Excluded

            [Jan Scholten]

School killings: the question arises: where are they coming from?

We know that the boys who do this are very lonely, feel excluded by their schoolmates, have hardly any contacts with family or friends, and often retreat in their own room. The theme of

exclusion is very strong and this points to stage 17. We can especially think of Bromine, stage 17 of the Iron series, who is the scapegoat and the outcast at school. We can also think of

Fluorine, stage 17 of the Carbon series, who feels excluded by God and by life. That feeling can even lead to psychopathic behaviour, which can be observed in these boys. Iodine, stage 17

of the Silver series, who feel excluded by society and have no opportunities to gain a good position in society, can also be a possibility, as is Chlorine, stage 17 of the Silica series, who feels

excluded by the family; these boys have hardly any contact with their family.

Frightened

            [Rajan Sankaran]

With the Solonaceae family the universal feeling in common is of being frightened, terrified. gives the prominent sensations of the Solanaceae remedies as being,

“Sudden, violent, splitting, bursting, explosive, tearing, pulsating spasmodic, jerking, constricting, choking, shooting, sunstrokes, apoplexy, violent terror, pursued, murder, killed snakes”

Bell.: a very violent shocking feeling of being terrified.

Stram.: the person feels lost terrified and all alone.

Dulc.: state of being frightened and helpless, primarily as a consequence of becoming cold. In this way each remedy of the Solanaceae family has a distinctive kind of feeling of being

frightened and terrified.

Killing

            [Jan Scholten]

            Killing itself, which is a theme of the Gold series. The last killing is always the suicide of the killer. Suicide is the theme of Bismuth, stage 15 of the Gold series and we can think of the

            remedies Bism-br. or Bism-fl.; someone who takes many lives with him in his doom and destruction. When excluded and left on his own to die, he can drag down others with him.

When he has suffered injustice, he will inflict  injustice upon others. I also see a connection with the injustice of certain wars, like those in Iraq and Afghanistan. When your government

commits injustice, it gives the wrong example to youngsters, who wonder, "why shouldn't I do it myself." When society behaves immorally and excludes people, they, in turn, feel justified

Bell-p. = Lily representative of compositae/hurt of being excluded (mobbing?)

Compositae family for instance, the feeling shared by all the remedies of this family is of hurt - mental or physical hurt. Each remedy of the Compositae family has a different kind of hurt.

Arnica.: hurt of being injured. Fear of being struck, the weakness of the tissues, of the muscles and of the blood vessels. Because of this hurt which corresponds to being struck, there can develop in a lot of fear and anguish (at night).

Cham.: hurt with pains that are mortifying. hurt of mortification. The suppression of this leads the person into wanting to not be mortified in general, which generates a sensitivity to vexation, to Insult and to being scorned. In Chamomilla an expression of greatness, the opposite to mortified, “Delusion council, holding a” and “Indignation” (Dr Chawla). The hurt, injured feeling of compositae together with the mortification creates tremendous sensitivity to pain. It can be a state where the pains are mortifying. The sensations individual to Chamomilla are of pains that are vexing, irritating, it is a sheer anguish from pain, there is cutting pains, jerking and twitching from pains heading towards convulsions.

Cina.: something ‘shocking’ the person. more like the feeling of pains that are shocking you, like something giving you ‘shocks of pain’. We see this also in the symptom “paralysed shocks: patient will jump suddenly as though in pain” (Dr Boericke). It is a singular symptom of Cina “Mind; Jumping sudden, as if in pain” (Dr Chawla). There are many sensations in Cina of pinching pains, the child jerks from pain. They tremble twitch and can convulse from these shocking and irritating pains. Much like the Loganiaceae remedies the pains can become paralysing from the shocks.

The feeling of Eupatorium perfoliatum seems to be like the hurt of ‘aching’ pains, as if the bones were broken or dislocated. These pains have a great tendency of producing much irritability and therefore the affinity for the malarial disposition is compounded. The Compositae ‘bruised soreness as if beaten’ in Eupatorium is an aching soreness.

The common feeling universal to all the proved remedies derived from the Loganiaceae family has been worked out by Rajan Sankaran to be like being ‘shocked’ by something, like the experience of something upsetting you and shocking you. This he further describes as being ‘shattered’, and also like having been let-down or disappointed.

 

People can change miasms and still be indicated for the same remedy.

Even someone in the state of a nosode of a particular miasm may have a different miasmic disposition to that which the remedy was derived. With a nosode, the miasmic disposition is potentised into a feeling. With Medorrhinum for instance, the miasmic disposition of ‘uncertainty’ has become the feeling itself. The uncertainty is no longer related to the non-integration

of other feelings, it has become the feeling, and with it being suppressed the miasmic disposition of this non-integration could be of another miasm.

