Dr Elisabeth Philipps PhD, BSc Hons, BSc Nutr Med
Elisabeth is a neuropharmacologist and Functional Medicine nutritional therapist with over 18 years experience. She runs a thriving health consultancy (www.hartwellnutrition.co.uk) in North Bucks/South Northants specialising in nutritional neurology, where she provides expert opinion for private clients, corporate business programmes, the national media, specialist healthcare publications and health companies. Elisabeth’s extensive academic training includes a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science from Kings College London, a PhD in neuropharmacology from Oxford University and a BSc in Nutritional Medicine, which combined means she has a huge wealth of knowledge and experience in translating medical and scientific research into straightforward and achievable clinical outcomes to improve health, performance and recovery.
Elisabeth’s passion for all things neuroscience now encompasses the world of cannabidiol (CBD). She is a leading expert in the mechanisms of action and applications of this hemp-based product that has been causing a health revolution in the last couple of years and specialises in debunking the myths surrounding this natural plant-based product. Elisabeth was thrilled that CBD was legalised and placed on the permitted substance list by the World Anti-Doping Association (WADA) banned substance list in January 2018. She now conducts clinical research into its many uses and actively promotes quality CBD products in professional sport, as she has seen first hand how CBD products can support the recovery of athletes.
Dr Elisabeth Philipps will be presenting alongside professional rugby players George Kruis and Dom Day about the research hand use of CBD for elite sports performance in the Future Performance session of Elite Sport Expo 2020.
