Over the last couple of decades, homeopathy has really come up and become a popular way of dealing with everyday ailments and diseases. Perhaps a major reason is that most people are not scared of the side effects that allopathy often leads to. Even a small pill for a headache has potentially devastating side effects. In the same vein, homeopathy offers a prolonged treatment period, but a promise of no side effects. The homeopathy doctors understand your symptoms and offer you treatment options that can be really helpful to you.
Unfortunately, there is no conclusive evidence to prove homeopathy is better than any of the traditional medicines or allopathy. Still, the faith in homeopathy is so strong that millions of people across the world prefer it over other medical alternatives. Whether or not homeopathy and homeopathic doctors are better than others, is a difficult question to answer. That homeopathy is healthier, is but an assumption. The doctors of this science therefore cannot be really termed as better unless there is any empirical data to suggest so.
Allopathy continues to remain the largest medical alternative used by people from all over the world. The doctors undergo rigorous training to get their degrees and their licenses to practice medicine. The framework of homeopathy is not as rigorous. In India, the colleges imparting education for homeopathy are not as competitive as those that train allopathic doctors. However, since homeopathy is becoming a discipline in its own right, and many people have shown faith in it, a lot of qualified doctors have also started undertaking education in the discipline of homeopathy. This helps them become qualified homeopathic doctors. The biggest question related to homeopathy is whether it is safe and effective or not and how homeopathy hospitals handle the patients. Needless to say, homeopathic doctors are also encompassed in this ever raging debate. If you have an ailment and you want to get homeopathic treatment for it, it is best to wait for the results. Homeopathic treatments usually take longer to show results than traditional or allopathic medicine. In case, however, your health is failing despite the homeopathic treatment, you should resort to other treatments.
One of the chief reasons why homeopathy is considered better than other treatments is that it does not have any side effects. Even long term use of homeopathy is unlikely to hsve any harmful effects. It is also considered a healthier alternative because it focuses on the problem, instead of the symptoms as some of the other medical disciplines tend to do. Then again, since the effects of homeopathy and its ability to cure diseases and ailments has not really been studied and researched as much, it may be impossible to authoritatively say whether homeopathy and consequently homeopathic doctors are better than the rest.
Each country has a different set of rules governing those who can practice homeopathy. A homeopathic doctor is very much a medical professional and though in our country the course may not be as rigorous as some of the others, a medical practitioner practicing homeopathy is still a doctor. Like in any other stream of medicine, homeopathy also has its share of good, average and bad doctors.
