Dr Rangan Chatterjee is a practicing NHS GP. He is a member of the Royal Colleges of Physicians and the Royal College of General Practitioners. He holds a BSc Honours Degree in Immunology and is a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine. He passionately advocates and follows a philosophy that lifestyle and nutrition are first line medicine and the cornerstone of good health. He is dedicated to finding the root cause of ill health rather than simply suppressing symptoms with drugs. He uses his media profile to inspire the public that good health is achievable for all by following simple and practical lifestyle advice.
Dr Tamsin Lewis is a successful former GB elite athlete and through this experience learnt the importance of nutrition and lifestyle interventions in maximising optimal performance. In 2017, she founded Fibr Health which extended this ethos to health optimisation in a more general capacity and the journey of re-learning along a functional and integrative paradigm began. Having suffered herself from mental health problems from her teenage years and a severe head injury in her 20’s Tamsin’s passion to educate about the innate capacity of a correctly supported body to self heal is compelling.
After a 4 year hiatus from NHS practice — Tamsin returned post baby – to part-time practice, in order that she fulfill training years needed to reach consultant level but has increasingly become disillusioned by the heavy handed pharmaceutical approach to mental health encouraged within the NHS and the lack of resources deployed for lifestyle interventions.
Chris Kresser is the co-director of the California Center for Functional Medicine, the creator of ChrisKresser.com, and the New York Times best selling author of The Paleo Cure.

Chris was named one of the 100 most influential people in health and fitness by Greatist.com (along with Michelle Obama, Dr. Oz, Dr. Weil, Deepak Chopra and Dr. Mercola), and his blog is one of the top-ranked natural health websites in the world. He recently launched Kresser Institute, an organization dedicated to training functional medicine practitioners with an ancestral health perspective. Chris lives in Berkeley, California with his wife and daughter.
