Abstract: The purpose of this Hoarding algorithm is to provide a framework for understanding hoarding in a homeopathic way. By looking beyond just the symptomatic presentation of hoarding, the homeopathic practitioner can begin to appreciate the context and root cause of this disorder. Furthermore, material medica is explored in

a way that opens to future possibilities.


“Hoarding disorder is a persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions because of a perceived need to save them. A person with hoarding disorder experiences distress at the thought of getting rid of the items. Excessive accumulation of items, regardless of actual value, occurs.” 3.

“Often surfaces during the teenage to early adult years.”       “Initial start of hoarding symptoms is thought to happen in childhood or adolescence (typical onset around

age 13) and it is chronic and progressive. Hoarding is more common in older than younger age groups.”

Incidence: “occurs in an estimated 2 to 6% of the population of the USA.

Some research show hoarding disorder is more common in males than females. It is also more common among older adults–three times as many adults 55 to 94 years are affected by hoarding disorder compared to adults 34 to 44 years old.” “hoarding disorder is more common among people who have a family member who has hoarding disorder.”

Das Bild von Kalium carbonicum: ein Konservativen, der alles bewahrt: Erinnerungen, Riten, Pflicht und Ordnung, behält seine Gefühle für sich, bewahrt aber auch Stuhl, Wasser (Ödeme) und Sekrete.

Er ruht sehr in sich und ist unflexibel.
