Tomás Pablo Paschero
Tomás Pablo Paschero was born in Buenos Aires in 1904, the son of an immigrant Italian cattle slaughterer and an Argentinian mother. He disobeyed his father’s wish that he should run the family butcher’s shop and left to study medicine at the University of Buenos Aires, supporting himself throughout his studies. He first encountered homoeopathy while working as an obstetrician, seeing an apparently intractable case of eczema completely resolved by it.
In 1934 he travelled to the United States on an extensive research trip, working with Dr William Griggs, Dr Eugene Underhill and Dr Julia M. Green. He was then accepted as a disciple by Dr Grimmer, with whom he formed a close personal and professional relationship.
Dr Paschero was elected President of the International Homoeopathic Medical League in 1973. He died in 1986
