Homeopathy and the Elements
This book will show the Fluoratums in a slightly different light from before. We will look at their properties in a broader sense and they will therefore become easier to recognise. The theme of money and sex has proved to be common to the whole carbon series, which makes the picture of Fluor more positive than the one that I painted in ‘Homeopathy and Minerals’.
Fluor is rather special in that it isn’t easy to potentise. If we were to dissolve it in water it would immediately react with the water to form Fluoric acid. Other solvents would give similar problems, so it won’t be easy to find a suitable medium to potentise Fluor in its pure elemental form.
The name Fluor is derived from ‘fluo’, stream. It was discovered in 1771. It is the most reactive of all the non-metallic elements and it affects every substance it comes in contact with, even metals like Platinum.
There are only a few noble gases that are not affected by its aggressive action.
Fluor is the main active component in enamel, the protective coating on our teeth. This enamel is hard, smooth and shiny. This same smooth hardness is the reason why it is so useful for anti-stick coatings on saucepans. We can separate Uranium isotopes out of uranium fluoride, UF6.

Picture of Fluor
Essence: letting go of personality and values.
Letting go of values: immoral
They have a tendency to let go of all the values they have had to take on board during their life so far. They feel that they can no longer live within this restrictive set of rules and norms and they would rather get rid of them.
Letting go of values: breaking taboos
Whilst letting go of values may lead to immoral behaviour, it can also have a positive side, i.e. the breaking of old taboos. These are the people who will break the taboos of the generations who have gone before them. They don’t care what other people think, they simply have to break the old stifling patterns and let in a breath of fresh air.
Holding on to the self: glamour.
They feel a great need to be respected, to build up a large personality. They usually go and look for it in the world where you are most likely to be noticed, i.e. the yuppy world. They would love to be a part of this world, as all that nice glitter makes them feel good. We find them as models or film stars or stewardesses, where they can show off their smooth good looks. Underneath all this external glamour lies the heart of a little child, a weak personality that is in desperate need of self respect.
The end of the self
So the desire for glamour is a compensation for the opposite, a feeling deep down in themselves that they have no real personality. They have to make up for it with a smooth and shiny, but rather hard exterior.
Holding on to possessions
They like to have money, plenty of it, and to get it fast. Possessions are their main value in life, nothing else matters to them. Money is also a means to reach their goal, i.e. buying nice clothes and jewels and fast cars to show off with. They spend their money as fast as they earn it. Possessions are used to fill up the inner emptiness.
Letting go of property
They don’t like to let go of any of their possessions but at the same time they easily get bored with what they have got. As soon as they have one thing they start to hanker after the next.
They can only let go of money when there is a chance of something more in return, as in the case of gambling, which they can even get addicted to. Or when they pay for expensive rounds of drinks in the hope of being the most popular guy at the party.
There is another side to them we sometimes see, where they give away large amounts of money without any apparent reason.
Holding on to the physical: sex
Sex can be a great way to satisfy the need for recognition. They use it to increase their feeling of self-worth. They like to flirt and they tend to go out hunting for someone to have sex with. They have many different partners as sex is not connected to emotions, it is only used to fill up the emptiness inside. But it does not give them the satisfaction they crave for. Because of the lack of emotional involvement they are left with an even greater feeling of emptiness than before. They may also use sex to climb the social ladder.
They may have a tendency towards immoral or taboo forms of sex such as incest, homosexuality, sado masochism, sodomy or group sex.
A demanding and aggressive person: fast, hard, hurried.
Everything has to go fast. As they are fast talkers and quick on the uptake they therefore make good business men. They get on well in the service sector, in the hotel world, stock exchange etc. They dream about business. They are smart-looking and they like parties: they are often the life and soul of these parties too.
A demanding borderline: narcissist
If their personality is not well developed we get a type of narcissistic behaviour. Narcissism is a trait that can be found in the whole carbon series, but it is particularly strong in Fluor, because they have a tendency to take what they want without any consideration for other people. They want to show who they are, even if it means someone else has to suffer.
They like to have people around to fill up the emptiness, but when this other person starts to state his or her own need, they quickly disappear from view. The same thing happens when the other person is a therapist who doesn’t play the game according to their wishes.
Letting go of values: psychopathic
When the situation becomes extreme they can get quite ruthless, almost psychopathic. They know what they want but they don’t think about the consequences of their actions and what this will mean for other people. They may lie, cheat or steal to get their way. If their conscience starts to speak they push it away so fast that they forget they even heard it. Their assertive aggressiveness may lead them into criminality, prostitution, drug dealing etc.
Letting go of the essence: superficial
They let go of all values, including the most essential one, the reason for living. They no longer have any real aim in life, they don’t know what is important anymore. This makes them very superficial, which can show itself in many ways, such as in dealing with relationships, money or business. They only care about things that look nice on the surface: they only choose their partners for their looks, rather than for their character.
But underneath this glossy exterior remains the longing for deeper contact. So they keep on hunting, going from one partner to the next in search of the elusive qualities of warmth and real caring. The same hunt goes on in all areas of their life, never finding the deeper satisfaction in this world of superficiality.
A fleeing personality
They tend to escape from themselves into the material world of money and sex. Or they have the feeling they should flee in order to save their possessions, as in the case of illegally obtained goods.
Letting go of the self: the hero
This is the stage where the hero meets the dragon that is guarding the princess. He has to conquer this awesome fiery beast, and he can only do this if he can overcome his deepest fears. The hero has to let go of his own ego, for only then will he be successful in his fight. Only then will he be able to marry his perfect bride, the beautiful princess. It is a symbolic marriage, a marriage between the ego and the real Self. Here we see both sides of the Fluor character again: the awesome dragon who destroys everything that is good and beautiful and on the other side the princess who is the symbol of beauty itself. They are both sides of the same coin: the dragon and the princes are one and the same. We see the same theme in the tale of the princess and the frog. The frog is really a prince who needs to be woken by a kiss from the princess.

DD: Carbon series, Stage 17, Aceticums, Nitricums, Veratrum.
DD: Oxygen: has the feeling that he will eventually get what he wants if he whines long enough. Fluor feels he no longer has the right to get what he wants, others won’t let him have anything, so he has to get it illegally if needs be.
DD Nitricums. Another comparison can be made with the Nitricums, which are similar to the Sulphuricums in certain respects. The Nitricums like a fat lifestyle, good food and good wine and good company. The Fluoratums like the same things, but they are more desperate to get them. One example to show the difference between the two is the the way they drink. The Nitricums like a glass or two of good wine during supper and a little brandy with coffee afterwards. The Fluoratums are more inclined to go for larger quantities, and preferably of the stronger stuff.
They hope that the alcohol will break the hard shell, making it easier for them to get through to others.
A similar difference can be seen in their attitude towards sex. The Nitricums like to really enjoy it, whilst the Fluoratums go through many partners in their search for deeper contact.
DD Sulphuricums. The Fluoratums are similar to the Sulphuricums in the sense that they both warm blooded and they both like beautiful clothes. The difference is that the Fluoratums use these clothes to show off and be noticed, whilst for the Sulphuricums it is more a matter of aesthetics, they like the feeling of wearing something nice. The Sulphuricums are also much more committed in their relationships.
