Self-Help Tips From Dr Sarah Brewer

About GP, Medical Nutritionist And Self-Help Expert, Dr Sarah Brewer

Dr Sarah Brewer

Hi, I’m Dr Sarah Brewer, a registered doctor, registered nutritionist, registered nutritional therapist and the author of over 70 popular health books.

I’ve set up this website to share information, advice and my recommendations on the best healthcare products available to support a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Having worked as a GP, hospital doctor, health editor and a columnist for several national newspapers and magazines, I’ve tried and tested numerous healthcare products and formed strong opinions on which offer good value for money, and which are best filed in the bin.

Within these pages, I am sharing my top picks from all the products that cross my desk.

My Qualifications

I qualified from Cambridge University with degrees in Natural Sciences, Medicine and Surgery. I worked at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge for five years, where I looked after patients within the general medical, surgical and paediatric wards, as well as the liver transplant and intensive care units.

After qualifying as a general practitioner, I worked as a full-time GP principal in Plymouth, Devon, for five years, then returned to hospital medicine in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

During my career, I realised that many health problems are related to diet and lifestyle choices. As a result, I gained a Master’s degree in Nutritional Medicine from the University of Surrey. I now work in private practice but am not currently taking on new patients. If you have any health concerns, please consult your own doctor sooner rather than later.

I’ve set up this website to share my take on the best health and wellness products that you can use to help maintain good health. Feel free to leave comments so that other readers can also benefit from your personal experience, and please share any posts you find useful or interesting. Thank you.
