Boiron Lunch and Learn Event

I’ve been very health contiguous when it comes to the food we eat as a family for years. For me when studying the importance of eating real food and the effect on your body, I slowly starting looking at other ways I could keep our family healthy. One of the things I’ve become interested in is homeopathic medicine. We are a pretty healthy family to begin with, none of us (knock on wood) go to the doctor more than once a year, and we try to manage those common colds as natural as possible like with Oscillococcinum.

Over this past year at different events, I was able to meet some amazing women from the Boiron Marketing team. They gave me the low down on the homeopathic medicines, how they are made and how they work different than traditional medicines.

In January I was fortunate to have the opportunity to take a tour of the Northeast Boiron headquarters in Newtown Square PA. for a “Lunch and Learn” event. We were greeted by the CEO of Boiron Janick Boudazin and spent the morning with Christophe Merville the head Pharmacist and director of education at Boiron. Christophe gave us the a quick history lesson on the history of homeopathic medicine. Here are just a few facts, to learn more go here.

Facts of Homeopathic Medicine

1. Homeopathy was discovered by German doctor Samuel Hahnemann over 200 years ago.

2.  The first homeopathic school and hospital was started in 1833 Allentown PA

3. Cancer Centers are using more homeopathic medicines to help with side effects of radiation and chemotherapy.

4. Homeopathic medicine treats the patient not the disease. Homeopathic doctors believe that every person is an individual therefore we need to teach each person differently. There is no “One Size Fits All” approach.

5. Homeopathic medicine awakes and stimulates the power of the whole body and jump starts the immune system of that individual person which starts the healing.

6. Homeopathic medicine has no side effects

7. Homeopathic medicines are non additive

8. Every true homeopathic medicine is made using one substance — whether plant, mineral, metal, etc. The exact substance is known, unlike most modern drugs where we are rarely informed of the ingredients.

9. Homeopathic medicine is not tested on animals

10. In 2009, Nobel Prizewinner Luc Montagnier proves that homeopathy works

Some critics will say that homeopathic medicine is just hidden palcebo, and it is not a good form of treatment. We not only had a chance to hear from the experts in the field but were able to go into the Boiron lab and actually see how some of the homeopathic medicines were made. They had nothing to hide, that is for sure. We were shown how they make the different doses of the medicines by going through different steps of dilutions. Each step involves diluting 1 part medicine to 99% parts alcohol or water. The whole process was amazing, you can learn more about the making process on the Boiron website.

Not sure how to go about what is the best homeopathic medicine for you? Boiron now has a medicine finder app that will make your life so much easier. You can also check out all the different types of homeopathic medicines Boiron supply for adults and children that help with common colds, muscle aches and pains plus more.

I want to thank BoironUSA for giving us the opportunity to spend the day learning more about the history of homeopathic medicines and how they are working with individuals to make their lives healthier through natural ways. All my opinions are my own.
