Many plants synthesize substances that are useful in the maintenance of health in human
beings. Over the time, the botanical studies carried out to know the in and out of these
plants have seen a major evolution. The studies on physico-chemical, pharmacological and
pharmacognostical properties of the plants have been carried out and many new methods
have been designed to make the studies on plants more reliable and free of ambiguity.
Various species of plants are largely used in Homoeopathy, in parts or as a whole.
Unfortunately, our understanding of the plants and their homoeopathic uses still remains
limited, as opposed to the vast up-gradation that has been done in the plant literature. It is
absolutely necessary that the present homoeopathic literature is also updated
incorporating the latest findings of the drug Standardization, drug proving and clinical
verification studies of these plants.
Realising its responsibility of upgrading the monographs of homoeopathic drugs
according to the latest knowledge and research, the Council took up the study of the
medicine 'Acalypha indica', in an exhaustive form. The monograph includes the key
findings of the research on this medicine in respect of three areas like Drug
Standardization, Drug proving (Homoeopathic Pathogenetic Trial) and Clinical
Verification, by the Council's scientists. The results of the study, though reliable, await the
confirmation of the experienced physicians, who are expected to use the medicine for the
given indications and testify the same.
It is not only my duty, but also an honour to present this research work to the homoeopathic
fraternity. I believe, the monograph will be of help, both to the students and professionals
