Antimonium Tartaricum, also known as “Ant Tart”, is commonly used in homeopathy and and has many uses.
Antimonium Tartaricum uses
Ant Tart is used to treat patients who are suffering with Bronchitis. Symptoms include a rattling and wheezing cough and a build up of mucus in the chest. The patient may have episodes of coughing, together with shallow breathing that tends to alternate.
The patient may also feel sweaty and have a temperature. The patient feels weak to the verge of fainting. Coughing may become a problem where fatigue sets in, so the patient is unable to cough up any mucus. The cough may produce vomiting. Children with this illness find it hard or near to impossible to swallow and may also feel pain as a consequence of having to swallow.
Ant Tart can also be used as a remedy for chicken pox and works especially well before the symptoms have presented themselves. It can also be used for headaches where the pain feels as though it forms a tight band around the head and the eyes feel better when closed.
Lastly, Ant Tart can be used for colds, which produce excess mucus that tends to go straight on to the lungs. The patient may also feel weak and finds it hard to breath.
Seek professional help
As with all homeopathic remedies it is advisable to seek advice from a qualified Registered Homeopath to make sure that the remedies used fit the symptoms fully.
