Jeremy became interested in his field while at Dartmouth, where his first rowing coach, Scott Armstrong, introduced him to the concept of mindfulness. Because of Scott’s coaching to believe in himself, Jeremy, who was considered too short to be a champion heavyweight rower, succeeded in his ambitions to row for Dartmouth. Yoga then took him to compete at international level, representing Canada at the World Rowing Championships, and Oxford in the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race.
It was an allergy to his mother’s cat that got him interested in internal medicine, something that led to his interest in research.
These experiences, to a large extent, paved the way to his achieving a PhD in the Philosophy of Medicine. Jeremy’s subsequent research has been widely reported by global media.
An Oxford researcher with over 80 publications, a number of teaching awards and a classic textbook, Jeremy Howick’s latest book, and Amazon #1 seller is titled ‘Dr You’ and is focussed on the bodies natural ability to heal itself based upon actual scientific research. A world-renowned placebo researcher and his work has been featured in The Times and The Washington Post, as well as on Sky News, and the BBC.

'Read this breakthrough book!' (Doctor You) Throw away your statins, painkillers and antidepressants and pick up this book to find out how you can harness the body's natural powers to heal itself. Doctor You contains the first hard scientific evidence to show that some so-called alternative or natural treatments are not only cheaper than industrially produced drugs and lacking the harmful side effects, they are also equally effective. Written using the latest, high quality, conventional evidence Doctor You arms you with knowledge that will empower you to make the right choices about what drugs to take, what drugs to give your children, and when you should let your body do its thing.'
"One in ten people in developed countries take antidepressants. Millions of boys who can't sit still in school are prescribed methamphetamines. Modern medicine has been overused. Skyrocketing global healthcare costs render this overuse of medicine increasingly unaffordable. The wonders of modern medicine have also obscured the body's ability to heal itself. Your body produces its own drugs that can treat pain as well as drugs, cure some joint problems as well as a surgeon, and treat most mild depression as well as a psychologist."
