Homeopathic doctors double in two decades in India

With thanks to the Times of India Kounteya Sinha, TNN | Sep 1, 2012, 03.46AM IST:

NEW DELHI: Western countries may find homeopathy “unscientific” and for which dozens of systematic reviews have “failed to produce convincing evidence of effectiveness”. But India continues to see a massive jump in the demand for the 250-year-old system of medicine. India’s registered homeopathic practitioners have more than doubled in two decades — increased from 1.05 lakh in 1980 to 2.46 lakh in 2010. Also, the number of homeopathic hospitals/dispensaries has also increased four fold — from 1,686 in 1980 to about 7,000 in 2010.

NB: A lakh is a unit in the South Asian numbering system equal to one hundred thousand. A crore is a unit in the South Asian numbering system equal to ten million, or 100 lakhs.

Delhi zoo uses alternative medicine to treat animals

With thanks to The Times of India Shreya Roy Chowdhury, TNN Jun 5, 2012, 05.37PM IST

NEW DELHI: It’s not part of the regular treatment but in a pinch, alternative medicine in the form of homeopathy, ayurveda or herbal concoctions, does the trick. And the doctors responsible for animals at the National Zoological Park, Delhi, find, that they sometimes work when allopathy doesn’t. 

“We started using them seven-eight years ago,” says Delhi zoo veterinary officer Paneer Selvam. “We get them wheneve necessity arises.” The zoo’s standard line of treatment is allopathy but whenever a particularly difficult case comes up, Selvam consults practitioners of alternative medicine.

‘About two years ago, one of the Asiatic lions had hind-quarter paralysis. Another one developed the condition some time back. In both cases we first tried with allopathic treatment but when that didn’t work we used homeopathic treatment,” says Selvam, “In my experience, we have got good results.”

A Himalayan black bear that was afflicted with the same condition a year ago and was cured by homeopathy. “Many of the zoo vets prefer to try alternative medicine now,” says Selvam.

One of the first time he tried it was some years ago with an old white tiger with a stone in the urinary bladder. Surgery was too much of a risk for the aged tiger and homeopathy was used instead. But the black herbal concoction, a potent medicine for wounds, Selvam’s been using for a decade. “It is a very good ointment for maggot wounds,” he says.

The zoo doesn’t stock homeopathy or ayurvedic medicines. The vet says that homeopathic courses typically last for about three months and they stock enough for one. The decision to attempt the other lines for treatment isn’t Selvam’s own. Health issues pertaining to animals at the zoo are attended to by a health committee that consists of a team of doctors and meets once in three months.

Amma Resonance Healing Foundation

The ARHF promotes the development of healing through resonance. Healing by resonance is based on the universal law that information similar to the nature of a disease and its totality of symptoms can induce a self-healing response in the diseased individual.

Healing by resonance is considered to become increasingly important as it acknowledges and strengthens the potential for self-healing in the individual, and is based on understanding the role diseases play in the collective as well as the individual; the awareness that fighting disease, besides creating undesired side-effects, in the long run creates more serious diseases by suppressing the role and purpose of the disease, which is neither understood nor addressed.
