For the first time in the history of homeopathy a movie is made, by an American movie maker Laurel Chiten, which promises to bust some of the myths of homeopathy, and promote the science and its efficacy in its right form. This movie is slated for release on 6th April’17 in London.
We see this as a great honor for homeopathy, and sought this opportunity as a reason to get together homeopaths of Mumbai, and as a mark of our unity organize a screening of this movie on the Sunday, the 9th of April , 2017 (Birthday of Dr.Samuel Hahnemann on 10th April).
Many senior homeopaths have already extended their support. We also plan to invite some prominent faces from other industries, media, etc. We will also need your support, in which you can invite patrons you would know, survivors, and well wishers.
About the movie:
‘Just one drop’ A documentary film about homeopathy. The Mystery. The History. The Promise. Homeopathy is a medicine that people love, or people love to hate. Critics love to attack it. It’s been called everything from “ pseudo science” to “the ultimate fake medicine”. But what about all the people who have been helped by this alleged “fake” form of medicine? Just One Drop takes us on the journey of homeopathy, a system of medicine that is used by more than 200 million people on Earth. (http://www.justonedropfilm.com/)
