King Charles has long been an advocate of homeopathic medicine and believes there is great value in complementary therapies. Such is his belief that he appointed Dr Michael Dixon, 71, a staunch supporter, to be the head of his royal medical household in 2022. After his appointment became public, Buckingham Palace put out a statement saying: 'Dr Dixon does not believe homeopathy can cure cancer. 'His position is that complementary therapies can sit alongside conventional treatments, provided they are safe, appropriate and evidence based.' Dr Dixon has thrown his support behind offering treatments such as aromatherapy and reflexology on the NHS.
