The psychological meaning of tuberculosis

by | May 25, 2022 | Infectious and pediatric diseases, Symptom Language

This treatise will translate the psychological meaning of tuberculosis according to the understanding of Antonie Peppler, the inventor of Creative Homeopathy, and her analysis of symptom language. From her perspective, “symptom language” is a form of somatic communication—the “soma” respectively the “physical body” expresses an inner quarrel that the person is not aware of. Accordingly, we crafted a list of related homeopathic remedies that harmonize this mental conflict. The basic psychological meaning of tuberculosis is associated with escapism into illusions.

Tuberculosis from a homeopathic perspective

The urge to idealize a structure or paradigm is often taken over from family socialization based on their psychological imprints and labeled as being right for oneself. The tuberculosis patient lacks individualization, and his uniqueness must take a back seat to the adopted structure. The flight or escape from reality, which is perceived as hard and almost unbearable, seems the only option. Therefore, the person prefers to surrender instead of taking personal responsibility because he expects possible strong resistance from his social context.

“The escape into illusion”


The illusion is preferred over an unpleasant reality. The tuberculosis patient takes refuge in an illusionary world and dreams up an artificial existence by which responsibility and individuality are unconsciously rejected. Escape and resignation from reality, perceived as hard, seems easier than taking personal responsibility and possible repercussions from stepping out of the line. All negativity and aggression are rejected and declared “non-existent.” Due to the one-sided polarization, the neglected pole becomes active in the unconscious and expresses itself as a disease, preferably tuberculosis. If this is suppressed due to vaccination, the psychological conflict will “communicate” differently.

Psychological Meaning of infectious diseases

Infectious diseases like tuberculosis generally refer to fundamental subjects and beliefs that a person wants and must deal with. These are behavioral conventions 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 expressions of which life themes could still be judged and thus are still pathogenic.
