Objectives: The objective of present preliminary study was to assess the anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-arthritic effect of some homoeopathic mother tinctures viz. Ricinus communis (RCMT), Rauwolfia serpentina (RSMT), Bellis perennis (BPMT), Curcuma longa(CLMT), Terminalia arjuna (TAMT) and Tribulus terresteris (TTMT).
Materials and Methods: Paw oedema was induced by administration of 0.1ml 1% carrageenan in normal saline into right hind paw. Degree of inflammation was evaluated according to paw swelling. Arthritis was induced by Complete Freund’s Adjuvant (CFA) injection in metatarsal footpad of Wistar albino rats.
Result: Curcuma longa and Tribulus terresteris mother tinctures reduced hind paw swelling decreased the paw volume in Carrageenan treated rats. Thus, revealed potent activity against inflammation. All homoeopathic mother tinctures showed peripheral analgesic activities in hot plate induced thermal algesia in mice.

Anti-rheumatoid and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic Guaiacum officinale in an animal model.

Sarkar A1, Datta P1, Das AK1, Gomes A2.

Author information

Homeopathy is a popular form of complementary and alternative medicine. Guaiacum extract is said to be useful for pain and inflammation, but there appears to be no scientific evidence to support this.


The aim of the present study was to evaluate the anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity of homeopathic preparations of Guaiacum officinale (Gua) on experimental animal model.


Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) was induced in male albino rats by Freund’s complete adjuvant (FCA) at a dose of (0.25 mg heat killed Mycobacterium tuberculosis/ml of emulsion). Gua mother tincture (MT) (prepared from the latex part of the plant) (MT), Gua 30cc and 200cc were purchased commercially from King Company, Kolkata, India. Male albino Wistar rats (130 ± 10 g) were divided into 6 groups: Sham control; Arthritis control; Standard treatment indomethacin (0.25 mg 100 g(-1) p.o. × 5 alternative days), Gua MT (1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (30c 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated; Gua (200c; 1 ml kg(-1) p.o. × 5 days) treated. Anti-rheumatic activity was examined through physical, urinary, serum parameters. All the results were expressed in terms of mean ± SEM (statistical error of mean n = 6) at each dose level. The level of significance was determined through one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), p < 0.05 was considered significant.


It was observed that body weight, ankle and knee diameter, urinary parameters (hydroxyproline (OH-P), glucosamine, calcium (Ca(2)(+)), creatinine (CRE), phosphate (PO4(3)(-))), serum ACP (acid phosphatase)/ALP (alkaline phosphatase)/Ca(2+)/CRE/PO4(3-)/gamma-glutamyl transferase (GGT)/Lipid peroxidation (LPO)/Glutathione (GSH)/Superoxide dismutase (SOD)/Catalase, serum GGT, serum interleukins like IL-1β/CINC-1/PGE2/TNF-α/IL-6, IL-12/IL-4/IL-6 levels were significantly affected. After treatment with Guaiacum in all 3 regimes was associated with normalization of these parameters compared to control group.


These findings suggest that homeopathic G. officinale possesses anti-rheumatic and anti-oxidant activity in experimental animal and these activities may be more significant in higher potencies.

Research showing homeopathic medicines produce apoptosis in cancer cells

cancerNew study adds to the growing body of research showing homeopathic medicines produce apoptosis in cancer cells

In a new study published in The International Journal of Oncology the findings of a preclinical study clearly delineated the molecular mechanism underlying the apoptogenic effect of the non-toxic homeopathic remedy, sulphur, in non-small cell lung carcinoma cells.

Sulphur alters NF ?B-p300 cross-talk in favour of p53-p300 to induce apoptosis in non-small cell lung carcinoma

In the search for new medicines devoid of the toxic side effects associated with conventional chemotherapy, this study adds to the growing body of knowledge (1) (2) (3)  that outlines the potential of homeopathic medicines to have a role in the treatment of patients suffering various forms of carcinoma.

  1. Contribution of the ROS-p53 feedback loop in thuja-induced apoptosis of mammary epithelial carcinoma cells
  2. Cytotoxic effects of ultra-diluted remedies on breast cancer cells
  3. DNA fragmentation and cell cycle arrest: a hallmark of apoptosis induced by Ruta graveolens in human colon cancer cells

A German Train Named Samuel Hahnemann


The founder of homeopathy have been set many monuments, streets were named after him and stamps printed in his honor and now Hahnemann will be honored with the naming of a modern train

On August 27, 2015 has baptized a train the Elbe-Saale-Bahn in the name of Samuel Hahnemann- Father of Homoeopathy –  in Köthen (Anhalt) station. Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors paid tribute in their speeches the merits of Samuel Hahnemann.

