Kali bich is a yellow, highly corrosive textile dye. A chemical compound fully named Kali bichromicum, it is used as an ingredient in battery components, wood staining, printing, and other items of a poisonous nature. In homeopathic medicine, the chemical is diluted to nontoxic levels for treating pain and various physical complaints.
Also known as potassium dichromate and potassium bichromate, Kali bich is created through processing potassium chromate with an acid. It can also be extracted from chromium iron ore. When diluted to create a home herbal remedy, kali bich is normally processed through trituration, a method in which it is mixed with copious amounts of milk sugar.
As a medical supplement, it is available in both tablet and liquid form. Homeopathic practitioners use the substance for treating problems with mucus membranes, particularly those of the throat, stomach, nose, urethra, and vagina. Its use can clear excessive mucus, preventing colds from becoming sinus infections.
Sinus pressure can be relieved through the use of diluted Kali bichromicum. Fluid within the ear, as well as a tightness in the nose, ear, and throat, may also be alleviated by the substance. Other pressure problems, such as sinusitis or migraines, can be abated from an application of Kali bich. Dry cough, especially cough that produces stringy, thick mucus, can be relieved with the treatment as well.
Numerous types of pain can be relieved with diluted Kali bich. Joint pain, such as the inflammation caused by rheumatoid arthritis or the sudden change of weather, can be soothed with the compound. Earaches, sore throat, sinus pain, and back pain, especially between the shoulder blades, are other symptoms that can be treated with Kali bichromicum.
Some digestive disorders can be remedied with the chemical. Nausea and vomiting, especially that which produce yellow mucus, can be cured from this remedy. Diarrhea, particularly the kind that causes severe rectal pain, can be stopped by taking Kali bichromicum.
Gender-specific issues have been treated with Kali bich as well. Women have found relief from vomiting during pregnancy as well as a cure for thrush in the remedy. Men may be able to treat urinary tract infections and prostate pain with it as well.
Kali bich is extremely poisonous, a corrosive irritant that can destroy human tissue. Though available over the counter for purchase, it can be beneficial to consult with a physician before purchasing the compound. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a physician before using this treatment.
