of Dr Meg
Searching for the
SEARCHING FOR THE IMPOSIBLE
The youngest child of five, her home was Aberdeen, north-eastern Scotland. Meg was educated at the Central School (now Aberdeen Academy), and was Dux or the leading scholar for four years. Aged 16 she was accepted at Aberdeen University to read Medicine and graduated MB, ChB when she was 21, one of the youngest doctors to do so. Having won First Prize in Surgery she went to work in the Aberdeen Sick Children's Hospital. During the war years, she became a House Surgeon at the Maternity Hospital before going to St. James Hospital in Balham, London, where she worked under renowned Norman Tanner before applying for her FRCS (Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons) in Edinburgh University.
An unexpected meeting—some would call it chance, but Meg's faith taught her otherwise, led her to a medical post at Ludhiana Christian Medical College in India. Her marriage to George Patterson, a journalist already known for his work in Tibet, at first seemed impossible because of their irreconcilable vocations, but they knew that God would weave their separate lives into His purposes, so they went ahead into an unknown future. Work in India, Nepal, and Hong Kong led Meg away from surgery and into the development of a unique treatment for chemical dependency.
George and Meg have featured in national and international media as a result of their treatment involving musicians such as Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, and Pete Townshend. Meg's autobiography Searching for the Impossible (previously titled Dr Meg) is largely an account of her lifelong struggle to have her revolutionary treatment recognised and financially supported in Britain and the United States. It is an exciting, often humorous and always inspiring story of unswerving commitment and perseverance, despite frankly admitted periods of despondency.
This tells the story of NET - a revolutionary cure for drug additions. In this remarkable book Dr. Meg Patterson writes of the background to her discovery, her painstaking research and the extraordinary results, which at last offer real hope for addicts. The treatment is fascinating and effective. Using a tiny electrical current tuned to various frequencies, NET (NeuroElectric Therapy) stimulates the production of several body chemicals—including endorphins, the body's natural opiates—enabling addicts to any drug to detoxify with only minimal withdrawal symptoms. Writing from her wide experience with addicts in Asia and the West, Dr. Patterson also stresses the crucial importance of solving the basic psycho-spiritual problems leading to addiction.
