NON-CAUSALITY AS A UNIFYING PRINCIPLE OF PSYCHOSOMATICS-SULPHUR. The concept of causality, namely the linear association of phenomena by cause and effect, has always been an unquestioned logical category; in scientific work, especially, it seems to us the only possible and thinkable one. To satisfy our scientific logic-the causal relationship of events has to be established before we can reasonably assume an understanding of the phenomena in question.
ARISTOLOCHIA CLEMATIS. Systematic provings upon healthy individuals were carried out by Julius Mezger of Stuttgart, Germany. The complete Materia Medica of the drug is published in his book Gesichte Homoeopathische Arzneimittellehre (Sifted Materia Medica), Karl Haug Verlag, Stuttgart, Germany.
WHEN THE WELL-SELECTED REMEDY FAILS TO ACT. Needless to say, this order of frequently is given as a summary of one prescribers experience with his particular case material. It is meaningless in the face of a given individual patients problem, which must always be evaluated on its own merits, regardless of all statistical considerations, as though one never had seen or heard of a similar case.
THE PROBLEM OF SOUL BODY RELATIONSHIP IN PRESCRIBING. We have thousands and thousands of facts, unrelated because the key is lacking, but they are there for the asking and, quite specifically to your question, if you would study the material in Jungs work, you would find a treasure chest for homoeopathic work, particularly for homoeopathic correspondences between animal and psychic life.
THE ANALYSIS OF A DYNAMIC TOTALITY SEPIA. The technique which was used for the interpretation of the pathogenesis of a drug is in many respects similar to the way in which analytical psychology unravels the symbolic context of the unconscious material of patients as found in dreams, visions and associations.
Examination showed an area of muscular constriction along the lower spine with somewhat accentuated but normal reflexes and undisturbed skin sensorium. However, the patient was in a state of frenzied restlessness, screaming and crying with pain, unable to lie still, yet aggravated by any motion. There was no urge for stool what-so-ever and urination could be induced only by pouring warm water over the perineum.
TOWARDS A BASIC LAW OF PSYCHIC AND SOMATIC INTERRELATIONSHIP. Progress in science depends upon finding relatively simple basic approaches that can encompass in a living way the fundamental principles which are common to the confusing array of the diverse phenomena, specialities and particulars. For, as Linne aptly states, “Nature is always similar to itself, though to us, owing to our inevitable defects of observations, it often may appear to dissent from itself”.
IMPATIENCE A DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS. An evaluation of the psychological personality should be a part of the routine case taking. Particularly, when there is a dearth of sufficient generalities and modalities on which to base a proper prescription, we can make the most of our evaluation of the psychological type.
THE LAW OF SIMILARS IN ANALYTICAL PSYCHOLOGY. By offering the psychological remedy in the reflection of the inner difficulty by an image taken from outer nurture, actually an inner disorder is matched without corresponding similar outer counterpart. On the psychological level the similimum as a corrective force-principle is presented. A homoeopathic approach is found to be the language of creative nature, within as well as outside of us.
PHOSPHOR. Emotionally, the loss of inhibitions makes him easily excited, getting beside himself with anger, vehement, perspiring from excitement (as does the drinker and the anesthetized patient), fearful, cowardly, sad, hysterical, alternatingly laughing and crying, or just tearful and gloomy, weary of life, and misanthropic.
