Public acceptance of homeopathy is high and it could become the first choice for medical training students, AYUSH Minister Sarbananda Sonowal said on Saturday.

Mr. Sonowal opened a two-day scientific convention on ‘Homeopathy: People’s Choice for Wellbeing’ here on World Homeopathy Day (WHD).

World Homeopathy Day is celebrated to commemorate the birthday of the founder of homeopathy, Dr. Christian Fredrich Samuel Hahnemann.

The convention is organized by three apex bodies under the Ministry of AYUSH – Central Council for Homeopathy Research, National Commission for Homeopathy and National Institute of Homeopathy.

Minister of State for AYUSH Mahendrabhai Munjpara was also present at the event.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Sonowal emphasized that transformative change is underway in the education, practice and drug development sectors of AYUSH.

He said the National Commission for Indian Systems of Medicine and the National Commission for Homeopathy have aligned AYUSH education with the new education policy and are attracting new talent as not only is AYUSH the first choice of treatment, but could also become the first choice for students seeking medical education.

The minister said homeopathic medicines are easily administered and acceptable to a large number of people.

He further said that public acceptance of homeopathy is high and people have been receiving treatment from family doctors for generations, according to an official statement.

Mr. Munjpara pointed out that homeopathy is very effective in treating various diseases and improving individual health in safer ways at lower cost.

Convention delegates included homeopathic researchers, scientists from interdisciplinary streams, practitioners, students, industrialists as well as representatives of various homeopathic associations.
