Berberis aquifolium

(Oregon Grape)

Syphilis is a deep and difficult miasm to treat. This is one of the most important remedies for these situations, if a plant remedy rather than an animal one is indicated. Intense pulsating headaches in the forehead—a two inch band around the head pulling tighter and tighter. Pain in joints of hands and lower back. Slower metabolism with incomplete digestion; all symptoms worse in the evening and at night.

KEYNOTES: Unhappiness and depression coming on suddenly; pimples, skin eruptions and scaly skin.

SANKARAN MENTALS: The combining of the Berberidaceae change and adaptability with the destruction and destructiveness that is characteristic of the deep and difficult syphillis miasm, gives us a person who is destroyed by sudden change. They simply lack any ability to adapt to new types of situations. Thus, marriage, the birth of a child, a job change, or a move to a new city can bring out the characteristics of the syphillis miasm (which is the worst and deepest of the earliest recognized pathologies).

MIASM: Syphillis

COMPARISONS: Sulphur, Psorinum, Arsenicum album, Hydrastis canadensis