In sickness where the feeling of fright, or sudden fright is being suppressed, then the miasmic form of this suffering will frequently correspond to the acute miasm. The remedies which produce this feeling or a similar feeling of fright will be the ones most frequently indicated in the acute state. Likewise, when the feeling is of sudden loss or of helplessness, the miasmic disposition of the person may become that of typhoid and the remedies that also produce this are known to become indicated in some typhoid affections. There seems to be a connection being criticised or insulted, and the tendency of suffering coming out of this of taking the form of the cancer miasm. We cannot distinguish remedies by classifying them into any one particular miasmic form of suffering.

As the remedies of a synonymous grouping of plants will, in suffering, have many sensations in common with the others of the same grouping, every remedy also manifests sensations which are distinctive to that remedy alone as every remedy state is a feeling distinctive in itself.

In the Compositae family we can see how a different feeling of hurt in each of the remedies also manifests as distinctive sets of sensations. Arnica it seems is like the feeling of hurt involved in being injured. It is like the hurt of a blow to the bodily tissue, or an injury to the tissue. With this, more prominent to Arnica are the symptoms,

Mind: Fear struck by those coming towards him (singular symptom)

Mind: Fear fall upon him, high walls and buildings (Dr Chawla)

More pronounced in Arnica is this fear of being struck, the weakness of the tissues, of the muscles and of the blood vessels. Because of this hurt which corresponds to being struck, there can develop in the Arnica state a lot of fear and anguish, especially at night.

Cham.: feeling of the hurt of mortification. The suppression of this leads the person into wanting to not be mortified in general, which generates a sensitivity to vexation, to insult and to being scorned. We also see in Cham. an expression of greatness, the opposite to mortified, “Delusion council, holding a” and “Indignation” (Dr Chawla).

The hurt, injured feeling of compositae together with the mortification creates in Chamomilla tremendous sensitivity to pain. It can be a state where the pains are mortifying. The sensations individual to Cham. pains that are vexing, irritating, it is a sheer anguish from pain, there is cutting pains, jerking and twitching from pains heading towards convulsions.

The hurt of Cina maritima is more like the feeling of pains that are shocking you, like something giving you ‘shocks of pain’. We see this also in the symptom “paralysed shocks: patient will jump suddenly as though in pain” (Dr Boericke). It is a singular symptom of Cina “Mind; Jumping sudden, as if in pain” (Dr Chawla). There are many sensations in Cina of pinching pains,

the child jerks from pain. They tremble twitch and can convulse from these shocking and irritating pains. Much like the Loganiaceae remedies the pains can become paralysing from the shocks.

The feeling of Eupatorium perfoliatum seems to be like the hurt of ‘aching’ pains, as if the bones were broken or dislocated. These pains have a great tendency of producing much irritability and therefore the affinity for the malarial disposition is compounded. The Compositae ‘bruised soreness as if beaten’ in Eupatorium is an aching soreness. Dr Nash distinguishes Eupatorium “The bruised feeling of Eupatorium is accompanied with a deep hard aching, as if in the bones” (Leaders). Like the other Compositae remedies, and emphasized here, is the symptom of being sad from hurt.

Bel-p.: seems to me to be like the Lily representative of the Compositae family. The feeling of Bel-p. like of the hurt of being excluded. We see the impression of being friendless and disconnected, together with the friendliness, the desire for company and the friendly loquacity. Bel-p. has the swelling and stasis of the Liliflorae remedies. It is used in injuries where from swelling and inflammatory swelling surrounding tissue is pressed upon and squeezed, a stasis takes place from impeded circulation. Bel-p. is used in an inflammatory reaction where swelling cuts off circulation to tissue resulting in coldness and stiffness. Miranda Castro writes about the helpfulness of Bellis in pregnancy, “Groin pains Sudden. In Pregnancy. Legs weak. Pain, caused by a trapped nerve during the last two months of pregnancy, especially after the baby’s head engages, comes on suddenly while walking and may last only a few minutes. Groin pains are relatively common and can be severe enough to make walking impossible until after they have passed. Bellis perennis will help them pass quickly and prevent recurrence” (Homoeopathy for Mother and Baby).

Bel-p. also used for the effects and continued effects of having become suddenly cold when overheated. Here, the sudden cold causes a very rapid flow of blood and ‘swelling’ of the blood vessels, just like what happens in ice-cream headaches. Perhaps Bellis is indicated for the effects of hurt which takes place in this. It is interesting that characteristic of both the Bellis and Carc. states is a liking of thunderstorms, and Dr Sankaran places Bellis perennis in the cancer miasm.

The common feeling to the proved remedies derived from the Loganiaceae family has been worked out by to be like being ‘shocked’ by something, like the experience of something upsetting

you and shocking you. This he further describes as being ‘shattered’, and also like having been let-down or disappointed. Each of the remedies of Loganiaceae has a distinctive form of this.

Gels.: a feeling of being shocked with tremendous fear.

