Bowel nosodes are the medicines prepared from the non-lactose fermenting, pathogenic intestinal flora. Bach and Paterson carried out extensive research. These remedies are very useful in confusing cases where the symptomatology reflects multiple medicines and also chronic cases where the cases are not responding satisfactorily to the appropriately selected remedies. They can remove the miasmatic blockage, reflect the symptoms clearly and thus hasten cure.
