Characteristics of Patients Needing Cancer Miasm Medicines
1. Perfectionism. This is probably the one best word to describe those who need this classification of medicines. As children, these are the kids who must color exactly within the lines without deviating a millimeter. Mistakes are not well-tolerated. If the child writes a number or letter that is less than perfect, he or she will erase every mistake to the point of putting a hole in the paper. Picture the adult who writes and rewrites drafts, crumpling up paper after paper. Thank goodness for word-processing programs and spell checker! These are the adults with a reputation for being fastidious, anal retentive, and even obsessive. Everything must be in its place and perfectly clean. These can be the hostesses with the white couches and carpets that by some stretch of the imagination remain immaculate. Imagine the extraordinary efforts expended by this type of housekeeper with children or pets, constantly trying to stay on top of the chaos of clutter. These may also be the fashion-conscious types who dress in perfect color coordination with nary a hair out of place.
2. Over-attention to detail and responsibility. Simply put, these folks can be control freaks. Everything must be handled, micromanaged, and beyond reproach. They won't do anything unless they can complete it 200%, despite the toll that it takes on them and on those around them. You can count on someone like this to do a more meticulous job than you had ever imagined, leaving nothing to the imagination, but she may be completely wiped out when the task is finished. Instead of crashing and taking a break, however, she will proceed to jump into the next project or plan every element of the family vacation or manage her extended family business or affairs in her spare time. This predisposition to take on excessive responsibility can begin during childhood and can look much like Aurum, though in a less structured, mineraloid way.
3. Passion. These individuals are closely related to the tubercular tendency of burning the candle at both ends and fervently chasing after life. They can exhibit a strong fascination for the new and the different--for travel, knowledge, nature, etc. Patients needing Carcinosin, for example, will recite an amazing list of foods that they absolutely love, especially chocolate and spicy food. Their intrigue with cultures and peoples can lead them to the fields of anthropology or sociology. And whatever they do, they pursue their interest intensely, in an effort to master the subject in its breadth and entirety. It is the passion and verve that lead those in the cancer miasm to love to dance. These folks are typically impassioned about animals as well.
4. Intensity of physical complaints. It goes without saying that these people have a predisposition to cancer. Those needing Carcinsosin classically have a personal or family history of malignancies. Also common are moles, which are at risk of developing into melanoma. These individuals may have a personal or family history of diabetes or tuberculosis. Also common is a tendency to intense, acute physical illnesses--typically childhood illnesses--as adults. These are the adults with ear infections, strep throats, measles, or mumps.
5. Emotional traits. These are highly sensitive people. They care deeply about others and can exhibit a very strong anxiety and enmeshment with family members or others very close to them. They strive so sincerely to do everything just right that these patients can be exquisitely sensitive to reprimands. They are the children who will breakdown at the least intimation that they have done something wrong or the slightest glance of reproach. Another feature that they share with the tubercular miasm is a romantic, sentimental nature.
6. Family history of chronic disease. Patients belonging to the cancer miasm typically, but not necessarily, have a family history of some type of cancer on one or both sides of the family as well as, in some cases, a history of some malignant or pre-malignant cases themselves. Diabetes and tuberculosis are also common in the genetic history of the family members.
