A Study of Nosodes & Sarcodes in Homoeopathy

disease1 (2)Dr Mansoor Ali

“Whether derived from purest gold or purest filth,our gratitude for their excellent service ,forbid us to inquire or care”

The term is by Hering  

Derived from the Greek word NOSO – which signifies the prefix added to the word to form an idea of disease or indicating a relation to the disease
Compared to Latin word NOXA _ means damage

Alledy defines as “ the nosode is characterized by a pathological substance used as medicines prepared in advance and according to Homoeopathic methods of dilution”.
Fortier Bernoville : Specificity & immunity”

Definition “ The nosodes are some Homoeopathic preparations obtained from microbe cultures, from viruses, fungi, pathological secretions and excretions.
Sarcodes are medicines prepared from healthy animal tissues and secretions.

The nosodes are prepared in two ways, according to as they come from culture of microbes – simple nosode & complex nosodes.
The nosodes should satisfy some trials strictly, the first centesimal dilution and a fortiori, the following dilution cultured on different bacteriological grounds should not give birth to any culture.


1.Chronicity form
Resistance – to improvement by apparently similar remedies
Response – Poor response to a remedy
Rallying – the patient does not rally around
Recuperation – Recuperation powers are week
Repair – repairing process stalls

2.Sequela of infection
When there is progressive debility or vague, symptoms and uneasiness with no apparent cause, continues after a past illness – patient says never well since…

3. When best selected remedy fails to act

4. When there is paucity of symptoms

According to Dr. Fellger
“ It was absurd to claim that every disease could be cleared by its nosode,for after potentising the nosode ,we cannot be satisfied that it is in the same condition as when first taken from the diseased individual. Thus the syphilitic poison is composed of molecules, the molecules of atom. When the poison is potentised ,the essential character of molecule is undoubtedly lost, hence it is not the same substance any more.”
