There are a lot of medicines in homeopathy, but benefits cannot be derived because of absence of
research and training, as it hampers proper treatment.
They suggested for establishing hospitals in all the 70 homeopathy medical colleges in the country as treatment cost is within reach.
Bangladesh Centre for Advanced Studies in Homeopathy (BCASH) organized the seminar titled 'Homeopathy for Digestive Disorder' at its Farmgate Office in the capital on Friday.
Dr. Sheikh Mohammad Iftekhar Uddin, Member of Bangladesh Homeopathic Board, attended as the chief guest with Dr. M A Quader, Chairman of (BCASH), in the chair.

The programme was organised marking the 263rd birth anniversary of Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician known as the Father of Homeopathy.      
Though recognized by World Health Organization (WHO), step has not yet been taken for flourishing homeopathy, experts said.        
The experts have regretted absence of research and higher education on homeopathy.
