The Marquise Marie Melanie d’Hervilly Gohier Hahnemann

The story of Samuel Hahnemann and his wife Melanie is a fascinating tale of passion, accomplishment, compassion, determination and much, much more. Previously maligned by the international homeopathic community for almost 150 years, Melanie's role as a catalyst for the growth of homeopathy is just beiginning to be acknowledged.

Some interesting facts about Melanie Hahnemann:

- she dressed as a man to travel from France to Germany for her first meeting with Hahnemann as it was too dangerous at that time for women to travel on their own

- she was called "my finest student," and "the best homeopath in Europe" by none other than Hahnemann himself

- In 1840, the Allentown Homeopathic Academy in Philadelphia, founded by Hering, sent Melanie a diploma which Hahnemann had requested for her when he was alive. The diploma made her the first woman with a license to practice medicine from an American medical school.

- It was not until a generation later that a French woman was to receive a medical degree

- Melanie was the first female homeopath in Europe

Her letters and casebooks have revealed her as one who was the perfect counterpart to Hahnemann, one who quite literally freed him from an atrophied resignation, inspiring him to carry his work to an extent which is now just coming to light. This was the legacy, which she protected until her death.

There is a wonderful article outlining in detail this courageous woman's place in history http://www.hahnemanninstituut.nl/1/106/melanie-hahnemann/
