    An article I wrote On MIasms;
    Miasms - Understanding the Roots of Disease

    The symbol "<" means "worse from"
    The symbol ">" means "better from"
    In Hahnemann's words ,"the true natural chronic diseases are those that arise from a chronic miasm, when left to themselves, improper treatment, go on to increase, growing worse and torment the patient to the end of his life." - 78 Organon

    Hahnemann spent 12 years of his life investigating miasms, collecting proof these findings going unnoticed by others in the medical professions, "the chronic diseases" was written. He describes how using antipsoric medicines used on the psora miasm would enable a practitioner to cure effectively.
    The conditions that would modify a miasm in a persons body would be things like, climate and peculiar and physical character of the person it is in, mental delays, excesses, or abuses in life, in diet passions, habits and various customs.
    The medical profession (allopathic doctors) have put names on various diseases such as, jaundice, dropsy, leucorrhoea, hemorrhoids, eczema, asthma, lysteria, rheumatism, herpes, mania to name a few. Hahnemann considers all these based from the same beginnings. The medical profession treats each one on an individual basis with each a medical treatment. All these names have no use and no influence on the practice of the true physician.
    Only the totality of the signs of the individual state of each particular patient is used to cure the disease. So no real cure of miasms can take place without a strict particular treatment (individualization) of each case of disease. A difference between acute and chronic disease. Acute meaning starting suddenly, lasting for only a short amount of time. Chronic, a slow progression of imbalances being treated by allopathic suppressive medicines turning into further and further complications as the disease lasts and goes deeper into the human mind and physical body, even years go by without let-up. Chronic miasms are very hidden, the symptoms are much more difficult to be ascertained. Lots of questions need to be asked to trace the picture of disease. Questions about the history of one's family, mental delusions, dreams, peculiar symptoms.
    The miasms are: psora, sychosis, syphillis, and tuburcular. Psora, the mother of all diseases goes back the farthest in human history. Psora or "itch" is the monstrous internal chronic miasm, the only real fundamental cause and producer of all the other numerous forms of disease. (more on psora)
    Diseases with such allopathic names as: Convulsions, mania, imbecility,
    madness, epilepsy, scoliosis, cancer, gout, hemorrhage from nose, lungs,
    bladder, asthma, impotence, deafness, urinary calculus, defects of the senses and pains of thousands of kinds. Psora has passed on through hundreds of generations of people and has produced an innumerable variety of defects, injuries, derangements, and sufferings
    Physical expressions of the miasms
    The mind and body work together as a unit and the disturbances are
    expressed in both spheres.
    • A.- Psoric Miasm: reaction of body on exposure to environmental stimuli to ones surroundings like noise, light, and odors, producing functional disturbances like headache, nausea, and discomfort.
    • B.- Sycotic Miasm: hypersensitive response to something specific arising from a deficiency of the normal response like tumors, allergies, keloids. Deficient feeling gives rise to an increased attempt to repair the fault.
    • C.- Syphlitic Miasm: Not manageable, finding destruction like gangreen, ulceration. Body and mind destroy itself, give-up.
    • D.- Tuburcular Miasm: respiratory imbalance, weak lungs, offensive, headsweat, worse with exposure to cold, re-occurring epistaxis, bleeding gums, long eyelashes, craving for salt, enuresis, bleeding stools, milk disagrees causing diarrhea, anemic, weakness, ringworm, acne, white spots on nails, nightmares.
    Personality types
    • A.- Psoric Miasm: highs and lows, struggling with outside world, becomes apparent at times of stress, lack of confidence, constant anxiety feelings, fear, like he can't do it, insecurity, anxiety about the future but always having hope, mentally alert.
    • B.- Sycotic Miasms: secretiveness, hide his weakness, tense, constantly covering up situations, fixed habits, suspicious, jealous, forgetful.
    • C.- Syphlitic Miasm: strong pessimistic view on life, cannot modify what is wrong, give-up, destroy, no point in trying to adjust, sudden impulsive violence directed at himself or others, dictational rigid ideas. Mental paralysis, mentally dull, suicidal, stupid, stubborn, and homicidal.
    • D.-Tuburcular Miasm: dissatisfaction, lack of tolerance, changes everything, does harmful thing to one's self.
    General Nature of the Miasm
    • A.-Psoric Miasm- itching, burning, inflammation leading to congestion.- philosopher, selfish, restless, weak, fears.
    • B.-Sycotic Miasm: over production of growth like warts, condylomata, fibrous tissue, attack internal organs, pelvis, sexual organs.
    • C.-Syphlitic Miasm- destructive, disorder everywhere, ulceration, fissures, deformities, ignorance, suicidal, depressed, memory diminished.
    • D.-Tuburcular Miasm: changing symptomology, vague, weakness, shifting in location, depletion, dissatisfaction, lack of tolerance, careless "problem child", cravings that are not good for them.
    Dermatological Symptoms of the Miasms
    • A.-Psoric Miasm- dirty, dry, itching without pus or discharge, burning, scaly eruptions, eczema, cracks in hands and feet, sweat profuse < during sleep offensive.
    • B.-Sycotic Miasm- Warty, moles, unnatural thickening skin, herpes, scars, nails are thick and irregular---corrugated, oily skin with oozing, disturbed pigment in patches.

