India Post Reports Over 400,000 Registered Homeopaths With An Additional 13,000 New Homeopaths Per Year

The India Post reports that both Ayurvedic and Homeopathic Medicine have gained tremendous growth in India. They also say that the World Health Organization states that  over one billion people world wide use herbal medicines and alternatives.  Many of those are  in India which has a population of about 1.17 billion people.

There are over 400,000 registered homeopaths in the country currently, with approximately 13,000 more being added every year.

Amrit Kalsi, Senior Medical Officer, Delhi Government, says, “The demand for Homeopathic and Ayurvedic medicines has increased in the last few years and to cure chronic ailments such as respiratory diseases, fevers, skin diseases, viral infections, asthma and allergic disorders, people are choosing the traditional way of treatment before allopathic.”

There were 28 homoeopathic dispensaries in Delhi in 1978 and the number now has gone up to 78. The number of patients taking homeopathic medicines has increased from around 800,000 patients in 1997 to 13,620,174 patients in 2006, she adds.

India is considered one of the largest emerging markets yet the pharmaceutical industry markets have only grown 13-15 per cent against a 25-30 per cent growth for homeopathy. The fact that homeopathy is such a beloved health treatment modality attests to its history of safety and effectiveness around the world but especially in India. Pharmaceutical company sponsored organizations attacking homeopathy  have no ground to stand on in India and thus they have instituted attacks in countries such as England with the hope that it will have an impact on emerging markets in India and Africa.

New Scientific Experiment Proves Homeopathic Dilutions Have Effect

Scientists replicating earlier experiments but using modern scientific methodologies has confirmed that homeopathic potentized dilutions are active. The study was published recently and is entitled: Inhibition of CD203c membrane up-regulation in human basophils by high dilutions of histamine: a controlled replication study.
Results
Membrane up-regulation of CD203c, which in these experimental conditions proved to be a more consistent activation marker than CD63, was significantly inhibited in samples treated with histamine at the dilutions of 2C (P = 0.001), 12C (P = 0.047), 14C (P = 0.003), 15C (P = 0.036) and 16C (P = 0.009). Control water dilutions/succussions did not show any significant effect.
Conclusion
Using a strictly standardized flow cytometry protocol and a new dilution/succussion procedure, we have shown that low and high dilutions of histamine inhibit CD203c up-regulation in anti-IgE stimulated basophils.

The online paper also describes the history of this type of experiment starting with a scientist named Benveniste and how modern methods have now shown indisputably that  homeopathic high dilutions that are potentized have effect and that this experiment can be replicated successfully.
