Danièle Joulin: Death And The Devil
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.
