Luc Chaltin, Founder

In 1965, Belgian-born Luc Chaltin was gravely ill with tuberculosis. He could not tolerate the treatment attempted by traditional medical doctors, and a well-respected classical homeopath told him that homeopathy could not cure tuberculosis. This life-threatening experience led him on his journey.As fate would have it, his search led him to a book that explained the importance of liver drainage, more commonly known as detoxification. He knew he had found his answer.


Dr. Luc began using homeopathic remedies known to cleanse or “drain” the liver of toxins. As he continued his quest for health, he began to experiment by combining homeopathic liver “drainers” with homeopathic remedies known to support excretory function. He soon developed a combination formula and labeled it “Drainer.” His condition quickly improved. Within six months, there was no evidence of tuberculosis.
In 1987, Dr. Luc founded Newton Laboratories, Inc. and began to market an over-the-counter version of his “Drainer” as NEWTON’s Detoxifier. He introduced Detoxifier, along with other unique formulations, to health food stores, holistic practitioners and retail customers. His formulations focus on the liver and kidneys while addressing symptoms of acute and chronic illness. The theory of detoxification for overcoming toxic, chronic afflictions remains at the forefront of holistic healing methods today. All NEWTON complexes continue to be developed using his unique methods.

To aid in the promotion of homeopathy and the education of others, Dr. Luc established the American Academy of Clinical Homeopathy (AACH). Hundreds of health food store personnel and lay people have completed the AACH Certification in Basic Homeopathic Principles, and have gone on to promote healing through clinical homeopathic methods. Today, the AACH has a staff of educators, support personnel and graduates who are embracing and continuing Dr. Luc’s vision for educating the masses in this valuable healing method.
