Addressing the gathering, the President said that the generational association of Prasanta Banerji’s family with Homeopathy dates back to the mid-nineteenth century.
Banerji’s grandfather, Ishan Chandra, was Pandit Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar’s brother. Vidyasagar was once treated for migraine with homoeopathy.
Use of latest knowledge could pave the way for cutting edge research in this field. It could lead to the affirmation of homoeopathic medicines in fundamental and clinical conditions.
It is heartening to note that the Prasanta Banerji Homoeopathic Research Foundation is involved in active research. It accrues data about various life threatening diseases from the treatment it administers using The Banerji Protocols.
The President said that seized of the need to promote these alternative healing systems, the Department of Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy was created by the Government of India. It was later re-named Department of AYUSH and became a full-fledged Ministry last year.
