Principal, School of Modern Naturopathy
Linda Lazarides has worked as a food doctor since 1987, including three years for the British National Health Service. In 1997 she founded the British Association for Nutritional Therapy---a major professional organization. She now teaches naturopathy and nutritional therapy by worldwide distance learning, through her acclaimed one-year practitioner training course (see website link).
Linda's philosophy is to show how the original old-school naturopathy is proven by modern scientific knowledge. By combining the two, we can get the best of both worlds.

In 2000 she gave evidence on behalf of the Nutritional Therapy Council, at the House of Lords consultation process on Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the UK.

In 1996 Linda wrote an outline syllabus for the first university course in Nutritional Therapy at the University of Westminster.
