SHRI is a volunteer organization, providing free homeopathic medicine and health education to rural Indians and Tibetan refugees in the Indian Himalayas. Our vision is to provide a healing space and a stimulating forum, where the international homeopathic community can share inspired insight, in the light of exacting clinical work. Coming together with open hearts, through acts of selfless service, we provide healing and education to our local community, as well as, to the healers themselves.
Any pursuit of health must address the main causes of disease. Since September of 2010, SHRI Free Clinic has treated over 6,000 local residents with only homeopathic remedies. During this time, it has become glaringly obvious that many of the local resident’s health problems either stem from, or are seriously exacerbated by, three external causes: an extremely poor diet, toxic poisoning, and the careless use of allopathic medicines.
We are working to increase awareness of these three issues. We counsel all our patients on the dangers of uncontrolled and ill prescribed allopathic medicines. We offer homeopathic alternatives, and have affected the lives of many hundreds of patients simply by reducing or eliminating their random collections of unnecessary allopathic pills.
The problems of poor diet and toxic poisoning are a great health challenge, and require major life style changes. During medical consultations, we advise all our patients about the dangers of excessive consumption of white sugar, white flour, and bad fats. For the Tibetan refugee community, this is a most serious problem, as these foods make up the bulk of their diet. As a community in exile, their health has suffered terribly from eating these modern, store bought versions of their traditional agrarian foods. This is especially true for the monks and nuns, who have no choice but to eat what is offered to them.
“People are fed by the food industry, which pays no attention to health, and are treated by the health industry, which pays no attention to food.” -Wendell Berry
