In 1972, a Scottish surgeon stumbled upon a groundbreaking discovery while working at a charity hospital in Hong Kong, where widespread addiction to opium and heroin was endemic.
She soon claimed that it was possible to take any addict off their drug of addiction without the painful withdrawals of ‘cold turkey’, using only a low pulse electrical stimulator, which also seemed to remove any further cravings in a matter of days.
All this with absolutely no pharmacy required.
She called this new treatment: Neuro Electric Therapy (N.E.T.).
Dr. Meg Patterson (MBE) was decades ahead of her time. Clearly anticipating an increase in worldwide addiction, and the potential of her radical new treatment.
However, after years of struggling for official acceptance, the ruling medical establishment continued to reject N.E.T. and its claims. When Meg died in 2002, her dream of the wide and accessible use of N.E.T. died too.
