With deepest regrets we share the loss of a legend of homeopathy of this era, Dr. Prasanta Banerji. The man who created a history of sorts has left a legacy of knowledge of homeopathy. He died unexpectedly of a sudden heart attack.
Dr. Prasanta Banerji, Founder and Director of Prasanta Banerji Homeopathic Research Foundation, is famed for establishing ‘The Banerji Protocols’ of treatment. These protocols have brought lucidity and user friendliness into a treatment practice using ultra dilutional homeopathic medicine.
He was a consultant physician, an honorary advisor to the Minister of Health and Family Welfare of the Government of India, member of a key advisory group of experts and also of an apex committee. He had also been a member of the Program Advisory Committee for the National Cancer Control Program of the Government of India's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
Carrying the legacy of Shri Ishwar Chandra Bandyopadhyay, he later received the title of ‘Vidyasagar’ (ocean of knowledge).
Dr. Prasanta Banerji turned out to be a Vidyasagar in true sense for the homeopathic fraternity.
