Her Majesty, yes, the Queen of England who parachuted out of an airplane with James Bond (wink, wink) in order to make a grand entrance at the 2012 Olympics, made a controversial choice when she appointed Dr. Tim Evans as her doctor 8 years ago. He is a fan of complementary therapies and “raves about acupuncture (it has almost completely got rid of his hay fever)”. He personally takes a holistic approach to things and believes that it is wise to look at the patient, not the illness. His attitude is very Traditional Chinese Medicine where the philosophy is about prevention as much as cure.
I keep imagining gruff, formal Prince Phillip with acupuncture needles and it makes me smile.
