Homeopathy The Ideal Cure
The witing room of Doctor Nik Omar'c clinic both at kelantan
and Kuala Lumpur are very busy. A schoolboy whose asthma cleared up within a day of taking a homeopathic remedy has come back
for some medicines to treat cold. A young woman is waiting for a pregnancy check up and to start a course of medicine for
an easy delivery. A man whose severe migraines vanished after being treated by Dr Nik six months ago, has dropped in to pick
up a repeat prescription.
For them, there is no question that homeopathy works. Like
many of Dr Nik's patients, they show little concerns about how or why homeopathy medication works. Only a few of the people
in his waiting room say that they have come because homeopathy uses natural substances and they have no side effect. More
stress the fact that it is cheap.
One elderly man, partially paralyzed and walking with a stick, syas that since his last
heart attack, there is nothing more that his doctor can do for him, homeopathy is his last hope.
Dr Nik Omar does not fit the stereotype of the didicated healer quietly pioneering his
art. He is too bullish. Both his colleagues and his rivals acknowledge his tremendous energy. All recognise that he, more
than anyone, is responsible for raising the alternative medicines's profile in Malaysia.
Dr Nik has written hundreds of articles about his works and local and oversea magazines
and newspaper. He give regular talks on alternative medicine in local TV stations especially on homeopathy and classical acupuncture.
In 19879 he set up his own version of French medical volunteer force, Medicine Sans
Frontiers. He called his, Homeopathic Doctors Without Barriers. He says that his mission in life is to bring homeopathic medicine
to every malaysian man , woman and child.
Dr Nik has training in both convenational and homeopathy. He studied both subjects for
five years at Pakistan Homeopathic Medical College & Trust Hospital, Lahore before going to Britain to train at London
School of Chiropody, University College Hospital, U.K.
Homeopathy has always been his primary interest. When he returned to Malaysia in 1977
it was a homeopathic practice, and not chiropody clinic, that he set up in his home town of Kota Bharu.
Today he is proud that after more than 30 years of struggels he managed to set up the
furst ever homeopathic college and Homeopathic medical centre at Kg Gelang Mas, Pasir Mas, Kelantan at the cost of RM
5 million with the compound of 11.5 acres of land. And perhaps it is the first and the biggest homeopathic complex in Asia.
