Homeopathy and Minerals
Chlorum is a remedy that is hardly known. Boericke (1927,page 199) and Clarke (1985, Part 1, page 505) only give a few physical symptoms, with the keynote of spasm of the glottis. Another keynote is the dyspnoea, worse on expiration.
Everything or nothing Self-pity
No integration Nurturing
The essence that shows up in the group analysis is: the idea that care and attention is a matter of all or nothing. They need all the attention and express this by being hypersensitive. From the slightest cause, they start to scream and shout that nobody takes them into consideration. They really feel that nobody cares about them. But they need so much nurturing that everyone gives up trying to fill this bottomless pit. They never cease to complain, even if they do get the attention.
There is also a second form of Chlorum: those who never ask for any attention. If we think about this for a moment, we get a picture of a man who doesn’t know what he can and what he can’t ask for. With the result that he only asks for attention for himself in certain fixed situations. On all other occasions he just has to manage by himself.
