I won’t be able to make this event but it looks well worth a visit – wish I could be there…! However, all those in and around London should take time for a visit if you are interested in the history and social aspects that surround Alternative Medicine. Check the link below to view a video ‘taster’ and down load the transcript from last years event.
This new improved remedy tackles all ills by alternative or orthodox methods. Turn to our expert physiciansfrom three centuries for a diagnosis, if they fail to offer a convincing cure, Doctor Gripenerve the Victorian quack doctor will tend to your needs.
Keep your brain as well as your body in tip-top condition with an expert panel who will examine medical evidence. For the strong of stomach a live leech may be just the thing, or try a more radical approach used by naval surgeons. Who do you trust? Government or grandmother? Sensible advice abounds in our public information films and home remedies.
If exhaustion is your problem, the soothing waters of the spas and wells of London will wash away the stresses of the week but in case they don’t work the bar will remain open and our lively musicians will entertain!
