Homoeopathy is a nature based science and its relation with plants has been there
since inception. Most of the homoeopathic drugs are of plant origin exhibiting
varied curative properties. The literature of some of the medicinal plants when
found complete in all the three aspects of the Drug Standardization, Drug proving
and Clinical verification blooms in the form of a monograph.
As, it has been an endeavor of the Council to prove the new drugs and bring in front
of the profession, one of the newly proven drugs chosen from the plant kingdom
is "Thea chinensis", whose leaves are used to produce the commonly used beverage,
'tea' in our day to day life.
Thea chinensis, an evergreen shrub, is a native of eastern Asia. It is extensively
cultivated in China, Japan and India. Several varieties of this plant found are Thea
viridis (green tea) and Thea bohea (black tea). The efficacy of this drug in treating
asthma, angina pectoris, peripheral vascular disease and coronary artery disease is
found remarkable. Due to its antioxidant properties, it is found beneficial in lowering
the cholesterol levels and in combating various cancerous conditions.
The study carried out by the Council's scientists on this drug has yielded valuable
information about the several conditions in which it is indicated.
It gives me immense pride to present this work to the homoeopathic fraternity and
hope this medicine soon finds a place in your prescription pads through this
I look forward that the profession shares its clinical experiences with the Council in
the further research study of this drug.
