Creating Waves of Awareness

Anyone noticed how well Palladium represents the Sycotic Miasm?

Here's some Sycosis Themes from George Loukas:

The sycotic person will show off - glamorous looks, recognition, and so on are very important. They crave attention all the time and keep thier faults to themselves and hide their feelings. They are stiff because they want to stay in control of their emotions. They want things to be fixed so they focus on details and classifications. It can lead to dogma and pedantry. Doubts and anxieties (psora) are exaggerated and overdone.

How Palladium is THAT!? Palladium is so typical: "I lack confidence sometimes so I feel insecure. I'v got to be perfect so I must to hide my mistakes. If I'm appreciated I don't need to hide my mistakes. Thinking that, "My way is best" can lead to rigidity and fixed ideas".

* Delusions, appreciated that she is not
* Ailments - mortification/wounded honour/being offended/egotism.
* Delusions - abused/criticized/insulted/neglected/tall/enlarged.
* MIND - HAUGHTY - wounded self-esteem; wishes to be flattered
* MIND - CONFIDENCE - want of self-confidence

These issues seem to coincide with some of the things we know about the 3rd Chakra, too ...

Development: Autonomy. Individualty. Will. Self-Esteem. Power.
Blocks: Glamour. Rejection and criticism. Secrets.

This is great Stephanie..

As you just talked about Zincum Met, I wish to share some more views about Zinc..Please find some facts below:

Zinc is an important remedy in maintaining proper levels of vitamin E in the blood and also aids in the absorption of vitamin A. It is particularly suitable for people who suffer from extreme nervousness and overall exhaustion. The zinc personality type typically experiences burning pains throughout her body, particularly around the spinal column. Her muscles may twitch or jerk and her legs may tremble, especially in the evening before bedtime. The patient may cough often and feel constriction in the chest (As you rightly pointed out).

Zincum Patient always has characteristic “Mood” Like;

Poor Concentration, feeling of hysteria, Intolerance for noise, weariness and exhaustion, sleeplessness during the night, temporary memory loss, decline in intellectual abilities due to mental strain and exhaustion.They find the demands of everyday life overwhelming and, thus, are easily exhausted.

Zinc is a trace element; it plays a significant role in boosting our metabolism. As a homeopathic remedy, it can be a source for the nervous system. The homeopathic preparation is used to treat anxiety and the headaches that accompany it, as well as mental and physical weakness and exhaustion. Because physical and mental strain impact brain function, Zincum Metallicum can also improves a person's ability to focus, renewing vitality and stamina. It can to activate the immune system - combating weakness and exhaustion – it will calm down excessive nervous activity in the organs, including spasms of the intestines and lungs and the twitching of leg muscles. We find similar symptoms in our materia medica.

Don’t you agree, if we can correlate any substance with its biological need in the body, its related clinical and mind symptoms, if found deficient/excess, can help us to understand Homeopathy even more rationally..

What great insight and interpretation, Dr. Sadanand! I discovered that Crotalus venom contains Zinc proteases which cause platelet clumping and also hemorrhages. The venom also contains crotalin which stops clotting. According to Wikipedia (!) the fear from the bite helps spread the hemolytic and hemorrhagic effect.

I wonder if the two virtually opposite effects would account for Zincum Met rubrics such as:

Compare with Crotalus cascavella, which has:
EXTREMITIES - COLDNESS - Foot - icy cold

See: Crotalus

Hello All,

This is really a good discussion. It is revealing finer aspects of chemical elements. If you look from their natural appearance & qualities point of view; one can imagine their reflection on mental sphere once they are potentized.

Please find some facts below which i felt to share over here;

Palladium, along with platinum, rhodium, ruthenium, iridium and osmium form a group of elements referred to as the platinum group metals (PGMs). Platinum group metals share similar chemical properties, but palladium has the lowest melting point and is the least dense of these precious metals. And we can find mental picture of palladium as weeping mood, easily offended, loves or craves for esteem.

Where as Platinum also comes from the same family it looks similar to palladium (silvery-white and lustrous in appearance) It does not oxidize at any temperature. Platinum has wear and tarnish resistance characteristics. It possesses high resistance to chemical attack, excellent high-temperature characteristics and stable electrical properties. Platinum is more precious than gold or silver.

And we can find mental picture of platinum as contempt of others, arrogant, proud.

Thanks Barb. That's a deep analysis. In particular, the thing I noticed about my healthy "Palladium Person" was, as Scholten says "Obvious performance" - he uses performance as a means to communicate, which can go from cracking jokes all the time to performivity in the workpalce to full scale theatrical productions. There is strong ego to be sure, constructed by environment, identity and upbringing and very much flowing outwards ... but not the weaker ego of Phos or the overbearing 'power' ego of Platina.

In this case the sense of self is so strong that I'm tempted to think its an expression of Europium "the wise guy" who is very self-assured but still has a desire for approval.

Palladium is only listed as sycotic so it should represent the sycotic miasm well. In my understanding, a syphilitic remedy is short on positive pathways and quickly hits the negative pathway. They can't compensate because they are already so ill. This is the differentiating mental aspect. All remedies have psoric, sycotic and syphilitic stages. In the provings platina wants to kiss everyone just like pulsatilla. This affection could be psoric but how long will a remedy like Platina stay in that emotional state? Not for long. You can see the syphilitic behavior in Platina because platina has very few positive compensations She has that large ego and is so highly sexed yet with the need to have a spiritual relationship she is almost doomed to fail. She can barely be positive. Platina feels so great she is soon isolated. She then gets restess and changeable and quickly heads to the negative side with depression, forgetfulness, morose. Platina is psoric/syphilitic whereas Palladium is psoric/sycotic. Palladium wants to be viewed as great but Platina is already there. That's why the delusion she is separate from her family.

A balanced third chakra seems to be indicative of Maturity and Self-actualization.

Jan points out that major themes of Stage 10 are being centered and balanced. When a healthy Palladium performer loses balance the mental anxt centers on what went wrong - "What did I do wrong?" This is the beginning of all the Sycotic Sx that Loukas describes (above).

I'm sure Pall. has Syphilitic aspects too ... if Herings law is correct these must develop as the process takes hold and goes deeper.

To Paul Dixon: Have you been talking about Platina or Palladium!? I am a little bit confused!
Comment by Stephanie Nile on October 12, 2009 at 12:40pm
As Dr. Navneet says, one of the most crucial rubrics is

'Delusions, appreciated that she is not'.

The argument looses force without it.

Dear Paul ~ thank you for clarifying this subject and differentiating between some of the other remedies which have similar mentals, but different motivating factors. I will need to keep this in mind!

it sound like LYCO to me
