GHF looks forward to spread the knowledge obtained at the summit worldwide

Global Homeopathic foundation
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.

Risk of type 2 diabetes with statin use

Risk of Statin use
The link between statin use and higher risk of diabetes is not new. Back in 2013, for example, Medical News Today reported on a study published in The BMJ that found certain statins - particularly atorvastatin (Lipitor), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor) - raised the risk of diabetes by up to 22%. 
A new study published in the journal Diabetologia finds the use of statins - drugs commonly used to lower cholesterol - may significantly increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, and that this risk remains even after accounting for confounding factors, including age, smoking status and body mass index.

A research conducted at the Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, has proved that homeopathic medicines contain nanoparticles that are vital for medical treatment. The study conducted by Dr E S Rajendran at the Nano-Science Lab of the university, using ‘Aurum Metallicum (6C to CM potency)’, has conclusively proved that homeopathic dilutions contain nanoparticles.

Homeopathy helps reduce hemophilia treatment costs

hemophilia and homeopathy
A combination of homoeopathy and allopathy sciences has helped reduce the cost of treating blood disorder haemophilia from Rs 1.3 lakh to over Rs 30,000 a year, says a research conducted by two doctors, based in Mumbai and Nashik. Over 750 patients, including 430 from Mumbai, have been treated for haemophilia through this process since 2007. The study will be given for publication in a medical journal.
