Important health related advice

General health advice
  • greenwichnaturalhealth.co.uk provides general information on a wide range of health and therapy topics, but does not contain all the relevant information about every medical condition. The information is not a substitute for professional care by a qualified practitioner. 
  • If you are concerned about your symptoms or have any other concerns or questions about your health or medicines, you should always consult an appropriate healthcare professional. 
  • Be cautious about embarking on vigorous exercise or therapy if you have any serious medical condition, such as back pain, high blood pressure or heart disease, or if you are pregnant.
  • Medical information is changing constantly. The way the internet and your computer works may mean you do not always receive the latest version, or a complete version, of our web pages. Whilst we do everything we can to bring you the trustworthy and reliable information, we cannot give an absolute guarantee that every piece of information on our web site is true, accurate or up to date at all times.
  • If you are already using a medicine, remedy or other supplement, you should always ensure it is safe to start taking another remedy alongside this. Always read the product information contained on the pack, as well as the information leaflet (if provided) before taking any herbal medicine or similar product.
  • The information on our web site is not designed for use by healthcare professionals. 
  • The naming of any organisation, product, or complementary therapy or practitioner on this web site does not imply endorsement by The Greenwich Natural Health Centre Ltd. The omission of any such names does not necessarily indicate a lack of endorsement by The Greenwich Natural Health Centre Ltd.

  • We strongly recommend that you consult your doctor before following any complementary therapies if you are receiving conventional medication or treatment for any condition.
  • Do not cease conventional treatment or medication for any reason without consulting a doctor.

Our advertising and web site content

The Greenwich Natural Health Centre Ltd aims to follow the Committee for Advertising Practice Code for health and beauty products and therapies which are listed here:

50.1 Medical and scientific claims made about beauty and health-related products should be backed by evidence, where appropriate consisting of trials conducted on people.  Where relevant, the rules will also relate to claims for products for animals.  Substantiation will be assessed by the ASA on the basis of the available scientific knowledge.

50.2 Marketers inviting consumers to diagnose their own minor ailments should not make claims that might lead to a mistaken diagnosis.

50.3 Marketers should not discourage essential treatment.  They should not offer specific advice on, diagnosis of or treatment for serious or prolonged conditions unless it is conducted under the supervision of a doctor or other suitably qualified health professional (e.g. one subject to regulation by a statutory or recognised medical or health professional body). Accurate and responsible general information about such conditions may, however, be offered.

50.4 Consumers should not be encouraged to use products to excess and marketers should hold proof before suggesting their products or therapies are guaranteed to work, absolutely safe or without side-effects.

50.5 Marketing communications should not suggest that any product is safe or effective merely because it is ‘natural’ or that it is generally safer because it omits an ingredient in common use.

50.6 Marketers offering individual treatments, particularly those that are physically invasive, may be asked by the media and the ASA to provide full details together with information about those who will supervise and administer them. Where appropriate, practitioners should have relevant and recognised qualifications. Marketers should encourage consumers to take independent medical advice before committing themselves to significant treatments, including those that are physically invasive.

50.7 References to the relief of symptoms or the superficial signs of ageing are acceptable if they can be substantiated.  Unqualified claims such as ‘cure’ and ‘rejuvenation’ are not generally acceptable.

50.8 Marketers should hold proof before claiming or implying that minor addictions and bad habits can be treated without effort from those suffering.

50.9 Marketers should not use unfamiliar scientific words for common conditions.
