Homeopathy is more than a job to me, it's not just what I do but it's what I am. Generally speaking, there are two kinds of patients and practitioners of homeopathy. The first and largest consists of those who turned to homeopathy after they were dissatisfied with allopathic medicine, it's side effects and it's lack of permanent and beneficial effect. Then there are those who have been raised with a more natural lifestyle, some of whom have never had any allopathic medical treatments at all.
I belong to the first group, having for years suffered from a recurring medical problem that conventional medicine could only suppress and aggravate. In despair and after a conversation with a passenger in my cab I decided to visit a homeopath and was amazed at the results. These kind of seemingly miraculous cures are often dismissed by detractors as a placebo effect.; I will discuss the placebo effect further in other blogs but I will just say that I was hardly a candidate, having been so sceptical that I was thinking of delaying my cheque payment until I'd seen any results!
After being completely cured I felt like I had to investigate homeopathy further and read Dr Andrew Lockie’s Complete Guide to Homeopathy. By now I was intrigued. nay more than that I was hooked! In my first year at college I not only became more and more absorbed but also in awe of the power of remedies and their power to cure. I read and heard of the genius of the first homeopath, Samuel Hahnemann and his absolute dedication to this newly discovered science.
Homeopathy has cured millions of patients worldwide and is currently used by 500 million people globally. It is not only safe but much more gentle on the body than conventional allopathic medicine. That is not to say that allopathic medicine does not have its place, it most certainly does. I marvelled at the skill of the surgeon who removed a fibroid from a patient’s uterus without damaging the organ and I would certainly rush to hospital if I had a broken limb. I would not however need to take any anti inflammatories and would be able to get my bone to knit much faster with a homeopathic remedy.
