He began his studies privately in the mid 1970s and then studied at the College of Homeopathy in London. There followed studies at the:
- Greek School of Classical Homeopathy with George Vithoulkas, winner of the alternative Swedish Nobel Prize for Medicine; and his star student and colleague Dr Vassilis Ghegas in Alonissos, Athens and London;

Francis Treuherz was a regular teacher at homeopathy schools Manchester, Helsinki, Stockholm and Prague, and a part time staffer at the University of Westminster BSc course in homeopathy.
He has also lectured in Amsterdam, Dublin, Galway, San Francisco, Seattle... He was also a Trustee of the Homeopathy Action Trust for many years. He was editor of The Homeopath 1986-2003 and 2006-2010. Formerly a Board Member, Society of Homeopaths 1986-1996 and elected once again in March 2000 to the Board as Hon Secretary for 6 years. In April 2010 he was again elected to the Board of the Society of Homeopaths. As a prescriber in different settings, in the inner city and the suburbs, in private and public practice Francis has become a skilled homeopath who will devote as much personal attention to each distant patient as he does with those who visit his consulting room. He has been a Trustee of the British Homeopathic Assocation.
Francis has been a contributor and developer of MacRepertory and other special computer software for homeopathy since 1987. Since then he has used the program, promoted it, and trained hundreds people to use it in the UK, Ireland and internationally.
Until recently most homeopaths could only use a few books, and Francis has been in the forefront of the study of the literature and history of this field. During the years since 1974 he has collected more books on homeopathy than any other individual in the UK, some 10,600 volumes at the last count. Most are in English, many are in French and German. This means that in any consultation you will be accessing the wisdom of this literature, a unique feature of his working life.
He has also done many telephone consultations with distant patients for the homeopathic helpline since 1996, and this gave him the idea of consulting over the Internet. The result is this site which is his personally. There are no other sponsors.
Mr Treuherz is an acknowledged specialist in this field and has been widely published.
