…..Schmit assures me of, namely. that Metternich has taken globules of Cuprum as a prophylactic

Metternich’s wife was a patient of Matthias Marenzeller,

In fact, homeopathic medicine was prohibited under Metternich in 1819 due to the old medical legislation which threatened penalties to doctors who produced their own remedies ( Hahnemann: the adventurous career of a medical rebel. Martin Gumpert. L.B. Fischer, 1945. Page 176 onwards), though Metternich and his family became strong advocates of homeopathy (The British Journal of  Homeopathy. Vol. XIJohn James Drysdale , John Rutherford Russell, Robert Ellis Dudgeon. 1853. Page 494).

Metternich had good reason to be grateful to homeopathy for the life of his General Johann Josef Wenzel Graf Radetzky von Radetz, and in 1870 a second hospital for homeopathy opened its gates in Pest. Its benefactress was Countess Zichy (nee von Metternich).
