Grundsätzlich gelten Kinder unter fünf Jahren (...) als besonders gefährdet." Auch das Testen der Tiere auf Salmonellenbefall sei keine Lösung, sagt Veterinär Pees.
"Selbst wenn dabei einem Tier heute Salmonellen-Freiheit attestiert wird, kann es die Bakterien morgen schon wieder tragen", sagt der Tierarzt. "Reptilien haben nun mal Salmonellen, sie erkranken nicht daran, sondern brauchen sie womöglich sogar in ihrer Darmflora." Versuche, Reptilien mit Antibiotika salmonellenfrei zu bekommen, seien gescheitert. Die einzig wirksame Vorbeugungsmaßnahme für die Übertragung der Bakterien von Reptil zu Mensch sei, direkten und indirekten Kontakt zu vermeiden.
Zu Hause könne man Reptilien ausreichend sicher halten, wenn man die Hygieneregeln befolgt. "Aber im Kindergarten sollte man das nicht machen“.
Es sei kaum sicherzustellen, dass sich jedes Kind, das die Tiere anfasst, auch wirklich die Hände wäscht.
What is the Psoric/Saurian (= reptilian) connection?
Both dragons. and serpents have skins covered in scales; as does the individual suffering from psoriasis. However, in light of this discussion, it intrigues me that the word psoriasis derives from the Latin word for itch: psora, and has phonetic consonance with the Greek word for lizard: sauros. Is there a connection; and, if so, what is it?
The psoric miasm is synonymous in our literature (among some) with “Original Sin” a term used among early masters to describe our basic “flaw” as described by Hahnemann in §81 “Psora is the true fundamental cause and engenderer of almost all … forms of disease…”. So (the oblique reference to the story of “The Fall” in Genesis, not withstanding; but, keeping in mind that Eve’s apple was probably a green one) oxytocin, due to the association that it has with homeostasis and the pivotal role that it plays during conception, birth and lactation in driving positive epigenetic outcomes is, in my opinion, what drives Psora in its compensated form.
Because we focus on disease, Psora is traditionally associated in homeopathic philosophy with: hypo-function; lack; weakness and an empty, all-gone feeling. All of these are the generally accepted keynotes of Psora, and relate to functional disturbance on a cellular level and this is what precedes pathological change if homeostasis is not restored.
In that regard, Psora is recognised as the primary (fundamental) miasm and I think that Hahnemann got it right when he nominated but three miasms and Joe Rozencwajg (interestingly proposes that these three miasms are not so much about the epigenetic imprint of grand diseases, but rather more about the three basic human metabolic pathways of homeostasis (Psora), anabolism (Sycosis) and catabolism (Luesis).
This is a perspective with which I agree. Psora, in its oxytocin-moderated compensated form, enables the individual to maintain balance (homeostasis), while Sycosis (which is driven by adrenalin, nor-adrenalin and cortisol; all antagonists to oxytocin) has an anabolic function. That is, it helps us to “grow” if we’re prepared to face up to life’s challenges and fight them.
In a practical sense a little bit of Sycosis serves us well and possibly allows us to find success in the minutiae of daily living, whereby we’re “up” for the fight and can well attend to Maslow’s lower order priorities.
Furthermore, if we accept that the catabolic pathway is associated with Luesis, it is possibly driven by insulin. It’s the lock and key hormone which can underpin “mature onset……”pathology when the telomeres shorten and all bodily systems degrade as the time for transitioning from Life approaches. On the one hand, we associate Luesis
with death and destruction; but, on the other hand, it is also about breaking through and regeneration. For those who acknowledge the process of reincarnation, it is possibly insulin which rules over the final “choice”; that of being offered the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven or of being locked out such that the soul/vital force needs to do it all again.
And so, the business of doing Karma is a bit like that of the snake that needs to grow another skin in order to live another day. When one is done with “the lessons”
the “higher purpose of existence” is attainable. The serpent, therefore, probably does not hold the answer to immortality (self-realisation) but ties us to the pathway leading
to reincarnation. The reptilian energy (fight/flight; focused on survival only) is essentially sycotic so the shadow is where it best lies; it eschews the light.
Adaptation in evolutionary terms is associated with the instinct to preserve the genes; to survive. So, traces of our genetic heritage are always going to be part of our current makeup. And, while on one level Psora is possibly corrupted by a saurian genetic tag associated with our reptilian evolutionary origins, it is possibly that tag which drives reptilian behaviour during the primal period where reproductive practices tend to circumvent the oxytocic pathway leading to the production of offspring with a dearth
(= Mangel) of oxytocin receptors, bereft of a suitable microbiome, and caught up in the grip of Sycosis.
