Formica Anhang

 

[Alta Vogel]

Formica rufa (Red Ant) Formica rufa, again, most probably is classified under the tubercular miasm:

- Ideas abundant, clearness ofMIND but their fatigue can lead to mental passivity, confusion, and aversion to mental work

“Remarkable and unexpected activity of theMIND during the day, with absence of the usual dulness and sleepiness (second day)” (Allen, 1879).

“Very active during the day” (Allen, 1879).

Mind: - MEMORY, general, active - forgetful (Murphy, 1993).

- Tend to be feverish, sweating a lot

“Aching of the bones, with a feverish state of the system, with fullness and dullness of the head” (Allen, 1879).

“Feverish heat all over the body, most in the scalp” (Hahnemann Monthly, 1873).

Desires activity (Schroyens, 2001).

“He wants to be unique and not subject to Divine intention. He rejects allowing his freedom of decision to be subject to Providence” (Neesgaard).

“Same happy state of mind and body, but easily depressed and by slight causes this happy state was changed for a short time to despondency; sudden, but momentary spells of unhappiness;

everything looks dark (mentally)” (Allen, 1879).

“An uneasy painful sensation in the hips and thighs, with a desire to change often their position whilst sitting” (Allen, 1879).

“Bruised sensation; in left hip-joints, interfering with walking; in hips at night in bed, causing him to change from side to side” (Allen, 1879).

“These pains may be more truly described as darting rather than wandering; there is more rapid change than we think of in wandering” (Roberts, 1960).

MOOD - changeable (Schroyens, 2001).

ACTIVITY - desires activity (Schroyens, 2001). 
„An uneasy painful sensation in the hips and thighs, with a desire to change often their position whilst sitting“ (Allen, 1879).

MEMORY, general, active forgetful (Murphy, 1993). 

“While eating and chewing her food (closing the jaws), she had a severe pain in the l. side of the neck ext. back of the head and particularly behind the ear” (Hahnemann monthly, 1873).

Rectum: CONSTRICTION - Internal - spasm of sphincter of orifices (Schroyens, 2001).

Abdomen: „Nausea and vomiting, with oppression“ (Allen, 1879). 

„Burning pain in stomach, with oppression and weight, pain in epigastrium at 22 h., ext. from l. to r., then shifting to vertex, followed by creeping down back; as if something had lodged

at cardiac end at 18 h.” (Allen, 1879).

ASTHMATIC nervous (Schroyens, 2001).

CONSTRICTION - cough - during (Schroyens, 2001).

Diseases - TUBERCULOSIS, lungs (Murphy, 1993).

Lungs - TUBERCULOSIS, infection (Murphy, 1993).

:Chest: CONSTRICTION - cough during (Schroyens, 2001)
- Hectic activity, uses all its effort to change, to get out 
„An anaemic woman died from the effects of an ant-vapor-bath. she had great congestion of the head and chest; violent thirst, to quench it she received nothing but whiskey; a copious sweat, 
which would not make its appearance before, broke out; oppression, nausea and vomiting followed; she begged earnestly to be removed, then became unconscious, and, with rattling in the throat, 
she died in ¾ of an hour. Unusually rapid decomposition of the body took place; especially on the outer surface, which was full of large blisters filled with putrid liquor“ (Hahnemann monthly, 1873). 

Limbs: PAIN - rheumatic with perspiration (Schroyens, 2001).

 “Chorea from checked foot sweat. Clammy skin, disagreeable sweat during night, sweat without relief” (Murphy, 1993).

“There is much sweating, the lower limbs feel weak and restless” (Vermeulen, 2000:699).

- Weakness in respiratory system, leading to frequent coughs, colds and flu

Diseases - COLDS, tendency to catch (Murphy, 1993).

- Sensation of being caught, suffocated and compressed (a picture of a man being trapped in a very narrow tunnel)

PAIN - rheumatic - perspiration with (Schroyens, 2001).

„There is much sweating, the lower limbs feel weak and restless“ (Vermeulen, 2000: 699). 

“Severe pain above the right elbow, inwardly on the inner side, increasing in intensity in the direction of the upper arm” (Allen, 1879).

„While eating and chewing her food, especially when closing the jaws, she had a severe pain in the left side of the neck, which extended into the back of the head and particularly behind the ear“ (Hahnemann monthly, 1873). 

Generals: TUBERCULOSIS 8JOINTS9 (Schroyens, 2001).

The quantitative analysis of Formica revealed a high number of matches indicating the tubercular miasm, such as activity (motion), freedom, change, closed and intense:

“Pain is felt in small spots, is < from movement and when thinking about it, and > by warmth and pressure” (Vermeulen, 2000:701).

“Sudden rheumatism, mostly in joints, & restlessness; desires motion though it aggravate the pain” (Vermeulen, 2000:700).

ACTIVITY (Schroyens, 2001).

- Burnt out, going towards total destruction

“An anaemic woman died from the effects of an ant-vapor-bath. she had great congestion of the head and chest; violent thirst, to quench it she received nothing but whiskey; a copious sweat,

which would not make its appearance before, broke out; oppression, nausea and vomiting followed; she begged earnestly to be removed, then became unconscious, and, with rattling in the throat,

she died in three-quarters of an hour. Unusually rapid decomposition of the body took place; especially on the outer surface, filled with full of large blisters with putrid ichor” (Hahnemannian

monthly, 1873).

Die Rote Waldameise lebt in Sozialverbänden, die bis 80 Jahre alt werden und nahezu l Million Tiere umfassen können. Die Mehrzahl der Tiere sind ungeflügelte, 5-8 mm lange „Arbeiterinnen"

(= nicht voll entwickelte Weibchen). Ihnen obliegen Brutpflege, Nestbau und Nahrungssuche. Die Nahrung besteht aus pflanzlichen und tierischen Bestandteilen.

Ameisen orientieren sich an ihrer eigenen Duftspur. Bei Angriff wehren sich die Tiere, indem sie mit den Kiefern Wunden beißen und aus einer Giftdrüse am Hinterleib einen feinen Giftstrahl

in die Bißwunde spritzen.

In einem Ameisenhaufen gibt es außer den Arbeiterinnen noch mehrere Weibchen (Königinnen) und zur Fortpflanzungszeit auch geflügelte Männchen. Die Weibchen werfen nach der Kopulation die Flügel ab, die Männchen sterben.

In der Homöopathie verwendet: Gift der Giftdrüsen.
