Dr. Sarah Myhill’s comprehensive, evidence-based guide to health care for both health practitioners and motivated patients

Armed with this knowledge, wellness and an optimal health-span should be within our grasp and the grasp of those we care for. Dr Myhill explains—in easy-to-follow, logical fashion—how if we can get the basics right, disease-specific benefits will follow. And a range of case histories show how to apply the theory in this book to ourselves and to those we care for, personally and/or professionally. Using the PK diet, vitamin C, iodine, sleep, and exercise, ecological medicine can be available to all both practically and affordably.

About the Author

Dr Sarah Myhill qualified in medicine (with Honours) from Middlesex Hospital Medical School in 1981 and has since focused tirelessly on identifying and treating the underlying causes of health problems, especially the ‘diseases of civilisation’ with which we are beset in the West. She has worked in NHS and private practice and for 17 years was the Hon Secretary of the British Society for Ecological Medicine, which focuses on the causes of disease and treating through diet, supplements and avoiding toxic stress. She helps to run and lectures at the Society’s training courses and also lectures regularly on organophosphate poisoning, the problems of silicone, and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Craig Robinson took a first in Mathematics at Oxford University in 1985. He then joined Price Waterhouse and qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1988, after which he worked as a lecturer in the private sector, and also in The City of London, primarily in Financial Sector Regulation roles. Craig first met Sarah in 2001, as a patient for the treatment of his CFS, and since then they have developed a professional working relationship, where he helps with the maintenance of, the moderating of Dr Myhill's Facebook groups and other ad hoc projects, as well as with the editing and writing of her books.