Ign.: state of being shocked and mortified, hence the symptoms of mortification recorded with Ignatia. It is this mortification which gives the Ignatia state a lot in common with Puls. and Cimic.

Nux-v.: feeling of being shocked and irritated. This is expressed “On seeing some irritating object she has a shock through the legs and through the whole body; she is almost insensible for an hour”.

When someone in Nux-v. gets angry with others and expresses their irritability, it can seem like they are trying to teach others not to do things around them that are shocking for them.

Spig.: produces helplessness. An important sentence of Spigelia reads “Painful sensitiveness to touch of the whole body: at the slightest knock on any part there occurs pain and as it were a shivering

about the part; even when treading there occurs a disagreeable shock in the body” (Materia Medica Pura). State of suppressed shock and helplessness.

Destruktivität

Das Konzept der Destruktivität ist bei den Kakteengewächsen bedeutsam, wenn wir stark dekompensierte Fälle behandeln. Es ist von größter Wichtigkeit zu verstehen, dass die Idee der Destruktivität aus zwei verschiedenen Aspekten besteht. Es gibt einerseits eine allgemeine, physiologische Art von Destruktivität, die man in jeder Person, in jedem Arzneimittel und in jeder Familie von homöopathischen Mitteln sehen kann. Jedes Mittel hat eine destruktive Phase und auch das Leben hat notwendigerweise negative Abschnitte. Der andere Aspekt ist die selbstzerstörerische

Einstellung als essenzielle Komponente der Familie der Kakteengewächse, aber selbst ein Mittel wie Pulsatilla kann einmal einen zerstörerischen Aspekt zeigen.

Bei Mitteln wie Millefolium und Arnika wird die Destruktivität auf der Ebene des Umgangs mit dem eigenen Körper sichtbar. Diese Menschen haben ein starkes Ego, sie wollen ihre Stärke zeigen und Extremsportarten ausüben. Ihre heroische Einstellung kann wegen der Risiken, die sie eingehen, als destruktiv angesehen werden. Aber Sie werden in den Arnika-ähnlichen Mitteln keine Destruktivität auf der rein physischen Ebene sehen, also weder zerstörerische Pathologien wie Krebs oder Malabsorptionsstörungen, bei denen Leben zerstört bzw. nicht aufgebaut wird.

Die Halogene wiederum können auf der Beziehungsebene als zerstörerisch angesehen werden; sie sind körperlich gesund, führen aber aufgrund ihrer zwischen-menschlichen Beziehungen

 ein erbärmliches Leben.

Die Destruktivität als wesentliche Komponente der Kakteengewächse kann auf allen menschlichen Ebenen wahrgenommen werden: auf der physischen Ebene, auf der Ebene des Umgangs mit dem eigenen Körper, auf der Ebene der Emotionen und auch auf der Beziehungsebene. Die meiste Zeit ihres Lebens zeigen Menschen, die ein Kakteenmittel benötigen, ein extrem destruktives Bild in ihren zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen. Schritt für Schritt entwickeln sie auch im Bezug auf ihren Körper ein destruktives Verhalten. Die Ironie der Kakteengewächse ist, dass sie am Ende ihres Lebens, wenn sie sich mit einer tödlichen Krankheit konfrontiert sehen, ruhig und weise werden. Es ist, als fänden sie ihre Identität, wenn sie krank werden. Für sie ist es schwieriger zu leben als zu sterben.

ABSTRACT

This double-blind placebo-controlled study investigated the relative efficacy of Homoeopathic similimum treatment as compared to psychological counselling (Cognitive therapy combined with Behavioural therapy), in the management of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).

Anxiety is an unpleasant emotional state that has less than a clear source. It is often accompanied by physiological and behavioural changes similar to those caused by fear, or a response to stress, such as the break up of an important relationship or exposure to a life threatening disaster (Berkow, 1997: 395).

GAD is excessive anxiety and worry (apprehensive expectation), occurring more days than not for a period of at least 6 months, in response to a number of events or activities such as work or social performance (DSM- IV, 1994: 433).

This clinical trial consisted of 3 groups; Group 1 (Homoeopathic simillimum treatment only); Group 2 (Psychological Counselling and placebo powders) and Group 3 (Placebo powders only).

Convenience sampling was utilized, whereby 41 participants were selected for the study on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria according to the DSM-IV (1994)

diagnostic criteria for 300.02.

A process of randomization was used to allocate patients to the three groups. A total of 34 participants completed the study.

In the Simillimum group 11 participants completed the 4 - week trial, which included 3 homoeopathic consultations (and 6 active treatment powders). In the Psychological Counselling group 10 participants completed the 4-week trial, which included 3 homoeopathic consultations (and 6 inactive powders) and 3 consultations of psychological counselling (Cognitive therapy and Behavioural therapy). In the Placebo group 13 participants completed the 4 week trial, which included 3 homoeopathic consultations (and 6 inactive powders).

