Miasms

In this day of DNA mapping and modern thought on genetic hi-tech treatments in our near future it turns out that homeopathy has always been capable of affecting our inherited weaknesses to bring us closer to health. I am proud to say that Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, developed the theory of Miasms way back in the early 1800s. Miasms refer to an inherited weakened state that allows susceptibility to many chronic diseases. Hahnemann found that unless these inherited miasms were addressed the chronic diseases of his patients would not be cured.

His premise was that we are each born with patterns predisposing us to illness and health based upon our ancestors and back and back to man’s beginning. This theory was before its time then (just as were his theory of “like cures like” which was taken for the development of immunizations by his contemporary Louis Pasteur – of course, ironically, Homeopathic philosophy teaches that immunizations can be detrimental to the health.)

According to Hahnemann, all disease can be traced to the three basic miasms: Psora (the itch), Syphilis and Sycosis (Gonorrhea). I used to be embarrassed about Hahnemann’s Miasmatic theory because it seemed too far out – but in the light of today’s thought on genetics it seems right on the mark. Also, Hahnemann taught that suppression of disease is partly the cause of it becoming part of the genetic code – so it might be that we are creating new miasms through the rampant suppressive treatments in modern medicine.

The complete homeopathic approach to any chronic illness includes an analysis of what miasms are manifesting in the body and then addressing this with a remedy similar to the symptoms as well as one which is known to be curative for the miasm. An experienced practitioner, very devoted to this science and to your health would be essential for this process to be ultimately curative. The potential of Homeopathy holds promise for our future generations, and the world’s health.

Miasms – Psora

In the last issue of HomeopathiCare News – April / May 2003 – a series of articles was started to explain the concept of miasms. The miasms that we inherit do not always lead to specific diseases but more often to constitutional states that affect the way we manifest or experience disease.

Psora is considered the mother miasm and has been called “the internal itch disease”. It may be that all humans have inherited this miasm, which probably started in prehistoric times as a result of continuing suppression of a primordial skin disease. Psora is the primary, underlying weakened (deficient) state which allows susceptibility to many chronic diseases and to the other two miasms.

Hahnemann theorized that 70% of chronic disease has psora at its root. The ailments that arise in a psoric person are rarely life threatening but are very annoying and draining functional states which tie them down, weaken and limit the body – like allergies, eczema, acne, candidiasis, psoriasis, headache, asthma, ear infections, colds, endocrine problems, fatigue and poor digestion. There are also characteristic psoric mental symptoms namely – anxiety, timidity, fears, depression and inhibitions. All symptoms reflect deficiency, weakness, and limitation.

When a homeopath can see that chronic, inherited factors are causing a patient’s health problems she will use miasmatic treatment to alter and improve the underlying state. When the skin is itchy, erupting and unhealthy it is always best NOT to suppress with external drug applications but rather to work from the inside to strengthen the vital force.

The remedies known to be helpful in psora are Sulphur, Calcarea Carb, Arsenicum Album, Silica, the Natrums, Amazon listing optimization, the Kalis and MANY more. The psora nosode (remedy made from disease) is Psorinum. The remedy chosen based on the Law of Similars is the best remedy in every case.

Miasms – Sycosis

Sycosis is the second of the three dominant miasms (inherited tendencies to disease) which Samuel Hahnemann theorized as the causes of chronic disease. The word sycosis means “fig-wart disease”. Our ancestors who contracted gonorrhea were treated with ineffectual and / or suppressive drugs – driving the disease inward – and then they spread it in a secondary form to their wives. The children and grandchildren inherit sycosis, not gonorrhea, and now a good percentage of the world’s population experiences disease in a way which reflects the constitutional taint of sycosis.

People with the sycotic miasm manifest symptoms of overgrowth or proliferation of tissue-like warts, tumors, enlarged organs, cysts, and obesity. They also manifest problems in the reproductive organs, have excess mucus, and mental emotional traits which include irritability, restlessness, selfishness, hurriedness, suspiciousness, immorality and absentmindedness. They are worse from suppression of discharges and from cold, wet weather. Reactions from vaccinations bring out tendencies to sycosis.

The main remedies used to balance the sycotic miasm are Thuja, Natrum Sulph, and Nitric Acid and the nosode (remedy made from disease – in this case gonorrhea) is called Medorrhinum.

A professional homeopath is the best one to analyze your constitution to decide which miasms are predominant and to create a plan for treatment. It is always good to be an educated consumer. The info you share with your homeopath is what will lead her to the right remedy. Physical characteristics like body build, bone structure, and teeth, skin and hair types are also used to decide your miasmatic typology.

