Robin Murphy was born August 15, 1950 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He carried out his undergraduate studies at Michigan State University; graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree. At the Michigan State University and the University of Michigan libraries he discovered large collections of homeopathic books and became intrigued with the system it described. He studied the old clinical journals and hospital records of homeopathic practice in the past.

In 1976 he entered the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (NCNM) in Portland, Oregon. There he won the Hahnemann Scholarship for his thesis on "Homeopathy and Cancer." Right after graduating Dr Murphy directed the homeopathy program at NCNM from 1980-1984, and also taught at Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington.

He is an internationally recognized author and researcher of Homeopathy and Medical Qigong as well as one of the most well-known teachers of homeopathy in the world with extensive teaching and clinical experience. As one of the earliest seminar teachers in the 1980's, Dr Murphy was responsible for introducing many people to homeopathy.

Now, the Homeopathic MetaRepertory, 4th ed., and Nature's Materia Medica, 3rd ed. are standard textbooks used in many homeopathic colleges in Europe, Japan and India.

Since 1987 Dr Murphy has been the director of the Lotus Health Institute which sponsors seminars on homeopathy, medical qigong, herbs, and natural medicine.
