Some patients continued to be treated free effective hydrochlorothiazide 25 mg blood pressure medication lightheadedness, one made an initial contribution of £100 generic hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg overnight delivery arteria tapada del corazon, one paid £160 a month, while two further patients agreed to pay £80 a month, half way through the study. The Trust was buying the made-up treatments from a company in Switzerland at about £180 to £200 a month. There is no doubt that the trials did not go well and because Davis lacked finance he was forced to restrict the number of patients on the trial to six. In fact Pinching had said that when there was a conflict between a trial and treatment, you have to devolve into treatment. If the protocol says that the patient should only have treatment A but at some point in the trial it becomes apparent that they would benefit from treatment B, then you have to give them 39 treatment B. By the beginning of 1989, the reaction against natural medicine was gathering pace. During the course of setting up the Trust, Davis met Dietmar Bolle, one of the early members of Positively Healthy. The gathering antagonism towards alternative treatments did not initially bother Davis. He did not see it as an organised response and after all he was fairly used to scepticism, even ridicule. Dietmar Bolle continued to support him and wrote a favourable article for the Body 42 Positive Newsletter. This therapy is based on Ayur-Veda, the ardent health system of India, a natural and holistic approach. The article centred mainly upon Dr Deepak Chopra, the most prominent theoretician of Ayur-Vedic medicine, who works in America. At the end, however, the article carried an advertisement for the clinical trials being carried out by Dr Davis of the Disease Free Society Trust. Davis was worried about this serious inaccuracy and wrote to the Sunday Times to correct the mistake. Duncan Campbell tried frequently and a Dr Dominik Wujastyk from the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine, also called his answering service. By the summer of 1989, Davis was refusing to return phone calls which came from anyone connected with Wellcome. He was convinced that he had been targeted by them and they were spreading misinformation about him. After a flyer was sent out to some 2,000 people on the Body Positive mailing list, advertising the seminar, the Trust received a phone call from Campbell. They were frightened, they said, of an article that a journalist was about to write. Next, Davis heard that the Terrence Higgins Trust would picket the seminar if it was held. Following the seminar, Davis received a letter of complaint ostensibly from the Terrence Higgins Trust but most probably, he thought, written by Duncan Campbell. Hamid also failed to tell Davis the real reason that she had requested herbal preparations from him. In August 1990, Campbell published his first serious attack upon Davis and Chalmers, in 44 the Independent on Sunday. As a qualified doctor, Davis had always been adamant that any such diet should be individually suited to the health status of the patient. There were also dietary guidelines based on the type of imbalance which was presented. This page-long article included a paragraph deriding Dr Davis and Dr Chalmers and their adherence to Ayur-Ved. Appearing before the Professional Conduct Committee of the General Medical Council is perhaps one of the worst things which can happen to a doctor, second only to being found guilty and being struck off. Doctors are on the whole only brought before the Committee on serious and substantial charges and only found guilty when there is irrefutable evidence. Being struck off, signals the end of years of training and experience and shatters a professional career. As was to be expected, the witnesses for the prosecution were men who believed unerringly in orthodox medicine. Even from the lay point of view, it is clear that in the case of Davis and Chalmers, we are not dealing with doctors who have broken the criminal law; they have not sexually assaulted patients nor prescribed poisonous or illegal substances. Only one of the charges related to a specific patient and it might be said that it was this charge which was the most substantial. This charge, like the others, came nowhere near being logically or legally reasonable. The prosecution could only surmise and not prove that it was the herbal pills which caused the stomach pains.

Cover the compress with the towel and wrap the abdominal region in 28 flannel sheet. Close the bag and squeeze the compress until saturated with oil 22 but not dripping. Place the plas- 23 tic bag with compress as well as washcloth and wool cloth onto the hot water 24 bottle to warm.

The compress can be left on longer, even overnight if the patient falls asleep 32 during an evening treatment. Wrap compress in dishcloth, dip into hot yarrow infusion until fully 21 soaked, then wring out excess liquid. Around 70% of patients are able 10 to pass urine spontaneously up to 2 hours after treatment. The compresses 11 also achieve good effects in patients with urinary retention following coro- 12 nary angiography. Many patients with cystitis reported that the pain on uri- 13 nation disappeared after 2 to 3 days of treatment. Urine cultures have 14 shown that oil compresses alone are not sufficient, but are an excellent ad- 15 junct to pharmaceutical treatment. Close the bag and squeeze the compress until saturated 27 with oil but not dripping. Place 28 the plastic bag with the compress as well as the washcloth and the wool cloth 29 onto the hot water bottle to warm. If the 34 35 feet are cold, have the patient put on wool socks and/or place a second hot wa- 36 ter bottle under the feet. Apply the 20 horseradish poultice to the stomach in such a way that there is only one layer 21 of cloth between the compress and the skin. Place the towel over the compress 22 and wrap the stomach region in the flannel sheet. Dip the compress into the salt water and oil solution, then wrap in 28 the dish towel and wring out. Check the compress for heat tolerance by touching it lightly on the un- 31 derside of the forearm. Place the compress over the upper abdominal region 32 (solar plexus) and cover with the towel. If the feet are cold, place the hot water bottle under the feet or over the 34 stomach. In crisis situations, it can also be performed at other 41 times of the day or at nighttime. It improves the patient’s 12 ability to fall asleep or sleep through the night, provided the patient is not 13 a habitual sleeping aid user. The compresses give family members a chance 14 to get involved in treatment, especially in long-stay, seriously ill, or dying 15 patients. The family members should be encouraged to apply the compress, 16 placing one hand on the compress and caressing the patient with the other. Close the bag and squeeze the compress until saturated with 31 oil but not dripping. Place the 32 plastic bag with the compress as well as the washcloth and the wool cloth onto 33 the hot water bottle to warm. If cold, warm by placing a hot water bottle directly 35 underneath them or over the stomach. Place the 36 heated compress over the upper sternal region and cover with the heated 37 washcloth or wool cloth. Wakeful patients should be in- 39 structed to place one hand over the compress for enhanced perception of its 40 mild warming effect. If the patient is unable to respond to instructions, the 41 therapist should lay the patient’s hand over the compress.
