Chief action is centered upon the nervous system and respiratory organs. Debility is very marked when Stannum is the remedy, especially the debility of chronic bronchial and pulmonary conditions, characterized by profuse muco-purulent discharges upon tuberculosis basis. Talking causes a very weak feeling in the throat and chest. Pains that come and go gradually, call unmistakably for Stannum. Paralytic weakness; spasms; paralysis.

Mind.--Sad, anxious. Discouraged. Dread of seeing people.

Head.--Aching in temples and forehead. Obstinate acute coryza and influenza with cough. Pain worse motion; gradually increasing and decreasing as if constricted by a band; forehead feels pressed inwards. Jarring of walking resounds painfully in head. Drawing pains in malar bones and orbits. Ulceration of ringhole in lobe of ear.

Throat.--Much adhesive mucus, difficult to detach; efforts to detach cause nausea. Throat dry and stings.

Stomach.--Hunger. Smell of cooking causes vomiting. Bitter taste. Pain better pressure, but sore to touch. Sensation of emptiness in stomach.

Abdomen.--Cramp-like colic around navel, with a feeling of emptiness. Colic relieved by hard pressure.

Female.--Bearing-down sensation. Prolapsus, with weak, sinking feeling in stomach (Sep). Menses early and profuse. Pain in vagina, upward and back to spine. Leucorrhœa, with great debility.

Respiratory.--Hoarse; mucus expelled by forcible cough. Violent, dry cough in evening until midnight. Cough excited by laughing, singing, talking; worse lying on right side. During day, with copious green, sweetish, expectoration. Chest feels sore. Chest feels weak; can hardly talk. Influenzal cough from noon to midnight with scanty expectoration. Respiration short, oppressive; stitches in left side when breathing and lying on same side. Phthisis mucosa. Hectic fever.

Sleep.--Sleeps with one leg drawn up, the other stretched out.

Extremities.--Paralytic weakness; drops things. Ankles swollen. Limbs suddenly give out when attempting to sit down. Dizziness and weakness when descending. Spasmodic twitching of muscles of forearm and hand. Fingers jerk when holding pen. Neuritis. Typewriters' paralysis.

Fever.--Heat in evening; exhausting night-sweats, especially towards morning. Hectic. Perspiration, principally on forehead and nape of neck; debilitating; smelling musty, or offensive.

Modalities.--Worse, using voice (i.e, laughing, talking, singing), lying on right side, warm drinks. Better, coughing or expectorating, hard pressure.

Relationship.--Complementary: Puls.

Compare: Stann iod. 3x (Valuable in chronic chest diseases characterized by plastic tissue changes). Persistent inclination to cough, excited by tickling dry spot in the throat, apparently at root of tongue. Dryness of throat. Trachial and bronchial irritation of smokers. Pulmonary symptoms; cough, loud, hollow, ending with expectoration (Phellandrium). State of purulent infiltration. Advanced phthisis sometimes when Stann jod has not taken effect, an additional dose of Iodine in milk caused the drug to have its usual beneficial effect (Stonham). Compare: Caust; Calc; Sil; Tuberc; Bacil; Helon. Myrtus chekan (chronic bronchitis, cough of phthisis, emphysema, with gastric catarrhal complications and thick, yellow difficult sputum. Old persons with weakened power of expectoration).

Dose.--Third to thirtieth potency.


STANNUM ME Constituion/Persoanlity By: girilal

Stannum is homoeopathic potentized tin. This metal is associated with Jupiter, the planet of faith, trust and lust for life. Beautiful orange colored Jupiter is the biggest planet of the solar system; in astrology Jupiter is connected with growth, getting bigger, abundance, wellfare and wellbeing, natural healing, recovery, regeneration, positivity, aims and ideals, beliefs, teaching and philosophying (spreading your beliefs in the world) and traveling (extending your points of view). Jupitarian body-parts are the liver, our chemical laboratory, and the tongue, as distinguisher through taste of what our body needs or not, and the enzymes as catalysors of biological processes. All these things support the physical regeneration. Interestingly eating from tin plates and drinking from tin vessels has proven to stimulate the assimilation of food. And the tins in which food is preserved are tinned inside to ensure the preservation of the good taste.

In homoeopathy we use Stannum in cases of severe exhaustion and grave weakness. This is mostly a remedy in chronic cases of serious disease, in which people have lost their physical reserves. There is no bodily strength left for recovery. And also emotionally seen they 'have lost it': they are very sad and have given up all hope for recovery. They feel like crying but often don't do it, because crying leads to exhaustion, as well as any other form of exertion.

An important symptom is that these people are almost too weak to speak! Speaking has to do with spreading around your beliefs, a Jupitarian area of life. Often this aversion to speak is related to a feeling of great weakness in the chest area. Every morning the chest is filled with slime and every exertion leads to exhausting coughs with a tendency to throw up yellowish-green sputum with a sweetish taste. Stannum suits short-breathed people who let themselves fall into a chair. But it can also help persons with a general feeling of physical weakness, together with the idea of not being able to ever recover.

Stannum pains arise and disappear very slowly; another sign of weakness. These can be neurological pains who are most often caused by cold, for instance nervous head-aches with the sense of a tight band around the head, and especially situated around the left eye. People who need this remedy have more difficulty with descending the stairs than with ascending the stairs!

Stannum complaints aggravate by every form of exertion, by lying on the right side (the liver-side!), warm drinks and touch. Lying on something hard amazingly ameliorates, as well as hanging with the chest over a table (what puts hard pressure on the chest).

Anyone who needs Stannum I would also recommend to eat and drink from tin tableware.
