Did you know…
that there are several sub-divisions of the primary, tonic diseases?
Last week we examined one of these: the homogenic jurisdiction. Here we find the various physical and mental-emotional shocks and traumas of life.
Another important jurisdiction of the primary, tonic diseases is the pathogenic jurisdiction. This one is familiar to most as it corresponds to the conventional infectious diseases, such as the childhood diseases – measles, chickenpox, mumps, whooping cough, etc. – as well as the various tropical diseases, such as cholera, malaria, yellow fever, typhoid, etc.
The governing principle of this jurisdiction is the link between a given disease agent, or microbe, called a pathogen, and a given disease state, such as the parasite, Plasmodium delivered by certain mosquitos and the disease termed malaria.
Again, it is important to remember here that while the pathogen is the carrier for the disease, the disease itself is a dynamic or energetic entity that is able to get into and destabilize a person’s life force, and in particular the generative side of that life force. Once there, it acts to weaken our system.
These primary pathogenic diseases we also term miasms, from an old medical term for disease ‘influence’. There are certain self-limiting miasms, such as the childhood diseases that stay for a certain period and then are seemingly gone. However, they can remain to a certain degree in the system in the form of an impairment to our energy system, which can then leave undesired consequences to our health, or what are termed ‘sequelae’. For example, a person who had chickenpox as a child can later suffer from it in the form of the condition termed ‘shingles’. In Heilkunst, we would mainly treat shingles as the lingering or sub-chronic disease of chickenpox. I once had a case of a middle-aged woman who had one side of her throat paralyzed as a result of polio as a child. When she was treated for the polio virus, the paralysis went away and she was able to swallow normally again.
Some miasma are of long duration, and if not removed when they occur, will become chronic in nature, and significantly undermine one’s health. These are the diseases often referred to as degenerative, such as the sexually transmitted diseases (STD) – syphilis, gonorrhoea, as well as others such as tuberculosis, lyme and malaria. These are disease states that can be passed on from one generation to another. To a greater or less degree each of us has some of these inherited disease patterns within us, which undermines our quality of life either acutely, as they often can be brought out into manifestation upon a sort of upset, or sub-clinically as lack of energy or motivation for life. Most complex disease conditions, such as mental illness, diabetes, cancer, and autism-spectrum disorders, involve one or more of these chronic miasms. The good news is that they can be treated through the Heilkunst approach even if passed down from a previous generation.
In the pathogenic jurisdiction of disease we can treat for the infectious primary diseases as they occur. These include the well-known childhood diseases (measles, chickenpox, mumps, whooping cough, etc), various tropical diseases (cholera, malaria, yellow fever, typhoid, etc), STD (syphilis, gonorrhoea), tuberculosis, lyme, malaria, influenza and strep throat. Anything that has a viral and infectious origin can be treated in this jurisdiction by using the dynamic, energetic form of the virus, applying the law of similars. The treatment is safe and effective, without the side-effects and toxic effects of drugs.
We can also treat for the lingering impairment of the acute infectious diseases of the past, such as removing the chickenpox virus for shingles treatment and the polio virus for the longstanding defect/paralysis in the adult. The treatment on past infectious diseases in the adult can have deep health boosting effects.
Finally, we can treat for the inherited disease patterns, which we call chronic miasms, the result of the infectious disease states passing on from one generation to another. Treating the chronic miasms can bring forth immense health improvement for people suffering from chronic conditions and serious illness (mental illness, diabetes, cancer, and autism-spectrum disorders).
Next week we will look at another tonic disease jurisdiction, one that is becoming more and more of a problem for our health – diseases caused by prescribed drugs and synthetic chemicals in foods. So stay tuned, and in the meantime, may you have a joyous and heart-felt Christmas celebration.
