Charities – Campaigns
British Homeopathic Association
Lauren is the youngest ever trustee of the British Homeopathic Association and is dedicated to working with them to help homeopathy become more of an option in one’s recovery, as opposed to a last resort, being part of the campaigns that fight to keep homeopathy on the NHS, and helping to bring homeopathy into the public eye as a positive, helpful tool in keeping healthy.
For more information on the BHA and Homeopathy please visit www.britishhomeopathic.org. We’d also love you to become a ‘friend’ of the charity which you can do on the website.
Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine
Lauren is also patient spokesperson for the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine in Great Ormond Street. Her role here is to talk to the press as the ‘patients’ voice’ as well as helping campaign to keep homeopathy on the NHS. In 2010 the Science and Technology Committee at the House of Lords were trying to take homeopathy off the NHS and we are trying to stop this from happening.
A huge range of complementary therapies are offered at the RLHIM, not just homeopathy, and there is ample proof that this has aided recovery for many patients including myself and other patients with long term, chronic, or even life threatening illnesses.
Among the clinics available are a cancer care clinic, children’s clinic, women’s health clinic, dieticians, podiatry, rheumatology, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, pain management and much more. As an ambassador for the League of Friends of the hospital, Lauren would love you to become a friend too by visiting their website www.friendsrlhim.org
