25 new homoeo dispensaries in Kerala soon

The Kerala State will have 25 new homoeopathic dispensaries shortly, Finance Minister T.M. Thomas Isaac said here on Sunday.

Delivering the presidential address at the foundation stone-laying ceremony of a new factory being constructed as part of the Rs.19.67-crore second-phase of the restructuring of the State Homoeopathic Cooperative Pharmacy (Homco), Dr. Isaac said talks were on with Housing Board officials for land for a homeopathic pharmacy college that would function under the aegis of Homco.

The pharmacy college and the research intended to be taken up there would enable Homco to produce drugs valued at Rs.20 crore annually, thus making it the biggest homoeopathic drug production public sector unit in the country, the Minister said, adding that 2,550 new personnel would be recruited shortly to public sector units in the State.

The new factory of Homco would be completed in 18 months and would offer direct employment to 120 persons, he added.

Health Minister P.K. Sreemathy laid the foundation stone for the factory.

Homoeopathy State director and Homco chairperson K. Jamuna, district panchayat president Prathiba Hari were among those who spoke.

IIT scientists proved that homeopathic medicines work on the principle of nanotechnology.

Mumbai: Six months after the British Medical Association rubbished homeopathy as witchcraft with no scientific basis, IIT scientists have said the sweet white pills work on the principle of nanotechnology. 

Homeopathic pills containing naturally occurring metals such as gold, copper and iron retain their potency even when diluted to a nanometre or one-billionth of a metre, states the IIT-Bombay research published in the latest issue of ‘Homeopathy’, a peer-reviewed journal from reputed medical publishing firm Elsevier. 

IIT-B’s chemical engineering department bought homeopathic pills from neighbourhood shops, prepared highly diluted solutions and checked these under powerful electron microscopes to find nanoparticles of the original metal. 

‘‘Certain highly diluted homeopathic remedies made from metals still contain measurable amounts of the starting material, even at extreme dilutions of 1 part in 10 raised to 400 parts (200C),’’ said Dr Jayesh Bellare from the scientific team. ‘Homeo pills get potent on dilution’ 

His student, Prashant Chikramane, presented the homeopathy paper titled, ‘Extreme homeopathic dilutions retain starting materials: A nanoparticulate perspective’, as part of his doctoral thesis. 

‘‘Homeopathy has been a conundrum for modern medicine. Its practitioners maintained that homeopathic pills got more potent on dilution, but they could never explain the mechanism scientifically enough for the modern scientists,’’ said Bellare. 

Homoeopathy faces controversies because of its high dilutions beyond Avogadro’s number such as 30c and 200c (1060 and 10400 respectively). This study has demonstrated the presence of nanoparticles of the starting materials and their aggregates even at extremely high dilutions, using market samples of metal-derived medicines from two reputable manufacturers in India. Researchers have demonstrated for the first time by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), electron diffraction and chemical analysis by Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES), the presence of physical entities in these extreme dilutions. The confirmed presence of nanoparticles challenges current thinking about the role of dilutions in homoeopathic medicines. They have found that the concentrations reach a plateau at the 6c potency and beyond. Further they have shown that despite large differences in the degree of dilution from 6c to 200c, there were no major differences in the nature of the particles (shape and size) of the starting material and their absolute concentrations (in pg/ml).
