Manfred Mueller: Good question. We start by discontinuing any medications that we responsibly can. Then we find a similar medicine to the most recent drug disease. This information can only be obtained by the symptoms and their history, i.e. when they began, etc, and comparing it to when the drug began. Hahnemann advised us to identify an illness by finding its cause, removing the cause and then addressing the illness
Kensy: So if someone has a candida problem from antibiotic overuse, you would first treat their candida with homeopathic candida and then treat their disease?
Manfred Mueller: kensy, no, Candida is not a cause, it is an effect of a disorder. But I would counteract the antibiotic disease. It is very cumbersome to find the simillimum for each drug disease in today’s world because of multiple sophisticated drugs that contain adjuvants designed to hide the drug’s symptoms. This makes it difficult to see the full drug disease picture.
Fortunately, there is an alternative. For example, In the case of mercury, we have known mercury antidotes, which we can select from. Homeopaths in the late 19th century also discovered that drug diseases could removed (or the drug’s long term secondary effects could be antidoted) by giving the drug in potency.
For example, when Margaret Tyler saw a patient with severe constipation and sticky, soft stool and then found out the patient had been using aluminum pots for the past 30 years, Margaret quickly prescribed Aluminum which quickly resolved the constipation.
J. Compton Burnett reported that he could not get any response with indicated remedies in patients that had been given Ether for surgery. In these cases, his first remedy was Ether 30C which removed the “ether” disease and subsequent indicated remedies were now able to achieve the desired results
Today’s complex chronic illnesses are the result of years of drugging. And even multiple doses of Sulphur cannot restore order and bring out the original acquired or inherited disorder. In fact, the disorder had taken a whole new shape and is almost unrecognizable. How do we bring order to these cases?
Kensy: I’m sorry, I don’t understand. I see many patients suffering from systemic candida from over-use of antibiotics. Why not treat the symptoms of candida with homeopathic candida?
Manfred Mueller: kensy, because the symptoms of candida are only there when there is a reason for candida to form. For example, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, PhD, MD and his team discovered that in order to prevent cell death from mercury, the immune system stands down and allows candida to grow. If we treat candida, we are fighting the symptoms and not the cause, even if we only use homeopathy.
In this case, in true Hahnemannian fashion, we must first remove the mercury which enters the body and hides in the nucleus of the candida cells. The body wants it there. It uses the candida to prevent harm (cell death) from mercury. To really remove candida, we need to remove the mercury.
This is true for many other microbial diseases such as streptococcus, staphylococcus, herpes, etc. For more information on this topic, you may want to get a copy of my disc on “Treating Modern Mercurialism”
However, today’s chronic diseases are mostly iatrogenic, toxic and environmental in nature.
Francia: In the case of psoriasis, do we need to know the constituents of the multiple drugs that caused the drug disease? As you said earlier, it’s very hard today to identify the picture in these cases.
Manfred Mueller: So how do we bring clarity into a complex case? Most American patients present with a complex chronic, iatrogenic disorder. It is a disorder that has evolved out of multiple dissimilar drug diseases, none of them curing the previous one, each of them existing side by side in the same organism. It was an evolution of suppression over time.
When you analyze the past symptoms of patients you will find that the disease proceeds in the reverse of Hering’s law with each renewed suppression. Each suppression produces a new disease in a more vital organ which is again suppressed, and so on, by the next suppression.
Francia: How do we reverse the process safely?
Manfred Mueller: We start with the most recent drug disease and give the potentized drug. Then a few days later, we give the potentized drug for the next drug disease, in the reverse chronological order. We also remove the effects of vaccines, using the potentized vaccines, etc.
If you do this systematically, before giving a constitutional remedy and give the constitutional remedy in a mild Q potency, you will almost never encounter an acute exacerbation of symptoms.

Razell: What potency do you use, and how often do you administer the remedy? Secondly, do you do this with patients that have life-threatening illnesses for which the suppressive medicine keeps them alive?
Manfred Mueller: Razell, to clear the effects of drugs, I prefer the 30 C potency in split water doses, 3 doses daily for 3 days for each drug. Yes, the more life threatening the more important this is. However in cases where the medication substitutes something the body no longer produces, i.e. thyroid, this is not done
Ivy: I had a client I truly wanted to help. She suffered from depression panic attacks, Morton’s Neuroma, and a history of surgeries for tarsal tunnel syndrome. She personally decided to stop some medications before she asked me for help. She had attempted suicide (some time ago). When she came for homeopathic help she was taking Vicoden PRN plus Cymbalta and Altace for blood pressure. Finally my question; since she was born to drug-abusing parents, should I not have started treatment with one of the opiates?
Manfred Mueller: No you should not have started with one of the opiates. You start in reverse chronological order with the most recent drug first. It is important to remember to treat what is in front of you presently and not try to overburden or overtax the vital force to try to throw off multiple dissimilar disorders first. It can’t, it won’t, it will just aggravate. The vital force can only respond to the similar medicine while the dissimilar disorder will sit there like a rock in the road…Immovable.
