Sherr studied Homeopathy at the College of Homoeopathy in London in 1980. He also studied Acupuncture at the International College of Oriental Medicine (apparently without noticing that the theories and disease models of homeopathy and acupuncture are mutually exclusive). He founded the "Dynamis School", a "post-graduate homeopathy course" (i.e. diploma mill) in 1987. He began study and research in homeopathic provings in 1982 with a proving of Scorpion, apparently. It's unclear how this was done since the traditional Hahnemann method of proving involves giving people a dose strong enough to cause tangible symptoms. With scorpion? Good luck with that.
