The Cancer Diathesis – Article by Mr. Mueller

Mr. Mueller published this article in The American Homeopath, Vol 16, 2010.

“The pre-cancer stage embraces all the countless manifestations of chronic disease such as diabetes, epilepsy, psoriasis, eczema, arthritis, in its many forms, asthma, hay fever and numerous tubercular affections as well as the venereal diseases together with the numerous abnormal mental and emotional afflictions which harass the (human) race today.”
— Arthur H. Grimmer, Collected Works, p. 769.

A diathesis is constitutional predisposition toward a particular state or condition. It is recognizable by certain psycho-physical characteristics, by a group of diseases encountered in the ancestors and by a number of associated disorders. Historically, “diathesis” was described in homeopathic medicine in conjunction with, and as a sequel of, a natural (contagious) chronic disease or miasmic disease such as tuberculosis, that is, in the ancestors of the afflicted. The term has been used interchangeably with miasm, even though the “cancer miasm” does not necessarily denote a dyscrasia resulting from an infectious disease (although there is evidence that certain forms of cancer are of an infectious nature). Some classical homeopaths correctly spoke of the psoric, sycotic, syphilitic and tubercular diatheses, a term which I prefer; I am reserving the term “miasm” for infection, as it was originally used by Hahnemann.

The transcript was published in The American Homeopath Vol 15, 2009

By Manfred Mueller, MA, DHM, RSHom (NA), CCH


Diane Miller, JD, is a Minnesota attorney and Legal and Public Policy Director of the acclaimed National Health Freedom Coalition (NHFC) and its sister organization, the National Health Freedom Action (NHFA). NHFC is a national information resource for health freedom decision-makers  and leaders, to support them in their work of protecting access to healing options of all kinds.

Miller’s work involves state, national, and international health freedom issues, such as state safe harbor exemption  laws  for  homeopaths,  naturopaths,  and  herbalists,  so  that  traditional  practitioners  will  not  be charged  with  the  practice  of  medicine  without  a  license,  and  expansion  of  state  laws  to  allow  medical professionals to practice holistic care without being disciplined.

How Homeopathic Myths Are Born

by Manfred Mueller, RSHom(NA), CCH

“Once again, history repeats itself. One states it, another quotes it, in the end many state it, and in a matter of years it becomes public opinion – this fearsome power, void of intellect, crushing, inaccessible to all arguments of reason.”

—C. Hering

Myths sometimes develop from inadequate research or from unfounded assumptions. Take, for example, the recent claim that Hahnemann was a “Grand Master of Freemasonry.”

The article Quiet at Köthen by Dr. Jurj (Simillimum, Vol. X) cites Hahnemann’s alleged return to Freemasonry and surmises that Hahnemann had become interested in metaphysics at Köthen. Jurj advances that Hahnemann’s later work represented a change from his earlier “radical empiricism” to more “speculative, theoretical assumptions,” which included a “spiritual conception of disease” and an interest in “metaphysical philosophy.” He concludes with speculations that Hahnemann must have been a “Grand Master Freemason.”

A homeopathic myth is born…

Dana Ullman quotes Jurj’s assumptions as fact in his recent book, The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy. “It is not surprising to know that Hahnemann was a Freemason as early as 1777; he was later granted the title of Obermeister, or Grand Master (Jurj, 2007). In this esoteric fraternal organization and secret society, men shared certain moral and metaphysical ideals.” Read more
