Winner of The People's Book Prize Best Achievement Award 2016.

Dr Myhill brings together her years of experience in ecological medicine to provide a person-centred, sustainable alternative to conventional medicine's focus on individual symptoms and unsustainable poly-pharmacy. She empowers her readers to take charge of their own health.

Synopsis

Sustainable Medicine by Sarah Myhill

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.

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 (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
