Aizoales

Taxonomy
In the Caryophyllales several subgroups can be distinguished. One is the monophyletic clade with Aizoaceae, Nyctaginaceae and Phytolaccaceae.
In the Plant theory the above clade is given the name Aizoales. Aizoales is placed in Phase 2 of the Caryophyllidae. The division in Subphases is tentative as only Aizoaceae, Nyctaginaceae and Phytolaccaceae are known in homeopathy.

Introduction
They have a tendency to give a lot in order to be accepted. They want to belong to the group, the family and in order to do so they have a tendency to adapt, to give in. Because they are highly sensitive they accurately feel what the others want and need and can easily adapt to that. It is only when they feel placed outside of the group that they can become angry. It feels like a basic need of life to be accepted but it is difficult for them to feel completely accepted as their inner life is often felt as peculiar and strange. They feel weird in a strange world. They feel very religious, a connection with the spiritual world and God and that connection is often not very well accepted in society. Due to their inner convictions they can get in conflict with society. Mostly their solution is to keep their opinions and feelings to themselves; they prefer to avoid the conflicts. They hope to be be able to stay with their own inner convictions and that they will not be forced into conflicts about them.
