Classification of homeopathic therapists according to the element theory

Language is the most basic and essential tool of homeopaths. The anamnesis is the best source of information. And despite of that, some homeopaths fall back on primitive tools for analysis like radionics. According to Jan Scholten most homeopaths are the “Lanthanides series” type, persons who search inside themselves, try to be independent, or at least they can be found on the “Silver series”, people who loves sciences and search for new insight, experts in communication. But there seems another kind of therapists who has not reached that level. Let’s see how we can apply element theory of homeopathy on the therapists.

Hydrogen to Silicium series

Normally they have no interest in healing arts and much less in homeopathy.

Iron series

They work, work, work, real workaholics. Repetition is their core essence. Imitation, learning from others. They need instructions, feedback from some kind of machine (radionics, biofeedback, meridian measurement) but without to understand the underlying principles. They are able to understand new concepts, but they need a teacher, a guru. Learning from books is rather difficult, only possible with a teacher. They can be found at every seminar for beginner, learning the basics of the Organon, the basics of the materia medica. They do not perform a homeopathic proving on their own, only in a group. In analyzing a case they rely heavily on a software with an expert system. Thinking out the box is not an option, they live inside the box, the fabric. Some of them even use complex or combination remedies and other compromises in the worst case. New therapy systems which are labeled with some kind of trademark under the control of a franchise could unfortunately attract them. Usually they confuse homeopathy with herbalism or other naturopathic therapies.

Positive: they love to work in a team, work hard and long, asks questions, asks for help, accept criticism very well

Negative: they don’t think much on their own (even dogmatic or too skeptic like alumina) and their learning progress is rather average

Silver series

They are attracted to homeopathy because of it’s interdisciplinary requirements in science, medicine, language (linguistics), psychology, and so on. They are ready to learn new methods, acquire new skills. They love books and they are autodidacts. They search for a teacher only to achieve a certain level of skill faster. They understand that language is the most powerful tool and they do not rely on software or the repertory too much, because they are aware that these are just tools. They even regard teachers as “tools“. With the time they create their own system, write their own books and become a teacher on their own. They love to communicate new ideas to their colleagues or patients, organizing seminars and congresses. They are rather creative and have a inclination to self-presentation (like a actor).

Positive: (almost) independent, autodidacts, creative

Negative: don’t ask for help and could appear a little arrogant, don’t like criticism

Aurum series

Their profession can be felt as a “burden”, heavy and they have sometimes the delusion that without them the world would stop spinning. It is like they behave as a prophet, someone with a divine mission. They listen, but it’s like they are in some kind distant, isolated from the patient. But they do their very best for their patients. They regard their patients as their “children”, they hug them and they care very much. Maybe they get more responsibility with the time. They lead a school for homeopathy, publishing house for homeopathic literature, manage congresses for homeopathy and so on. It’s all about a greater responsibility.

Positive: A warm quality of interest and very responsible like a father

Negative: They can retreat and isolate themselves, becoming very depressed, too much responsibility, never asking for help (which can be dangerous for themselves) … or they become very arrogant because they fear to loose their higher status

Lanthanide series

They go on a lonely journey in their inner world. They love independence and stillness. During this calm moments they find new and very deep insights, which are very helpful for the entire homeopathy society. But to find this calm moments becomes more and more difficult. It is like they need to find all fragments of themselves first and reunite them (like Arnica which is related to the Lanthanides). Their task is “inner unity“, the magnetic field which reorders the particles to one whole. But when they finally reach their goal, when they come back from their (inner) journeys, they have a lot to tell and we have a lot to learn from them. Whatever they find, it was buried in the deep and it needs a lot of time to digest. They can recognize invisible morphic fields, even without the powerful tool of language, because they look inside and recognize the patterns.

Positive: deep thinkers, innovative, they see the whole picture (of the entire family or even society in relation to the patient) and their therapy can be very effective

Negative: they spend too much time with their inner world, they have no time for their patients, they get easily bored with “superficial cases” (or what they may regard as superficial)

Actinides series

Like the Lanthanide series, the Actinides type of therapist is able to recognize the invisible morphic field, the invisible force which influence entire societies. But in contrast to the Lanthanide the Actinides are also able to manipulate this vast fields for their own purpose. A rare kind of person, because they may die young or they will not have any interest in helping others. But if they decide to help and to become a therapist, they are the most powerful. They seem to have endless energy, bright in many fields, from art to science and so much more. They reach insight so much more easily as the Lanthanide type. When Lanthanide needs a journey, the Actinides needs just a nap.

Positive: powerful healers

Negative: no interest in the individual person, manipulative in a very subtle way