In depth interviews were conducted with each of the participants at each consultation and full physical examination to exclude other disease conditions.

At the beginning of each consultation the participants were required to complete the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (Appendix F), the Beck Anxiety Inventory (Appendix G), and the Patient Perception Questionnaire

The groups were then compared to each other to determine if any group responded more favourably, thus indicating a more effective corresponding intervention i.e. Simillimum, Psychological Counselling or Placebo in treatment of GAD.

Data was analyzed using SPSS Version 13.1. Quantitative analyses were conducted using non-parametric methods due to the small sample size. Intra-group comparisons were made using the Wilcoxon Signed rank test.

Inter-group comparisons were made using Kruskal Wallis Test.

Results: Intra-group results for the comparison of baseline and final consultation were as follows:

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by HAM-A (p= 0.068) i.e. no significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by HAM-A (p=0.008) i.e. a significant difference.

Placebo as measured by HAM-A (p=0.003) i.e. a significant difference.

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by BAI (p=0.153) i.e. no significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by BAI (p=0.005) i.e. a significant difference.

Placebo as measured by BAI (p=0.002) i.e. a significant difference.

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by PQ1Total (p=0.033) i.e. a significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by PQ1 Total (p=0.008) i.e. a significant difference.

Placebo as measured by PQ1 Total (p=0.002) i.e. a significant difference.

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by PQ2 (p=0.017) i.e. a significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by PQ2 (p=0.082) i.e. no significant difference.

Placebo as measured by PQ2 (p=0.003) i.e. a significant difference.

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by PQ3 (p=0.026) i.e. a significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by PQ3 (p=0.042) i.e. a significant difference.

Placebo as measured by PQ3 (p=0.003) i.e. a significant difference.

Homoeopathic Simillimum as measured by PQ4 (p=0.121) i.e. no significant difference.

Psychological Counselling as measured by PQ4 (p=0.012) i.e. a significant difference.

Placebo as measured by PQ4 (p=0.256) i.e. no significant difference.

Inter-group results were analyzed per consultation. None of the results were less than or equal to (p=0.05) therefore, none were significant.

The results of this study lead to the conclusion that homoeopathic simillimum treatment is no more effective than psychological counselling (CT and BT) or placebo in the management of GAD.

Begegnungen mit Menschen, die viel reden

Der erste Teil des Buches wird sich mit folgenden Aspekten extrovertierter Menschen in der homöopathischen Praxis beschäftigen :

Wie werden Mittel differenziert ?

Extrovertierte Konstitutionen erkennen

Wann können wir mit Sicherheit annehmen, dass ein Patient extrovertiert ist ? Ein wahrer Homöopath muss über ein richtiges Verständnis  der  natürlichen  Persönlichkeitsmerkmale  verfügen  und

sie auch dementsprechend auslegen. Es ist augenfällig geworden, dass viele Behandler eine falsche Auffassung von bestimmten Rubriken haben. Nicht jeder, der frei und mit Enthusiasmus spricht,

muss notwendigerweise als extrovertiert gelten, selbst wenn er behauptet, dies zu sein. Sehr oft hören wir die Leute sagen : « Oh ja! Ich liebe es wirklich, mich zu unterhalten, ich habe viele Freunde,

mein Freundeskreis ist sehr groß und ich bin umgeben von vielen Menschen.» Das könnte stimmen, aber ist dieser Mensch derjenige, der jeweils am meisten redet ? Oder ist er in der Gruppe oder in

Begegnungen mit Menschen, die viel reden Extrovertierte Konstitutionen erkennen

Wann können wir mit Sicherheit annehmen, dass ein Patient extrovertiert ist? Ein wahrer Homöopath muss über ein richtiges Verständnis  der  natürlichen  Persönlichkeitsmerkmale  verfügen  und

sie auch dementsprechend auslegen. Es ist augenfällig geworden, dass viele Behandler eine falsche Auffassung von bestimmten Rubriken haben. Nicht jeder, der frei und mit Enthusiasmus spricht,

muss notwendigerweise als extrovertiert gelten, selbst wenn er behauptet, dies zu sein. Sehr oft hören wir die Leute sagen: « Oh ja! Ich liebe es wirklich, mich zu unterhalten, ich habe viele Freunde,

mein Freundeskreis ist sehr groß und ich bin umgeben von vielen Menschen.» Das könnte stimmen, aber ist dieser Mensch derjenige, der jeweils am meisten redet? Oder ist er in der Gruppe oder in anderen Zusammenhängen ein Zuhörer? Wurde er in die Gruppe einbezogen, weil er ruhig, empfänglich und nicht aggressiv, also für die Gruppe nicht gefährlich ist?  Redet er nur mit Vertrauten?

