Luc Chaltin, N.D., D.I. Hom., Torchebearer for Clinical Homeopathy and Organic Agriculture Passes Away at 85

My mentor and teacher in the organic and homeopathic realm passed from this earth recently. I remain grateful to Luc Chaltin for all that he taught me about the nature of healing and the healing of nature. He added much to the body of knowledge, particularly in the field of Clinical Homeopathy, for which he served as an innovative torchbearer, especially after emigrating to the United States in the 1980’s. Following is his obituary:

Dr. Luc Chaltin, age 85, of Decatur passed away on December 28, 2008. Dr. Chaltin was born May 7, 1923 to Henri and Maria Chaltin in Kontich, Belgium. Survivors include: nine children who reside in Europe; his family at Newton Laboratories; and thousands of friends and patients. He was preceded in death by a son. He was previously a long-time resident of Rockdale County where he established Newton Laboratories, a leading manufacturer of clinical homeopathic remedies, and the American Academy of Clinical Homeopathy, an educational affiliate.

Fondly known as “Dr. Luc”, he was fluent in Dutch, French, German and English. He received degrees from the University of Antwerp, Belgium, Clayton School of Natural Healing, British Institute of Homeopathy in England, “Provinciale Land-en Tuinbouwschool” Mechelen, Belgium and studied at the School of Business in Leuven, Belgium.

Dr. Luc served on the Board of Directors for C.A.M.A., a non profit organization that promoted alternative and natural healthcare. He was a world renowned homeopath and healed and treated countless patients throughout the United States, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean.

Dr. Luc wrote the first Advanced Clinical Homeopathy Correspondence Course, authored the first homeopathic book in Dutch, hosted an Organic Gardening radio program in Belgium and co-hosted the syndicated “Jump Start Your Health” radio program with Robert Scott Bell here in the United States.

He frequently lectured to the public, medical doctors, homeopaths, naturopaths and pharmacists. Dr. Luc was literally a walking testimony for good health, exercising and a curious mind. He was an avid reader, an organic gardener and enjoyed daily hikes. Resilient until the end, he passed away of complications from a fall while hiking.

The community of Natural Health has lost a very important figure and he will be greatly missed. His legacy of Homepathic formulations and teachings will continue to affect generations to come.

The family will receive friends Friday, January 2, 2009 from 5 pm – 8 pm at Metro Emb. and Crematory, Inc. located at 329 Gees Mill Business Parkway Suite #300 Conyers, GA 30013 (770) 922-8182. Dr. Luc chose to be cremated and a celebration of his life will be arranged in the near future.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to: Georgia Organics, Inc, P.O. Box 8924, Atlanta, GA 31106. (678)702-0400

May he rest in peace.
