Dr Sarah Myhill qualified from the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, London, since when she has worked continuously in NHS general and private practice. She has a special interest in treating chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) and has seen over 8,000 CFS patients. She has also given evidence to two government working parties and is regularly interviewed for TV and radio. Dr Myhill co-authored three original papers investigating mitochondrial dysfunction as a central pathophysiological lesion in ME/CFS and is the author of five highly acclaimed books. She served for a number of years on the committee of the British Society for Ecological Medicine and is one of their accredited practitioners.


Eija Pirinen is an Adjunct Professor of Molecular Medicine at the University of Helsinki, Finland. Her research focuses on understanding molecular mechanisms behind diseases with genetic and acquired mitochondrial abnormalities. Her ultimate goal is to develop novel mitochondrial activating treatments and she is currently investigating vitamin B3 as a mitochondrial booster.
She received her PhD in Molecular Medicine at the University of Eastern Finland in 2009, worked in  Switzerland for four years and in 2015 came back to run her own laboratory at the University of Helsinki, when she received the prestigious Academy Research Fellowship.


Dr Jenny Goodman qualified from Leeds University Medical School in 1982, and has been practising Nutritional and Environmental Medicine for the last 20 years. She has a special interest in pre-conception care, and in working with children.  She has lectured extensively in Adult Education, as she believes passionately in demystifying medical and nutritional knowledge and bringing it to the wider public. She is the author of “Staying Alive in Toxic Times: A Seasonal Guide to Lifelong Health”, published in Jan 2020 by the Yellow Kite imprint of Hodder & Stoughton.


Dr Rodney Adeniyi-Jones MRCP(UK): After 10 years in hospital medicine, with a background in endocrinology and diabetes care, Dr Adeniyi-Jones moved into integrated and functional practice. Apart from practising good clinical medicine, his practice encompasses homeopathy, manual medicine, neuromuscular biofeedback, nutritional medicine, herbal complexes, intravenous therapies (vitamin and mineral, chelation therapy, amino-acid neurotransmitter therapy and phospholipid therapy), pulsed magnetic field treatment, microcurrent electrotherapy and mind-body medicine. Although effective for difficult medical conditions, he find greatest satisfaction in helping people to prevent illness, to stay ‘younger’ and enjoy maximum wellness and energy for much longer than seems possible. He has been in full time private practice for more than 30 years.


Mark Adams MSC is a dedicated Clinical Biochemist with over 35 years’ experience in Laboratory Medicine. He has worked in the NHS and the Independent sector as a Clinical Biochemist and has held several Senior Managerial positions within Hospital Pathology. He resigned from his last position as Head of Pathology at The Hospital of St John & St Elizabeth in 2015 to take some time to write a book and refurbish a house in France. He joined Biolab as Laboratory Director in the summer of 2019.


Rachel Nicoll PhD trained as a nutritionist but is now a medical researcher and lecturer. She has contracts in Umea University Sweden, where she is researching diabetes, and Helsinki University Finland where she is researching mitochondrial function in weight loss. She is a regular lecturer in the UK, presenting on environmental medicine at various schools of nutrition, at events run by supplement companies and at other conferences. She served 5 years on the committee of the British Society for Ecological Medicine (BSEM), where she organised and presented at a number of events.
