Complementary therapies under fire tomorrow morning, 10am Channel 5, The Wright Stuff...

Hi I was forwarded this by a friend and thought it might be worth putting up on the forum:

Subject: A Very Important Message from Jayney Goddard

Hi, I really need your help . . .

I just wanted to let you know that I will be appearing on The Wright Stuff
on Channel 5 this coming Wednesday 7th May at 10 am.

I will be in debate with Simon Singh (who has recently written a book with
Professor Edzard Ernst which basically sets out to prove that complementary
medicine is dangerous, ineffective and should not be made available.)

Many of the recent attacks on CAM in the media recently have happened as a
result of this book.

We will be discussing homeopathy - and of course Simon Singh is completely
against it - as you might expect. (Google him and Prof Ernst for more info.)

I would love you to call in to the show to talk about your positive
experiences of complementary medicine and especially homeopathy (as this is
the main subject in this particular show).

The telephone number to call is 0207 173 5555 - it is not a premium rate
number and will cost the same as any normal phone call.

I really do need your support - furthermore - we need to protect homeopathy
and all other complementary medical modalities.

Please do tune in if possible - Wednesday 7th May - 10am - Channel 5

I would be hugely grateful if you would forward it to as many people as
possible who you feel would be interested in helping and of course if you
have already received this email - my apologies - it simply means that
someone thinks that you would find it of interest.

Many thanks and warmest wishes

Just wanted to say good luck to Janey for tomorrow. I'm a recently qualified therapist, amd it makes me really cross when people think understand all the ins and outs of complementary therapies and then decide to trash it. How dare they!!!
I will be watching and if I think I can contribute, I will certainly try to get through and have my say too

Again good luck

Best Regards

How did it go? I had another engagement and unfortunately I didn't record it properly:(( so missed it.

To my shame, I missed it! I'm not actually a friend of Janey, her message was just forwarded on to me, so I can't tell you anything about it. Maybe someone out there can tell us...?

Hi Roushan

I don't suppose you could find out from Jayney?

Only to the extent that you or anyone else can, I'm afraid - as I said, I'm not a friend of Jayney - the message was forwarded to me, and I don't know via how many people!
