      Marriott Courtyard - Lake Nona, Orlando, FL       
      The topic was  "Aging Well with Homeopathy with  Robin Murphy, N.D.
  


Friday evening found early arrivers reconnecting with other early arrivers at the hotel, then many pitched-in to help prepare for our annual book sale and enjoyed a very special private screening and Director's Q & A of Ananda Yamrit More's film, “Magic Pills”. Both Saturday and Sunday conference mornings started at 7 AM for a QiGong class for longevity led by Robin Murphy, a recognized instructor!


Then, we experienced two days of fantastic teaching on “aging well with homeopathy”. Great content and great socializing! Dr. Murphy discussed the benefits of using homeopathy as we age, including: 10 tips for longevity, remedies to support/correct the digestive process, balance acidic conditions, reduce inflammation, increase immune function, stimulate lymphatic flow, increase vitality, decrease pain, stiffness and depression. We missed the registrants who could not join us at the last minute and are very appreciative of those who turned their un-used attendance fee into a donation! We were fortunate to have so many wonderful gently-used book donations for a book sale, and we also had “trick-tray” raffles. On Saturday evening, we had the opportunity to catch up with long-time and new friends at dinner.

We were lucky to have long-time friend, FHS member, and ardent supporter of Florida homeopathy, Bob Luzader, who came as usual from Tennessee to attend the annual conference. We took the opportunity to celebrate his 90th birthday!

Kim Elia is one of the Homeopathic world’s most accomplished teachers. His enthusiastic, dynamic, humorous, and upbeat style engaged us as he brought remedies to life.

Kim’s intent is to bring the homeopathic community together and to contribute to the training of effective practitioners who will bring homeopathic medicine forward into the mainstream.

At a time in our history when increasing numbers of people are searching for help with mental and emotional disturbances, being able to offer safe, effective and affordable homeopathic treatment is a service to humanity. In this special class for the FHS, Kim explored the challenges involved, shared Hahnemann's perspective from the Organon, and covered materia medica and differential diagnosis for the most commonly encountered mental and emotional conditions, with a special focus on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Disorder. Other conditions discussed included: Manic Depression, Anxiety, Depression, Neuroses, Phobias and more. Kim’s students readily attest to his ability to present materia medica and the all-important remedy differentials in a vibrant and memorable format. Over the course of the weekend, Kim offered case examples and differentiating points among the most commonly indicated remedies, ensuring participants an enhanced understanding of the effective use of homeopathy in working with this patient population.
