Peter's Note: An excellent
constitutional portrait is provided below
for Antimonium Crudum. I have been unable to find a good one
specifically for Antimonium-tar. However the symptoms covered
by any Homeopathic are the sum total of its individual
constituents. Therefore the Constitutional symptoms of
Antimonium-tar will be the totality of symptoms as represented
by Antimonium crudum and tartarate separately. In essence
this means that the Mental symptoms depicted below combined
with the acute symptoms outlined above will be a
representation of Constitutional symptoms for
Generalities You will be
surprised, when studying full provings of this substance, to
notice that all the symptoms seem to centre about the stomach;
it does not matter much what kind of complaints he suffers
from the stomach takes part in it.
The pains disturb his stomach and bring, on
nausea; with his headache he is sick at the stomach; with all
complaints his stomach is out of order, and, on the other
band, whenever he disorders his stomach he is sick all over.
Complaints that manifest themselves through the stomach very
frequently need this medicine.
First in importance are the mental symptoms
showing the type of constitution likely to need this remedy.
It produces a very serious state in the mind, an absence of
the desire to live. It is well known to physicians that the
case is a serious one if the patient has no desire to live;
life is a burden. When I hear a patient say:
"Oh, doctor, if I could only
I do not like such a case; there is some
deep-seated trouble in the economy that is hard to remove.
Something is threatening, and when it comes it is a common
thing to see the patient actually die.
You will find this especially in a low,
lingering, continued fever, such as typhoid. This remedy has
all the prostration of typhoid, and it has the continued type
of fever as well as the intermittent and remittent. The
prostration is similar to
Ars. have overwhelming fear of death, while
this medicine has loathing of life; and so they both part
company. Ars, has overwhelming restlessness, this
remedy is seldom restless. Ars . has an intense
thirst, this medicine is thirstless.
So even though both these remedies have
excessive exhaustion with continued fever, we see they have
features dissimilar enough to make them wholly distinct. Such
a typhoid will sometimes be seen in young girls about puberty
who are threatening to go into chlorosis. They have loathing
of life, but it is a hysterical loathing of life.
Moments of great exhaustion, sudden attacks
of weakness and fainting. You will commonly find another
feature with this, not coming at the same moment. but
alternating with it, or only present at times, namely, these
over excitable, intense, nervous, hysterical, ecstatic young
girls and women are overcome by mellow lights such as flow
through stained glass windows or the mellow light from the
moon in the evening.
That is, what is meant when it says in the
"Sentimental mood in the
It is a hysterical state, a disorderly
outburst of the affections, such affections as can be aroused
only in one who is sick, or one who is unbalanced in the
general nervous system.
This kind of patient gives us the mental
state and constitution of
Ant. crud., and along
with such mental states the physical conditions seems to
strike to the stomach, as it were.
We have running through this remedy a general state that
you should keep in mind, that is, a gouty or rheumatic state,
in which the symptoms change with the changes of the weather;
worse in cold, damp weather, worse from cold bathing, better
from the heat of a hot bath, worse from taking sour wine, and
worse from stimulants of any kind.
When you use the expression "worse from wine," it is not
only important to know that the patient is worse from wine,
but also the character of complaints that are worse from
This patient becomes easily intoxicated, but the physical
symptoms are more disturbed than the mental; his gouty
symptoms are worse from sour wine; all the pains and aches of
the body are worse from sour wine; headaches come from this
cause and the gastric disturbances are greatly aggravated from
This patient is worse at night, worse in damp weather,
worse from damp cold, better from lying down quietly, better
from applied heat, but much worse from over-heating and from
radiated heat, and in a warm room.
Many of the symptoms come on in the sun's rays and from the
heat of an open grate. The open fire is wholly against the
Ant. crud. patient.
A child with whooping cough will cough more after looking
into the fire. Such things are queer; they are so strange that
there is no philosophical hypothesis to explain them, no
theory that looks toward an explanation, but they are facts
which we must accept.
