Psora Miasm – The most common form of Miasm
As per Hahnemann, it is the most common form of the miasms and it affects every living thing on the earth. It is spreading from one person to be other through skin contact. Some common diseases attributed to the psoric miasm include constipation (or alternating with diarrhea), psoriasis, itching, burning, leprosy and other unhealthy skin related symptoms. It is characterizing by under functioning diseases (hypo).
Psora miasm is a disease or the susceptibility to a disease that has been carrying over from generation to generation for years. It provides favorable ground for several sickly conditions. Psoric is the most contagious and infectious disease of all.
The most common characteristic symptoms of psora are hypersensitivity (more sensitive) and lack (deficiency or absence).
Hypersensitive: Psoric individuals react more strongly than normal; more sensitive (to light, sound & smell), very observant, gets angry easily, cries easily, etc. That is a genuine expression of the feeling. Psoric can be a scientist or an artist.
Lack: Psoric individual has a deficiency than normal individuals; inadequacy, inferiority, relies on others, needs support, seeks protection, seeks care, seek sympathy, anxious, and scared easily.
The sense of inadequacy forces him to be fantasy; their rich inner world has to show as fantasy. During meeting instead of paying attention then spend time in daydreaming. Because of inferiority, they become stagnant and reserved. If there were no inferiority, they would be happier and contribute more to the society. Psoric’s sees the personality and never sees their partner as a sex object. The lack characteristics in the body are indicating as inadequate nourishment. They eat adequately still their body cannot be able to absorb the food. For example, lack of vitamin A cause’s dryness, which is a basic symptom of psoric miasm.
