Information about the agent

How do you recognize patients who need marum verum?

A classic homeopathic drug test has not yet taken place, so the appearance is based on practical experience.

Marum verum patients come across as sensitive but nervous personalities who appear very extroverted, cheerful and fun-loving at first glance. On the other hand, they react tearfully, melancholically and shakily to traumatic events. In this phase they are also very sensitive to noise; there is ear pain and hissing noises in the ears resulting in angry irritation. You often have trouble swallowing, have to clear your throat a lot, and suffer from a scratchy feeling in your throat. The nose itches, the sniffle runs without a real cold being present. Falling asleep before midnight is difficult for those affected, often caused by feelings of hunger. After eating, the patients are irritable and complain of a feeling of pressure behind the forehead. Cold drinks trigger nausea with greenish mucus.

The entire clinical picture can also result from trauma from a long time ago. It is therefore advisable to take a thorough medical history before starting treatment.
