In this class, we will talk about Homeopathic Prophylaxis (HP) as a safe way to “educate” our immune system.
So what is Homeoprophylaxis?
It is the use of homeopathic medicines to protect the individual from a certain disease or affliction. In this class, we will focus on the use of HP to prevent infectious disease. Especially childhood infectious diseases. We will talk about the work of Free and Healthy Children International (FHCI). To read about the work they do, go here. FCHI is a non-profit dedicated to research, education and access to HP.
OK, so you’re thinking: Does California (or any state for that matter) consider enrollment in FCHI’s homeoprophylaxis program as meeting state mandated requirements for immunization?
We’ve added a new feature to the Transition Albany website: email notification of Posts and Events. Now you can keep up with new material without having to worry about remembering to check the website.
Subscribing to email notification is simple. Below the “Upcoming Events” section on the right side of the Home Page you’ll see a box that appears as follows:
Just enter your email address and click the “Subscribe” button in the side bar to the right of the announcement on the Home Page. You’ll immediately receive an email with a link to confirm your subscription.
Each time a new Post or Event is added to the website, you’ll receive an email. The email will contain an excerpt, followed by a link to the entire article.
If you decide you no longer wish to receive the notifications, there’s an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email.
That’s it! We hope you find this new capability useful.
On Earth Day, April 22nd, we will launch Transition Albany Health Group’s Medicine-Making Series. And we start with how to make your very own Calendula tincture! It’s the perfect time. Calendula blossoms are everywhere. Gorgeous blossoms that follow the sun from sunrise to sunset. If you walk around the neighborhood, you’ll see them.
What’s Calendula officinalis and why should you bother making a tincture out of it? Well, it is only the number one homeopathic remedy for open wounds! I routinely slice off tips of my fingers and I’ve never had to have any of it stitched up. I simply spray Calendula on the open wound and the next day I only have a pink spot. Yes, yes, only slivers of my flesh were cut off, but enough to cause profuse bleeding, etc. But with my Calendula around, no more open wound. No infection. No scar. If you have children who occasionally lose the skin off their knees, etc., Calendula can easily become your best friend, if not already.
So wouldn’t you like to know how to make your own stash of this awesome vulnerary?
Thought so. (more…)

A week after Earth Day, 2014, join us for a major screening of the 2012 documentary Arise, described by Huffington Post as “transformative,” and by the New York Times as a “genuinely felt letter to the world.” While many films about the state of the planet leave one feeling depressed, the film makers have made this an experience that will uplift you and inspire action!
Transition Albany and Transition Berkeley are screening Arise
for one night only as a benefit for our local heroes, Planting Justice
Tickets can be purchased from the Albany Twin Theater box office (and online) for $10 ($8 for seniors and students) after April 15th.
Narrated by Daryl Hannah, Arise captures the portraits and stories of extraordinary women around the world who are coming together to heal the injustices against the earth. The film does a beautiful job of covering food justice issues round the world and weaves together poetry, music, art and stunning scenery to create a hopeful and collective story that inspires us to work for the earth.
Written, directed and produced by Lori Joyce with Candace Orlando, Arise has won numerous film awards, and Executive Producer Molly Stone will be present at our screening to answer questions after the film.
Please come, bring friends, and get inspired by the film’s vital message about the power of women (and all Earth’s citizens) to lead far-reaching environmental change.
