The rickets can also be called raquitism in Latin languages.

Contrary to what happens with Small stature syndrome (nanism), the rickets symptom is not felt at birth, and it only manifests itself during childhood or adolescence. This is a problem related to emotional sub-nutrition. This is lack of love and safety. It is important to look at the family atmosphere the child grew up in.

Sufferers often have problems with exposure to sunlight. The problems the child faces are connected to his biological Father and Mother. Growth-related problems are very much linked to the endocrine system. Two glands are involved in the person’s balanced growth: the thyroid and the thymus.

If a child is convinced that there is no point in growing up, the body will show him his tension from a physical perspective. And he will not grow up. Why should a child be convinced there is no point growing up? There could be various reasons, but they all point to the parents.

The thymus plays a very important role in the child’s development, up to adolescence. It is involved in growth and in metabolism, as well as in the child’s immunity. The memory of human beings is located in the thymus, and this memory is impregnated with the experiences the child has had in his life and with his parents (mostly with his parents), as well as with the man and woman models that he has met throughout his life. The child comes to the conclusion that: “If adults are like this, then I do not want to grow up.” The conflict is silent and profound. This is the form the child has found to immunize himself from his parents.

The thyroid is an essentially feminine gland. It regulates the entire metabolism of the body, growth, weight, and the body’s full harmony.

It reveals the person’s capacity to express himself and to make himself understood. It is in the thyroid that the body shows the person’s calculating attitude, as he learnt when to speak up and when to shut up. And the child who is not allowed to speak up, or who has realized that no one has made (or will make) any effort to understand him, gives up on himself, gives up on accelerating his own metabolism and stops it. Consequently, growth does not take place. The tension the body exposes is: “I cannot create my own space in this adult world. It is not worth growing up. I do not want to be like them.
