The application of miasmatic theory and the use of nosodes in homeopathy have always been somewhat controversial and reflective of particular interpretations from different homeopaths. However, it is clear that nosodes have a unique and vital role in homeopathic prescribing and open doors in a case where no other remedy will work. Also, miasmatic theory has evolved since Hahnemannʼs time and reveals some of the most fascinating homeopathic interpretations of genetic and epigenetic theories. Therefore, this essay explores the situation when nosodes are needed in practice and miasmatic interpretations that enable the justification for their use.
