About Lisa Kamphuis, ARNP

Before opening her own practice in 2002, Lisa Kamphuis was a nurse practitioner in a family planning clinic, and subsequently in a traditional women’s health clinic. She saw beyond the 4-5 patients an hour schedule, an opportunity to teach her clients about preventative health using nutrition, supplements, herbs, and lifestyle approaches. Lisa uses a connection with her clients to personalize an individual plan, always with a team approach, empowering clients to listen to their body’s needs and messages.

Lisa holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Work from Iowa State University and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Iowa. She completed her Women’s Health Nurse Practitioner education through the Family Planning Council of Iowa. Lisa has studied Integrative Medicine since 1999. She has always had a passion for the power of nutrition, and has studied integrative medicine through countless conferences, workshops, and courses. She is continually expanding her knowledge base. She is an active member of the Association for Restorative Medicine, and is pursuing certification in Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) treatment.
