Liliales - Spectrum of Homeopathy 01/2019

Problems with the groups

The current issue of SPECTRUM with the title “Lilies – Problems with the Group” is a kind of GPS for homeopaths. Functioning as a sort of global positioning system (GPS), SPECTRUM brings much-needed clarity to the Liliales order because the Lilies have certainly caused considerable terminological confusion, both in homeopathy and botany: Lilianae, Liliidae, Liliiflorae, Liliales, or Liliaceae? Moreover the Liliales as grasped in Jan Scholten’s modern APG classification contain fewer plant families than in the classical Cronquist taxonomy. The latter is preferred by Sankaran and Yakir, and includes the impressive bunch of remedies that our authors have put together. Jörg Wichmann‘s introduction attempts to cast some light on this chaos of order.

“Problems with the group” is indeed the central theme of the Liliales, which can easily be derived from Scholten’s group plant code of 633.6. The digits 633 indicate the third row of the periodic table, the Silica series, with its focus on relationships, families and groups. The final digit, phase 6, indicates the feeling of being on the edge of the group, not really belonging. With her case of Crocus sativus Deborah Collins presents a vivid example of working with Jan Scholten’s plant theory.

Via the common physical vital sensation of “being pressed from inside outwards,” Rajan Sankaran arrives at the same basic feeling of being excluded as does Jan Scholten via his plant theory. Michal Yakir presents the Liliales and their problems with the group in the context of plant evolution.  She describes in her article the relationship problems and the strong ego of the self-centered monocotyledons. 

This issue of SPECTRUM clarifies how the differing perspectives on the Liliales botanical order taken by Scholten, Sankaran, and Yakir supplement and deepen our homeopathic understanding of it. With a splendid collection of Lilies remedies, Jürgen Weiland illuminates their particular connection to the urogenital area. His marvelous plant photos make the current Liliales issue of SPECTRUM an exquisitely colorful treat.

Interesting but incomplete
Interesting articles but the issue should have been called "Sexual hormones" because of the whole endocrinology this is what it reffers to. And only the female part: fertility and other gynecological disorders. Where is the thyroid pathology, so widely spread? Where the so frequently encountered hyperprolactinemia?Where are some rare conditions as Addison's, growth hormones disturbances, the stress hormones, the overuse of cortisone etc? Does Homeopathy have a solution to them? Where's the organotherapy? read more ...

Good overview
This a good overview of Rheumatism. Would LOVE to see something on rheumatism that is more compelling from a medical standpoint. For example, it'd be great to see case reports that include blood markers, pictures, etc. The reason for me, is it's often hard with RA cases to determine just how deep the pathology is - labs often help illuminate the level of disease. Hopefully one day, we'll see more well documented cases. read more ...
