Schwabe News Volume 3 | Issue 3 | June 2012
Homoeopathy has been in use in veterinary medicine since long. In the Liga Congress last year held at New Delhi, there was a separate session on veterinary homoeopathy with as much as 13 presentations. You will be glad to know that the National Zoological Park at Delhi uses homoeopathy to treat animals. The history of how they have started using homoeopathy and other alternative systems is interesting. It is covered under homoeopathy related news. Apart from the above, there are three more encouraging reports about homoeopathy showing growing trend among the policy makers to involve homoeopathy in the country’s health care delivery. First is launching of a widespread campaign by the Government of Madhya Pradesh to prevent recurrence of malaria. Second is conducting dengue preventive camp series by the Tamil Nadu Government Homoeopathic Medical College. And third is the consideration of including homoeopathy in its dispensaries by the Chennai Corporation following other cities. In addition to these, a piece of news from the Schwabe India’s Sales and Marketing Department throws a light about how the demand for original German quality homoeopathic medicines is increasing.
Fucus vesiculosus is drug often used in mother tincture for thyroid related obesity. A recent proving by Dr. Willmar Schwabe Group in association with Dr. David Riley has brought out its many mental, physical and general symptoms. It is given under provings. Earlier it was reported that the drug contains iodine, thus it has organ affinity for thyroid gland.
Daphne indica is a drug having organ affinity for muscles, bones and skin. It was first proved by Bute in 1837. Its use in mother tincture for prostatic, gastro-intestinal and urinary problems, pains, exhaustion, etc. is well-known. It is now much lauded for its usefulness in the tobacco de-addiction. The complete information of this mother tincture is under mother tincture info.
People complaining convalescence and general weakness with normal laboratory parameters are increasing, especially among the metropolitans. One reason experts point out is increasing stress and overstraining and growing trend of eating unbalanced diet in the form of junk foods with more calories but less essential nutrients like vitamins and minerals. Minerals play a major role in managing these cases along with proper advice about the balanced diet. Schwabe Germany’s famed product Biofungin® helps majorly the homoeopaths in tackling these cases. Its efficacy in anaemia is well known among homoeopaths. The product information is under ‘Product watch’.
Under ‘Research news’, there are very interesting abstracts viz. (i) antiviral activity of Schwabe’s Influcid (Alpha-CF) against most influenza viruses, (ii) fifty-millesimal potencies of Opium in the treatment of alcohol-dependent patients, (iii) effect of homoeopathic constitutional remedies on EEG cordance change patterns and (iv) arsenic stressed bioassays with duckweed and yeast regarding their response towards homoeopathic preparations.
