Designs for Health was founded in 1989 by nutritionist Linda Lizotte, R.D, CDN and Jonathan Lizotte, company CFO. Designs for Health originally was composed of a team of nutritionists who focused exclusively on providing nutrition counseling services for the treatment of a variety of health conditions. The logical expansion of individual counseling success was the creation of an advanced nutrition training program for practitioners who desired to integrate nutrition into their traditional practices. Finally, DFH developed their extensive supplement line to service their growing client base.
Because DFH was founded on the successes of patient treatment outcomes, before they ever developed products to produce those outcomes, the company’s motto has always been Science First. To this day nutritionists with ongoing clinical experiences still shape the direction of Designs for Health.
The DFH mission statement is to foster knowledge among health professionals and the public that natural therapies exist to prevent and treat a wide range of ailments, and to facilitate the integration of scientifically valid research supporting these therapies in clinical practice.
