Sulfur, the homeopathic sulfur, is one of the great polychrests, which have a broad spectrum of activity and are prescribed in many people. As a remedy for children suffering from the attention deficit syndrome, it is also prescribed relatively frequently. Sulfur children are usually above average intelligent, have a quick mind, are interested in many different things and do not like to strain.
They are impatient, have little stamina, and have little respect for authorities and their rules. They prefer to set their own rules and want others to follow them. Unlike Lycopodium children, they are not interested in having power. They just think that their view of things is better and are born leaders. If you let them have their will and follow them, they are very dedicated and helpful. Sulfur children like to surround themselves with younger children because they follow them and their ideas more often.
Sulfur and ADHD
If a Sulfur child has ADHD, the attention span is reduced. His many interests lead to increased distractibility and the problem of something to hold up. The actually perfectionist child, who wants to do everything very, very well, can drag everything because of the lack of endurance. The room is like a garbage dump. Clean and dirty things are mixed up. Often you can not step in the room of a sulfuric child at all. The exercise books are frayed.
Often, the child does not even have all the things it needs when it arrives at school. The homework book has lost it, but it is not worried about it. It can remember everything it had. Or it decides to do the homework quickly the next day in front of the school. But at some point, even an above-average intelligent child can no longer compensate for the deficits in the learning organization.
Then a Sulfur child must make an effort to continue to show good school performance and here is often the sticking point at which there is a break in the performance curve and the parents with the child seek homeopathic treatment.
Sulfur – self-centered, impatient and overconfident
Self-centered and self-confident as the Sulfur child is common, it will not let the butter on the bread in the treatment situation. It likes to take center stage and present itself and its heroic deeds in flowery words. It does not hesitate to tell the practitioner his great views and thoughts about the world. However, a Sulfur child can be very skeptical about the physical examination.
It does not like showing others and is rather shy and shy here. If you ask the parents about the child's physical complaints, you will hear that they often have indigestion with bloating. Also skin diseases are very common in Sulfur children. These itches are strong and are made worse by washing. Generally, Sulfur children do not like water. It can be a big fight that they even wash once a day.
Sulfur – the distracted professor or leader
Basically, there are two types of Sulfur. The one constantly tinkers about self-made projects. He is perfectionist and enthusiastic. Contacts with peers are difficult, because they can not follow his lofty ideas and rather play simple games. Often this child is a loner or gathers a crowd of younger children who admire him and unconditionally follow him.
The other type, the leader, is reminiscent of his assertiveness Lycopodium or Nux vomica. He is practically gifted, adheres only to his own rules and is the born leader. He always has great ideas about what to do and above all how to do something. If he succeeds in forming a group that accepts his ideas and joins in, he can come to a stable circle of friends, which is unusual for ADHD children.
The constitutional treatment with Sulfur in ADHD
A Sulfur child must learn to organize, to fit in, and to accept authority. It's not always that easy. If the homeopathic remedy Sulfur is the right kind of constitutional remedy for a child, that child will be able to develop a greater willingness to exert and better control himself as the treatment progresses. It will learn to think before acting and to include the concerns and sensitivities of other people more strongly in his actions.
The motor restlessness will decrease and the attention span will increase. Of course, a Sulfur child will always be a bit more egocentric than others and it will have its own ideas of how to tackle it. But if it is in equilibrium with itself, it can sometimes do what another person demands of it and be more reasonable in the face of prevailing rules.
