Lillian started Further Food after watching her father and friends struggle with chronic illness, including diabetes, IBS, and Crohn’s. She wanted to help them heal using holistic solutions but couldn’t find a trusted resource, so she decided to build one. Lillian spent the next 2 years crowdsourcing the stories of thousands of people with chronic health conditions who had healed themselves with lifestyle changes and supplementation. This attracted the attention of holistic health experts who were drawn to her vision for Further Food: to bring the proven, ancient healing practices from Eastern medicine to our busy, modern lives. Today, a select group of leading holistic doctors and scientists work with Lillian to create nutritional products that work, that they themselves want to use.
Lillian is proud to have built a women-owned business that inspires and helps millions eat better and further their health, naturally. She is a surfer and certified yoga instructor, and as a life-long ocean’s lover, she is committed to making Further Food a leading eco-conscious supplement company. She lives in San Francisco with her husband and Further Food mascot, a yorkie-poo, named Marie-Louise.
