Regular full time medical training for a minimum period of 5 1/2 years (BHMS) is absolutely necessary for becoming qualified to practice homeopathy  in India as it gives a complete understanding not only about the structure and functioning of the human body but also a thorough understanding of the homeopathic philosophy and its practical utilization while treating diseased persons. And to do M.D. in homeopathy further, you have to spend three more years after BHMS
It is astonishing, then, that despite such rigorous training, homoeopathy persists.  The training course probably skips over the inconvenient bits of science like chemistry and physics – good examples are Avogadro’s Limit, Energy concepts and Statistical Mechanics – whenever these should come into conflict with homoeopathy.  Having experienced homoeopathy students myself, it also helps to start the course already believing in this rubbish because the course goes a long way towards further cementing preconceived notions instead of teaching students to think.

homeopathics do NOT work like regular drugs and prescriptions you get from your doctor. you could swallow a WHOLE bottle and it would not hurt you. usually taking LESS of a homeopathic means will work better. from USA practitioner

So taking none at all works best, right?
