From Vikram S., Bangalore, India.
Becoming a doctor was my childhood dream. Therefore, after completing my school education, I cracked the entrance exams for MBBS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of surgery), BOS (Bachelor of Dental surgery), BHMS (Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery) as well as B. Tech in Biotechnology. My father was a homeopath and for that reason there has always been in existence a culture of homeopathy at home. Homeopathy cured my chronic sinusitis completely. It again came to my rescue when I severely sprained a ligament once while performing a stunt. In such ways homeopathy has always acted as a sword to protect my entire family by defeating ailments such as tonsillitis, food poisoning, indigestion, pains and aches, tetanus , emotional trauma etc. My siblings and I have literally been brought up on homeopathy. Apart from that, I remember the queues of patients at my father's clinic every day , and the happy faces of those who got cured of serious disorders. As such, I have always been awestruck by the way homeopathy works its magic through the principle of similia similibus curantur . BHMS was thus the most natural path for me. However, when it came to opting for a course, due to certain reasons that seemed rational at that time, I got myself enrolled in the B. Tech Biotech program.
After completion of the 4 year long course, I got a job as a Research Executive in Unilever R&D, Bangalore. I quit the job after three years for familial reasons. Not just that; the satisfaction that I was seeking from my profession was missing from there anyway. I wanted a meaningful, nourishing and fulfilling profession that would benefit the society and bring peace to me.
Unbelievably, the opportunity that I let go of many years ago seems to have walked back into my life in the form of my Canadian Permanent Residence Visa, which I consider to be a permit to apply for CCHM's diploma course in Homeopathy. Through this course, I would be able to realize my childhood dream and follow my passion with full fervour, devotion and love. Moreover, I would receive the satisfaction of doing something useful, purposeful and meaningful for humanity.
What makes CCHM so special is that, firstly, it has no upper age limit criterion for admission. Secondly, it allows students to pursue the course even while they are employed full-time in any other organization. Thirdly, CCHM is the topmost homeopathic college in the whole of North America and offers the most comprehensive education in the region. It has even been approved by the College of Homeopaths of Ontario and accredited by ACHENA, both of which are benchmarks of high quality education. Lastly, I am sure that the In-class program would help me to associate with other students of homeopathy and thus build a circle of likeminded people.
Therefore, childhood dreams, inspiration from father, association with a culture of homeopathy, deep interest and aptitude in biology/medicine, the love for and belief in homeopathy, and the availability of a new opportunity, are the various factors that have caused me to reach the decision to become a homeopath and apply for this course. I yearn to learn homeopathy and eagerly look forward to be seated in the In-Class Diploma course lectures soon.