I believe Psora can be our ally if, as a species, we embrace the oxytocic agenda and conceive, birth and nourish our offspring as Nature intends, such that the negative attributes of hypo-function and lack will be balanced out. Furthermore, if we acknowledge that, since oxytocin is a direct antagonist to the stress hormones, we will
(when oxytocin receptors have been adequately established during the primal period), derive maximal benefit from the positive attribute of ebullience which allows us to
fully engage in Life. This makes sense when we acknowledge that an “itch” is just as likely to refer to a sense of dissatisfaction with the status-quo. So, if we trust in our
ability to make good choices when guided by a sense of curiosity, and are prepared to keep up the struggle to be Human, and the desire for positive social engagement
which encourages us to “Seek so that we might find” we can fulfil the dictates of §9.
Enlightenment is an interesting word. It is a state of “being” arrived at as a consequence of good choices and implies that you’ve attained Wisdom and figured it out; you’ve moved from the shadow into the light. And as the songster-poet Leonard Cohen so exquisitely explained to us: “There is a crack in everything…that’s how the light gets in”, using the positive attributes of Psora will facilitate self-realisation; and this is possible when Psora is well-modulated as a consequence of acquiring maximal oxytocin receptors due to being born and mothered well.
Keep in mind that primates lactate for six times the gestation rate. So, when humans have access to the maternal breast for such an extended period and wean when they
are ready, they are best able, according to Erikson’s Schema, to engage in Life from a position of Trust and Autonomy as a consequence of having resolved Life’s initial two crises in a satisfactory (i.e. positive) psoric manner. When the infant has not been able to get established on the psoric tread of “The Stairway to Heaven” then he is consigned to the shadow of Sycosis and the luetic miasm will greet him at the end of his days and the reincarnation pathway, instead of the ascension pathway, becomes his only option.
“The Author of all good, when He allowed diseases to injure His offspring, must have laid down a means by which those torments might be lessened or removed.” (Hahnemann Lesser Writings)
Lack of maternal feeling, striking out and aggression.
* Feel their family has been unfair to them/they backed out, they changed
* have the sensation: you have been unfair to me/family on whom I am meant to be dependent/don’t feel they have got enough from family/I don’t want to
take responsibility for family and v.v.
* Senses imporTANT. To all animals but most important to reptiles
* The hiding/the suddenness of attacking is the maximum in reptiles
* WANTs AN EASY LIFE/Relaxed… wanting no responsibility in life/it SCARES
* CHEATING/TREACHERY/always trying to get money/cheating/hiding
* Quick + agile
* Very docile… but attacks is far more sudden than other animals
* AGILE/ALERT/SHARP (snakes)

Strategisches Denken, Raffinesse, psychologische Kriegsführung und das Überraschungsmoment, aber auch das Gefühl von Einsamkeit und Isolation, verweisen in diesem Fallbeispiel auf die Gruppe der Reptilien.
Als Nachkommen der Dinosaurier bilden die Reptilien mit den Vögeln die gemeinsame Gruppe der Sauropsida. Die Kriechtiere haben dabei die aufstrebende Kraft ihrer Vorfahren verloren, ihre Sinne sind auf die unmittelbare Wahrnehmung der nahen Umgebung beschränkt, vor der sie sich wegen ihrer mangelhaften Temperaturanpassung schützen müssen.
In der Homöopathie assoziiert man mit dieser Gruppe vor allem grundlegende Überlebensinstinkte des als Reptiliengehirn bezeichneten Stammhirns. Wer eine Arznei aus der Klasse der Reptilien benötigt, hat meist nur wenige, aber klare soziale Kategorien: Feind, Beute, Konkurrent, Sexualpartner. Geht es um Hierarchie, Bewertung, Anerkennung, Familiensinn oder Herdentrieb geht, denken wir eher an andere homöopathische Arzneigruppen.
do reptiles have in common? Reptiles are coldblooded. This gives them a
distinct disadvantage compared to other creatures. Unlike mammals, reptiles are
not able to sustain exertion in order to escape from a predator or pursue a
prey. Being coldblooded, they are not able to generate heat and need to come
out in the open to bask in the sun.
So what survival strategy do they adopt?
Each reptile adopts its own unique survival pattern, yet reptiles in common are often hidden, camouflaged and rely upon sudden and surprise attack.
We know that all reptiles have underlying feelings of needing to remain concealed, being at a disadvantage, hidden violence, sudden change of form, attacking from a hidden position, deception, violence, etc. Each order will have different shades or gradations of these themes. There could be a very strong prominence of one feature, where it
completely stands out.
