Special Issue: Research Updates – Homeopathy Volume 7, Issue 1

IPRH – Seven Years and Counting

Passion is what drives us ahead

  • What is research in homeopathy all about?
  • We talk of research, but where to find that research?
  • Is there any way to link researchers and clinicians?
  • Homeopathic research is expanding, is there any way it can be woven methodically?
  • Is there any website to offer exclusive about research in homeopathy?
  • Is there any way to help research grow in homeopathy?

These were some of the routine questions which used to bombard my head since I developed a research interest in homeopathy. These intrigued my mind and affected my thoughts deeply. Therefore, I decided to invest my energy and time to do “something” in research, “something” productive, intuitive and open to the profession. The Initiative to Promote Research in Homeopathy (IPRH) was founded to address these questions and today it is celebrating its seven-year of existence, struggle, passion and foresight.

All these years, there have been challenges, issues and learnings, but one thing which overpowered all of them is the passion. Passion is not what you see, follow or do, it is something which drives you always. I thank all readers and followers of homeopathy for their support, guidance, motivation, feedback and criticism that has kept my passion alive to run IPRH. I hope this passion grows with time and IPRH growing to newer heights in coming years.