    Miasmetic Clinicals
    • A.-Psoric Miasm: Acidity, burning, cancer, sarcomas, constipation, epilepsy, flatulence, hoarseness, itching of skin, leprosy, burning of spinal cord, watery discharge from nose and eyes with burning

    The inheritance of the miasms is not genetic and actually takes place because the "vital force" of parents is tainted by such states. As observed with mother and father at time of conception. Miasms are seen to be transmitted to the offspring. It is not the pathology which shows the miasm but the state. The characteristics in that individual, keeping with the mental and physical state. The three together reflect the miasm. The mental = delusion and the physical = type of reaction. A disease state is usually a combination of miasms with it's main focus on one miasm,. It is important to percieve each miasmatic state of the remedy, in order to understand the disease state, because then we become aware of how a person perceives and react to his surroundings, how he perceives himself and how he reacts when things became unmanageable and stressful. We need to understand the remedy as how it's related to the miasm. This understanding comes from study of the symptoms both physical and mental. The understanding of the mental delusions of a particular miasm in a remedy. The delusion of that remedy must lie in that particular miasm.

    Example: Arsenic (syphlitic) despair of recovery, suicidal disposition, weakness, feels unloved, insecure
    Arsenic (psoric)"delusion sees theives"
    Arsenic (sycotic) cannot trust people, obsessive, compulsive
    There are only a few remedies that belong to one miasm : psora - psorinum, sycosis- medorrhinum, syphilis- syphilinum. To study one remedy "syphlinum" is to study a syphlitic miasm. Or a syphillis characteristic.
    Rubics- antisocial, abusive, indifferent to the future, hopeless despair of recovery, desperation, his efforts are lost of no use. The situation is beyond his capacity to salvage it, manic tendencies, manic religiousness,Manic washing hands, yet hopeless so compensates into antisocial behavior. "I don't care" attitude, mind goes slow/ paralyzed, desire to kill, all fascists, all anarchists and exploiters in history are the product of the syphlitic miasm, Napoleon, Chritopher Columbus, Aedie Amin, Hitler. Will reguard appropriate both the death of an individual, or an atom bomb explosion over an entire town. The pathologies are concerned with destruction, ulceration, poor reaction, it's as if the body and mind decided to destroy itself because it sees no hope. Syphilis itself is a taint which slowly destroys, with a difficult death. Syphilis in a mother's body shows itself in forms of habitual abortions. The fetus is already in a process of self-destruction. "I wish I had never been born". Once we can understand the miasmatic element in a person we can see the out come of the case with certainty.
    Why is it necessary for a homeopath to know the chronic miasms? Some might say as long as one prescribes according to the law of similia he cures his cases. The important factor here is "so long as he selects the most similar remedy as possible." The fact is, we cannot select the most similar remedy possible unless we understand the phenomena of the acting miasm.
    The true similia is always based on the existing miasm. It makes the difference between fighting the disease in the dark and in bright light when one knows the underlying principle that fathers the phenomena. If one has no knowledge of the laws of action and reaction, how can we watch the progress of a case without a definite knowledge of the disease forces (miasms) with their mysterious and persistant progressions. So, if we can know nothing aboutthe traits and characteristics of our enemy, it's impossible to wage war against the disease.
