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.

Letter 08

Dear Dr Saran Zeb
I have been suffering from hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes for nearly a decade. I have been treated by orthodox medication by my GP. These medicines, as we know well, have various side effects and can be the cause of further physical and psychological impairment. This ends up with a vicious circle of treating one physical condition with an orthodox medicine resulting in eruption of another adverse physical situation.
On the advice and recommendation of a friend named Mrs S. M. got in touch with you to receive treatment for my ailments of high blood pressure and diabetes. I received medication from you for approximately two months and have already noticed a remarkable improvement in my physical and psychological state of health.
I would like to continue with the homoeopathic medication in view of the improvements that I have benefited from but I am finding it hard to finance this treatment. I am a pensioner and it is not possible for me to continue to pay your fee and the cost of medicine.
I have learnt that the NHS is considering supporting the alternative method of medication. Having seen the benefit of homoeopathic treatment, I would not have any reservation to vote for such a scheme whole heartedly.
Yours sincerely
Mrs. M. B.