Hahnemann laid the foundation that Köthen is today associated with homeopathy worldwide.

Thomas Webel , Minister of Transport of Saxony-Anhalt, Werner Sobetzko, President of the Municipal of Köthen, Henriette Hahn, German Railways, and Monika Kölsch, Chief Financial Officer of the German Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors (DZVhÄ) paid tribute in their speeches the merits of Samuel Hahnemann.

To appoint a train to Samuel Hahnemann, a wonderful idea.Hrdly a worthier namesake provides for a train that is traveling in the home of the founder of homeopathy.

The new double-deck coaches are air-conditioned and designed for a speed of up to 160 kilometers per hour. Its features include comfortable seats with plenty of leg room and tables, generous luggage racks and large panoramic windows. The vehicles are geared to the needs of mobility impaired traveler. They feature low entrances and spacious multi-purpose compartments with shelves for wheelchairs, bicycles or prams. Modern passenger information systems facilitate orientation.

This indeed is a great respect to true master of healing. Another reason for all homeopaths to celebrate. Looking forward to travel in the train during next visit to Germany.


From here his teaching went out into the whole world. Both took place in Germany and around the world teaching his ardent supporters, who the pugnacious scholar Hahnemann set many monuments. 1851 one in Leipzig, 1897, another in Köthen, 1900 probably the most monumental statue in Washington, in 1906 a street in Leipzig was named after him in 1955 and 1996 stamps were printed in his honor and now he is 2015, with the baptism of a modern train Elbe Saale Bahn honored to Samuel Hahnemann. That pleases us as the German Central Association of Homeopathic Doctors course especially.

A short differential comparison of the Magnesium remedies : Guest post by Uta Mittelstadt

Originally posted on Clever Homeopathy:

The Magnesiums are a remedy group that unfolds its principal action radius on the liver, the central nervous system, the gastro-intestinal system and the sexual organs. The individual salts differ in the focus strength of action on these systems. The central nervous system is the prime focus of Magnesium phosphoricum. Magnesium carbonicum also acts primarily on the central nervous system, but also on the thyroid, the gastro-intestinal tract and the musculoskeletal apparatus. This also applies to Magnesium muriaticum but there is no action on the thyroid, albeit so on the liver. Magnesium sulfuricum is quite similar to Magn. mur. in this respect, while Magnesium fluoratum is known to influence the lymphatic system the most.

The Magnesiums have in common that they are sensitive individuals that have a strong urge to make peace in the world around them. They cannot have quarrel or disharmony amongst people in their close environment, family…

Homeopathic approach to catastrophe and radiations problems; Fukushima, Japan by Torako Yui

Source of Original article

The Tohoku earthquake and the subsequent tsunami, which occurred off the Sanriku coast of Japan at 14:46 JST on Friday 11 March 2011, caused enormous devastation, mainly in eastern Japan, earning the name: the Great East Japan Earthquake. I am writing this article, in which I will briefly present the JPHMA’s activities, as well as my view on the meaning of this catastrophe, just one month after it happened.


According to the Japan Metropolitan Police Department’s statistics, on 30 April 2011, the figures are as follows:
Deathtoll 14,662; Missing 11,019; Injured 4,373 among 12 districts including Fukushima, Gunma, Igaraki, Tochigi, Miyagi, Yamagata, Niigata, Yamanashi, Nagano, Saitama, Tokyo and Chiba. 2.500 shelters have been built in 18 districts, caring for 127,000 evacuees. 48.564 buildings have completely collapsed, spread over 9 districts.

The shock of this catastrophe is as vivid today as if it had just happened yesterday.

On the day of the earthquake, I wanted to go straight to the affected area, but as I had already been booked for lectures in western Japan and as there was no access to the east nor electricity in the zone, I had to postpone my trip. Initially, I could only offer remote support via text messages to mobile phones. JPHMA members in the affected areas had home kits of 36 homeopathic remedies and contributed outstandingly by distributing homeopathic remedies to their neighbours; many of them are indicated for the kind of physical and mental trauma caused by such a disaster but none of them were appropriate for treating exposure to radiation. The fact that JPHMA had given homoeopathic self-care lectures to the general public on a routine basis became a great advantage.

Another unexpected situation occurred, however, at the Fukushima 1 Nuclear Power Plant. In 1971, General Electric Mark I nuclear reactors were introduced and have been working for nearly 40 years. The earthquake and tsunami disabled the reactor cooling systems, leading to nuclear radiation leaks due to a partial melt of fuel rods.

