Book description

Some phenomena in medicine and psychology remain unexplained by current theory. Chronic fatigue syndrome, repetitive strain injury and irritable bowel syndrome, for example, are all diseases or syndromes that cannot be explained in terms of a physiological abnormality. In this intriguing book, Michael E. Hyland proposes that there is a currently unrecognised type of illness which he calls 'dysregulatory disease'. Hyland shows how such diseases develop and how the communication and art of medicine, good nursing care, complementary medicine and psychotherapy can all act to reduce the dysregulation that leads to dysregulatory disease. The Origins of Health and Disease is a fascinating book that develops a novel theory for understanding health and disease, and demonstrates how this theory is supported by existing data, and how it explains currently unexplained phenomena. Hyland also shows how his theory leads to new testable predictions that, in turn, will lead to further scientific advancement and development.


‘Michael Hyland, in [The] Origins of Health and Disease, creates a meta-theory of health and disease, a synthesis that incorporates the notions of mind, brain, body, and environment. This synthesis, based on a scientific theory, explains many of the mysteries of how humans heal. This is a book that will challenge the reader to move beyond conceptualizations of their discipline and should be read and understood by all physicians, psychologists, social workers, counselors - anyone involved in healing.’

Bruce E. Wampold - Professor and Chair, Department of Counseling Psychology and Clinical Professor, Psychiatry, University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA

‘A clever idea written with a combination of scientific disciplines that is both thoughtful and provocative, as well as being blindingly obvious when you read it!'

George Lewith - Professor in Health Research, University of Southampton

‘From a tangled skein of data, Michael Hyland has woven a rich theoretical tapestry with wide ranging implications of health research, clinical practice, and daily living. It provides a wealth of cogent and testable hypotheses concerning medical conditions that are currently, at best, poorly understood.’

Irving Kirsch - Professor Emeritus, University of Hull and University of Connecticut Lecturer, Harvard Medical School
