Homeopaths can’t practice allopathy-Supreme Court of India

A person who does not have knowledge of a particular System of Medicine but practices in that System is a Quack and a mere pretender to medical knowledge or skill, or to put it differently, a Charlatan.

Homoeopaths has permissionto practice in HOMOEOPATHY ONLY, he was under a statutory duty not to enter the field of any other System of Medicine as,admittedly, he was not qualified in the other system,

Allopathy, to be precise. He trespassed into a prohibited field and was liable to be prosecuted under Section 15(3) of the Indian Medical Council Act, 1956. His conduct amounted to an actionable negligence particularly as the duty of care indicated by this Court

Merely because the Anatomy and Physiology are similar, it does not mean that a person having studied one System of Medicine can claim to treat the patient by drugs of another System which he might not have studied at any stage. No doubt, study of Physiology and Anatomy is common in all Systems of Medicines and the students belonging to different Systems of Medicines may be taught physiology and Anatomy together, but so far as the study of drugs is concerned; the pharmacology of all systems is entirely different.

  1. The problem is with homoeopaths of the present day. As a homoeo medical practitioner I have cured thousands of dengue cases with one single dose of the homoeo remedy BRYONIA-200. Even those in hospitals for a few days, take one pill of Bryonia-200 and within an hour they become so all right that they themselves ask for discharge and return home. So also swine flu is magically cured with one single dose of another homoeo remedy MERC-SOL-10,000. Alas! The Central Council of homoeopathy issues a circular that homoeopaths should not treat swine flu. How is it poissible for me to select merc-col for swine flu. It is because I use the reference book HOMOEOPATHIC THERAPEUTICS by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal. And most doctors do not have a copy of this valuable book and also in homoeo colleges this book is not taught. Also we do not find a mention of this book in any journal or seminar or workshop. God alone can save homoeopathy. For all medical emergencies during child-birth I use the referenfe work THE ACCOUCHEUR’S EMERGENCY MANUAL by Dr. W. A. Yingling. What is wrong with homoeo colleges. They do not keep copies of this valuable book in their librariy God alone can save homoeopathy.

  2. Homoeopathy has not become popular because of defective books as well as because of defective use of books. This has been said by Dr.James Tyler Kent in his LESSER WRITINGS. The most valuable reference works HOMOEPATHIC THERAPEUTICS by Dr. Samuel Lilienthal, THE ACCOUCHEUR’S EMERGENCY MANUAL by Dr. W. A. Yingling, Calvin B. Knerr’s REPERTORY. Most homoeopathis doctors do not have a copy of these valuable reference works. Many Lecturers/Professors in HOMOEPATHIC COLLEGES do not even heard the names of these books. They do not know how to use these valuable books. Without these books no one can practice genuine homoeopathy. Those interested may ask for a free copy of my book on homoeopathy.
