Homeopathic Miasms

Tuesday, 28 March 2017

Homeopathic Miasms come up a lot in our healing plans.  Clients are always sending me the 'please explain' email over miasms as they can be quite confronting.  I hope this post helps to explain what they are and how they are used in the healing process.

Miasm means a cloud or fog in the being.  We can see this as a defect, a root cause, shadow over the constitution of a person/animal, a fragment of a disease passed down the genetic line.

Homeopathically a miasm is a supposed predisposition to a particular disease, either inherited or acquired. 

Our healing plans identify the load a person or animal is carrying whether it be inherited, accumulated or current.  It appears that the immune system is diverted in attending to the issue whether it's current or not.  As you can imagine over the years you lose a lot of your immune system function as it goes off to deal with issues it perceives are going to damage your body.  Clearing the issues at the cellular level releases the immune system, so it can go back to dealing with current issues.  In our world, this is how we improve/stimulate the immune system to better function.

We all know that cancer seems to run in families.  That has been discussed for decades.  "Be careful, have the tests done because someone in the family line has had this cancer or that cancer."  We have all heard this from someone in our lives.  In my family heart issues are very common.  My grandfather had heart disease, my grandmother cardiomyopathy, my dad has had open heart surgery and most of his family struggle with some sort of heart issue.

Back in the early 1800's the developer of Homeopathy, Samuel Hahnemann considered the underlying issues of his clients to be these inherited miasms.  Although it rocked the medical world and even his fellow Homeopaths, Hahnemann never waivered in his thoughts and now it is common knowledge that many underlying issues are inherited.

In his time he consider three main miasms - sycosis, syphilis and psora.


This miasm is held to be responsible for many sexual and urinary disorders and affects of the joints and the mucous membranes.  Also those conditions worsened by damp weather and by contact with the sea - arthritis, rheumatism, asthma, catarrhs, bronchitis, cystitis, warts.


This miasm is held to be responsible for many diseases of the nervous system, the blood and skeleton as well as psychological disorders, including alcoholism, depression, suicidal impulses, insanity, loss of smell and taste, blindness, deafness and ulcers.  Heart conditions, some skin eruptions.


Hahnemann believed that all non veneral chronic diseases are Psoric.  That includes chronic diseases like skin disturbances, mental illness other than syphilitic ones, allergies, varicose veins, haemorrhoids, dysfunction of organs and systems.

Just three miams.  We now live in a different world.  200 years later we have so much more to load on us.  The current list is a little longer.  Heavy Metal Miasm, Petro-chemical Miasm, Radiation Miasm, Cancer Miasm, Tuberculosis Miasm, plus the original three.

Heavy metal miasm

We see this as autoimmune disease, liver and kidney disease, crown’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, leaky gut syndrome, neuromuscular disorders.

Petro-chemical miasm

This presents as low self-esteem, anxiety, low resistance to stress, mood swings or erratic behaviour.  Also can affect adrenals, liver, endocrine system and immune system, heart disease, thymus, obesity, fluid retention, diabetes, hair loss, skin blemishes, impotence, muscular degeneration, viral inflammations, arthritis, autism, skin and lymph blockages.

Radiation miasm

Symptoms are nausea and vomiting, diarrhoea, headaches, fever, dizziness and disorientation, weakness, fatigue, hair loss, bloody vomit and stools, infections, poor wound healing, low blood pressure.

Cancer Miasm

Releases inherited tendency to cancer.

Tuberculosis Miasm

Symptoms are tiredness, motion causes intense fatigue, aversion to work, wants constant changes.  Rapid emaciation - extreme weight loss, unnatural thinness, epilepsy, neurasthenia, nervousness.  Sensitivity mentally and physically.  Trembling.  Arthritis.  Enlarged tonsils.  Hard, dry cough during sleep.  Expectoration thick, easy.  Profuse bronchorrhoea.  Shortness of breath.  Sensation of suffocation.  Broncho-pneumonia.

Other Miasms

At Heal with Ease we don't believe the above are the only inherited issues you can have and we are constantly on the look out for more general and specific things to our to our testing.  For example emotional traumas and medication load.

Thank you Jolene for taking the time to write the following two testimonials for us.

"I'd like to thank Heal with Ease for their amazing work and help they've provided me over the past few months.

I had always been a positive and happy person however a combination of events after uni, with family, friends and HBC (Hormonal Birth Control), had made me no longer feel like myself.

I was getting annoyed at little things out of my control and would often stay angry for the whole day. Despite knowing it wasn't a big deal I couldn’t seem to let go. I was also becoming anxious and would often get upset very easily. It was these changes that encouraged me to reach out to Heal with Ease.

I really wanted to be ME again and I could tell my moods were having an impact on my relationships. I came off HBC and started my healing plans in December 2016. Within weeks I felt such a weight lift. I was happier and also able to brush off the issues that would have triggered my anger just weeks earlier. I continued with several follow up plans and continued to improve. I have had more energy to get me through the day and am thinking more clearly. I’m also enjoying being back to my level headed and relaxed ways and laugh when things go pear shaped.

