Thermal – Hot patient
Analysis of Case
Organ Affected- oral cavity
Embryonic germ layer-Endoderm
Conflict shock- Sudden demise of the father, as the patient was too much attached to his father he could not handle this situation. His father was the only earning member he did not know how will he take care of his mother and maternal aunt who stays with so here the conflict is MORSEL CONFLICT. In this case the lesions were present on the right side. The right half of the mouth and the pharynx co-relates to an “ingoing Morsel” ie “not being able to swallow a morsel”
Brain Controlling center-Brain stem
Conflict Active Phase- Starting with DHS, during the conflict-active phase cells in the submucosa of the mouth proliferate proportionally to the intensity of the conflict. The Biological purpose of the additional cells is to better salivate a morsel in order to absorb it faster. Salivation is stimulated by the autonomic nervous system.
Conflict healing phase- During the healing phase fungi remove the cells that are no longer needed. In the mouth, the healing phase presents as lesions or ulcers in the mucous membrane of the oral cavity which is very painful.
A chronic condition indicates that there is a relapse of conflict which prolonged the healing phase. (Patient lost his job due to his ill health- sudden financial loss- morsel conflict).
