Attack of the Killer Pseudoskeptics

Hom, DHMHS; Director, Magic Pills
Ananda began as a profound skeptic of homeopathy, having learned about it as part of a university course, she couldn’t understand how anyone could believe in such rubbish. That is, until a profoundly transformational experience while backpacking through India. After an initial encounter, where she felt dramatic relief from homeopathic pellets while dealing with a case of severe Delhi Belly, Ananda decided to visit an actual homeopath, for a proper consultation. The apparently miraculous cure she experienced after life long depression changed her trajectory in life. She always knew that she wanted to dedicate her life to helping others, and instead of going to law school she decided to pursue homeopathy as a career
Ananda graduated from the Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine in 2005, went on to study around the world with some of the most highly recognized homeopaths, and became co-owner of Riverdale Homeopathy, a clinic, bookstore, dispensary and general hub for everything homeopathic in North America. She has served on the council for the homeopathic regulatory body of Ontario as well as the board of the Ontario Homeopathic Association.
As a practicing homeopath, Ananda became increasingly disillusioned with the portrayal of homeopathy in mainstream media, particularly after being misrepresented by local magazines. She was familiar with the evidence base and was aware that the media was shaping a prejudiced narrative. She knew something had to be done to educate the public in a fair way, and give people the opportunity to decide for themselves and advocate for health choice freedoms. That is where the vision for Magic Pills arose and a 9-year journey of filmmaking and producing ensued.
“Working on the film and traveling to various places around the world, including Cuba, Tanzania, India, Switzerland and London, I got to witness first hand how homeopathy truly saves and impacts lives and that has transformed my own outlook. I met brain tumour survivors, diabetics, AIDS patients and hundreds if not thousands of individuals who thank homeopathy for easing their suffering and saving their lives. What I now understand is how vitally necessary it is for us to maintain access to this incredibly affordable medicine which the pharmaceutical industry cannot control and therefore fears. Homeopathy is seriously threatened globally and urgently threatened in the USA. I hope this film can make an impact and support the movement for continued access to this life saving medicine.”
