    One of the things that came up this weekend in different panels was the importance of protecting traditional medicines around the world. Some practices have been well documented for thousands of years (TCM, Ayurveda, TAIM, etc.), while others have simply been handed down in families or clans, generally through the maternal lineage.

    Even if some of the pharmacology may have changed from the older texts, the lessons learned are valuable ones and should be investigated for validity and not just considered "historic". Family recipes and traditions shouldn't be considered "old wive's tales".

    @jowitt.europe and @judsoncarroll4 will be interested to hear that Fr. Kneipp was mentioned a few times. There was one lecture all about hydrotherapy where he was the focus of the discussion.

    That is certainly my philosophy - empirical evidence! I want to get a lot more into the Water Cure next year.

    @torey how interesting that Kneipp is known so far away from his fatherland Bavaria. We have a lot of the so called Kneippanlage. I personally know at least 4 in the circle of 10 or less kilometres from where I live. His teaching is very alive here. And, I have noticed myself, that people are more and more interested in the old ways of staying healthy. Wise people know to cherish the old values.
