Jaipur to celebrate birth anniversary of father of homeopathy today
The 260th birth anniversary of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) - the father of homeopathy - is going to be celebrated jointly by various local associations and societies related to homeopathy at Chamber Bhawan in Jaipur in evening today.

Besides a key note address, the occasion will be marked by honouring of homoeopaths who have made noteworthy contribution in this area of medicine.

"Homeopathy, which is steadily becoming more popular in Jaipur, was propounded by a German allopathic practitioner Dr. Samuel Hahnemann who was looking for better options for treatment of his patients due the side effects of allopathic. With the official recognition to this strand of medical treatment in India along with Ayurvedic treatment, many homeopaths have opened clinics in residential area of Jaipur and doing reasonably well," said Dr. Chhavi Sharma who is working as homeopath with free dispensary run by charitable Jain trust in Malviya Nagar locality of Jaipur.

According to Dr. Chhavi Sharma, there are around 5000 homeopaths working in Jaipur both in the government and private sector. Unfortunately, in government hospitals there is reluctance of starting homeopathic units. Consequently, only hundred odd homeopaths have employed in the government sector while around a thousand sanctioned posts exist, she added.

"Public is accepting homeopathy but government is neglecting it," she concluded.

Another homeopath, Dr. Rashmi Sarasvat, who runs a homeopathic clinic and research centre in the city said biggest selling points of homeopathy is the lack of side effects and it works naturally with your body.

However, the allopathic doctors keep on prorogating that homeopathy is a junk science that works on placebo effect and is not effective treatment for any medical condition, she complained while blaming the slow acceptance of homeopathy in government hospitals.

"Human brain is a powerful organ, and the placebo effect is powerful process for a few and a chance factor. If there is any non-scientific medicinal value in homeopathy, it is placebo effect. Some fools spend money spent on sweet little pills to fool their minds into curing themselves. Homeopaths make money through a non-science, rather nonsense. While allopathic medicine is real science and real medicine to cure what ails a patient," said an allopathic doctor without being named.
