Hi I'm Alastair Hay and I help people get well and I help people stay well using homeopathic medicines and I’m known as homeopathical… like that.
I’d like to tell you about something that happened to me a week ago. It was someone who came to see me for their first follow up, having seen me four weeks before that, for their white blood cells, a particular sort of white blood cells in their body, had been falling and falling and falling to the point where it was getting… well, critical’s probably taking it too strongly but actually to the point where it's going to need some quite serious intervention from a medical perspective and they chose to seek my advice as a homeopath and we had a consultation, a face-to-face consultation and they told me what had been happening in their life, what it feels like to have their symptoms and I prescribed a homeopathic medicine, checked up with them via text message a couple of weeks after that and it seemed like they were getting better and I saw them last week and rather amazingly their white blood cells are going back to normal again just after four weeks from the first consultation.
Now, that isn't actually that unprecedented in my profession but what is, is that she said, look there's something I'm gonna have to tell you and actually I didn't take the homeopathic medicine. That's really quite interesting because as far as she was concerned our conversation was homeopathic and she said, you know how you can read a book and it can change your life but there's nothing in it, right? You couldn't analyse that from a chemical perspective and go, oh look there's this in this book. Nonetheless it can change your life and as far as she was concerned our conversation had been enough to impart some sort of change that means she wants to... I’m trying to think what she said.. I need to… I don't want to hold on to this anymore is what she said. It's like she heard what she was saying back at herself and went, I need to let this go and that's what she did and she's getting better.
Now, as far as I'm concerned when we learn about homeopathy there's three principles we learn first of all and the first thing we do is it's got to be safe. Now I would hope you think that someone actually not taking any medicine is going to be safe, in one sense but the second thing it does actually have to be effective and she has actually found that what she's done so far, has been effective, which is incredible but finally it does need to be permanent. We need to make a difference to someone's symptoms permanently and to be honest it's only five weeks since the first consultation and time will tell whether that is the case.
I've seen about 2,000 different clients over the space of 23 years in practice and this has actually only happened to me a couple of times where someone has got incredibly better in four weeks having not actually taken a homeopathic medicine but had the consultation. So that's what… one in a thousand, I can't quite work out what that would be in terms of percentages, is that 0.1%? Yeah, about point one people will get better just having a homeopathic conversation I'd love more of those clients because it to be able to make a difference by having a chat with someone, that is profound, it’s fabulous.
So if you see ill people today think, of Alastair Hay.
