In honor of World Homeopathy Awareness Week, we are hosting three live streams of the film followed by Q&As. Thank you for joining the discussion.
JUST ONE DROP tells the little-known story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine. 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 is used by millions worldwide. The film takes us on a journey of this hotly-debated medical practice and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake.
