Dear Dr.M.Mittu ,I agree that physician should be well versed with all investigations , knowledge of disease , prognosis and his limitations . It is up to him how much he acquire from this world , Learning is a never ending process .
As far as maisamtic diagnosis is concerned i would suggest J.H.Allen Chronic Miasm for reading . Still My opinion regarding this subject is as under
Psora, syphilis and sycosis are the principal constituents of Miasm. . Conceptually, miasm is not disease-producing bacteria, microbes or virus, though it contains syphilis and gonorrhoea as parts of its manifold manifestations. . It is a dynamis, a disease-helping and cure-obstructing quality and Psora, its most important constituent is coexistent with the human race. Syphilis and Sycosis are its later gains brought in by psora. Whenever these miasms try to bring about any pathological changes, the vital force always attempts to throw them out.
They are harmless so long as their external manifestations such as itchings of psora, discharges of sycosis and ulcerations of syphilis are not suppressed by modern suppressive drugs and ointments. When interfered this way, they go deep into the system only to come out in virulent and more dangerous forms at an opportune moment. Degeneration of brain and nervous system, gangrene, cancer, wasting and incurable ulcers in vital parts are some of their awful results.
They deform body, dull intellect and destroy reason. They work behind all cachexias, dyscrasias, idiocyncracies and predispositions. Once they enter the body, they remain there unless similimum conies to the rescue of the vital force and helps it to throw them out. Syphilis and Sycosis can be cured but not Psora, which goes back to its latent stage. Psora is the seed of destruction, shown side by side with life. Though alone it cannot affect tissues or organs of the body, it fully co-operates with the destructive organisms whenever the exciting causes and the environmental factors are favourable to it. In the miasmatic state, syphilis and sycosis are hereditary and, in the protency of infected parents, they tend to exhibit symptoms, when activated, of diseases for which they are individually responsible. In the primary stage, however, the diseases are transmitted exactly at the same stage by the person so infected to another who is not.
Psora, Syphilis and Sycosis are the miasmatic states of psoric, syphilitic and sycotic miasms. They have acute, latent and chronic stages.
In the acute stage, their primary action is functional. It is only after this that structural and organic changes occur with destruction of tissues. It is, therefore, important that the treatment is taken up at the functional stage. It becomes difficult to cure the miasmatic effect after the structural/organic changes have taken place. In the latent stage, there are no acute expressions of miasmatic symptoms, but it is possible to recognise the miasms by carefully observing the symptoms of the patient, his past and family historic. The secondary or tartiary stage of syphilitic and sycotic miasms represents the chronic stage. At this stage, the miasms get mixed up but give the results of the miasms that predominates, necessitating the use of anti-miasmatic drug of that miasm in the course of treatment. In all cases of mixed miasm, psoric drugs have to be used in alterations or as intercurrent because Psora provides the ground and helps expression of the other miasms in the diseased state unless it is already covered by the drug selected on totality basis for treating the chronic case.
Psora
Susceptibility is Psora and sensitivity is its basic property. It is because of this property that human beings from birth to death remain susceptible to the influences of environment and disease. Psora is not scabies nor itches, though they are among its many manifestations. When active, its first attack is directed against mind and the nervous system to force the brain to defy the healthy dictates of vital force and make it inactive against its activities. Then it helps to attack the functions of various organs and gland and make the body sick. The psoric miasm is responsible for all acute and chronic diseases. Its main drug is Sulphur. Some of the symptoms of latent psora are :
1. Mental and/or physical lethargy. Likes to lie down. Restless, apprehensive, anxious and easily irritable. 2. Chilly and susceptible to cold. 3. Epistaxis. 4. Redness of external orifices such as lips, nostrils, anus. 5. Burning and sweating of palms and soles. 6. Sleeplessness, sleepiness and bad dreams. 7. Ravenous hunger, all-gone feeling in stomach or complete lack of appetite. 8. Constipation or morning rush for loose stools. 9. Unclean and dirty. Does not like bath. 10. Early or delyed menses 11. Feeling of heat or hot flushes in any part of the body and rush of blood with a little sweating of forehead and face. 12. Worms, itching of anus and grinding of teeth during sleep. 13. Supressed discharges either menstural or any other 14.Feeling of relief by natural discharges and secretions such as urine, stool, perspiration, menstrual flow. 15. Craving for spicy, fried, sour, sweet and fat food. 16. Twitching of muscles during sleep. 17. Obesity.18. Acne


