Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride

Dr. Campbell-McBride graduated with Honours as a Medical Doctor in 1984 from Bashkir Medical University in Russia. She gained a Postgraduate Degree in Neurology and completed a second Postgraduate Degree in Human Nutrition at Sheffield University, UK.

In 2004 she published a book Gut And Psychology Syndrome. Natural Treatment Of Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Depression And Schizophrenia. The book explores the GAPS Nutritional Protocol, highly successful in treating patients with learning disabilities and other mental problems. A second edition was published in 2010, and has been translated into sixteen languages.

In her clinic Dr Campbell-McBride works with patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, arrhythmia, stroke and other complications of atherosclerosis. She is acutely aware of the confusion about nutrition and these conditions, spurring an intensive study into this subject. The result of this study is her book Put Your Heart in Your Mouth! What Really is Heart Disease and what can we do to Prevent and Even Reverse it. Dr Campbell-McBride is a Member of The Society of Authors, The British Society for Environmental Medicine, and a Board Member of the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Dr Tom O’Bryan

When it comes to getting healthy, Dr. Tom O’Bryan’s goal for you is ‘Making It Easy To Do the Right Thing’. As an internationally recognized, admired and compassionate speaker focusing on food sensitivities, environmental toxins, and the development of autoimmune diseases, Dr. Tom’s audiences discover that it is through a clear understanding of how you got to where you are, that you and your Dr. can figure out what it will take to get you well.

Dr. O’Bryan is considered a ‘Sherlock Holmes’ for chronic disease and teaches that recognizing and addressing the underlying mechanisms that activate an immune response is the map to the highway towards better health. He holds teaching Faculty positions with the Institute for Functional Medicine and the National University of Health Sciences. He has trained and certified tens of thousands of practitioners around the world in advanced understanding of the impact of wheat sensitivity and the development of individual autoimmune diseases.

Dr Alex Richardson

Dr Alex Richardson is a Visiting Senior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford, and the founder and director of Food and Behaviour Research, a charity founded in 2003 to develop and promote scientific research into the links between nutrition and human behaviour.

Alex Richardson is well known for her research into the impact of nutrition and in particular, of omega-3 fatty acids on behaviour, learning and mood. Nevertheless, her activities are very varied, including research in the areas of epidemiology, genetics, brain imaging, biochemistry, nutrition, physiology and psychology; as well as other writing, lecturing, teaching and consultancy work.

Her main areas of research centre on:

  • The role of nutrition in brain development and function, and its effects on behaviour, learning and mood.
  • The biology of individual differences in personality, perception and cognition, particularly in relation to neurodevelopmental and psychiatric disorders.
