STATUS : Present status of Electropathy falls under the same category as
had been before its recognition
in 1973. Electropathy is developing as an alternative system of medicine
and has been accepted as such by a large number of people.
NEHM of India has entered inot collaboration with Dr. Y.S.P. University
of H.&F., Solan (HP) under memorandum of Understanding.
Which will provide medicinal plants to NEHM of India for the preparation
of Medicines. For this purpose a land in Delhi has been acquired
by the Society where some of the medicinal plants have already been
planted. Most of the plants are already grown in the Union territory
and Solan. The medicines are prepared from the medicinal plants with
distilled water. The medicinal character of the plants is explained
in the Materia Medica and Practice of Medicine, which is one of the
important subjects in the curriculum system of Electropathy and is
taught to the students in the Electropathy Colleges.
to the Govt. of India for formation of Expert Committee for recommendations
for recognition of the system, the
Dy. Secretary, Ministry of Health wrote to the Minister and had stated "Before
Homoeopathy was recognised a large number of institutions were imparting
medical education and Homoeopathic practitioners were practising
in Homoeopathy without Government recognition. Similar situation
exists in the case of Electro Homoeopathy".
NEHM of India has always been for the recognition of this system
of medicine and was knocking the doors of Union of India for this
purpose. On 13.04.1993 the Chairman, NEHM of India had introduced
a Private member Bill No. 20/93 in the Parliament (Rajya Sabha) and
discussion was held on 19.05.1995. The Health Minister stated, "It
is necessary to have more development of this pathy and it will be
recognised when the public will recognise it."
It has been stated that Homoeopathy got recognition under Central
Council of Research in Homoeopathy Act 1973 and Electropathy does
not fall under the purview of CCH-Act-1973. The Director General,
Central Council of Research in Homoeopathy and Dr. Augustine, Advisor,
Homoeopathy Govt. of India has clearly stated that Electropathy and
Homoeopathy are different from each other, this has already been
pointed out by the Expert Committee.
The society, NEHM of India is doing selfless service to the common
man and others. NEHM of India is fully devoted to the system of medicine.
The object of NEHM of India is to educate the students and help them
to come out as doctors to provide relief.
Electropathy medical system falls under the category of traditional
and alternative system of medicine in which five systems are already
recognised by the Govt. of India i.e. Ayurveda, Unani, Homoeopathy,
Yoga & Naturopathy. Peoples are accepting at large as a Alternative
system of medicine.
During discussion on a questionnaire, the Union Health Minister
has stated in the Rajya Sabha on 18.03.97 "regarding electropathy
system of medicine that I want more documents about the progress
of electropathy development to be sent to his Ministry. I request
to Hon'ble member and electropathy organisations to furnish more
details/documents regarding development, so that Health Ministry
can take up the case for recognition of electropathy medical science/system".
Thus NEHM of India has since been sending its progress report towards
the promotion development and reaserch of electropathy as asked by
the Ministry in its order dated 14.06.1991.
Electropathy medicine is natural, harmless, no side effect that
means electropathy medicines are good for health because the patients
do not require hospitalisation. Neither any organisation, Drug Research
Department Union of India, Ministry of Health, Govt. of India and
any other State Government have not complained that electropathy
medicines are not good for public Health."
At the initiative and effects of Dr. N.K. Awasthy Electropathy medical
science is expanded every nook and corner of India. He is stading
at the door of the Govt. for its recognition and the time is not
far that Electropathy will get recognition from the Govt.