Syphilis -
The basic character of syphilitic miasm is destruction. Everywhere it produces destructive disorders. It cannot act in the absence of Psora. In its acute or primary stage, it is a venereal disease, being the result of cohabitation with sex contaminated by Spirochaeta Palliada, the syphilitic bacillus, and has to be treated as such, main remedy being Merc-s. Presently, we are more interested in the syphilitic miasm, the suppressed or the hereditary trait which in its latent form distinguishes a patient from the other miasm, viz., sycotic and enables the physician to correctly assess the case. The patient is basically secretive and the mental picture of such a patient is dull, stubborn, suspicious. melancholic, self-condemning and depressed. He has fixed ideas, difficult comprehension and is unsocial. Some of the other symptoms in its latent stage are:
1. Tendency of conceal/suppress everything. 2. Loathing of life with strong suicidal urge. 3. Memory and thinking power greatly diminished. 4. Destruction of tissues and organs of the body, unhealing wound. 5. Amelioration by abnormal discharges such as leucorrhoea, fetid pus and aggravation by natural discharges like urine, perspiration. 6. Excessive or copious menstural bleeding blackish and offensive in character 7.Crowns of incisor teeth becoming crescentic. 8. Ear and head comparatively larger than the body with flat or depressed nose. 9. Hard acne on face. 10. Night aggravation of all symptoms.

Sycosis -
Sycosis like syphilis also originates from contaminated sex-contacts and here the bacillus is Gonococcus. It cannot also act in the absence of Psora. The disease brought in by the bacillus is called Gonorrhoea and, in its acute stage, it has to be treated just like any other disease. As sycotic miasm, its basic quality is incoordination. Any development abnormality and unnatural growth anywhere in the body are its chief characteristics. Its main remedy is Thuja. A sycotic patient is generally deceitful, irritable, suspicious and quarrelsome; suffers from colic, gripe, tenesmus, warts, moles, papillomas. Some of the other symptoms in its latent stage are:
1. Rheumatism, arthritis, neuralgias. 2. Slow recovery from acute diseases. 3. Prolonged period of convalescence. 4. Forgetful of recent events though well-remembers events long past. 5. Amelioration by unnatural discharges of green or greenish-yellow colour. 6. Anaemia. 7.Abnormal hair growth 8. Intolerance of spices, wines and meat which aggravate symptoms. 9. Thick, ridgy and corrugated nails. 10. Aggravation in humid weather.
I hope this might help you , and probably you may get the answer .
Thanks

Sycotic medicines are considered for the treatment of hirsutism . I have found thuja and oleum-jec useful for treatment of hirsutism.

Comment by Dr Dushyant Kamal Dhari on March 4, 2010 at 10:14pm
The hirsutism and the masculinising changes in females belong to syco-syphilitic miasm. As the cause of PCOD is stress related, the disease progresses from Psora to Sycosis to Syphilis where the endometrial cancer / ovarian cancer come in.
Comment by Dr. Meakin Mittu M.D.(Hom.) on March 4, 2010 at 11:58pm
Dear Dr. V. Verma, we all are well versed with J H allen and his teachings, Dr Ortega and his teachings, dr vijaykar and his teachings . we are not here to print the book materials and simple miasmatic explanation or not here to tell the remedies for the given case wheather merc-s is gud or thuja is good or whatever else the remedy is all about. we all know how the miasms invade the dynamis of human vital force and what suppression can lead to. Point is when a particular disorder go out of control or in a self regulatory mode to the extent of destroying and defiguring the human economy that is the point when syphilitic miasm leadss the way of degeneration. same is the case of PCOs when psoric stresses lead the body into constructive pathologies in the form o f cystic ovaries, adiposity, hypertensions , acne and amenorrhoea with hypothyroidism till that end the pathological manifestations are sycotic in form and structure as the pathology starts deteriorating in the form o funcontrolled obesuty, hirsutism where a feamle starts showing character of male with malignant hypertension then syphilitic miasm starts leashing the road of degeneracy and is syphilitic so the PCOS as a whole is sycosyphilitic.
Hope it will help you and probably you may get the answer.
thanks

