WHO recognition for Homeopathy

       THIRUVANANTHAPURAM,DEC 25: Deviating from the trend of rejecting homeopathy treatment and medicine as mere placebos, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared that homeopathy is the second-most used medical system internationally. “Clinical trials have proved that this method of treatment has been successful if the practitioners have taken into account the individual holistic nature of the patient before opting for homeopathy,” says Dr T N Sreedhara Kurup, Assistant Director In-Charge of the Central Research Institute for Homeopathy. Different patients will receive different treatments for the same disease making it difficult to conduct randomised control trials, he said.

        “Homeopathy is that stream of medicine, which prescribes medicines suitable to the individual and the cost of treatment is affordable when compared to Allopathy. Besides, it is claimed that homeopathic medicines are devoid of any harmful side-effects,” says Dr Ravi M Nair, former advisor, Government of India
About 50 crore people rely on homeopathy treatment in the world. As a system of medicine, it draws support from over lakhs of doctors, teaching institutions and universities where homeopathy is taught.

       Research centres and manufacturing units with focus on developing newer drugs for treatment of diseases provide ample proof that homeopathic medicines are not mere placebos, Nair said. Modern medicine and research too have arrived at a premise that many diseases have their origin in genes. It was 200 years ago that Samuel Hahnemann started working on this concept to evolve a mode of treatment based on the individual requirements called homeopathy, he said.

Dr. R.R. Sharma challenges the basis of relativity theory


 
        CHANDIGARH, DEC 10: “The art of homeopathy is valid, but its science is nebulous. Some new concepts, phenomena and sciences are needed to elucidate the science of homeopathy,” says the wizard of homeopathy,

Dr Rati Ram Sharma, who was nominated for the Nobel prize in medicine in 1996 and was honoured with the 1989 Albert Schweitzer prize, the Nobel of complementary medicines award, for his contribution to elucidating the science of homeopathy. The unassuming scholar, has an amazing body of intellectual discoveries to his credit, that range from solving the mystery behind working of Alpha and Theta waves in the brain, to challenging the basis of the theory of relativity and the Quantum Theory.
Dr. Ram has put his profound scientific understanding of the homeopathic system of medicine to practice, for the benefit of suffering humanity.He asserts that the science of homeopathy has not come to fore because its practitioners have never attempted to articulate its scientific basis.
