Lisa C. Scranton, MS, RDN, LD
FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION CONSULTANT
Lisa is a specialist in functional nutrition therapies, with an emphasis on autoimmune and gastrointestinal illnesses. Her approach has evolved from practicing conventional dietetics to understanding food as powerful medicine for chronic illness. Lisa received her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Purdue University and Master’s in Food Science and Human Nutrition from Michigan State University.
Autoimmune disease, IBS, and food sensitivities inspired Lisa to discover the root causes of her own problems by studying basic biochemistry and functional nutrition. She became an IFN Certified Practitioner through the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy in 2018.
Working in the office of one of the pioneers of Functional Medicine in the US, Karyn Shanks MD, has been another amazing learning opportunity, and Lisa gained valuable experience over five years helping clients identify their own root causes of chronic disease.
Lisa is passionate about working with clients with chronic complex illness, especially the gut problems, food sensitivities, and autoimmune disease that are often key dysfunctions. She understands that real, whole, nutrient-dense food is the foundation of health, and that each person has unique requirements for food and nutrients. Lisa knows that the journey to healing requires perseverance, hope, awareness, and a dedicated health-care team, as well as delicious, nourishing food. She would love to work with you on your journey toward health.
