– Jan Scholten

Kali bromatum has a very nice picture with its characteristic symptom ‘delusion he is the object of God’s vengeance’. This symptom shows us the various aspects of the remedy: guilt, religion, psychosis, duty.

Concepts Kali Bromatum

Principles, duty Guilt

Closed Restlessness, escape

Optimism Passion, instinct

Work, task Psychotic

Family

Group analysis

The group analysis gives us the theme: they feel guilty when they don’t do their duty. As long as they can fulfil their task and keep doing their work, everything is fine. But when they can’t do this anymore they start to feel very guilty. They always feel a strong urge to work, they like having something to do. When they aren’t busy doing something they can’t get rid of their energy. So they start wringing their hands. It is as if they have to have ‘a job at hand’ in order to feel happy.

Another variation is that they may feel that passion should be trustworthy. You are allowed to be passionate, but it should be within the context of a stable relationship, linked to your task as a partner. Duty and passion should go together. Problems may start if one of the partners becomes unfaithful or wants a divorce. Then they will feel cheated. They will either blame the partner, or start to ask themselves ‘What have I done wrong?’. This may lead to depression, sleeplessness or even psychotic states.

GENERAL ANALYSIS
The physiological action of this drug is not fully determined, yet it is quite probable that its chief action is upon the nervous system, affecting most prominently those portions of the spinal cord which receive and transmit reflex impulses, causing diminished reflex excitability of the nerve centers. It next acts upon the peripheral ends of the peripheral ends of the efferent nerves, causing paralysis and finally affects the cerebrum, causing dilated pupils, intoxication, weakness of mind, hallucinations, etc. The heart is directly paralyzed under its influence, while through spasms of the vaso-motor system it causes contraction of the blood vessels, followed by dilatation. It thus uses primarily a depressed circulation in the cranium and through out the body, lessening the blood supply, and thus causing, in connection with thee action upon the nervous system, functional paralysis of nearly all the organs and tissues of the body. The subsequent dilatation gives rise secondarily to congestion, exciting the depressed nerve centers to a morbidly increased action, both sensory and motor, giving rise to hyperaesthesia and convulsions, thus, according to Dr. Hale, becoming “homoeopathic to all the morbid conditions and symptoms in which it has been found useful by the allopathic school.” Upon the skin the action is quite characteristic. Aside from the peripheral anaesthesia before mentioned, it causes acne-like eruptions, especially upon the face, neck and shoulders, small boils, papules, pustules, and corroding ulcers.
