Enid Segall is President of the European Federation of Homeopathic Patients' Associations and Chairman of the Friends of the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine. She notes: "My first contact with homeopathy came when I went to work for the leading manufacturer of homeopathic medicines in the UK. This almost accidental introduction changed my health and the direction my life was to take. The company retained the services of a homeopathic doctor and his treatment changed health patterns I thought were a part of me and that I would have for life. That personal experience combined with talking to customers and hearing accounts of their use of homeopathy convinced me of its value. It became a subject of lifelong interest and study. Later in life, working at the helm of the British Homeopathic Association, I saw the need for patient advocates."
