From the film’s website, “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 of people around the world. The film explores the controversy, reveals the rich history, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy been given a fair shake.”

Press Release

There are 300 million people using homeopathy around the world. Are they all mad?

Just One Drop: The Story Behind the Homeopathy Controversy tells the little-known

story about a system of medicine used by 300 million people around the world.

Screenings throughout the U.S. are followed by discussions on this health care system

hotly debated by governments, the medical community, and others.

Proponents argue that the medicines have survived on the free market for 200 years

despite organized efforts to eradicate homeopathy. While research continues on how

these medicines work, there is sufficient evidence from clinical trials and everyday use to

demonstrate benefits and that the medicines do, in fact, work. Word-of-mouth success

stories propelled U.S. sales to $1.196 billion in 2015 for products that depend very little

on advertising compared to traditional over-the-counter medications.


Opponents there is a lack of quality studies on homeopathic products, and that the theory behind

how the therapeutic system works is scientifically implausible.

‘Just One Drop’ interviewed advocates and skeptics across three continents to dispel myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair chance. The film challenges the current exclusionary mindset of modern medicine and could radically change how one views illness, health, and healing. Ultimately, the question of freedom of choice in health care is raised.

The film was received well during tours in England and Australia earlier this year. As one review from The Optimist Daily states: “Just One Drop may not end the controversy but it will help more people find a solution for many acute and chronic conditions that conventional medicine has no answer for. Just One Drop deserves a wide audience in a time with an increasing need for better health care solutions.”