At the time of the earthquake, there were 54 active nuclear power plants in Japan, which would have totalled 77 if inactive and newly planned ones were included. The fact that such a large number of nuclear power plants should be built in Japan, a country of earthquakes, is equal to pouring gasoline on a fire!

Luckily there was not a complete meltdown, as in the Chernobyl nuclear accident on 26 April 1986. In Chernobyl, the reactor exploded and melted, sending huge amounts of radioactive fallout into the atmosphere. In Fukushima, the leakage is one tenth that of Chernobyl. 

Nevertheless, some international media have reported incorrectly that the whole reactor had exploded, releasing an atomic cloud, making Japan an extremely dangerous place to visit. The press used pictures of Hiroshima after the atomic bomb on 6 August 1945, next to pictures of land destroyed by the 11 March tsunami, implying incorrectly that the land was damaged by the nuclear power plant incident rather than by the tsunami. Products from Japan could not be exported and, even Japanese people started to avoid products from Fukushima. When I visited Fukushima, where vegetables and fruits are produced, people there were deeply depressed. A farmer in Fukushima had committed suicide because he could not sell his produce, which was about to be shipped out.

Let us consider the Arndt-Schulz law, one of the major principles of homoeopathy. According to this law, if we are exposed to a large amount of radiation, a small amount of the radiation could cure the ailments due to the exposure. If it is the exposure is minimal, our own healing power should be able to reverse the damage.

I have created a radiation remedy ‘RA’ to heal the effects of radioactive substances. It is a combination of Cadmium sulphuricum, Sol, Plutonium nitricum, Kalium iodatum, Radium bromide, Uranium nitricum, Caesium hydroxide, Thyreoidinum, and Parathyreoid gland. Caesium 137 was carried to neighbouring European countries after the explosion in Chernobyl, but people who were not exposed to great density of radioactive rain seemed not to be affected.

After all, huge amounts of radioactivity have been spread by more than 2,000 nuclear experiments all over the world. Therefore, we do not have to worry about radiation out of hand. On a daily basis, we should try to avoid any intake of harmful substances and use a treatment like homeopathy to stimulate our own healing powers and push toxins out of our bodies. Radioactivity is not the only dangerous pollutant we encounter: substances in vaccines, drugs, pesticides, and food additives are also harmful. I think this nuclear incident has demonstrated the necessity to replace harmful energy, medicine, and foods with healthy ones, derived from nature.

From the time of the earthquake to my visit to the affected area

Immediately after the earthquake, on 11 March, I contacted the Institute of Homoeopathy in Japan and started to distribute the remedies I had created: ‘RA’, as mentioned above, and ‘AAA’ (Aconite, Arnica, and Arsenicum), free of charge. I also offered information to the public through our website and by email.

On 18 March, a JPHMA rescue team, in conjunction with Homoeopathy Japan Co, set off for Fukushima and Miyagi with these remedies and relief supplies. As the motorway was closed, it took 12 hours to get there and 9 hours to come back, which is about three times longer than it would usually take.

I had already planned to give a lecture in Sendai city, in Miyagi, on 2 April before the disaster occurred, so I added visits to Fukushima on 1 April and Iwate on 3 April, where I provided RA and AAA remedies to about 400 of our members and to the general public. I gave free lectures to explain to people how to use homeopathic remedies in time of disasters.

To read the full details of the reports, please visit the JPHMA website:

These reports are the result of my own experience in the affected areas and are quite different from the reports that can be seen in newspapers and other media.


The effect of the RA remedies and AAA remedies

We are currently analyzing responses to questionnaires after using these remedies.

The below chart is the result so far, as of 30 April 2011.


1. I sent ‘remedies’ of encouragement through text messages: “We are supporting you.” “You are not alone.”

2. We took action: JPHMA provided homoeopathic remedies free of charge with the cooperation of Homeopathy Japan Co. The College of Holistic Homoeopathy provided free advice by telephone.

3. JPHMA organised a rescue team, which immediately delivered homoeopathic remedies and relief supplies.

4. JPHMA held free seminars on how to deal with disasters and provide emotional care, with cooperation from local JPHMA members.

5.  After the seminars, local JPHMA members provided free homoeopathic consultations.

6.  JPMHA collected approximately 4,500.000 Japanese yen, which were donated to affected prefectures and areas in need.

We helped and encouraged each other, which created a strong bond between us and a feeling of unity. JPHMA members seemed to be getting over this disaster more quickly than the general public, probably because they had been taking homoeopathic remedies on a daily basis.

