Restoring Health After Myocardial Infarction with Aurum Metallicum Using the Tetractys Model

Written by Mirjana Zivanov

Using her Tetractys method, Dr. Mirjana Zivanov treats a man who is recovering from a myocardial infarction.


I’ve had the heart attack four months ago. A crushing chest pain woke me up at night, so we went to the hospital. I’ve had chest pain two days before that. I had urgent coronary angiography followed by placing three coronary stents. Anxiousness troubles me. I’m burdened by my work. I work with cooling devices. It’s a responsible job. Old machines, and you’re responsible if something happens. I’ve got the offer by my director to become a compressionist. I can’t accept it. Perhaps, I see a problem where there’s no actual problem, I don’t know. I used to be confident, but I’m losing it. I used to drink a lot after the bombardment in 1999, and I stopped. When I was mobilised, we used to drink a lot. It wasn’t ok for me, I was struck by it afterwards. Now, I got drunk, let’s say, once a month.

I can’t sleep at night, a kind of anxiety. My friends don’t suit me. Now, I take 1.5 mg of Bromazepam three times a day. I used to take antidepressants for a month. I am constantly worried. It is in my nature to be worried. It constantly oscillates, sometimes, I am balanced, normal, good, and, sometimes, I even become aggressive. When I am good, I like to have fun, socialise, not a big circle of people, mostly my friends from work. There are big oscillations, some small things make it start, I can’t wait, anxiety, my look is aggressive, I am angry, shout, swear…

Now, I’m also afraid of public performance, it drives me crazy. I used to speak well, I used to be a president. I am exceptionally appreciated at my work, because of my expertise. I don’t want to emphasise it, but it is what people say, they’ve got confidence in me and have a good opinion about me. I’m capable of solving an issue within a short time period. I’ve usually got quick solutions. I educate juniors. I strive to achieve perfection. For example, to make the distillation of brandy perfect. It gets perfect, if I stand there, it must be so. I used to develop myself a lot; I read a lot of books, many of them philosophical. Now, I reluctantly go to work, and I used to like it. I’m afraid that something will happen, because the systems are old, there’s no reconstruction, only as necessary. Ammonia is a toxic gas, it’s dangerous.

At work I have to move between hot and freezing spaces all the time, and now, because of my heart condition, I can’t do it, so I won’t be able to work anymore…I’ve changed many cars, nothing makes me happy. I used to like celebrations, now monotony. I want to do this job till I’m retired, which means 7 more years, so that my daughters are capable of being on their own.

I get really sad, I tried to commit suicide three times…

The patient presented an Aurum metallicum picture based on:

– heart disease, myocardial infraction

– does a responsible job (Sphere Attraction-Leadership)

– likes alcohol, used to drink a lot during the bombardment, now once a month (Sphere Addiction, Offensive aggression)

– anxieties and mood explosions, reaching aggressiveness – angry, shouts, swears (Sphere Addiction, Offensive aggression), and when he is balanced, he is good, he likes socialising and having fun. (Sphere Exhilaration with empathy)

– Used to be the speaker, president, appreciated at work, exceptional expertise (Sphere Attraction-Leadership)

– educates juniors (Sphere Attraction-Leadership)

– strives to perfection, e.g. to make brandy distillation perfect (Sphere Control and Contempt)

– read many books, especially philosophical

– changed many cars, but it does not make him happy (Sphere Addiction, Offensive aggression)

– gets very sad, tried to commit suicide as many as three times (Sphere Sadness)

– the most important thing for him is to do his job at any cost, until he is retired, high goals (Sphere Attraction-Leadership)

During the classic case taking, we got the Spheres of the conscious part of the Tetractys, whereas the Matrix method is to be used for getting the subconscious part. For an experienced homeopath, in cases where the patient states many Spheres of the conscious part of the Tetractys, it’s not necessery to do the first phase of the Matrix method. This case nicely illustrates that the Tetractys model may be efficiently used with classic case taking, even without all the other phases of the Matrix method.

