Das Lycopodium-Kind hat die Symptome: "Furcht vor neuen Bekanntschaften", "Furcht vor Männern", "Furcht vor Fremden", "Feigheit", "Schüchternheit" usw.,

deshalb bleibt es neuen Situationen und Menschen fern und hält sich immer an die ihm Vertrauten und Bekannten.

Causticum versus Lycopodium in Children

The main distinguishing feature between Causticum and Lycopodium children is hat Causticum children have a definite aversion to sweets, whereas Lycopodium children desire them.

[Dr Elizabeth Wright Hubbard/Presented by Sylvain Cazalet]

There is no better gonadal stimulant than Lyc.

Lycopodium bei Bauchschmerzen / Koliken von Babys, Kindern (und Erwachsenen)

Durch seine überaus starke Wirkung auf den Verdauungstrakt wird Lycopodium sehr häufig bei Babys und Kleinkindern mit Koliken und Bauchschmerzen eingesetzt. Gerade zu

Beginn des Lebens ist der Magen- Darmtrakt der kleinen Erdenbewohner noch nicht vollständig ausgebildet und mit Bakterien besiedelt. Dies dauert in der Regel einige Monate

bis zum 2.Lebensjahr. Daher kann es vor allem in der Zeit zu Bauchschmerzen und Koliken kommen. Lycopodium wirkt hier lindernd, wenn diese Beschwerden Nachmittags beginnen,

die Kinder schreien, sich krümmen, oder sich nach hinten verbiegen. Das Bäuchlein ist gespannt und schmerzhaft aufgetrieben. Deutliche Erleichterung bringt Luftentweichen.

Wärme tut gut, < Kälte.

[Paul Herscu]

The descriptions of the remedy Lycopodium as presented in the old materia medicas may mislead the prescriber because they tend to fit only the adult. The Lycopodium youngster may be

an entirely different experience.

Two distinct types of behavior can be observed in Lycopodium children.

1.      fear and apprehension affect every aspect of the child's life.

In the waiting room, this child sits very near his mother and watches everything from that secure vantage point since the office visit is a strange, new situation.

We see a lack of self-confidence and the presence of many overriding fears.

2.      the child is bossy to the point of being dictatorial and strives to control those close by, be they parents, siblings, or friends.

This child, in contrast, can be heard loudly voicing variations on a theme: "Bring me that toy!" "I don't want to be here!" "Take me home!"

In the second, we find an irritable nature and a great desire for power.

What this demanding child says is only part of it. It is the tone in which these commands are spoken and the attitude that it reveals that prompts one to first think of Lycopodium.

The child speaks irritably to the parent and the parent answers weakly, almost apologetically; one quickly grasps that the normal parentchild dynamic has been reversed. The child, not the adult, controls the relationship. Furthermore, it is as if all the members of the family have become the Lycopodium youngster's inferiors, they are there only to meet the little tyrant's needs and gratify his whims. From these brief initial observations, the doctor can deduce the major thematic elements that will shape the behavior of Lycopodium people throughout their lives.

While these two types may be found in different individuals as described in this chapter, they also represent a continuum that may be expressed in one person.

First I will discuss the aspects of fear, then the lack of selfconfidence, and finally the emergence of the desire for power.

Insecurity / Fear

Fear is an essential factor in the development of the Lycopodium psyche.

[Kent's Repertory] Only Bar-c. and Lyc. are found under the rubric: Fear; People, in children. Even the babies are apprehensive. Infants need to be near the mother or on a parent's lap, as they

become especially afraid when alone and when around other people (loud strangers). Fear is immediately observable in the facial expression, set off by the distrustful look in the eyes and a stare.

While most three-month-old babies smile back at a doting parent, the most pleasant expression a Lycopodium child of that age can muster is often a mild frown.

There may be clearly visible wrinkling of the forehead proportionate to the degree of apprehension the child is feeling. For example, in the office, the closer the doctor gets to the baby to pick her

up, the more numerous and deeper the creases become.

