if bruised, wandering but ‘in one spot’ pains usually come and go suddenly. If these pains occur in weak limbs, joints, or achilles tendons, Kali bich is likely to bring relief. Its headaches and abdominal distress symptoms may have similar wandering pains.
Chilly individuals who are sensitive to cold (especially on the back of the neck), yet cannot take much summer heat are prime targets for Kali bich symptoms. They tend to avoid mental and physical exertion, are sensitive to allergies, and prefer to live an orderly life completely by the rule book. Regardless of the lifestyle, we can all benefit from Kali bich’s cleansing relief when congestion calls for it.
