Can i practice homeopathy without holding any certified degree?

Posted by:

Coughing, tooth ache and bronchial asthma
Age: 55
Smoking habit
I used to give homeopathy medicines to patients , I am a teacher ( after verifying the materia medica since nearly 10 years
My academic qualifications are M.A. Literature, M.Ed. and M.A. in distance education. I am not having any registered qualification in homeopathy but I am very much interested in homeopathy medicines and serving the needy poor. So many patients have been cured which satisfied me, can I continue with a homeopathy course? Please advice me.
Thank you.

I am not sure whether you want to know about some medicine for your asthma or you want to know if you could practice Homeopathy with that qualification. Since you are conversant with Homeopathy and Materia Medica, you must be aware that without individualization, it is difficult to prescribe remedies on such scant information.

Legally, you need to have a DHMS or BHMS degree to practice Homeopathy in India. Homeopathic medicines are not considered over-the-counter medicines in India. At the same time they are not strictly regulated either. There are thousands of people who use Homeopathy in their circles without any proper qualification. And so far I have not seen any law agency scorn over it. Still, if you wish to practice it properly, you must have a qualification and registration.
