To Whom is Graphite recommended
The Graphites subject, having an almost exclusively carbonic constitution, has a robust, opulent build and with all the hypofunctioning endocrine glands, in particular thyroid, adrenal and gonads.
The poor functioning of the thyroid leads to a slowed basal metabolism and a lack of metabolic activity of the tissues, with insufficient heat production, for which the subject is extremely cold and has a marked tendency to gain weight up to obesity. The low activity of the adrenal glands makes the subject devoid of emotion, of any enthusiasm, apathetic, indifferent, who gets tired easily, listless, sad and melancholy.
The poor functioning of the gonads lowers libido and compromises normal sexual activity, which can even lead to frigidity in women and impotence in men. Graphites has dry, flaky skin, dry mouth, dry hair, hard, thick nails, dry stools, and has chronic rhinitis.
A marked feature is the sensation of blood in the head with flushing of the face. Furthermore, considering that the remedy contains traces of iron, we will find anemia and all its consequences, such as pallor, insufficient menstruation and constipation.
