Aggravation from cold and damp. Overgrowth. Overproduction. Water element disturbance. Hiding inadequacies. Warts and fishy discharges. Patterns of Thuja, Natrum sulph and Medorrhinum. These are some of the readily recognized tracks of the sycotic miasm in the form, psyche and family line of your client.

Hahnemann began the discussion with his initial writings about sycosis, expanded through Von Grauvogl's teaching that broadly defined hydrogenoid constitution. Over the past 150 years, many other homeopaths have continued to reframe the sycotic miasm to get good clinical traction with clients.  Bottom line for sycosis is this:  If it is a bacteria, virus or fungus that thrives in cool and damp conditions, then it is likely to thrive in the microbiome (the total microbial population) of our clients who are in this miasmatic terrain.  Our microbiome strongly influences our physiology and our mental / emotional states. The woman with an anxiety disorder and bacterial vaginosis...  the 4 month old infant with bronchitis or asthma...  the middle aged man with receding gums and recurrent boils...  the teenager with acne and chronic sinusitis...   the fellow with night terrors...  clients coming to you after repeated rounds of antibiotic, antiviral and antifungal medications...  all are likely to need help with the sycotic constraint in their health.  Time to retool so that you are fully prepared to work with them!

Join Karen Allen, CCH to get a new understanding of sycosis through the lens of the microbiome. Get cozy with the Chlamydia nosode, the quiet cousin of Medorrhinum, little known and incredibly useful. While the incidence of gonorrhea has been dropping for decades, incidence of chlamydia has been increasing rapidly, and this savvy organism hides itself so well that it often remains undetected. The nosodes of fellow virus Coxsackie, and the bacterial saprophytes Streptococcinum and Staphylococcinum are neighbors on the same street in the sycotic terrain. Each has its own symptom signature as well as its own territory within the land of sycosis. They are often co-factors in infection.

Karen will present research data, the symptom signatures with mental/emotional and physical indicators from provings and clinical work, along with cases for each nosode, showing relationships between them and the bridges to other miasms. Whether you recognize it or not, you are probably dealing chlamydia, strep, staph, Coxsackie virus or its after effects in your casework frequently. Take this class so that you will see the indicators and learn to use these nosodes to relieve the symptoms and quiet the miasm. The information being presented is practice oriented, with specific strategies for these nosodes that you will be able to use right away with your clients.
