SITE INFO & POLICIES

 

 

COMPLEMENTARY THERAPIES

This site aims to promote the use of complementary therapies. By this we mean those therapies which complement modern medical practice, rather than those therapies which offer an alternative to modern medical practice. Professor Edzard Ernst, who holds a Chair in Complementary and Alternative Medicine at Exeter University, provided the following definition in a 1995 letter to the British Journal of General Practice:

 "Complementary medicine is diagnosis, treatment and/or prevention which complements mainstream medicine by contributing to a common whole, by satisfying a demand not met by orthodoxy or by diversifying the conceptual frameworks of medicine".

We make no judgment whatsoever on the efficacy or otherwise of any alternative therapy. However, we will only list information on those therapies that conform to our listing policy.

LISTING POLICY

We fully subscribe to and rely on evidence-based practice. We will only list and provide information on those complementary therapies which use evidence-based practice, and for which there is a nationally recognised professional body where membership and professional registration is only attainable following a recognised course of study, and appropriate practical training. We will only list the practice details of therapists who are registered with their professional body and who hold appropriate professional indemnity insurance.

HEALTH ON THE NET FOUNDATION CODE OF CONDUCT (HONCode)

The Health on the Net Foundation Code of Conduct (HONcode) for medical and health Web sites addresses one of the Internet's main healthcare issues: the reliability and credibility of information.
