  • DEAR SIR
    TIPS ARE THE BEST CONTRIBUTIONS EVERY MONTH.EVERY ONE CAN NOT READ EVERY BOOK AND NEW EXPERIENCES MADE IN HOMEOPATHIC PRACTICE GET LOST IF NOT SHARED WITH OTHERS. DR P. B. STATED TO HAVE CURED MILLIONS OF PATIENTS, BUT HE HAS NEVER SHARED HIS EXPERIENCES WITH ANY ONE. I CONTACTED DR P CLINIC IN KOLKATA AND GOT ABSOLUTELY NEGATIVE ANSWERS. HAD MASTERS NEVER SHARED THEIR EXPERIENCES THROUGH THEIR BOOKS OR OTHERWISE, THE HOMEOPATHY WOULD HAVE LOST ITS TRUST WORTHYNESS
    DR SHEKHAR
