Therapeutic symptoms of homeopathic remedy Kali Sulphuricum, described by E.B. Nash in his book, Leaders in Homeopathic Therapeutics, published in 1898….

Yellow or greenish discharges from mucous membranes; cough loose and rattling.

Rheumatic pains in joints; moving from joint to joint.

Modalities: worse in warm room; in the evening, better in open air.

The chronic of PULSATILLA.

When writing upon the KALIS I left this one out. There is no proving (deserving the name) of this drug, but like some other remedies in our Materia Medica clinical use on the theory of Schuessler has developed some valuable guides to its homoeopathic uses. It resembles PULSATILLA in a number of its symptoms, and being a deeper acting remedy is sometimes useful to complement that remedy. But first let us not the similarities:

1st. Yellow or greenish discharges from mucous membranes.

2nd. Evening aggravation of fever symptoms.

3nd. Amelioration (general) in open air.

4th. Rheumatic pains in joints, or any part of the body, of a shifting, WANDERING nature.

5th. Aggravation in a heated room.

6th Loose cough, with RATTLING of mucus.

These are all very similar to PULSATILLA, and I have frequently verified them, in cases of catarrh of mucous membranes, whether acute or chronic, but especially chronic, or after the failure of PULSATILLA.

I once PRODUCED rheumatism of the joints with KALI SULPH., and it was of the above described kind, thus proving the symptom genuine, though up to that time it was only clinical. I always use it in the 30th, and I think that any after-cured symptom from a potency as high as the 30th will be found in accordance with our law of similia when thorough proving of the drug is made.

Dr. E.B. Nash 1838- 1917, was considered one of our finest homeopaths and teachers. He was Prof. of Materia Medica at the N.Y. Homoeopathic Medical College and President of International Hahnemannian Assoc. His book Leaders in Homoeopathic Therapeutics is a classic.