The eyes, too, stare out at the world with an expression of fear unusual for such a young person, making the observer wonder what the child is so worried about.

This illustrates the fact that one of the main ways in which fear is elicited, even in very young Lycopodium children, is as anxiety caused by the presence of strangers. Whereas most children go

through a "stranger anxiety" phase at some time within the first couple of years, Lycopodium babies develop this from birth and experience it throughout most of their childhood. It seems as if

these infants and children only like what is already known; in this case, only those people with whom they are intimately familiar.

Such a strong fear of strangers may often be conjoined with a fear of being alone that becomes evident in many circumstances.

The parents may describe it in the interview if the child does not. The child keeps track of the parents' whereabouts throughout the day, following them around the house and constantly querying

the parents: "Where are you going? When will you be back? Are you upstairs or downstairs?"


While in Natrum muriaticum this same behavior exists, it stems from a concern and fear for the parents' safety. In Lycopodium, the fear is that if the parent is not nearby, they themselves will not

be safe. They may need to be in the same room or at least next door to a parent, as with Pulsatilla.

In Pulsatilla the fear is of abandonment, whereas in Lycopodium the fear is that something "bad" will actually happen to them.

Happier Lycopodium children wish to stay in the room with a parent and will be quite content with that setup. Conversely, the irritable child wants to be alone, yet is afraid. When expressed

fully in the irritable child, this fear leads to the famous symptom and keynote in the Repertory.

Mind: aversion to company yet dreads being alone.

Fear of being alone is greatly accentuated in the dark. They often do not like to go to bed alone, wanting a parent to go along to check the area and turn on the lights. A Lycopodium baby will

begin to cry as soon as the parents turn off the lights and leave the room, just like those needing Pulsatilla.

Some fear may be allayed by keeping a light on, but many of these children continue to scream until they are allowed to sleep with their parents or siblings. This is especially true after they have watched a scary movie, listened to a ghost story, or even just viewed the six o'clock news on television.

Phosphorus, Pulsatilla, and Calcarea carbonica are also unusually sensitive to horrible stories and have fears in the dark.

Lycopodium children may wake up with a fright and go to the parents' bed, as do Phosphorus, Pulsatilla, and Stramonium.

Some children go to sleep more easily than described, but if they wake up at night for any reason, such as to urinate, they may check all the beds to make sure that the family members are each

where he or she should be and that they have not been left alone.Fear of being alone in the dark may arise at other times as well. For instance, the child will refuse to bring something up from

the basement. The thought of going into the dark underground, unprotected and alone, is unendurable. The fear of being alone, < being in the dark, is a good clue to other remedies as well, such

as Causticum, Phosphorus, Pulsatilla, and Stramonium.

In Phosphorus, one encounters many other fears the likes of which only an intensely active imagination can create; in Stramonium, this fear will be seen in a violent child.

Fear of New Things

The child may also develop a fear or aversion to new things, not due to stubbornness, as is found in Calcarea carbonica, but because the fears the new thing itself. The parent states that in new

places and situations (as in the interview) and in crowds, the child will be fearful and timid at first. Once the situation is better understood by the child, he becomes more comfortable and is

able to interact with others more normally. In brief, anything new will be regarded with suspicion until it can be understood. In contrast, a Calcarea carbonica child 's dislike of new things

is due to slow assimilation and comprehension. Mothers say that the Calcarea carbonica children cannot be budged to start activities in a new situation because their stubbornness prevents it.

However, when they finally understand what is going on, they join in and often cannot be stopped! The Calcarea carbonica child is obstinate and unyielding, while the Lycopodium child is

fearful and anxious. Even though similar behavior is noted in their dislike of new things, the root causes are radically different for each of these remedy types.

