Regarding the new guide about Complementary and Alternative Medicine which was issued by The Prince of Wales's Foundation for Integrated Health, Michael Fox, chief executive of the foundation, conceded the guide was not an analysis of the evidence base for complementary approaches, but hoped it was 'easy-to read and useful'. Dr Michael Dixon, Chairman of the NHS Alliance and a Trustee of The Prince of Wales's Foundation for Integrated Health, claimed "Last year, there was one trial suggesting aromatherapy only worked if the patient thought it worked. The conventional scientists would say therefore it doesn't work but that is the wrong conclusion. The conclusion is a complementary therapy works for those who believe in it". The Guardian (15th February 2005) [NOTE: Kim Lavely was appointed Chief Executive of The Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health in September 2005]
