● Is there a connection between microbes in the soil and in our bodies? ● Why does a dirty farm offer protection from allergies while a dirty urban apartment does not? ● What can pastured hens teach us about "good" stress and "bad" stress? ● How can a vineyard pest management system inspire more effective cancer treatment? ● What can cows teach us about raising healthy eaters? ● Can urban farms reduce neighborhood crime? These may not sound like typical questions for a family physician to consider, but in Farmacology, Daphne Miller, MD, 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Farm as medicine. A must-read for anyone who cares about their health. Mark Bittman
“While aimed at general readers, the author’s message is also appropriate for physicians and is made palatable by Miller’s persona and the avoidance of preachy smugness.” Kirkus Reviews
