Prevention of TB (in humans) with  Tuberculinum – For those who would like to know more about the use of nosodes this is a really good easy to read synopsis.  There is an interesting reference to the prevention of TB (in humans) with the use of Tuberculinum.  When farmers use nosodes it is really advisable to understand a bit about what you are trying to do and why nosodes might help.  It is also importamt to know what nosodes are and the various different types.  ‘Nosode’ has slipped into general parlance which is not at all accurate in homeopathic terms,  and what is seen to be useful in prophylaxis (preventing disease) is not always either appropriate, or a nosode.
