In this article, we will decrypt the psychological meaning of chickenpox according to the interpretation of Antonie Peppler, the inventor of Creative Homeopathy, and her study on symptom language. From her stance, “symptom language” is a form of somatic communication—the “soma” respectively, the “material body” communicates an internal conflict that the person is not aware of. Accordingly, we composed a list of corresponding homeopathic remedies that adjust this disharmony. The critical psychological meaning of chickenpox is associated with the belief that life is a constant struggle.
Chickenpox from a homeopathic perspective
The chickenpox patient upholds the view (certainly also held by other family members) that life brings only hurt and suffering. The individual must overcome this conviction. The personality needs to learn to approach life as a challenge that can bring great fun and recognition to its accomplishment, although not always easy. This process is about “grounding,” the willingness to accept life within the physical matter. The person (finally) says “yes” to life. Many things are now better accepted. One allows self-respect and is ready to ground oneself.
“Life is a struggle”
A chickenpox infection can also be associated with only a sparse rash. Physicians then speak of the disease as “not really breaking through.” Then the will to implement is present, but the implementation itself still fails. This “not yet being complete with oneself” can trigger meningitis, the “wanting to be on the arm,” the wanting to be taken care of, as a consequence, as well as lead to encapsulation of the subject. Thus, this provides the breeding ground for shingles suffering due to missing transformation towards their higher self.

Psychological Meaning of infectious diseases
Infectious diseases like chickenpox, in general, refer to fundamental subjects and beliefs that a person wants and must deal with. These are behavioral routines brought along by the family, which can and should be overcome by living through those illnesses. This implication also applies to childhood illnesses or pediatric diseases. They indicate that life topics are still emotionally judged and thus are pathogenic.
