Studying and analysing the homeopathic remedies that possess either or both the symptoms show how the fear of people and the desire for company reflect the unique essence of the remedy. By understanding the origins of the fear and the desire to have someone close, we can more accurately prescribe a remedy that addresses the core of the problem.
The reasons for feeling fearful of people and, in some cases, desiring the company of others have many origins and differ widely in individuals. Some are aware of why this feeling exists, while others are caught in the web without any understanding.
The following are some of the most prominent remedies that have a strong fear of people, or in addition possess the desire for company linked to it.
FEAR OF PEOPLE
Baryta Carbonica [Carbonate of barium]. The Baryta Carbonica person is bashful, mistrustful, and in need of reassurance. There is also a certain degree of developmental delay. All these characteristics bring forth an aversion to strangers and a basic fear of people. As children, the Baryta may find it difficult to understand what is going on around them; they are very uneasy in the presence of strangers. They, therefore, become extremely dependent on their parents [Company, aversion to: presence of strangers].
Baryta Carbonica personalities do not grasp things. They may think that people are laughing at them and as a result hide behind the furniture [Hide: child thinks all visitors laugh at him and hides behind the furniture]. Baryta always seems to be in a place that is unfamiliar to them and never quite comprehend what is going on. Since they so strongly rely on what is familiar, they fear losing their protectors and, therefore, exhibit anxiety. The new and unfamiliar is frightening. Their fear of people, therefore, is quite understandable.
