Indian Board of Alternative Medicine - Admissions now open for the following set of alternative medicine programs for the academic session 2010-2011.
Online, April 15, 2010 (Newswire.com) - Indian Board of Alternative Medicines (Internationally Recognized Legally Constituted Largest Institution) is one of the largest open international educational academies and a premier institution in the field of alternative / complementary medicine and health promotion duly incorporated under Act XXVI of 1961 (Regd. No. S/68765 of 1991-1992) of the Government of West Bengal based on the Central Government Act XXI of 1860 and the Literary and Scientific Institutions Act of 1854.
True to its motto, "Indigenous Roots, Global Pursuits", the Board has brought alternative medicines to the attention of the masses and trained thousands of students in India and abroad through its various courses in the different disciplines of alternative medicines such as acupressure, acupuncture, aromatherapy, electro homeopathy, biochemical medicine, reiki, etc. to further facilitate the study of alternative medicines and provide a high standard of educational programs.
It would not be an exaggeration to state that despite the consistent advance of western medicine, affordable and effective health care is still beyond the reach of vast sections of the world's population, particularly those residing in the developing world. A few decades ago, it was generally assumed by the scientific community that medicinal plants, homeopathic doses, acupuncture needles, yoga etc. could be safely relegated to no more than a footnote of medical history. But this assumption has indeed turned out to be a very premature one. During the past two decades, the upsurge in herbology, acupressure, acupuncture and yoga etc. across the world has been phenomenal. This renewed interest has generated an international awareness on the richness and importance of the subject. It is to cater to this interest and the need for trained practitioners in the field of alternative medicines that the Indian Board of Alternative Medicines offers a variety of multi level courses in alternative medicines.
The Indian Board of Alternative Medicines is a leading educational academy, which offers a high standard of academic programs via means of regular classes and distance education, in the various alternative therapies. With a past and present student strength of around 80,000, the Institute's courses - diploma, bachelor certification and post graduate on acupressure, acupuncture, aroma therapy, biochemic medicines, indo allopathic, electro homeopathy, naturopathy, oriental medicine, yoga, reiki etc. are pursued in increasing number by students from all over the country and worldwide.
