Our Summer picnic is an annual Baltimore Study Group tradition. Once again Richard and Barbara meyers hosted the picnic at their home in Parkton. It was a lovely day and everyone had a great time. Click the thumbnails below for pictures from the picnic.
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.
Press articles about homeopathy from the web
Homeopathic remedies not always a solution

These remedies are, in fact, regulated by the FDA, but only as far as strength, quality, and purity are concerned FDA website.
Homeopathy not effective in asthma
A study shows that a homeopathic remedy was no better than placebo in treating asthma. Previous studies have suggested that homeopathy is effective in the treatment of both hay fever and asthma. The remedy would consist of a very highly diluted solution of the allergen â€ such as house dust mite for asthma, pollen for hay fever.
Homeopathy wastes taxes
I am appalled that in today's world an unproven 200-year-old non-treatment is seen as beneficial. It does mean to me that our schools don't teach enough applied science and chemistry. Once anyone understands chemistry, it is impossible to take Mr Banyard's comments and homeopathy seriously. Scientific illiteracy is a continuing problem for all of us when charlatans can sell snake oil for financial gain.
Unless there are aspects to the case not reported in the media, it appears that well-meaning ignorance is now a crime in Alberta. Homeopathic remedies are legal. Holistic medicine is legal. Advertising and selling alternative medicine is legal. Best efforts to deal with infection using ineffective remedies are no different than using magnetic insoles, wearing copper bracelets or taking nutritional supplements of dubious value.
Homeopathy attacks unfair
The aggressive and dismissive comments in your online forum almost certainly come from people who don't really know anything about homeopathy and almost certainly have never experienced it.
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder and Homeopathy
