But the bulk of the cases coming to a homoeopath consists (I'd be happier with consist) mostly of chronic cases of long standing (I'd delete long standing- what are chronic cases?) ; cases that have defied the skills of several (I'd say many) specialists; cases that have been over-drugged and spoiled (can you spoil a case?). Most of the patients visiting a homoeopath bring (or take with them?? either) files of reports and prescriptions. They say they have suffered for years. They have “tried” every doctor or specialist they have been referred to.
