O Our current medical system is broken. It focuses on profits and disease, rather than people and wellness. It has few answers for chronic illness, and many of the treatments have side effects that can be worse than the original illness they’re meant to treat.
Homeopathy could be one of the more affordable and effective forms of medicine available. It’s been used to treat everything from Cancer to AIDS and even to prevent disease with very compelling results. There is an increasing body of evidence in the scientific literature to support the 200 years of clinical homeopathic experience, but this evidence is concealed and falsely ridiculed by a system afraid of alternatives.
We made this film to shine a light on the scientists, doctors, and health practitioners whose work has been hidden from the public, wrongfully discredited and silenced in the name of skepticism and public protection..
The film examines large scale use of homeopathy in disease prevention, cancer treatment and AIDS/HIV along with very compelling scientific research and evidence to support the idea that homeopathy is not only plausible but effective and affordable.
F Filmmaker and homeopath Ananda More, Hom, DHMHS explores multiple media campaigns against homeopathy, propelling her to travel the world and uncover whether homeopathy is truly science-based and effective or a mere placebo that endangers lives.
When meeting with scientists, skeptics, practitioners and patients, Ananda unravels the high drama and intrigue that envelops homeopathy today. Current science postulates that it can’t work because we can’t prove how it works. Similarly, in the past science could observe gravity and electricity before it could explain it. However, homeopathy is not granted the same latitudes or research, and instead is the target of attacks, which disregards ever-growing volumes of compelling data.
In her travels, Ananda sees how homeopathy is being used to treat cancer in India, support the use of antiretroviral medication for HIV/AIDS in Africa and prevent common epidemics in Cuba. She also visits and interviews scientists at university laboratories, where cutting edge experiments prove once again that maybe science can’t always explain how nature works. However, one thing becomes certain as intrepid professionals expose their work: homeopathy may offer a deep acting and gentle alternative in contrast to conventional medicine, which often focuses on toxic treatments that can have irreversible or life threatening side effects. With homeopathy-friendly Switzerland as the final stop, Ananda reveals how ultimately, those most affected by policies that support prolonged treatment and subsequent profits are the people themselves, who are now being denied accurate information about their health choices.
