Homeopathy Descriptions From Over 34 Years of Research

Dr. Easley

by Dr. Norman Easley

There are essentially five types of homeopathic remedies and practices that I have used in my clinical practice.

  • Allopathic: the identification of a homeopathic that best matches the symptoms elicited by a patient. Colds, influenza, food poisoning, injuries, and all conditions that are recent respond well to allopathic prescriptions.

  • Miasmic: miasm remedies remove acquired or inherited patterns of disease. They are generally the result of an overwhelming insult to the body systems by some form of toxin, bacteria, virus, or even psychological event. For example, if there was an exposure to Tuberculosis, the body's immune system will gear up to meet the challenge. In order to do this the respective nervous system must increase its activity to coordinate the immune functions. If this pattern of nerve response continues long enough, it will become "locked" into a new form of reaction. Then any type of toxin will set it off. This new form of reaction will then be characteristic of tuberculosis toxin stress and will be persist throughout the life. If the exposure to Tuberculosis occurs in a parent or grandparent while they were children, then this pattern of nerve activity (Miasm) can be passed down to their children through the genes. This will result in body weaknesses unique to tuberculin exposure causing allergies, respiratory disorders, and even psychological traits characteristic to the initial offender.

  • Chronic Prescribing: involves identification of the core physiological disorder. This requires more in depth questioning regarding the history and progression of the illness.

  • Constitutional: remedy that is prescribed to eliminate a specific psychological stress pattern that is instrumental in causing physical disorders. Constitutional Homeopathy is similar to Chronic Prescribing but involves the identification of the primary psychological event that precipitated the patient’s condition. For example, an individual who requires Natrum Carb will find themselves becoming regimented by self-imposed rules or guidelines in order to prevent the potential for emotional traumas. A thirty-five year old woman came into my office complaining of menstrual irregularity and associated problems which she had suffered from since her mid-twenties. Upon questioning she described how she was planning on marrying her college boy friend who eventually severed the relationship. During her grief period, she concluded that her full commitment to this man was the cause of the break-up. She should have never become intimate before marriage. Consequently, every relationship she developed since never went any further than a kiss and she never fully committed. Taking the Natrum Carb relaxed her out of this regimented state, her cycle normalized and she was soon able to find a healthy, committed relationship.

  • LM potency: These homeopathic remedies have an extremely unique ability to structure a new, healthy neurological pattern characteristic to a specific quality or virtue of life. For example, taking Kali Phos LM1 establishes the ability to stay focused without distraction. Taking Phosphorus LM1 promotes a true sense of purpose which enables the development of healthy boundaries. Giving Natrum Mur LM1 enables the individual to feel they are deserving of success and rewards. Of all the homeopathics it seems the LM potencies are the most impacting in the correction of various ailments.

  • I was first introduced to homeopathics as a student at NCNM in the early 1970’s. Initially, my impression was one of disbelief. How could a medication with such a small amount of the active ingredient be effective? I was intrigued however by the history of homeopathy and the fact that it had survived for almost 200 years.

    I soon realized the science of homeopathy was more of an art. It wasn’t enough just to identify the symptom patterns, it was necessary to find the physical core of the problem which was often hidden behind a wall of symptomatic confusion. For example, a patient with a classic sinusitis who matched several homeopathics that effectively treat mucosal membrane disorders has absolutely no response and in some cases actually aggravates with no residual improvement. However, the patient responds to Lachesis, a remedy that deals with vein and circulation disorders because the sinusitis was actually caused by engorged veins. It was necessary to know that the origin of the disorder was a breakdown in the integrity of the veins. This in turn caused a circulatory congestion which interfered with normal waste and nutrient distribution. Eventually, exposure to mold spores activated an inflammation that was not responsive to conventional antibiotics.This provided for me the first true issue with homeopathy.

Positive Results of Remedies Probably the single most important aspect of a psychological condition that is successfully treated with a homeopathic remedy is the positive results of having the condition. All psychological homeopathics have extensive beneficial effects. From the time we first become aware of our environment we are evaluating how we fit in. This results in the gradual awareness of our shortcomings, insecurities that prevent us from living our lives free of psychological discomfort. The awareness of insecurity within our psychological makeup serves as a stimulus for us to develop a method of behavior that can enable us to overcome the persistent weakness. We compensate. For example, if life is tough then we work harder, if we have low self worth we accumulate talent, if we feel we can’t please any one then our efforts go to pleasing ourselves. There are hundreds of these scenarios, each of which is represented by the correct homeopathic.

