Homeopathy has a distinct air of science involves books of rules, complex procedures, a proprietary lingo. Secondly, the method of carefully listening to the patient, meticulously recording every symptom experienced, lots of details from the patientâ€™s background, is bound to make practitioners feel important and a lot of patients feel good. Homoeopathy is widely used, but specific effects of homoeopathic remedies seem implausible. In the present work pre-clinical trials have been performed to show that the Homeopathic Formulations have some Pharmacological effect. In the present work, ethanol extract of withania somnifera shows significantly positive antidiabetic activity on rats when compared with Glibenclamide standard antidiabetic drug. Antidiabetic effect is thought to be due to increased hepatic metabolism, increased insulin release from pancreatic beta cells and/or insulin sparing effect. Homeopathic formulation of Potency Q, 30 and 200 shows significant pharmacological effect in animals (Rats) and shows the Pre-clinical effects. It shows Homeopathic formulations is not mere Placebo but have some Pharmacological/Therapeutic effect.
