This is the original conference, "accept no imitations".


  1. To revisit and examine the medical paradigms and treatment techniques of ancient, Medieval and Renaissance Europe.
  2. To discover the ideological "babies" of medicine tossed out with the bath water with the 18th century's wholesale changeover to our current western biochemical model of medicine.
  3. To compare indigenous and traditional European medical paradigms with those of Native America, India and China.
  4. To reconsider the validity of three traditional etiologies no longer acceptable to modern medicine: supernatural, astralic (from astrological influence), and karmic.
  5. To examine the evolution of Homo-centrism and its impact on modern western medical ideologies and treatment; environmental concepts, animal welfare.
  6. To encourage communication, respect and affection for living plants and animals.
