Sexual abuse within the family and the perceived inability to protect one’s child
This case exemplifies the progress of longterm treatment with an acute plant remedy followed by a deeply acting mineral remedy. The patient‘s ostosclerosis is substantially relieved by Mandragora but she also has a profound fear of being abandoned, originating in childhood. The reaction to the severe acute trauma leads to a deep-acting remedy from the Lanthanides. The author finds the required remedies using both Sankaran‘s sensation method and Scholten‘s group analysis.
