This state can descend into a severe depression with thoughts of suicide which may be triggered by grief or disappointment in love. Aurum also a remedy for types of cardiac and vascular complaints or symptoms. Heat may surge through the veins and to the head to create a florid, reddened appearance. Symptoms improve with slow walking or in the early evening but others, such as bone pain, worsen at night – from sunset to sunrise. Music can improve symptoms, especially mental-emotional ones.
