Hahnemann realised that his concept of miasms would cause difficulty for homeopaths. Yet he could scarcely have imagined that it would still not be properly understood two hundred years later.
John Saxton from Britain has devised an original way of conveying the key fundamentals of the concept of miasms as well as the serious misunderstandings that have led to misinterpretation or even rejection of Hahnemann‘s crucial discovery: miasms are neither the effects of specific infectious diseases nor are they due to unspecified influences. Instead, they are concrete physiological reaction patterns of regulation (psora), structure (sycosis) and degradation (syphilis) or mixtures of these (tubercular and cancer). He clearly elaborates how modern theories of miasm are based on such misconceptions or how they have taken quite a different approach (Sankaran), which explains the major contradictions of the various models.
Several cases from his veterinary practice clarify practical application of the miasmatic approach in specific cases (dog – pruritus – Thuja – Sulphur; dog – attacks of prostatitis – Medhorrinum; cat – hyperplasia of mouth – Thuja; dog – chronic degenerative myelopathy – Syphilinum). With his humorous approach, he succeeds in presenting the rather dry materia medica of the miasmatic nosodes (Psorinum, Medorrhinum, Syphilinum, Tuberculinum/Bacillinum, Carcinosinum/Scirrhinum) in a fascinating way by continually referring to how the remedies are expressed in animals. Along the way he also describes the use of the bowel nosodes and their miasmatic relevance.
After watching this lively seminar, everyone should be able to easily grasp the meaning of Hahnemann‘s concept of miasms for the effective healing of chronic illness and understand how to straightforwardly use this in daily practice. A presentation that will be of great interest to both vets and doctors treating humans.
