In part 1 of a 2 part program, Jack “The Agnostic” Garcia provides in depth analysis on the amazing life and work of the great Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, the brilliant 18th Century physician and the father of modern Homeopathy. The good doctor who never stopped writing and experimenting, was persecuted by the orthodox medical establishment for his radical views and more effective holistic system of plant, animal and mineral remedies. Dr. Hahnemann raged like a roaring hurricane against the traditional physicians of his day, who attempted to cure the sick with massive amounts of bloodletting, purging, vomiting, sweating and the ingestion of often deadly concoctions. His system of natural healing would slowly gain disciples all over Europe and spread across the Atlantic and around the world.
