Antimonium Tartaricum

Using Antimonium Tartaricum in dermatological and respiratory treatments

Antimonium Tartaricum is a homeopathic remedy made from a tartrate of antimony and potash. This homoeopathic stock corresponds to one of the main antimony salts that can be used for medicinal purposes.

Indications in pneumology  

Antimonium Tartaricum is mainly used in the field of pneumology . This homoeopathic remedy can be used to treat bronchiolitis, chronic respiratory failures, asthma, chronic bronchitis, acute bronchitis and respiratory tract congestion following abdominal surgery. The medication is especially recommended when these conditions are combined to the following symptoms: the patient has a rather dry cough and audible breathing problems due to an abundance of mucus in the pulmonary alveoli and in the bronchi, which later become congested. Moreover, the patient’s tongue seems to be covered by a layer of chalky, thick and milk-white plaster. Antimonium Tartaricum is also indicated for more serious conditions, manifested by bluish circles around the eyes, cyanotic lips and nose movements while breathing.

Dermatological indications and other indications of Antimonium Tartaricum 

Antimonium Tartaricum has wound-healing virtues, hence its use in the treatment of certain skin conditions. In dermatology, this homoeopathic remedy is mainly used to treat chickenpox, purulent and pustular acne (especially when it causes almost permanent bluish traces) and other rashes.

Dosage and administration method of Antimonium Tartaricum

For preventive treatment of asthma, take five granules of the remedy in 15 CH-dilution before going to bed. This treatment should last three months and should in no case  be interrupted. To relieve and treat bronchiolitis and asthma attacks, take five granules at a dilution of 5 CH every thirty minutes. In this case, Antimonium Tartaricum is combined to Ipecac and Blatta orientalis. The patient will first take Antimonium Tartaricum 5 CH, then Blatta Orientalis 5 CH 10 minutes later, Ipecac 5 CH 20 minutes after that and finally wait another 30 minutes before taking another dose of Antimonium Tartaricum.  This process will be repeated until the attack begins to dissipate. This treatment should last two days, and the spacing of the alternate intakes depends on the attack’s evolution. To treat acute bronchitis with wet cough, take five granules of Antimonium Tartaricum 9 CH, four to six times a day. This indication is particularly recommended if the patient has trouble expectorating and bronchial congestion. To relieve chronic bronchitis combined to respiratory tract congestion and expectorating difficulties, take five granules of Antimonium Tartaricum 9 CH every hour until the symptoms disappear. To relieve bronchial congestion after abdominal surgery, especially abdominal laparotomy, take five granules of Antimonium Tartaricum 5 CH. The frequency of intakes is three times a day. To relieve respiratory failure, it is necessary to follow the homoeopath’s or physician’s prescriptions. To heal chickenpox and treat pustular acne, take five granules at a dilution of 9 CH at breakfast and dinner. This treatment should last for three months.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
