Mangalore, Oct 8:
A two-day conference on homeopathy was inaugurated at Father Muller Homoeopathic Medical College here on Saturday October 8.
In his inaugural address, Dr Reju M T, deputy commissioner of Udupi district said that a wider part of the public health system needs to focus on homeopathic treatment.

He noted that students who pass out from private colleges seldom opt to serve in primary health centres, especially those in naxal-infested areas. In this complex world, there is a need for young medical professionals to head towards such backward villages, he said.
Guest of honour Dr Shantharam Shetty, vice-chancellor, Nitte University said that Dr Reju's advice could be followed provided governing system sees that basic facilities and infrastructures are provided in such places.
Speaking further he said that be it, allopathy, ayurveda, naturopathy or homeopathy, a doctor should first and foremost have sympathy for patients. Fr Augustus Muller taught the people of Mangalore how to treat patients, he added, and said that to be a good homoeopathy practitioner one should be innovative enough to develop this field.
Presiding over the inaugural session Fr Patrick Rodrigues, director, FMCI said that every year there has been a 25 percent increase in the number of students opting for homoeopathy. Misconception regarding this science should be removed at the earliest to give a facelift to the profession.
Praful Vijayakar, the resource person, spoke on the topic of predictive homoeopathy.
Dr Srinath Rao, principal, FMHMC welcomed. Fr Wilfred Prakash D’Souza, administrator was present. Dr Madonna Joseph, organising secretary delivered the vote of thanks.
