What is Mixed Maismatic Disease in Homeopathy?

Psoric miasms are the most ancient miasm that has penetrated several constitutions and passed through several generations. Everyone on this earth is infected by this miasm. Psora produces functional disorders. The structural, especially extensive structural changes and pathological abnormalities result when psora combines with other two miasms, leading to the formation of complex disease.

Due to such combinations, the advancement of disease occurs. But the manifestations in the majority of cases will be limited to one miasm only, which we in our practice call the dominant miasm. According to the chronic disease, after the initial anti-psoric treatment the dominant miasm has to be treated with the appropriate remedy. The most complicated pathological states are the result of the effects of mixed miasms. Example: Cancer and Psoriasis.

The dominant miasm for this state has to be identified with the help of its miasmatic indications, exhibited by the patient. The anti-miasmatic remedy to that dominant miasm has to be administered. This remedy will remove the symptoms pertaining to the dominant miasm. Several anti-miasmatic remedies in succession [one after the other] have to be administered according to the then existing totality of symptoms. Finally, the anti-psoric treatment has to be given to complete the cure.

In this Dr. H.A.Roberts says,

“In treating the combined stigmata, the most outstanding must be treated first, since we base our method of treatment upon symptom similarity, where psora is present, psora will be the most outstanding in the symptom totality in the earlier manifestations. These manifestations must be treated first, then after it is eradicated or considerably lessened, the next most potent dyscrasia, as it expresses itself in the symptomatology must be treated, until this way, each time treating the most dominant stigma, as expressed by the outward manifestations, until cure is attained.“Pathological developments very rarely take place under a purely psoric manifestations, it is only when this taint is united with another stigma that pathological conditions arise.”

Another important mixed miasmatic condition is the Tubercular miasm. The tubercular patient is manifesting the union of the syphilitic and the psoric dyscrasias. It is also called the Pseudo-psora. In the combinations of sycosis and psora, we get the right soil for valvular and cardiac disturbances with changes in the organic structure. These are the conditions that cause fatalities.

Treatment of Mixed Miasmatic States

1. Psora-syphilis (tubercular miasm or Pseudo-psora):

i. The anti-psoric treatment has to be given based on the dominant symptoms of psora, according to symptom similarity.

ii. Once the psoric symptoms have been removed or controlled, the suitable anti-syphilitic remedy has to be administered again based on symptoms similarity.

iii. Anti-psoric treatment has to be started again to complete the cure.

2. Psora-sycosis:

i. The anti-psoric treatment has to be given based on the dominant symptoms of the psora according to symptom similarity.

ii. Once the psoric symptoms have been removed or controlled, the suitable anti-sycotic remedy has to be administered again based on the similarity of the symptoms.

iii. Anti-psoric treatment has to be prescribed again to complete the cure.

3. Psora-syphilis-sycosis:

i. The anti-psoric treatment has to be given based on dominant symptoms of the psora, according to symptom similarity.

ii. As a next step, one of the most predominant miasm out of the two remaining has to be treated first with suitable anti-miasmatic remedies.

iii. The anti-psoric treatment may be administered if the symptoms of psora remain predominant.

iv. The remaining symptoms of sycosis and syphilis can be treated with suitable anti-sycotic and anti-syphilitic remedies by administering them one after another.

v. In the end, once again anti-psoric treatment has to be prescribed to complete the cure. Hence, treatment of mixed miasmatic diseases is like removing the layers of onions one after another. Hahnemann called this method the treatment in succession.
