Book Description

This is a modern review of the homeopathic theory of miasms, taking Hahnemann's groundbreaking hypothesis as the starting point, and extending it to include positive as well as negative traits, exploring how miasms can and do contribute to a growth in human consciousness. Considering the miasms as challenges to humanity, the author describes each major miasm in terms of its life issues and affinities, with the disease aspects being incorporated into a much larger picture. It includes the five chronic miasms of psora, sycosis, syphilis, tuberculosis and cancer, plus the more recent miasms of radiation and AIDS. It also includes the organ and tissue affinities, associated homeopathic remedies and flower essences.

Editorial Reviews


Even seasoned homeopaths will be interested in this new take on miasms. Ian Watson builds on Hahnemann's theory of chronic disease by explaining how perceiving the miasms as transformative influences rather than just underlying predispositions to disease can help us integrate the positive traits rather than simply eradicating the negative ones. He also relates the miasms to stages of individual and collective evolution. A unique aspect of this book (as far as I am aware) is the suggestions for the use of specific flower essences to address the issues raised by each miasm. This has certainly influenced my own thinking as to how flower essences can be used in chronic cases. The authors own interest and study of psychotherapy is also clearly evident in the book. Psychotherapy, particularly Jungian philosophy has informed homeopathic literature for many years but I found the direct correlation of it to the miasms in this book fascinating. Ian has a skillful way of explaining complex issues in a clear and concise way making this a much easier read than many others on these topics but no less informative. The depth of the information in this relatively slim volume is deceptive. When I was at college, Ian's book "A Guide to Homoeopathic Methodologies" was essential reading and the one we all quoted from in our graduation cases and assignments. I have a feeling this book will follow suit. I certainly wish it had been in print when I was studying. I therefore recommend this book to practitioners and students alike. by Carol Boroughs, Homeopath (reviewed on Amazon UK)

More About the Author

Ian Watson was born in Yorkshire, England, in 1962, has traveled widely and now lives mostly in Devon. Having no known connection to the well-known science fiction writer of the same name, Ian has worked in the alternative health field since becoming interested in herbal medicine and flower essences as a teenager. He qualified as a homeopath in 1988 and was the co-founder of The Lakeland College, a homeopathic training school in the U.K. His first book 'A Guide to the Methodologies of Homeopathy' is a firm favorite amongst students and practitioners, and is required reading at many homeopathic schools. He then produced an edited seminar transcript called 'Aspects of Homeopathy-Musculo-Skeletal Problems', containing many clinical hints and observations on this subject. A collaboration with Rana Chalabi, an artist friend based in Cairo, led to the publication of 'The Tao of Homeopathy', a beautifully-illustrated exploration of the homeopathic and taoist philosophies. His most recent work is titled 'The Homeopathic Miasms-A Modern View', providing a much-needed modern perspective on this controversial aspect of homeopathic philosophy. Information on Ian's upcoming workshops and publications can be found at, with many of Ian's published articles also available for download.
