Alain Naude, who had been practicing homeopathy in Baltimore, has passed away. He was a well known homeopath and a student of Indian philosophy. He is probably best known for the translation of the Sixth edition of the Organon that he did with Kunzli and Pendleton. His mentor was the Swiss doctor Pierre Schmidt. Recently he translated some of Schmidt's essays and published them as "The Art of Case Taking." He was a devoted Kentian practitioner and said that when he heard others say that they had corrected the mistakes of Hahnemann and Kent, he became sad. He was insistent that his clients not combine homeopathy with other modalities of medicines and tough out any aggravations they experienced. He emphasized the great amount of learning that homeopathy required. He said that it took him fifteen years of study before he would give a remedy to his cat. The other great interest in his life was Indian philosophy. For some time he was Krishnamurti's personal secretary and he was acquinted with many of the spirtual teachers of the East. He was also a concert pianist and a lover of French culture and cuisine. He was a colorful character and had many stories to tell about Pierre Schmidt and other well known homeopathic personalities.
