Let’s solve the Rubik’s Cube of Donald Trump. This will involve connecting the dots between a love of property and glamour, obsession with building walls, tendency to superficial relationships, cupidity and ruthlessness, Fluoric Acidum is unmistakably Donald Trump’s indicated remedy. Discussion of the remedy sheds light not only on Donald Trump but homeopathic practice and philosophy.
How would you like to get behind Donald Trump’s eyes or walk a mile in his shoes? An excursion into the Trump mind-set could decide whether or not to vote for him. Homeopathy offers two ways this can be carried out.
- A direct method undertaken only in accordance with supervised homeopathic research protocols involves daily self-administration of minute amounts of a toxic substance, in this case fluoric acid. After a month your inner Donald Trump will bud and soon blossom.
- The second, more convenient method involves reading about the homeopathic remedy derived from fluoric acid. This information (the remedy’s materia medica) issues from journals of research subjects who have undergone method one.
The day when Donald Trump actually becomes a patient any bias I may hold against him will be set aside and confidentiality will rule our relationship. But he does not work with me, poses a suitability risk in regard to the office of president and his numerous interviews, frequent appearance in political debates, pronouncements on social media, vivid relationship and business proclivities showcase a temperament inviting to study (also see this link for some of the basic facts about his life). Although details of the presumptive Republican nominee’s medical history are scant, a particular remedy Fluoric Acidum recommends itself as holding up a mirror to the Trump psyche.
The indicated remedy
An indicated remedy profile depicts illness susceptibilities but also so much more. Materia medica divulges an analysis of the remedy-type personality; an accounting of its core values; a depiction of characteristic behaviors; and a window into a key emotional struggle the client is typically at pains not to reveal. After a remedy has run its course numerous improvements in health are usually noticed. This occurs because the remedy prompts resolution of a hot button issue. When circumstances cause the hot button to be pushed behaviors and outbursts arise that anyone other than a homeopath would chalk up to the individual’s personality.
Depending on how similar they are to Trump in the first place, week by week and month by month participants in the study steadily report behaviors and symptoms suggesting they are morphing into Donald Trump.
But judge for yourself:
The Fluoric Acidum remedy
What follows is a sampling of Fluoric Acidum materia medica adapted from a master homeopath, Rajan Sankaran. The remedy is described as connecting the dots between the following features:
* A demand for glamour
They will push anything and anyone aside in the all-absorbing desire to shine and glitter. They love to be the big macho guy for everybody to look up to. They want to draw the attention with their big car and high position in glamour world. They are very ambitious, want to climb up high and earn lots of money.
* Tendency to superficial relationships
Fluorine is the lightest, the most active and reactive, forming and breaking relationships very quickly. This can be seen in the symptomatology of Fluoric acid. The remedy state is flirtatious, has many acquaintances but no deep relationship. The term “buoyancy” has been used to describe it. The word is derived from “buoy,” a conical object that floats on the surface of the ocean and never sinks or reaches any depth. The feeling of being in a fluorine state is abnormal for a human being, at any time.
Aversion to responsibility, sexual desire increased; attracted to strangers, and increased energy. A naive psychopath, prone to serious gambling.
*Isolation and narcissism
*Cupidity (overt demand for sexual experience)
*Dependency on property
*Compulsion to break taboos
*Under the delusion that he must get rid of servants
In other words, “You’re fired.” Fluoric Acid is the only remedy to appear in this rubric.
Comes into play in regard to ailments of the bones, mucous membranes and epithelium, complaints of old age, and premature old age; sexual exhaustion, weakly constitutions, sallow skin, and emaciation.
Treatment with the remedy
In accordance with the homeopathic dictum, Use like to treat like, repeated and succussed (vigorously shaken) dilutions of fluoric acid (producing the remedy) effectively treat a state reflected in the substance’s proving. Anyone having access to or influence with Donald Trump who wishes to make him aware of this beneficial remedy is encouraged to contact me.
How did Trump get this way?
Fluoric acid exposure engenders a Trump-like mindset and physiology in research subjects. Donald Trump likely came to exemplify Fluoric Acidim by other means. An inherited tendency to the state that homeopaths refer to as miasmatic is responsible. Understanding Donald Trump’s Fluoric Acidum remedy state directs us into intricacies of homeopathic and Traditional Chinese Medicine theory that I now relate in condensed fashion. A more expansive account can be found in my book Interpreting Chronic Illness, The Convergence of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy and Biomedicine.
Fluoric acid’s sphere of influence, extending to the bones, kidneys, bladder, epithelium, sexual function, and general vitality pertains to the Water phase in Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Phases system. My own reworking of the Five Phases, called Sense Dimensional Analysis designates Water as the Sense Dimension pertaining to the sense of Hearing. An existential conundrum is embedded within Hearing. It pits Entropy versus Consolidation. What does this mean?
