Listen now
I polled people on IG last month and almost 80% of people that saw my story said they felt like they have food sensitivities. So, that’s a problem because once you dive into the intricacies of that there is a lot of nuances. So to help with this & answer the question I get in so many different flavors each week, I’m hosting a live training and Q&A session called “What should I eat? Answering your questions about food reactions and inflammation”. You can register at christabiegler.com/foodreactions This week I talk to the brilliant and humble Tim Hyatt, ND of Biogenic Nutrition.

TIM: As an innovator who enjoys discovery, research, and science, Dr. Timothy Hyatt loves to create and improve products that help people. It was his frustration with conventional medicine’s treatment of his mother when she came down with a life-ending chronic illness that turned his thoughts to alternative medicine. Dr. Hyatt earned his doctorate in naturopathic medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 2006. From there he began working in the biotech industry where he was directly involved in product development, research, and sales and marketing. . His first product idea was an amino acid formula that improves symptoms of brain-based disorders and, in late 2011, after moving his practice to Oregon, he founded Biogenic Nutrition other partners and currently serves as the company’s president.  WHERE TO FIND DR.
