Homeopathy Forum started this petition to Ministry of ayush and

 

The vision of establishing the Ministry of AYUSH was that all treatment approaches have a legitimate place in the health delivery in our country and all approaches need to be supported and allowed to develop.

 

AYUSH disciplines have a great role in manning the Health and Wellness centres in the new Health initiative of AYUSHMAN BHARAT and there is little need for the AYUSH practitioners to learn and prescribe allopathic medicines to be in the national mainstream. This pertains specifically to homoeopaths since their training, unlike in Ayurvedic and Unani educational systems, is not in Modern Pharmacology and Drug Therapeutics.

 

 

We would like to draw your attention to the following facts of Homoeopathic Education.

 

1.       BHMS course is full-fledged 4 ½ years course equivalent to MBBS (6 months internship) course and include all the subjects, duration and syllabus as MBBS course (Anatomy, physiology, pathology, medicine, surgery, gynecology Forensic medicine etc.).

2.       Over and above they learn Homoeopathic science which includes Homoeopathic Pharmacopeia, Auxiliary mode of treatment Management by physiotherapy, counselling, diet and nutrition, management of mental disorders etc.

3.       In Homoeopathic science and BHMS syllabus, the management of any acute and chronic clinical conditions and rational approach to emergencies are included and taught.

4.       Homeopathic pharmacopeia includes most effective and cheap medicines for any trauma/injury, burns, electric shocks and acute pains like headaches, fever, colic, etc .

 

Many renowned physicians, surgeons and gynecologists of allopathic science in India and abroad are using as well as teaching Homoeopathic system of medicine with full confidence and satisfaction. Like Dr M.L.Dhawale, Dr Kumar Dhawale, Dr S.R.Phatak, Dr K.N.Kasad and many more from India. Dr C.M Boger, Dr J.T.Kent, Dr Samuel Hahnemann the founder of Homoeopathy from Western country.

 

The students studying Homeopathic system of medicine are well exposed to OPD and IPD training equivalent to MBBS course. A well trained Homoeopath can manage all the emergencies of Midlevel primary health center with Homoeopathy. To repeat a homoeopathic physician can manage mid-level primary health centers.

 

However, given all of this, the BHMS course does not include modern pharmacopeia Homoeopathic doctors are not eligible to apply for the post at new program initiated by Ayushmann Bharat Health and wellness and Mid-level Primary Health Centre.

 

The inclusion of Modern Pharmacopeia will confuse students more since the therapeutics of Modern Medicine and Homoeopathy are fundamentally contradicting.

 

Our appeal to the authorities is:

1.       To introduce homeopathy system of medicine in the new programs initiated by Ayushmann Bharat Health and wellness and Mid-level Primary Health Centre, thereby encouraging homeopaths to practice the science. This initiative will be a hige boon to many homeopaths, aspiring to take it up as a career ahead. This will provide them job opportunities, to many of them who may not afford to start private practices. This will help in reducing the number of potentially good students from the system, due to lack of enough career options.

 

2.  We strongly appeal and request the authorities to not to include the  modern pharmacopeia in the homeopathic studies. 

We appeal for an alternative model for the resolution of concerned issues. By creating public health care training module in BHMS course and  employ BHMS directly for homeopathic care - sought by so many as per city newspaper surveys.
