About Dr Benjamin J. Herr
Having been raised in a home with Homeopathic medicine as the choice of medicine used by his family, Benjamin Herr grew up with a keen interest in the Homeopathic approach to healthcare. His mother being a Homeopath for over 50 years, before her passing, handed over this family practice to Benjamin after 7 years of partnership together.
Upon this foundation, Benjamin went on to become a Homeopath by gaining his Master’s Degree in Homeopathic Medicine at the Durban University of Technology, later completing his compounding & dispensing license. From there he has been playing an active role in the profession on many levels. He has served as an elected member and Vice Chairman of the Professional Board for Homeopathic Medicine in South Africa on the Allied Health Professions Council of South Africa. He is also member of the Homeopathic Association of South Africa.
Benjamin Has attended many conferences on Homeopathic Medicine both Nationally and Internationally and was recently part of the organising committee for the Bi-annual South African National Homeopathic Congress. It is through these efforts that he hopes to bring Homeopathic Medicine and the many benefits it has to offer to more people in South Africa.
Together with running a full-time practice, Benjamin is involved with education, working with 2nd and 3rd year UCT medical students on clinical case studies and as an examiner. He also hopes to extend his practice into other areas of need by facilitating the opening of a Homeopathic Clinic in Langa. He has contributed significantly to Homeopathy in Cape Town and continues to do so.