Fear of new situations may be observed in the clinic. If there are several chairs from which to pick, the first-time Lycopodium patient will often pick the chair farthest from the doctor and

will have to be coaxed to sit any closer. The child, squirming in her seat, will neither talk to nor establish any eye contact with the doctor. Others whisper, mumble, or look at the parent for

cues or for whole answers. Some giggle nervously before or after every answer. Some will be very adultlike and answer properly (if stiffly, due to nervousness), looking at the mother only

when they do not know the answer. Toddlers may sit on their mothers' laps frowning at the doctor and screaming whenever the doctor or the mother asks a question.

During the follow-up interview some weeks later, the child knows the doctor and what to expect and so is much friendlier and acts more comfortable all around. At this point the practitioner

may be misled to think that the remedy given has acted, based on the changes observed in the office, but these changes will occur even if the wrong remedy was prescribed simply because

the situation is no longer new and therefore not threatening. A good way to determine accurately whether or not it was the remedy that caused a change in the child is to ask the parent how

the child behaved in other new situations during the interim or in situations that previously made the child anxious. Often the fear of new things leads to a predictable lack of initiative.

The parents state that the Lycopodium child is "not a spur-of-the-moment type of person." For example, every time the family goes out for supper the child may order the same meal.

Parental attempts to convince the child to choose something else are usually in vain. If forced to pick a new food, and if the food is liked (as it often turns out to be), the new item will be

added to the menu of acceptable choices.

I am reminded of eight-year-old Roger, who was brought for treatment of his frequent colds. Along with the rest of the symptoms was a strong fear of new things. He would invariably

cry and hide when presented with new tasks or new choices in clothes, foods, or activities. If he had not shown all the other fears and physical general characteristics of Lycopodium

such as a fear of the dark and of being alone, right-sided sore throats, and stomachaches, I would have given the remedy Baryta carbonica, so marked was this behavior of hiding from new


Fear of Public Failure

If one perceives why and how the child exhibits these fears, the case becomes greatly simplified. The fear of new situations in Lycopodium is intimately bound to a prominent fear of failure.

This pattern grows more and more pronounced as such children mature into adulthood. The exact description of what I have observed is that they fear the decision-making process and the

repercussions of any decisions made.

For the most part, the fear of failure is felt only before an upcoming event, not during it. They anticipate that something will go wrong, something bad will happen, or that they will be

ridiculed in some way. However, once they begin the activity, the fear diminishes and they accomplish the task with ease. The type and degree of apprehension is second only to that found

in those responding to the remedy Silicea.

These children also experience fear before an activity or event that disappears as soon as the event begins and they find that they perform well.

Argentum nitricum, Gelsemium sempervirens, and Phosphorus may likewise greatly fear upcoming events.

It should be noted that this fear is not merely a fear of failure; rather, it is a fear of failing in public. What the child may tell the doctor is that she does not mind trying new things if she

is alone, but does not wish to do them in front of others (peers).

This sensitivity to ridicule should be explored carefully, as it leads the prescriber to understand the Lycopodium child's personality more fully. Each constitutional remedy type is affected

by the same stresses in different ways.

Compare the Lycopodium child to Natrum muriaticum and Pulsatilla.

The Natrum muriaticum child can be destroyed emotionally by ridicule.

Natrum muriaticum children have such strong emotions, which they try to control, that the thought of being made fun of is itself overwhelming. They become severely traumatized, something

that will not be easily resolved once they are made fun of. The Pulsatilla child also has an emotional base of existence, being also easily hurt; especially if the ridicule threatens to take love

away from him. If he does not feel that this will happen, however, the Pulsatilla child will usually resolve the situation easily. The Lycopodium child is concerned about something quite

different. He does not have the strong, deep emotions of the Natrum muriaticum and so will not be so easily crushed emotionally. However, he is sensitive to social ranking and will not wish

to lose status. For this reason, the Lycopodium fears new situations, people, and activities that can potentially reveal his inadequacies. He resists new projects, new ideas, and even new games.

He fears that he will get up in front of the class, make an error, and look foolish.

Herein lies the Lycopodium fear of ridicule. Later in life these individuals learn to bluff their way through situations such as illnis, but as youngsters, they resist putting their rank on the line.