Wenn die Antwort auf die Frage «Wie viele enge Freunde haben Sie?» lautet: «Naja, ich habe ein oder zwei sehr enge Freunde.» dürfte das eine extrovertierte Persönlichkeit ausschließen und unsere Auffassung vom Patienten wird sich in Richtung der introvertierten  Konstitutionen  neigen.  Was  sollten  also   sichere  Kriterien sein, um jemanden als extrovertiert einordnen zu können?

Der  Patient  eröffnet  bzw.  beginnt  das  Gespräch  selbst. – Dies  sollte nicht nur einmal vorkommen. Wenn ein Mensch es aber liebt, bei Unterhaltungen jedes Mal den ersten Schritt zu machen, freundlich ist, und sich auch in unserer Praxis so verhält, dann kann er mit Sicherheit als extrovertiert bezeichnet werden: «Namaste  Doktor  Sahib, ich bin Anthony Gonzales, sie kennen den Namen, aber ich war das nicht in diesem Film. Nun ja, ich hab viel von ihnen gehört und hier bin ich nun. Ich leide seit langem an Bluthochdruck. Einige Ärzte sagen, er wäre permanent und ich müsse damit leben, aber ich bin sicher, dass sie mir helfen können. Ich habe seit acht oder zehn Monaten versucht, einen Termin bei ihnen zu bekommen, aber ich hatte kein Glück. Nun bin ich endlich hier.

Wenn sie mir irgendeine Frage stellen wollen, fragen sie ruhig. Natürlich habe ich meine Fallgeschichte und alles ihrer Assistentin hier berichtet und ich muss sagen, sie ist wirklich gut, nicht nur was das Aussehen angeht, hahaha, sondern auch bei ihrer Arbeit. Sie hat mir auf den Zahn gefühlt, bis in meine Kindheit hinein, und natürlich habe ich ihr alles erzählt, einschließlich meiner geheimsten Geheimnisse, die nicht einmal meine Frau kennt.

Also ich hoffe, sie werden meiner Frau nichts erzählen, sonst lässt sie sich von mir scheiden. Haha! Ich hab’ nur gescherzt. Warum sollte  ein  so  offener und extrovertierter Mensch wie ich  jemals

Bluthochdruck bekommen ? Meine Frau ist in der Tat so gut und lieb, dass sie im Gegenteil durch mich Bluthochdruck bekommen müsste...» Und der Mann redet weiter. Uns aber ist plötzlich aufgegangen,  dass  der  Arzt nicht  eine  einzige  Frage gestellt,  sondern dieser Mensch sich vorgestellt hat und zur Fallgeschichte oder zumindest deren Einleitung übergegangen ist, ohne auch nur irgendetwas gefragt worden zu sein. Das ist klassische Extroversion. Diese Kriterien können uns Extroversion anzeigen.

Einführung

Wenn ein Mensch, der nicht viel spricht, zu einem Homöopathen kommt und ihm gegenüber sitzt, so ergeben sich zahlreiche Probleme. Ein Homöopath braucht eine detaillierte Anamnese und

wenn ein Patient nicht redet, dann ist er so gut wie erledigt.

Viele junge Ärzte, die in der ambulanten Lehrpraxis als Assistenten  Fälle  aufnehmen,  kommen  mit  einem  verdrießlichen  Gesicht zu ihrem Lehrer und sagen : « Ich konnte nicht das Geringste

von diesem Patienten erfahren. Er redet nicht viel. Er sagt nur das Nötigste. Dieser Patient ist nicht kooperativ. Wie sollen wir für ihn verschreiben ? » Der junge Arzt weiß nicht, dass dies ein Symptom ist, das beachtet werden muss. Man muss verstehen, dass alles, was der Patient tut oder unterlässt, genetisch gesteuert wird! Hier sprechen  die  Gene. Es ist sein genetischer Code, der ihn still sein lässt. Dieses Schweigen könnte primär, d.h. von Geburt an, oder sekundär, d.h. als ein Abwehrmechanismus nach Verletzungen in der Kindheit bestehen. Ein Patient, der in der Kindheit vergnügt und lebhaft war, kann sich aufgrund bestimmter Umstände, wie strenger elterlicher Erziehung oder anderen Erfahrungen in einer schlimmen Kindheit, eine sykotische Abwehr aneignen.

In unserem Fall bewirkt die Hyposykose, dass der Mensch ‹in Deckung geht› und still und unkommunikativ wird. Noch einmal: Ein Patient kann entweder zu reserviert sein und wenig reden, das heißt er ist introvertiert, oder  er  kann  redselig  und  ausdrucksstark  sein,  das heißt, er ist extrovertiert.

Man sollte immer daran denken, dass die durch einen Homöopathen  zu  berücksichtigenden  Symptome sehr  stark  und  deutlich sein müssen und die betreffende Person genau beschreiben sollten.

