Sue Young B.Sc., FSHoM

My name is Sue Young and my passion is Homeopathic history and the history of Humanity. My studies were inspired by the sterling work begun by Dana Ullman in his very influential book The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy.

Before I began my website, I wrote The Lost Book of History, the first attempt by a Homeopath to study the whole history of Humanity as a whole from our very origins. This was followed by Three Lost Books of Healing.

I hold a BSc in Psychology and an FSHOM in Homeopathy, having been in Homeopathic private practice for over 30 years, I have been writing Homeopathic history constantly for nearly 50 years. In 2022, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the founding of Dr Manish Bhatia’s, I was honoured to be among those recognized with an Award for Excellence in Homeopathy for my contributions to

I’m intensely pleased and proud to surrender my body of work to the Hahnemann House Trust and the very capable and precious hands of my esteemed colleague and friend Mel Draper, who will confidently carry this wonderful work into our Homeopathic future.
