Little D, 7 years, was brought to me for a rash on his face. It was not bothering him necessarily but it was not so attractive and his mother was concerned that it would spread, especially as his father had a similar looking rash that was over a large part of his body.
D immediately became shy as he entered the room, I could tell he wanted to engage put was just not sure about himself. He managed to be coaxed away from behind his mothers leg with questions about play time and his friends at school.
His mother informed me of other main observations/symptoms:
Perfectionism and high intellect
Anxiety and worry about others
Picking at his lips
Feels bad after exercise
He was born with jaundice
As I enquired about his favourite foods, he started to warm up as described his love of ice cream, pizza, raw vegetables and warm drinks.
After some time his mother left the consultation room to take a phone call, so D and I were left alone for me to further discover his fun and charismatic nature.
He went into different characters and used different props to assist him. It was interesting to observe that he would be outgoing for a while then use something to disguise his face to hide.
Eventually when his mother returned he stated that he was ready to go…. he had fizzled out.
D’s nature reminded me very much of the remedy Phosphorous. People with this nature are very sensitive to their environment and they dislike disharmony. They can be uncertain of their identity and and model themselves on those around them. Like the element they shine brightly for some time and then fizzle out. They are also prone to skin and liver issues.
Result: After a few weeks the rash disappeared and his mother was pleased.
3 months later the rash reappeared.
Remedy was repeated and waiting for further results. It was advised to avoid sugar as it seems this is a fungal rash that is common in humid environments.
