Kali arsenicosum is a remedy of the mineral kingdom and of the cancer miasm. The main feeling of Kali arsenicosum is that the people whose support the patient seeks cannot be trusted – they could even rob him. Like all Kali remedies, he seeks the support of the family or the group. Without them he is weak and dependent. Yet he has doubts as to whether this same family or group is trustworthy.
He needs his family, and its harmony and integrity become his chief concern. So , he becomes caring for the family and supports them and takes good care of them. He seems confident and independent. This is the coped up stage. But the Kali arsenicosum person can be anxious too, so anxious that he can become almost crazy with anxiety.
He is very edgy, and the slightest noise will shake him up. He talks, even looks excited, crazy. He needs the support of his family and yet he cannot trust them. He feels as if his family or group is out to cheat him, to rob him. He becomes extremely suspicious.
His extreme anxiety makes him highly organized, fastidious, careful and cautious. He is extremely anxious about his health too. So anxious that he cannot trust even his physician. He avoids people as far as possible. He feels lonely and isolated because he cannot trust anyone.
If his family members differ in opinion or views, he is upset and feels he can’t trust them. He feels: “I have done so much for them, how can they do this to me?” But at the same time, he feels weak and needs their support, he feels he cannot be alone. He becomes quarrelsome with his family. In the failed state, he becomes desperate to the point of suicide. Kali arsenicosum may have dreams of being pursued.
For a case of Kali arsenicosum the reader can refer to my book “The Substance of Homoeopathy”.
