Remedy Spotlight: Anacardium orientale
This is a plant remedy.
Common name: Marking nut.
This is a great remedy for inner conflict and states that are contradictory. A person might get into this state by having overbearing parents who don’t allow the child to take decisions for themselves. If the child does make a decision, they are punished…therefore, they feel insecure. There is a lack of self confidence and they get nervous. If the domination persists, they may fall into a violent state with contempt for others. They can therefore be cruel and have a lack of self confidence. On the one hand, they are an “angel” because they want to prove themselves and on the other, a “devil” because of the lack of confidence and confusion. The patient has two wills. The feeling of an angel sitting on one shoulder and the devil on the other shoulder.
