It’s dreary in the east. A low came through last night, and with it clouds and rain. It will clear later today, then get unseasonably cold. It is Thanksgiving eve.
Traffic has already begun to build at the grocery store. People are lined up at the Farmers Market - it never ceases to amaze me how folks shop at the last minute - Thanksgiving is not a surprise. But it can be surprising.
How can we surprise ourselves this Thanksgiving? First, don’t coat your turkey in “butter and crushed spicy Dorito chips”. I didn't make that up, there is an online recipe for this. How about some better ideas? Take a meal to someone who can’t leave home. Take the time to sit and talk with them. Learn their story. Call a relative or friend you haven’t heard from in a while. See how they are. How about this, actually listen to your spouse - or kids. Make a simple meal using your mom (or dad’s) or grandmom’s recipes. Talk about the recipes and their authors with your kids. Tell them the family stories.
There are bunches of surveys out this week saying that people are tired of incivility - whether political or at the dinner table. The commentary is dire. I think something else. The pendulum is swinging. We are finally focused on politeness and civility may return. This is our shot.
As you have heard time and again from me, I love Thanksgiving because it gives us time to reflect, to be grateful, to thank others. I thank you for your work: work in a higher purpose, work in the care of others and doing it better every day. I thank you for your skill, and your toil and your equanimity. Our culture is not perfect- but at least we try.
And finally, I thank you. Thanks for all you do for our Hyland’s families and our Hyland’s family.

The application period for running with us in Boston has ended. We appreciate your interest.
As an old company (over 100 years), we take our history seriously, and we honor those who dedicated their lives to homeopathy. We often take part in ceremonies and dedications to remember those who came before us. One such ceremony was the dedication of a historical landmark honoring the “Father of American Homeopathy,” Dr. Constantine Hering, who lived and worked in Philadephia from 1800 to 1880.
Dr. Hering was the cofounder of the first medical society and first homeopathic medical school in the United States, discovering major medicines and authoring definitive texts on homeopathy during his career. He advanced the art of healing through research and education.
The landmark is placed in front of Dr. Hering’s former office in the center of Philadelphia on the north side of Arch Street between 12th and 13th Street. The landmark project itself was initiated and directed by the National Center for Homeopathy.

This story was shared by Hyland's own Dan Krombach after a run in with a migraine at a wedding. Hyland's to the rescue!
"On the first Sunday in July, my family attended a wedding in West Hills, California (in the San Fernando Valley) for the son of one of our long-time friends. The wedding ceremony was beautiful and the energy at the reception was at a very high level with thumping music and lots of dancing. About 20 minutes after the couple made their gala entrance, the groom came over to me and asked, “You don’t happen to have any Hyland’s Migraine Tablets on you, do you?” I smiled, thinking he was joking, but a closer look at his face revealed that he was in real pain. He told me that he’s been using the product for years, because “it’s the only thing that works.” Unfortunately, both he and his parents had forgotten to bring a bottle to the wedding hall.
I told him to go sit down next to his new wife and give me five minutes. I pulled out my phone, and immediately realized I had no cell signal in the hall. Out to the parking lot I went and pulled up the store locator on the Hyland’s website. The site gave me three stores that normally stock Hyland’s Migraine Headache Relief within five miles, so I started calling them one by one. It was already after 9:30pm, and the first store was closed. The second store (Sprouts) was open, and they transferred me to the right department to ask if they had any on the shelf. YES, they had two bottles left, but they were closing in twenty minutes. I said, “I’ll be there in ten!”
I updated the father of the groom and grabbed my car keys. A frantic drive through the streets of West Hills, grabbing a box off the shelf, a quick swipe at the register, and the drive back took about 15 minutes. I found the groom back on the dance floor just sort of swaying, looking quite pale, but putting on his best effort. I opened the bottle for him, and he downed a dose. After a few minutes chatting with his parents, I looked over on the dance floor, and he was rocking with the crowd, laughing, having a blast.
I remember thinking how rewarding it was to not only find out that close friends were using a Hyland’s product, but also to see how something we make right here at Standard Homeopathic can literally rescue someone in pain. I got a really big hug from the groom at the end of the reception and a very appreciative “Thank you!” from the bride! What a night!"
In 2015, the Hyland’s Foundation started the Neiswander Library to provide a central location for homeopathic texts and papers. The Foundation, a non-profit organization started by Hyland’s with a mission to improve the health and health care of all Americans, hopes the Library can be a central resource to help educate people on the history and philosophy of homeopathy.
The Library is named after Allen Neiswander, M.D., a well-respected homeopath based out of California. He left his personal collection of homeopathic literature in our care, and it is with great pride that we honor his legacy with this space. In addition, over the years Hyland’s collected a wide range of artifacts and texts from around the world, some dating back to Samuel Hahnemann, to share with the library visitors.
It is our goal that the library be the most comprehensively cataloged library of books on homeopathy in the world! Scholars will be able to search our collection online to find rare and obscure, as well as modern, books on various subjects of interest. Visiting researchers can use our library to study or to marvel at the artifacts that belonged to important figures throughout the history of homeopathy.
If you are ever in the neighborhood of King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, we invite you to stop in and browse the wonderful collection of books, and see fascinating objects, including old tincture bottles (some with remedies still in them), leather kits, medicine bags, and portraits of famous homeopaths.
