Acute joint pains that characterise chikungunya and headache associated with Japanese Encephalitis (JE) can be treated using homeopathy, claim homeopathy experts.
“Homeopathy treats the symptom from its root. The drugs that we use are scientifically tested and have no side-effects,” said Dr RS Pareek, a practicing homeopathy doctor, one of the many experts who will meet in Delhi next month to discuss the effectiveness and safety of homoeopathy medicines.
Out of five lakh homoeopaths practicing in India, 5,000 work in Delhi. There are 186 homeopathic colleges across the country, of which 36 provide post-graduation in the field. More than 10,000 students graduate each year from these colleges.
The four-day 66th World Congress in Homeopathy to be held between December 1 and 4 is an attempt to bring specialists from across the globe on a single platform to share their expertise.
