Pinus contorta helps a man suffering from despair and angst to become aware of his own identity
The impending breakdown of his marriage brings the patient to the brink of a life-threatening crisis. The feeling that his existence is only justified when he is of use to others contrasts with the sense of being alone and expelled, crashing down into a great void and disintegrating. The author uses the vital sensation method to identify the little-known remedy Pinus contorta from the Conifer group, which he can then confirm in the repertory.
