Mattei’s interest in healing had apparently been awakened by a mangy stray dog who ate certain herbs and plants as a consequence of which he soon recovered. At the beginning of the 1860s the press had discovered Mattei who, among other things, treated poor patients free of charge.

Zimpel became an ardent follower of Hahnemann’s doctrine through Arthur Lutze while working in his hospital for five months in the winter of 1848/49. 255 He settled in Italy where the law allowed him to treat foreigners only. The development of his preparations took up all his time so that he hardly had any opportunity to gain experience in therapy.

What can be said with certainty is that he manufactured and sold spagyric remedies for some time. The spagyric practitioner Carl Zimpel obtained his homoeopathic remedies from him.
