In modern scientific age, out of the world-recognized systems of medicine, Homoeopathy has acquired a great advancement within a short time in India. This system of medicine is very simple, gentle, economic, non-toxic, free from side effects, and is based on the principle – Similia Similibus Curentur.
There is considerable interest of the lay public as well as the members of other medical profession in Homoeopathy. This is true that even allopathic practitioners are the most awakened, and seek the alternative mode of therapy because of the side effects of modern drugs.
It’s a well-established fact that Homoeopathy system of medicine is well recognized by the government of India, and accepted as one of the main streams of providing health care. Pursuing career in Homoeopathy is at par with other therapeutic systems, having well standardized UG [BHMS] and PG [MD (Hom.)] Courses.
