Cichorium intybus and its relatives protect their soft core under a tough outer shell
Using a series of cases, the author sketches the characteristic reaction patterns and typical themes of Cichorium intybus in children and adults. Defiant and combative behavior following existential traumas, such as attempted abortion or expulsion from the homeland also characterize the other remedies of the Cichorioideae, a sub-family of the Asteraceae. The color preference can provide important clues to this group.