    Theses things Hahnemann wrote about in his theory of disease. The physician skilled in anti-miasmatic prescribing dips deeper into the case and applies an agent that has a deeper and closer relationship with the prevented life force. The results are always better. "The suffering of the immediate vital principle which animates the interior of our bodies, when it is morbidly disturbed, produces symptoms in the organism that are manifest"----Organon
    A knowledge of all miasmatic phenomena would be a complete knowledge of all that is known as disease. Hahnemann discovered the miasms due to the fact these ailments kept coming back, year after year. Even with the correct remedy given, still no permanent cure. Hahnemann's proof of the existence was the persistency of these chronic diseases considering, diet, hygiene, health still a come-back in the disease constantly repeating itself. They seem to come from within the organism itself, from some peculiar dynamis within,from something that was deranged. Within the life-force itself, inherent, internal, pre-existing within the dynamis. Hahnemann wrote in a footnote in "chronic diseases" about the third book of Moses (Leviticus) where the word psora is mentioned, given to eruptive diseases. The miasms run through our history from the beginnings. (Greek = psora = itch).
    When complicated suppressive drugs came about, the psora also became complicated. Drugs such as arsenic, quinine, mercury used to suppress ailments became used more frequently. Soon a more malignant manifestation presented itself in forms of epidemics. When a suppression took place in an organism with two or more miasms present, all conditions magnified and intensified.

        Well OK
        But consider the psoric miasm to be the longest lasting in history,from the first date of man till "now"-Statistics show aprox. 6 billion people on this planet as of today-So
        "smiling and Laughing...................." keeps the psoric miasm away?.....................Why dont you read my article and get back to me-there is more to this psoric miasm than you might think.................................

        While your at it please read Hahnemann's CHronic Diseases. I will find the link for you (on line book)

        Here is part of it:
        PSORA is that most ancient, most universal, most destructive, and yet most misapprehended chronic miasmatic disease which for many thousands of years has disfigured and tortured mankind, and which during the last centuries has become the mother of all the thousands of incredibly various (acute and) chronic (non-venereal) diseases, by which the whole civilized human race on the inhabited globe is being more and more afflicted.
        PSORA is the oldest miasmatic chronic disease known to us. just as tedious as syphilis and sycosis, and therefore not to be extinguished before the last breath of the longest human life, unless it is thoroughly cured, since not even the most robust constitution is able to destroy and extinguish it by its own proper strength, Psora, or the Itch disease, is beside this the oldest and most hydra-headed of all the chronic miasmatic diseases.

            Georg von Keller on Psora -- a true masterwork!

            The most important paper ever written on Hahnemann's failed Theory of Chronic Diseases (and believe me, there have been many true masterworks on the subject and hundreds of others worth reading) was Georg (sic) von Keller's ________. It speaks for itself.

              Dear Albert,

              Please explain? Are you of the opinion that Hahnemann's Theory of Chronic Disease was incorrect? If you are then in many minor respects, yes, I would agree- he was clearly struggling with a concept far beyond his time. But in terms of the fundamental theory, which I believe may be grossly misunderstood throughout our profession, Hahnemann is absolutely and irrefutably correct.

