Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, MD – Food Allergy Detective and Alternative Therapy Watchdog

Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby, MD is a world renowned expert on food allergies, Chinese medicine, homotoxicology (“complex” homeopathy), alternative cancer therapies, and more.

He started the first successful Food and Environmental Allergy Clinic in the UK in 1979 which spread to Harley St (London), Glasgow, Dublin and Stockholm, and made medico-legal history in 1986, when a UK Crown Court accepted his evidence that a food allergy was making a young man murderously violent.

The young man was released on one condition: that he stick to Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby’s diet!.

Dr. Scott-Mumby’s pioneering work in reversing disease by identifying and eliminating food allergies attracted the “quack” label from some of his peers early in his career, but by 1990, the press were calling him “Britain’s Number One Allergy Detective”.

Dr. Scott-Mumby has authored many books including Cancer Research Secrets, in which he examines which alternative therapies are backed by scientific evidence and have real value and which ones don’t.

I know you’ll enjoy this fun and fascinating interview with Dr. Keith Scott-Mumby.

Hi I’m Chris!

I was diagnosed with stage IIIc colon cancer in 2003. After surgery I opted-out of chemo and used nutrition and natural therapies to heal. Today I’m healthy, strong, and cancer-free! If you’d like to learn how to help yourself heal or prevent cancer, you’ve come to the right place!
