Plants, Animals and Minerals
A New Way of Understanding Materia Medica

During the homeopathic interview, patients needing plant remedies wander from subject to subject, seemingly disorganized, incomplete, talking about themselves and others as well. Their dress is often flowery or connected with plants in some way. The patterns on the clothing are random, irregular, without geometry or structure. Clothing is aesthetic, colorful, soft and flowing, even for men. The cause of their problems is often a kind of shock or hurt, which can be physical or emotional. Plant people express their sensitivity in expressions like, "That affects me." "It hurts me." "I am sensitive to ..." "I can't stand it." "I am touched by...." They seem soft, emotional and easily hurt. Relations with other people may be difficult or too much for them, because of their sensitivity and their need to adapt to those around them. People may see them as too sensitive and moody, changing too abruptly or whimsical.

Plant dreams have scenes of plants or nature, music or art.

Dreams can be vivid or beautiful, and have a lot of emotional content.

All of the changes of the day and adaptations that had to be made may come out in their dreams.

Some common plant remedies include Pulsatilla, Staphysagria, Lycopodium, Colocynthis, Ignatia, Nux Vomica, Drosera, Agaricus, Aconite, Belladonna, China, Cannabis indica, Stramonium, Arnica, Ruta, and Rhus toxicodendron.

Now think of animals, from protozoa to elephants. Animals move around, looking for food, water, sex, a good place to sleep, warmth, and protection from the elements. Animals are social and hierarchical by nature, often with elaborate mating rituals. According to Sankaran, the main theme of animals is competition. They may compete for food, mates, territory, or superiority. Animals demonstrate the principle of survival of the fittest with tooth and claw, or by more subtle means, in humans, like making a sarcastic remark. Animals need to draw attention to themselves. They try to be attractive, beautiful, sexy and better than those around them. Animals have issues of attractiveness, and even the complaints that bring them to the homeopath often have to do with their beauty, the attractiveness of their skin or hair, their sexual functioning, weight and other issues which affect their competition with others. People who need animal remedies usually dress attractively, with clothes that are distinctive in their color or design. Jewelry will be worn to attract attention.

Animal people are animated, expressive and full of life. They are alert and quick to act and react. They make contact easily with other people. Their eyes are striking and attractive. They are aggressive, pushy and competitive, and may attack if provoked. Jealousy and envy are strong in animals. They compete for social position and will stop at nothing to be the best. The person may even move like animal or make growling, hissing, or scratching motions and sounds.Animal-like career choices are often adventurous, competitive and designed to show off their best attributes, or why their products or services are superior. Their handwriting looks striking, distinctive, sharp and aggressive.

Animals have issues of domination and being dominated. An animal who is not making it will have feelings of inferiority and worthlessness. In any competition there are winners and losers. Animals fear loss of power, mates and territory, isolation, neglect and rejection.