The real meaning of the earthquake and of the radiation leak this time

Samuel Hahnemann said:

“Nations like the Germans, who have for centuries been gradually sinking deeper and deeper in soulless apathy and degrading serfdom, must first be trodden still deeper in the dust by the Western Conqueror, Napoleon, until their situation became intolerable; their mean opinion of themselves was thereby over-strained and removed; they again became alive to their dignity as men, and then, for the first time, they raised their heads as Germans.” (Quoted from Organon 6)

Japan is reaching a turning point. Japanese people have been deprived of patriotic spirit and pride in their own heritage, from the fear of atomic bombs and a sense of guilt after the war. Ancient Japanese spirituality and wisdom, which live in harmony with nature, have been forgotten. Japanese people now deny nature’s healing power and dependency on unnatural energy, medicines, vaccines, and agro-chemicals has been encouraged. The lives of humans, animals, plants, and insects are suffering, as are the land, water, and air; Japan is now facing the risk of national ruin.

It could be said that the reality of this catastrophe is that it is a mirror of Japanese people’s mind. We hope that this devastating experience will become an opportunity for change, so that this suffering would not have been in vain. The real recovery for Japanese people would be to overcome their fear of radiation, to regain their natural healing power and their ancient wisdom of living in harmony with nature. Japan, as the site of a previous disaster with the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, can be a beacon of hope for the world by showing that it is possible for a country facing the most extreme circumstances to recover and thrive once again. Homeopathy lies at the heart of this recovery and we, at JPHMA, will all do as much as we can to bring it into reality.

blossoming bud

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to everyone again: Interhomeopathy’s editors, Narayana Verlag, the people who visited Interhomeopathy’s Facebook and many other homeopathic colleagues around the world, who sent warm, encouraging messages and donations to JPHMA and me.

JPHMA Homoeopathy International Charity Conference, 8 – 10 October 2011.

Project "Homeopathy for L’aquila": Classical Homeopathy applied in the case of earthquake as a medical assistance plan

AUTHOR(S) : Marino, Francesco V.

PUB. DATE : July 2012

SOURCE : International Journal of High Dilution Resarch;2012, Vol. 11 Issue 40, p132



The project “Homeopathy for L’Aquila” was developed in order to provide humanitarian and professional assistance to the people of L’Aquila, who were the victims of a devastating earthquake during the night of April 6th, 2009. This project was promoted by the Federazione Italiana Associazioni Medici Omeopati (FIAMO) and supported by the governmental organization for Emergencies (Protezione Civile).

Aim: This paper is the report of that experience in the state of absolute emergency, which lasted 17 months. It aims to be a feasibility study as well as a model for further emergencies.

 Methodology: A medical office was located in a container of 60 square meters which was open from Monday to Friday, beginning in August 2009 and lasting until December 2010. This was provided by Protezione Civile with all the basic equipment, including a reception with a secretary. There were 16 homeopathic physicians and 2 acupuncturists, coming from all over Italy. Every month they rotated to offer free consultations of Classical Homeopathy, as well as Acupuncture and Neuraltherapy. Only people coming from the earthquake area were admitted: all of them signed an informed consent. An operational protocol was defined for the data collection. Each consultation was reported in a special register. The follow-up period lasted 17 months. The protocol consisted of the first consultation and at least 3 control visits, when possible at 30, 60 and 120 day intervals. As a primary outcome the main complaint of the patient was considered in its relation to the quality of life. This evaluation followed a slightly modified criterion of a qualitative scale: Outcome in Relation to Impact on Daily Living (ORIDL). A statistical analysis with some non parametric tests was carried out (Kolmogorof, X2. Even the most frequently prescribed homeopathic medicines were taken into consideration.

Results: 674 patients were visited from August 2009 to December 2010. In total 1,542 medical visits and treatments were carried out (1,070 as Homeopathy; 280 as Neuraltherapy; 192 as Acupuncture). 366 patients received Classical Homeopathy. The most frequently treated syndromes were of the “psychiatric” type (162 cases=44%), prevalently due to the consequences of the earthquake, such as sleeping disturbances, phobic states, anxious-depressive syndromes, etc. The drop-outs were 235 out of 366 (=64%). 107 patients presented for a minimum 3 follow-ups.

Here are the results: cured (52%), major improvement (33%), moderate and slight improvement (12%), no change (3%), deterioration (0%). The statistical analysis (D = 51 > 1,949; X2 = 48,039 > 10,83) showed a significance higher than 1‰. Within this group, 68 patients suffering from psychiatric syndromes, who came for a 3rd follow up, showed a similar trend: cured (50%), major improvement (24%), moderate and slight improvement (19%), no change (7%), deterioration (0%). Also in this case the statistical analysis indicated a significance higher than 1‰ (D = 30 > 1,949).

