About Martine Mercy

I was born in a suburb of Paris in the spring of 1953 and at nineteen, I moved to England to study chiropractic at the Anglo European Chiropractic College in Bournemouth.

After graduating from the college as a chiropractor (Dr Martine Dirlik) in 1976, I ran a busy practice from my own surgery in Christchurch until 2001.

As I always took a keen interest in Homoeopathy, I decided to study whilst running my chiropractic surgery and I graduated from the Regent’s Park Homoeopathic College in London and practised Homoeopathy for 27 years since 1993 until end 2020. During this time I presented at many professional seminars and workshops in the UK.

Now retired from practising homoeopathy , I prefer to pass on my knowledge to both students and colleagues by writing books on new homoeopathic remedies. I have also developed an interest in art and cinema from the Belle Époque in France. My great grand father Vincent Lorant Heilbronn, born in 1874, was a French artist, painter, decorator, poster artist and film director who worked with Pathé. Looking into family history, I felt his life and his work should be brought to light and I decided to write his biography.

My aim in life is to balance my own love of painting with continued research into new remedies made from fossils. I currently live in Dorset, in Highcliffe on Sea and I am a registered homoeopath with the Alliance of Registered Homoeopaths (ARH).
