But before we delve further and learn more about the incident let us take a look at the popularity of alternative medicine both as a holistic treatment concept and as the most sought after career graph. There is no doubt that the overall popularity of holistic medicines over the conventional method has led to more and more students in pursuing alternative medicine studies and career.
Alternative Medical Systems – the system has been typically "combination of theory and practice" and mostly the alternative medicine types are non-Western origin and constitutes traditional homoeopathy, Chinese medicine, Tibetan medicine, Ayurveda, Native American healing practices, acupuncture and naturopathic medicine.
On the other hand the Orthodox Medicine is all about a highly restricted but balanced diet.
The Alternative therapies are like an endless pick-and-mix banquet from nature. Orthodox Medicine has typically evolved from its founding principles and treats the body (person) in isolated parts. On the contrary, the Alternative medicine has evolved from nature and has the power and knowledge to fix an innate (natural) system by not interfering in its normal homeostasis and by using only natural remedies.
Possibly this is why more and more students are actually looking into the career of alternative medicine.
The Indian Board of Alternative Medicine is not fake and the Board is here to advance the scientific study and professional practice of alternative medicines and to enhance the contribution of alternative medicines by encouraging its development by promoting research and setting high standards of professional ethics, competence, conduct, education, qualification and achievement amongst practitioners promoting the dissemination of knowledge and thought about alternative medicines through training, educational courses, refresher courses, meetings, lectures, seminars, workshops, reports, papers, discussions, excursions, debates, exhibitions, camps, publications, professional contacts etc. with wide interest and inquiry into alternative medicines and all related areas of knowledge and practice.
However only recently some students indicted as part of a fake ID card ring run out of the Indian Board of Alternative Medicine campus. They were convicted and penalized for manufacturing fake identification. The students looked for a shortcut to success but little did they understand that fake id has to face the real consequences .
