Our story began with Penny Barron, mum of three children. When they were little, their health problems made mothering them relentless hard work and the sleepless nights were driving Penny beyond human limits. She despaired about the children’s recurrent ear infections and eczema; the cycle of clinging behaviour and scratching and whining and …..
Someone mentioned homeopathy and Penny was ready to try it. Over time, she saw big changes with her children’s health and the happiness of the whole family improved. She was so impressed that she began to study homeopathy herself. As a student she had a job as a receptionist in a homeopathy clinic and often talked about the need for more research. She wanted to be able to back up her personal experience with research data (after all she had a Bachelor of Science herself). After she gained her Homeopathy qualifications, she was still talking about the need for facts and figures: “There is no pathway in Australia for Homeopathy researchers.”
There is no holding back a mother on a mission! In 2004 Penny began formal meetings about the need for research and by 2005 The Aurum Project had begun.
What We Believe In
The mission of the Aurum Project is to advance the understanding and practice of homeopathy in Australia.
The Aurum Project aims to promote research into homeopathy.
Our vision is to provide contemporary evidence to promote the use of homeopathic treatment in Australia so that parents may confidently consider homeopathy as one of their healthcare options.
