"Dr Michael Dixon OBE is clearly a big fan of alternative medicine, although, of course, he prefers the PR friendly term *integrated medicine*. Dixon runs his own GP practice in Devon. By the look of it, it is quite a smart place. The Prince's Foundation for Integrated Health ran an article about it a few months ago: Integrated Health at Cullompton….. Dixon accuses his detractors of making him a "target of a campaign to force him out of his NHS Alliance role". I note, though, that in the FIH article, Dr Dixon rather surprisingly tells us that, 'I got into the integrated approach for purely selfish reasons." Now that is a charge I would not dare to make. But by promoting such nonsense to his patients, and by misleading people over the evidence for their effectiveness, and allowing the FIH to promote his practice without declaring an interest, I would think that, at the very least, we are dealing with someone, well, rather graceless."
