Message of Colocynthis

Condition After Taking Colocynthis (high potency)

After Colocynthis it becomes evident that the personality is afraid of further hurt. The emotional or also physical hurts (caust, staph, op, camph) from which the personality would like to protect itself (gal-ac) can now be perceived. It obviously feels itself defenseless alone, but doesn’t dare to fight for itself (mag-c) and acts instead as a helper (cocc, caust) for others.

“Gut-level anger from conforming and suppression of irritation.”
