Gold Series – the Sixth Row of the Periodic Table
SPECTRUM‘s 25th anniversary edition will glitter in gold! The sixth row, known as the Gold series, represents the peak of the developmental path of the periodic table, according to Jan Scholten. It is about power and the grave burden of responsibility. Yet far from everything that glitters there is gold. Loneliness, paranoia, and melancholia to the point of suicide, are familiar from the homeopathic remedies of this row, as well as the most severe physical pathology. Platinum, Aurum, Mercurius, and Plumbum are classical representatives of the syphilitic miasm. Polonium and Astatinum signal the gradual transition to the radioactive decay of the Actinides.
Apart from Barium, the elements before Platinum – on the way to the peak of power – are scarcely known to homeopathy. We present numerous case histories from renowned authors showing how it is possible to use the themes of the stages of the Gold series to discover and successfully prescribe remedies such as Tantalum, Wolfram, Rhenium, and Iridium. The goal of this chapter of our modern materia medica is also to delve deeper into the practical use of the periodic table using the example of the Gold series.
