    Where can the best doctors in London be found please? Or in the UK as a whole
    I need the names of the hospitals in which they work/can be found if possible

    I have a chronic condition that gets worse every year and doctors i always went to weren't able to help me get rid of it for good.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated

    what is the condition? There are lots of natural remedies. Really the only way to beat anything is with discipline and good old nature.

    Now you just sounded like my dad lol this is something beyond my control though, i've tried everything and it only goes and comes after a while.
    I have severe anaemia and have had it since i was 12. It's generated other severe conditions as well (pica, angina, memory loss, etc) don't really want to go into details else i'd type a whole book

    that's cause I am your dad. mwahahahahahaha.

    only joking.

    anaemia is about lack of iron isn't it. have you tried the obvious supplementation. what about severely upping your intake of beans, chicken and really importantly vitamin C ( as your body can't absorb iron without vitamin c) ??

    don't go to doctors if you can avoid it. all they're going to do is prescribe you something un-natural that may mask the symptoms but not really treat you.

    lool, hmmm...:beard: if anything i agree with the last part of your comment but really, believe me when i say i've tried EVERYTHING. My mum's a nurse and she never lets me rest so you can be assured i know pretty much everything i need to know concerning my condition esp the types of food or supplements i should be taking.

    I just need a good doctor that's all

    That is by far one of the most ridiuclous, uneducated, unhelpful and dangerous things I've ever heard on here.

    Tell a cancer patient that some natural herbs and spice nonsense will cure their cancer, or an HIV patient that they don't need antiretroviral drugs because "the only way to beat anything is with discipline and good old nature.". Opinions like that are just plain dangerous and damaging.

    At OP, the treatment available and whether it can ever truly be cure will depend on your condition. Many chronic conditions can only really be managed.

    Good luck finding new treatment.

    Again, ridiculous and dangerous advice.

    I have to agree with the last two comments (though OP does seem well informed about their condition). Natural remedies can be great, but sometimes prescribed medicines are necessary and proper diagnosis most definitely is. There is no point in taking a natural remedy for the wrong condition.OP, try getting a referral to a consultant that specialises. Since you seem to have looked into. A specialist should be able to tell you about the best natural approaches as well as medicines. Your GP should be able to find one so ask them.I just came across the BUPA facilities finder which allows you to search by their particular specialities so you could try searching for any in London who have an interest with anaemia or any other conditions that are a big problem for you.
