Homoeopathy to be promoted in India

The Centre will launch a national campaign to promote homoeopathy for mother and child care. The proposed campaign aims at sensitising policy makers and modern medicine health professionals about the strengths of homoeopathy.

There are a large number of homoeopathic medical colleges and institutionally qualified physicians in the country whose services are underutilised in the various national health programmes, according to the Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) under the Union Health and Family Welfare Ministry, and the Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy.

Since there is a limited awareness about homeopathy’s potential in improving the health status of women and children, the national campaign is expected to provide the necessary co-ordination for the utilisation of homoeopathic practitioners and institutions for the provision of health services in this sector.


The National Health Policy envisages the use of the AYUSH system of medicine in providing adequate health care under the umbrella of the national health framework.

The AYUSH systems have inherent advantages such as natural-plant based products, low cost, and absence of drug toxicity.

Homoeopathic medicines can be safely administered for various ailments throughout pregnancy without any adverse reaction, can be used during childbirth to contain problems associated with labour, and are effective for post-delivery and lactational complaints and the pills are sweet and thus, child-friendly.
