Whitmont (1982, page 128) is the only person who has written something about Magnesium iodatum: ‘Magnesium iodatum is dark, scrawny, shrivelled, thin and worn out, in a state of continuous uproar or depression. It combines the features of two of the most restless drugs we know of. Its special indi-cations are hyperthyroidism, prostatic and biliary condition.’
Aggression Work, busy, restless
Fear of loss Freedom of movement
Right of existence
If we apply the group analysis to Magnesium iodatum we get the following theme: they have to fight for their existence. They have the idea that their existence is being threatened and therefore they have to take an aggressive stand in life. It may be that they have to fight to get a job, or at least that is the feeling they have. They work hard because they feel that that is how they can justify their existence. They also need a lot of space in order to feel comfortable. It is difficult for them to have to many ties.
A variation on the theme is that they have to avoid quarrels, otherwise their existence might be threatened. Like the other Magnesiums they are extremely sensitive to aggression and violence, even if it is only on television. They feel that violence will result in not being able to get fed anymore. The situation that lies behind this delusion could be that of a child whose parents are getting divorced and whose mother has no means to support herself and her child.
A third variation on the theme might be the situation where someone has to escape from violence. Either a war or a natural disaster is threatening their survival and they have to escape to safer regions. For instance, someone knows that a natural disaster in the form of a tornado is imminent and he has to convince the people in his village that this danger is real. He may even have to get angry and shout in order to convince them. They have to leave immediately and they have to hurry up and collect all their important belongings.
the idea that they have to fight for existence.
They feel threatened in their existence. They have the delusion that they have to fight in order to survive. They are easily irritated, particularly if other people are coming too close, or are hindering them. They are also very restless and feel that they should be busy all the time.
The opposite may also be true, in which case they have an aversion to quarrels and anger. They can’t tolerate aggression, even seeing it on television or reading it in the papers. They have an aversion to tying themselves down to any relationships. If they suddenly had to leave they would have to break this tie and that might cause problems or quarrels.