We can conclude that in Natrum muriaticum the criticism and condemnation comes from within. In Pulsatilla the fear of losing love is the major threat felt in being made fun of. In

Lycopodium the child is most concerned with how he or she is perceived within the group.

As a corollary to this concern about what others think, one finds that the Lycopodium child may compromise easily, dress neatly, and maintain a tidy appearance in general. Such behavior

shows that her energy is spent on climbing the social ladder, doing everything right so as to secure a desirable position within the social strata.

Lycopodium children are preoccupied with their looks. The children may be sloppy in their rooms and messy in the bathroom but they groom themselves well, always concerned about

their "show."

Lycopodium will often prove to be the remedy needed for seven- to ten-year-old girls who are preoccupied with clothes, hair style, jewelry, and makeup, even though her family does not

encourage this behavior.

A memorable case illustrating this aspect involves sixteenyear-old Jody. She complained of allergies, a postnasal drip, and sore throats that had become more or less constant during the

past two years. The case fit Lycopodium in the time and temperature modalities, becoming aggravated in the morning and late afternoon and in the cold. When asked what had happened in

the two previous years, the answer confirmed a Lycopodium diagnosis. When she was fourteen years old, she became pregnant. This shock seemed to place her not in grief or in sadness, but

rather in a deep Lycopodium state. She became so concerned about what others might think that she starved herself. For eight months no one suspected that she was pregnant.

Finally, when she could hide the truth no longer, she was found out and married the father of the child. As usual in Lycopodium pregnancies, she developed constant stomachaches.

And what is also usual for Lycopodium pregnancies, though unusual for one her age, she developed extensive varicose veins and hemorrhoids. She became severely constipated as well and

needed strong laxatives to have a bowel movement during the two months following the birth. It was impressive to hear how the emotional shock of this unwanted pregnancy, which put an

unbearable strain on maintaining social status and appearances, expressed itself physically. Even two years later, when she was first seen in our clinic, all the symptoms of her physical pathologies

still fit the Lycopodium picture.

Fear Somaticised

Apprehension and anxiety are often felt by Lycopodium children in the stomach and abdomen. They develop frequent stomachaches, nausea, vomiting, and loose stools or diarrhea. I remember

a teenager who complained of frequent sore throats. Along with all the Lycopodium modalities of the sore throats, food desires, and skin problems, she also described herself as having had a

"weak stomach" her entire life. She was a very good student who maintained a high grade average. Her scholastic abilities, however, did not lessen the anxiety she experienced before every test. Whenever she studied for any test she would develop stomachaches so intense she would eventually vomit.

Physical problems may also lead to emotional changes.

Charles, a boy of seven, became very crabby and challenged all of his mothers requests and argued with the neighborhood children with no apparent provocation. This behavior began immediately

after a hernia operation and persisted until given the remedy Lycopodium years later. It seemed that the physical Lycopodium symptomatology transferred to the emotional state after the operation. Another Lycopodium patient of mine developed similar irritability, along with fears of the dark and of being alone, after receiving allergy shots to cure a chronically stuffy nose.

In arthritis cases, as the inflammation increases, so too do the fears and irritability. Parents of arthritic children bemoan the transformation, saying that the child used to be more "happy-go-lucky"

until the physical changes occurred. Changes in emotions can be an especially important clue in diseases that have exacerbations and remissions. These slight changes on the emotional level can indicate to the parent that a flare-up is eminent.



Lycopodium. D12 – C30 – C200 Glob (var. manufacturers) 5 glob. 1x day or single doses

is indicated in cases of primary metabolic weakness: These children are generally frail, develop slowly, quickly feel satiated at meals, do not like to chew and crave sweet foods; breaking-down processes in the upper abdomen are deficient, resulting in

a tendency to bloating and constipation as well as a high frequency of allergies. The chief liability here on the attention is chronic stuffy nose, which—like the digestive condition—can be improved medicinally. This remedy is helpful for

• boys

• who are clingy to their mothers but need validation from their peers;

• are afraid when alone and may sleep with a sibling to avoid being alone;

• prefer to hide their weaknesses,

• yet are ambitious, expecting a great deal of themselves or having the feeling that others do.

