Neodymium sulphuricum in 10 cases
In this article, Neodymium sulphuricum will be discussed as an example of one of the Lanthanides. This remedy is frequently needed in our culture. Neodymium as such is the most prescribed Lanthanide in our practice. This has to do with the fact that our culture demands that people prove themselves. Situations are stressful, work has to be done fast, and people are frequently subjected to new challenges. The idea of calmly doing your job for many years has become a rarity. These qualities of ‘challenge’ and ‘proving’ are found in stage 6, where we find the Lanthanide, Neodymium. Neodymium sulphuricum is often indicated for women. In our present culture, women are gaining their freedom but many of them still have to fight for it in their intimate relationships. This is one of the basic themes of Neodymium sulphuricum: they have to prove their autonomy in marriage, they have to fight for their freedom in relationships. The remedy is really a remedy for the women’s liberation movement. The following 10 cases show different aspects of Neodymium sulphuricum. In many of them, we will see the theme of women fighting for their autonomy and independence, in marriage and love affairs.
In this case, we see the theme of fighting (Stage 6) for her freedom and against limitation (Lanthanides) in her marriage (Sulphur). The Lanthanide themes are also found in being a homeopath, holistic, individual aspects, and the need for independence and freedom.
The Lanthanide theme is seen here in the desire to go her own way and to not be forced. The theme of being forced was triggered by her boyfriend, which indicates Sulphur. Stage 6 can be seen in her desire for adventures and challenges. The burning pain, the acne and diarrhea confirm Sulphur. The amenorrhea from contraceptives and a hormonal imbalance, confirm the Lanthanides.
The aversion to committing herself or losing her freedom points to the Lanthanides. It is connected with boyfriends and partners, which indicates Sulphur. The desire to prove that it will still work is an indication for Stage 6. Hormonal problems, such as amenorrhea in this case, are also an aspect of the Lanthanides. The anorexia is also an aspect of Lanthanides: it is the desire for control, an obsessive compulsive disorder.
Stage 6 is obvious in his desire to prove himself. Three previously prescribed Neodymium were palliating but not curative. The Lanthanides are indicated by the arthritis, which in 70% of cases is auto-immune. It can also be seen in his desire to work independently and his desire to keep things under control.In this case, I struggled a long time to get the right remedy. I gave him Neodymium nitricum, Neodymium oxydatum, Neodymium fluoratum, Praseodymium fluoratum and Samarium fluoratum, all with palliative effects. It is only when he spoke about his marriage problems more clearly that the sulphuricum aspect became evident – previously he spoke in a casual way about his marriage situation.
The ankylosing spondilosis, as an auto-immune disease, is an indication for Lanthanides. The disease started after an unhappy love affair, indicating Sulphur. The way she handled the situation was like a forcing: even when he clearly was not in love and had other affairs, she still tried to keep the relation going. This ‘forcing’ aspect is typical of Stage 6.
The polymyalgia rheumatica, as an auto-immune disease, is an indication for Lanthanides. For many years, she tried to prove that she was ‘normal’ by being married. Proving oneself is Stage 6; in the marriage, indicates the Sulphur aspect. The desire to be independent and autonomously is typical for Lanthanides, as is her work in healing massage. Waking at 5 a.m. fits Sulphur.
He is always looking for challenges, putting himself to the test, which is Stage 6. He is doing things for the greater cause, to make the world better: a Gold series and Lanthanides quality. Since he was 6 years old, he feels bound by nothing, again a Lanthanides theme, but he still wants to be seen as social and warm, which indicates Sulphur.
Here again, we see a woman fighting against her husband for her freedom: Neodymium sulphuriucm, or more generally a Lanthanide sulphuricum. The ulcerative colitis is an auto immune disease, a Lanthanide aspect. ‘Deep contact’ fits Lanthanides too, the deep aspect. The ‘fight’ fits stage 6. It could also be Stage 8 or 12, but it is definitely on the left side of the periodic table because she has not yet reached her goal. A confirmation for Stage 6 is her mischievous quality in her youth.
She felt encaged in her marriage. ‘Encaged’ points to Lanthanides; ‘in her marriage’ indicates Sulphur. The ‘fighting her way out’ and ‘getting into freedom’ is an indication for Stage 6. The heart problems and palpitations fit Sulphur.
She does not continue relationships when they become official because then she would not be free. ‘Not free’ is a sign of Lanthanides, ‘in a relationship’ points to Sulphur. One could think of Stage 4 in this case because she stops when the relationship becomes official. ‘Official’ is a concept of Stage 4, but even though she has relationships that she does not want to offialise, she continues a few steps further in the relationship. It is more like Stage 6, which we also see in bold behaviour. Bold is a typical aspect of Stage 6. She goes against authority (Lanthanides) on purpose, as if to prove her autonomy.
Nine out of the ten cases are women. I think this is not due to the remedy as such, but to our culture. Men have already been independent for a long time in our culture. For women, however, there can still be the need to fight for their autonomy and independence, in relationships and marriage.
What has not been shown in this article is the type of personality of Neodymium sulphuricum. They possess an inner strength. They can even give the impression that they are quite sure of themselves. They have a tendency to hide their insecurity behind an image of boldness and over-confidence. They often have a boyish quality. Lanthanides in general have an androgynous quality, so women tend to look a bit more masculine and they tend to look young.
