Homeopathy and healthcare


Sir, – Liam Murray (March 6th) says homeopathy is effective because it provides hope, positive thinking and reassurance to the patient.

This is of no benefit to a child screaming with constipation, reflux and painful dentition. Practising homeopathy for 30 years, I can tell you such children have been greatly helped with homeopathic medicine and very quickly. I have continued in business because the parents of such children see the benefits and have been happy to send me new clients. – Yours, etc,


Homeopath, Castlebar,
