Remedy Spotlight: Spongia tosta
Spongia is a homeopathic remedy that is made from a roasted sea sponge. It is a great remedy for croup that is accompanied by a dry, barking cough (like a saw cutting through wood or a seal barking). Mucous membranes are dry. It is helpful in breathing problems because the patient feels as if they are breathing through a sponge. This difficulty in breathing causes anxiety and they gasp for air. In the night, they wake up feeling suffocated. Cough better warm drinks, eating sweets and worse before midnight. Patient is chilly.
