Kali Mur And Congestion

Any discharge that is white or grayish-white calls for Kali Mur or potassium chloride. This indicates the second stage of congestion – whether in the nose, throat or lungs. The first stage is usually a clear, watery discharge and the third stage is a yellowish discharge. This salt is very useful for congestion in the chest, particularly for congestion in infants. Among the tissue salts, it’s one of the primary congestion remedies. Kali Mur is essential in the formation of fibrin in the blood and when there is a lack of it, a white discharge is the result.


There are physical, mental and emotional symptoms that call for the tissue salt Kali Muriaticum or Kali Mur for short.

Kali Mur is an excellent remedy in the early stages of deafness when it is caused because of a blockage of the Eustachian tubes. This could be due to an infection or due to mucous blocking the tubes. It also helps lessen the pain of an earache which comes on due to exposure or changes in atmospheric pressure. Taken at the right time, it also clears out the sinuses and gets rid of a sick headache that comes on with a cold.

Kali Mur is the second line of attack in any fever and it is very often used with Ferr Phos to fight a fever and bring the temperature down. It is also very helpful to relieve the pain of rheumatism.

Kali Mur is a great remedy for the skin too. It helps when the skin gets very dry and there are dry, white, scaly discharges from the skin. It is of great benefit in children’s eczema especially when it affects the face. The low potencies, when dissolved in water make an excellent first aid remedy for burns and blisters. It is a great ‘healing’ remedy and helps wounds stop bleeding and heal faster.

Kali Mur has a strange effect on the mind. The person firmly believes he should starve if he is ill in order to get better. He also has very restless sleep and gets startled out of his light sleep at the least disturbance. Kali Mur is a good brain medicine as well and Dr. Schuessler firmly believed that without fibrin, no new brain cells could be formed.

Hi Raj,

Please do not try remedies at home when it happens to be your baby. I'm sorry for the late reply - but I must reiterate that any problem with babies can become serious very soon so they must be under the care of a pediatrician. I do hope your baby is well now.
