A doctor explores what farming can teach us about nurturing ourselves Do the microbes in the soil communicate with the microbes in our bodies? Why does a dirty farm offer protection from allergies while a dirty urban apartment does not? What can we learn about "good" stress from pastured hens? How can a pest management system inspire a radical new approach to cancer treatment? What can cows teach parents about raising healthy eaters? What kind of impact does urban farming have on crime rates? These may not sound like typical questions for a family physician to consider, but in Farmacology, Daphne Miller, M.D., ventures out of her medical office and travels to seven innovative family farms around the country on a quest to discover the hidden connections between how we care for our bodies and how we grow our food. Miller also seeks out the perspectives of noted biomedical scientists and artfully weaves in their insights and research, along with stories from her own medical practice. Farmacology offers a profound new approach to healing, combined with practical advice for how to treat disease and maintain wellness.
