Homoeo Remedies
History of Homoeopathy
European Missionaries, 200 years back, brought homoeopathy to India. But the official recognition was achieved in 1839 when Dr. John martin Honing Berger during his visit to India, treated Maharaja Renjith Singh of Lahore. There after Homoeopathy showed a steady growth in India and gained the goodwill from India's Great leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Ravindra Nath Tagore, Swami Vivekandha, Mother Teresa, Dr. K. R. Narayanan etc.

In 1973 the Indian Parliament passed Homeopathic central council bill and accordingly Homeopathic Central Council was established in 1974. This council is the controlling authority of the educational and practice of Homoeopathy in India. There is also Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy for conducting and monitoring the research activities in Homoeopathy. To provide equal status with other systems, Govt. of India had constituted separate department - Indian Systems of Medicine and Homoeopathy under the Ministry of Health and Family welfare.

The Govt of India had constituted a Homeopathic pharmacopoeia committee and published eight volumes of official 'Homoeopathic pharmacopoeia of India'. Also a national level drug-testing laboratory is functioning at Ghaziabad, New Delhi.

The Maharaja of Travancore recognized homoeopathy as an acceptable system of treatment by 1928. A separate Dept. for Homoeopathy was established in Kerala in 1973 and at present there are 525 Govt. Homoeo dispensaries and 31 Homoeo Hospitals with the bed strength of 950.

Academic courses include 5 ½ years B.H.M.S (graduate level) course and 3 years M.D. (post graduate level) course. There is about 2,00,000 registered Homeopathic Practitioners in India of which 1,00,000 are institutionally qualified.

There are several Homeopathic medicine-manufacturing units in India in private sector. But HOMCO is the only institution in the field of Homeopathic Medicine Manufacturing factory in public sector.