Hyposykose

Mürrisch Schüchtern

Hochmütig

Traurig

Sachlich

Sie sollten nicht vage und konfus sein. Wenn andererseits eine bestimmte Eigenschaft strittig ist, so sollte sie nicht berücksichtigt werden. Wenn sie das Verhalten der Person nicht durchgehend in

verschiedenen  Lebenssituationen  bestimmt,  so  sollte  sie keinesfalls für die Verschreibung herangezogen werden.

Introvertierte erkennen

Während der Befragung müssen wir introvertierten Patienten gut zureden, sie drängen und immer wieder nachfragen, und trotzdem erhalten wir nicht genügend Informationen. Solche introvertierte

Konstitutionen finden sich unter jenen Patienten:

die nicht aus freien Stücken reden.

die von sich aus keine Informationen preisgeben.

die nicht einmal dann ein freundliches Lächeln zeigen, wenn sie angeschaut werden.

die wegschauen oder jeden Augenkontakt meiden.

die gerne abseits oder in einer Ecke sitzen und dort,  ganz für sich, konzentriert ein Buch oder eine Zeitung studieren.

die kurz angebunden oder schroff nur das Nötigste antworten.

Es gibt extrovertierte Menschen, die mit einem freundlichen Lächeln eintreten und uns schon einen guten Morgen gewünscht haben, noch bevor wir selber etwas sagen können:

« Guten Morgen, wie geht es Ihnen ? Das war aber eine lange Wartezeit da draußen. Ich weiß, es ist nicht Ihre Schuld. Sie tun Ihr Bestes und ich sehe, dass Sie sehr beschäftigt sind und es ist natürlich ein Dienst an der Menschheit und kein Dienst an Menschheit und Menschlichkeit ist an einen Zeitplan gebunden...»

Während des kurzen Moments der Begrüßung hat der typische Extrovertierte den Arzt begrüßt, seine Wartezeit kommentiert, den Arzt  gepriesen,  seine  philosophischen  Fähigkeiten  gezeigt  und

schlau seine kritische Grundhaltung verschleiert. Im Gegensatz dazu würde ein introvertierter Mensch leise eintreten, besser gesagt hereinschleichen, ohne sich bemerkbar zu machen und geduldig

darauf warten, dass wir das Gespräch beginnen. Hier folgt ein Beispiel für ein solches Gespräch:

 

Introvertiert, in sich gekehrt

Einführung introvertiert

 

Arzt: Hallo, guten Morgen.

Patient: Guten Morgen.

 

Arzt: Was fehlt Ihnen ?

Patient: Es ist eigentlich nichts, nur so ein Schmerz.

 

Arzt: Schmerzen wo ?

Patient: Rückenschmerzen.

 

Arzt: In welchem Bereich Ihres Rückens ?

Patient: Irgendwo hier. (Deutet auf die Lumbalregion.)

 

Arzt: Welcher Art sind die Schmerzen ?

Patient: Schmerzhaft.

 

Arzt: Wann hat das begonnen ?

Patient: Vor drei Monaten.

 

Arzt: Wie ?

Patient: Ich hatte einen Unfall.

 

Arzt: Was für einen Unfall ?

Patient: Einen Verkehrsunfall.

 

Arzt: Wie, was ist passiert ? Befanden Sie sich in dem Auto, das den Unfall verursachte oder wurden Sie von dem Auto angefahren ?

 

In diesem Dialog können wir beobachten, dass keine Information freiwillig  herausgegeben  wird.  Alles  kommt  in  Häppchen,  stückchenweise, und das auch nur, wenn nachgebohrt und nachgefragt wird.  Solche  Menschen  sind  perfekte  Beispiele  für  sykotisch-oberflächliche Konstitutionen. Bei ihnen liegt die Information ganz tief im Innern.

Wir müssen nach ihr graben wie in einem Bergwerk.

Mit  einem extrovertierten Patienten  würde  dieselbe  Konversation folgendermaßen ablaufen:

 

Patient: Hallo Herr Doktor! Guten Morgen !

Arzt: Guten Morgen.

 

Patient: Sehen Sie, Herr Doktor, ich komme voller Hoffnung zu Ihnen. Ich habe diese blöden Rückenschmerzen, die mir seit Monaten keine Ruhe lassen.

Arzt: Ich verstehe, aber wo genau – Noch bevor der Arzt fragen kann, wo die Schmerzen sitzen oder wie alles begonnen hat, redet der Patient weiter...

Hier zeigt sich die hyposykotische Abwehr, die Menschen ‹in Deckung gehen lässt›. Sie ist der dominante Abwehrprozess bei introvertierten Menschen.

 

[Dr. Navneet Bidani]

Understanding rubrics is the first step toward a successful selection of remedy.

One must be thoroughly familiar with the stock of rubrics so far as their meaning is concerned. Here a good repertory is of great help. No matter which repertory we use, it will never, ever give

us the right remedy in a straight shot. So, we must use the repertory from the perspective of a certain philosophy and principle, and never use it simply as a mechanical tool.