The hyperactivity is moderate, taking the rather subliminal form of nervous unrest with attentional weakness due to metabolic weakness and inner nervous tension. It is important to air the issue of parental expectations and to include the father in

this discussion. Supportive measures for these children are yarrow compresses on the liver, adequate fluid intake and use of Hepatodoron Tbl. w for regulation.

Lycopodium-Kinder in meiner Praxis:

Sie sind oft durchaus freundlich und aufgeschlossen, dabei aber distanzierter als Phosphor, und der trotz jungen Jahren ausgeprägte Intellekt fällt – sofern man sich ihnen widmet - sofort auf, denn der Intellekt wird gleich einer Waffe präsentiert: Schau her, ich bin wer, weil ich was weiß! Ein Mädchen, natürlich eine der Klassenbesten,

fühlte sich immer als „fünftes Rad am Wagen“. Sie sagte von sich, sie sie anders: „Ich bin nicht witzig. Ich kann mir Witze merken, aber ich kann sie nicht erzählen. Ich weiß auch nicht, wie ich mit den Anderen reden soll.

Meine Mitschülerinnen gehen zum Beispiel gern gemeinsam zur Toilette. Ich finde das total blöd. Was wollen sie da? Sie schließen sich sogar zusammen in einen Toilettenraum ein! Und sie reden die ganze Zeit über Klamotten und Jungs und Schminken. Dafür interessiere ich mich einfach nicht.“ – Konsequenterweise verbrachte sie ihre Pausen in der Schulbibliothek, doch als ihr ihre Einsamkeit zu sehr bewusst wurde und nach Anschluss suchte, organisierte sie eine Online-Hausaufgabenhilfe für ihre schwächeren Mitschüler …

Eine Vierjährige setzte sich mit finsterer Miene an den Kindertisch, nahm sich ein Buch und „las“ – und erst, als ich mich zu ihr setzte und mir zeigen ließ, welche Buchstaben sie schon beherrschte, taute sie auf.

Selbst Babys haben schon einen intellektuellen Blick: mit gerunzelter Stirn starren sie die Erwachsenen an und wirken so, als sei ihr Körper nur eine Tarnung für einen verborgenen, großen Geist.

Ein Vater gewöhnte sich daher an, mit seinem Säugling technische Fragestellungen zu erörtern: „Wenn er mich so ansieht, meine ich immer, er versteht alles …“

Rubrik: Intelligent begleitet von schwacher Muskulatur

Willkommen in der Welt der „Nerds“! Wer die Serie „Big Bang Theory“ kennt, der weiß, wovon die Rede ist. Brillante Menschen, die Spaß an theoretischer Physik haben und sich mit 10 Jahren

kein Mountainbike, sondern ein hochauflösendes Mikroskop wünschen. Sie zählen zu den Klassenbesten, obwohl sie nie lernen, und korrigieren auch im vierten Schuljahr schon einmal gern den Lehrer. Ihre Freizeit verbringen sie bevorzugt vor dem Computer, allerdings nicht vertieft in Spiele, sondern in die Programmierung und den Austausch über Fakten mit Gleichgesinnten. Sie lieben Superhelden-Comics, haben mit dem anderen Geschlecht eher wenig im Sinn, und wenn sie zu einer Party gehen, dann zu einer LAN-Party (= 10 Kinder hocken die Nacht lang schweigend vor ihren vernetzten PCs und spielen Computerspiele). Es geht ihnen vielfach um Ruhm und Ehre, weniger um Geld, weswegen sie später oftmals in der Wissenschaft ankern – es sei denn, Microsoft entdeckt sie frühzeitig und sperrt sie in eine Kammer mit 15 Bildschirmen, 30 Festplatten, Cola und Chips.


