Born in 1951, he
has been intensively involved in homeopathy since he studied
medicine, graduating with a dissertation on “Homeopathy for General
Medical Practice.” In the early days, he studied the classical
homeopaths, particularly Hahnemann and Kent. He undertook his
clinical training in orthodox and holistic hospital settings. In 1983
he established a general practice with his colleague Herbert Sigwart in
Kandern, where he has worked since as a homeopath.
He found homeopathic inspiration from the works of G. Vithoulkas, H. V. Müller, Rajan Sankaran and in particular Jan Scholten, with whom he has had ties since 1993.
He is particularly interested in the ongoing development of homeopathic classification (the periodic table, botanical and zoological families) and integrating these with the new methods involving color preference and handwriting. He has given seminars in Germany, the Netherlands, Canada, and Japan.
