American homeopath and occultist known for a number of 1910s ‘chemistry of life’ publications, a subject which he referred to as biochemistry, particularly his 1919 The Chemistry of Human Life, all generally using a mixture of religion, astrology, physiology, anatomy, and chemistry, themed particularly with a mineral-based theory of human disease. Carey is popular among homeopathic and new age circles. In the context of a person viewed as a "human molecule", Carey was the first to state that a person's body is a “chemical formula in operation.”

Carey was influenced by Wilhelm Heinrich Schüßler ideas about "cell salts". He founded his own biochemical college.

He died 16 November 1924 , San Diego, CA.
