MAGIC PILLS: PROMISE OR PLACEBO?
Homeopathy is one of the most widely used forms of medicine on the planet; however, despite its popularity, it is now a favorite target of skeptics and de-bunkers. The controversy surrounding homeopathic medicine is founded in the assumption that something so highly diluted cannot work without violating the laws of chemistry. Magic Pills challenges viewers to decide for themselves by presenting new scientific discoveries, and real world successes that challenge these assumptions.
Many medical journals refuse to publish positive studies due to systemic bias. The media can distort the truth by omitting information. The stakes are immense, if homeopathy works, it could transform the medical system and provide safe, affordable effective medicine. Is the truth being buried?
Journey with Ananda to Tanzania, where for the past 25 years a husband-and-wife duo of homeopathic doctors are using their skills to help thousands of HIV/AIDS patients in the most remote regions of the country. To Cuba, where she was the only non-citizen given permission to tell the story of how homeopathic medicine given to millions of people stopped an epidemic in just a few weeks. To Kolkata, India, where the Banerji Clinic is having unparalleled success treating otherwise incurable brain tumors and other forms of cancer. To Mumbai, India where an MIT trained chemical engineer has discovered nanoparticles in the most dilute medicines. And finally to Switzerland, where a government-commissioned study resulted in homeopathy being covered by the national health program.