Homeopathic Constitutionals

 

Aconite

Aconite is required when the individual has experienced an incident that caused intense fear or a close encounter with death. Consequently, there is a persistent anxiety that causes avoidance complexes. Fear of crowds, of going to sleep, of getting too involved with someone. This is accompanied by an urgency to understand what is happening and what is going to happen. Restless. Needs to keep moving. These individuals are aggravated by any physical problems.

Positive Expression: The gift from taking Aconite homeopathic is the ability to sense their surroundings and know the consequences of actions.

wolfbane aconiteAconite is derived from Wolfbane. The positive expression of Aconite is perfect for action oriented activities that require an immediate sense of the environment to react and flow into the right direction.

Agnus Castus

Agnus Castus is required when there is emotional suppression or the inability to express themselves fully. These individuals get into suppressive relationships. Looking for the truth, the purpose of life, the essence behind everything. They feel that they need to hold in their expression to prevent getting involved in an unhealthy environment, or someone elses reality. They are the ones that know the answers in school, but would never volunteer them. They felt that they just know the answers, so why say them? If they said all the answers, they felt like they wouldn’t have any friends at all.

Positive Expression: The gift from taking Agnus Castus enables a commitment to the truth and the self. There is a clarity as to what is really happening in life. They know what is truth, the themes that are happening and the secrets that are unnoticed.

Alumen

Alumen is needed as a homeopathic remedy for individuals who feel they are incapable of performing resulting in a need to be isolated or somewhere else. They often do not want to be "here". They can't seem to do what they are supposed to. What does it look like? How do I do it? Physically, it is a remedy that improves intestinal problems: constipation.

Positive Expression: The gift from taking Alumen homeopathic is being in the moment and channeling their own personal expression.

woman with suppressed emotions Agnus Castus has a hard time with self expression. But they have a lot of unexpressed knowledge. Intuition is mostly the ability to tune into oneself and read the signs all around. The gift of this remedy is knowing the TRUTH of the moment.

baking powderAlumen is made from a combination of aluminum sulfate and potassium. Performance anxiety, and the need to escape. Who hasn't touched on those challenges in their lifetime? For an Alumen personality there is the gift of expressing themselves in the moment, bypassing the mind and accessing themsleves directly. Wow.

 

Alumina

Alumina is needed when there is a strong need to have a career, but also a strong need to be acknowledged, and approved of. This can produce a kind of co-dependence. These individuals have pure need for acceptance and pure rejection of that need at the same time. They are stuck. They are easily swayed off course due to their need to please others. When they don't get the aknowlegement they seek, they quit. They never get anywhere due to never being able to stay on a course. They feel that it will never happen for them.

Positive Expression: Giving this remedy causes the development of clarity regarding one's purpose, and the ability to stay on course.

 

Alumina Silicata

Alumina Silicata is given when there is a strong need to validate one's existence by having people accept, acknowledge, praise them for their knowledge, awareness, abilities, and talents. This validation insures the Alumina Silicata's place in the world in spite of any weaknesses or disabilities. To be thorough, complete, and organized is essential to prevent failure. "Overkill" becomes a way of life. Being overwhelmed results. There is then a need to disassociate, go to work, stay busy with own projects or activities. This creates a form of avoidance. The Silicata brings organization and attention to the details involved in the process of getting things done.

Positive Expression: The effect of this condition is to develop independence, personal confidence and a healthy detachment from others so they become more devoted to themselves and their own requirements. They are organized and can bring a project to successful completion. They attain self acceptance.

co-dependent relationship Alumina and the chain of co-dependence. Being a people pleaser is like being chained to other people. You end up charting your course based on the positive feedback of others. Then that course get's all whacked out because people think and want different things at different times. So you're left in the dead zone. "Isn't there anyone out there who knows what I should do?" When you finally realize that you really can't please other people and maybe, just maybe you should look to yourself, THEN you will finally get somewhere!!! Otherwise take the Alumina homeopathic and save yourself that journey!

organized stress

Alumina Silicata is similar to Alumina homeopathic. The difference is the Silicata influence. There is still all of the need for approval, but the Silicata gives thouroughness that connects all of the dots, and insures the success of a project.

