Homeopathy and the Elements
‘I sparkle so I am alive’ or ‘Glittering prizes’
Palladium is the first element in the Silver series that is relatively well known. But even here the group analysis can add a whole new dimension to the already well known symptoms. The need for compliments is explained within its proper context, which makes it easier to differentiate between similar remedies such as Calcium sulphuricum a.o.
This metal has been named after Pallas Athene, the Greek goddess of wisdom [Silver series]. It was discovered in 1803, shortly after the discovery of an asteroid which was also named after Pallas.
Palladium is used to make electrical points and surgical instruments because it doesn’t rust. Its rigidity makes it useful in crowns and bridges to replace broken teeth. Very thin Palladium membranes are used in Hydrogen filters.

Essence: successfully showing your work of art, ‘glittering prizes’.
Successfully showing your works of art
They feel that they will finally succeed in showing what they can do. They know what they are worth and are fully confident in putting it across to the public. They are sure that they have enough inspiration to create something that will be a success. The actor plays his part brilliantly and he gets a standing ovation. Their exhibition is a success, they receive the recognition they deserve. Their Ph.D thesis is a success and their speech is received with great applause.
Performance is easy, it comes naturally
Their performance speaks for itself, they were made to perform. Even in childhood they loved to act and they love being the centre of attention. They hardly know what stage fright is and they revel in the attention they are getting, all eyes and ears must be focused on them.
Ambition makes them want to be the centre of attention: pride
They like to get all the attention, but also all the praise. They want to hear they have done well and they like to be flattered. They don’t only want to be the best, they also want to hear that they are the best. Their position needs to be acknowledged by others.
Their honest conviction that they are brilliant and talented can easily turn into pride. They start to speak with the air of someone who has made it. They may even become quite dictatorial towards newcomers, making sure they also know the score. They love appearing in front of an audience, being with large groups of people, the more people that admire them the better. They sparkle at parties, only to arrive home completely exhausted and alone.
Humiliated when they can’t sparkle
They have no doubt about the fact that they are brilliant and that they should be admired and honoured, but they sometimes doubt whether others will realise this fact. They feel very humiliated if they aren’t the centre of attention and they can get quite jealous of the successes of other artists. They get annoyed when they aren’t invited to large parties. This type of humiliation is hard for them to bear and it makes them very angry.
Successful and alone
They tend to be quite lonely, there is little contact with other people. They have difficulty being sociable to other people because they feel so superior to the common man. Because of this they prefer to be on their own.
The sportsman who has reached the top
This is the stage in which the sportsman has really made it. He is standing on the highest platform, receiving the first prize. It can also be the sportsman who stays at the top year after year. He exudes an air of being invincible and all his opponents are too impressed to break through and win. These are people like Eddy Mercks, Bjorn Borg and Carl Lewis, to name but a few.

DD: Silver series, Stage 10.
DD Rhodium: has more doubts, is nervous about things going wrong at the last minute. Palladium hardly doubts his abilities, he is convinced that it will go all right. If there is any doubt it is about his audience, whether they will realise his excellence.
DD Pride: Other remedies in the Silver series don’t have quite as much pride as Palladium. Palladium knows he is successful, the question is whether others know this too.
