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 treated by Dr Saran Zeb for over two years now. Over that period I have been given various homeopathic medicines to help me physically and they have also helped me emotionally. I first went to Saran as I have been suffering from Diabetes over several years. My sugar levels were not consistent or stable. I was very dependent on medication, which did not control my sugar levels. This is led to much upset and stress as I seemed to be doing all that I had been asked to do by my GP.
I did attend GP appointments on several occasions over a period of time with hope that variations in my medication would help. I was prescribed several tablets over many years and advised to take insulin if the diabetes did not come under control. However this was seen as a life changing decision for me and I did not want to become dependent on injections for years to come. I therefore refused this option and was determined to find an alternative solution.
I was recommended to see Dr Zeb to see if a more permanent solution could be found. After the treatment I have been having, my situation has greatly improved. My intake of tablets has now been reduced. My sugar levels are much more controlled now. I am able to get on with my life knowing I am in control and the best part is my fear of becoming dependant on insulin is no longer an issue. All of this has been a result of the homeopathic treatment I have received and I have not had to rely on more prescribed medication.
Of course I have had to fund my treatment on a private basis. I do however understand that the NHS is considering supporting homeopathy as an alternative method of medicine. I believe strongly that the NHS should support such treatment. If such a decision was made it would have a great impact on the lives of many. They would benefit in life just as I have. Many are currently disadvantaged in not having this treatment available to them as a result of lack of funds. This is a very unfair system. If homeopathic treatments were more widely available then less people would be dependent on extreme medication. Many also suffer severe side effects from medication they are prescribed. This problem could be resolved by the use of more effective and less harsh medication offered by homeopaths.
I am in full support of the NHS providing alternative treatments such as homeopathy as a result of my personal experience. I hope that this becomes a reality in the near future.

Mrs. S. D. S.
