Kali-carbonicum

 Kali Carbonicum is one of the deepest acting and most fundamental of all our remedies. It is one of our most important remedies in the treatment of arthritis, catarrhs of the respiratory tract, asthma, peptic ulcers, and even malignancies.

The Kali Carbonicum patient can broadly be described as compulsive - rigidly adhering to a code of ethics and rules. It is very difficult for the patient to express feelings and he exercises strong control over his emotions. Duty is one of the most important concepts for the Kali Carbonicum constitutional type. He will not park in a yellow zone. He will always return to a shop to give back change if he was given too much. He sees things in black and white. The patient is often very stoical. He neither complains about (nor notices) the stress he is under until the situation is very severe indeed. Things outside his control are very upsetting. We may find fear of the dark (unseen), of ghosts (the immaterial), the future, but mainly fear of diseases especially that disease is about to appear (impending). Often the patient feels the fear somatically, especially in the solar plexus. It is noteworthy that in Kali Carbonicum the pathology does not progress to either depression or confusion or deeper mental states. Instead the pathology is confined mainly to the physical body.

Kali Carbonica
Kent says: "The Kali carb. patient is a hard one to study, and the remedy itself is a hard one to study. "
And Farrington says that " Kali carb. is indicated in a great variety of diseases, but is a drug much neglected in practice", perhaps because, except in a few of its uses, as in asthma and pneumonia, it does not appeal strongly enough to the imagination, and therefore is not - so to speak - "on the spot".
