Lisa Blahnik

I was born and raised in Beaver Dam, WI. Received my BBA from the University of WI-Whitewater in 1999. After college, I pursued a Masters in Eastern Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences. Then to all our family and friend’s surprise (even myself!) we followed our hearts to open up a Whole Body Health Clinic in Madison, WI. It’s been quite a journey…however, getting to know each of our patients and developing what I consider a “unique” relationship…because everyone feels like an extension of my family… has been such a blessing!

Everyone says the “key to a man’s heart is through his stomach” but that includes ME! I love to cook, try new recipes and foods that are  Nutrient Dense / Rich adding value to our health and future, “Most” of my recipes taste great, but I can admit I’m learning along the way.