My partner has seen a real difference in the way I have changed since my healing plans started with Cathy and the team at Heal with Ease. I highly recommend reaching out to them if you are experiencing some challenging times either mentally or physically.

Heal with Ease have made such a positive impact on my health and wellbeing. Thank you so much!!"

And on her partners healing:

"I asked Cathy and the team at Heal with Ease for help with my partner after he had drastically lost his enthusiasm and energy over the past year. By the time work finished for the day he was exhausted and would struggle getting out of bed every morning. It was common for him to have 2-3 energy drinks a day just to get through.

As he progressed through the healing plans I noticed a positive shift in his mood and his energy increased. He's been able to ditch the energy drinks and also quit smoking prior to starting Heal with Ease and has managed to stay off the cigarettes for the past 4 months!"

Living outside the box

Living outside the box

I can still clearly remember what our lives were like 19 years ago when we took our first tentative step outside the box, and away from “normal”.  We began testing the waters of alternative medicine after some health issues for which we felt Western Medicine was not providing the answer. 

It can be a lonely path to follow at first when all the people you know and love question you for looking for something different.  Why?  Why can’t you just be happy with what we know, what is comfortable.  They don’t understand what’s outside the box that they grew up in, that their families have been involved in for generations, and they just don’t “get” why you are looking for something else.

In our journey, we have known a great deal of joy and personal satisfaction and it is this that keeps us working and learning every single day to find more ways to be of benefit to others. 

We have met lots of people who are seekers like us and everyone has their own story.  Some people look for an alterative because, like us, the system couldn’t help them, some have been or seen the side effects of poisons in their environment, and others have turned away from processed, highly chemical food because they have looked into the side effects of the toxins in their food and they don’t want that for themselves or their family.

For whatever reason you are on this journey ‘outside the box’, please know that you are not alone.  Your family and friends might not support you, might even think you’re a little crazy, but there are many people like you, who have been doing this for a long time.  You don’t need to reinvent the wheel, just find the right information and support group.

Like our family, I’m sure you will find things to challenge you along your journey and issues will come up that you will need to think about and research, that you would never have considered when you started.  The more you start to question, the more you find to question and the further outside the ‘box’ you become.

These are some of the issues we’ve tackled in the last 17 years:

-       What do I use to clean my house, my self, my family?
-       What can I use to kill insects?
-       How can I grow my vegetables without chemicals?
-       How do I get rid of the weeds without chemicals?
-       Are my personal products poisonous – makeup, aluminium based deodorant, skin care products?
-       What’s safe to buy from the supermarket?
-       What do all the food additives mean/do?
-       What am I going to do about health issues for me, my family and my pets?

There are so many things to consider, but please don’t try to do them all in one day.  There will usually be something that stands out as specifically bothering you.  That would be a good place to start.  You might begin by buying organic or biodynamic food or growing your own, so you know what is in the food you are eating.   You can prepare and cook more of your own food rather than purchasing processed or ready-made products.   As much as possible, stop using chemicals and look for alternatives for your cleaning and personal care.  Find a natural health provider and be proactive with your health.

One way to get away from many of the additives in food and the cosmetics is to look at the ingredient lists on what you use now.   A good rule of thumb is that if you don’t know what it is, or you cannot pronounce the word, then it’s probably chemically man made and may not be healthy.  There is a great reference guide called the Chemical Maze which was a real eye opener for us and we use it to check every additive that we are considering using on or putting in our bodies.

We are all so busy.  Make your changes gradually and one issue at a time. 

Recently on the Sunrise breakfast program they said that the average person will be exposed to 200 chemicals before they leave home in the morning.  That’s astounding and very scary.  It’s a very toxic time in the evolution of the human race.

Our Family

For us, our big issue was health.  Seventeen years ago, I was struggling with Post Natal Depression after the birth of our first child and the doctors just wanted to give me anti-depressants.  That was not where I wanted to go and they had nothing else to offer me.  A family member suggested we try Homeopathy.  We’d never heard of it but felt it was worth investigating.  It wasn’t a magic bullet but it did get me space to cope better and put us on a path to make some life changing decisions.

Our Family owned and run business

In our business we help people and animals every day with their health issues and also to be proactive with their health.  When Homeopathy was implemented over 250 years ago, they didn’t have chemical loads like we do today.  People also did not travel and share bacterias to new parts of the world like we do today. Viruses are being supercharged by chemicals such as antibiotics and man-made bacteria and viruses are set loose on us at random.

We now have generations of people so overloaded with inherited and accumulated load – toxins, bacteria, chemicals, viruses, etcetera, that they can barely cope on a daily basis. 

