Buy Antimonium Crud.

General description and domicile:
Antimony occurs in the mineral stibnite which is found in quartz veins in Europe and America. Stibnite occur as clusters of opaque black crystals that have a metallic sheen.

Warning: Antimony is very toxic when ingested. Very small doses can be fatal.

Part used and extraction:
Stibnite crystals are used to make the remedy.

Remedy preparation:
The stibnite crystals are heated to extract the antimony which is then triturated with lactose to form the mother tincture.

The name antimony (anti-monk) dates back to an anecdotal record of a monk, who observed that pigs seem to benefit from the substance and decided to give it to the members of his monastery. Unfortunately they all died.

In ancient times in Rome and Egypt stibnite was used as kohl by women for its cosmetic properties and by men to reduce the reflection of the sun on their cheeks.

Antimony was used to treat hoof damage on horses until recently and it was also used to treat cattle and fatten pigs. Antimony was included in the alloy brass bells were made of to improve the sound of the ringing and it is still used in small amounts to improve the color of gold in jewelry.

Antimonium Crudum was proved by Hahnemann.


Remedy profile:
People who eat more than needed and become sluggishly fat or even obese with poor, overloaded, digestive systems. Because of their need to overeat and the poor gastric system many react by developing a strong revulsion for food which could lead to severe sudden weight loss. A thick white coating on the tongue is always present (in fact, without it this remedy has a very slim chance of being successful).
