Cases from the practice

Case of a woman – ‘I feel hindered and attacked from all sides’

Amphimallon solstitiale

August 16, 2020



This woman came to me with severe pain in the neck and told me that the doctors have suggested her operation as the only way to cure her. She was afraid of operation and has tried homeopathy for 5 years with no significant improvement. So, this is the case:

  • Main complaint: Disc herniation, exostosis
  • There was a very strong wind and I got very worse. My neck hurt, the pain worsened and the MRI showed herniated discs, exostosis, distortion and pain in the arm, but it was due to the level of the disc herniation (it goes to the left and goes to the left arm).
  • What are the symptoms?
  • At first, I couldn’t brush my teeth, I was constantly roaring and the most desperate thing was that the drugs, the corticosteroid injections, didn’t help me at all.
  • Severe pain.
  • Tell me about your nature?
  • My problems are more psycho-emotional with my husband. Things there irritate me or there is no balance. He travels and when he’s not here I wake up at 4- 5 o’clock and I can’t sleep. This has been the case before.
  • Tell me more about this situation with your husband?
  • Maybe I am wrong in this case, because I once took Calcarea carbonica and I was very good; I didn’t get nervous and I trusted him a lot, otherwise I’m very j.

Slowly her nature is revealing to us.

  • Tell me about your nature as a child?
  • Very, very, very ambitious, just like there is no such ambitious child, first of all.
  • Very competitive, I made a lot of plans, I had a lot of ideas, my brain worked a lot, and now I’m duller. I cried a lot and now I’m more emotional. I can cry for something very minimal. And I’m very responsible, I have a sense of duty, I may not feel like it, but I try to please others, I can’t say no.
  • What differs you from other children?
  • I had a lot of fun, I loved company, guys, I often got out of the house to go to a disco. And for me, since I was a child, love is very important, the man I should be with, because since I have been with my husband during this time.
  • What was the most stressful situation in your life?
  • When friend of mine died.
  • What is the sensation in this situation, as if it is happening now?
  • As if everything is collapsing, the end of the world is coming. When I heard the news on the phone, it was as if I had fallen, my legs were cut off and I was in shock, you don’t know what’s going on, it’s as if something is happening outside of you.
  • It’s as if you’ve lost everything as emotions and it collapses.
  • That’s how you collapse (cutting off gesture).

The gesture doesn’t match with the words – SRP

  • Describe only the gesture (there is lot of energy)?
  • It’s as if a gesture is vertical and cuts, a gesture vertical and hurts.
  • Ok, go on.
  • That’s why I have this fear of cutting and then I was so scared and I have been afraid of cutting since I was a child.
  • What comes to your mind spontaneously when you say cut, forget about yourself.
  • It’s like cutting the stem of a plant (image, delusion).

Then she said spontaneously:

  • Another thing is restlessness, impatience, nervousness, and some things may happen that may not be so important, but as they push me and became as a chain reaction, one leads to the other and they become more and more pushed like a shift of layers.
  • I want to do a lot of things and suddenly everything collapses and a lot of things piled up for me and I hadn’t slept and I see that I’m nervous, but I can’t wait, can’t gather my parts. And the fact that I can’t handle it and it’s as if they’re pressing you and you don’t succeed.
  • That’s exactly how I feel my spine, that’s how I feel it loaded and collapsed.

Very interesting, she is talking with lot of energy and what is most important. Is that she linked the type of the pain in the spine with this ‘do a lot of things and suddenly everything collapses’. So, this is the center of the case, because here the local became general and linked with the main complain. So, we have to explore this sensation to the bottom. This is source language, but we still do not know the remedy.

  • Describe this words :’ do a lot of things and suddenly everything collapses’ out of the context?
  • When the things accumulate, they weigh you down and you fall, because you are no longer capable, you are not right. It’s as if you collapse down from above and end.
  • Ok, go on.
  • I can’t.
  • What dreams did you get?
  • I dream of my husband. Very often I cheat on him.
  • The feeling?
  • Pleasant, then in another dream he cheats on me and then the world is over, I’m very angry and I can’t believe it.
  • I’m cheating on him, and I’m very upset.
  • I fly many times in my sleep.
  • What environment do you feel best in?
  • At the sea.
  • Which dream can you say a little more about?
  • For the one with the delay and something constantly divert me and slows me down and it’s like I can’t move from things that bother me. Probably, I can’t move it, because something is always happening and distracting me.
  • What comes to mind spontaneously when you say distraction?
  • Suitcase and… and some things happen that bother me and slow me down.
  • Another word that comes to your mind?
  • Love is very important to me. Happy, there are no things that generally hinder you. Nothing hinders or distracts you (again a gesture like a cut). You do everything with ease because you are more hopeful, because you know that…. If it is not there, they attack you.

