Therapists mainly use the homeopathic remedy Mercurius solubilis for infections of the oral mucosa, throat and ears. It should also help with skin diseases and rashes and be suitable for the treatment of acute symptoms. It can be used as a support even in the advanced stage and in the event of severe pain or pus formation. Read more about the effects and use of Mercurius solubilis.

Was Mercury soluble?

The homeopathic remedy Mercurius solubilis was personally developed by the founder of homeopathy , Samuel Hahnemann. It is therefore also known as Mercurius solubilis Hahnemanni. Its starting material consists of a toxic mixture of mercury, nitric acid and mercury nitrate. It is used in an extremely diluted (potentiated) form. The homeopathic remedy is therefore not dangerous.

When is Mercurius solubilis used?

The potency of Mercurius solubilis is said to be useful in inflammation of the mucous membranes throughout the body, especially inflammation of the beginning and end of the digestive tract.

Inflammations of the lymphatic system, the skin and the entire connective tissue should also respond well to Mercurius homeopathy. With almost all inflammations that are suitable for a Mercurius solubilis treatment, the glands of the body are swollen and often painful. This applies in particular to the lymph nodes and the liver.

Many of the symptoms treatable with Mercurius solubilis are similar to the symptoms of mercury poisoning.

Diseases and conditions that respond well to Mercurius solubilis

  • Tooth decay and susceptibility to tooth decay
  • conjunctivitis in the eye
  • Sniffles
  • sinus infection
  • parotid gland inflammation
  • Cough
  • Aphthen
  • Angina and sore throat
  • otitis media
  • Diarrhea
  • intestinal inflammation
  • periosteum inflammation
  • Skin inflammation and abscesses

Typical symptoms and complaints that indicate Mercurius solubilis

  • heavy discharge that smells bad and is sore (for example, sweat, saliva, diarrhea)
  • dizziness
  • burning, stabbing or tearing pains
  • chapped lips and corners of the mouth
  • tongue coated yellow with teeth marks and bad breath
  • inflamed and painful lymph nodes, especially on the right side of the neck
  • salivation
  • great thirst
  • After a few bites, the food feels heavy in the stomach, with pressure and belching. But soon after eating, cravings arise again.
  • Diarrhea can be mucous, painful, bloody, undigested, and green
  • excoriating discharge from the vagina
  • Trembling of hands, head and tongue
  • Jumpiness, restlessness and frantic behavior

The symptoms get better with rest.

The symptoms get worse:

  • through touch and pressure
  • due to weather changes
  • at extreme temperatures, whether warm or cold
  • effort
  • after the meal
  • through sweating

These symptoms can either be the actual signs of the disease or accompany the disease. In any case, they point out that, from a homeopathic point of view, Mercurius solubilisaus can be the right remedy for the patient.

If the symptoms persist or get worse, always go to a doctor and have the cause clarified. This is especially true when it comes to illnesses in babies and children.

Mercurius solubilis for baby and child

Children who are supposed to benefit from Mercurius solubilis often catch infections quickly. The remedy is particularly used for regularly recurring ear infections, but diarrhea and sore throats are also often treated with Mercurius solubilis.

If your child has Mercurius solubilis, they will feel very ill. It will alternately freeze and sweat. A clear indication of Mercurius solubilis is a pillow covered in drool, as the children often have an extreme flow of saliva. If you want to give your child something to eat or drink, they will refuse almost everything, even though they are constantly unbearably hungry.

You can often smell whether Mercurius solubilis would help your child, because all secretions such as sweat, saliva or bowel movements smell very bad. Your child’s sweat will also be oily and sticky, but the child will not feel better from sweating, but will be very tired. If you feel your child for painful and swollen cervical lymph nodes, you should also think of Mercurius solubilis.

What characterizes the Mercurius solubilis type?

About the mental effect it can be said: The Mercurius solubilis type is attributed a strong introversion, he is emotionally introspective and withdrawn. He does not reveal feelings and can be very suspicious of others.

But in order to get along well with his environment, he puts up a facade of normality and behaves very conservatively. He can rushed to try to fulfill all his obligations, but often fails. Mercurius solubilis people can develop deep fears up to phobias, especially regarding their own health.

How is Mercurius solubilis used?

You use the homeopathic single remedy traditionally in the form of small globules (Mercurius globules). Another way to use it as a single remedy is homeopathic drops or tablets.

Due to the special effect of Mercurius solubilis in inflammatory diseases, you will find it in many homeopathic combination remedies. These are sold as tablets, globules or drops and are offered for a wide variety of clinical pictures.

However, it is best to use Mercurius globules for self-treatment of acute illnesses. If you have found suitable Mercurius solubilis symptoms in yourself or your child, start self-treatment with Mercurius solubilis Hahnemanni 6X or Mercurius solubilis Hahnemanni 12X. To quickly see success, repeat the administration of three Mercurius globules several times a day.

You can take Mercurius solubilis 6X every half hour in acute cases, but not more than ten times in 24 hours. If the symptoms are more pronounced, if the patient is particularly suffering or if the symptoms have existed for a long time, it is best to use Mercurius solubilis D12. However, you should not repeat this potency more than six times a day.

The higher potencies Mercurius solubilis Hahnemanni C30 or D30 are used to treat serious illnesses or acute outbreaks of chronic illnesses. In general, these potencies are prescribed by homeopaths and are not taken independently.

High potencies such as Mercurius solubilis C200 or C1000 are reserved for classic homeopathic therapy and are not suitable for independent treatment at home. They are prescribed by trained homeopaths after a detailed medical history for chronic diseases and mental changes. After ingestion, the development of treatment with Mercurius solubilis must be closely monitored.

Homeopathic medicines have no side effects, but the intake of Mercurius solubilis must be stopped if initial aggravations occur. With self-medication, the symptoms should improve quickly.
