Dr. John E. Lewis is past full-time and current voluntary Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. His work spans many years in the conduct of studies in nutrition, dietary supplements, exercise, medical devices, and health promotion leading to his co-founding of Nurish.Me. Dr. Lewis has been the CEO of his own academic research and educational enterprise for nearly the last two decades prior to leaving the University of Miami full-time. During his career, he raised or indirectly supported raising million of dollars in grants, gifts, and contracts for research and educational programs. He has been the principal investigator or co-investigator of over 40 different studies to date.
A primary stimulus for the origin of Nurish.Me occurred when Dr. Lewis ran his landmark study on how polysaccharides and other phytonutrients improved cognitive and immune functioning after 12 months in persons with Alzheimer’s dementia. His seminal publication in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, not only spurred him to consider leaving academics and pursue a science-based business, but also enabled him to be selected for a widely-acclaimed TEDxMiami talk about how nutrition could improve brain health. In addition to being an invited speaker at medical and scientific conferences all over the world, John has co-authored more than 170 peer-reviewed publications in some of the leading scientific journals, such as AIDS and Behavior, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, American Journal of Public Health, Nutrition and Cancer: An International Journal, Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences, Sports Medicine, Stroke, The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and The Gerontologist.
John embodies the vision and philosophy of Nurish.Me as a model of health and wellness by formulating and taking the company’s products, eating a whole-food, plant-based diet for over 21 years, and through a rigorous, daily exercise training program. John will continue to lead the Nurish.Me team with his insights and ideas into the application of clinical nutrition enhanced by specialized technology for the benefit of mankind.
