Qualified in medicine MB ChB (same as MD) in Manchester, UK in 1970, Scott-Mumby almost immediately began research into controversial alternative medicine.
He 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.
Scott-Mumby made medico-legal history in 1986, when a UK Crown Court accepted his evidence that food allergy was capable of making a youth murderously violent; the story rated 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 him “Britain’s Number One Allergy Detective”. Scott-Mumby has published several books in this field and been interviewed by the BBC and TV and radio stations worldwide, as a recognized expert in alternative health paradigms.
More recently, he has 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 him into homotoxicology (“complex” homeopathy) and electro-dermal screening, using computers, and the Chinese model, allied to a Western technological database.
Prof. Scott-Mumby now writes and lectures internationally on the themes of energetic medicine and the new anti-ageing science, which is his current forte. He wrote the book VIRTUAL MEDICINE to bring science and validation to this emerging field and the vast technology it has spawned.
In 2005, he 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. He is also on the Senate of the latter.
His major book DIET WISE is the summation of 30 years advanced clinical work.
