The article describes a case with consecutive prescriptions of three remedies from the mineral, animal and plant kingdoms. The three remedies, Magnesia muriatica, Lac caninum and Cucurbita pepo have similar themes of orphanage, being abandoned, offended and others. However, they are expressed differently, which shows in the case, with the accent changing towards a certain kingdom.

During the curative process the patient finds ways to solve her family and relationship problems characteristic for the Silica Series, and the accent of the case moves to a different series and another kingdom.
