Nosodes are homeopathic remedies of inactivated micro-organisms such as bacteria and viruses, or products of disease – fluids, discharge, or tissue.
The homeopathic manufacturing process inactivates and removes dangerous source material but retains its energetic effects so that the remedy is safe for use. (Vaccines which also use similar source material retain some of it in inactivated or attenuated form.)
Nosodes have a number of uses in human, animal, and increasingly, plant diseases and symptoms.
Therapeutically, they are used for specific symptom profiles, the immediate or latent symptoms of an infection, or for disorders and tendencies inherited through previous infections of that disease in the family lineage.
Nosodes are also used prophylactically for the prevention of infectious disease as long as the symptoms of that disease resemble the symptoms produced by the source material from which the nosode was prepared.
Nosodes have the same physical qualities as other homeopathic remedies: they are dispensed as sugar-pills, powders, or liquids, and can be used with other medicines and by any age group.
