Many people in the last two hundred years have discovered the wonder of homeopathy.
There are most probably over a hundred thousand American homeopaths, millions of Indian homeopaths, hundreds of thousands of South American homeopaths, and tens of thousands of European homeopaths.
This list does not include the many hundreds of thousands of homeopaths from other countries, including Iran, the Far East, the Middle East – in fact homeopathy has spread to every country in the World – and this list does not include any of the many millions practicing homeopathy today.
This homeopathic history project is focused on the hidden history of Europe, as told by the homeopathic journals and publications which are, to some extent, only now coming to light with the advent of Google.
This list is a compilation of all the biographies done so far (and also check out Sylvain Cazalet’s fabulous site for loads more information and hundreds of homeopathic photos PHOTOTHÈQUE HOMÉOPATHIQUE) (*photo used courtesy of Homéopathe International by Sylvain Cazalet at PHOTOTHÈQUE HOMÉOPATHIQUE):

Samuel Stratten (?1794-?1836) (Information from Rhoda Ui Chonaire, The Homeopathic Times, Volume 15, No: 1, The Dublin Organon of 1833, (Spring 2013). Pages 3-5. Samuel Stratten MD (licence as assistant apothecary granted 1.9.1815; Licentiate 1823) was an Irish orthodox physician who practiced in Dublin. He was born in Armagh, and then apothecary to the Meath Hospital by 1820-23. Stratten entered private practice in 1825, temporary physician at the Cork Street Fever Hospital in 1831, and in 1832-?1835, he is listed as Professor of Materia Medica and Pharmacy at the Apothecaries Hall in Dublin. In 1837, he is listed as a Licentiate in Physic at the College of Physicians at 19 William Street (today’s South William Street), though this is the last entry, so did he die, emigrate or retire afterwards? The first English translation of Samuel Hahnemann‘s Organon was put together by Charles H Devrient and edited by Samuel Stratten in Dublin in 1833. Samuel Stratten explained in the preface that he was first acquainted with homeopathy in 1828, when he met a Russian physician. An ‘… accidental interview with a Russian physician in 1828…’ This Russian physician must have been using a French or German version of the Organon, as the Russian version did not appear until 1835, (the French version was printed in 1824, though three German versions printed in 1810, 1819 and 1824 were also available). Stratten immediately procurred Samuel Hahnemann‘s Materia Medica Pura. He met Charles H Devrient, whose perfect ability in German and English translation led to the first English translation of the Organon. (The Freemans Journal 1763-1924; Date: Nov 22, 1836; Section: None; Page: 2, mentions a reference to the auction of Stratten’s books and lists titles of various books and describes him as the ‘… late Dr Samuel Stratten… ‘ in November 1836).
