Prof. Keith Scott-Mumby MD, MB ChB, PhD
Qualified in medicine MB ChB (same as MD) in Manchester, UK in 1970. Almost immediately jumped the fence into controversial alternatives.
Started the first successful Food and Environmental Allergy Clinic in 1979 which rapidly spread to Harley St (London), Glasgow, Dublin and Stockholm. Those were exciting days in which we made many new discoveries.
I made medico-legal history in 1986, when a UK Crown Court accepted my evidence that food allergy was capable of making a youth murderously violent; I rated 20 minutes of Channel Four News and the youth was given a conditional release (condition: that he stick to Scott-Mumby’s diet!)
By 1990 the press were calling me “Britain’s Number One Allergy Detective”. I have published several books in this field. I have been interviewed by the BBC and TV and radio stations worldwide, as a recognized expert in alternative health paradigms.
More recently, I have gone into other areas and started to search for answers as to why an individual gets allergies in the first place. The answers have led me into homotoxicology (“complex” homeopathy) and electro-dermal screening, using computers and the Chinese model, allied to a Western technological database.
I now write and lecture internationally on the themes of energetic medicine and the new anti-ageing science, which is my current forte. I wrote the book VIRTUAL MEDICINE to bring science and validation to this emerging field and the vast technology it has spawned.
I was appointed professor of energy medicine at the Capital University of Integrative Medicine (now demised) and professor of nutrition at the Open International University for Complementary Medicines, USA. I am also on the Senate of the latter.
My major book DIET WISE is the summation of 30 years advanced clinical work. It is truly the book that has been missing from the diet market. It tells you why there is no set diet for health; why what YOU need to eat for vitality and a long life differs completely from everyone else! Forget the Atkins Diet, the South Beach Diet, the Blood Typing Diet and all the other me-too plans. What you never get to hear about is that all these diets make some individuals very ill. It’s simply not scientific that we can all be squeezed into one or two, or even a dozen, categories. Everyone is genetically unique and this is reflected in our own very personal food tolerances. Knowing what you should and shouldn’t eat is being Diet Wise!
