Michal Yakir is originally a botanist and has been enthusiastically working for more than 20 years on the homeopathic themes of the plant remedies. The result is a botanical system based on Cronquist (the pre-genetic system before the introduction of the APG system of taxonomy). Her system defines the homeopathically relevant
themes of botanical groups, which also makes it possible to prescribe relatively unknown remedies. In this contribution she presents an overview of her ideas.
Using a table with six columns, she distinguishes six major groups to which she assigns particular themes. From left to right, the columns depict the development of the individual ego, from complete oneness with the mother through to separation and egocentricity. Each group corresponds to a particular feeling, such as being right at the beginning, just being born: Magnoliidae, with a state of confusion, naivety and instability. As Michal Yakir describes the significance of the columns, we can see that the development of the plants reflects not only individual development of the ego, but also the development of human history.
It is hugely rewarding and interesting to learn about this fascinating plant system.
