Just One Drop: A film about homeopathy screening announcement
The screening of Just One Drop: The History, the Mystery. The Controversy will take place in Bratislava at Ekonomická univerzita on 7th April 2017 at 6.30 p.m.
The screening is sponsored/hosted by Slovak Chamber of Homeopaths.
Homeopathy is a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. To many, homeopathy seems implausible. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse: a form of deception or quackery.
Yet, homeopathy has been around for over 200 years and used by millions around the world. JUST ONE DROP does not try to prove or disprove whether homeopathy works or doesn’t work. But it does aim to give homeopathy a voice, a voice that has been ridiculed and maligned for over 200 years.
JUST ONE DROP explores the controversy, and dispels myths and misconceptions about this special system of medicine. The film was made as an educational resource for anyone with a chronic illness, mothers with young children, those with elderly parents, and people who are frustrated by conventional medicine.
JUST ONE DROP is not just for proponents of homeopathy. Homeopathy skeptics have their questions raised and their point of view addressed in the film. Producer/director Laurel Chiten notes that “ Just One Drop raises a lot of questions, provokes emotions and inspires dialogue. It is my hope the film will stimulate a discussion and start to bridge the communication gap between conventional medicine and homeopathy.”
