Robyn COSFORD, Prof, Australia
Prof. Robyn Cosford is Chair of the Board for Children’s Health Defense Australia, having been a functional medicine practitioner for over 35 years. As a mother of five, she is passionate about the health of children and the mother- small child relationship in particular.
Robyn was grandfathered into Australasian College on Nutritional and Environmental Medicine (ACNEM) by Professor Ian Brighthope in 1996 and was a researcher with University of Newcastle into the metabolic and stool microbiotia patterns in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism and ADHD. It was at this time that she began researching and treating abnormalities in gut microbiome in various disease patterns and patterns of hidden infections. A senior lecturer for ACNEM over many years, Robyn has presented at numerous conferences to medical and non-medical audiences alike across Australia and abroad, including the Defeat Autism Now Conference in the USA. In 2021 she retired her medical license as a result of the Covid situation and has since been speaking in interviews, at rallies, public forums and conferences, whilst continuing to provide integral care by empowering people to take back control of their own health as a Lifestyle and Wellness Consultant. Robyn has long been working in the field of vaccine injured children, with special interest in children’s neurodevelopmental disorders, and Autism in particular. Naturally, as a result, she has been following Children’s Health Defense for many years and is excited and honoured to be Chair and a Director on the board of the new Australian Chapter.
