International Convention on World Homoeopathy Day

International Convention on World Homoeopathy Day

A two day convention was organised on 9-10th April 2019 by the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH), an autonomous research organisation, Ministry of AYUSH on the occasion of the World Homoeopathy Day at Dr. Ambedkar International Centre in New Delhi.

World Homeopathy Day is observed on 10 April every year.

Background:

The World Homoeopathy Day is observed to commemorate the birth anniversary of the founder of Homoeopathy, Dr. Christian Fredrich Samuel Hahnemann.

India's annual market size for Homeopathy is 516.9 million U.S. dollars with 100 million patients following it out of 500 million patients worldwide with a global market size of 3.73 billion U.S. dollars, according to industry experts.

What is Homeopathy?

  • Homeopathy is based on the concept that diluting a version of a substance that causes illness has healing properties.
  • So pollen or grass could be used to create a homeopathic hay-fever remedy.
  • One part of the substance is mixed with 99 parts of water or alcohol, and this is repeated six times in a "6c" formulation or 30 times in a "30c" formulation.
  • However, it is currently a debate in United Kingdom to put homeopathy into Blacklist as their tiny tablets are made of mostly sugar syrups.
