Psychology of Dulcamara

Dulcamara Life Situation

The individual resonating with Dulcamara often believes that uuthority figures may not be questioned or criticized. He lives in a “Wet-cold” life situation. His feeling for life is characterized by: “something isn’t right,” but the person not being allowed to question it without putting one’s support system in danger.

Remedy Message of Dulcamara (high potency)

“Question the situation and see the possibility of defending yourself or living your own life!”


Message of Dulcamara

Condition After Taking the Remedy (high potency)

After Dulcamara, it becomes evident that the personality is beginning to question something dominating in its surroundings. It could be a dominating person or a retarding situation. Because of this dominance, it finds itself in a frustrating situation that nonetheless gives it security. The lack of a strong personality (cupr), an inner center (caps), and inner certainty call for support. One’s own personal structure needs to be recognized and stabilized (merc, merc-s) and more importance is given to one’s needs (kali-c, kali-s).

“Authority figures may not be questioned.”