Mark, 14 Jahre alt

Wenn die Pubertät zuschlägt, mutieren viele nette Kinder zu kleinen oder auch größeren Ekelpaketen. Das war bei Mark ebenfalls so. Mark war ein intelligenter Junge, der weder besonders faul noch

besonders ehrgeizig war. Das hat sich vor zwei Jahren geändert. Nachdem er in der Schule einige schlechte Noten bekommen hatte und ein neuer Mitschüler in die Klasse kam, entwickelte Mark

extremen Ehrgeiz: Er wollte besser sein als der „Neue“, was schwierig war, weil der nämlich ziemlich gut war, und das in fast allen Fächern. Mark machte sich einen Lernplan und wurde immer

nervöser. Er lernte sogar freiwillig am Wochenende (mit 13 Jahren!). Und sein Verhalten gegenüber seiner Mutter wechselte zwischen unerträglicher Arroganz („Wann räumst du endlich mal die Küche

auf? Sieh dir an, wie es hier aussieht! Eine ordentliche Hausfrau bist du nicht!“) und Hysterie („Ich werde das Abitur NIE schaffen! Ich bin einfach zu schlecht!“) Bekam er Kritik von seiner Mutter,

reagierte er entweder genervt, oder er brach in Tränen aus.

Aus dem Pennekamp:

Hochmut: u.a. Caust. Hyos. Lach. Lyc. Med. Pall-met. Plat-met. Staph. Sulph. Tub.

Eifersucht auf andere begabte Kinder in seiner Klasse: Ars. Lach. Lyc. Nux-v. Plat-met.

Da der Mangel an Selbstbewusstsein augenscheinlich war und auch ich die Arroganz während der Anamnese deutlich zu spüren bekam („Homöopathie, das ist doch total veraltet.“) gab ich

ihm Lyc. C 200. Nux-v. ist nicht so arrogant, und Sulphur ist meist selbstbewusster.

Mittlerweile (9 Monate später) hat Mark nochmals Lyc. in der C 200 und der C 1000 erhalten. Mark hat den „Neuen“ in seinen Leistungen immer noch nicht erreicht, aber erkannt, dass ihm die

Sprachen nicht liegen, er aber viel Spaß an Naturwissenschaften hat. Seine Stimmungsschwankungen haben deutlich abgenommen. Die „3“ im Diktat hat er ohne schlechte Laune oder

Weinen hingenommen, und er hat auch nicht versucht, die Note wegzudiskutieren, wie er es sonst gern getan hat („Ich habe eine 3 -, aber das ist ganz okay, denn der Klassendurchschnitt ist bei 3,

und ich bin der drittbeste Junge.“)

In diesem Fall habe ich übrigens weder bei der Mutter noch beim Vater einen Anlass für Marks Verhalten sehen können. Meiner Meinung nach sind beide liebevolle Eltern, die ihren Sohn weder durch übertriebene Leistungsforderungen noch durch Desinteresse zu seinem Verhalten bewogen haben.

Kinder immer auch Individuen und nicht nur das Produkt ihrer Erziehung. Viele Eltern –insbesondere die Mütter- machen sich Gedanken, ob ihre Erziehung Anlass für die Erkrankung oder das

Verhalten ihres Kindes ist. Manchmal sehen wir in der Praxis deutlich, dass unser kleiner Patient durch einen besseren Umgang genesen könnte. Oft genug erleben wir aber auch ganz normale Eltern.

Nach meiner Erfahrung ist es ein Teil der Therapie, den Eltern zu sagen, dass sie sich über ihr Verhalten keine Gedanken machen müssen. Perfekt ist niemand, auch Eltern haben schlechte Tage,

auch Eltern sind mal schlecht gelaunt, machen sich Sorgen oder streiten sich. Das ist Teil des Familienlebens, und kein Kind will in Watte gebettet werden.


[Rajan Sankaran]

Lycopodium hat eine schüchterne und introvertierte Kindheit, während Nux-v. eine waghalsige und spitzbübische hat.

