Those who need Thuja occidentalis struggle with self-confidence: they feel worthless and unattractive, and believe that nobody would love them if they knew what they were really like. As a result, they become desperate to ‘fit in’ and hide behind a manufactured persona to present to others as a cover for their perceived shortcomings.

Those who need Thuja occidentalis may either crave, dislike, or be affected by onions, and sometimes, garlic. They also desire tea, are affected by cold, wet weather, and discharges (pus, mucus) will be yellow-green or green. The urogenital and skin are the most often affected areas of the body but symptoms in general tend to be worse on the left side. Other distinctive symptoms include pains being felt in “small spots” and chronic complaints improving during head colds.
