Homeopathy expert Joette Calabrese, HMC, CCH, RSHom(Na) says when choosing a homeopathic medicine to counter a cold symptom or cough, look for the most outstanding features of the cold to match the most outstanding feature of the medicine. She recommends these essential single medicines:
Antimonium tartaricum – Antimonium relieves a wet cough with thick phlegm and difficult expectoration.*
Kali iodatum – Kali iodatum relieves burning nasal discharge, especially if there is a feeling of constriction at the base of the nose.*
Natrum muriaticum – Nat mur relieves a runny nose alternating with periods of dryness and stinging of the nasal cavity.*
Pulsatilla – Pulsatilla relieves non-irritating yellowish nasal discharge with dry nose at night, becoming runny during the day, and loss of smell and taste.*
Spongia tosta – Spongia tosta relieves a croupy, barking cough, especially after a chill or cold weather.*
