This Covid pandemic will certainly be remembered for the fear it has brought to the human race. Fear is a common experience of all human beings. We feel fear when we experience any situation that makes us believe that we are in danger. It is a basic emotion of self-protection that is activated when we feel that something or someone can cause us some harm.
For many this fear manifests as a constant state of anxiety, nervousness, irritability and hyperexcitation. It can also generate physical symptoms such as sleep distrubance, muscle aches and tension, digestive problems, skin eruptions and headaches. Fear , when it becomes a permanent state of mind can wear us out and make us sick.
The possibilities that we humans have to defend ourselves against a threat are not unlimited. It depends on the characteristics of our own circumsatance( situations in whch we will find ourselves hopelessly helpless) but also on the characteristic of the person who has to face them. The same event can be faced with very different gaurantees of success.
Homeopathy provides us with remedies capable of increasing our capacity to adapt to these disturbing internal circumstances and to be able to face life with greater and better resources.
ACONITUM is the remedy for people who live in a permanent state of maximum alert. They are agitated, nervous and impatient. They want to anticipate and to know everything in advance to be prepared and to be able to face any adversity. They live as if they were permanently in mortal danger. It is the great remedy to help with acute panic attacks.
Patients sensitive to CAUSTICUM have, on the other hand, the fearful perception that has more to do with the feeling that something bad is going to happen to them or their loved ones. They are usually people with a great sense of justice and dignity and end up being filled with negative feelings and phobias.
GELSEMIUM is another remedy related to fear, but this time the fear paralyzes people. They can be trembling or suffer from acute diarrhoea before any unusual event like a trip. It is a fear of anticipation, a fear of facing the situations of life.
People sensitive to ARSENICUM ALBUM feel like sheep among wolves. For them, the world is a hostile and threatening place and because of their sense of helplessness they develop the compensatory response of controlling reality absolutely. They become organized people, organized to mania, and detail-oriented meticulous. Anxious in general, and in particular about their health, they are also very dependent on others and tend to accumulate possessions with the idea to be better prepared for anything horrible that this life may hold for them.
In people sensitive to LYCOPODIUM, the dominating feelings are insecurity, the feeling of inferiority and fear of challenges and responsibilities. But to compensate for this perception of themselves and for no one to notice it, they usually create a compensatory image of pride and arrogance. “Tell me what you boast of and I‘ll tell you what you are missing,” could very well define the personality and behavior of these people. They are often harsh and critical with those who they feel may submit but submissive and complacent to those whom they feel to be powerful. Behind a facade of arrogance and haughtiness they hide their insecurity, fear and cowardice.
Fear makes our mind and body sick. It contracts us, it exhausts and debilitates us. Homeopathy provides us with remedies capable of increasing our capacity to adapt to these disturbing internal circumstances and to be able to face life with greater and better resources.
