Homoeopathy is the medical practice of treating like with like. That is to say, treating an illness with a substance which when taken by a healthy person produces symptoms similar to those displayed by the person who is ill.

Dear Dr Zeb,
I was diagnosed with Diabetes recently in October 2005. I did not wish to use the normal treatment/medicine via my GP, as I believed that it would not cure my condition but cause more side effects than benefits.
I was recommended to use homeopathic medicine and to your clinic by people known to me. Hence, I tried your medicine for some three months and realised the benefits very soon thereafter. My condition is well controlled and I have not experienced any side effects from the medication.
I would like to continue with this treatment and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone who needs it. I think it is unfair that I have to pay for it and feel that it should be provided via the NHS, as the results are much better than the treatment currently provided via the NHS.
Yours sincerely,
Mrs B. K. R.
