With the Piperaceae, the sensation of boredom and suffering contrast with the desire for enjoyment and distraction.
The Piperaceae show great sensitivity to physical pain, suffering, and boredom – this combination is especially typical for these remedies. Monotony and routine dull the senses, leading to a joyless life. To restore balance and achieve distraction, these people seek pleasure in all kinds of activities. Entertainment puts the spice back into life, just as pepper can spice up dull food.
