Robin Murphy, ND

Dr. Robin Murphy was born August 15, 1950 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He carried out his undergraduate studies at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. There he discovered their homeopathic collection and became intrigued with the system it described.

In 1976 he entered the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM), on a Hahnemann Scholarship. While at the school he studied with Dr. Ravi Sahni and Dr. John Bastyr. He directed the homeopathy program at NCNM from 1980-1984. He also taught at Bastyr University.

Dr. Murphy was one of the earliest seminar teachers and is responsible for introducing many people to homeopathy. He takes a practical approach to homeopathic education, bringing clarity to the interrelation between philosophy, materia medica, and repertory work.

He published the Homeopathic Medical Repertor in 1993, and the Lotus Materia Medica in 1996. He is the director of the Hahnemann Academy of North America which sponsors seminars on homeopathy and natural medicine.
