Tammy Robertson, RN, BSN

Food for Life Instructor

Tammy Robertson is a registered nurse with a Bachelor of Science in nursing, RN BSN from Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona. Tammy worked in the hospital setting as a floor nurse and after several years of working in orthopedics and trauma, became disillusioned with seeing the same patients coming in, having been admitted to the hospital for treatment of chronic diseases of lifestyle and diet. She felt unable to get to the root cause of the problem and began to believe that working in the hospital was not the way to help people achieve health. Treatment with pills and procedures was not going to prevent or treat chronic disease, addressing root cause was the method to achieve optimal health. It was then that Tammy made the decision to leave nursing in the hospital setting and go to an area where she could have more time to spend with her patients in order to educate and treat root cause of chronic disease. She went to work in an outpatient integrative oncology clinic. It was there she discovered what she never learned in all of her nursing education and experience, the link between diet and chronic disease, especially cancer. In order to better serve her patients at the clinic, she immersed herself in becoming educated in lifestyle medicine, specifically disease and dietary choices. She and her family, including her beloved chihuahua, went vegan in 2014 after spending an entire holiday weekend watching documentaries on health, the environment and the animals. The only regret she says she has is not having done it sooner! It has always been Tammy’s passion to help others by teaching and advocacy and being exemplary in true health, compassion, vitality and joy for life. Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food is her lifestyle motto.