In brief, entropy means our physical dissolution upon death. This is “opposed” by the energy of consolidation evident in the bones whose hard and dense tissue endures through time. Entropic dissolution of our body upon death is also combatted and vanquished via reproductive function, the fact that enduring characteristics are conveyed into the future by means of DNA.
Trump’s handshaking phobia and obsession with building a wall
These well known Trump traits reflect a germophobia feature pertaining to a category of illness susceptibility homeopaths call the syphilitic miasm within which Fluoric Acidum belongs. Let me explain.
An issue pertaining to boundaries expressed within the Sense Dimension of Hearing is reflected in the softness and moisture of epithelium on the one hand and its polar opposite, the hardness and dryness of bones on the other. Despite their opposing textures and function both tissues demarcate boundaries within a “permeability versus structure” spectrum. The “permeability versus resistance” conundrum’s infiltration of the subconscious produces angst: existential questions evoking the quandary of the outsider. These questions include:
“Am I granted entry or am I to be kept out?” “Am I a club member or must I transgress a boundary in order to belong?” “How do I secure my physical body from the intrusion of unwelcome germs?” As we have seen the latter question reflects the syphilitic miasm’s keynote germophobia feature.
The syphilitic miasm and the Sense Dimension of Hearing
A syphilitic delusion is embedded within Hearing that fuels a belief that permeability is suspect. Thus, only rigid structures are to be trusted. Borders must be fortified. Walls must be built to stave off foreign elements such as Muslims, Mexicans and ocean surf lapping at the margins of his golf course. Trump’s fears of contamination and disdain for permeability betrays ingrained terror of the nether side of the life and death boundary. His fears render him suspicious. His flight from fear expresses failure to resolve entropy versus consolidation. It compels short-term thinking, and speedy gratification of wealth, property, glamour and sexual wants.
Homeopathy’s notion of the syphilitic miasm is Hearing’s core conundrum inflamed to the point of consolidating syphilis’s influence within familial legacy. In homeopathic theory the remedy Donald Trump needs, Fluoric Acidum is a mentally buoyant, ruthless and transgressive strain of the syphilitic miasm.
Donald Trump’s inherited legacy displays the dilemma of an overcompensating outsider. Congenital difficulty facing up to entropy draws him and those within his line toward consolidation: over reliance on defensive structures such as walls; materiality and time compressed pleasures such as sex. Conjunct with illness susceptibilities described this is the remedy Fluoric Acidum.
Implications for our understanding of Trump
- Trump’s apparent heritage of transgression invites continuance of transgressive behavior. This reflects what to a homeopath appears to be syphilitic legacy. Though conventionally viewed as compensatory of insecurity (sexual or otherwise) Trump’ bluster serves to thwart congenital outsider status.
- Regarded through the lens of Fluoric Acidum Donald Trump will continue to shoot from the hip despite all attempts to behave in a more presidential manner. His transforming into a leader capable of long-term thinking or development of well-considered policy is not to be expected.
How we know what a remedy such as Fluoric Acidum actually does
We let “experiment” temporarily stand for the less recognizable term proving (from a German word meaning to test) that homeopaths use when referring to the research process I am about to describe.
In our experiment six to ten healthy men and women having little or anything in common with Donald Trump are gathered together. For our purposes each of them is in the vicinity of Mr. Trump’s 69 years of age. Over the course of six months these individuals commit to maintaining stable lives. At the same time they will daily, self-administer minute amounts of an unspecified substance provided to them. All the while they maintain a journal detailing thoughts, feelings, behaviors, symptoms and even encounters cropping up during the six-month period. At the conclusion of the project the journals are forwarded to the research supervisor (known as a proving master). His close reading of the journals enables the supervisor to extract from and collate specific symptoms but also behaviors, and emotions directly tied to the substance’s influence. Events consistently aligned with the presence of the substance in the subjects’ lives are also noted. Unusual and rare entries in every category are designated as significant. In the resulting materia medica entry these are highlighted.
Note concerning homeopathic texts
Principal homeopathic texts are known as materia medica describe the total influence that a substance has been found to have on a healthy individual. These are extraordinarily truthful resources, making no distinction between desired and toxic effects. Nor any limit placed on substances from which a remedy may be derived. This includes but is not limited to plants, minerals, venoms, nosodes (illness discharge) or sarcodes (anatomical tissue). A lesson we derive from this is:
Depending on the exact circumstance and amount used any substance can be either a medicine or a poison.
Homeopathic materia medica has two relatives in the medical arena. These are 1) toxicology texts describing the deleterious effects of substances on living things and; 2) the physicians’ desk reference that focuses on the desired effects pharmaceuticals have on appropriately symptomatic individuals. Though a direct physiological consequence of the same drug, undesired outcomes dubbed “side” effects are viewed as only incidentally related to the beneficial drug.
