Dr Tamsin Lewis
Dr Tamsin Lewis qualified with honours in Medicine & Surgery at Kings College London in 2004 intercalating a BSc in
NeuroScience and was awarded MRCPsych from the Royal College of Psychiatrists in 2009. She has since trained in
a functional medicine approach incorporating advanced nutritional principles and appropriate use of bio-identical
Tamsin practices integrative and lifestyle medicine, helping clients to redefine their health and discover their true
potential. Her main interest is in the optimisation of healthy hormonal function and recovery from the ‘burnout’
continuum. She works with busy, high achieving clients to improve their resilience and performance with a focus on
After years of training in the conventional medical paradigm, Tamsin became disillusioned with the ‘plaster’ approach
and pharmaceutical dogma which pervaded daily practice in primary and secondary care. A traumatic childhood
preceded years spent struggling with disordered eating/dysfunctional mood and addictive behaviours which attracted
a variety of conventional diagnoses and attempts to treat with pharmaceuticals.
“Your family has the measles - you have the rash” spoken by a doctor resonated profoundly to the 11year old Tamsin
- yet no effective system was in place to help navigate what this actually meant. We trust Doctors and a healthcare
system to fix disease yet they seemed ill equipped to do so when the boundaries of disease are a little blurred.
In her final year of medical school, Tamsin spent 3 days in a Coma after a severe head injury following a skiing
accident. The recovery from this TBI was slow, unpredictable, and plagued by questions to which conventional
medical dogma had no answer.
Building on ideas from Chris Kresser, Mark Hyman, Jeff Bland and Dr Sarah Myhill, and a friendship with Ben
Greenfield - Tamsin began analysing her own bloodwork and measuring specific biomarkers. Following her success
as an amateur, Tamsin began competing in triathlons, spending 4 years as an elite GB triathlete. In 2014 she won
Ironman UK as a professional at her first attempt at this distance - having never run a marathon prior.
Genes load the Gun. Environment pulls the trigger - Tamsin’s father, a former Professional cyclist, completed the
Tour De France 3 times and a five-time British Road Race Champion. Once Tamsin’s physiological health improved
she was able to maximize her genetic potential and success as an athlete ensued.
Spurred on by her own success and pressure from peers to share her remarkable story of overcoming adversity
Tamsin founded curoseven.com in 2013. This began as a performance optimisation and proactive health analysis
consultancy. The business model has since evolved and been refined as a result of client feedback and increasing
demand - the result of which is Fibr Health and its extraordinary Collaborative Team.
Tamsin’s passion and ‘raison d’être’ is to empower other people to redefine the way they think about health and find
their own journey towards optimal wellness. #BeTheBestYou