Selection of the right remedy depends on many factors:

The patient's narration or expression of their symptoms; here we must know how to convert the patient’s symptoms into the language of repertory.

The physician's ability to make keen observations of symptoms.

The physician's skill in interpreting symptoms; the best interpretations come from understanding the situation of a patient. This usually must be understood in the form of a story or in a form of

an evolution. Let’s take an example.

A boy wants to become an artist. From a very young age he loves to read books related to the arts, he loves to draw and paint and is very excited on seeing related television programs. He is enthusiastic about taking part in art competitions and he loves to visit museums and art galleries. Added to this he has a very dominating father. The father says "Look, you cannot make money

by studying at a school of arts. You have to study business so you can get a good job and make lots of money." Then conflict starts in the mind of the child regarding his burning desire to be an

artist against the restrictions from his parents to pursue commercial education.

Now, how are we going to interpret these symptoms?

Never assume you have a correct interpretation of the symptom without confirmation from the patient - that is, never ever interpret from your own imagination.

In the case given above we must understand that the child wants to do something, but the dominating parents restricts him - and ultimately the child surrenders.

In this case the rubric we select, may be;

"Mind-contradictory, actions are contradictory to intentions" or it may also be "Antagonism with self" or we may also take the rubric "Ailments from domination".

Once we decide on one of these rubrics, we must confirm its accuracy with the patient. Then we take it in a case analysis.

Sometimes there are cases where it is difficult to find the exact feelings of the patient in the form of a rubric. Let's take the example of a person who is in many ways an extrovert, but he does not share his feelings with anybody. Is it correct to take the rubric "Reserved"? Or should we take "Reserved displeasure"? Because this person is primarily an extrovert, he is not well described by these choices. So the correct rubric may well be "Hides his inner feelings".

As another example, consider a person who has a strong aversion to quarrels, violence, arguments etc. Here it is not always correct to take "Quarrel, aversion to". Depending on the situation, "Desire for harmony" may be a better rubric.

It is the use of the rubrics in metaphorical way, in an expanded sense. For this we must look to the surroundings, keep our eyes and ears open during our day to day conversations with people.

One should proceed from meaning to expressions. Merely collecting expressions and finding their equivalent rubrics is of help, but to some extent only because the expression may amount to any one of several rubrics or more than one rubric. Likewise one rubric may have a variety of expressions so we must have a thorough knowledge of how to differentiate the rubrics which seem to have a somewhat similar meaning.

 

Here’s an attempt;

* Abusive, Cursing & Contemptuous:

* Abusive: One should consider this symptom in conjunction with the heading "Cursing" in order to distinguish between the two. Both concern verbal attacks on people or things. The abusive person uses rude and insulting words in order to offend others, whereas cursing is the vivid expression of surprise or annoyance. In assessing these symptoms, one must bear in mind the patient’s education & background. Here we must know how to differentiate this rubric from "Contemptuous". The contemptuous person not only belittles other people, but also feels superior to them. In his scorn there

is indifference, rejection & sometimes even loathing. The symptom is most easily recognizable in racists who despise any racial group to whom they feel superior. We can differentiate it with "Rudeness & Insolent" as well. The rude person is impolite and coarse in word and deed. Like the insolent person he has absolutely no consideration for anyone else, but the rude person adds a dash of crudeness & bad taste whereas insolence is a lack of respect. It may be detected in patients during consultation, although few will admit to it. Look for an attitude of excessive casualness and confidence, the impertinence implicit in all the movements. This person is ill-mannered and completely lacking in modesty.

 

* Fanaticism, Anarchist & Revolutionary:

A fanatical person may be readily identified by his attitude and behaviour. Within a group he will be passionately enthusiastic in support of an idea. The greater the validity of an objection, the more aggressive and dogged will be his defense of them. He would rather die than admit that he might be wrong and his adversary right. This may lead him to compound his problems to an absurd degree rather than to try to solve them. His blindness and lack of flexibility prevent him from clarifying his thoughts or from exchanging ideas. He shuts himself off from all other points of view.

Fanaticism is more often used in context with religious mania.

Anarchist: An Anarchist means one who rebels against any authority, established order or ruling power or one who uses violent means to overthrow the established order. Rejection of all forms of control and authority. In terms of intensity of obstinacy or craziness an Anarchist is more intense than a Fanatic. A fanatic can not be an anarchist, but an anarchist can be a fanatic. If intensity increases to yet another higher degree then an anarchist becomes a revolutionary.

Fanaticism: Aur-ar. Caust. Lach. Puls. Rob. Sel. Sulph. Thuj.

Anarchist: Arg-n. Caust. Kali-c. Merc.

Revolutionary: Merc.

If we have a look at the medicines mentioned, we can easily predict that how a Causticum Fanatic (grade1) converts into an Anarchist (grade 2) & a Merc Anarchist (grade 2) converts into a revolutionary (grade 3).

