Prasanta Banerji and Pratip Banerji, who have been practising homeopaths for over 50 years and 20 years respectively, are readily associated with the Banerji Protocols of homeopathic treatment, under which specific homeopathic medicines are prescribed for specific diseases and ailments, in specific potencies and dosages, often with frequent repetitions, and also in combination with other medicines.
Banerjis’ work under their Banerji Protocols has in recent years served as the basis for making homeopathy scientifically acceptable through research projects in collaboration with internationally well-known American institutes like The University of Texas M D Anderson Cancer Center, The University of Columbia, The University of Kansas Medical Center and The University Southern California.
In Kolkata, along with their assistant homeopaths, the Banerjis treat between 1000 and 1200 patients at their day clinic and free evening clinic daily.
