Sycosis Miasm

Sycosis, if present in any form, or in any stage, usually takes the precedence of three miasms.

Sycosis. While there is much amelioration by eliminative processes, natural eliminations such as diarrhoea, free urination or even perspiration does not ameliorate. (R)

Sycotic manifestations are characterised by slowness of recovery.

Psora develops the itch or itching papule. Syphilis the virulent open ulcer, Sycosis the catarrhal discharge. The genus epidemicus.


Syphilis files to the meanings of the brain and to the brain itself to the larynx, throat in general, eyes bones and periosteum.

Psora spends it force when suppressed upon the nervous system largely, or upon nerve centres, often producing nervous and mental phenomena of a serious character, all ameliorated when an eruption is thrown up on the skin.

Sycosis attacks the internal organs, especially the pelvic and sexual organs in the worst specific form of inflammation producing hypertrophic, abscesses, cystic degeneration, mucous cysts, etc., and when thrown upon the brain its produces headaches, severe acute mania, central insanity, moral degeneracy, dishonesty, etc.
