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 Sir/Madam,

I have been consulting Dr Zeb for over 2 years now. Before I went to see him I had many problems regarding high blood pressure and severe back problems. However before I did begin to consult Dr Zeb I did see my local GP, but all I was given were either painkillers or creams for my troubles. These did not help me as my problems continued to persist with even greater force. I turned to Homeopathy as a last resort not knowing what to expect.

However I can confidently say that turning to Homeopathy was one of the best decisions I have made. I was given tablets to lower my blood pressure and also given oils in which were applied to my back. I was astounded when my back became less painful and as a consequence I was much happier. In time my blood pressure had dramatically lowered and my back began to hurt less frequently and even if it did hurt, it was not as severe as before the treatment.

I am past the half way stage in my life. I strongly believe that if I did not seek help from homeopathy I would have had an increased chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the years to come. Even though I have luckily not encountered those problems yet I believe that homeopathy has prevented or prolonged that from happening to me. I do believe that prevention is much better than cure. Homeopathy in a way has regenerated my life, as I was always, in the past, living with discomfort day in day out. Being successfully treated meant for me that I could live a much more liberating life, without being held back by my distressing conditions, so that I could enjoy my life for even longer, by the NHS, a service in which I had faith in but has disappointed me in the past years.

Although Homeopathy has helped me so much both mentally and physically, it has not been cheap. I have been able to afford the treatments unlike other people that haven’t, so consequently they have not benefited fully from the advantages of Homeopathy as strongly as I have. Over the past years I must say that my treatment has cost more than a thousand pounds. Although I do believe that the prices are far too high, I cannot put a price on my health. I would be willing to pay this much and subsequently have done just to live a happy and healthy life, something that I should have been able to do anyway, regardless if I had one pound or a thousand pounds.

However I do understand that the NHS is considering supporting and introducing Homeopathic medicines into its service. I believe that by doing this the NHS will be moving forward in a positive way. By using homeopathy as an alternative way of treating illnesses and conditions, I believe that people will benefit greatly from the broad range of natural medicines, which have proved to successfully cure conditions and illnesses naturally, without the need for various different chemicals.

I believe that everybody should be able to live a pleasing, discomfort free-life and if a Homeopathic medicine can be used to treat a patient, then why should it not be used? I understand that some people are unable to afford the treatment as mentioned before but surely everybody deserves to have a chance of being able to live without health relates problems. However I also understand that Homeopathic also deals with people with emotional issues. The only emotional issues I have heard the NHS deal with are depression. I have so much faith in Homeopathy and urge the NHS to consider and eventually introduce these medicines into its system. It would be a breakthrough for the public to feel the full benefits of Homeopathy and I am positive that my faith along with many other people, would begin grow and eventually be restored confidently back into the NHS by doing so.

Kind Regards, Mrs. K K
