People who were growing in the 70's, 80's, and 90’s never thought of homeopathy to be a big booming business sector. They had been just looking at it as a remedial option located in nooks and corners where one could drop in and get very cheap medications. In 2021, particularly when we are a year old in the pandemic, suddenly we realize that over the years, homeopathy as an industry has grown larger and larger. Figures indicate that homeopathy is being used by more than 600 million people worldwide of which 100 million people are Indians. Virtual homeopathy clinics are in vogue.
Medicircle features 2 such start-ups on the occasion of World Homeopathy Day (April 10), which are less than 7 years old and have done a good job in the field of homeopathic healthcare.
Welcome Cure started its business in late 2014. It is a one-stop solution offering quality homeopathic healthcare to people worldwide. It has been founded by Jawahar J. Shah and Punit Desai and has gone a long way due to its strong marketing strategies. The start-up strictly adheres to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act while managing international patients. It provides its patients consultations, diet and lifestyle modification advice, and homeopathic wellness packages.
MyDocZone was founded in the year 2015 by business partners, Nisheeth Pandey and Arpit Asthana. It connects homeopathic doctors and patients from all around the country on a single platform.