Miasms – Syphilitic Miasm

The third main miasm (inherited tendency to disease pattern) is called the syphilitic miasm and stems from our ancestors contact with syphilis, and possibly the disease’s subsequent suppression with drugs. The syphilitic miasm is known for its destructive and degenerative force on the body, i.e., ulcers, cancer that eats away at the body, joint disease which erodes the joint. Congenital deformities are attributed to this miasm. The mental pattern is more extreme than the other two miasms, (psora and sycosis) and includes alcoholism, violence, cruelty, suicide, and deviance. The fears and depressions are stronger and deeper than the other miasms also.

The remedies known to counter the syphilitic miasm are Syphilinum (the nosode made from the disease), all of the Mercury remedies, Aurum remedies, Nitric Acid and many more.

A professional homeopath is well versed at treating the whole person, taking the miasmatic tendencies into account, and attempts to clear these constitutional patterns that dictate how one experiences disease. When a couple chooses to begin parenting children, an ideal scenario is to seek homeopathic treatment before conception so that children’s health and future generations are healthier.

Mommy!! They’re after me! Waah! Can I come in your bed? I had a bad dream. Every parent knows this plea from a child after they’ve had a nightmare and we wish that we could prevent any more frightful dreams.

“No Mom, I just can’t go to school today—we’re each supposed to do our big book report in front of the class and I know I’ll mess up. Besides, I have a stomach ache.” The fear of public speaking or tests can be devastating to some school children’s wellness. Does a child have to go through this stress un-aided?

Homeopathy offers some healthy and gentle ways to help your child cope with stresses as they go through the ups and downs of life. Let’s look at some of the ways you can help your child in acute emotional upsets.

So, one of the biggest questions people have about melatonin is probably: does melatonin actually work? Have their been any clinical studies to show that buying melatonin will actually result in a person getting more or better quality sleep? Well, yes.

Melatonin does work and it is effective, even on reducing snoring. In fact, in trials melatonin decreased sleep onset latency in people with a primary sleep disorder. Sleep Onset Latency was decreased greatly in people with delayed sleep phase syndrome.

The magnitude of this effect appears to be clinically significant. Additionally, Sleep Onset Latency was decreased marginally in patients with insomnia.

Melatonin and Weight Loss

About 12 years ago I was pretty lean. In fact, I was medically underweight. But I felt fit, great, healthy and had absolutely no issues at all regarding my weight and general all round health. This is because I had a physically demanding job and working outdoors all day, keeping active for 8 hours just to perform my work meant weight gain was never something I ever thought I’d have to worry about. Then my job changed. I went from having an active, but low paying, job to sitting behind a desk. Those 8 hours I used to spend on the go, I now spent sitting on my behind and the weight just piled on. Further to that, the new desk job was a lot more stressful and I got far less sleep.I believe this caused a vicious cycle.

1) I was less active and more stressed

2) When I went to bed I had so much on my mind and had done hardly anything to burn calories.

After a while of just feeling more tired every morning, I needed to take action.

I did start to exercise and I did start to take melatonin to help me sleep.

The difference was immediate.

The fact that I was finally able to get up in a morning after a good night’s sleep gave me more energy to do some exercise first thing and I ended up losing more than a stone following this relatively minor lifestyle change.

Did melatonin directly make weight come off? No.

Did melatonin massively help me lose weight? Absolutely!!

Alternatives to Melatonin

Melatonin is famed as an effective, natural sleep aid. I’ve actually used it myself for quite a few years. I always used to get really worried that my reliance on melatonin to help me get to sleep would eventually lead to the effects becoming less and less powerful. And, sadly, I was right. Thing is though, melatonin isn’t the only natural sleeping aid in town…in fact, it’s not even the MOST EFFECTIVE SLEEP AID on the block! It’s still the ultimate in non-side effect, natural sleeping aid, but it works well in combination with other natural elements.

Dr Backhaus Natural Sleep Aid is made with Melatonin and other natural ingredients.

As we now, Melatonin works with our own bodies and helps to support and promote natural, relaxing sleep.

Dr Backhaus is a product that I tried when I simply couldn’t get any melatonin – and also because I was able to get it with a free trial (yes, that helped lol!)

It’s combined with natural herbs to encourage relaxation.

Melatonin for Sleep

I have used various sleep aids on off for the past decade. Melatonin for sleep is easily and comfortably the best. I’ll explain why. I purchased melatonin after I’d tried sleeping pills my doctor gave me. The sleeping pills made me sleep but I felt like hell in the mornings. To the point where I wished I hadn’t even been asleep at all. I was wiped out.

I would wake up with copper taste in my mouth, I’d feel even more tired and all in all, the sleeping tablets made me feel unconscious rather ‘asleep’.

So a friend of mine (who is in a band believe it or not , travels the world a lot) recommended I buy melatonin in the uk for my sleep problems.

Brilliant advice!

I purchased some melatonin supplements online but not from a UK site – it was really hard to find from a legitimate UK supplier. You can buy melatonin from a full host of companies in the States.

