Bacillinum vs Tuberculinum

How to decide between bacillinum and tuberculinum in a case?

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Are you a homoeopath or wanting to self-prescribe?

There can arise confusion when one wants to use these remedies for breaking the miasmatic blocks. As far as using these remedies on standalone basis is concerned, there should not be any confusion. The materia medica gives distinct characteristic symptoms of both these remedies.

Ah then I can give you the explanation that suits someone who understands homoeopathy.

Firstly, all nosodes revolve around the following basic concepts.

'I am diseased, abnormal'
'I am wrong from within'
'I am weak, something is incorrect. Something is diseased within me which needs to be mended, repaired, corrected. I am at fault. I have made a mistake somewhere.'

The polarity of nosodes is DISEASE and HEALTH.

On one side is an abnormal feeling within, and so the person is striving to go to the other side, the healthy normal side.

The conflict of the Nosode is 'I am weak and abnormal so you overpower me. I have something wrong within me and I need to be normal like you.'

'What is it in me that makes me different, weaker and abnormal as compared to others who are not suffering and are normal?'

Both Tuberculinum and Baccillinum are nosodes that belong to the Tubercular miasm. However they are made from different substances and so there is a qualitative difference in how they express their symptoms.

The Tubercular miasm is a very desperate one, close to Syphilis. There is little hope in the patient. The feeling is as if time is running out, death is close and there is panic. Everything must be done at once, everything must be experienced now, there is no time to waste. Frenzy, choking, hectic efforts.

In Tuberculinum itself, you will see Multitasking, Hurry, Restlessness and Suffocation. There is a feeling of being in a tunnel and it is narrowing. Tuberculinum is the more 'successful' version of the miasm, where many hurried efforts are made to do what must be done.

In Baccillinum, the picture is similar but there are differences. There is less effort here than in Tuberculinum. There is more sinking and collapse. He is exhausted, breathless, collapsed. Panting, tired, gasping as if he has been running fruitlessly. Baccillinum can be seen as the more 'failed' version of the miasm.

The other two nosodes of the Tubercular miasm are Pertussin and Diptherinum. Again each one has some subtle differences in how they express the general tubercular feeling.

Pertussin displays a feeling of being blocked or obstructed from within, which prevents the change that the Tubercular person feels is necessary to achieve health. This blocked feeling can cause aggression, desperation, violence. There is a feeling of having to exert great force to break and destroy the block so you can reach health. It is as if they are pushing against a great wall, and there is the typical Tubercular feeling of running out of time to break this obstacle down.

Diptherium is a much more collapsed and weak Tubercular state. They are extremenly prostrated, often too weak to even complain. In some ways it resembles Baccillinum. However Diptherium talks about a barrier or membrane that is blocking him or choking him (like Pertussin) but unlike that remedy he has no strength to fight, he is too exhausted. This film, layer or membrane will finally suffocate him to death. Pertussin will aggressively attack the wall, Diptherium is more passive due the extreme weakness. Pertussin's description of the blockage is hard, resistant, requiring great force. Diptherium's description is of a soft barrier more like a curtain, but their lack of strength makes it impossible to penetrate.

This information comes from Drs. Bhawisha and Shachindra Joshi, in their book 'Nosodes and the Imponderables Come Alive'.

Louis Klein describes in his book "Miasms and Nosodes" that Bacillinum is more the "bold type" and Tubercullinum the phosphoric "tall one". Naturally there are a lot more differences, but you should consider to read this book, it has in depth descriptions of nosodes.