 The most frequently prescribed medicines were Pulsatilla, Sepia, Arsenicum Album, Argentum Nitricum and Lycopodium

Discussion: The numerous inconveniences due to the emergency certainly did not permit the usual control visits. Moreover a strict observance of the protocol was not always possible, which could explain such a high number of drop-outs. Those patients who completed the therapy had an incremental improvement in their health between the 1st and the 3rd follow-up visit. In the final analysis a series of “strengths” and “weaknesses” in the project were noted. This knowledge could be helpful for future emergencies. Conclusions: The project “Homeopathy for L’Aquila” allowed, for the first time in Italy, an official implementation of Homeopathy in an emergency plan of great impact, on the one hand; and, on the other hand, made a precious human and professional experience possible. Moreover the results obtained have demonstrated that Homeopathy can play an important role socially as well as therapeutically. To the present date there have neither been internationally recognized guidelines nor publications with similar data concerning emergencies. Therefore this project could represent an important reference point for similar events.

India to tie up top institutes for advanced research in Homoeopathy


New Delhi: Buoyed by the success of the World Summit in Mumbai, the Central Council for Research in Homeopathy (CCRH) plans to have a tie-up with other research organisations with the aim of taking the health-care industry to the next level.

With recent researches having yielded information on genomics which can be juxtaposed on the effect of homeopathic medicines individualised at molecular level, CCRH director general R.K. Manchanda has called for further research in the area.

He pointed out that CCRH — an autonomous body under the government of India’s Department of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) — has been instrumental in cutting-edge research publications on cancer, Japanese encephalitis, diabetes, urolithiasis, memory function and detection of nano-particles in high homeopathic dilutions.

The council has already found integration of homeopathic and allopathic medicines to be successful in tackling MDR-TB.

Manchanda expressed happiness the huge participation in the World Homeopathy Summit on April 11-12, which CCRH held the summit in association with the Global Homeopathy Foundation, proved that homeopathy is not a placebo medicine and that it is science.

The summit was attended by scientists from Brazil and Italy as well as those from the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), IIT-Bombay, Institute of Chemical Technology (ICT) Mumbai, Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) Hyderabad, Haffkine Institute Mumbai, Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) and Bose institute – Kolkata.

“The deliberations at the summit held recently and the ocean of information on the research done into treatment of AIDS, cancer, influenza and TB and the detection of nano-particles in homeopathic medicines will definitely take homeopathy to an altogether new dimension,” he said.

Questions have been raised about homeopathy — whether it is a science at all and if it works and how does it work. “Now, we are in a position to declare to the world that researches have conclusively proved that homeopathy works, and works effectively in several cases of complicated diseases,” declared Dr Rajesh Shah, organising secretary of the summit.

Molecular biologist Dr Gaurisankar from Bose institute – Kolkata, demonstrated that cancer tumour regressed significantly after administering homeopathic nano-particles of Calcaria Carbonicum. His research has proved that high-dilution homeopathic nano-particles could kill the cancer cells and considerably reduce the cancer tumours in rats.

Snake venom transformed into a homeopathic medicine could reduce the growth of HIV virus by inhibiting RT (reverse transcriptase), an enzyme required for the multiplication of the deadly HIV, Hepatitis C and Ebola virus, studies at Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT), Hyderabad, showed. IICT scientists Dr Praveen Kumar and Dr Prathama feel this research opens a new way to treat HIV and other such diseases, including Ebola.

In a study by Dr Khuda Bukshsh, genotoxic effects of arsenic trioxide poisoning were successfully treated using potentised arsenic metal, proving the very fundamental principle of homeopathy, which says that like can be cured by likes, if administered in extremely small dose.

Similarly, he demonstrated that mercury, cadmium and tin toxicity also reduced with the corresponding homeopathic medicines prepared from the same metals. “Treatment of toxicity is another area which could be addressed by homeopathy,” said GHF chairman Eswara Das, also an ex-advisor of AYUSH.

Cancer surgeon Dr Arun Jamkar, vice-chancellor of Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS), said in his keynote address that recent research has created adequate evidence for the efficacy of homeopathic medicines. He opined that homeopathy and conventional medicine could be integrated to benefit the patients.

A major research done in Brazil by Dr Leoni Bonamin and team demonstrated the preventive affects of homeopathic medicine prepared from the influenza virus. “This research opens up windows to many more research opportunities in India,” said Dr. Shah, who is also working on developing more medicines sourced from various germs.