Aluminum Met is needed when there is a sense of confusion about self, purpose and what the individual is doing in life.

The Carb influence gives rules and regulations where they try to structure their life in order to function according to guidelines established by themselves or society, but have trouble keeping up.

Positive Expression: They understand what it takes to be hygenic and orderly. They are organized and able to take care of themselves.

confusionAluminum has come up in relation to Alzheimer's. Remember? Don't use aluminum deodorants, or pots and pans because it can lead to Alzheimer's. Taking Aluminum Met when it's needed will bring life into focus again.

Ammonium Mur

Ammonium Mur is needed when there is a sense of uncleanness. Spells of profound depression that make the idividual unable to function.

They lose interest in taking care of their needs. Doesn’t eat right or take care of self. Feels dirty or disgusted. Felt done something so wrong that violated self. The Mur influence gives a sense that life is a struggle and full of hardship.

Positive Expression: The lights go on and they improve themselves and start cleaning up their lives. They become capable of maintaining basic hygene.

Antimon Crud

Antimonium Crud is required when there is a deep sense of undeserving. They feel unwanted and are feel that they are meant to have a life filled with bad luck. There is self-pity and excess concern with potential losses and misfortune. They feel as though they are punished by fate. This causes a nervous excitability which makes them averse to being touched or comforted. They are not affectionate. As a child they didn’t want to be tucked into bed at night. They can become irritated from being looked at or spoken to. Any form of attention seems to irritate them. It is as though they are not worthy of being praised, supported, or commended.

There is a pessimistic outlook on life, however this does not stop them from dreaming and yearning for the perfect situation, relationship, job, health or whatever they might aspire to. Often their idealized dream exaggerates reality to the point of supporting their failure because life will never live up to their dream. Nevertheless they strive towards their goal that they feel is going to relieve them from their pitiful existence. If the want to be healthy, they will make a career of seeking out the right doctor and faithfully following the prescribed treatment plans. If they feel relationships are the foundation of their existence, they will do whatever it takes to make the relationships work. In the process of their devotion to resolving their dilemma, they become accomplished and successful in their own right and often receiving, albeit temporarily, enough positive results that affirm that they are deserving of good fortune.

Positive Expression: Acceptance of thier own worth. Being in the moment with a reality that is great.

 

Antimon Crud Case History

An example is an eight-year old child who was very close to her mother, who suddenly died. The child never cried. She just felt as though she was not good enough of a person to have a mother. As a consequence, her mother was taken from her. From that point on in her life she wasn’t good enough to have or deserve anything that would be considered supportive, or anyone who acknowledged her positive traits.

 

 

ammonia moleculeWe use Ammonia as a cleaning agent. And a powerful one at that! It is so intersting to see the symbolism in nature. When you need the Ammonium homeopathic you are feeling unclean, and dirty. Taking Ammonium Mur homeopathic purifies the soul again.

 

depressionIt's frustrating to give compliments to someone who will find every way of delfecting them. When you realize that perhaps this person can't recieve you, then there is compassion. Giving has two parts that make it whole. Giving and recieving. Both are needed to make it complete. So take Antimon Crud, if it's needed, and go long for a pass!

 

Apis

Apis is needed when there has been physical or psychological trauma that has left the individual in a state of nervous confusion caused by feeling isolated and alone. There is no one they can depend on or that can help them. It feels as though the brain is swollen causing disorientation, indifference, and absent-mindedness. Underlying the resultant mental depression is nervous sense that something must be done leading to a restless, obsessive nature to resolve the loneliness. This causes the individual to be irritable, talkative, and excessively cheerful at times followed by sullen pessimistic depression. Impatience, anger, and explosive behavior are common. They appear to others as intense, demanding, confused, and even absentminded because they are so focused on finding the answer to their dilemma. There is this persistent need to resolve the situations that do not work, leading to frequent changes in focus and even jobs.

Positive Expression: Feeling part of a community that works together for a common goal.

