Ralph Twentyman


Llewelyn Ralph Twentyman (1914–2010) ws born in the area of Wolverhampton, UK. Despite the chaos of World War I, he experienced an idyllic childhood in the countryside. He trained at Cambridge and University College Hospital, and later served in the RAF medical service in Habbaniya, Iraq. After release from the RAF, he trained in homeopathy at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital and became a senior member of the medical staff there. He was introduced to Karl König, founder of the Camphill Schools, which led to a fruitful working relationship and friendship, and Twentyman served as a trustee and Vice President of the Camphill movement until his death. König in turn introduced him to Dr Rita Leroi and Dr Kaelin who pioneered the use of mistletoe in the treatment for cancer. Twentyman introduced the mistletoe treatment of cancer as suggested by Rudolf Steiner and viewed anthroposophic methods as a valid extension of Hahnemann’s homeopathic approach. Twentyman edited the British Homeopathic Journal for twenty-one years and has lectured extensively. He passed away peacefully at home on April 29, 2010.
