Setting boundaries, quickly interpreting things as threats. Dealing with boundaries in their own way: defending themselves by challenging and pre-emptively going into attack, in order to reassure themselves that they are strong enough.
Used to talk about how he’d be walking down the corridor at the clinic, hear the screaming in the examining room, and say, “Give that child Chamomilla.” I know it sounds
a bit like Bell., but, look at your reaction to the child. The Belladonna child’s parent feels the need to act, to do something, give a medicine, find a solution, fast!
The Chamomilla child’s parent just wants her kid to shut-up! There is no sympathy, the parent is fed up!
Almost any child or baby can go into a Chamomilla state. Teething seems to set it off, ear infections…whatever the reason the child is in pain or discomfort, the response in
the Chamomilla state is to scream and shriek inconsolably and unendingly! I made a visit once to my friend Shobi’s house, her little one had some sort of virus and she brought him to me in her arms. He was not nestled contentedly on her shoulder as Puls. would be; rather, he was screaming, arching his back, bending over backwards stiffly, threatening to fall on the floor head-first–a real handful, in other words!
I said, “That’s Chamomilla!” It’s an angry crying, you feel no sympathy for the Chamomilla child, you just wish they would stop! We gave Chamomilla 30C and the baby calmed down right away. When you think of Chamomilla, think of easily-upset children, flailing about, demanding one thing and another and then throwing it down, screaming/crying, easily frustrated, demanding attention, demanding to be carried, and generally making the parents feel desperate!
Cham. wenn das Kind vollkommen ungenießbar ist und alles wonach er gerade verlangt hat, wutentbrannt wegschleudert, sobald Sie es ihm geben und er gleichzeitig unter sehr starken Schmerzen zu leiden scheint (Ohrenschmerzen oder Zahnungsbeschwerden), wissen homöopathisch vorgebildete Eltern, dass Chamomilla das homöopathische Mittel der Wahl ist. Kinder, die Chamomilla als homöopathisches Mittel brauchen, sind meist sehr willensstark und verfügen über sehr viel Energie.
Sie verlangen sich selbst einiges ab und versuchen schon früh ihre Empfindsamkeit zu verstecken. Dafür äußert sich diese Empfindlichkeit dann auf der körperlichen Ebene. Wenn sie Schmerzen haben, sind die so unerträglich, dass sie oft bis zur Erschöpfung schreien und sich nur beruhigen wenn sie getragen werden.
Child awakens as if he had awful dream
Frenzy, angry, irritable, stiff, rigid, arching its back, yelling, crying, screaming, cross, uncooperative, will NOT calm down, is inconsolable, throws down everything–every toy, every stuffed animal–
you give him even if he asked for it! And why is he doing this? Because the pain is intolerable! It could be colic, teething pain, it doesn’t matter. You can’t examine this child, he will have to be forcibly held down in the doctor’s office to put the otoscope in his ear! His cheek will be red, he will be hot with hot feet. Belladonna will have cold feet. The only thing that will stop Cham. from crying is brisk carrying! As soon as you put him down, he will start crying again. Lucky for you, all you need is a dose of Chamomilla 30C to end all of this.
