First, some news. This is going to be my last issue as the editor of this e-journal, Homeopathy for Everyone. Since everyone out there has started loving the Supremes so much and found the editorial of the last month such a ‘refreshing change’, I have decided to hang up my boots and retire before I am 30. Elaine is going to take on the job from the next month and you will find an mp3 attached with the editorial each month from now on!
Second, an apology for the ‘unsubscribe email’. A couple of weeks back, ALL of you received an email from Hpathy stating –
‘Dear xyz, If you do not like to receive ‘Homeopathy for Everyone’, the Free monthly homeopathic e-journal from Hpathy.com, please feel free to unsubscribe from our mailing list. We do not like to send spam or to send mails to people who do not like to receive them.”
The overwhelming response that we received in reply to this email has forced me to apologize for this email to all of you. It was not meant to be so personal but the new mailing software that we now use, inserted the names of the subscribers and made it look more personal than it was meant to be. The big question is – why did we send such an email in the first place? Well …what happened was that some of the subscribers out there reported our valid emails as spam and we received warnings from some big networks like aol. The last time this happened, we had to work hard for 6 months to get our servers white listed from AOL and now again someone reported our mail as spam. I was really annoyed and I said to myself ..ok! If there are people in our list who do not wish to receive our emails, I will give them a fair chance to unsubscribe from the journal. Some people can’t seem to locate the unsubscribe link included in every single mail that we send. So that was the reason behind that mail. We received hundreds of emails in reply – some of you replied in panic, lest they have done something wrong, others simply said they wanted to continue receiving the journal and some of your were upset by it. We realized that even in your anger and panic, there was love and respect for Hpathy and this ezine. Therefore I offer my sincere apologies to all of you who were taken aback with that email. There was no intention to ruffle your feathers.
Now we are done with all the preliminaries and its time to focus on this ezine issue again. For the September and the October issue, we are focusing on the Homeopathic Hospitals of the past, present and the future. Dr. Leela has been doing a lot of work for these special issues. With the help of the team and all of you who responded to our requests we have been able to come up with a very useful and rich issue. This month we again have Dr. Praful Barvalia in our Hot-Seat. Read the riveting interview and learn about the special work that Dr. Barvalia is doing with his organization Spandan. Read also about his upcoming homeopathic hospital – a mega project! Siegfried Letzel shares with us the history of homeopathic hospitals in Germany. There are many clinical cases from hospital settings and David Little continues with his Advanced methods of Homeopathy. There is much more – start reading right away!
