Asking the delegates to help homeopathy reclaim its position in the country's healthcare system, the Chief Minister said the alternate system of medicine is going through a transitional phase. He said that research being done in the field will help dispel many fears and doubts that have emerged about its efficacy.

Sayeed called for giving space to Unani medicine so that it gets a level-playing field and integrates effectively into the state's public health services.

"I hope the Health minister shows us the way in facilitating revival of homeopathy so that it regains the stature it enjoyed in old times when it had panacea to our ills," he added.

The two-day conference, which has attracted a large number of delegates from all over the world including the US, the UK, Germany, Sri Lanka and UAE, was earlier scheduled last year but could not be held due to floods in the state.

Referring to the predilection of people for taking medicines for "instant results" in a fast-moving world, Sayeed pointed out the efficacy of homeopathy as a time-tested system which still has a wide acceptance among masses in our country.

"The Health department will have to travel an extra mile to promote Unani medicine in times when its mainstream counterparts like allopathy are making huge strides and gaining popularity," he said.
