Spiders and Scorpions - Spectrum of Homeopathy 02/2020
Deborah Collins: Family hell
The author uses three case histories to show the special connection between spider remedies and sexuality. The two female patients (sisters) find themselves in a state of constant unrest and alert with trembling and vertigo, following a childhood blighted by parental violence and sexual abuse. The sisters’
physical reaction – trembling all over the body and twitching, as if attempting to flee a (sexual) attack – points to Mygale lasiodora. The precise prescription of the spider remedy for the male patient is also made via the physical symptoms – the illness picture of labyrinthitis with extreme acoustic sensitivity points in his case to Theridion.
