Alfred Vogel


Swiss phytotherapist, nutritionist and writer. As a child, he became familiar with medicinal plants through his father and his grandparents. At the age of 21, he moved to Basel to manage a herb and health store. He began to advise his customers on his philosophies of life, and also began to prepare his own remedies to sell to his customers. In 1927, he married Sophie Sommer; together they had two daughters. In 1929 he started publishing a monthly magazine, Das Neue Leben ("the new life"). From 1941 this became A. Vogel Gesundheits-Nachrichten ("health news"). In the 1930s, Vogel relocated to Teufen in Appenzell, a part of Switzerland where medical professions were not supervised by the state, attracting many alternative medicine practitioners. He experimented further with herbal remedies, and made the discovery that fresh herbs were much more effective than dried ones.

Alfred Vogel was a member of Jehovah's Witnesses. The Dutch branch of the company (Biohorma) was (at the time) in the hands of Dutch Jehovah's Witnesses, especially the family of co-founder Bolle.

Vogel died on 1 October 1996, aged 93.