              I don't quite believe that our profession could have misunderstood this theory, it's just that nobody really seems to emphasise the fundamental point, which Hahnemann repeated again again throughout his work (on almost every page), specifically that chronic disease is a result of mismanagement [suppression] of certain (specific) more superficial disease manifestations; and that Hahnemann's fundamental theory has been obscured by the confused and somewhat bigoted writings of one James Tyler Kent. I would be interested to hear your views.

                  If Psora or other miasms are not the reason for inherited diseases like Autoimmune Thyroid Disease , Huntingdons Chorea etc do not exist how on earth can any Homeopath explain that generation after generation succumb to these disease when theres been no medications /intereference/suppresion of any kind made by the Allopaths or the patient themselves


                  • #10
                    I am reluctant to use the term miasm because (a) it means several things to different people and (b) Hahnemann never put forward a miasm theory - miasm was just a word in use at the time - the word miasm is a red herring IMO. The important message of his work is that medical mismanagement of superficial symptoms drives certain diseases inward and sets up a specific and recognisable chronic state.

                    This is an incredibly important observation because medical treatments have become increasingly effective at suppressing symptoms ever since Hahnemann's time. Today it would be almost impossible to make this connection, due to the widespread use of highly effective, highly suppressive medical treatments almost from birth.

                    As far as I am aware, Hahnemann never clearly stated his opinion on disease inheritance - he talks of Psora being contracted from the midwife at birth. But Kent observed many times that inherited Sycosis can be passed on through the father without ever affecting the mother, and so we know that once a chronic disease state exists, it can be passed on to subsequent generations, albeit in various forms.

                    The gene pool of the human race is severely weakened with each subsequent generation that is subjected to this kind of suppressive treatment. This explains why we now have so many bizarre and perverse manifestations of disease (auto-immune disease), that would never have appeared in a natural world, and would never have afflicted mankind if homeopathy had stood in its rightful place as the true science of medical therapeutics.

                    Inherited susceptibility to chronic disease exists due to the mismanagement (suppression) of specific superficial disease symptoms in an ancestor (the existence of a chronic miasm).

                      The word means "contagion" and miasmatic means "contagious," and ignorance of this is a major source of the ongoing confusion with the theory.

                              psora is simply another name for chronic diseases

                              Akram, your article begins with this:

                              Originally posted by Akram:

                              According to the philosophy of homeopathy[,] there are three miasms [ -- ] namely[,] Psora, Sycosis and Syphilis [ -- viz., psora, sycosis and syphilis -- ] that are responsible for chronic diseases.
                              That's commonly heard, but it turned out that psora is simply another name for chronic diseases, and you didn't later say that. The other two arise from infections. Hahnemann logically believed that all others must therefore also be from infectious causes, which he theorized as psora (a complex construct), but he was wrong. The fact that he pursued the theory for the rest of his life only demonstrates the scientific discipline, diligence and devotional love of Truth of the truly amazing man. More than any others, Hering did, too, and the same can thus also be said of him. Hering's main contribution to this effort was his shifting of emphasis to Psorinum as the hoped-for cure-all drug for all chronic diseases. It doesn't work like that, guys, and Hahnemann was instead right at the beginning of his work of developing homeopathy and homeotherapeutics: Chronic diseases are infinite in number and will never be seen in exactly the same way in any patient. He said that at least 25 times in THE LESSER WRITINGS (my favorite of his books [link: The Lesser Writings of Samuel Hahnemann - Google Book Search]) and twice in the ORGANON (link: Hahnemann's Organon).

                              The rest of the article doesn't need attention until you fix that mistake, sir.

                              I want to point out an enigma and inconsistency in this theory that I never read about. His first cures were of malaria. It's also contagious and passes into chronic sequel, so why didn't he add it to his list? I have no idea and have never read anyone even mention this enigma and inconsistency. Anybody know?