We can also co-relate it miasmatically:

Fanaticism -------------------------- Psora

Anarchist ---------------------------- Sycosis

Revolutionary ---------------------- Syphilitic

 

* Frivolous, Foolishness & Childish behaviour:

Frivolous means: Unworthy of serious attentions. Trivial nature of anything he comes in contact with. The frivolous person is vacuous and superficial. He is devoted to casual relationships, drunkenness, debauchery, fine cigarettes, wild parties and pornographic films. His sole ideal is the pleasure of empty distraction. He achieves nothing important or substantial. A frivolous person might narrate his complaints with laughing as if he were not very serious about it. We must know how to differentiate this rubric with foolishness and childish behaviour. Foolish or clownish behaviour in children is easily observed during the consultation. These attempts to be funny or amusing often indicate that the child has low self-esteem, or it may be a means of calling for attention. A frivolous person knows the after-effects or ill-effects of his negligence, but still he doesn’t cares about that, whereas a foolish person doesn't even know what could be the ill-effects. The symptom also occurs in patients with emotional immaturity (Puls. Ign.), exaggerated fixation on parental images, need for protection, emotional instability, egoism, jealousy, difficulty in resolving problems etc. Childish behaviour should not be confused with "Imbecility" or with "Idiocy" which involve mental disability. "Imbecility" covers a mental age of between three & seven years, and the person is one who does not appreciate anything he comes in conduct with; inappropriately silly.

 

* Fastidious, Censorious & Conscientious:

Fastidious means difficult to please or suit. Delicate to a fault. Everything has to be "just so". "Disdainful, squeamish; rejecting what is common or not very nice; suited with difficulty".

This person is excessively scrupulous and meticulous. He gives careful attention to details, (another PERFECTIONIST) and is excessively concerned with cleanliness.

Censorious is a person who see every action of others with critical eye especially for the sake of disapproving. Censorious can be for any behaviour, personality, structure, animate or inanimate things and he has no fixed standards to be met with. While on contrast Fastidious has some standards to be met with and is not pleased till the parameters set by him are fulfilled. These standards are usually for inanimate objects like fastidious for dressing, cleanliness, taste, time, order of things and he becomes satisfied when his standards are met while censorious is always criticizing others and most times capricious. He himself never knows what is right, but he would say that "I don't know what is right, but this is wrong", while fastidious would always explain you what is right and how it is to be done. This can be further verified by looking at drugs like Baryta, Lyc. Chin. Cham. Lach. Calc. Ip. Caps. Cocc-i. Hyos.; all these drugs are censorious, but not fastidious. Sub-headed "critical", fault-finding; censorious also encompasses the modern expression "judgmental". "Apt to blame or condemn; severe in making remarks on others, or on their writings or manners". He who is “Censorious” is more concerned with the actions of others as such, than is he who is "Fastidious".

Conscientious (about trifles) was equated by Kent with Scrupulous. The patient takes an undue or disproportionate amount of trouble over tasks which cannot be understood as being of more than minor significance. This may be seen in the amount of trouble taken either over the task itself or over making sure that it is completed. (cf. "Trifles seem important"). The word conscientious also describes a person who is strongly guided by a sense of right or wrong, which does things in a way he deems correct. He is honest to himself and to others and would not normally neglect his duties. He is loyal to his job; this person also lies on the verge of being a perfectionist. This is quite close to being “fastidious” and “censorious”, but may not be necessarily so. This person is thorough, assiduous, is gifted with an extremely caring nature and gives great efforts.

 

Let’s take an example:

Suppose you are late for a meeting, then the fastidious person will not tolerate or if you create disorder in a room the fastidious person will point out that you don’t do this or that. So seeing superficially he may appear censorious, finding fault, but when we go deep we’ll realize that his concerns are different. His problem is that he cannot be satisfied in respect to time, order, cleanliness or something which he consider important, as he has his own standards regarding his issues of life. It may be his behavior which may be adapted as in Carcinosin or it may be his temperament and it may or may not involve other person as fastidious is the same with himself. But censoriousness is a attitude of person to be critical, fault finding in others and other people may or may not correct in that respect. The censorious or fault finding person is systematically critical of other people and does not pardon even the slightest faults. He loves to identify shortcomings in other people and to let them know of them. It is not at all for the improvement of the latter as a critic, but it is destructive and he is ready to criticize and never praise.

Conscientious is totally different from both of them, it is not an attitude of a person but it is from inside i.e. by virtue of the person. He only listens to his or her conscious and his decision does not depend upon a condition or who is standing in front of him. It is not related with another person, it is one's own personal understanding and comes with the teaching and conditioning of a person.

So, this is just a brief idea as to how we should differentiate the rubrics and apply the exact rubric for repertorization and for finding a true similimum. We must know that there are rubics differing in shades of meaning and it may need all our intelligence, care and contemplation to fully realize these shades of meaning.
