KEY PREPARATIONS

In the course of their experimental medicine, the homeopaths, and even Samuel Hahnemann, found out that there were the so called “sensitive types”, i.e. people who have similar psychosomatic characteristics and respond well to certain basic (broad) homeopathic preparations. The continued taking and alternation of these, depending on the patient’s symptoms, leads to the permanent healing even of serious chronic diseases. In other particularly adverse cases, this is a very good supportive therapy, including for life.

Hahnemann speaks of several causes of diseases (miasm) and, respectively, of groups of people who are predisposed to the respective groups of diseases.

 

PSORA

The first and most basic type he calls “psora”. He considers it essential and it includes the majority of people. In the treatise on “Chronic Diseases”, he describes 47 antipsoric preparations.

People who respond well to “psora” have no power, and their vital processes run languidly and slowly, the person is always tired and puts up with everything and everyone. They are satisfied with little.

These people have 5 key characteristics:

1. Alternating of pathological events in the body. Skin infections are alternated with inflammation of the mucous membranes. For example, a rash that after passing (healed by an ointment) is followed by a cold, which after passing (healed by drops) is followed by a rash and then again by another inflammation of the mucous or serous membranes. This process can last months, alternating and eventually reaching a chronic condition of either the dermatitis or of the inflammation of the mucosa. This is especially typical in young children.

2. Alternation of behaviors. Alternation of optimism, punctuality and vitality, with signs of irritability, angering, and negligence, reaching to apathy in the final stages. In an acute situation these people can change quickly and easily from crying into laughter and exhilaration. There is hysteria and spasmophilia. In the final stages, severe depressive states may be observed, which become increasingly long and frustrating.

3. Propensity to parasitosis.

4. Difficult recovery after an illness; due to the extreme lack of energy and thus of effective resistance, these people recover very slowly from acute medical conditions. They exhibit a propensity to being anemic. Treatment is usually prolonged and painful.

5. Lack of rapid response to treatment; again due to lack of energy and a good immune response, these people are hard to influence in acute illnesses (rhinitis, angina, laryngitis, pharyngitis, lymphadenitis, otitis media, bronchitis, asthma, frequent angina with third tonsil) with carefully-chosen homeopathic preparations. Which is why it is good to commence the treatment in a more relaxed stage. In such situations, the acute phase, which will occur soon, will pass much more easily. Otherwise the patient may experience disappointment of the homeopathic approach and miss a major opportunity for a complete change of life.

In these cases, Hahnemann’s recommendation to use multiple antipsoric preparations given daily in high attenuations and for a long time is very useful.

 

The most basic preparations to respond well to “psora” are:

 

1. Calcarea carbonica – calcium carbonate

 

Peace, security and languidness.

These are people with a healthy, stable and shortened structure. They are strong in appearance, balanced and conservative. They are usually slow and relaxed, reserved and independent in life. They dislike efforts and sports. They focus on what they do. They speak softly, gently and slowly. They are usually good-natured, helpful and placable. They do not like change. Their main desire is for peace and security. Stress, physical and mental strain makes them sick easily. They dislike surprises and novelty. They are very shy and easily withdraw from combat. They exhibit a strong propensity towards depression. Fatigue is very quick to occur in these people; they are highly sensitive to cold, and tend to spasmophilia. They can often be both corpulent and languid.

 

Effect:

1. On metabolism (propensity to form lithiasis – gall and kidney stones)

– High blood pressure

– Diabetes

2. On the lymphatic system and tonsils.

2.  Sulfur

This is a substance, which, according to Samuel Hahnemann, was the leader of the so-called antipsoric medicines. People who respond well to its characteristics are typical representatives of “psora”.

These people, when in good health, are very active, cheerful and optimistic. At the same time they are very selfish and often this vitality is merely superficial. They communicate without really being overwhelmed by the problems of others. They soon forget about the conversation. They often use their community to achieve their goals. When they change to the opposite phase of their behavior, they become angry, irritable, confused and inaccurate; they start to talk a lot and do nothing. They may reach to a severe apathy, lethargy and total neglect of duties and appearance. They have a propensity to alcoholism and even to endless feasts. They are always hot and flush easily.

In advanced diseases, the preparation is complementary to the primary therapy. This condition may be accompanied by depression, alcoholism, obesity. The preparation is efficient mainly in diabetes and cardiovascular complications of diabetes.

These are people who wanted to be somebody, but due to various circumstances have remained small and others have grown around them and have outshined them in life. This evokes a strong sense of inferiority. They lose faith in themselves and their abilities, flee from responsibility, become very irritable. They become domestic dictators. Due to lack of self-confidence they appear strict and orderly, they criticize and contradict others, if given the chance. On the other hand they make no commitments and take no responsibilities. These people are hypersensitive, unstable and too emotional; they are busy, impatient and nervous. They are often very wordy and appear confident, but this is an illusion. They have many desires, but cannot fulfill them and become discouraged. They easily grow old (age prematurely). Skin infections are alternated with inflammation of the mucous membranes.