Symptome: "Furcht vor neuen Bekanntschaften", "Furcht vor Männern", "Furcht vor Fremden", "Feigheit", "Schüchternheit" usw., deshalb bleibt es neuen Situationen und Menschen fern und hält sich immer an die ihm Vertrauten und Bekannten. Ein Erwachsener mag diesen Mangel kompensieren bzw. sogar überkompensieren.

· Großer Kopf, magerer Körper

· Kinder, die sehr alt wirken

· Kinder sind bescheiden, unsicher, zurückhaltend, können aber bei näherem Kennenlernen ein sehr erwachsenes Selbstbewusstsein an den Tag legen

· Kinder: Anginen (gern rechts), Schlucken tut weh, warme Getränke helfen

· Kinder, die nachmittags komplett fertig sind, wollen dann Süßigkeiten

· Kinder haben Angst, ausgelacht zu werden

· Sehr kleine Kinder; Jungen, die klein sind und darunter leiden (Lycopodium fördert das Wachstum! Mein eigener Sohn ist mit Lycopodium in 6 Monaten mehrere Zentimeter gewachsen)

· Kinder, die gern Chef sein wollen

· Kinder, die ihre Mutter herumkommandieren

· Kinder, die zu Hause frech und woanders höflich sind

· Kinder, die Angst vor „Beliebtheitswahlen“ in der Schule haben (Klassensprecher, Sportunterricht, Gruppenarbeit) – „Mich will niemand haben, obwohl ich so gut bin“


[Faroukh Master]

The timidity and cowardice of Lycopodium is best seen in children requiring the remedy. They have a fear of facing new situations, meeting new people, and will try and avoid the same.

As a result of this timidity, and also because of the physical weakness, in Lycopodium children we find an aversion to play.

Infants and children are unable to eat a full meal, as they get up in between bites, due to troublesome eructations and hiccoughs.

Sallow, thin, emaciated, old-looking children with dry, rough, wrinkled skin and distended abdomen, but a well-developed head and dark hair, muddy conjunctiva and long, narrow chest (older children tend to stoop walking).

Yellowness is frequently observed in the complexion and the discharges, like coryza, expectoration, vomitus, stool, leucorrhea, urine, etc.

During the day, the child kicks off all the warm coverings, while at night; he needs the same coverings to warm himself up.

Emaciation though eating well (malabsorption).

Liable to digestive upset, although they have good appetite and often eat and drink more than average.


Infant needs constant nursing (attention), even after a full feed (ravenous hunger), or cries for the breast, but stops after a few sucks (easy satiety).

[Tanja Hofmann]

Viele Leser kennen die Romane und Filme um „Harry Potter“ und seine Freunde. Hier finden wir eine gesunde bzw. im ersten Teil gesundende Lycopodium-Persönlichkeit: Hermine Granger.

Hermine betritt aufgrund ihrer besonderen Fähigkeiten als Tochter von nicht-magischen Eltern die Welt der Magier. Sie fühlt sich dort fremd und allein, was sie allerdings nicht zeigt – und versucht, sich mit den anderen Kindern auf ihre Art anzufreunden: Sie brilliert mit ihrem außergewöhnlichen Verstand und präsentiert ihre eigene Zufriedenheit mit ihrer Leistung auf eine derart herablassende Art, dass sich bald alle Kinder von ihr abwenden. Anstatt also Bewunderung zu erhalten, erfährt Hermine Ablehnung und Ausgrenzung.

