The Aristolochiales are included in the Piperales in the Apg3 classification.
In the Plant theory the Aristolochiales are split off from Piperales and placed in Phase 7 of the Magnoliidae. Splitting does not affect the monophyly of both clades. There are two families in Aristolochiales, the Aristolochiaceae and Lactoridaceae.
Families and genera.
Aristolochiaceae: Aristolochia, Asarum, Euglypha, Heterotropa, Pararistolochia, Saruma, Thottea.
Lactoridaceae: Lactoris; unknown in homeopathy.
There is a strong mother theme in this family, an expression of the muriaticum quality. The bonding between mother and child is the key theme. They can be left alone as a child by their mother. There can be problems with pregnancy and labour. It can be that they cannot beget children as a woman due to infertility, miscarriages, lack of a husband or early death of children. It leads to feeling alone, left out. They can feel like an outsider being a childless woman.
The name Aristolochia expresses it well. It means good lochia, good drainage after the labour. It is the letting go of the rest and dirt of the pregnancy after labour without problems and becoming clean again.
The bonding theme becomes more general in life. There can be problems in relationships with friends, partners, family members. Marriage is often problematic, if it starts at all. There can be marriage failure from infertility or programmed sex. Death of a child is often the start of split and later divorce, the partners blaming each other or not being able to understand, console or comfort each other.
There is also a strong aspect of guilt, of feeling a bad person. They feel there must be something wrong with them that something terrible happens like the death of their child. It can lead to religious attitudes, withdrawing into the church with much praying. It can be felt as penitence. They can also feel bad because their parents have maltreated them as a child. There can be a story of being left alone, being beaten, diseases and death of parents.
They can become very sad, reserved, secluded in their own world, a withdrawal from life.

Dependent on others, needing them to find their way in life.
Need the support of others.

Not knowing how to cope with the world, to express themselves, to handle, where they stand.
