Thuja Occidentalis is a basic homeopathic remedy for the treatment of warts and cellulitis. Adjectives to describe individuals with the Thuja Occidentalis personality include cold, calculating, closed off, reserved, unsatisfied, in a hurry, astute and manipulative.
These individuals have a strong tendency towards depression, and are indecisive with an irrational fear of disease; in particular, they have a phobia of cancer.
They are people with poor communication skills that do not reveal anything about themselves. They are observers.
They isolate themselves and completely close themselves off so that you never know what is going on inside their heads. They do not allow any sort of meaningful or profound communication.
They are not good communicators; they express their feelings and thoughts through music, poems or paintings.
Thuja Occidentalis individuals have fixed obsessive ideas; for example, they may experience the sensation of having brittle legs that are made of glass, that they have something living in their abdomen, or that someone is at their side.
When do we prescribe Thuja Occidentalis?
Thuja Occidentalis is prescribed as a whole treatment for chronic illnesses where the immune system has been impaired. It can be particularly helpful when immune deficiencies appear after a vaccination has been administered or as a consequence of industrial or agricultural contamination.
It is prescribed when the body suffers from secondary effects of prolonged or repetitive treatments with traditional medicines such as antibiotics, hormones, cortisones or chemical-based medicines.
It is also used as a whole treatment in cases of repetitive infections such as otitis, bronchitis, cystitis or any chronic inflammation of the respiratory, digestive or genital mucus membranes.
Thuja Occidentalis is also prescribed in cases of constant stress, when our natural defences are weakened.
What are the characteristics of Thuja Occidentalis individuals?
These are people who have a tendency to produce benign tumours and growths of tissue such as warts, genital warts and papillomas.
The development of their illness is slow and progressive; they are obsessive, and develop a fear of having cancer.
Patients suffer from neuralgia, or nerve pain, and relational depression.
Thuja Occidentalis is recommended in cases of stress, or grief due to an accident or the death of a loved one, but these events may not be recent. They may have happened years ago and but the patient hid his feelings.
Patients have a tendency towards cellulitis. They have greasy and shiny skin, and their armpits sweat profusely with an odour of cooked leek.
Women may have uterine fibroids and their nails are striated and easily broken.
The condition worsens with humidity and vaccines. The Thuja Occidentalis patient suffers from nerve pain, migraines and rheumatism.
The most well known clinical indicators are warts (including genital warts) and papillomas, which require a base treatment. Thuja Occidentalis can also be used as a base treatment for cellulitis.
For infectious recurring illnesses such as bronchitis, sinusitis, otitis or severe rhino pharyngitis, Thuja Occidentalis is a base treatment.
It can also be used to treat nerve pain, relational depression, chronic uterine infections, hypertrophy of the prostate, polyps of the bladder, and colitis with a rumbling of the stomach.
