Prince Charles Commissioned a Report on Alternative Medicine

The report in support of alternative therapies, such as chiropractic manipulations is to be sent to ministers (in London) in October. This study would report on money-saving benefits of complementary medicine if offered by the National Health Service (NHS) as standard. A study by research firm, Fresh Minds, which had been hired by Princes Charles, an enthusiast for complementary therapies, suggest that savings of between £500m and £3.5bn could be achieved by offering spinal manipulation therapies, such as chiropractic. If general practitioners (GP) offer homeopathy as an alternative to standard drugs up to 10% could be cut from the prescription drugs’ bill, totaling nearly £480m, the report emphasize.
