This week homeopaths around the world will celebrate WHAW (World Homeopathy Awareness Week) starting tomorrow, the anniversary of founder Samuel Hahnemann’s birth, on April 10th.
They will also pay tribute to a great homeopath, humanitarian and friend who died on March 2nd.
The focus for this year is Homeopathy for Trauma and Disasters. All over the world dedicated homeopaths are working in non-profits that bring healing to those in the most dire need.
Sadly, one of these dear souls, Vaikunthanath Kaviraj is now no longer with us. Kavi will be fondly remembered for his great sense of humor and his tireless philanthropic work.
Debby Bruck, founder of Homeopathy World Community and a staunch supporter of his emergency response work recalls, “Kaviraj started the Haiti Relief Group and whenever he heard about some natural disaster around the globe, he was ready to pick up at a moment’s notice and go there.”
Kavi’s other great contribution to Homeopathy was his writing on AgroHomeopathy. If you would like to show your appreciation for his life and work please visit and “Like” this memorial page, set up by his dear friend and colleague Iman Navab.
Iman has also invited people to join him tomorrow (April 10th) for a worldwide online celebration of Kavi’s extraordinary life.
People who have had personal experience of Homeopathy know how much it can help both people (and plants) in a wide range of emergency situations. Here is a very brief list of remedies that you may find helpful to have on hand.
- Arnica 30c of 200c is #1 for bruising, shock, exhaustion and physical trauma
- Calendula 30c or 200c lowers the risk of infection in wounds
- Hypericum 30c or 200c is good for nerve injuries and whiplash
- Silica 30c or 200c forces out splinters
- Aconite 30c or 200c helps with intense panic attacks
- Arsenicum 30c or 200c reduces anxiety and restlessness
- Ignatia 30c or 200c eases emotional shocks met with a sense of disbelief
In honor of Hahnemann’s birthday and WHAW 2013 I will be doing a Webinar with Live Q&A on Saturday 13th April, 2013. It will start at 11am West Coast time, 2pm East Coast time and 7pm GMT (UK).

Happy Homeopathy Awareness Week to all you lovers and supporters of Homeopathy. I will leave you all with a poem of mine, dedicated to Kavi.
Of all the planets
In all the galaxies
I am here on this one
Spinning its days around the sun
It’s nights bathed in moonlight
Calling the tides to ebb and flow
I sink my feet in forest floors
Bathe them in sweet streams
Soaking up its infinite wonders
And ever grateful
That for a time
You traveled with me