The result is very obvious and everywhere – cancer, depression, suicide, rage, apathy, autism spectrum, ADHD, ADD, behaviour, growth and learning difficulties and it goes on.

Our healing work is about identifying this load and where this load is affecting the internal functions and natural healing processes of the body.  Then using energy remedies we can clear the load/toxins and stimulate the body back into proper function.   Once the body is running properly again it can deal with day to day issues quickly and efficiently.  Stresses can be dealt with rationally without everything becoming a drama.

Whether you come to us, find a Homeopath, Naturopath, Acupuncturist, or other therapist; find someone you trust to help you with you and your family’s health, including your pets.  This step is an important part of beginning your natural lifestyle change, along with cutting out chemical use, and eating “clean” food without toxins.

We wish you all the best on your journey outside the box.  If you feel we may have answers to questions, even if it’s just an ear to listen or guidance to finding more, please feel free to contact us.

Love and blessings

Cattle have feelings too

Do You Believe Cattle Have Feelings?
I do.
My name is Nancy Dent from Wallabadah, NSW.  I have been using HWE products for 5 years.  I first started with plans for my family and animals from Eric and Cathy.  I then purchased a Farm Pack and with using the basics I was amazed how much I could treat.  
I am really passionate about my cattle being as low stressed as possible.  We still have to manage our cattle - dehorning, vaccination, ear marking, castration, weaning, cartage and the stresses of the environment in which they live.  Our handling of the cattle has not changed just the approach in which I deal with the stresses that they are exposed to.  
In the last year I have been looking at our cattle differently.  They have emotional needs and much to my surprise they are quite high.  Remember this is only my opinion.  Nearly every time our cattle come into the yards they are treated.  I look at them with compassion and view the situation from a different perspective - they have feelings.  With this in mind my first choice remedy is an emotional needs one.  
Every time someone moves me and tells me what to do and changes my routine I can’t tell you how much it frustrates me and I have reasoning.  Do you know how long it takes me to adapt to something new?  A long time.  The same applies to my cattle.  I did not realise how much we were the same.
We dehorned some bigger steers last year and instead of treating those for the actual dehorning that went on, I changed my tactics. I treated them with a grief remedy and then for high emotional needs.
I now treat the cattle we dehorn with emotional remedies every time and I find that our cattle are sitting down after they have been dehorned and are not walking, they are very sore but yet they are calm.  
Before I started using HWE remedies these cattle use to walk and walk and bleed everywhere and where very unsettled.  The next time we get these cattle into the yards they are calm and easy to handle. Do not get me wrong there are still some animals that quicker than others but I am talking as whole.
Our cattle went to a local camp draft and the organisers and competitors were happy with the cattle that we donated. The truck drivers said they were easy to handle, they were settled in the yards (I was not there but I was told they laid down a lot of the time), they did not get stirred up when they were getting sorted and they were used for the kids (the kids never got so many scores) and for the Open and when they were getting on the trucks they said they were nearly petting them.
I am reassured that I know our cattle can handle the stress they are put under and it makes it easier to donate because before I used HWE remedies our cattle use to come home very rattled.  Now they are okay and I know that I have the remedies to help them overcome the stresses which are emotional trauma and the shock of trucking and the dehydration.
I treat everything - Bulls, Cows and all the followers. I mostly use the remedies out of the Farm Pack as I find them very versatile. I also treat mobs of cattle on our farm.  If we have certain paddocks that have heifers we are going to fatten or steers that are going to a feedlot or to Woolworths, I usually make a small plan for them.  When they come back into the yards for weighing or general handling (sorting or shifting or if they look unwell - sometimes the change of feed can upset them) I treat them out of the farm Pack. It really is no hassle; it is just when they are in the yards. The same goes for all the other cattle. The bulls are usually treated with fertility remedies and treated as soon as they come back from joining.
With just using the basics remedies in the beginning I saw our cattle become more settled.  Now after years of treating them I see cattle that are easy handled, friendly, love to play and are curious and cope with a few stresses (like camp drafting and cartage).  That may sound funny that I say cattle like to play and are curious but when they are content you would be surprised on how cheeky they can become.  We have a video of me and my two daughters petting 2 weaners that have never been hand reared but just curious.  The other 144 weaners where not far behind them. It was a great reward for years of treating them.

Add on from Eric Tighe, Heal with Ease

It was not until Nancy had the basic tools/remedies to work with that she could start to see the real benefits and deal with issues early.

Nancy has worked with us for quite some time.  At the start Nancy was cautious with the kits and remedies.  As she has become comfortable with her remedies Nancy has started treating her stock regularly and has seen the incredible changes in her stock – how they perform, produce and reproduce.

Nancy and her husband James run 350 Charolais and Charolais X breeders.  They grow out their calves to feedlot weights and are now starting to feedlot their own cattle.  They are performing extremely well.

I would like to thank Nancy for taking the time to put this together for us.  It is a sensitive point when you start taking about emotions in stock.
