FAQs/Policy Statements (RLHIM)

The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine does not recommend or prescribe homeopathic medicines to replace the Department of Health’s childhood immunisation programme.

Can I use complementary medicine for malaria prevention?
The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine does not recommend or prescribe homeopathic medicines as preventatives for tropical diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, cholera or hepatitis A.

Can I use complementary medicine for cancer and HIV/AIDS?
The Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine does not recommend or prescribe homeopathic or other complementary therapies to directly treat cancer or HIV/AIDS.