Sie lässt sich hierdurch jedoch nicht beirren und fährt fort, penetrante Klassenbeste und arrogante Besserwisserin zu sein. Nur Harry Potter, selbst jahrelang ein ausgegrenztes Kind, hält zu ihr – vielleicht, weil er ahnt, dass hinter der überheblichen Fassade ein unsicheres Mädchen steckt, das nicht weiß, wie wahre Freundschaft gewonnen wird, das aber zu wahrer Freundschaft fähig ist

(wie wir in den späteren Filmteilen sehen werden). Hermine macht sich durch eine perfekte Ausführung eines Zauberspruchs und selbstgefälliges Gebaren unbeliebt

Hermine hält sich streng an Regeln: Von ihren perfekt ausgearbeiteten Hausaufgaben darf niemand abschreiben; gereizt erklärt sie dem geistig weniger gut ausgestatteten Ron Weasley, dass er selbst lernen solle. Maßgaben „der Obrigkeit“ sind Gesetz, und werden auch gegenüber älteren Mitschülern bis hin zum Petzen durchgesetzt. (Lyc: kann in diesem Stadium an Kali-c. erinnern, für den Regeln, Normen und Gesetze den sicheren Rahmen seines Daseins bilden. Für Lycopodium sind Regeln jedoch nicht gleichbedeutend mit Sicherheit, sondern mit Macht: Es gibt diejenigen, die die Regeln machen, und diejenigen, die sie einzuhalten haben. Und Lycopodium steht im kranken Zustand gern auf der Seite der Mächtigen.)

Anstatt jedoch zu einem geachteten Mitglied der Gemeinschaft zu werden, grenzt sie sich durch ihr arrogantes Verhalten zunehmend selbst aus, was sie jedoch nicht wahrzunehmen scheint. Immer wieder versucht sie, sich Ron und Harry anzuschließen, bis sie unfreiwillige Zuhörerin eines Gespräches zwischen beiden wird, in dem Ron seine Meinung über Hermine deutlich kundtut („Sie ist ein echter Albtraum. Kein Wunder, dass sie keine Freunde hat“).

Enttäuscht und wütend zieht Hermine sich zurück; nun ist sie gänzlich allein.

Hermine wurde soeben als „Albtraum“ betitelt. Hermine’s Wunsch, Teil der Gemeinschaft zu sein, zeigt sich erst zur Mitte des Filmes: Durch einen Zufall macht sie unfreiwillig Bekanntschaft mit einem gewalttätigen Troll. Ron und Harry eilen ihr zu Hilfe und werden selbst angegriffen. Dennoch können sie den Troll überwältigen. Den Lehrern, die Harry und Ron vorwerfen, sich dem Troll gegen jede Vernunft genähert zu haben, erklärt Hermine daraufhin, dass sie Schuld sei – was zunächst Ungläubigkeit („Ausgerechnet Sie, Miss Granger!“) und dann Punkteabzug für Hermines Turmgemeinschaft nach sich zieht. Dennoch ist die unverhoffte Hilfe in einer Notsituation für die sonst so selbstsicher wirkende Hermine ein Wendepunkt: Sie erkennt, dass sie nicht gleichzeitig Liebling der Lehrer UND ein Teil der Gemeinschaft sein kann, und entscheidet sich, ihrem eigentlichen Herzenswunsch nachzugeben: Freunde zu haben. Hermine versteckt sich vor dem Troll, während Ron und Harry für sie kämpfen. Fortan sind Hermine, Ron und Harry als Dreiergespann unterwegs, und Hermine lernt, dass selbst der begriffsstutzige Ron über Fähigkeiten verfügt, die Hermine nicht hat. Sie lässt ihm dann den Vortritt und beugt sich seinen Anweisungen, als es darum geht, gegen den bösen Lord Voldemort ein Schachspiel zu gewinnen. Sie macht sich also nicht mehr größer, als sie sich fühlt, und stellt sich mit ihren Klassenkameraden auf eine Stufe. Die Besserwisserei wandelt sich in kluge Vorausschau, und der stark ausgeprägte Sinn für Gerechtigkeit siegt über den Wunsch nach Macht.

Ihr analytischer Verstand und ihre Objektivität sorgen jedoch dafür, dass sie ganz automatisch einen herausragenden Platz in der Gruppe erhält – und gleichzeitig einige echte Freundschaften schließt.

Hermine ist nun Teil der Hogwarts-Gemeinschaft; die Kinder klatschen, weil Hermine für ihren Turm 50 Punkte gewonnen hat.
