Roger van Zandvoort
      Roger was born in Heerlen, Holland, when aged 20, he went to the ‘Nederlandse Akademie voor Natuurgeneeskunde’ in Hilversum, the Netherlands. Due to his deep knowledge of phytotherapy, acquired before and during this study, he was invited to start lecturing as soon as he finished his study at the Academy, while already making the phytotherapeutic lecturing material.

In 1982 he started to work on additions and corrections of Kent’s Repertory, initially without intention to publish. At that time all his work was for the benefit of his patients, but gradually he dedicated less time to them and more time to his work on the repertory. From these efforts sprang a database, the “Complete Repertory”, that started to be used commercially in combination with MacRepertory (Kent Homeopathic Associates). Later follows association with ‘CARA’ (Miccant and Hompath), and now it is also joined by Comrep (Samuel), EZ4U (Jacques Paris), Quest for Similimum (Atul Systems) and Remedy (Samurai International). In 1990, guided by Dr. Künzli and later by Hansjoerg Hee and Dario Spinedi, 40 medical doctors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland started the huge operation to integrate Boger’s Boenninghausen Repertory into the Complete Repertory. During 6 years Roger received and integrated their work into the Repertory.

After 20 years of work, consisting of updating and improving the Complete Repertory, Roger is still working full - time on this project, now called Repertorium Universalis. He is including classic works from Germany and the United States that have never been used, like Noak, Trinks, Possart, provings from German magazines, articles from the old American journals and, most important, the handwritten additions that Boenninghausen made in his last two repertories - “Systematisch Alphabetisches Repertorium der nicht - antipsorischen Arzneien” and the “Systematisch Alphabetisches Repertorium der antipsorischen Arzneien” - which were compiled, based on clinical confirmations from his practice.
