Antimonium tartaricum (tartar emetic)
Ant. tart. has a great action on the respiratory system since it corresponds to a great rattling of mucus in the chest, difficult to bring up. More and more children in this country are little "mucus producers." (for an explanation of why asthma and excessive mucus production in children have become so widespread in this generation, see my book Human Condition: Critical) . The child has difficulties breathing because of the abundance of thick, white mucus in the chest which can be heard from a distance ( difficult, noisy breathing with shortness of breath).

Ant. tart. is also one of the top remedies for whooping cough and chickenpox.