We now understand that the cutting actually is experienced like hindered, because it speaks of hindering, but she shows cutting.

  • What is the sensation to be hindered?
  • It is as if they are attacking you from all sides.
  • What do you see right now as you say this?
  • All the things that hinder me.
  • Tell me another word that comes to your mind spontaneously?

With this question, I aim to distract her from her personality and make her closer to the unconsciousness where the source vibration is hidden, because she is now at 5c level.

  • Sea, I love the sea very much. It works very strong, powerful, impactful, I like it to be calm and stormy and to dive into it
  • What is the sensation of diving into it?
  • Salty, I really like to dive all over, you feel protected.

Here she already speaks in the second person singular, which means that she detaches herself from the personality and moves towards the unconscious individuality.

  • Describe the word protected outside of you?
  • Nothing external can obstructs you.
  • Outside of you, forget about you?
  • That everything is fine and suddenly something swoop you and hinders you. You have to stop and pay attention to it first. You can’t keep doing your job until you fix it.
  • Describe this thing that hinders you and you have to pay attention to it?
  • It’s as if something is coming, flying and diverting me from my path. I have to stop and deal with this side thing, and it annoys me a lot.
  • Well done, go on!
  • As a fear that something might happen, that something would come suddenly and disturb my good rhythm.
  • What comes to your mind out of context when you say something to come suddenly and divert you from the path?
  • Like an annoying fly that irritates and disturbs me.
  • Tell me another word?
  • Something that doesn’t leave me alone, which is annoying, I still can’t go on, and I have to get rid of it if it’s a fly.
  • Another word?
  • +++ fried eggplant, allaminutes, fried zucchini, wine in the evening
  • I love to move, swim, go to the sea.
  • I easily despair (this points tubercular or syphilitic miasm).
  • How do you feel as you move?
  • More energetic. I’m always in a hurry.
  • The attitude towards animals?
  • I love kittens, dogs.
  • I don’t like black, hard bugs, there are some, they are called harvesters… It looks like a cockroach but it isn’t, it flies like a helicopter and blunts, it falls. As a child I had a very nasty situation, the room was full of such bugs and you can only hear them crashing into the walls and falling and it was very nasty. And I don’t like snakes.
  • I am very sensitive to this thing not harming me, as if something harmful will enter me, as if I do not believe in these corticosteroids.
  • I don’t want them to put something bad in me (gesture, toe).
  • All other animals love only these pests I don’t like.
  • Tell me a little bit more about pests?
  • Rodent, as if you are not contributing anything, no one has invited them, they come and spoil the rhythm of others.
  • Tell me about them?
  • Now I imagine a rat cutting a cable.

End of the case.

Prescription: Anphimallon solstitiale 30C, 3 doses


It was one of the most exciting experiences in my practice. We do not have any information about this remedy and I was so surprised to find that she needs harvester to get rid of the disease. The way she reached the source level was fabulous.

Source information

Harvesters are attracted to light and are most often seen at night around gardens and street lamps. Insects move fast, hit objects hard and startle citizens. A real scourge.


Amphimallon solstitiale, also known as the summer chafer or European june beetle, is a beetle similar to the cockchafer but much smaller, approximately 20 millimetres (0.79 in) in length. They are declining in numbers now, but where found they are often seen in large numbers. At dusk they actively fly around tree tops looking for a mate and can often be found drowning in pools of water the following morning. They are also attracted to light and come in through open, lit windows and fly around lamps, making quite a racket while bumping into lights. They are found throughout the Palearctic region, commonly seen from June to August, living in meadows, hedgerows, and gardens, and eating plants and tree foliage.

Follow up after a month:

She agreed to record this follow up, so this is what she shared:

This interview was very strange and unexpected. On the second day after the remedy, I felt very tired. I slept many hours, more than usual. At the 6th day, I had strong pain in the stomach and temperature. It took two days and then I felt better, my energy was higher, my desire for living, learning increased. I also got desire for sport. My pain was less. My improvement with the pain is 75 %. The pain is still there, but I can do much more things. I can give you an advice: ‘When you go to homeopathy interview, you have to be honest, exact and should go really deeper in yourself, because everything that appear on the surface is not the disease. Everything that you can say, can name it:’ I feel this, I feel that, I have this disease, this is not the reason, not the disease. The disease is hidden deep in ourself, so you should go further and deeper and if you manage to do this. Tis is the only way you can help the homeopath. So, for me, my experience was that I talked complete nonsenses. It was really something very strange, unconscious, but I think G found my remedy, because I feel much better and I am very happy.

Follow up after 7 months:

She is still fine. We repeated the remedy twice with excellent result after every repetition. Her pains in the neck and left arm completely gone and she is fine  at all levels.