So I was worried in the first place about what I was actually getting.

Eventually I got my order of melatonin tablets and tried a pill.

Did I sleep?

LIKE A BABY!!

Not only did I get genuine, peaceful, restful sleep I did not have a single one of the sleep side effects that the other sleeping pills had given me.

I have since used melatonin whenever I’ve felt the need and I have to say, it’s a real life saver.

There is nothing worse than tossing and turning without being able to get to sleep. With the melatonin in my bedside cabinet, I sometimes take alons side the melatonin some hemp oil from the UK. These two products I would swallow with a swig of water and just wait for the sleep to come. It ALWAYS does!

The human body has its biological clock that helps it function smoothly. This mechanism or circadian rhythm instructs the body to rest. Meaning, the brain center, or the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN) sends a signal to pineal glands, which in turn begin the secretion of melatonin, or the sleep hormone.

Circulation of this hormone in the bloodstream induces the human body to get drowsy during nightfall. Pineal glands continue producing this hormone till sunrise. Exposure to daylight finally signals the brain center to stop secreting melatonin.

But, there are a few causes that lead to a fall in natural melatonin secretion. The primary culprit being, hectic work schedule, which leads to sleeplessness, or insomnia, disturbing the circadian rhythm.

This is why people need a little external aid in the form of herbal supplements of the hormone. Though these pills aren’t a quick-fix solution to insomnia, yet, they have a host of far-reaching benefits for the human body:

Melatonin, also widely termed as N-acetyl-5 methoxy tryptamine, acts the natural pacemaker for the human body. This hormone is produced in the pineal gland, which is situated in the centre of the brain.

The release of this hormone follows a precise rhythm. Night-time melatonin circulation levels are ten times of that during the daytime.

Not only that, melatonin circulation varies according to seasons as well. During autumn and winter, this hormone is secreted in large amounts, while the secretion reduces during spring and summer. One reason why melatonin secretion varies seasonally is attributed to the changing lengths of days and nights. Autumn and winter have longer nights than spring and summer. Therefore, the amounts of secretion of the hormone vary accordingly.

In other words, the secretion of the hormone depends a lot on the levels of light in one’s surroundings. The Suprachiasmatic Nuclei (SCN) in the brain centre drive the production sync. It is a reduction of light levels during the evening that tells pineal glands to perform their function of melatonin secretion.

Therefore, it is always advisable to keep light levels lowered during the night. Any fluctuation in these levels might lead to a disruption in the biological clock. Such disruption, in turn, ends up affecting regular human sleep schedule.

Melatonin is a hormone secreted from the pineal gland. It was discovered in 1958. A professor from Yale University and his colleagues were researching. It was performed to find the cure for skin disorders. This research revolved around compounds present in the gland. Thus, they found Melatonin. It was tested on cows with success.

Melatonin is a hormone that human brain produces. The pineal gland situated above the cerebellum in the brain is the source for Melatonin.

Regulation of Melatonin production follows solar timing. With the sun setting, brain signals the gland to secrete Melatonin. When the night darkens, its level increases. This induces a person to deep sleep by midnight. It is the reason we get sound sleep during night.

Melatonin is the natural sleep aid renowned throughout the world – but can it help to cure snoring?

Apart from dreaming and frequent movements during the night, snoring is one of the activities that human body creates even when in deep sleep. It is a dysfunction in the body that is caused by certain mechanisms that seem to collide when the body is at its most relaxed state.

The muscles in the throat may partially close the air passage when they have become too relaxed. This obstruction coupled with the drive of wind that runs through this passage will result to vibrations we commonly know as snores.

Natural remedies for snoring are effective means of finding solutions. However, it must be considered that not all remedies can be very effective for all sorts of snoring causes. Thus, careful evaluation must be done before any assumption is made.

Before we look at whether melatonin can cure snoring, let’s explore some other natural remedies.

Can melatonin uk actually help people who snore?

Snoring is the noise produced through vibrating throat components. This occurs only during sleep since this is when our muscles are most relaxed. Relaxation of the muscles can inhibit the passage of normal airflow since the muscles fall back to cause blockage, narrowing the passage itself.

Remedies for snoring require careful studies on the related factors that either aggravate the condition or cause the condition itself. Once the roots are known, the growth of the problems can then be stopped. 2 links that we actively promote where you can buy melatonin in the uk.

Weight

Because of sedentary life, physiological problems and too rich foods, people are more susceptible to developing conditions that lead to snores. It has been a common knowledge that overweight people are most likely to snore than the healthier ones. This is because their throats tend to be fleshier. Thus, there are more blockages that can narrow the air passages. To reverse this, overweight sufferers are advised to reduce some weights, this does not only add to the comfort but will also reduce the likelihood of snoring more intensely.
