nDash Writer Profile for James Lyons


Expert Health and Medical Writer

About Me

I'm a holistic nutritionist (BHSc Nutritional Medicine) with over ten years of experience in medical and health writing. I can provide relevant, engaging and researched content and copy for your blog, website, industry magazine, or print product.


"Great working with James! Responds well to feedback and happy to get the project done to my specification. I will definitely be using him again for future projects!"

"[James] had very good communication with me and the quality of the comments on my writing were to the point and helped to finish my book."

"James listened to my full health history and talked about my symptoms as a sign of deeper problem, not just a standalone, aesthetic issue. He provided me with a simple and easy-to-follow diet and a few supplements, and worked with me when I suggested things might not work with my lifestyle. As a result of my diet changes I’ve seen more improvement than my skin than ever before. I couldn’t be happier!! James’s work isn’t just a prescription, it’s a relationship. I felt seen as a person, instead of just another pimply youth in a line of pimply youths. He treats the whole body with care and attention, not just the symptoms. Highly recommended :)"

Services I provide:

+ Writing articles that are genuinely helpful, backed by research, and search engine optimised. My writing will boost traffic to your blog or website, and convert visitors into customers whether your audience is the general public, physicians, or experts. Ghostwriting, copywriting, and guest blogging available.

+ Technical writing for the medical industry, including nutritional, pharmaceutical, naturopathic and herbal medicine B2B information sheets, literature reviews and research summaries.

+ Editing creative writing and commercial content to US or UK English style standards while retaining the original "spark" you wrote it with. My passion is creative writing, so I understand the value of gentle but constructive editing that supports the project (and the writer).

+ Academic research and writing on medical, nutritional, herbal medicine, and pathophysiology topics.


Thank you for visiting my profile. I hope we can work together soon!
