Details

Liz Lalor has taken homeopathic rubric-repertorisation and traditional counselling techniques, and combined the two to create an invaluable case-taking manual.

In 2008 Lalor presented a series of lectures on her video cases in a lecture series called ‘Revealing the Disturbance in the Case’, in London, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Her psychological insight into the mental and emotional disturbance in patients suffering with chronic disease has been the catalyst to this groundbreaking understanding of the Delusion rubrics.

Homeopathic Psychiatry is not only a great addition to understanding case-taking techniques it is an extensive Materia medica study of the meaning and application of the Delusion rubrics.

Homeopathic Psychiatry is a Materia Medica study of the psychotherapeutic application of the NEED for the psychological delusions within each constitutional remedy profiles.

This Materia Medica will be a great addition understanding of the destructive pathology within the simillimum. Homeopathic Psychiatry is a Materia medica which will transform case-repertorisation.

From the Book

Forsaken

"My body has let me down." (abandonment)
"My illness has been caused by others." (persecution)
"I have been cheated of my life." (abandonment and persecution)
"I have been singled out for punishment." (abandonment and persecution)

I have allocated all the Delusion rubrics which pertain to psychological 'delusions of abandoment' or 'delusions of persecution' into Forsaken. If the trauma inside your patient starts with them feeling alone and abandoned, and singled out for punishment by their illness then the simillimum is listed in all the Delusion rubrics: forsaken or persecution.

In my practice I have found that when a patient is dealing with the loss of their health, or with their impending death, they will feel overwhelmed with feelings of aloneness and abandonment.

Feeling alone and abandoned and thinking that no one understands how one feels is a normal response to one's loss of health. A need to be with others who have experienced similar traumas is usually the inspiration behind survivors' groups.

Alternatively, feeling alone and wanting to be alone to face one's illness and impending death is also normal and often preferred by some patients. A need to be with family and friends to have the strength to face one's illness and impending death is also normal. Alternatively, feeling that one should be alone and not embarrass other people with one's disease or decaying body is also normal.

Liz Lalor

Liz is the originator of the Liz Lalor Fertility Program. Liz has worked with 262 different women and has been successful with 232 babies born. Liz has taught her fertility program in Australia, London, and the Netherlands. She has written articles on Vannier and her approach to infertility in Similia, Homoeopathic Medical Panorama, Homeopathy in Practice, Homeopathy International, and Links.

Liz Lalor has a practice covering all aspects of health, in particular specializing in the treatment of autoimmune disorders, and infertility. Liz brings to her teaching, experience in counseling and somatic psychotherapy.

Liz uses constitutional homeopathy within a conventional counseling practice to help her patients understand more about themselves as a particular 'homeopathic constitutional type'. Liz is able to draw upon her experience of counseling the more 'unusual' constitutional remedy profiles and has written articles on:

  1. Agaricus and Alice in Alice's Adventure in Wonderland
  2. Frodo and Gollum and the remedy profiles of Anacardium and Mancinella from Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings
  3. Hamlet and the remedy profile of Muriaticum acidum
  4. Tarentula hispanica and the character of Iago from Shakespeare's Othello
  5. Anhalonium and Queen Galadriel from Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings

Liz has published articles on Baryta carbonicum, Luna, Arnica, Medorrhinum, Natrum sulphuricum, Carcinosin, Lac humanum, Muriaticum acidum, and Homeopathic Psychiatry, in Similia, Homeopathy in Practice, Homeopathy International, Links, and American Journal of Homeopathy.

Her first book: A Homeopathic Guide to Partnership and Compatibility is an exploration of constitutional remedy profiles and romantic compatibility. This was the first Materia medica to be sold in mainstream bookshops.

Reviews

Most recently, a young Belgium homeopath asked me how to get more out of the Repertory. I suggested she slowly read through the Delusion rubrics, making sure to understand each one. It is this insight which makes me very happy to endorse this enormous work of Liz Lalor.

The Delusion rubrics are treasures which need to be unlocked. Some homeopaths dismiss them altogether as delusions which are too difficult to rely upon. Liz Lalor has come up with a most interesting concept to not only understand these critical rubrics but to effectively use them in practice.

I am proud that she prefers using out team's work to do so. When editing the repertory, we have spent much time to remain faithful to the source texts. These efforts are complementary to the wisdom and work, generously explained in Liz's book. I trust that the reader of Homeopathic Psychiatry will find the repertory to be an even more accurate tool.
