“Get angry, get furious but never crumble to resentment.”
“Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”
Some of the greatest toxins we encounter are the ones generated by our own negative emotions. Not that there isn’t a healthy role and need for all emotions to be felt and expressed, but particularly the ones which are held onto create some of the most damaging states of disease.
Nitricum Acidum is an especially useful remedy for deep, long-held states of resentment. Patient’s needing this remedy can tend to be surrounded by a cloud of negativity, including a strongly pessimistic attitude, and a high degree of irritability. The legendary “Hatfield vs. McCoy” feud was fuelled by a profoundly deep grudge based in this particular disease state of mind. Even if an apology is offered up, someone in a deep nit-ac state is unlikely to be moved to accept it. Or even if they do apparently accept it, it is just for show and not reflective of their true feeling.
Another key side to this remedy state is an intense anxiety for their own health, and a belief that their condition is much more serious than it actually is.
When there are physical symptoms arising from this state, they may characteristically include back pain. This is also one of the commonly used remedies for warts. Hemorrhoids which are quite painful after stool, which may feel like splinters in the rectum is another possible symptom. There are a variety of inflammation symptoms related to the digestive tract as well.
