Miasms And Disease

R B Homeopathic Services

In 1828, Hahnemann introduced the concept of "miasms"; underlying causes for many known diseases.A miasm is often defined by homeopaths as an imputed "peculiar morbid derangement of [the] vital force".Hahnemann associated each miasm with specific diseases, with each miasm seen as the root cause of several diseases. According to Hahnemann, initial exposure to miasms causes local symptoms, such as skin or venereal diseases, but if these symptoms are suppressed by medication, the cause goes deeper and begins to manifest itself as diseases of the internal organs.Homeopathy maintains that treating diseases by directly opposing their symptoms, as is sometimes done in conventional medicine, is ineffective because all "disease can generally be traced to some latent, deep-seated, underlying chronic, or inherited tendency".The underlying imputed miasm still remains, and deep-seated ailments can be corrected only by removing the deeper disturbance of the vital force.

Hahnemann originally presented only three miasms, of which the most important was psora (Greek for "itch"), described as being related to any itching diseases of the skin, supposed to be derived from suppressed scabies, and claimed to be the foundation of many further disease conditions. Hahnemann believed psora to be the cause of such diseases as epilepsy, cancer, jaundice, deafness, andcataracts. Since Hahnemann's time, other miasms have been proposed, some replacing one or more of psora's proposed functions, including tuberculosis and cancer miasms.This conflicts with scientific studies, which indicated penicillin treatment produces a complete cure of syphilis in more than 90% of cases.Campbell described this as "a thoroughly irresponsible statement that could mislead an unfortunate layman into refusing orthodox treatment".

The theory of miasms has been criticized as an explanation developed by Hahnemann to preserve the system of Homeopathy in the face of treatment failures, and for being inadequate to cover the many hundreds of sorts of diseases, as well as for failing to explain disease predispositions, as well as genetics, environmental factors, and the unique disease history of each patient.

Research increasingly shows that the lifestyle choices that people make can have a major effect on how they cope and recover from illness . Right choices at every stage of your life is journey to better health. Why, when a group of people are exposed to the same common cold virus, do some individuals suffer a raging throat and streaming nose while others have mild symptoms or are totally unaffected? There are no simple answers to these questions: genes , environment and lifestyle all play a part - and each affects the other in its own ways.

While we have little control over some factors, such as our genes and environment there is much we can do to influence how our bodies respond, for example, to infection, trauma and potential allergens. We can also learn to deal with our emotions to protect our mental health.

According to Cancer Research UK, up to half of cancers could be prevented by lifestyle changes. Emerging research shows that the same kind of changes - avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, eating healthily and exercising - can also affect survival rates in people who have already developed the disease. And according to INTERHEART, (2004) study, as many as 90 per cent of first heart attacks could be prevented by lifestyle changes. Even people with genetic predisposition to a particular illness should not assume that the outcome is inevitable.

Families with history of heart disease once believed that nothing could be done to prevent successive generations succumbing to this condition, often dying prematurely. But today those with raised cholesterol can slash the chances of heart attack by taking appropriate medication, improving their diet and increasing the amount of exercise they take and they should take.

Disease prevention rightly commands massive attention. But until we can protect against every illness - an unlikely achievement - we need to continue to focus on boosting our chances of recovery. Doctors hold some of the keys to that process but many others are in our own hands - known collectively as the "four pillars of health".
  1. Attitude - Counts
  2. Diet - Repairs.
  3. Exercise - Strengthens.
  4. Sleep - Heals.

Further details on this will be posted in few days.
