Mangialavori comes from Naples and grew up in Milan and Modena.
In 1984 he completed his medical studies. His eventful search for the best method of healing took him from heart surgery to the shamans of South America. Then he stumbled on homeopathy, which has since cast its spell over him.
Together with three other doctors, he set up a practice outside Modena, where he now treats patients from all over the world.
Mangialavori has an astonishing knowledge of the materia medica and is regarded as one of the best homeopathic physicians in the world. Based on his successfully healed cases, he has developed his own system of classifying homeopathic remedies.
He regularly holds seminars in Europe and the USA, and leads further education courses for homeopaths in Modena and Boston.
