What is BAMS?

BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery) is the minimum graduation degree you need to pass in order to practice as an Ayurvedacharya or an Ayurvedic Doctor in India.

The Under Graduate BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine & Surgery) degree course is 5½ years long(4½ year main course + 1 year Internship). Post theoretical education for 4½ years, there is a compulsory 1-year internship in order to be eligible to get a BAMS degree.

BAMS course (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) is equivalent to an MBBS degree in terms of the level of academic qualification. You will have the pre-nominal letters of ‘Dr.’ before your name after completing BAMS graduation.

More traditionally, you will be called ‘Vaidya’ inside the Ayurveda community for e.g. the renowned Padma Bhushan Vaidya Devendra Trigun from Delhi (he is a recipient of the 2nd highest civilian honor ‘Padma Bhushan’).

The 1-year internship (post theoretical education) is a practical clinical training in all the 6 specialized clinical areas of Ayurvedic Medicine as specified by CCIM (Central Council of Indian Medicine). So, in all, you will take 5 and ½ years to complete BAMS.

BAMS (Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery) is conducted only in Ayurvedic Medical Colleges throughout the country under IMCC Act, 1970. The curriculum and syllabus is uniform throughout the country.

AllAyurvedic Medical Colleges areaffiliated to universities and only undertake the admissions to operate after getting permission from Dept. of AYUSH, Union Govt. of India to start the course.

Central Council for Indian Medicine (CCIM) is the statutory regulatory body regulating the Ayurveda education at degree level (BAMS level). CCIM was constituted under IMCC Act 1970.

What is Ayurveda?

“AYURVEDA” can, theoretically, be thought to be made up of 2 words- Ayuh & Veda.

Ayuh literally means ‘life’ and Veda translates to‘knowledge or science’. So, ‘Ayurveda’can be perceived asthe ‘Science of life’. Profound knowledge of Sanskrit is an integral part of Ayurvedic sciences as the names of all therapeutic approaches as well as all Ayurvedic principles & philosophies are in Sanskrit. You will be taught relevant aspects of the language in your BAMS 1st year itself.

Ayurveda incorporates all aspects of life whether psychological, spiritual, physicalor social.

4 questions & allied life span issues that are elaborately and emphatically discussed in Ayurveda are:

  1. What is beneficial?
  2. What is harmful to life?
  3. What is a happy life?
  4. What is sorrowful life?

Ayurveda also believes the existence of soul before birth and after death too.

The Ayurvedic Viewpoint: Human Body’s Structure & Functions

Universe,like the human body,is made up of 5 basic elements collectively called ‘Pancha-Mahabhootama’. These are:

  • Aakash (Ether)
  • Agni(Fire)
  • Aapa (Water)
  • Vayu (Air)
  • Prithvi (Earth)

The 6thcompulsory component of life is Atma (life spirit). Life is believed to cease without Atma.

The human body is believed to be made up of Dhaatus(Body matrix),Doshas (Bio-humors), and Malas (excretable products).

Vata, Pitta and kapha, known as Tridoshas are physiological entities of the body. The tridoshas are responsible for carrying out all the functions of the body.

Dhatus are believed to be the structural entities of the body. These are Rakta (Blood cells), Rasa (Plasma), Meda (Fatty tissue), Asthi (Bony tissue), Mamsa (Muscular tissue), Majja (Bone marrow) and Shukra (Hormones).

Agni (Metabolic fire) carries out the whole metabolism of the body in thirteen different forms.

All bio-transformations within the body occur through Srotases which can be called ‘body channels’. These Srotases are the sites for action of agni.

How is diagnosis done in Ayurveda?

Ayurvedic diagnostic procedures are 2 pronged, like most traditional therapeutic measures:

  1. One is aimed to establish the state & type of pathology (diagnose the disease entity)
  2. Second to decide the mode of treatment to be applied

The former implies examination of the patient and making different investigations to diagnose the disease entity. Inspection, palpation, percussion (tapping body parts) and interrogation are the main modes of Ayurvedic investigations.

The second type of examination is to assess the strength and physical status of the individual. This step helps in planning the type of management accordingly.

For the second step, examination of Prakriti (Body constitution), Satva (Mental strength), Samhnan (physique), Saar (Tissue quality), Aaharshakti (diet intake capacity), Satamya (specific adaptability), Vyayaam shakti (exercise capacity) and Vaya (age) is done.