Argentum Met

Argentum Metallicum is charactrerized by someone who is always in the process of trying to be something and put themselves into the public eye. Someone who is trying to be accomplished. Yet they always feel that they might not be able to pull it off. There is an underlying low self-confidence that acts as a motivator to present themselves as qualified and to attain positions of admiration and praise. They enjoy acknowledgement and praise because it affirms that they have the confidence they really feel that they lack. Often they will attain positions of advancement which really challenge their belief in themselves. To assert themselves they can become bold, demanding, and unyielding.

Positive Expression: Being and feeling number one.

honey beeBee venom is naturally made up of very powerful anti-infamitory agents. Part of the symptoms of needing Apis is the feeling of brain swelling with confusion. Take Apis homeopathic and you can channel the communty-minded bee who works together for the good of all.
silverFeeling second best? (silver medal) Well take Arg Met homeopathic and rise to your own personal best!

Argenticum Nitricum

Argenticum Nitricum is required when the individual feels a strong need to be accepted, yet, they feel incapable, weak, and of decreased integrity. There is an underlying lack of self-confidence which can only be overcome by hard work and their qualifications from being accomplished. The demonstration of competence is essential for them to be liked, appreciated, acknowledged, and successful. They must always prove themselves. Intelligence, efficiency, thoroughness, expedience are the tools used to demonstrate their competency. Consequently, they are well qualified, extremely capable and proficient in their chosen field of creativity. These individuals have minds that are extremely sharp and given to lateral thinking. They often take on projects that are not necessarily conventional or orthodox. They are intrigued by discovering new concepts or ideas. Expedience is also an essential ingredient to being successful. As a result, they are usually in a hurry. There is much anxiety regarding completion dates. They always feel driven to accomplish tasks efficiently and as quickly as possible. Their primary fear is failing, which only demonstrates the incompetence which they are trying so hard to overcome. There is a fear of losing self-control which might cause them to do something that would affirm their worst opinions about themselves. They do not like confrontations or being assertive which only challenges their need to be accepted. They cannot tolerate inefficiency in others anymore than they can tolerate their own. Nervousness, emotional isolation, inability to answer questions without much thought, anxiety, irritability, and impulsive behavior are common with the individual who requires Argenticum Nitricum. This causes impulsive, unpredictable behavior, and sudden mood shifts. They experience nervousness, causing the avoidance of groups and confrontations. They don't want to appear foolish or ignorant. They can be wildly impulsive, playing with reckless abandon. Feels distant with people and then takes a long time to feel close. Says and does things without forethought. Ambivalent.

Positive Expression: Taking Argenticum Nitricum eliminates the negative aspects of this condition and enables the individual to feel confident and capable of committing to and attaining their goals.

 

Arnica

Arnica is used as a constitutional homeopathic for eliminating old psychological injuries that have caused the development of increased physical and psychological sensitivity. Usually these individuals have experienced extreme or prolonged periods of trauma in their lifetime. The experienced trauma causes an underlying (subconscious) fear that they will be traumatized again. Consequently it is necessary for them to guard themselves constantly in their daily activities and relationships. This caution leads to an avoidance of active interactions, athletics, and intimate relationships. There is a hypersensitivity to being touched which eventually leads to avoidance of physical contact all together. They are distant, never touching or showing any affection. Symptoms and disorders seem much worse than they really are from the exaggerated sensitivity, but they cannot demonstrate their pain. They do not want to appear as a burden, someone who is in need of something. It is because the Arnica individual is so much more aware of themselves, their needs, and what can potentially go wrong. This makes them attuned to the potential of future events which might cause pain. Premonitions are common. They don't like to be alone. They might even have difficulty sleeping without a night-light. They essentially train themselves to deal with discomfort so well that they can take it when others cant. Consequently they become saviors.

Positive Expression: Taking Arnica removes the extreme hypersensitivity enabling the individual to relax and feel comfortable in their relationships with others and in their regular life. It also enables the individual to retain a healthy awareness of their environment. Arnica individuals are generally very intuitive and accurate in their perceptions of the environment. Taking the homeopathic allows them to maintain a healthy sensitivity without the fear and negativity.

stressed coupleTime is a funny thing. We organize it to operate together in a world that doesn't really live by it. Time to eat, time to leave, time to start, time to do.We adjust it to fit into the way the world evolves. Spring forward- Fall back. This way we can work together- to meet. What would happen if all the time devices were taken away?? Would we like it? Could we function together? Would we meet? I think so. On our own terms, and times...

