Kali Bich's (potassium bichromate),specialty is tough, stubborn mucus that sits thick and ropy in the sinus. This sticky, yellow to green mucus is the culprit behind sinusitis, post nasal-drip, stubborn, hawking coughs, hoarseness and pain, especially between the eyes.
If congestion moves into the chest, Kali bich helps painful stubborn croupy coughs. Dry, swollen, sore throats accompanied by pain that may extend to the ears also fall under the domain of the powerful Kali Bich, and if sinus medications have suppressed nasal-sinus symptoms, call in this remedy to loosen up the problem.
Its sinus headaches and migraine-like pains may come on at the same time every day and start in a specific spot then extend out to one side or the whole head (bones included) depending on the severity of the sinus congestion. They are worse in the morning, at night and for motion. Like Kali mur, a white coated tongue is likely to be on your symptom list.
Kali bich's sore, stitching, as if bruised and wandering but 'in one spot' pains usually come and go suddenly. If these pains occur in weak limbs, painful swollen rheumatic joints, a sore achilles tendon and certain cases of sciatica (left sided, better walking), Kali bich is likely to bring relief. These same wandering single spot pains apply to its headaches and abdominal distress as well. Though it sounds odd, these pains may be the only relief from its cold symptoms as Kali bich's ailments do not like to coexist.
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. Whether your lifestyle is regulated or foot loose, we can all benefit from Kali bich's great relief now and then.
