About Lisa Murphy Taylor
A native Chicagoan, Lisa acquired her bachelors in nursing in 1992 and began her nursing career at Loyola University Medical Center in the Neurosurgical/trauma intensive care unit. This is where her deep interest in the brain and neurosciences began. She then worked in the department of Neurology at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation as a nurse clinician, with two veteran Neurologists, gaining unique knowledge from very complicated chronic neurological disease states. After being a stay at home mom raising four children, Lisa then returned to the workforce in the areas of chronic pain and Integrative Medicine. This is where she acquired full respect and understanding for the role food and nutrition plays, not only in living healthfully, but how nutrition can quell cellular inflammation; the basis for chronic disease. Lisa earned her certificate in integrative nutrition from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and is currently in the second year of her Master’s program at the University of Western States. She is getting her Masters of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine. Much of the work she does with clients is based in functional medicine, as this form of medicine gets to the root of why disease states occur and what biological systems become imbalanced. She assists clients (utilizing neurofeedback) to make changes in food and lifestyle returning balance and optimal health.
