Message To the Homoeopathic Fraternity

Dear friends,
Always feel proud that you are now a member of Homoeopathic fraternity, the science which is emerging in every dimension. As it is said by Swami Vivekananda that “Expansion is life and contraction is death”. Homoeopathic science is now accepted world wide as the second line of treatment and definitely within a short span of time it will take the credit of first line. So let us stick to the motto of Master Hahnemann ‘Dare to be wise’.
With regards
Dr B. P. Panda