A case of allergic cough, breast and lung cancer

Hello everyone, I continue to introduce you to the deeper levels of homeopathy through living practice. The case is abbreviated and doesn’t have as much detail and dialogue as during the workshops, but I am including some important points from the interview without which we would have missed the whole case.

So the case is from two months ago, November 2022, and it’s about an elderly woman, about 70 years old, who had breast cancer.  They did surgery and radiation therapy and the cancer was physically removed. In 2020, she gets an allergic cough and the CT scan shows lesions and scatters in her lungs. This shows that the disease has just moved from breast cancer to lung cancer. They offer her chemotherapy but she refuses and goes to a well known, foreign homeopath. The cancer is almost contained, there are only slightly elevated tumour markers of 59.24 with reference ranges below 30, but the lesions are gone. At the moment they only see something in the lung but don’t know what it is. A healer close to Vanga who has treated them with herbs and energy has advised them not to open it because it has sealed. What was bothering her was her emotional state and this cough, so we went down the thread to see where the center of the problem was.

The woman is acting very timid, like a child. She’s extremely sensitive, doesn’t tolerate criticism and cries about everything.

– List me her physical complaints?

– Cough.

– What are the symptoms of the cough?

– Something starts choking me, something presses in my chest. No air, my mouth is forever filling with saliva.

– What is the object that when I apply to my chest I will feel similar suffocation?

– Come on it’s not a rock, it’s a bag of flour or sand.

– Where did you first see a bag of flour or sand?

– In my home in the town of V…. when I was 10 years old.

The most interesting thing about that scene was a basement with barrels and bottles of wine and the smell of wine.

– What was the least important object in this scene?

– The toilet.

The most important thing worth noting here is that you described the wall of the toilet with denial: it’s not made of glass, it’s completely smooth.

– And what were the symptoms of cancer?

– My breast nipple was biting.

– Can I see this through your eyes?

– It’s pink, but it’s pushed in.

– Can I see anything pink?

– Pale pink. Like in a hole. It’s not a nipple, it’s not out, it’s like a boat, it’s not like a boat, it’s like a dimple.

– If I touch the nipple what will I feel?

– Pink, gra…. me, softened, something soft.but the nipple is stuck inside like in a hole.

What we are going to ask is very important here. Here she said lapsus (unspoken word) and there is the emphasis. The unconscious is sounding the alarm and we need to hear it and respond.

– What did you mean by this gra?

– Rough.

– How can I feel this rough with my fingertips?

– Like wrinkled skin, sagging wrinkles.

Makes sense, so what’s the next question?

– What’s something like that wrinkly thing you’ve seen in nature?

– Something very soft. Pause. Something like, like a softie.

– If I touch this crumb what will I feel?

– With a hole, a pucker.

Very interesting.

– Where did you first see a mackerel?

– In the same house where I saw the sack of flour.

Now we must check if the medicine is an object standing near the sack of flour or the mackerel. So I continued to examine the scene in more detail, but saw nothing to hold on to. There were no absurdities or denials, so we moved on to her childhood fears.

Fear of missing the train or plane, fear of something happening to her children, fear of a tight, confined space.

The last fear had the most intensity, so I asked about it first.

– When was the first time you were scared of a confined space as a child?

– Again in the first scene.

Apparently the drug is here, but we are not sure yet, we have to check the case from every possible angle, as according to the background method, the drug may near the object that seems obvious or else contain an element of the object that seems to be the source.

– Another fear?

– Of a ship, of the sea, makes my world dizzy looking down and many people like there.

– Tell us a little more about the fear of the sea?

– My husband and I were walking and when a boy pushed me off the bridge I fell into the sea and since then I’ve been even more afraid of it.

– What is the feeling in the fear?

– Just seeing the space of the sea and I’m scared, just seeing it the smooth sea kind of..

– Like what?

– Scary.

– What do you see?

– Like glassy, I imagine like a glass and I don’t like going to the beach in general.

– Where did you live then?

– Same house again.

Now we see very beautifully how fear confirms that the cure is in the first scene.

– Do you have dreams?

– I don’t remember.

– Give yourself time……

– I remember 3 dreams. One was that I was already married and a woman threw a black towel at me.

We’re not asking what it felt like here, we’re asking, “Where have you seen such a black towel?

– In the apartment in the same city they moved to.

Since this is again in the same town, albeit in a different location, it again confirms that the drug is in the first scene. The second

Since this is again in the same city, albeit in a different location, it again confirms that the cure is in the first scene. Her second dream was about a woman asking her if she had given birth, and she didn’t actually think of a third. We then moved on to the food.

– What foods did you dislike as a child?

– Any foods I liked…

Eventually we got to cucumbers and cake.

– Describe cucumber with the 5 senses?

