Sycosis



If the convalescence from acute disease is delayed we must not invariably regard the cause to be psora, but find out what miasm is present, and give the corresponding antipsoric, anti- syphilitic or anti-sycotic.- (K.)

A marked similarity between the symptoms of sycosis and those produced by vaccination led Boenninghausen and others to regard them as identical, but Kent dose not believe this to be correct. Ordinary gleet lingering for months is not always indicative of sycosis, but often of psora, and analogous to a catarrh from any other mucous membrane.- (K.)

It is worthy of notice that many remedies have a decided curative action upon the gonorrhoeal discharge, but are not known to have cured warty cases or to have developed a suppressed discharge.

It may be they are only gonorrhoea remedies and may cure the discharge and not sycosis. Any condition driven from the urethra may produce inflammation of the testicle, not necessarily sycotic. Remedies for the suppression of the discharge are, therefore, not necessarily, not necessarily anti-sycotic.- (K.).

Robert Gibson-Miller
He was born in 1862, and was educated at Blair Lodge and the University of Glasgow, where he graduated in medicine in 1884. Early in his career he was attracted to the study of Homoeopathy, and with the object of testing the claims made for this system of medicine he undertook a visit to America. As a result of his investigations there Dr. Miller was convinced of the soundness of the homoeopathic theory. Dr. Miller did not write much, but we owe him also his Synopsis of Homoeopathic Philosophy and his small book, always at hand for reference, on Relation ship of Remedies.
