Abstract: 
Brief Background:
The current study sought to ascertain if any disease patterns or miasmatic trends exist
at Ukuba Nesibindi Homeopathic Health Centre (UNHHC) (and the nature thereof).
The results of this investigation will enhance our understanding of the trends related
to disease, prescriptions and miasms at this community clinic. These findings can be
used to inform and improve the current homeopathic management of patients in this
particular location. UNHHC is a thriving clinic and further insight into possible
miasmatic trends is likely to have a large impact.
Aims:
The aim of this study was to evaluate miasmatic nosode prescription trends at a
homeopathic community clinic. Furthermore, the objectives of the study were to
determine the frequency, dosage, and posology trends in prescription of the miasmatic
nosodes and to determine trends in patient diagnosis, as well as miasmatic diagnosis.
Methodology:
The research methodology comprised a quantitative inquiry and analysis, to provide
clinical verification of prescriptions. A retrospective chart review was conducted at the
UNHHC based on the relevant patient charts. A rubric was used to document the
demographics, clinical conditions, homeopathic guiding symptoms, posology and
miasmatic diagnosis of each chart, where a miasmatic nosode was prescribed.
Further, a comparison of the guiding prescribing symptoms was made against existing
materia medica.
Results and Conclusions:
The results of the study show that the most commonly prescribed miasmatic nosode
was Tuberculinum bovinum (Tub bov) followed by, Psorinum, Medorrhinum,
Carcinosin, Bacillinum and finally Syphillinum. The most common miasmatic
classification was the tuberculinic miasm. The study also showed that the most common form of prescribing miasmatic nosodes was in the 200th potency given as one
powder daily. The most common diagnoses for which miasmatic nosodes were
prescribed were skin conditions. The conclusion drawn from this study is that the
miasmatic trend prevalent at UNHHC is the tubercular miasm, with the majority of
manifestations appearing on the skin, requiring the 200th potency given daily.
