Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu asked to take Homoeopathy to masses in the interior, remote places, where it is practically difficult to dispense medicines, owing to lack of logistics, or due to limited resources. His remarks came in his address on the occasion of World Homeopathy Day, in New Delhi.
He paid homage at the bust of Dr. Hahnemann who created the system of alternative medicine called Homeopathy.
“Swatch Bharat Leads to Swasth Bharat and Samruddhi Bharat,” the Vice President said at the event where Minister of State for AYUSH (Independent Charge), Shripad Yesso Naik and other dignitaries were also present.
He further said that Homoeopathy is one of the greatest discoveries of the 18th century and the mankind cannot thank this great man enough for gifting it to us.
“Since Homoeopathy is cost-effective, easy to administer and has no side-effects, it provides an apt solution for many challenges we are facing in health due to paucity of resources today,” he added.
The Vice President also said that scientific validation is a must, a checkpoint for everything adding that we need scientists and health researchers to give their thumbs up on the effectiveness of homeopathy.
“The scientists from Physics, Chemistry, Biogenetics and Pharmacology have taken the onus of bringing out many little or yet unknown facts of Homoeopathy to the fore for everyone to see. Science is science, and it is nobody’s friend and nobody’s enemy and it only demands evidence,” he added.
Vice President Naidu further asked Homoeopathy students, aspiring doctors to further spread reach of Homoeopathy by their work. It is a relatively novel science and it is used by over 80 countries in the world, he added.
