A recent study showed that the homeopathic remedy Kali Bichromicum 30c significantly decreased the amount of tenacious, stringy tracheal secretions in critically ill patients with a history of tobacco use and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Chest, a mainstream medical journal, published the double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Not only was the amount of tracheal secretions reduced significantly, but also extubation (removing a tube from the airway) could be performed earlier, and the length of stay in the hospital was shorter in the homeopathically treated group.
Kali Bichromicum is a homeopathic medicine that is commonly useful in treating sinusitis -especially when there is thick tenacious mucous secreted. Every study that is published in recognized medical journals will help to chip away at the prejudices that most allopathic physicians have against this holistic system of medicine that has been around for over 100 years.
