What is Homoeopathy?
Homeopathy is an alternative health science that treats the patients with small amounts of the homoeopathic medicines. The unique feature of homoeopathic medicines is that these medicines in larger diseases can cause the same disease in healthy people, but in smaller amounts, these medicines cure the same disease in unhealthy people.
Scope of BHMS
Advantages of homoeopathy are treating the patient directly as a whole not the disease by its name, it do drug proving on human beings not on animals, no side effects, no use of serum and injections, using freshly prepared plants and tinctures, goes to root of problem and gives right medicine, doses are minimum and thus restore health gently. Medicines do not act directly on microorganisms but acts on human system to fight against disease process. Therefore, no microbial resistance develops against drugs. Homoeopathic drugs are not addictive once relief occurs, the patient can easily stop it. The treatment is cost effective than other therapeutic systems.
Career after BHMS
Homoeopathic education provides its service almost in all parts of country. Physicians are giving their service in public and private sector in both rural and urban areas. In public sector jobs are conducted by union Public Service Commission (UPSC) and State Public service Commissions.
Homoeopathy is serving people through government, private and NGOs.
Education in homoeopathy allows the graduates to develop independent public health providers.
Private Clinical practice after BHMS
Registration with registers maintained by the state bodies (State Homoeopathic Board/Councils) and central body (CCH) permits practice of medicine through homoeopathic at all levels primary, secondary, and tertiary health care. Most of the practitioners give medicines from their own clinic which does not required any dispensing licenses. Homoeopathic software that is used by practitioners make homoeopathy easy to maintain record, assist in case taking, recommendations, and follow up.
Government Jobs after BHMS
The basic health care service is provided to general public by homeopathic hospitals and dispensaries set by government. The homoeopathic dispensaries run by Central and State Governments and other bodies including Municipal Councils provide primary health care services.
