About Dr. Vivian Chen:

Dr. Vivian Chen is a UK-trained medical doctor with 15 years of clinical experience. Before moving to the San Francisco Bay area in the US, she was board-certified in the UK in both internal medicine and family practice.

Her world turned upside down when her daughter was hospitalized soon after being born with symptoms no doctor could figure out. Through conducting her research, she was able to help her daughter recover. She also realized that the many years of chronic fatigue, acne, and brain fog she had were due to environmental toxicity. This opened the world of root causes she had never considered before as a conventional medical doctor.

When she moved to San Francisco, she decided to make it her mission to help people reduce their toxin load because she believes environmental toxins to be one important root cause not enough doctors are talking about. She educates via her online platform, Plateful Health, and also co-founded a red light therapy company called LUMEBOX.
