Aurum MetallicumAurum Metallicum, known as Metallic Gold, exhibits a profound impact on the body, targeting the blood, glands, and bones. Its effects often mirror those of mercury and syphilis infections, leading to deteriorations in bodily fluids and tissue alterations. This remedy holds significance in conditions marked by mental depression akin to syphilis sufferers, with feelings of hopelessness, despondency, and suicidal tendencies. It particularly addresses bone issues like exostosis and caries, swollen glands in scrofulous individuals, palpitations, congestions, and ascites alongside heart concerns. Aurum is frequently indicated in secondary syphilis and mercury-induced effects. Its historical use as an anti-venereal and anti-scrofulous agent has been revitalized by homeopathy, especially beneficial in complex cases where syphilis overlays a scrofulous constitution, leading to profound morbidity. Symptoms include ennui, ozena, sexual hyperesthesia, arteriosclerosis, high blood pressure, and pining boys with low spirits and weak memory.

Aurum induces feelings of self-condemnation and worthlessness, deep despondency, suicidal thoughts, and a fear of death. It promotes a peevish and vehement attitude towards contradiction, along with mental derangements, constant questioning, and oversensitivity to noise and excitement.

Symptoms include violent head pain worsened at night, roaring sensations, vertigo, tearing brain pains extending to the forehead, congestion, and boils on the scalp.

Extreme photophobia, soreness around the eyes, diplopia, tense feeling (glaucoma), seeing fiery objects, and violent bone pain around the eyes.

Aurum affects the ears with caries of ossicles and mastoid, fetid otorrhea post-scarlatina, chronic nerve deafness, and labyrinthine disease from syphilis.

Ulceration, swelling, obstruction, inflammation, and putrid discharge characterize nasal symptoms, along with boring night pains and sensitivity to smells.

Tearing pain in the zygoma, inflamed facial bones, halitosis, and ulceration of gums are notable facial manifestations.

Symptoms include stitching pain on swallowing and glandular pain.

Increased appetite and thirst, qualmishness, epigastric swelling, and burning with hot eructations are typical stomach symptoms.

Painful right hypochondrium, incarcerated flatus, and inguinal gland swelling and suppuration may occur.

Constipation, knotty stools, nocturnal diarrhea, and burning in the rectum are rectal manifestations.

Turbid urine, thick sediment, and painful retention are urinary symptoms.

Testicular pain and swelling, chronic induration, violent erections, and testicular atrophy are male symptoms.

Vaginal sensitiveness, enlarged and prolapsed uterus, and sterility are notable female symptoms.

Night dyspnea, deep breathing, and sternum stitches are respiratory issues.

Heart symptoms include palpitations, sensation of heart stoppage followed by a rebound, sinking in the epigastrium, rapid and irregular pulse, hypertrophy, and high blood pressure.

Bone symptoms include destruction, nocturnal bone pains, exostosis, cranial, nasal, and palatine caries, soreness worsened at night, and better in open air.

Blood rushes to lower limbs, dropsy, orgasmic feeling in veins, paralytic joint pains, and weak knees are common.

Sleeplessness, sobbing in sleep, and frightful dreams may occur.

Symptoms worsen in cold weather and cold exposure, often manifesting in winter and from sunset to sunrise.

Belladonna, Chininum, Cuprum, Mercurius are potential antidotes.

Aurum is administered in potencies ranging from third to thirtieth, with higher potencies preferred for high blood pressure.Aurum Metallicum

selection of the potency

  1. Individualization:

    • Homeopathy is based on the principle of treating the individual, not just the disease. The unique symptoms and characteristics of the person are crucial in determining the most suitable potency.
  2. Intensity of Symptoms:

    • The intensity of the symptoms guides the choice of potency. If the symptoms are intense and acute, a lower potency (e.g., 6C, 30C) might be considered. For chronic conditions with less intensity, higher potencies (e.g., 200C, 1M) may be appropriate.
  3. Sensitivity of the Patient:

    • Some individuals are more sensitive to homeopathic remedies, while others may require higher potencies. The practitioner considers the patient’s sensitivity when selecting the potency.
  4. Acute vs. Chronic Conditions:

    • Lower potencies are often used for acute conditions, while higher potencies may be considered for chronic or long-standing issues.
  5. Previous Response to Potencies:

    • The patient’s response to previous homeopathic treatments helps guide the choice of potency. If a particular potency has been effective in the past, it may be repeated or adjusted as needed.
  6. Vital Force and Susceptibility:

    • Homeopathy views illness as a disturbance in the vital force. The practitioner assesses the patient’s overall vitality and susceptibility to determine the appropriate potency.
  7. Aggravation or Amelioration:

    • The direction of the symptom response (aggravation or amelioration) after taking a remedy can influence the choice of potency.
  8. Miasmatic Considerations:

    • In classical homeopathy, the concept of miasms (inherited disease tendencies) is considered. The practitioner take this into account when selecting the potency.
  9. Practitioner Experience:

    • The experience and preference of the homeopathic practitioner play a role. Some practitioners may have success with certain potencies based on their clinical experience.


  • Do not exceed the recommended dose by physician
  • Keep out of the reach of children
  • Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight
  • Maintain half an hour gap between food/drink/any other medicines and homoeopathic medicine
  • Avoid any strong smell in the mouth while taking medicine e.g. camphor, garlic, onion, coffee, hing
