Homeopathy and the integration of feelings -3-

de David Quinn
The miasm of sycosis has historically had as its most horrible manifestation the venereal disease gonorrhoea.
The disposition of sycosis is that of being ‘uncertain’ how be oneself. This is best expressed in the singular symptom of Medorrhinum.

‘Ideas many, uncertain in execution, but persistent’ (Dr Chawla)

With Medorrhinum it is this feeling being expressed in the following rubrics:
Fear lest he should say something wrong.
Hurry, always accomplishes nothing.
Time passes slowly, appears longer.

Postponing everything to the next day. (Dr Sangeeta Chawla)

And from S R Phatak’s materia medica, Tells things over and over again

Didier Grandgeorge writes of Medorrhinum "constantly projecting into the future, ruining the present…Medorrinhum is a constant planner". Herbert Roberts (cited in Catherine Coulter) "does not trust himself so goes over the same matter again and again".
George Vithoulkas writes "They seem to not know what they want".

We can see this trait of uncertainty in all the remedies well known for their affinity of taking form in sycosis.

In Pulsatilla there is:
Discouraged morning bed, in irresolution with
Express herself, cannot
Weeping answering a question, at
Chaotic confused behaviour
Confusion of mind loses his way in well known streets
Desires indefinite, this and that
Fear misfortune, of
Forgetful words while speaking, word hunting
Irresolution indecision

With Thuja there is:
Ailments from anticipation, foreboding
Chaotic confused behaviour
Concentration difficult
Confusion of mind, loses his way in well known streets
Ideas wander
Inconstancy of thoughts
Irresolution, indecision
Speech confused
finish sentence, cannot
Thoughts vanishing
speaking, while

Natrum Sulphuricum has
Anxiety, morning
Confusion of mind, morning
Succeeds, never
Wildness. (Dr Chawla)

Sooner or later in sycosis something can come that is very much a reaction to this burden of uncertainty. As is described in the materia medica the person begins to develop fixed notions or ‘fixed ideas’ about things to offset their discomfort. They begin to cover-up their uncertainty and we find a completely different and very opposite set of traits running through the same states.

Things like
Ideas fixed
Religious fanaticism

In sycosis the person can go from being adventurous, someone very much embracing the experience of uncertainty, to the opposite pole of becoming fixed and rigid about things.
Catherine Coulter is perhaps describing the uncertainty/certainty dynamic of sycosis where she writes “Medorrhinum must act out a situation before it is credible or even comprehensible to him; knowledge is born of action or must first be experienced in action”.
