Bowel Nosodes in Homeopathic Practice by JOHN SAXTON, MRCVS
“Bowel nosodes” are homeopathic doses of different bacteria taken from the large intestines of a human. With increased modern interest in the biome and with the emergence of conventional medicine provide “fecal implants” to people in order to re-establish most complex (good) bacterial growth for digestion, it is intriguing to learn that homeopaths have had their own form of fecal implants using bowel nosodes!
The group of 11 remedies known as the Bowel Nosodes are unique in both their derivation and the opportunities that they offer. They have some indications in acute homeopathic prescribing because of the connection and resonance that they have with the miasmatic forces that are active in the body, but they are particularly useful in the treatment of chronic disease. The origin of these remedies lies in human medicine, and there are still major indications in that field.
In this book the development of these important remedies is traced and the concept behind them is explained and discussed within the context of modern homeopathic thought. The general uses of the group in the clinical situation are outlined and the materia medica of the individual bowel nosodes is discussed. The methodology is illustrated with case histories from both the human and animal worlds, demonstrating the common guidelines for the bowel nosodes’ use that are applicable to all species.
