Remedy profile:
Bottled up emotions and anger. People that are sensitive to offence. They are easily offended by rudeness in others but are mostly very rude themselves. Particularly anger is bottled up making them brood even though they appear mild and compliant. They find it hard to say no but resent and are angered by being "forced" to do something. This anger then turns into a deep resentment.
Physically they are very sensitive to pain (a low pain threshold) and perspire when nervous or stressed.