The Arg Nit individual is on the fast track to be- to do-to have-and to hold-. A full commitment to do whatever it takes to be number one. Taking Arg Nit will let them FEEL number one. Ya ya.

arnicaWe use Arnica a lot. I'm still learning a lot about homeopathics, and it's interesting how they can be used in so many ways. Arnica can be used to reduce the pain and trauma physically and psychologically from being injured. I remember several years back when our son who was about 3 at the time got attacked by a small dog. He was scratched and gouged on the neck, head and face. Of course Norm gave him Arnica. It's a great example of how this homeopathic works. If we hadn't given him the Arnica, he could have had a fear of dogs, that would have led to some avoidance complexes. When the remedy isn't given right away, perhaps that's when you need the other forms of the homeopathic depending on how "deep" it goes within. Like 10Ms and 1Ms.

Arsenicum Album

Arsenicum Album 1m is used as a homeopathic when there is a negative psychological pattern of behavior produced by being raised in an environment where the individual's physical security was threatened. There were too many siblings to compete with, the parents illustrated the need for material wealth, or there was an emphasis to marry into wealth. As a result,there is an insecurity and excessive concern for one's own welfare that can only be reduced by the efforts of someone else. There are deep-seated feelings of vulnerability causing the individual to feel defenseless and therefore dependent on others for their survival. They need to be financially, materially, and emotionally secure in order to feel safe, and this security must be supplied by a dependable relationship usually their high school sweetheart and eventually their spouse. Receiving gifts is an important, because gifts affirm stability. For the working individual, promotions, bonuses, and the attainment of status and wealth signify security. In their employment, they become overly concerned with the stability of the company, the CEO, the employer or individual who is most directly responsible for their position in the company. Consequently, they are preoccupied by the health and earning capacity of their partner or company. Are they really healthy physically and mentally? Can they guarantee a steady income and material security? As a result, there is a nervous energy, an anxiety, associated with their psychology. They find comfort in knowing their source of stability is healthy and successful. They are soothed by their possessions which accumulate neatly in their homes, and there is a peace when they are organizing and admiring their belongings. All activities are the result of an underlying nervous energy which is a direct expression of their fear that they will not make it in the world without the proper support. They need to be with a good provider.

Positive Expression: Taking Arsenicum Album enables the individual to relax, to know that they are fully capable of taking care of themselves, and it enables a healthy concern and affection for those around them.

Aurum Met

Aurum Met is required when an individual was raised in an environment which was unstable, causing them to feel responsible for their family yet inadequate. All their actions stem from a sense of low self-esteem. Being challenged or contradicted will cause anger, depression, and even destructive behavior. They tend to feel suppressed. They are usually afraid of death. These individuals are often athiests. When they do believe in God they often feel that God ruined everything. They will often need to fix things in order to make them right so no one would ever suffer or die. Never feels like they succeed. Keeps all feelings hidden on the outside, yet they are alive and well on the inside.

Positive Expression: Positive, confident, unrestricted movement in the world. Believe in a Divine spirit that makes everything work. Easy emotional expression.

arsenicArsenic. The King of Poison it's been called. They used to kick each other off with it in royal circles. I can't help but postulate that perhaps this has a bit to do with the psychological workings of this remedy. Bear with me a moment... Okay so you're running with the rich folk, it's the 1800's. Your born into wealth, or married into it, and and boy is it hard to go down from the lap of luxury! So your parents make sure you don't forget to marry rich, because money doesn't last forever! And life will be in ruins if you don't. Just look at cousin Emma who lives in total squalor. She's got to do her own cooking for poor's sake! When you are sitting pretty, you gotta make sure that the one with the purse strings doesn't get incapacitated, or worse yet- be taken out by the King of Poison! So you nervously run around making sure that they are right with the world.

The irony would be that you would just need a bit of the hair of the dog (of your fear), Arsenic homeopathic in this case. Then you can rest at ease, maybe write some kid's books like Beatrix Potter. You wake up and find that you can take care of yourself without depending on someone else to take care of you. You can have the freedom to love for the sake of love, rather than for security. Just a thought.
gold Gold is my favorite color. There is magic in it. You never really see the whole color at once, it teases you and moves around. To me it's a bit spiritual too. Aurum Met seems very spiritual. I've heard said that athiest's are the ones that can believe in spirit more readily than the people that are apathetic. There is a seed of belief in the power and magic of the unvierse that is just a bit tarnished with this remedy. With a bit of polish (Aurum Met homeopathic), faith can glimmer again, and a state of grace as you move through the world will shine forth.