Reptilien waren die ersten Landwirbeltiere mit einer vom Wasser unabhängigen Fortpflanzung. Die Embryonalentwicklung geht in einer schützenden, fruchtwassergefüllten Eihülle (dem Amnion.) vonstatten, was sie von Amphibien und Fischen unterscheidet.
For example in testudines the feeling of being defenceless and weak is very strong and then we see the need to retract inside their protective shell. This will differentiate them
from snakes, crocodiles and lizards. Snakes, being limbless, also feel at a disadvantage, but they have their own characteristic ways of attack/defence i.e. by being venomous or by constriction. Lizards are more adept in being agile, alert and to stun their predator by suddenly changing their behavior by changing color or amputating their tail (autotomy) etc.; and crocodiles are specialised by their sudden burst of violent activity from a completely silent position.
We can understand that reptiles have evolved into an impressive spectrum of shapes and sizes: from the shell-covered turtles and tortoises, to the long, sinuous snakes,
to the swiftly moving lizards, to the heavy bodied crocodiles; along with a wide variety of strategies to survive.
Here their characteristics:
Tortoises, turtles and terrapins (Testudines): About 313 species/Scales modified into a shell/Four legs/no teeth/instead horny beak which covers their jaw.
Turtles live near or under water. They only come onto the land to lay eggs and to the surface of the water to breathe.
Tortoises (sometimes called land turtles) live on land.
The land-based tortoises pull their head, legs and tail into the shell for protection.
The aquatic turtles, with their compromised ability to pull inside the shell, either snap or slide into the water, or swim away swiftly.
No parental care of young. Highly sexual.
Long, powerful tails and short legs.
A unique body form that allows them to be suspended in water - partly hidden and submerged, except for their eyes and nostrils which are exposed.
Nest attendance and parental care of young is commonly seen.
Territoriality. Stronger male dominates and fights aggressively for dominance and mating rights.
Terrifying ability to explode into sudden violent
Activity - completely unexpected in such an otherwise lethargic-seeming creature. Lie-in-wait, ambush predators.
Snakes: About 2700 species.
More active in cooler temperatures than other reptiles. Come out from their burrows at night to feed on insects and other small animals.
Limbless, though some have remnants of tiny legs near their tails. No eyelids or ear openings.
They have an immovable covering of transparent scales which protects the eyes.
Active foraging or camouflage and ambush attack. Cannot tear, can only bite or constrict. Swallow prey whole, headfirst, then retreat to a safe place to digest slowly.
Some snakes can dislocate jaws to swallow prey larger than they themselves are.
Most dangerous are the venomous and constrictor. Strikes are fast and accurate.
Distract an onlooker’s attention, enlarging throat flaps to bluff or appear bigger than they are, etc.
These visual signals include aggression between rival males and courtship rituals between the sexes. limbless, though some have remnants of tiny legs near their tails/skin
covered with platelike, tubercular, or flat scales that can be overlapping or juxtaposed.
No eyelids or ear openings/an immovable covering of transparent scales which protects the eyes. Active foraging or camouflage and ambush attack.
Cannot tear, they can only bite or constrict/swallow prey whole, headfirst, and then retreat to a safe place to digest the meal lowly. Some snakes can dislocate jaws to
swallow prey larger than they themselves are.
Most dangerous are the venomous and constrictor. Strikes are fast and accurate.
Lizards: Most lizards have four legs, while some are limbless.
Stun their prey, shake vigorously, bite and tear. Able to catch fast-moving prey/are fast-moving (most species) and agile.
Characteristics of locomotion-ability to cling to vertical surfaces.
Communication through highly stereotyped behavior – using colors (camouflage or enhancing colors) and various body morphology (tail autotomy to distract an onlooker’s
attention, enlarging throat flaps to bluff +/o. appear bigger than they are).
These visual signals include aggression between rival males and courtship rituals between the sexes.
Amphisbaenians: resemble the worms, with no limbs in most species or very small front legs, but have annular scales. Inhabit underground tunnels and burrows.
Specialized for underground hearing.
Tears off chunks of flesh from prey by spinning body while gripping with mouth. Can move in both directions.
Crocodiles, alligators, caimans and gharials (Crocodylia): About 23 species/Large bodies with bony, plate-like armor in the skin along their backs.
Heavy, powerful, and expandable jaws, lined with pointed teeth capable of killing.
Hold prey underwater until it drowns, drag it away eating by tearing off large pieces by rolling it in what is called the crocodile “death roll”.
Two species found on island off coast of New Zealand. More active in cooler temperatures than other reptiles.
Come out from their burrows at night to feed on insects and other small anima.
Species have dwindled to two, possibly due to losing competition with true lizards during later Mesozoic era and onwards.
Active at night; spend days in burrow or basking at burrow entrance.
