Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, (AETOSWire): The world’s largest chain of homeopathic clinics, Dr Batra’s Homeopathy, launched their first clinic in Abu Dhabi on World Homeopathy Day, 10th April 2019. The brand, Dr Batra’s, is synonymous with homeopathy. Dr. Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient for medicine (Homeopathy) and India’s leading homeopath, founded Dr Batra’s Multi-Specialty Homeopathy as a patient-driven institution in Mumbai in 1982. With over 225 multi-specialty clinics operating across 125 cities in India, UK, UAE, Bahrain and Bangladesh, today, Dr Batra’s has over 1.5 million happy patients globally with a success rate of 91% as authenticated by American Quality Assessors.
Homeopathy is the 2nd largest system of medicine in the world according to World Health Organization. It is practiced in 86 countries and is consumed by over 200 million people globally. France is the largest contributor to the homeopathy market, followed by Germany. In the UK, the British Royal Family has been under homeopathic care since 1980. According to Global TGI Barometer, 6-9 million people in the UK prefer homeopathy.
Homeopathy works to eradicate the root cause of ailments as opposed to just providing symptomatic relief. Moreover, homeopathy offers treatment that is holistic, safe, cost-effective and non-invasive. It has shown remarkable results in the UAE in treating depression, anxiety, stress allergies, child health ailments – child immunity and growth, hair loss and skin disorders, adding to its popularity. According to a survey conducted by DHCC, 48 % of the UAE population tried Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM) and 55% were happy with the results.
Commenting on the launch, Dr. Akshay Batra, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Dr Batra’s Group of Companies, said, “We have seen a rise in demand for homeopathy in recent years. With patients looking for holistic healthcare options, we are delighted to announce our foray into Abu Dhabi. We are currently located in 5 countries and have 10 international clinics in UK including one in Harley Street, in Dubai at the Dubai Health Care City (DHCC), in Bahrain at the KIMS Bahrain Medical Center (KBMC), in Dhaka (Bangladesh) and now Abu Dhabi.”
