Miasm is staging a comeback. After nearly sinking into oblivion, Hahnemann’s concept is receiving tremendous attention in many locations. Harry van der Zee published his, Miasms during Labor describing the miasms in terms of Grof’s psychological insights. Jeremy Sherr recently published his scholarly book, Dynamic Materia Medica: A Study of the Syphilitic Miasm. Rudolph Ballentine’s new book, Radical Healing deals mainly with miasm. And Rajan Sankaran has been slowly evolving his concept of miasm for the past 10 or more years. Why this sudden rebirth of interest in the concept that Hahnemann proposed 175 years ago?
