More and more people are looking towards other options for treatment

Nighat M., Maple, Ontario

Since childhood, I wanted to be a doctor and followed my passion to the very end and became one in 1986 studying at the most prestigious Medical College in Pakistan, King Edward Medical College.

During my entire medical journey, I felt different from my other peers in one aspect and that was I never wanted to ridicule or look down upon other forms of treatment whether Naturopathic or homeopathic.

 I practiced for a few years then circumstances were such that I had to give up the profession I had worked very hard to attain. I spent the years looking after my children, though somewhere I missed being in hospital and treating people.

Over the years my stance concerning other forms of treatment was strengthened due to several personal experiences

First: one of my sons began showing signs of vitiligo around his eye, then on his finger and torso. I knew that there was no treatment in the allopathic module. We used to live in Abu Dhabi at the time and there were no homeopaths there so consulted a doctor who told us what I already knew: my son would have to live with the condition. A month later we went to Pakistan for vacation and we consulted a homeopath. He gave my son medicine we followed up for nearly 5-6 months and my son's skin was back to his usual color.

Second: My other son developed a wart on his finger (in those days he was swimming a lot in a communal swimming pool maybe that is where he contracted the skin lesion). Again doctors talked about cauterization and the fact that the warts could spread and recur! Again, a trip to Pakistan was in the works so went and consulted the homeopath. He gave my son medicine (oral and topical) with one piece of advice, not to fiddle with the wart. Within a month or so we could see the wart letting go of the skin and fell off. My son has neither had a recurrence nor spread of the condition. It has been more than 17 years for both of them

Nearly 16 years ago I was diagnosed with galled stones. I would wake up early morning with pain. The pain would subside after nearly 2-3 hours after taking painkillers and the rest of the day was spent trying to get back to normal this was happening every 3rd, 4th day. I decided on surgery but how to manage the pain in the intervening time. I did some research on my own and found that the homeopathic medicine Belladonna is very effective for renal and gall bladder pain. I got a vial of the medicine and any day I woke up with pain I would have a few drops under my tongue and the pain would be completely gone in less than 30 minutes. Magic!

Since all my children are all grown up, I  seem to have loads of time on my hand. Therefore, I have decided to take up the study of homeopathic medicine as my personal experiences have strengthened my belief that all forms of treatment have a place in providing treatment. Also, more and more people are looking towards other options for treatment whether homeopathic or naturopathic.
