Mangaluru: 'Invenio 2019' a national conference on Homeopathy with the theme Homeopathy holds the key to the future of medicine, was inaugurated by the Chief Guest Nadoja Dr. BT Rudresh, Hon. Executive Committee Member, Board of Governors, CCH, AYUSH, Government of India and President, Karnataka Board of Homeopathic System of Medicine, at the Decennial Auditorium of the Father Muller Medical College & Hospital, here today. The Conference was organized by Fr. Muller Homeopathic Medical College & Hospital, Deralakatte, Mangaluru, (Accredited by NAAC with 'A' Grade), a Unit of Father Muller Charitable Institutions.
Addressing the packed auditorium, which was a testimony to the popularity of this non-invasive and holistic system of medicine, Dr. Rudresh said, he will always promote and uphold the Homeopathic System of Medicine in the Country. "For", he said, "the country's vision of health for all by 2020, cannot be achieved without Hoemopaathy - it is the most cost-effective treatment system in the country; all you need is a good Homeopath, a table, a chair, and Rs: 10000 worth of medicine to start a dispensary". He said that he is working with the state Government to set up 200 dispensaries in the state's taluks and villages. Providing an insight into his efforts to promote homeopathy as the president of the Karnataka Board of Homeopathic System of Medicine, he said his other promise - that of constructing a Homeo Bhavan - is also nearing fulfillment. "I have not taken my salary and other perks from the Board for 76 Months, saving for the board Rs: 50,000 a month, which along with the savings already with the Board, has enabled us to construct an administrative block on the prime land allocated to the board in the heart of Bengaluru. It will be inaugurated in the next couple of months," he said. The prime land worth 40 crores, on which it is being constructed, was allotted he said, after he appealed to the former minister in the Karnataka Government Shri Ramesh Kumar for the same, using his good offices. He said Homeopaths, should learn and practice well, not run after money with gimmicks. Money, he said will flow from good practice and he cited his own example - He came from a small town and didnt know a word of English when he first came to Bengaluru in 1975. Touching upon admissions to Homeopathy Colleges, Dr. Rudresh, said he is working with the AYUSH ministry, to ensure the appropriate percentile in the NEET Entrance exam is fixed for admission. The current percentile, he said, means that the Homeopathy becomes the last resort of a candidate. He urged the students who took up homeopathy to learn to love it and practice it well. Dr. Rudresh also commended the Fr. Muller Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital for organizing the national conference, and its contribution to Homeopathy through its manufacturing and treatment nits, and education.
