Laurel Chiten has been an independent filmmaker for over twenty years.

Laurel Chiten's most recent film is Twisted, a documentary about people with the neurological disorder, dystonia was broadcast on PBS's series Independent Lens January 30th 2007. Twisted was honored with Outstanding Achievement in a Documentary film from the Mass Access Awards.

As a filmmaker Laurel  believes in the importance of telling a true story, even if it challenges conventional medicine notions of what is and isn't possible. Homeopathy was invented over 200 years ago, and it is still being practiced all over the world. Isn't that something worth looking at?

The story of the film is about   a boy with a devastating modern day illness? Can  Homeopathy find its way towards the cure of his illness , Can it be the answer for depression? Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Asthma? From Within, Without focuses on this mysterious and controversial treatment that many people have decided to trust.

The film unfolds like a mystery as we follow patients from around the country going through homeopathic treatment for physical, mental and emotional conditions. From Within, Without brings alive the rich history of homeopathy, the science and the philosophy. Ultimately, the film illuminates the connection between emotions and illness, mind and body.

The Characters:

The story of a mother desperately trying to save her son and a doctor passionately trying to save humanity. The journey of a boy with autism.

Nancy Korn had one dream in life–to become a mother. She and her husband Evan wanted a big family. After six years of trying, they finally got pregnant and gave birth to a healthy little boy, Lucas. His development was normal. But when he approached his first birthday, Lucas began to act strangely. By age two, Lucas was diagnosed with autism. Nancy and Evan were devastated.

They set out on a mission to bring their son back. Finding few answers in conventional medicine, they turned to alternative therapies. Some helped. Nothing cured. Lucas was still autistic. He still could not talk. One day, Nancy read about a doctor in Los Angeles who was using a centuries-old medical system, homeopathy, to treat autism. The physician, Dr. Luc De Schepper– affectionately known as ‘Dr. Luc’ -- is a medical doctor, licensed acupuncturist and homeopath, an author of 15 books, and a respected teacher and lecturer worldwide. Despite his impressive credentials, the method—and the doctor—were controversial. But Nancy had a feeling. A week later she and her mother-in-law found themselves flying across the country to meet with Dr. Luc. After starting homeopathic treatment, Lucas begins to improve. The film follows their story over the next year to see if Lucas becomes free of his autism.
