The Mueller Method in Practice: Six Cases

This is an edited and augmented excerpt from one of Manfred Mueller’s tutorials. Manfred developed The Mueller Method™ which introduces many features that go above and beyond standard homeopathic practice. The following cases will help the reader to have a better overview of how The Mueller Method™ works in clinical homeopathic practice, with a special focus on identifying causes, so-called “obstacles to cure,” and how to overcome them. For more information on The Mueller Method™ and its features, please read the article “The Mueller Method™ – Digging Deeper Into Your Homeopathic Toolbox”.


Case 1: Perineal Rash in an Infant

Infant girl, two months old. A painful, red, irritating rash appeared on the perineum after three weeks of daily dosing with Q potencies of the remedy Carcinosinum (one drop dose daily, beginning with 1Q and raising the potency to 2Q after 10 days, and so forth), given as a constitutional remedy. Medorrhinum was the only remedy found under the rubric for “eruption; perineum, infant.” Instead of using Medorrhinum, which only covered this one symptom and not an entire “syndrome” or the constitutional characteristics of this child, I looked at the case more thoroughly.

Why would Carcinosinum bring out a rash in the perineum? My guess was, an obstacle to cure existed – either something that was being used topically or there was a contact dermatitis of sorts.Carcinosinum was too dissimilar to this “condition” but similar to the “patient” and brought out a group of newer, latent symptoms. Upon further questioning of the mother, I decided that the “natural” diaper wipes the she’d been using could have been responsible for the eruption. While the ingredients seemed innocuous, I did find one potentially offending substance – potassium sorbate. I looked up the health effects potassium sorbate and found, yes, it can cause skin rashes. So the mother discontinued use of the wipes and we gave Potassium sorbate in a 30C potency in water, 3 doses day, for 3 days. By the next day the rash was gone and there was never any recurrence, even after months of being on her daily dosing of Carcinosinum.

Homeopathic Treatment of Brain Hemorrhage: Several Cases

By Manfred Mueller, RSHom (NA), CCH

first appeared in The American Homeopath, vol 19

Cerebrovascular injuries, whether from trauma, surgery or internal chronic conditions, are all too often the cause of permanent disability, if not fatal outcomes. It is perhaps because of the very severity and hopelessness of these cases that they constitute some of the most frustrating and at the same time most rewarding work a homeopath can engage in. In this article I hope to convey some of the triumphs, as well as difficulties, we homeopaths may encounter while working with the victims of brain injury and their families.

Case # 1: Hemiplegia after Hemorrhagic Stroke with Hematoma

Harriet called from Roanoke, VA, about six hours from Durham, NC, where I then practiced. Her older sister Eleanor, aged 70, had collapsed after she suffered a hemorrhagic stroke and, “was now in a bad way.” She was lying in the hospital bed, nearly unconscious, and tests showed she was completely paralyzed on the left side. Her breathing was noisy, with a snoring sound. Eleanor was currently on a ventilator and taking several medications. Harriet, aged 62, was a retired hospital administrator and did not trust that conventional treatment was going to do her sister much good. She reasoned, “At the very least she can use all the help she can get!”

The first few consultations were conducted with Harriet travelling six hours to Durham to speak with me in person. She would describe her sister’s appearance and observational symptoms, since Eleanor was unable to talk. She would then travel back the same day and take her the remedies, administering them herself.

Victory Over Serious Conditions: Gallstone Colic

Homeopathy is a wonderfully powerful system of medicine. It’s successes never fail to amaze and challenge me. And this case was a bit of challenge. It is one of those cases that shows you just how important those little symptoms and clues are for the observer to be able to report to the homeopath. In fact, it wasn’t until I was presented with just such a symptom that I was able to find the remedy that cured this man’s gallstone colics. Please read on…

Chuck, 48, a busy psychotherapist, had sudden excruciating pain in his right upper abdomen. There had been a family history of gallbladder disease. Three or four homeopathic remedies were tried with no effect. One of them even aggravated the pain every time he took it during the attack. He had appalling pain, causing him to writhe on the floor and lasting four hours. He lost eighteen pounds in two months.

A Case of Parkinson’s Disease Cured with Homeopathy

He looked older than his fifty-nine years, with grey-white hair and wrinkled skin. Bill had worked for the local government as tax assessor, but had retired early because of his illness. He seemed withdrawn, as if profoundly depressed, and despite his regular habit of dressing in a suit and tie, he had disheveled and unkempt look.

We first saw Bill on January 31, 2001. He had already seen two neurologists. The diagnosis? Neurological exams confirmed the physical signs of Parkinson’s, although MRI and CT scans were not conclusive. However the two neurologists made the diagnosis independently of another.

Victory Over Serious Conditions – Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

In 2003, I received phone call from a man whose name I immediately recognized, although I had not been in contact with him for several years. Carl was in his early forties and had at one time attended The Homeopathic College.

Now, Carl sounded confused, disoriented, worried, and he was babbling, something about that he had to get back to his job. It took some active listening on my part to learn that he was calling from Duke Medical Center (Durham, NC, USA), where he had been hospitalized with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF for short).
