"I was diagnosed with nasal cancer ..."

About: The Royal London Hospital For Integrated Medicine

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was diagnosed with nasal cancer at the age of 37 and my doctors medical knowledge of cancer, coupled with her understanding of what it and conventional treatment do to you, both physically and mentally have contributed in a major way to my recovery and I have her and her team to thank. They treat you with kindness, understanding and individuality and have effectively helped me both physically and mentally. I am completely convinced that some of the homeopathic medicine, plus acupuncture have made a difference to physical symptoms. Emotionally the doctors have helped, enabled and or empowered me to deal with the enormous emotional effects of a cancer diagnosis and the ongoing physical side effects. Their time may cost the NHS, but I am convinced that it has also saved the NHS a great deal more by keeping me well enough to not need more, far more expensive, conventional treatment. It is a very shortsighted measure both financially and medically to take homeopathic treatments, particularly for cancer off the NHS
