Miasms in labour’ discusses a revision of the homoeopathic theory of the miasms. It starts with researching an analogy between the birth process and the miasms. A deeper analysis of the miasms leads to a new perception of them. By discussing their connection with the individuation process their function in the development of the human psyche is clarified. A book with a refreshing and challenging view on the miasms, written in a clear and comprehensive way. Corrie Hiwat For some two centuries homoeopathy had no connections with the mainlands of science. In this book Harry van der Zee is building a bridge with psychology. He makes a connection between the miasms and the birth process … and succeeds in giving the miasms a much greater depth by connecting them with the individuation process. Apart from this ‘Miasms in labour’ is already a valuable book for all the beautiful cases and remedy pictures. Jan Scholten, MD This book of Harry van der Zee on a new understanding of the miasms and the essences of many remedies through the process of pregnancy and birth is brilliant. This book is an important step towards a deeper understanding of miasms and its application into practice. The connection that Harry made between pregnancy, birth, biblical stories on the creation of the world, mythology and psycholo- gy is wonderful. This book helped me in realizing better the truth and depth of homoeopathy. After reading the book, I felt much more con- fident in the ability of homoeopathy to treat and cure severe pathologies, by using the miasmatic approach. Dr. Chaim Rosenthal
