Creating Waves of Awareness
Silicea [silica] is a wonderful drug having the conscious of self-image. I find no other drug could equal its concern about self-image. This remedy in the sycotic miasm exhibits monomania, obstinacy and egotism. Hence, these people have a fixed image on themselves and want to be recognized by their image only. This is very strongly marked in this remedy. It is not the good opinion as in palladium, but the image they think of their own. They think every one should see them as they are. They are very obstinate and fixed in it. This is the CORE DELUSION OF THE REMEDY.
Dear Dr. Nagarajan
SILICA is classed an anti -PSORIC remedy and not anti -SYCOTIC. (see: 1)
I could not find reference to your view, that Silica makes the prover concerned about self- image. there is no mentioning of monomania. I refer to the proving carried out by Hahnemann. (see: 1)
1) S. Hahnemann: die Chronischen krankheiten Band 5 / zweite Auflage 1839 S.: 240 ff.
Thanks for your quotings. You are right, as per Master Hahnemann it comes under the anti-psoric remedy. But i hope you know the recent understanding that every remedy has all the miasmatic states. It is one or the other which dominates can be called as the miasm of the remedy. Silicea is also SYCOTIC, which is represented through its symptoms. The fixed ideas, obstinacy, egotism makes it a sycotic remedy.
For your second doubt, i would like to tell you to refer RADAR 10, Section MIND; Rubric MONOMANIA- Silicea is one of the remedy mentioned there. The source refers to Dr.C.M.Boger, Dr.J.T.Kent. As we know there are number of persons who have done provings other than our Master.
