Homeopathy was introduced into the UK by Dr F H F Quin (1799-1878) in the 1830's.
After graduating MD in 1820 in Edinburgh, Dr Quin then became the Duchess's family
physician and travelled with her entourage. He met Dr Hahnemann (1755-1843), the founder
of homeopathy, and travelled extensively in Europe, residing for a time in Rome and
Naples. He is said to have successfully used Camphor against Cholera in Moravia
(Czechoslovakia) and to have cured himself of the condition by following Hahnemann's
During the 1830's and 40's he spent a lot of time in Paris among the inner
circle of Hahnemann's proteges. Being already fluent in French he 'became very
highly respected in France and was considered Hahnemann's greatest successor...
he spent a year in Paris and continued to correspond with Hahnemann until Hahnemann's
death.''Quin was revered by the French as Hahnemann's greatest successor.'
Hahnemann occupied a special seat as Honorary President of the Gallic Homeopathic Society
: 'after his death this honour was transferred to the English Dr Quin...' He introduced homeopathy into the very highest levels of English society: to Dukes, Counts, Lords, minor Royals and Baronets. That was the world he was at ease with and in which he had moved since birth. As a young man he was a very popular socialite and wit on the fashionable London circuit, a great friend of Charles Dickens (1812-1870), William Thackeray (1811-1863) and the Royal portraitist, Sir Edwin Landseer (1802-1873), amongst many others, and no society party, or social gathering, it was said, was complete without him. By nature of a very pleasing disposition, he was a man of great personal charm. Often called the 'last of the English wits' , and 'a notorious dandy' he was also latterly one of the regular dining partners of Edward,
Prince of Wales (1841-1910), the future King Quin seems to have concentrated
exclusively on introducing homeopathy amongst medically qualified doctors and their
predominantly upper-class clientele.This level of high society support for
homeopathy, generated by Quin's efforts, worked enormously to its advantage and greatly
assisted its easy acceptance into the British medical marketplace in UK.
The fact that many of the German relatives of the British Royal family were also devoted
patrons of homeopathy, including Queen Adelaide (1792-1849), wife of King William IV
(1765-1837), probably also assisted its rapid social acceptance in Britain. Rich
patrons of homeopathy (eg. the first Marquess of Anglesey, 1768-1854) not only formed its
client-base, but also funded and numerically dominated the committees which ran the many
homeopathic hospitals and dispensaries of the last century.
Homeopathy is based on experimental pharmacological and clinical data in UK. Over the years,
homeopathic medicines UK have been extensively studying for their efficacy in a variety of
indications. Clinical studies have been conducted in UK as well as other countries.
In fact, ther "Allopathy" was coined by the founder of homeopathy whom the allopaths
regard as the founder of experimental pharmacology.