Aurum Mur

Aurum Mur is needed when there is a sense of detachment, not really connected to life. A belief that life is a struggle and that there is no God, because God wouldn't create so much strife. There is depression and a sense of giving up.

Positive Expression: Life becomes easy and flows with a divine sense of direction. Appreciation of the Divine influence in everything.

Avena

Avena Sativa is used for individuals who need to nourish themselves and follow their ideals. They are independent and resistant to invalid criticism. They must develop their own opinions. They are guarded. If a situation or individual is not good enough, they refuse to commit. These individuals will avoid things when they recognize that it is not good enough. They tend to be really stubborn. They are absolutely convinced of their opinions, and they believe only one opinion can be right. Their philosophy is “my way or the highway”. They have a fear of not being able to perform or of not being able to provide for their children when left to their own devices. There is always a sense that they might not be able to produce, causing a strong sense of being overwhelmed to the point of needing to give up or quit. They do better if there are no free choices. They need obligations and responsibilities to keep them directed. It is critical that they stay focused on succeeding, but they have trouble staying focused on anything that is solely creative, because they over-compensate by being over-prepared in order to guarantee that they are capable and good enough. Usually the mother was very domineering and made them feel bad about themselves. They needed their own opinions and needed to expresses themselves. They were not psychologically nourished. They were always left on thier own. They are vulnerable when left on their own.

Positive Expression: Open and relaxed, they can accomplish tasks with ease and creative input. They are nourished by their enviroment and from that nourishment sprouts creative expression.

detatchmentWhen there is no sense of spirit, life seems like it's mostly shades of grey.
oatsAvena is a foodstuff, oats. It is interesting that this remedy has to do with nourishment issues. Taking Avena when it's needed, will allow for the seeds within to sprout and provide nourishment to others. Become your very own garden.

Baptisia

Baptisia is needed when the individual is not committed to themselves and their own purpose. Consequently they respond to direction and take orders in order to accomplish what makes them feel that they have purpose. Their role in life becomes one of obedience, they are subservient in relationships and are happy to do so. Eventually this submission becomes distasteful and they rebel against it. They have their own purpose and it is necessary for them to find it.

Positive Expression: Finding one's own personal expression and purpose while still serving others in a positive and balanced way.

baptisiaService is very under-rated. Giving to others gives back exponentially. However, when this trait is out of balance, then it's not much fun. A Baptisia can find their purpose in a service capacity that helps other people. They can find ways to be of service in a healthy and fulfilling way in their relationships where they once were supressed.

Baryta Carb

Baryta Carbonicum is required when there is a psychological pattern of behavior characterized by lack of trust, resulting from being raised in an environment where there was no emotional security. Either the guardians were overly protective but emotionally inadequate or there was no one available for developmental support. For this reason it was a insecure and even frightening childhood. There was a lack of encouragement for independent growth and development. The Baryta Carb was not nurtured or emotionally nourished. Consequently, an underlying fear of the unfamiliar develops preventing the individual from attaining emotional maturity and self-confidence. They are reserved, insecure among groups, and lack the knowing that enables one to move about in the world. To compensate they require the support of a faithful, secure partner or spouse who can direct and encourage them. There is a strong need to maintain a familiar, safe existence, to stay simple. This applies to the intellect as well. The most comfortable thoughts are those that are familiar, effortless, easy to understand, and reliable. Complexity in any fashion is avoided, because complexity causes confusion, anxiety, and the inability to reach the proper solution. The Baryta Carb individual was not bred for complexity and does not want to change. They want to live in the same environment, with the same relationship, and stay in the same position in their employment. Familiarity is a safe existence for them. In later life, this might cause situations that are very difficult to resolve. They might find themselves in a relationship or job that demands progression. Fear and anxiety develop. What should they do? The desire is to do nothing, but life never stays the same. This causes a great deal of discomfort unless they can rely on someone they trust to make the changes and major decisions for them. Co-Dependence is a necessary way of life for the Baryta Carb condition. If a major change is forced, they become "numb" with anxiety. They can regress to a childish need to be mothered, held, and made safe. There was never enough support during the formative, developmental stages of life to teach them how to deal with change. These individuals were not nurtured but totally take care of: parents doted constantly always protecting and making sure they did everything. This condition prevented them from growing up, maturing, and becoming an individual.

