The psychology of Nux vomica

Actual Life Situation

The strategy of distraction. Hiding, covering up his real feelings through over-activity. It is embarrassing to show his feelings. Showing feelings could cause new hurt.

Nux vomica Message

“Become peaceful and stand behind your feelings!”


The message of Nux vomica

Condition After Taking the Remedy (high potency)

After Nux vomica the suppressed feelings of the personality become evident, for example, existential fear (ars), grief (ign), anger (bell, stram), defiance (cham), etc. Something happens to create a wound (op, plat) and this is the reason that the personality can no longer stand behind its own values (iris).

“Hiding his real feelings through over-activity.”
