Cough character – The most characteristic cough of Stannum is LOOSE. Expectoration thick, yellow or green, Sweet or saltish ( Kali hyd. or Sepia ).
Aggravations – Singing, laughing, lying on right side (left side, Phosphorus )
Concomitants – Empty WEAKNESS IN STERNAL region. Great general exhaustion or weakness; can hardly talk loud on account of the weakness in the chest. All the weakness seems to center there. Sweats night or morning most on back.
Several remedies have the sense of weakness in the chest, such as Carbo veg., Phosphorus acid, Spongia and Sulphur. The Carbo veg. is worse in the morning on washing; Spongia after walking; Phosphorus acid in young people who are growing too fast, or in onanists. Sulphur in the peculiar Sulphur subjects of psoric tendencies. Expectoration thick green, comes also under Pulsatilla and Kali iodatum. This is one of the remedies which certainly disproves the theory that the metals cannot be dissolved so as to be potentized, for I have seen the most positive and convincing cures made with this remedy in the 500th (B & T.), and even much higher. So also with Ferrum, Gold, Platina and Zincum met. Theory and prejudice must stand “from under.”.
