PLATINUM METALLICUM (Plat.) پلاٹینا پلاٹینم میٹالیکم
In Platina we see excessive sexuality to the point of nymphomania. We see the inflated, enlarged ego which usually takes two directions: if the sexuality is suppressed, the person is mentally inflated and shows egotism, pride and haughtiness to the pathological extent that they can feel they’re someone important (king, queen) or if the sexuality is expressed and released we don’t see the haughtiness so much.
On the physical level there is predisposition to enlargements and tumors of the genital system.
