016 Hon. Prime MInister of India Mr. Narendra Modi is performing kayakalpa cikitsa to India, with the help of Ambanis


Hon. Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, seems to be performing 'kAyakalpa cikitsa' (A treatment of total cleansing up of body, the phrase a part of Traditional Indian Medicine 'Ayurveda' (Life Science). For this, he seems to need the help of Shri Mukesh Ambani and his honoured spouse Smt. Nitu Ambani. In Oct. 2014, he inaugurated in a 19 storied building in South Mumbai, on the invitation of Shri Mukesh Ambani. The inauguration speech, and its news can be found at the webpage of Prime Minister of India.

In June 2014, in our blog post No. 015


we requested our Hon. Prime Minister, to initiate an inquiry to ascertain whether Homoeopathic Medical System is Scientific or Not. At that time, we wrote:
"...I appeal to Mr. Narendra Modi to appoint a Commission of Enquiry to go into the scientific validity of the homoeopathy as a system of medicine. This is very important because homoeopathic medicines do not contain the medical substances which their labels indicate, owing to excess dilution made under a mistaken impression of creating potencies. The Union Government and the 29 State Governments are spending millions of Rupees for running Homoeo hospitals, clincs, Colleges, Universities and the so-called Research Stations. ..."


In Oct. 2014, we see this 19 storied building of Ambanis, and a Homoeo Hospital in it. The Comment made by Hon. Prime Minister, in his inauguration speech is very important.
PM: Just as this hospital has undergone kayakalp (renewal), India too can undergo kayakalp. (renewal).

ybrao-a-donkey's personal views not intended to be imposed on others


Now, it is very clear for whom this Reliance Trust Hospital is intended. It is not clear what concessions the Government of India, Government of Maharashtra, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation, and others are extending to this Great Great Hospital.

No poor person, can obviously enter this 19 floored Charity Hospital. Hail Mr. Mukesh Ambani.


A Comment from "http://bombaywalla.org/category/structures/facades/" is worth noting.


Link to the above: .
(1925), presently Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital And Research Centre (2014), New Queen’s Road.

Sir Harkisondas Narotumdas is cross. He cannot fathom how some newbie knight called Sir H. N. Reliance could colonise his 89 year old medical establishment at New Queen’s Road.

Sir Harkisondas has dispatched a letter to Her Majesty for the immediate resolution of this grievous injustice.

015 Mr. Narendra Modi may please order an enquiry into scientific validity of homoeopathy

Topics for discussion: 015, Scientific validity, Narendra Modi

A 2012 quote from the website of Shri Narendra Modi, our 2014 Prime Minister:
Link to go to the website of Shri Narendra Modi which contains the original. Click to go to http://www.narendramodi.in/cm-inaugurates-national- homeopathy-conference-in-gandhinagar
CM inaugurates national homeopathy conference in Gandhinagar CM asks homeopaths to create an atmosphere of trust among people for the homeopathic treatment

Inaugurating the national homeopathy conference in Gandhinagar today Chief Minister Narendra Modi called upon homeopaths to create an atmosphere of trust among people for the homeopathic treatment.

Even as the homeopathic medicines are affordable and free from side effects, homeopaths should create awareness regarding it among the people. If the practitioners of homeopathy themselves lack the faith in homeopathy, people can not have trust on it. Success stories of homeopathy should properly be put before the people, he suggested.

There should not be a question of conflict between allopathy, ayurveda and homeopathy. All the three systems of treatment have some best things in them, he said.

I appeal to Mr. Narendra Modi to appoint a Commission of Enquiry to go into the scientific validity of the homoeopathy as a system of medicine. This is very important because homoeopathic medicines do not contain the medical substances which their labels indicate, owing to excess dilution made under a mistaken impression of creating potencies. The Union Government and the 29 State Governments are spending millions of Rupees for running Homoeo hospitals, clincs, Colleges, Universities and the so-called Research Stations.
No homoeopathic student/doctor/professor , unfortunately spends a little time on making an inquiry into the scientific validity of their system of medicine. Every one of them goes on supporting the potency theory.
When homoeo medicines fail to produce relief/cure, many homoeo doctors simply shift to prescribing allopathic medicines, without pondering over why they failed to produce the desired results (they do not bother to know that they are nothing but alcohol, sugar, milk sugar or some other filler, but definitely not the medical substance).

014 Can we consider the research by Institute of Chemical Technology, Matunga, as scientific?



Topics for discussion: homoeopathy, Institute of Chemical Technology, Pain Killers, Times of India
Times of India- India Times.com published a news item dated 9th April 2014 which reported that Homoeopathy is effective in treating arthritis.

Click to go to http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/mumbai/Homoeopathy-pills-as-effective-as-painkillers-finds-study/articleshow/33518170.cms

Gist of the Research said to have been conducted at Institute of Chemical Technology, Mathunga, Mumbai (रसायन तंत्रज्ञान् संस्था, मुंबई) by Asst. Professor Sadhana Sathaye:--







...The rodents were arranged in four groups. The first group was healthy and hadn't been biologically engineered to suffer from arthritis like the rest. The second group was given water as a placebo, while the third was given homoeopathic medicines. The last group was given a popular diflofenac painkiller, which is widely used to treat inflammation of tissues among arthritic patients.

The allopathic medicines reduced the pain quickly, but by the seventh day, the homoeopathic pills were as effective.

By Day 14, the homoeopathic medicines seemed better.

Homoeopathic pills could emerge as the treatment of choice for patients with chronic pain.

Homoeopathic medicines have no side-effects like allopathic painkillers.

In the last five years, many studies have been done to prove the efficacy of homoeopathic pills. Recently, the state government's review of patients suffering from chinkungunya showed that those treated with homoeopathy had done far better than those on allopathic medicines. --Dr B H Shah, administrator of the Maharashtra Council of Homoeopathy.



ybrao-a-donkey's comments



This news report is not enough. Medical research, unfortunately both in allopathy, and homoeopathy, suffer from researchers' biases.

They are tailor made to cater to the needs of those persons/agencies who commission their work and pay for it.

Pain killing processes both in allopathy and homoeopathy, need greater explanations. Satisfactory pharmaco-kinetic explanations should be given on how the homoeopathic drugs administered by them reduced the pain.

Size of the sample has not been given.

ICT has to conduct a placebo controlled double blind trial.

ICT should verify and specify, even if be in nanograms or micrograms, the quantum of the medical substance in each dose administered, apart from sugar, alcohol and other fillers used to make up the dose. The unscientific nature of homoeopathy arises from the basic fact that the homoeo medicines are diluted to such an extent that they contain nothing but alcohol, sugar, water except the medical substance. Since the quantity has not been given, we have to presume that alcohol and sugar can be as effective as allopathic pain-killers.

http://www.ictmumbai.edu.in ICT website should make available a pdf copy of the full-length report, so that public can benefit from their studies.
