The affair of plants with Homoeopathy has been a long one. From its budding time, the
relation of Homoeopathy with the plants has deepened. Since Homoeopathy is a nature-
based science and the plants comprise a major portion of the Mother Nature,
Homoeopathy is bound to be influenced by the curative powers of these elements of
substance, that we know by the name of plants. Tylophora indica is one of the most easily
found plants in the Indian territory and also one of the major contributions of India to the
homoeopathic materia medica. Because the plant can be found easily in India, the Council
took up the task of studying it exhaustively, as then it could prove to be a reliable Indian
homoeopathic drug. The study included various aspects of drug standardization, like
physico-chemical, pharmacological and pharmacognostical studies done by the scientists
of the Council. The drug proving (homoeopathic pathogenetic trial) and clinical
verification studies have also yielded valuable information about the several conditions in
which this drug can be indicated.
As a dedicated research organization in Homoeopathy, it has been an endeavour of the
Council to conduct researches on a number of partially studied drugs and a few new drugs.
This monograph is an outcome of one such extensive study on Tylophora indica.
I feel glad to present the work to the homoeopathic profession and I hope, after you go
through the following pages, this medicine will make it to your stock and eventually to your
prescription pad too. I request all the homoeopathic physicians to share with the Council
their clinical experience of using this medicine, so as to make it a wider and a more reliable
choice of their fellow physicians.
