Homeopathy found him at six years old as a patient, but he has been an ardent student of homeopathy since he was sixteen years old, when he started reading tirelessly the old classical masters. He is a certified Master in Homeopathy by Asociación Médica Homeopática Argentina.
Two study and research groups have been founded and directed by him in Argentina: in 1993 the Grupo Clínica Homeopática Dinámica, and, in 1997, the Grupo de Estudios e Investigación Médica Homeopática de la República Argentina.
He has been teaching Homeopathy since 1993; he has been a lecturer in congresses and seminars both locally and internationally ever since, and is regularly asked to lecture as a guest speaker at different homeopathic institutions.
He has submitted numerous papers about the homeopathic treatment of arterial hypertension, sciatic and trigeminal neuralgia, infections of the middle ear, AIDS, etc; he has also performed detailed research on the homeopathic repertories and Materia Medica.
In 1998 he has designed the Double Protocol of Homeopathic Pathogenetic Trial (DPHPT) and has organized and directed the first provings performed in Argentina in fifty years; based on this, he conducted the proving of Loxosceles laeta (1998) (brown spider or killer spider) and Geranoetus melanoleucus (1999) (black-chested buzzard eagle). These are full hahnemannian provings performed by applying high quality methodological standards with the aim of selecting the most reliable and valid symptoms. Controversial and critic aspects about methodology of provings and the placebo symptoms in provings has been part of his papers and seminars in the last few years, and is a frequent lecturer at LMHI’s Congresses. He is also the author of the book: "The pathogenesis of Loxosceles Laeta, the spider of the corners, brown spider or killing spider", in 1999.
Dr. Cámpora is also focused on the sistematic documentation in homeopathic practice and research on high-quality case reports; he is convinced that the study of cured clinical cases represents a source of valuable knowledge and inspiration for homeopaths and with the idea of sistematically collecting the results of the homeopathic practice he organized the Vitalis High-Quality Clinical Case Bank in 2003.
In the last years he has developed a sistematic methodology of approach and case analysis that allows to obtain more consistent and reliable results, and have made prescriptions more understandable, reasonable and successfull. He is well known for the publication of his high-quality reports of severe and cured clinical cases traditionally considered incurable.
In addition to his busy practice in Buenos Aires and La Plata, he is currently the Director of the Fundación Médica Homeopática Vitalis where he has been lecturing since 2000 as the main lecturer of the Annual Continuing Education Post-graduate Course in Homeopathic Medicine.
