The word Ayurveda consists of two 2 words: AYUR plus VED, which means life and knowledge respectively. Ayurvedic medicines have a great capability to heal even chronic diseases.
Ayurvedic medications and surgery are becoming more and more popular nowadays. People are getting more interested in ayurvedic therapy, medicines and surgery mainly because it does not have any side effects.
The more demand from the people for ayurvedic therapies is leading to people and students in getting to know more about this area and more students are opting for the related degrees. One such degree is Bachelor of Ayurvedic Medicine and Surgery (BAMS).
Earlier people who opted for BAMS didn’t have much choice on the career options that they could choose. However, times have changed. Now the students have a wide array of choice for their career & courses after BAMS.
