History of CCRH

When we launched this website in 2019, we were brought the domain for the acronym CCRH India as we beleived it represents our vision for building the “Central Consumer Resource for Helpful Information in India”.

But in few month we realized that it also stand for “Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy” and this domain was previously owned by same organization. Though, we are not connected to council in any manner and if you have landed on our website and looking for central council for India, you can visit their official website here.

Here is what previously on this page, in case you are looking for it –



To streamline research in Homoeopathy, a need of planned and organized research was strongly felt by the Government of India. As a result, the Central Council for Research in Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy (CCRIMH) was established in 1969 to carry out researches in Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani medicine, Yoga and Homoeopathy. The Central Council for Research in Homoeopathy (CCRH), one of the successor organizations to the erstwhile CCRIMH was established as an autonomous organization, at New Delhi in 1978. Ever since, CCRH remains a unique organization engaged in various research  studies  in Homoeopathy .
