"After years of being passed around ..."

About: The Royal London Hospital For Integrated Medicine

(as the patient),

What I liked

After years of being passed around from one hospital to another, numerous tests done on most parts of the body including heart and brain which I said, there was nothing wrong with. Even been prescribed tranquilisers at one point. One doctor giving an indication of what might be wrong but saying you won't get any help with it, go home and put up with it, and another doctor writing to my GP saying I needed mental care as everything was in my mind, I knew different. Having found RLHH myself, I asked my GP for one last try and if this did not work, I would relunctantly go down the path of mental care.

On arrival at this wonderful hospital in May 2005, when you where at Greenwell St, Great Ormond St undergoing renovation, I met my new doctor for the first time, having a lengthy discussion about my health and life in general, they wer able to confirm to me what one previous doctor had said, but would'nt help me with and that I was suffering from Multi-Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome and that I was not going insane.

From that day forward my life was about to change, at last someone believed me, suffering with chemicals and pollutants, cigarette smoke, paints, additives in food, toiletries and other things, too many to mention, my life was one big mess. but thanks to my wonderful doctor at RLHH and the care and kindness of all staff there. Three and a half years of treatment every few months, I am now a different person, bags of energy, grow all my own organic fruit & vegetables, use only organic toiletries etc; I'm a different person, I don't ail anything anymore, feel fantastic and without being vein look good too, no comparison to the wreck I used to be.

Enjoying life and will be for ever grateful and thankful to my wonderful doctor and all at this marvelous hospital.

What could be improved

No improvement is necessary, only that this hospital should be allowed to carry on and grow and have even more doctors learning there to carry on this wonderful work and that all GP's should have a better understanding of homeopathy and should be allowed to refer patients and also show leaflets in waiting rooms about homeopathy as my own GP shook my hand and said he had learned an awful lot from me visiting and him communicating with my RLHH doctor. If I had this service initially, it would have safed the NHS alot of money on test I knew were not necessary.

Anything else?

I have noticed in the recent news that scientists are saying that there is no evidence to support homeopathy treatment and that funding should be cut. I believe that discussion with all of your patients would reveal a different story. I, myself am that evidence

Thankyou once again.
