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 (renamed from the British Society for Allergy, Environmental and Nutritional Medicine), a medical society interested in looking at causes of disease and treating through diet, vitamins and minerals and through 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. She has made many appearances on TV and radio. Visit her website at www.drmyhill.co.uk
This life-changing book is based on the essential premise that Modern Western Medicine, driven by vested interests, is failing to address the root causes of disease processes. Symptom-suppressing medication and poly-pharmacy are resulting in an escalation of disease and a system of so-called 'health care' which is not sustainable. In Sustainable Medicine, Dr Sarah Myhill aims to empower people to heal themselves through addressing the underlying causes of their diseases. She presents a logical progression from symptoms to identifying the underlying mechanisms, to the relevant interventions, tests and tools with which to tackle the root causes of their symptoms.
For Dr Sarah Myhill, the practice of medicine is all about asking the right questions - if you do not look you will not find - and this applies to the causes of both chronic 21st-century health problems and poor responses to acute infections. Ecological Medicine is Dr Myhill's comprehensive guide to health care for health practitioners and motivated patients alike - armed with this knowledge, wellness and an optimal health-span should be within our grasp and the grasp of all those we care for. Easy to follow, logical and evidence based, Dr Myhill with the assistant of writer and editor Craig Robinson, shows how, if we can get the basics right, disease specific benefits will follow. She does not pretend it's easy but the incentives are undeniable. A range of case histories - organised by body system to match earlier chapters - show how to apply the theory in this book to ourselves and to those we care for, personally and/or professionally. Using principally a spirit of enquiry together the PK diet, vitamin C, iodine, sleep and exercise, ecological medicine can be available to all both practically and affordably. Just do it!
Dr Myhill, ably supported by Craig Robinson, writes: `It is generally believed that infection is a killer of the past. Wrong - research now shows that our big killers, from cancers and coronaries to dementia and diabetes are largely infection-driven. Indeed, it is difficult to find a pathology that does not have an infectious associate. Cheap and effective defences are within the grasp of all of us. We have all the weapons we need to win the arms race. Our new book provides the intellectual imperatives and practical know-how to conquer the established, prevent the potential and postpone the inevitable. Just do it!' The Infection Game shows us how we can maximise our defences and martial our weapons so that we are ready to defeat the infectious organisms we encounter every day and in epidemic situations.
Dr Sarah Myhill has been helping sufferers from debilitating chronic conditions for over 30 years with an approach that combines all the benefits of current scientific knowledge and medical testing and treatments with an expanding appreciation of the importance of nutrition and lifestyle. Her book with Craig Robinson, Prevent and Cure Diabetes, saw her arrive at the conclusion that the diet we should ALL be eating is one that combines Paleo principles (eating pre-agricultural, seasonal foods) with Ketogenic ones (fuel the body with fats and fibre, not with carbs). That book tells us WHY; now in this down-to-earth, highly practical cookbook, Sarah and Craig tell us HOW.
Diabetes type 2 - which results from insensitivity to insulin - and its precursor, metabolic syndrome, are reaching epidemic proportions yet if the root causes can be addressed the condition can be both prevented and reversed. Diabetes type 1 (autoimmune - arising from insufficient insulin) is caused by other factors (primary risk factors are dairy products, vitamin D deficiency and vaccines) but is also more prevalent today than ever before. Dr Myhill has long experience of helping her patients overcome diabetes and related problems of uncontrolled blood sugar and low energy; this informs her account of how and why burning fat rather than carbs is healthier, more natural and more efficient, and how the necessary 'metabolic flexibility' can be achieved. With the support of her co-author Craig Robinson, she also addresses the many other risk factors for diabetes, including environmental toxins, drugs (prescribed, over-the-counter and illegal), medical conditions and poor lifestyle choices, and how the multiple health problems that follow from poorly controlled blood sugar levels can be avoided.
