The approaches we use in life threatening illness do not have as good an evidence base as do conventional approaches. The treatments we offer are by comparison, safer than conventional treatment modalities, but it is important to realise that significantly less research has been done with the approaches we offer than with conventional approaches. This is why our treatment programmes are offered an ‘informed consent’ basis only. It is important not to have false hopes as to what we might be able to achieve. We do not claim that any of our treatments, investigative procedures, or blood tests are cures.
We have an academic approach to our work and have written several research papers relating to life threatening illnesses.
The problem with life threatening illnesses is that they are complex illnesses and operate as ‘systems’ rather than as linear processes. The science of genetic disorders giving rise to life threatening illnesses, is just such a complex process. This means that we would therefore need a systems review approach, of assessing plausible treatments, in order to truly establish their value. This sort of research methodology does not exist currently; a research problem for the majority of complementary medicine, which has a poor evidence base but an increasing number of patients – interestingly enough, doctors are major users!

We can recommend accommodation for patients when they stay locally for their treatment programmes.
