Hi! My name is Lindsay Christensen and I am a clinical nutritionist and freelance health writer living in the Denver metro area. My passions for nutrition, ancestral health, and functional medicine grew out of my personal experience with a serious chronic illness in my early twenties, which I recovered from using ancestral dietary and lifestyle principles. The clinical nutrition services I offer through my business, Ascent to Health, are the culmination of the knowledge I have gained through my healing journey.
In 2016, I graduated as Valedictorian and Summa Cum Laude with my B.S in Biomedical Science and an Emphasis in Nutrition from National University of Health Sciences. I am currently in my final semester of graduate school, in the M.S. in Human Nutrition program at the University of Bridgeport, where I am a member of the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society.
In my clinical practice, I create nutrition programs for my clients that draw upon cutting-edge science, including nutritional biochemistry and nutrigenomics, the dietary wisdom of our ancestors, and the rhythms of nature. I frequently employ functional medicine testing, including NutrEval, GI MAP, and intestinal permeability testing. Ascent to Health is a virtual practice, but I also have a physical location at The Pratt Clinics in Louisville, Colorado. In addition to my clinical nutrition practice, I am a busy freelance health writer. I have worked as a researcher and writer for Chris Kresser for nearly two years and have also been published in Paleo Magazine and Well Being Journal.
I derive great inspiration for my work from my love of nature and outdoor adventure. Outside of work, I can be found rock climbing, trail running, hiking, backpacking, and skiing. I hope to eventually incorporate sports nutrition into my practice so that I can work with mountain athletes, including climbers, ultra-endurance athletes, skiers, and alpinists!