On the basis of this 2-step examination,a patient is diagnosedas having Heen Bal (low strength), Madhyam Bal (moderate strength) or Pravarbal (excellent strength).

What are the modes of Ayurvedic treatment?

There are8 divisions of Ayurvedic treatment modalities:

  1. Kayachikitsa (Internal medicine)
  2. Shalya (Surgery)
  3. Shalkya (Otorhinolaryngology and Opthalmology)
  4. KaumrBhritya (Paediatrics, Gynaecology and Obstetrics)
  5. Agad tantra (Toxicology)
  6. Rasayana (Gerentorology)
  7. Vajikaran (Aphrodisiacs)
  8. BhootVidya (Psychiatry)

The principles of Ayurvedic treatment are Shaman (palliative and conservative), Nidanparivarjan (avoidance of causative & precipitating factors of disease), Shodhan (purification), and PathyaVyavastha (do’s and don’ts of lifestyle).

For example: in the Shodhanprinciple, there are 5 elements:

  1. Virechana (medically induced laxation)
  2. Vasti (medicated enema)
  3. Vamana (medically induced emesis)
  4. Shirovirechana (administration of medicines through nose)
  5. Raktmokshan (Blood-letting)

These 5 elements are collectively known as Panchkarma. Panchkarma will be a compulsory subject for you in BAMS degree course.

BAMS Scope – Future Prospects

With all the following resolutions and the increase in the acceptance of Ayurveda as a primary healthcare option, the demand for trained & institutionally qualified professionals is expected to steadily rise as well as this would drive the liberalization of regional texts pertaining to this system to be integrated with recipient channels (needs of patients) the world over so it becomes applicable on an international context as well.

Ayurveda is believed to have enormous potential and can prove its efficacy if due patronage is given. This drugless system is more effective in treating chronic cases of rheumatic problems, anemia, diarrhea, duodenal ulcers, anorexia, stomatitis, parkinsonism, sciatica, bronchial asthma, hypertension, rhinitis, sinusitis, spondylosis, psoriasis, diabetes, obesity, anxiety etc. where other systems have failed to provide required relief. In fact, Ayurveda sciences are time tested.

Analysts have estimated that the Ayurvedic Food Market will register a compound annual growth rate(CAGR) of almost 14% by 2022.The number of online transactions and the average amount of money spent online by a buyer are on the rise globally.

The global Alternative and Complementary Medicine market (ACM) is forecasted to reach an improved size of USD 296.3 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 19.9%.

High demand for alternative medicine across the globe and expanding applications of traditional medicine are the 2 key driving factors of the market.

China and India are the key contributors to the alternative medicine market offering significant momentum to revenue generation. Although, Europe is anticipated to witness the highest market share over the period of 2020-2027.

Additionally, an increase in the number of licensed and trained physiciansis set to boost patient preference toward traditional medicine too!

Moreover, there is a rising pool of scientists working in ACM disciplines at established universities across U.S., Europe, and Asia Pacific who are focusing on Parkinson’s disease, cancer, and diabetes.

The dream of ‘Health for ALL’ (movement undertaken by the WHO) can be well realized in comparatively a shorter period of time if such traditional therapeutic approachesare given due importance and popularized globally. Also, these systems can cut down the increasing expenses in health care delivery immensely across the globe.

To achieve the objective of Health for ALL, the Govt. of India is resolved to create awareness among people about the efficacy of the AYUSH Systems through various media channels including the production of audio-visual educational material and promotion of the International Day of Yoga.

The Government in the new budget for the Min. of AYUSH has also mentioned its determination to foster international interaction and market development by establishing academic chairs in foreign countries.

An outlay of Rs 1,939.76 crore has been earmarked for AYUSH delivery systems, which is an increase of 14.59% over the last fiscal.

AYUSH Healthcare Super Specialty Day care Hospitals will be established to promote medical tourism in this sector. The cultivation of medicinal plants is to be integrated with the farming system and the institutional capacities of hospitals, dispensaries & educational institutions along with the drugs testing framework will also be strengthened.

With the initiative of National Medicinal Plants Board, 32 State Medicinal Plants Boards in 27 States and 5 Union Territories have been constituted for manufacturing of medicinal plants for domestic consumption as well as export.

The utilization of Ayurvedacharyas for community health programs is also being encouraged by the Min. of AYUSH in India.
