This issue’s current news covers four different events. First is the CME programme organised by Schwabe India in Kolkata. Two notable personalities, an eminent jurist Justice A. K. Ganguli and a senior homoeopathic research official Dr. D. B. Sarkar, have honoured the occasion as guests. Two eminent speakers Dr. Sunirmal Sarkar and Dr. Anirban Sukul have given the lectures which were knowledgeable to the attendees. More than two hundred homoeopaths from all over West Bengal have attended the programme. Second is about the merit awards given by Schwabe India to the top 3 BHMS students of Dr. B. R. Sur Homoeopathic Medical College, Hospital and Research Centre, New Delhi. Third is about the workshop conducted at Delhi Board of Homoeopathic System of Medicine and the fourth is about the Schwabe India’s participation at the Indian Science Festival held at New Delhi.
Proving section covers Ginkgo biloba and Azadirachta indica. These two are relatively newer remedies. Their use is based on both traditional and recent research data in mother tincture and low potencies. Like many other remedies in homoeopathy, proving has provided lot many other indications in high potencies. Though they have been proved previously upto an extent, the new provings have given elaborated symptoms. A combined materia medica from both old and new provings is given.
Two rare drugs, Lemna minor and Duboisia myoporoides, have been given under Mother tincture info. Though they are covered by Boericke’s Materia Medica, they are not widely used. Just to equip the homoeopaths with these lesser known drugs, their scientific information have been compiled and presented.
Product watch covers Klimaktolan, perhaps the only product in homoeopathy for menopausal syndrome, and Silicea Pentarkan, perhaps the only product in homoeopathy for stretch marks. A recent study published on Klimaktolan confirms its anti-proliferative effect on breast cancer cells, which is covered under research news along with other studies on Lycopodium’s effect on memory and its nano-study and a study on nosodes.