The patient has also stated the Primes for Aurum metallicum: Happiness – Sadness, which may be easily used by a homeopath who is knowledgeable about the Tetractys of remedies.

Control therapy after five days


On the first day after taking the remedy, I had no difficulties, I slept well, and I took no Bromazepam. I took no other medicines, because we agreed to that, and I came to you to get cured, and to take no more allopathic medicines, which I do not like so much.  On the second day after taking the remedy, a concert was taking place near our home, and there was a lot of noise and chaos, so, I slept lousily. On the third day, I was anxious, uncontrolled, and in the afternoon, I had a headache, it was aching, like before when I was younger. At that time, I used to take whole lot of caffetins. Now, the headache lasted around 1-2 hours, not as strong as before, but the same feeling.

On the fourth day, I was overwhelmed with the anxiety, beats in my stomach, as if my heart was there, leading to the negative thoughts, each attack phase lasted for 15-20 minutes. On 1-10 scale, the anxiety was 8 on that day.

Yesterday, on the fifth day, it was weaker… I have the fear of driving, because, what if it strikes me. I am annoyed by crowds. Allergy occurred on my left upper arm. I was sweltering occasionally.

Since the very first day after taking the remedy, my face is completely different, the figure of my face is different, it was first noticed by my wife, afterwards by my daughters…


The patient slept well after the homeopathic remedy even though he did not take Bromazepam or other allopathic medicines. On the third day after the remedy, his old sufferings occurred in the form of anxiety and headache. His headache was the same as when he was younger, when he used to take a plenty of Caffetins. Now, after the homeopathic remedy, his headache lasted for only 1-2 hours, much shorter than before, and the intensity was also lower. He got the allergy on his left upper arm, which is also one of the old symptoms which returned. After taking the remedy, even his face changed, which was noticed by his wife and daughters.

Control therapy after 10 days


I smile like I used to do!  On the first day after taking the remedy, I was in an excellent mood and I can’t remember that I was so fine! I read a book for 3 hours! And I could not do so for years, because of my anxiety, and nothing at all in the past 6 months, not even newspapers.  On the first day, I got sleepy around noon and I laid down, fell asleep, and woke up at 5 p.m., which has never happened to me. I really had a good sleep and rest.

The first night was strange, as I had a dream of conversation with someone, about 3 issues, how my sister is, who is, actually, very ill, and I got the answer that she would be cured, then, about me not being potent, and that I should be on my own. Then, as if I told myself that I would not have any more negative thoughts. There was almost no anxiety. What used to be, is now 1-2 on the 1-10 scale. My lips slightly become numb, and feeble hands, weakness, as if they’d fall…Clumsiness, heavy fingers for writing, I’ve got no control…I was at the medical check, the results are fantastic, my blood test is excellent, heart echo is great!

I feel fine. I don’t have the pain in my chest as before. I’m happy, I’m not anxious, or in a bad mood like before. I’m more settled at work, I worry less about everything… I changed the department, so there are no more night shifts…I still do not take any allopathic medicines. Only what I get from you, the homeopathic remedy…

I’m quite a different man now!


Immediately after day one, the patient felt well, he was in an excellent mood. He could even read a book for three hours, indicating his better mental condition and concentration. He slept a lot on the first day, because, after the remedy, his organism needed a rest for the purpose of clearing and regeneration. On the first night after the remedy, some issues from his sub-consciousness, which used to bother him, opened up. Among all, the issue of being alone, which is the keynote for Aurum metallicum. Perhaps, Aurum could best be symbolically presented in the character of a lone wolf. Due to the enhancement of his vital force and mental condition, he makes the decision that he will not have negative thoughts. No more anxiety. The heart disorder was transferred to his hands, thus, he now feels weakness, feebleness, and clumsiness in his hands – but the heart is much better which is shown by the excellent results of the blood test and the heart echo. Most importantly, he feels fine, he has no more pain in his chest as before – another clear indicator that the disorder has been transferred to a more superficial level, hand muscles, as well as from the centre towards the periphery (Herring’s Law).
