Nitricum acidum is a very well known remedy, therefore I won’t say much about it.
Exhaustion, apathy Enjoyment
Active, hurried Need for space, expansion
Lively, fresh, extroverted Going out
Aggression, fighting Congestion, explosive
Desire for unity Tension
From the group analysis we get as the essence of Nit-ac the feeling that they have to exhaust all possibilities of enjoyment, or the feeling that all possibilities have already been exhausted.
At a first glance this essence seems to be contrary to the generally accepted picture of Nit-ac, that of the unforgiving, resentful person, who goes through all sort of court cases in order to prove that he is right; the person who never forgives a wrong, who considers anyone who is not actively supporting him to be his enemy.
In practice, however, this picture has proved to be a little one-sided. It actually represents a later stage of the Nit-ac. situation. This is the stage at which they feel that all possibilities for enjoying life have been exhausted, that these chances have been taken away from them. This makes them feel resentful towards the person who has, in their eyes, been the cause of this. But they keep fighting for their opportunities, they don’t give up.
In the earlier stage, however, they don’t have this resentful side yet, because the opportunities for enjoyment are still there. But even here we already see a fighting spirit, a striving to get everything out of life that they possibly can. They can be very jolly people, who enjoy sharing the good things of life with others.