for diagnosing cysts we have to get the sonography done . how will you diagnose the cysts without the ultrasound done dr mittu -AGREED HOMEOPATHY IS A COMPLETE SCIENCE but where it comes to diagnosis of diseases u have to use these aids or u keep on treating the totality of symptoms which comes into picture of a particular individual.
Comment by Dr. Meakin Mittu M.D.(Hom.) on March 6, 2010 at 12:47am
where i am saying one should not sent patients to the radiologists rather i am saying we need to undertake complete investigations by referring to the concerned authorities like radiologists and pathologists with the complete knowledge of which investigations we need to perform for the patients. What my understanding from your word "REFERRING TO COUNTERPART" was that you are saying referring to alopathic physicians , that is why i was saying homoeopathic physicians are referring patients starightway to the radiologists and pathologists why they will send them to alopaths simply for the sake of unknowing investigations to be done. Hope i am clear with my point of view.I am strongly in favour of investigations at the starting and at the conclusion of the case.
Comment by Dr. Meakin Mittu M.D.(Hom.) on March 6, 2010 at 1:14am
i am putting here the quote of dr. shreya....
"One more thing is that while treating PCOD, homeopathic doctor must be aware of the investigations needed too. Rather, when PCOD is the prime reason for delayed and repeatedly failed conception, one must do ovulation study while treating the patient. I have seen that many homeopaths when it comes to clinical investigations, refer their patients to their other counter parts and that is not good.We must be well-equipped to deal with necessary investigations those may put us in the frame of good doctor by conventional mind set too. Also we get to know the great depth of action of our remedies for induction of ovulation in such patients where even modern medicines like Clomiphene citrate fails!"
.
.
i have never seen any homeopathic doctor doing so...every homeopathic physician is doing very well with his well versed knowledge.
Comment by Dr. Meakin Mittu M.D.(Hom.) on March 6, 2010 at 1:19am
Now can you explain this version where she is saying that homeopathic doctors are not well equipped and due to lack of knowledge they are referring their patients to counter parts.
Do you agree with it ?
are you referring your patients because you do not what investigation to be undertaken for a given case and let the alopathic doctor do the needful after that i wil take the case on that investigatory report. I know you are not doing so as you know what to go for investigation wise in each of your patients.
Comment by Dr. MAS on March 6, 2010 at 3:04am


One of my patient had PCO. I tried few medicines according to the symptom and tried the most frequent medicines which are used in PCO but that patient did not respond well. Three months gone but no change. I again took the symptoms. She had Calc and Iodum mixed symptoms.

If you ever experience to see a patient that has arsenic and iodium sign and symptoms but you are unable to distinguish what's in the last to suggest ars or iod? Then you can suggest Ars iod….

Do you agree to suggest Arsenic iodide instead based on the type of chemical nature of ars and iod?

In that case, I used Calc Iod 30 for one month and all multiple cysts are markedly reduced now.

What do you think? It is my mistake? Or it is result of calc iod or previous medicines started working? (I have no idea)

tests required to be performed before diagnosis of PCOS:-
¨Levels of different hormones that may be tested include:
¨Estrogen levels
¨FSH levels
¨LH levels ratio between LH: FSH is > 3:1
¨testosterone & DHEA-S levels
¨17-ketosteroids
¨Pregnancy test (serum HCG)
¨Reversible oestradiol: Oestrone ratio. The Oestrone level is markedly low
¨Prolactin levels
¨sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG)
¨Thyroid function test
¨Fasting glucose and other tests for glucose intolerance and insulin resistance
¨Lipid levels
¨Vaginal ultrasound & Pelvic laparoscopy to look more closely at, and possibly biopsy the ovaries
REMEMBER PRESENCE OF CYSTS IN THE OVARIES IS NOT CONFIRMATORY OF PCOS,
only if hormonal imbalance is present we can diagnose it as pcos.
