Your friend's mother is suffering from severe health problems. You have wide knowledge on the efficacy of herbs and vitamins as opposed to conventional western medication. write a letter to your friend explaining the benefits of traditional herbs and vitamins for her mother's health.

 

Dear Shirley

Thank you for your letter which I received two days ago. I am glad you actually bothered to send me a "snail mail" instead of the more popular electronic mail !

I am very sorry to hear of your mother's condition. You mentioned that she is recovering from chemotherapy as a result of breast cancer. it must have been a very traumatic experience for her as well as all of you. I know it is difficult to care for an immediate family member especially one that has suffered tremendously. Chemotherapy can be very debilitating and I am sure she has lost a lot of hair and not to mention regular vomiting and weakness. I feel honored that you wrote me for advice.

The efficacy of herbs and vitamins has long been established both by traditional and modern doctors. The benefits of these are tremendous especially for those who are recovering from a serious disease. even before the advent of modern medicine and surgery, humans have been using traditional medicine such as herbs and roots to treat sickness and diseases as well as cuts and bruises. As you know my sister is a homoeopathist and hence, my extensive knowledge of this subject matter ! In fact, many patients and even pet owners consult my sister for advice on herbs and traditional therapies.

Western medication has side effects and is ineffective for certain people. If you had consulted me about your mother's condition before, I would have advised you not to proceed with chemotherapy. the latter's side effects are known and it can be very damaging for an elderly person like your mother. However, all is not lost.

My advice for you is to approach pharmacist and traditional healers to identify appropriate herbs and vitamins for your mother. explain to them your mother's health condition and status and do not forget to mention that she had just undergone chemotherapy for cancer. However, I would strongly recommend that you consult your mother's oncologist first before buying the herbs and medicine. the doctor would have prescribed some western medication for her and there can be adverse side effects if you mix traditional medicine with modern pills. Nevertheless, if you feel the doctor's medicine is ineffective, I suggest you stop the medication and try the herbs and vitamins instead.

Please also feel free to contact my sister for advice. Her patients speak very highly of her and many have told me how homeopathy has produced better results for them compared to western medicine.

I have to leave you here now. Do write or call me if you need further advice. send my warmest regard to your mother and the rest of the family. take good care of yourself.

Your caring friend.

Michael
