As a homeopath he believed that a natural remedy is also for every ailment in addition to traditional medicine. Over the years, his interest in plants increased. He believed that the dew that lay on the flowers, absorbed the healing powers of the plant and therefore he collected the dew as medicine for his patients. Later he devised a way to produce healing dew himself. In the bright sunlight he had freshly picked flowers floating on pure spring water for some time.
