Workshops for Ecological Medicine
Dr Myhill’s Travelling Workshops for Ecological Medicine
Aims – I have got to the stage where the initial work-up to treat CFS/ME is standard and well covered in our books. What I need to do now is to show people how to go about self-management ie teach people how to heal themselves.
The word ‘doctor’ is derived from the Latin ‘docere’ (to teach) and so I am, at last, living up to my title!
How the day will work
- I will provide all participants with an A3 sheet of paper with a management plan which provides the overall strategy. This will link to chapters in my books so it is clear where you can find further background on each subject. This will allow you to develop your personal management plan.
- I will send the management plans electronically to the organisers in advance who can pass this onto participants- - so you will know what to expect.
- I will guide all participants through this so that by the end of the day each participant will have their own personalised plan for recovery. You just need to bring a pen. Th is will be a simply tick box exercise. If you wish to fill in the frame electronically then do bring a laptop or such.
- If you have had any tests done, then please bring the results along and I will go through them on the day
- I will also bring a list of resources (books, supplements etc) so you can purchase the necessary on the day to get started.
- I shall not be using computers or wifi as I am very aware of the problems of electrical sensitivity.
- We need a comfortable room where we can all sit down perhaps with space for some to lie horizontal.
- I am very happy to sit on the floor (I like sitting on the floor!) and I will bring a bean bag for me
- I will arrive and be with you by 8.45
- Aim to start at 9am. I will start talking then. I shall not wait for late comers! I will start with the overall strategy, move on to symptoms based on what you, the participants, describe. I shall explain what they mean (mechanisms) and move on to treatments.
- 12.45 – I shall disappear to check on Nancy and be back 1.30
- 1.30 – restart where we left off.
- At any stage interrupt, ask questions. It is no good me waffling on if I have left someone behind! Anyone is welcome to record the meeting.
- 3.30 I shall stop talking! 30 mins for anyone to purchase books or whatever. I shall have a mobile card reader for credit card payments. OR bring cash.
- 4.00 I shall leave!
- Please bring your own water and food (or liaise with organiser).
- Please respect the organisers who are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts!
What I expect from attendees
- I am running these workshops to teach strategy. Getting well is a “game” – I can teach you the rules of the game but you have to play it yourself with all the resources you can muster. I cannot micro-manage each attendee! I shall not be doing any private consultation with individuals. But you will pick up much by listening to the individual case histories and test interpretations and fill in your own management plan as we go on.
- I can show you where and how to access tests and laboratories. Details of how to interpret these are in our book, Ecological Medicine.
- Attending these workshops does not make you one of my patients. I cannot take responsibility for your management and I cannot field subsequent emails as I would be overwhelmed!
- However, I do expect participants to use and perhaps sign up to Natural Health Worldwide where they can find further help from experienced patients, qualified health professionals and medical doctors who are accepting new patients.
- Also, I would expect any practitioners who attend one of these workshops to sign up to Natural Health Worldwide. It is totally free and here is the link to register - Natural Health Worldwide Practitioner Sign Up Page
How I can help you subsequently
- If you wish me to check your management frame, please put this into an electronic form and send to me by email. I will look and correct and suggest additions or tests. This will take me 20 mins and I would charge £70 for this. If it takes longer I will let you know and ask if it is OK to spend your money on more time!
- Test interpretations – if you wish me to interpret your tests then please send me the tests and I will do at the same rate as above. Again I would allow 20 mins but if it takes longer then I will again check the cost with you first.
- For both of the above please send me any diagnosis you already have, your age, sex, past or present occupation, energy score (Bell disability scale) BMI, pulse rate and blood pressure.
- An example is appended below (yes it is me, but no I do not have CFS/ME!)

- The above can be done anonymously if you wish. If not, please state that you are happy to communicate with me by email without using encryption.
- Please note this does not make you a patient of mine – I cannot be responsible for your care without taking a full medical history. These recommendations are to help you and your GP or consultant determine the best possible treatment for you.
- Your GP or consultant is most welcome to get in touch with me by email should they have any questions or concerns.

Please email me(firstname.lastname@example.org) - and use the subject line 'Booking Dr Myhill's Travelling Workshop for Ecological Medicine' NOTE - this £250 covers the whole party for the whole day - so if 10 people come, that is £25 each for the whole day, if 16 people come that is about £16 each for the whole day.
- Arrange for people to come – as many or as few as you like.
- Send me details of venue and where I can park my campervan (not too far away from the venue!). Again, please email me.
