Abstract:
Homoeopathy is a wholistic science and based on the law i.e., Similia Similibus Curentur. The totality of symptoms forms the sole guide for the selection of a remedy. But Dr. C.F.S Hahnemann (1755- 1843) was dissatisfied with the temporary relief in long lasting progressing diseases based on totality of symptoms only. Then he studied these cases retrospectively and found a certain pattern of disease in patient’s family history and past history which he felt explained the true basis of chronic diseases. He called these patterns as Miasm. He described three types of fundamental miasms – Psora is one of it. Psora is the mother of all true chronic diseases except the syphilitic and sycotic. It is carried from generation to generation increasing the susceptibility to disease. Thus, to bring cure to any chronic disease, there is a need to consider fundamental miasm along with the accessory circumstances.
