studied psychology and sociology before becoming a doctor. After completing his Ph.D., he went to live in Amsterdam in 1984, working as a homeopathic practitioner. In 1995 he set up a homeopathic medical center in Amsterdam where 6 homeopathic doctors are now based. Soon an even larger project is to be initiated: an integrated health center, involving more than 20 colleagues.
Literary activities have always been his passion. He has produced two longstanding journals in the Netherlands and Belgium and he is editor of the Dutch journal for homeopathic doctors “Similia Similibus Curentur.” Among other books, he co-authored with Guus Polderman a standard work on homeopathy “Homeopathie in de Praktijk” (Homeopathy in Practice), Voorhoeve, 1994.