In sum, after about 10 minutes of asking various questions about the cucumber, what came out was this: rough, not rough; firmer, and the tomato is softer.

Once we got to the cake, however, things took on a completely different colour. Her sense of the cake was this: round, pink. Very interesting, again pink like the nipple of her breast.

– If I touched her?

– Soft.

– To taste?

– Very sweet.

– What do you think of when you say sweet?

– I immediately think of sugar, hah.

– How does it look?

– White, crunchy, sweet.

– How do you see its shape?

I ask questions that seem obvious and silly, but the point is to stay in the unconscious that way.

– Well, it depends on the sugar, the powdered sugar is fine like flour, the other is grainy how it looks. How do you say on h….. naaa, well coarse sugar, hah how.

What do we have here? Again, grain lapsus and strangely, even absurdly, grain sugar. Have you seen sugar on beans? How do we go from here to there? We won’t ask about the grain because it’s not something that comes from a scene. The two most important things that came out of the description of the cake were: the pink and the dust. Therefore, the next question would be :

– What thing pink and powdered did you see first in your childhood?

– Starch.

– Other?

– My, I don’t know, ….melby. He looks timidly. And there are powdered creams, vanilla red, white.

Here I want to encourage patients that when they are unsure of their words, not to worry, but to say what comes to mind first. When they start thinking, logic gets involved and confusion happens, and so by detecting the extract from the five areas, I will judge what is wrong and what is right. The most interesting part of the description of the 5 sense powder cream was the smell:

– What is the smell?

– To a mild.

It’s weird and therefore valuable. We ask for the smell, and it gives the consistency.

– What will I smell when I touch this softness?

– It’s like flour and it smells like vanilla.

So far so great, but still, let’s go back to the main complaint to complete the cycle.

– Describe the cough symptoms to me again?

– It comes on either from smells, I just feel something pushing me to cough. I choke and struggle not to die.

– What is it that is making you tight and stopping your breath?

– Well, it’s like I’ve got something on the inside, is my windpipe getting blocked?

– What’s something inside?

– Like a ball?

– Can I feel it? How big is it?

He shows with his hands as big as the opening of his throat.

– Color?

– Pink.

Wow, that’s beautiful. Pink again and what’s pink to her? The starch. What’s starch made of? Flour.

– What’s the other coughing sensation?

– Heaviness.

– What is the object that when I put it on I will feel heaviness?

– A bag of money tied with a rope.

– Shall I see it?

– Again, the same as the sack of flour.

– Is it grey, is it beige, is it rough?

– What is it that if I touch will give me a rough feeling?

– Sand.


Sensitive to criticism. Hard to refuse, can’t say no. Takes everything very personally. One word to her and she’s already thinking about that word all day.

When I brought it back and the cancer symptoms once again, what I came to in probing was:

“It’s like making a well for flour or a pie.”

So she got Triticum vulgare (wheat) 200C and responded very well.



From the chief complaint, the cough: a bag of flour or sand

From the symptoms of breast cancer: mecca

From the cake: grain, sugar, flour

When we came back to the cough: pink and sack same as the flour sack; cork ( we use cork stoppers to close the wine bottles that stand near the flour sacks in the first scene).

When we come back to the symptoms of cancer:” It’s like making a well for flour or a pie.”


Sugar ( Saccharum) and Triticum (wheat) belong to the Fam. Poaceae (monocotyledonous plants).  They have no self-esteem, being evolutionarily less developed than the dioecious.

We could be mistaken and spell out . Silicea because of the sand, sandbag, glassy sea, but she described the sea as smooth as glass not because the medicine is glass, i.e. Silicea, but because the sugar is in crystals which resemble glass. Patients also sometimes describe sources of the same family, but the remedy is not Saccharum for many reasons which I will not now discuss.

She was prescribed Natrium muriaticum for a year, which acted to some extent, but mainly on the physical level and not thoroughly. Her tumor markers are slightly elevated, her cough persists and won’t go away from anything, she is emotionally very unstable. Natrium muriaticum belongs to row 3, first column of the Periodic Table of Minerals and its evolutionary development corresponds to a child, it needs care and support like the drugs of the family. Poaceae, but with it sadness is leading, not fear and timidity. Yes, it holds back emotions, does not show them, but in a plant way (reacts to every thing with crying, fear or humiliation). This is the feeling of the plant kingdom: sensitivity and reactivity. I haven’t dwelt on her mental picture, but we saw clearly that flour and sugar were the center of the case.

And so, her chronic cough disappeared, she began to sleep better. She is still timid, but her sensitivity to criticism is weaker. The case continues, but so far she is doing very well, she is a little more stable mentally. It will take her at least about 2-3 years to fully stabilize emotionally, but the important thing is that we have reached the center of the case and the recovery process is going steadily.
