Of all the miasms, we were most surprised when we discovered this one. We have found it to be responsible for Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Cerebral Palsy, Lyme Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Autism, and Attention Deficit Disorder. The overlapping symptoms of these diseases, that is, the stiffness, contraction of muscles, paralysis, trembling, restlessness, and forgetfulness, are also the chief symptoms of the polio miasm.
This miasm produces low back pain, hip pain, upper back and shoulder pain with stiffness in the neck, legs, and hands. This is sometimes accompanied with headache. Like the cancer miasm, polio has an affinity for the digestive tract so there may be some stomach aches. The upsets may include constipation with bouts of diarrhea. It also has an affinity for the sinuses so you may notice some sneezing with a runny nose.
Emotionally, the polio miasm can produce cycles of manic-depression. On some days you may feel absolutely fantastic and then very suddenly you may feel deeply depressed and hopeless about your recovery. The cycle of manic-depression may last for a few hours or a few days. During the manic phase one may get very animated and excited about future projects while talking incessantly.
Because of its impact on memory, we have found that some learning disabilities are associated with the polio miasm. For example, one may spend hours studying for an exam, however, when the time for the test is at hand, everything is forgotten. Sometimes it is difficult to remember where you put the car keys, your wallet or purse, or even remember the telephone number of your closest friend! Other symptoms of the polio miasm include:
ear infection in children • flu • fatigue
spacy & daydreaming
difficult to engage in activity • intolerant with people
sad • irritable • anxiety • hemorrhoids
aloof & detached feeling
shortness of breath
clumsiness • accident prone
