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.

Can I take kali bichromicum 30. Four drops every day. I feel very relaxed after taking it. Please advise.

Homeopaths may prescribe this remedy for problems with mucous membranes, digestive disorders, migraines, and rheumatic pain. The creation of this homeopathic remedy involves diluting the original potassium bichromate with lactose, distilled water, or alcohol until it is so diluted, no molecules of the original substance remain in the finished product.

Placebo effect? All of those across the land who have found relief are only experiencing a placebo effect? Right. O.K.

Have you ever taken aspirin? Isn't that a poison if too much is taken?

@ceilingcat: If you were to find out the type of poisons that are used in everyday pharmacy meds you would really flip if this little poison is so dangerous.

I've been taking medicines for the past year trying to help with my COPD and every one I've taken has broken me out or I've had an adverse reaction to them all together. So why ask a doctor about taking these homeopathogenic meds when that will take money from them and the pharmaceutical companies that keep them stocked with new poisons to feed us. It is all a big money racket.

I don't see anything wrong with trying kali bich as a natural remedy, but use your judgment. I also think if you're pregnant and you want to use it for help vomiting, you should really consult a doctor. After all, this substance is poisonous! I personally don't think it would be a very good idea to use it while you're pregnant, but only a doctor can really tell you for sure.

@ceilingcat - I can understand why you feel that way. But you have to keep in mind that the amount of kali bich that is used in homeopathic medicines is much less than you would use to dye something. The whole point of homeopathy is that you're using substances in a very, very diluted form.

I've personally used a lot of Boiron homeopathic products (that's just the brand my local store happens to carry) and I've found them to be very effective. And I've never had any bad side effects or known anyone else who has either. So don't judge it so harshly until you try it out for yourself!

I know a lot of people who use homeopathic products, but I just can't understand it. Kali bich is used in batteries and wood staining, and is considered poisonous. So why in the world would you put even a small amount of it in your body?

Also, I doubt it's even effective. How can something that is corrosive and poisonous help with sinus issues, or gender-specific issues? It seems more likely that you might accidentally poison yourself instead of getting relief from health problem!

I really think anyone who gets relief from homeopathic products is just experiencing a placebo effect.
