Sycotic Miasm – Understanding the Miasmatic Symptoms

Dr. Kent, in his lecture mentions about the drawback of prescribing based only on the totality of the symptoms without considering the underlying miasms. Sycosis is the most insidious, dangerous and the main theme is ‘excess’.

The first symptoms after suppression usually appear in anaemia and inflammatory conditions of any part of the body. There is over-growth of tissues causing warts, deposits in joints, thickening of skin and nails.

The basic trait of sycosis miasm is confused mentally and physically. This emits in his reactions:

  • Reacts after a long time with a pause between action and reaction
  • Reacts in a way which is harmful to himself
  • No reaction at all
  • Repression of emotions
Sycotic Miasm
Personality or temperament of sycotic miasm:

Secretive, jealous, anger, irritability, rage, hurt.

Anger and irritability is a very strong quality in sycotic children. Children are easily angered or irritated without any reason, but they find it very difficult to express these emotions. Instead, they keep on thinking about such incidences constantly, and build up hard feelings against all those who have hurt them or troubled them in any way.

Sensitivity and susceptibility of sycotic children are low to moderate. Person suffering from autoimmune disorders, psychosomatic disorders, migraine, bronchial asthma, obesity, etc. are all sycotic responses.
