Latex Vulcani is a more recently proven remedy (2001) by Misha Norland and the School of Homeopathy. I have now given the remedy many times and want to share a few insights about this most wonderful remedy. The remedy was made from an untreated latex condom. I have found that this energy is embedded into the remedy and forms it’s essence.
Latex comes from the sap of many different plants is the “glue” that helps the wound of the plants surface heal. It is harvested from the rubber plant by cutting the bark and letting it bleed into a can to collect the sap. Latex is collected from trees in the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae) and in particular Hevea brasiliensis. Sulphur is used to vulcanize rubber so that it is more stable, and pliable. Latex is used to make many articles but most notable are condoms, latex surgical gloves, balloons and rubber bands.

In every case I have seen there has been a certain disconnect from themselves. This translated to an inability to take action or a theme of being held back. In the first case I saw every descriptor that the person spoke of was in relation to being a balloon. Her primary physical complaint was back pain that was debilitating and she would routinely lose her voice. This she had experienced her entire life. Some of the phrases she used were, “Emotions bouncing all around. On another planet, Something in the house trying to kill me, Responsibility is like bouncing balls,”
In her first follow-up she reported she “did not feel as deflated, so on the floor.” She received a get well balloon and then went on to say her husband commented she was more “buoyant”. She wanted to not feel so stuck and have negative energy bounce off of her”. Her back healed in one month and had no back pain whatsoever. Her voice has remained stable for years now. She used words that exactly describe latex.
In the next case it was a much more difficult case; one of the most difficult cases I have ever treated because many very well selected remedies had no effect. Her main complaint was eczema around the hairline on the back of her head. Sulphur was the most indicated remedy and seemed to help only a little. After several months Psorinum was given., again with only marginal results. After asking about other aspects of her life she shared that she was going to lose her home to foreclosure along with two other investment properties. I asked what she could do to protect her interests and she that she knew of all of the things to do but could not do them, even simple tasks to take care of the problems. She was now going to lose all of her investments to simple negligence. This seemed odd and after further investigation she was helpless to help herself. Then I started to look a different ways to see this case and related it to paralysis, and then to a drug state. Several more remedies were given until I changed to a new repertization. Mind;Negligence, Paralysis, Mind;Detached; problems,from her.
After starting the remedy everything shifted for her. She claimed for the first time in her life she was able to see her world from a much different perspective. She said that she could see from the back of her head and beyond that to include a world she had never experienced. One that included herself. Looking back she made comments of not connecting to her feelings, and like there was a boundary that kept her back from focusing on the positive.
In a most recent case the client again had severe back pain. She made motions with her hands while talking that conveyed a barrier. She would start something and it would get stopped. She had a very protective mother and it played a part in her inability to move forward in life and release herself from the stuck-ness.
Another client again was unable to do anything to help herself. She was aware of her financial situation that was developing but unable to do anything about it. If the situation continues this way, she is sure to go to destitution. She knows this but is unable to do anything about it.
There is a disconnect from self in this remedy. It is like the person is wearing a condom over them that keeps their connection to self and the world apart. They are aware of their condition but are powerless to do anything about it. When you take latex in a sheet form and stretch it, it will stretch far and become almost transparent. It is like the person can view their life through this film but it is all viewed imperfectly.
The condom also provides a very good metaphor for the energy of the remedy. The condom is to protect from pregnancy by trapping the sperm. It is also to protect from getting disease or infection. This works both ways in the energy of the remedy. The person is unable to access their spiritual creative energy. The sperm is the holiest of substances and is the only thing that can penetrate the egg and create life. This is about releasing G-d’s creation. When it is blocked by the barrier of the latex the act of intercourse can not be fruitful. It then becomes an energy that is blocked to be the co-creator with G-d. It is a perfect metaphor for how the person needing Latex Vulcani is blocked from their ability to access their higher creative self and see their problem clearly. It is not really about seeing the problem though as it is about having the inability to do anything for themselves.

Hopefully this will help you the next time you have a case of someone who is unable to activate themselves to help them self. If any of you have any other comments about Latex Vulcani or cases that you have seen, please share them below.
