You’ll want to make sure you have this one on hand in prep for the upcoming cold and flu season.

It relieves colds with yellow nasal discharge. 

Kali sulph is found in the epithelial cells of the skin and mucosa.  It helps to carry oxygen to the cell structure by regulating the internal breathing of cells in the exchange of gasses.

Kali is credited with building new skin cells and is helpful where old ones have been damaged or killed due to disease.

It is effective in the advanced stages of inflammatory conditions where yellow, slimy excretions are present.  Oftentimes the body reacts slowly and the yellow discharge lingers. Kali is a catalyst for activating the body to finally resolve the illness. We use this in the 3rd stage of a cold.

With Kali sulph, think YELLOW: yellow discharges, yellow dandruff, yellow pus.

The discharges of Kali sulph can be slimy, ropy, stringy, lumpy, watery and yellow or greenish.

If you see a yellow coating on the tongue, this is an indication for Kali sulph.

Coughs with yellow slimy or watery expectoration also call for Kali sulph.  In this cough, often the mucous slips back into the throat causing it to be swallowed. It’s the 1st remedy to think of when coughing up globs of yellow mucus. 

Deficiency in Kali sulph can cause dryness of the skin and mucous membranes, so it can be used in conjunction with Natrum muriaticum, The Water Balancing cell salt.

Mentally, individuals in need of Kali sulph will have a changeable mood. They may be impatient, moody, easily angered, hurried, and weepy.  They will crave and demand specific things and are irritated when they do not get them.
