“Starting ION, in 1984, is what I’m most proud of. We had a really tough first ten years establishing the profession of nutritional therapy against all odds...But now it is. Loud and clear, thanks to the wonderful team at ION who have made the bold vision of 35 years ago come to fruition.” 

Patrick Holford, Founder
