I had wanted to call this chapter 'Nat-f and incest', so strong is the relationship between these two. Since I have discovered this relationship, I have been able to offer more help to people with a background of incest.
Sadness, depression Glamour, glitter
Closed, alone Money, cars, clothes
Denial, forbidden Hard, fast, hurried
Holding on Superficial contacts
Let us have a look how this theme can be explained with the group analysis. The first item is forbidden sex. And the most extreme taboo on sex is incest. But other forbidden aspects may also be present. The forbidden aspect makes it impossible to talk about, they have to deal with it themselves. It may even be the case that the incest was not experienced as something bad, but the taboo on the subject made it necessary to keep silent.
A variation on this theme is that they feel alone in their sexual experiences. In spite of their sexual contact they still feel lonely. They may still look for sexual contact in order to get rid of this feeling, but sometimes it only aggravates the problem. The sexual act may bring up such feelings of loneliness that they will start crying. Eventually they will want to avoid this kind of contact. This could be the situation of some prostitutes, who turn away from their profession.
Yet another variation might be that they feel alone in their glittering career. They try to build up a good, glamorous career in order to have many contacts that can relieve their loneliness. But in spite of all these contacts they still feel lonely; they feel it is only superficial and meaningless. Therefore they remain reserved themselves and don’t make contact on an emotional level, in spite of their outward liveliness. An situation which could cause this state of being could be one where someone has had a fantastic career, but eventually is left behind on her own, forgotten by her former public and her colleagues.
Julian (1984, page 366) is the only one who has given a description of Nat-f, but in my experience this is not complete. Worth noticing is the fact that fluoride tablets, given to maintain healthy teeth, contain Natrum fluoride.
It is difficult to give a complete picture of Nat-f, because I have not had a case yet where Nat-f was the only prescription. The incest cases were usually complicated with other aspects, such as violence or threats, needing several other remedies in addition to Nat-f.
The following case also required several remedies, but there is much to be learned from the reaction to Nat-f.
incest, forbidden sex.
They have the feeling that they have done something that is forbidden, the way incest is forbidden. Because of the taboo on the subject they can’t talk about it. If they did, they might not be accepted by others anymore, and they already feel very lonely anyway.
In a case of incest, mother, father and daughter are often all three in a Nat-f state. The daughter is experiencing the incest and can’t talk about it. But very often the whole subject of sex is taboo. Mother has no desire, and doesn’t want to have anything to do with it, so that father starts to look elsewhere, secretly. The only person whom he can rely upon to keep this secret is his daughter. Here he can satisfy his desire for sexual contact and at the same time command her not to talk about it. And in mother's eyes sex doesn’t exist, so she doesn’t see it.
People who have experienced such a situation of incest nevertheless may have a strong desire for contact, which they will try to get via sexual relationships. They might feel that sex is necessary immediately after a first meeting, in order to build up a proper friendship. But this often ends in disappointment, whereby sex did not bring them the warmth and intimacy they were craving for. This makes them even more lonely and sad. They might even start to cry during the love making. Eventually they won’t want to have any more contacts, and will shut themselves off from everybody.
Another way of making contact is by becoming a successful and glamorous businessman or artist. But through their reserved attitude these contacts are not really what they hoped them to be,or it is merely shine on the outside. Once again they are left behind on their own.
