One of the most moving stories of my entire medical career was a woman called Susan (her real name). She was 39 years old when she came to me. Her parents had read about me in the newspapers, talking about improvements despite brain damage, and wondered if I could help their daughter in any way. Susan was indisputably mentally handicapped and had the mind of a child. She could not read or write; she could not count or deal with money; she was a danger to herself in the kitchen, since she was extremely clumsy and forgetful - the sort of individual who might overlook lighting the gas and blow herself up, or forget that dishes from the oven are very hot and could cause serious burns. She couldn't even be allowed to cross the road unaccompanied, for fear of her safety. But that was all about to change.
Just a few weeks into my Food Allergy Plan, Susan "woke up." In her own dramatic and moving words, she said "I just woke up one day and I was here!" I find it hard to comprehend what that must mean for a woman of almost 40, whose life had been uncomprehending up to that point. Not that she settled for moping about the lost years. Susan began learning to read and write; she could count; she could go shopping on her own; she understood money and could obtain the correct change; she wanted to paint and live life to the full.
Her wonderful story was told and retold in the press, most notably by the German-based magazine Bella, under the banner "Prisoner No More." The double-page spread began with Susan's remarkable words, which I will quote unaltered:
"You see for most of my life I have been classed as 'mentally handicapped' and even the simplest tasks were well beyond me. Although I could see, hear, smell, taste--I simply couldn't understand what my senses were telling me. The messages were all jumbled. So the world passed me by in a confused, bewildering blur. It's only in the last few months I've come out into the real world - and it's fantastic. I feel as if I've been reborn or, at least, released from prison after serving a long harsh sentence."
In Susan's case the target organ was her brain. Here was a salutary case where over 95% recovery of brain function took place. Let it be a solemn warning to all, what sad stories may be out there, of people doomed to inadequacy because of unsuspected reactions to humble everyday foods. Long afterwards I used to love getting the scrawly letters Susan wrote me. Possibly the deepest moment of all between us was when, on her final visit, she asked if she could work for me and help others in a similar predicament to hers: "I can answer the phone and write things down!" she said proudly. It takes a lot to render me speechless, as friends and family will confirm, but at that moment the lump in my throat was so big I couldn't answer. I just trusted to a hug.
This is just one of many cases in my career in which I have been able to transform an individual's life through natural medical advice and treatment.
Book review by Peter Shepherd
I consider Dr Keith Scott-Mumby to be unmatched in terms of his vast knowledge and diversity of experience. Unlike most MDs he fully embraces alternative medicine and advanced personal development psychology. During the 1980s he almost single-handedly changed public appreciation in the UK of the way in which food and environmental allergies make us ill. The case history above is just one example.
His new book is called "Diet Wise." Its theme is letting your own body choose the food that's right for you. Forget the Atkins diet, the metabolic typing diet, the South Beach Diet and all the rest - every popular diet ever conceived has made many individuals ill, because they have an allergy or genetic incompatibility with one or more of the recommended foods. The right way to go is to figure out your own unique diet and he shows us how to do just that.
Genetic food incompatibility is a budding new science. Make no mistake - food can make you sick. Perhaps very sick. Foods can also help you switch off "bad" genes and will nurture "good" genes. So it is vitally important what you eat. The trouble is, you don't know which foods, do you?
Well, now there is a book which will help you figure it out for yourself. Dr Scott-Mumby puts together the benefits of his vast clinical experience to show you how you can uncover the secret foods that may be sapping your vitality, reducing your mental powers, causing numerous mysterious symptoms and perhaps even shortening your life. You can feel great, shed pounds, look and feel terrific, all the while eating as much healthy food as you like. In fact food cravings will vanish and weight control is almost automatic, once you follow the steps laid out for you.
Here are universal healthy eating principles that nobody should be ignorant of. If you eat right you will feel great and naturally lose weight. His explanations are enriched by many fascinating and moving case histories, showing how some individuals overcame almost impossible odds to eventually find health and happiness, using the diet steps in this book. It will work for you too.
Whether you are healthy but wanting to enrich your life and stay well, or suffering from a medical condition that is being made worse by toxic food overload, everything you need to know is in this book. This comprehensive guide is guaranteed to change your understanding of food and nutrition forever. You will be truly Diet Wise...