Positive Expression: Taking the homeopathic Baryta Carb begins the process of "maturing" the emotional body, enabling them to realize they are capable of making comfortable changes. The developing self-confidence then allows them to develop, adapt, and progress along with the persistent dynamics of daily life.

Belladonna

Belladonna is required when there is a psychological pattern of behavior directed by an intense need to survive. These individuals are high-strung, opinionated and demanding, yet daydreamers, insecure, and isolated. They are very orderly, everything lines up. They need to be in control to assure they have a safe, stable environment. They know the right way for them to do whatever it is they are doing and must do it their way. This can be a source of argument. It is necessary for them to dominate their own private world in some respects to escape from the idea that they are trapped or confined in anyway. They need to be perfect, larger than life, invincible. They prove themselves to be unique or special because they work outside the average to maintain their individuality. They appear and act gruff with a rough exterior but they are very sensitive internally. If they know what is right they stand solid they cannot change their mind. If they make up their mind that is it.

Positive Expression: Competent, successful people that have strong ideas yet capable of delegating.

barium

Simplicity, Routine, Safety. When these things HAVE to be your life all the time, you've got a problem. What about the partners that live together in a co-dependent relationship for years and years, and then one day one of them is gone. Taking Baryta Carb when it's needed will get you back on your own two feet. So that you can take the changes of life and the progression of developement and reach new horizons.

belladonna

Foremen are general examples of this type of strong personality. You need to be opinionated and demanding to organize and direct a big operation. You need to have a sense of power (oftentimes accompanied by gruffness) to have people follow your lead. Taking Baryta Carb will make it more fun to be Great and successful with even better results!

Bellis Perennis

Bellis Perennis is required as a treatment when there has been a psychological trauma which was not fully expressed. Instead the essential emotions required for releasing the pain of trauma are successfully suppressed. As a result, they reside within the nervous system causing misdirected expressions, nervousness, confusion, and heightened sensitivity to potential physical or emotional traumas. Exaggerated feelings are expressed regarding personal health, the future, and whether there is sufficient strength to withstand potential traumas. Anxiety is the most common expression of these suppressed emotions. There is apprehension about the future, self-doubt, and eventually paranoia which can cause difficulty sleeping, waking at night startled by some unknown fear, and a nervous sense of vulnerability.

Positive Expression: There is a relaxation that the world is safe once again. Emotions are finally expressed and any past trauma is processed.

Bellis Perennis is a European type of daisy.

Back to one of the examples above, Bellis was also given to my son after his dog attack. When he came to Norm's office he was a bit frozen, and looked shocked. When Norm found that he needed a dose of Bellis, we knew that he had been really traumatized. Thankfully by taking the remedy he could process his feelings and move on.

Bryonia is Wild Hops. Boy a lot of this shy self conscious behavior reminds me of people in a bar before thier first beer! Just take a dose of Bryonia and you can feel like you've had a couple beers! Self confident and expressive! Of course if you take the remedy when you don't need it, you may "prove" the downside of Bryonia! So be careful!

Bufo is required when the individual feels detached, isolated from society, groups or even in relationships. They feel a need to become a part of the group. To do this they can be childish, rebellious, and even outlandish. It is their way of feeling they are getting the acceptance and attention needed. Alcohol consumption helps this process easing the discomfort of the separation and promoting what they feel to be acceptable behavior. Feels kids are pushing him away, and not playing with him.

cactus grand

This is a painful remedy to think about. I suppose like the prick of a cactus that feels like it stays in there long after it's gone. Norm says that this is a common remedy for holocaust survivors, and their decendents. When you think of the aspects of the need for this remedy you can imagine just a little of the horror of the people that endured it. Alone, isolated, powerless, need for love, servitude, numbness, self-doubt, undeserving. Taking Cactus Grand will bring back their God given right to feel love and community once again.
