Homoeopathy has become more sure, conclusive, explainable and easier with the passage of time, said Dr Praful Vijayakar, a renowned homoeopathy practitioner from Mumbai, who was in the city to inaugurate a homeopathic clinic at Dayanand Medical College and Hospital here today.

Talking to mediapersons, Dr Vijayakar said DMCH was the first college in the country to start a homoeopathy clinic. He clarified, “I agree when people say that homoeopathy takes a long time to cure an ailment, but the fault lies with the doctor in that case and not with the medicine. The doctors who take time to cure patients are perhaps not practicing on the right lines”.

The expert said the main difference between the homoeopathy and allopathy was that the latter cured the disease in man whereas the former treated man in disease. “We homoeopathic practitioners believe that the disease lies basically in the metabolism of a man, so there is a need to understand a patient thoroughly. The doctors and students specialising in this field should understand the genetic nature of the patient”, stressed Dr Vijayakar.

Mr Prem Nath Gupta, secretary, Managing Society, DMCH, said very soon the institute would start ayurvedic clinics in the hospital and that he was also contemplating to introduce MBBS courses in these systems of medicines.

Dr Ramakanth Jagpal, a physician and his team comprising of qualified doctors, will provide services in the OPD of homoeopathy clinic. Dr Jagpal said, “the fully computerised OPD will give treatment based on best homoeopathic software available worldwide, developed by the new generation homoeopathic experts”.
