BAMS belongs to Ayurveda and BHMS is concerned with homeopathy.

Healing Time of Ayurveda & homeopathy

The healing time depends on the individualized skills attained in any system. In Ayurveda takes less time to treat a person, but sometimes, it takes more time as compared to allopathic medicines.

Homeopathy takes more time to experiment on a patient for the medicines that the patient actually need. However, if you gain experience in Homeopathy or work under any experienced homeopath, you can observe there is no actual difference in healing time of treatment in any system including homeopathy. However, some systems perform better in specific conditions and other performs better in some other diseases. For instance, modern medicines are better in emergency care, but fails in chronic ailments.

Ayurveda, homeopathy and allopathy all take the same time to treat the patients, but the condition is the understanding of the deep concepts of the system to which you belong.

Both sciences are very difficult to memorize. You may have an advantage in homeopathy than ayurveda. That homeopathy is world recognized and homeopaths have developed many types of software from which you can take help, but ayurveda is recognized only in India and Sri Lanka and has no trusted software for ayurvedic medicine.

Income of Ayurveda & homeopathy

The major disadvantage of Ayurveda is that its medicines are too expensive and a little profit and sometimes have similar healing time as in homeopathy. Your margin in these medicines will be very less.

On the contrary, homeopathic medicines are very affordable and profit is also many times more than allopathic and ayurvedic medicines.

Social respect

You may get similar social respect as modern medicine doctor gains in the society. The society never compares doctors as per their degrees, people compare as per results of your treatment and your smiling face.

Self Satisfaction

Self-satisfaction will always remain a question throughout the whole life if you do BAMS or BHMS because of that you are not selected for MBBS.

However, self-satisfaction is a topic of personal mentality of an individual, you can also find a very miserable and poor person, but with a complete gratification and self-satisfaction. Sometimes, you cannot believe it. This world has many exceptions.

We hope now you have a clearer picture about the BHMS course. However, the aforesaid points in BHMS Vs BAMS are Writer’s views and based on his own experience. Your experience may be different from that, so we suggest follow your heart and still feel confused and can’t figure out about the right course fit for you, and then feel free to speak to career experts.
