This beautiful but very
poisonous plant grows in moisty meadow-lands and woods; it
will disappear when the ground is too dry. In ancient Greek
medicine this plant was known as 'the soul of the joints'
because it cured the acute pains of rheumatism and gout.
Analogous to the above Colchicum suits persons
who get complaints when their intake of liquids is too low.
They need liquids to keep the high amount of acid metabolic
waste in their body circulating; else this metabolic waste
will crystallize around the joints and cause rheumatic pains
or gout. In case of gout the pains will most probably start in
the greatest toe. The rheumatic complaints 'jump' from joint
to joint and are often accompanied by oedematous swelling. The
pains go from the left to the right side of the body. The
patient tries to stay completely motionless because every
contact or motion of affected bodyparts hurts extremely. They
will scream with pain if a rheumatic joint is touched. Touch
and movements cause pains like electric shocks. These people
feel worse in cold, moisty weather like most patients of
rheumatism, but they also feel worse in hot summertime because
then they loose body liquids through perspiration. The urine
of Colchicum personalities is scanty and dark brown; it can
also contain blood, albumin or sugar.

Colchicums are very sensitive to impressions:
light, sounds, odors, coldness, emotions, pain, contact, bad
manners, grief or misdeeds from others all result in pain and
in terrible nausea. They smell things other people don't
notice and get nauseous by it. The odor of cooking food can
result in vomiting and fainting (especially smelling fish,
eggs or fat meat make them sick). These patients are unable to
eat because thinking of, smelling of or thinking about food
all lead to nausea and throwing up. There's a burning feeling
or an icy-cold feeling in the stomach. The belly is filled
with gas. Cramps in the belly ameliorate by bending double.
Diarrhoa goes together with severe colic-like pains. The
patient sweats constantly and feels really exhausted.
People who need this remedy lie perfectly
still to reduce pain and disposition to vomiting. They also
feel worse by cold and moisty weather, touch and smells. They
generally ameliorate by warmth.
