Indian Homoeopathy Medical Association(IHMA) National President Dr T K Hareendranath, requested Central Council of Homoeopathy (CCH) not to start short term allopathy courses for homoeopathy practitioners.
Short –term course for Homoeopathic doctors to practice modern medicine- apprehensions reg;
The proposal of Maharshtra government to enable homoeopaths to practice modern medicine by giving them a short-term course in allopathy is deeply disturbing. Though the decision is to extend the reach of medical aid to deserving common public in rural areas, in the long run, it will only help in degradation of homoeopathic system of medicine as well as substandard medical services to the public.
The history of homoeopathy in western countries and Europe clearly shows how they became almost extinct by unscientific integration with other systems of medicine. One can also see that the entire project is the brain child of some vested interests with educational institutions whose only agenda is personal financial gains.
So IHMA strongly protest the idea of this unscientific short- term course to homeopaths to practice allopathy and thereby paving the way for diluting the quality of homoeopathic system of medicine.
