The psychological meaning of tetanus

by | May 24, 2022 | Infectious and pediatric diseases, Symptom Language

This article will decode the psychological meaning of tetanus according to the understanding of Antonie Peppler, the inventor of Creative Homeopathy, and her analysis of symptom language. Symptom language is a form of somatic communication—the “soma” respectively “body” expresses a conflict that the person is not aware of. Accordingly, we prepared a list of related homeopathic remedies that correspond to this mental conflict. The psychological meaning of tetanus is associated with desperate attachment to a specific goal that is pursued at all costs. We can find this connection in the alternative name of the disease—”lock jaws.”

Tetanus from a homeopathic perspective

For a tetanus patient, suffering and weakness must not become visible to the external world until the disease starts showing the internal struggle. The underlying goal is often based on willfulness and the idea of revenge, which is pursued to the bitter end in a “do-or-die” attitude. The condition is based on the urge of a human being to proclaim his or her own will/life even against all odds, without admitting weakness.

“Clinging tightly to what is possible.”


Tetanus/lock jaws

The own will is valued higher than the emotional realm—rigidity and cramping in feasibility ideas or fixed concepts. The tetanus patient is stuck in a tunnel vision. All lightness is lost. Everything becomes a stern automatism that wants to assert itself. The deeper psychological issue of a tetanus patient presents itself in the morose physical expression. It shows how he doggedly and engrossed tries to stifle a specific agenda that causes emotional suffering.

The psychological meaning of infectious diseases

Infectious diseases like tetanus, in general, refer to fundamental issues and beliefs that a person wants and must deal with. These are behavioral patterns brought along by the family, which can and should be overcome by living through those illnesses. This purpose also applies to childhood illnesses or pediatric diseases. They are indications of which life themes are still being judged and thus are still pathogenic.
