Owen Homoeopathics Ant Tart 6c 120 pillules
Antimonium tartrate has a tradition in homeopathy of being useful for the symptoms of noisy, wheezy coughs with copious mucous which may be difficult to clear. There may be a bluish tinge around the eyes and lips.
The Ant tart state comes on when the vitality of the individual is weak; there is a weakness and prostration with a pale face, cold sweat, bluish lips and much secretion of mucous. Where Aconite, Belladonna, Bryonia and Ipecac show intense symptoms, Ant tart is the opposite with little fever, coldness and relaxation thus it may follow remedies like Ipecac and Bryonia. Ipecac has a coarse rattling in the first days of sickness whereas with Ant tart this coarse rattling comes after many days of sickness.
Ant tart suits children with frequent bouts of bronchitis, from cold wet weather, rainstorms in autumn. No sooner do they get over one cold another one comes. The acute stage is not violent for them but they keep having these passive rattling colds. There is ulceration of mucous membranes everywhere.
