Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, MD, MB, ChB, PhD
Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby received his formal medical training in the UK. He went on to take a special interest in food allergies and nutrition and has written several popular books on these subjects. By the early nineteen nineties the media had dubbed him the “Number One Food Allergy Detective”. Since then he has expanded his areas of interest and specialization to include energy medicine, stress reduction and anti-aging medicine.
In 1987, Dr. Keith made medical / legal history, when a UK Crown Court accepted his testimony that food allergies could promote violent, anti-social behavior and that these allergies were responsible for a young defendant’s criminal actions. The youth was released by the court conditionally, the condition being that he follow the Scott-Mumby low allergy diet. The youth’s symptoms disappeared. Ironically he was an Irish lad, allergic to potatoes!
Today, Dr Keith’s emphasis is on integrated medicine, “treating root causes and the whole person…not just symptoms. Dr. Keith travels widely lecturing, internationally, on nutrition, food allergies, the role that stress plays in human suffering, and alternative medicine issues.
Dr. Keith is a member of the Royal Society of Medicine (UK), a founder / member of the British Society for Nutrition, Allergy and Environmental Medicine, and a member of the faculty and board of advisors of American College for the Advancement of Medicine (ACAM) among many other honours. His lectures have been warmly received all over the world from London, to St. Petersburg, to Washington DC and campuses all over North America.
Dr. Keith considers stress and tension to be one of the most urgent health concerns of the 21st century. He also considers the development of healthy chocolates, clinically proven to lower stress and tension, to be a highlight of his professional career.
