John Martin Honigberger 1794 – 1869 MD was a Romanian orthodox physician who converted to homeopathy, and who introduced homeopathy into Afganistan, Egypt, Persia, Romania, Russia, Turkey, India and Pakistan (where he was known as Gholab Singh).
Georges de Bellio 1828 – 1894 was a Romanian aristocrat and a member of the Vacarescu family, and a homeopathic physician who worked at the Hahnemann Hospital in Paris, and who was a member of the Société Médicale Homœopathique de France.
Bellio left Roumania in 1850 and began to buy paintings by the then unknown Impressionist School, and he had paintings by Pierre Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Alfred Sisley and Camille Pissarro in his collection.

Bellio was a colleague of Paul Ferdinand Gachet,
