About Miasms

What are miasms?

Miasms are energetic tendencies that predispose individuals toward manifesting particular illnesses. Most are either inherited or acquired during the course of a person’s lifetime. Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, discovered miasms by painstakingly studying the personal and family histories of those who failed to respond to his constitutional remedies, or who quickly relapsed. He realized that the presence of certain diseases caused blocks to his patients’ health. He called these blocks “miasms” and defined three of them during his lifetime. Homeopaths have since added more. Inherited miasms represent an energetic pathway by which events in the life of a parent can be transmitted to their offspring. Generations can go by before illness from a miasm is made manifest. Acquired miasms may be caused by exposure to a variety of noxious agents including bacteria, viruses, toxic chemicals and even radiation.

What do miasms do?

Hahnemann believed miasms were the root causes of all chronic diseases and a contributing factor to many acute illnesses. In the body miasms act like enemies entrenched: attacking all the weak points, receding and advancing, never seeming to tire or lessen. They are blocks to health and stop remedies from working. Because miasms are so toxic to the body, it is necessary to eliminate them from DNA. Many of the body’s systems affected by miasms contain potential sites of spreading infection during active periods of disease. Despite a decline of the primary infection and “cure” of the illness by antibiotics, vibrational affliction continues beneath the surface. These disease-associated energy traces are incorporated into an individual’s biomagnetic field and higher subtle bodies. Miasms reside there until their latent toxic potential is released into the cellular level of the body, where illness can manifest.

How do you get rid of miasms?

Homeopathic remedies are used to help the body get rid of miasms. Flower essences can also help by creating a clear state of consciousness in the individual that weakens miasms and allows the miasmic energies to be eliminated from the body. What are the different kinds of miasms? There are five main categories of miasms: Psorinum is delineated from psora and/or tuberculosis; Sycosis is delineated from gonorrhea; Syphilinum is delineated from syphilis; Syphilinum/Sycosis is delineated from a combination of syphilis and gonorrhea; and Carcinosii is delineated from cancer. Each is contracted through DNA, and many are hundreds of years old—passed down from relatives who once had the disease that generated the miasm. This means that the appearance of Syphilinum during a CEDSA screening or Health Analysis means the miasm is present in that individual, not the disease.

Damage Caused by Miasms:

A miasm’s presence is not limited to genes, but it “manifests into the core DNA of a cell” and is caused by “varieties of noxious agents, bacterium, viruses, toxic chemicals, and even radiation.” (Richard Gerber, Vibrational Medicine)

Psorinum- Psora and/or Tuberculosis Miasm

  • Chronic diseases
  • Cancer
  • Allergies and sinus issues
  • Skin issues: rashes, eczema, psoriasis, etc.
  • Respiratory issues: asthma, chronic cough, breathlessness and general breathing issues
  • Mental illnesses
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and other gastro-intestinal or digestion issues
  • Pancreatic conditions, diabetes, gallbladder issues

Sycosis-Gonorrhea miasm

  • Urinary disorders and weakness

  • Sexual dysfunctions and diseases
  • Joint and mucus membrane irritations, sinus conditions
  • Skin tags, moles, warts, cysts, tumors, etc.
  • Excessive growths
  • Hyperactivity of endocrine system and all organs

Syphilinum-Syphilis miasm

  • Can deform everything in the body. Examples: spoon-shaped nails, light sensitivities, eye deformities and diseases, enlarged head, baldness, intestinal disorders, skin eruptions, teeth issues, high blood pressure, nose issues, mental diseases, emotional issues, and many more.

Syphilinum/Sycosis-Syphilis and Gonorrhea miasm combined

  • Slows things down, cellular
  • Affects the nervous system
  • Affects blood
  • Muscle skeletal disorders
  • Psychological disorders
  • Autism, LD
  • Causes tics, seizures, MS, MD, Alzheimer’s and other debilitating diseases


Carcinosii Miasm-Cancer miasm

  • Cancer and related disorders

 *If you have some of these issues, it does not mean you have a miasm! Many of these symptoms and conditions can be caused by other things as well as miasms. To be certain that you have a miasm, you need to be checked electrodermally.
