Miasms

The theory of miasms originates in the founder of Homeopathy, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann's book The Chronic Diseases which was published in 1828.

Dr. Hahnemann declared that the theory was the result of 12 years of the most painstaking work on difficult cases of a chronic character combined with his own historical research into the diseases of man. The three miasms given in that work are held to be responsible for all disease of a chronic nature and to form the foundation or basis for all disease in general.

The word miasm means a cloud or fog in the being. The theory suggests that if 100% of all disease is miasmatic, then 85% is due to the primary and atavistic miasm Hahnemann called Psora. The remaining 15% of all disease he held to be either syphilitic or sycotic, being derived from suppressed Syphilis or suppressed Gonorrhoea

The Miasm of SYCOSIS

This miasm is held to be responsible for many sexual and urinary disorders, and affections of the joints and the mucous membranes.

Arthritis and rheumatism, asthma, catarrhs, bronchitis, cystitis and warts are all regarded as partly or mainly sycotic in character.

The wart came to be seen as the underlying archetype of this miasm as it is also held to be responsible for all warty excrescences and growths.

Chief remedies are:

•  Thuja

•  Lycopodium

•  Natrum sulph

•  Causticum

•  Kali sulph

•  Staphysagria

•  Calc

•  Sepia

 

The Miasm of SYPHILIS

This miasm is held to be responsible for many diseases of the nervous system, the blood and skeleton as well as a range of psychological disorders, including alcoholism, depression, suicidal impulses, insanity, loss of smell and taste, blindness, deafness and ulcerations.

It is also associated with many heart conditions, some vesicular skin eruptions and diseases that have a definite nocturnal periodicity.

Chief remedies are:

•  Arsenicum

•  Aurum

•  Mercury

•  Phosphorus

•  Lycopodium

•  Nitric acid

 

The Miasm of PSORA

The word Psora is derived from the Hebrew 'Tsorat' and Greek 'Psora' and means a groove or stigma.

Dr. Hahnemann held that all non venereal chronic diseases are Psoric. That includes most diseases of a chronic nature, all skin diseases, most mental illness other than syphilitic ones, allergies, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, most dysfunctional diseases of organs and systems, etc.

He lists among others, catarrhs, asthma, pleurisy, haemoptysis, hydrocephalus, stomach ulcers, scrotal swelling, jaundice, swollen glands, cataract, diabetes, tuberculosis, epilepsy, fevers and suppressed urine as all being typically psoric manifestations. And of course all skin problems.

Chief Psoric remedies are:

•  Sulphur

•  Natrum mur

•  Calc carb

•  Arsen alb

•  Lycopodium

•  Phosphorus

•  Mezereum

•  Graphites

•  Causticum

•  Hepar sulph

•  Petroleum

•  Silica

•  Zinc

•  Psorinum

 

Note:

Since the 1950's it has been claimed that Tuberculosis and Cancer have developed into new miasms in their own right, most probably as offshoots of what Hahnemann termed the 'Hydra headed Psora miasm' (The Chronic Diseases, p14).
