EDITORIAL – Dr. Harleen Kaur
The real question is not that whether or not Homoeopathy works, it is ‘HOW IT WORKS’. Homoeopathy has been standing years against skepticism. The vital force (Homoeopaths) of this beautiful body (Homoeopathy) has always been stronger than the disease element (skeptics) and so it is able to fight back and establish the harmony between Homoeopathy and its believers. If the vital force gives way to disease, the disease force will be stronger. i.e., we Homoeopaths are responsible for these skepticisms rising against Homoeopathy. So we have to fight back, by not only answering ‘does it work’ but also ‘How it works?’

REAPS AND HEAPS

HOMOEOPATHY THE SYSTEM OF 21ST CENTUARY – DR. AZAD RAI
By  Ass. Prof. SGNDH Med College, Ludhiana

Author describes about the merits of Homoeopathic treatment.- It is fast, safe, cost effective, gentle and improves the general health. He calls upon the Homoeopathic medical colleges and senior physicians to provide better training to students. Awareness about Homoeopathy is increasing among the educated community and Govt. is also promoting Homoeopathy. As per the going Homoeopathy will emerge as the most effective method of treatment and will rise from the position of an alternative medicine to first line of treatment in most cases.

IS HOMOEOPATHY BLEEDING TO DEATH
By  Dr. Manish Bhatia, Editor Hpathy.com

Writer gives some efforts occurred in the world against homoeopathy. Medicines are toxic, Medicines are placebo – lancet, Homoeopaths loot people by giving malaria  prophylactics, Stopping of homoeopathy degree courses in U.K.,  Movement for closing Homoeopathic hospitals at U.K. saying tax should not be spent for unscientific things., There is about 50% drop in cases of Homoeopaths at U.K. , As in the heaven of Homoeopathy we think we are safe, but movements against Homoeopathy has also begun in India and what happened in U.S.A can also happen in Europe and in India.

The financial and political strength of the allopathic syndicate is behind all these movements.  We Homoeopaths have together to reverse the tide or otherwise we will be swept away.

PRESSURE GROWS AGAINST HOMOEOPATHY IN U.K.
By   Dr. R.N. Wahi

He criticizes Prof. Michael Baun and David Colquhon, for writing article against British Society of Homoeopaths on conducting a symposium on A.I.D.S. He says that they must go through works of pioneers unprejudicedly before making such fallacies. He calls them as agents of pharmaceutical lobbies who are afraid of a reduction in turnover of about 38 million pounds of medicine by 2012

HOMOEOPATHY VS QUACKERY
By Dr. Harleen Kaur

Homoeopathy + rational reasoning = The latest advent in modern medicine

Editor calls upon the Homoeopaths to get explained the modus operandi of Homoeopathic medicines as clear as functioning of heart or liver, with the help of Nano-science  and other laws in physics, in order to meet the equation. On the other hand if we continue to produce only clinical results and say Homoeopathy is not quackery we can’t alleviate the confusion caused in the mind of people by articles like those published in the Lancet..Some research works which proved Homoeopathy is not more than placebo therapy.. These experiments had methodological defects.
