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.

25th July 2000.

I suffer with depression and as conventional medicine did not seem to be helping me, I decided to try homeopathy. I have been attending recently at Natural Remedy Centre and have been seeing their Homeopathic Doctor, Dr Saran Zeb.
I am pleased to say that my health has improved considerably since my visits to him, and I feel very comfortable talking to him and am very happy with the service I receive there.
I feel it is a great pity that I cannot obtain this treatment from Dr Zeb on the NHS, as I am currently living on State Benefits, due to ill health and find it is a great struggle to pay for this treatment out of my benefit payments.
Would it not be possible for people in a similar situation to myself, and indeed, people who are not living on Benefits, but would like the choice of conventional or alternative medicine, to receive such treatment on the NHS.
Yours faithfully
