I once went to a homeopath for relieving my blocked sinuses. In those days I had nasal sprays which I used every ten minutes to clear my blocked nose, although the manufacturers had warned that they should not be used more than once a day. I had always been skeptical about homeopathy, until I saw an old relative being cured of an excruciating pain in the back of his neck by a homeopath.
So I had gone to this homeopath (a retired government servant) and explained how badly I was suffering owing to sinusitis. He immediately told me to stop using the nasal sprays, which I did. I faithfully took the pills he gave me for a month, after which I noticed that not only my sinusitis had disappeared, I was feeling much younger than I had when I was sixteen. So I asked him discreetly if there was something in his medicine which turned a forty-year old man into a sixteen-year old boy. He smiled and said, “The pills are working. You are being cured”.
I reminded him that I wanted to be cured of sinusitis, but what he was doing would turn me into a sex maniac! He was annoyed. “You are complaining because you feel young? I have many satisfied patients because they can do what real men can do!” This was enough. I stopped going to him.
Later a medical store owner in the locality told me that the homeopath was a blackmailer who had made many men dependent on him by first making them very powerful, and then turning them into impotent wrecks, before making them normal again. But I never understood why the man had to do such things. He could have made millions if he’d not been so greedy. He died a pauper.
