Carlos Néstor Cámpora was born on April 10, 1964, in La Plata, Argentina.
Dr. Carlos Néstor Cámpora graduated as a physician in 1989 at Universidad Nacional de Ciencias Médicas of the city of La Plata, Province of Buenos Aires, with an outstanding general point average of 9,40, and obtained his degree as specialist in Internal Medicine in 1994.
Homeopathy found him at six years old as a patient, but he has been an ardent student of homeopathy since he was sixteen years old, when he started reading tirelessly the old classical masters. He is a certified Master in Homeopathy by Asociación Médica Homeopática Argentina.
Two study and research groups have been founded and directed by him in Argentina: in 1993 the Grupo Clínica Homeopática Dinámica, and, in 1997, the Grupo de Estudios e Investigación Médica Homeopática de la República Argentina.
He has been teaching Homeopathy since 1993; since then he has been a lecturer in congresses and seminars both locally and internationally ever since, he has been teaching in Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Germany, Austria, USA, France, Holland and Hungary; he is regularly asked to lecture as a guest speaker at many homeopathic institutions.
He has submitted numerous papers about the homeopathic treatment of severe chronic diseases, psychiatric diseases, arterial hypertension, sciatic and trigeminal neuralgia, infections of the middle ear, AIDS, etc; he has also performed detailed bibliographical and casuistic research on the homeopathic repertories and materia medica.
In 1998 he has designed the Double Protocol of Homeopathic Pathogenetic Trial (DPHPT) and has organized and directed the first provings performed in Argentina in fifty years; based on this, he conducted the proving of Loxosceles laeta (1998) (brown spider or killer spider) and Geranoetus melanoleucus (1999) (black-chested buzzard eagle). These are full hahnemannian provings performed by applying high quality methodological standards with the aim of selecting the most reliable and valid symptoms. Controversial and critic aspects about methodology of provings and the placebo symptoms in provings has been part of his papers and seminars in the last few years, and is a frequent lecturer at LMHI’s Congresses. He is also the author of the book: “The pathogenesis of Loxosceles Laeta, the spider of the corners, brown spider or killing spider”, in 1999.
Dr. Cámpora is also focused on the sistematic documentation in homeopathic practice and research on high-quality case reports; he is convinced that the study of cured clinical cases represents a source of valuable knowledge and inspiration for homeopaths and with the idea of sistematically collecting the results of the homeopathic practice he founded BRECHA (Banco de Reporte y Estudio de Casos Homeopáticos de Argentina) in 2003, since then he is the President of BRECHA.
He has developed the Homeopathic Formula for the Diagnosis of the Simillimum (HFDS)
a methodology based on Hanemann´s teachings, that applies modern science tools, mathematics and statistics to the scientific research, analysis, thinking, and understanding of clinical cases. By transforming the homeopathic cures from occasional, random and anecdotal into invariable, predictable, reproducible and systematic, the HFDS turns cured cases into true homeopathic evidence. He is well known for the publication of his high-quality reports of severe and cured clinical cases traditionally considered incurable, and his conferences about Evidence Based Homeopathy. He is also the author of the book: “Homeopathic Formula for the Diagnosis of the Simillimum: Approach Strategies for Clinical Cases” in 2013.
On 2006 the Faculty of Medicine of the Buenos Aires University designed him Director of the Annual Post-graduate Course “Theory and Practice of Homeopathic Medicine”.
Since 2009 the Asociación Médica Argentina distinguished Dr. Cámpora choosing him as the Director of the “Biennial Course Theory and Practice of Homeopathic Medicine”
He is teaching his homeopathic methodology in the Asociación Médica Homeopática del Uruguay dictating a biennial post-graduate course for homeopathic physicians that has begun in the year 2009 and continues at present.
