Dr. John Martin Honigberger is the person who is recognised to have brought homeopathy to India for the first time. He treated several Maharajas and was made officer-in-charge of a hospital. This royal patronage eventually helped the system to have its roots in India. In India, homeopathy has today become the third most popular method of treatment, after Allopathy and Ayurveda.
At present, one can find nearly 186 homeopathic medical colleges in India. It is estimated that there are about quarter million homeopaths in India. The present legal status of homeopathy is very much at par with the conventional medicine in India.
