In Homeopathy, a Veratrum album person is hyper-active, has boundless energy and never stops doing things. The Veratrum album child can be very tiring and constantly runs around and demands our attention.

The Veratrum album individual has identity issues and may sometimes believe that he is the “chosen one” who has come to save the world.
He could become a religious leader who is charismatic, perverse and manipulative.
The god who has come to save mankind
The person who fulfils the Veratrum album profile can be a political leader, a tyrant who is domineering and dangerous.
He is power-crazed and feels superior to everyone else – he is a god who has come to save mankind.
He is obsessed with reaching his goal, which is total power, and loses his sense of identity.
He is disconnected from reality, from what goes on around him; he misrepresents reality in order to reach his goal.
A deceitful dictator

His only goal is to achieve power and reach the highest echelons of social hierarchy.
He sells himself as a rich and powerful man, when this isn’t the case.
He has megalomaniac tendencies, the more he gets, the more he wants, hence the fact he will never reach his ultimate goal.
