Mental starvation Entire industries in modern medicine—psychiatry, the drug industry, even many therapeutic arms of psychology—are predicated on the idea that chronic, crippling stress, anxiety and a number of other forms of so-called mental illness are incredibly tough nuts to crack, requiring years of strong medication that, at best, can only control symptoms. In fact, […]

How to stop growing terrorists What on earth possesses someone to become a suicide bomber or a terrorist? For years I’ve been mystified about the thought process of, say, a Palestinian like Hanifah, beautiful and intelligent, a woman with a law degree, a one-year-old daughter and everything to live for, when she walks into the […]

In 1992, I got held up in a store robbery.  I was with my daughter, Caitlin, then age 3, and we were in a north London health store, of all places.  The health store had a little café in the back, where we’d often take time from a shopping trip to go to have a […]

A big mental adjustment Despite being the world’s most popular form of alternative treatment, chiropractic has lately had a bad press, particularly in the UK. It began when Simon Singh, the self-appointed attack dog on all things alternative, decided to promote his book Trick or Treatment: Alternative Medicine on Trial by writing an article in […]

Broadcast journalism has landed many low blows before when it comes to alternative views about medicine. I was eight months pregnant with our first child when we launched WDDTY, and a few moments before I was due to have a live debate with a media doctor, he leaned over and murmured, sotto voce: ‘Did you […]

A friend of mine’s daughter – out of nowhere -  has suddenly been laid low with a strange sort of chronic fatigue. It’s been called all sorts of things – Epstein-Barr, ‘kissing disease,’ but privately I suspect something else.  She is the only daughter among our friends of young women of the same age who […]

No one doubts that we’re social creatures, designed to share food and shelter, but last week I came across some evidence in evolutionary theory suggesting that we’ve also been designed to share our thoughts. Michael Tomasello, co-director of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, has written The Cultural Origins of Human Cognition, a book […]

To eat or not to eat—that is the question. Or, to put it another way, what is the perfect diet for health, perfect weight and longevity? In the close to three decades since Bryan and I have been publishing WDDTY, we’ve seen (and, in many cases, seen off) the Cambridge Diet (a very low-calorie diet), […]

Last night I went to a screening at London’s Curzon Soho of the film JUST ONE DROP (, a great new film about homeopathy, which miraculously didn’t get banned or trolled. This professional, eight-year effort attempted to be quite even-handed, while featuring many compelling and documented success stories. There was a child with autism who […]

My magazine What Doctors Don’t Tell You owes its start to dental fillings—my dental fillings. I’d had bad teeth as a kid—the product of the average heavily processed, high-sugar, American diet—and by the time I was a teenager, there weren’t many of my teeth, other than the few at the front, that weren’t covered in […]
