Miasms: Fundamental Cause of Diseases

In homeopathy, the theory of miasms originates in Hahnemann's book 'The Chronic Disease' which was published in 1828. 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.

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
