Biographical Information

"Charles Innes was born into a family of doctors, and graduated as a medical doctor himself after studying at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London (Bart’s) in 1985. However, there were still a lot of questions he needed answering, and after gaining experience in a number of doctrines, he chose psychiatry as a career.

"However, by this time he was experiencing persistent health problems. Serious illness in the form of chronic post viral fatigue and a head tumour motivated him to find the most effective treatments for himself and his patients. He eventually became unable to work, and in desperation posted a plea for help in a doctors’ journal. The replies pointed him in the direction of nutrition, homeopathy and herbalism.

"He discovered that the answer lies in using the treatment that best fits the illness, and set out both to fix himself and also adapt his clinical practice.

"He experienced success with complementary medicine in both respects, and decided to change career, training as a homeopath at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. Since then he has added herbalism (Scottish School of Herbal Medicine), healing (College of Psychic Studies), further homeopathic studies (Dynamis School for Advanced Homeopathic Studies), and the Gerson therapy. His practice reflects elements of these disciplines.

"After working for many years at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, he co-founded and medically directed one of the first large integrated medicine centres in London, and has practiced complementary medicine in other hospitals, private clinics, Harley Street, naturopathy clinics, homeopathy centres and charity-funded centres, as well as working with GPs.

"Practicing complementary medicine since 1992, this journey has enabled Dr Innes to develop new therapeutic tools: he has found new indications for herbal and homeopathic remedies, developed a new way to trigger self-healing in some people, and written a thesis on the systematic approach to herbalism.

"Dr Innes offers both the knowledge that comes from being multiply qualified and the understanding gleaned from experience with complex and serious illness and takes a balanced approach that embraces several disciplines, which he believes is where the future of medicine lies.

"He is registered with the General Medical Council, the Society of Homeopaths and the Confederation of Healing Organisations; he is also a member of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists and on the Special Register of the Faculty of Homeopaths as a Supervisor.

"He is also recognised as a ‘Specialist in Homeopathy’ by BUPA, PPP and most other medical insurers - who tend not to cover herbalism or healing."[1]
