SEEKING HEALTH WAS BORN OUT OF NECESSITY
There is a fundamental approach required to support our bodily systems which is lost to symptomatic “treatment” focused on the suppression of symptoms versus the promotion of health. There is a reason it is called “healthcare” yet, given how it is currently managed, it should be called “illcare”.
If one supports their bodily systems, especially their digestion and mental health with pure, highly absorbable, well-formulated nutrients, the ability to remain healthy and vital significantly increases. We want your foundation rock-solid and we provide the tools to do so.
We believe the root cause for many health conditions and symptoms stem from ineffective digestion, environmental exposures, poor diet and lack of a healthy social outlet and inlet. Once digestion is restored and optimized with the best probiotics, digestive enzymes, stomach acid and intestinal repair nutrients, one is then able to absorb nutrients from food and from quality multivitamins. Once environmental exposures are reduced and determined, one is then able to reduce toxic burden which then frees up nutrients to work in promoting health and preventing disease. Once diet is optimized, nutrients flood in, energy increases, blood sugar stabilizes and the immune system balances.
Once a social outlet and inlet are created, the parasympathetic nervous system regains control over the reactive “fight or fight” sympathetic nervous system which preserves countless nutrients to be used proactively and in a protective manner versus being wasted on over-production of stress hormones.
Seeking Health provides supplements because we believe in order to remain healthy in our toxic, high stress environment, one must supplement with pure, well-formulated nutrients. If we lived in a carefree low-stress society with pure air, food, and water along with nutrient-rich soils, the need for supplementation would not be necessary. For those who think it is possible to get by without supplementation, I beg to differ and welcome discussion.
It is important for you to know that we do way more than provide supplements.
We educate you on how to approach your health through dietary, lifestyle, mental and nutritional needs. We have an ever-growing interactive Learning Center providing research articles, podcasts, videos, blog posts, presentations and radio shows.
We are here to see you get better and then stay better. Our true passion is prevention. If we can prevent disease through educating you and others how to build and maintain a solid foundation, then we’ve accomplished our goal.
Welcome to Seeking Health.
Ben Lynch, ND
I enjoy researching and discovering ways to resolve complex health problems. When not researching, you’ll find me spending time with my wife, Nadia, and three boys, Tasman, Mathew and Theo. We’re big into soccer, being outside, any type of water activity and traveling. Key travel highlights include working with Mother Teresa in Calcutta, sailing from Australia to Indonesia and working as a jackaroo on a 1.5 million acre cattle station in Outback Australia.
I enjoy hitting the Bellingham trails with my wife Samira, Ryder our newborn son, and his four-legged big brother Stanley the Boxer. The local golf courses, hockey rink, and wellness facilities provide attractive options to keep our commitment to Optimizing Life intact in the beautiful Northwest. Our family are full time “Seekers” incorporating various Seeking Health products such as Optimal Prenatal in our smoothies, Optimal Electrolytes before and during a work-out, and the chewable Optimal Multivitamin to get the morning going.

I joined the Seeking Health team in June of 2016 and love being with a company that focuses on wellness as much as my family and I do. Outside of work, you will find me in the hills outside of Bellingham training with my wife for our next ultra-marathon, or mountain biking with my kids on Galbraith Mountain. I take the Optimal Multivitamin Plus and the Optimal Protein powder to help make sure I am ready for whatever adventure is next.
Outside of the office I’m a mom of 2 amazing boys. We enjoy going on adventures of all kinds and make full use of the beautiful environment we live in. I supplement my family life with creating art, gardening, and horseback riding. Being a part of the Seeking Health team has been priceless for me in so many ways, topmost being the whole health/life balance that is supported. Photo credit goes to Sharon Grainger.
Aloha amigos, I help manage the Warehouse, Receiving, and FBA Amazon department here at Seeking Health. I grew up in the small town of Glacier, WA but now live in Bellingham and am loving every minute of it. In my free time I like to play indoor soccer, ultimate frisbee, hiking, tickling the ol’ piano keys and traveling. My favorite supplement to take is our Multivitamin Chewables because they are so easy to take.
Assistant Warehouse Lead
I'm the warehouse assistant lead which means I'm Matt's right-hand man. Together we ensure that 100% of the orders get shipped out in a timely and orderly fashion. When I'm not at work I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife, precious baby girl and my two lazy dogs. I'm a volunteer firefighter, Master Gardener and I enjoy juggling. I take the berry electrolyte powder, D3 liquid and my dogs like the fish oil capsules.
When I am not running around the warehouse fulfilling orders I can be found in the mountains snowboarding, hiking, camping or biking. I also love to skateboard, create art and practice yoga. I supplement my life with Optimal Iron, the Calcium Magnesium D3 Chewable and B-complex to help me feel vibrant and strong!
I specialize in fulfillment and love my job! When I’m not doing that, I love hanging out with my awesome coworkers, playing guitar, going to the arcade, and eating pizza (but not without the lactase drops first)! I’m really lucky to be a part of such an excellent team. My all-time supplements are the optimal multivitamin chewables and Active B12 with L-5 MTHF.
Operations – Purchasing
I was born and raised in Whatcom County and have grew up playing in the mountains and the ocean. I graduated from Western Washington University where I studied Business and Elementary Education. I enjoy playing soccer, riding my ATV, coaching youth sports and seeking new adventures with my family. Taking care of my body has always been a priority and I am grateful to work for a company that exemplifies this principle. I take a range of supplements from Active B12 to Zinc and take comfort in knowing these are pure, quality and well-formulated.
I was born and raised in western Washington and as a result, have developed a predictable but undying love for the geographical splendor and variety surrounding this corner of the continent. Inside of my office, I enjoy problem solving, research, tea and oranges that may or may not come all the way from China. Outside of the office, I enjoy those things too but also long walks, windstorms, bird watching, music and a good book.
Product Regulatory Specialist
I am thrilled to be working for a company where health, innovation, positivity, and collaboration are valued. After 18 years away from the Pacific Northwest, I am finally back home in Bellingham, WA where my husband and I were both born and raised. We are overjoyed to be raising our daughter in this awesome place. As a former collegiate track and field coach, running is still my stress relief method of choice. I also enjoy yoga, cooking, traveling and reading.
Product Education Specialist
I am a graduate of Western Washington University with a BS in Psychology. I enjoy spending time with my friends in the mountains, water and artsy downtown of Bellingham, WA. One of my biggest passions is full body health. I fell in love with strength and wellness after learning of its importance in my own life. My hobbies are singing, art, acting, cooking healthy meals and yoga.
Outside of work a typical day for me is filled with writing music for my band The Mountain Flowers. I love going down to Bellingham bay, or driving around Chuckanut Mountain listening to music in my car. I currently work in the wholesale department at Seeking Health, but I have done everything from shipping and receiving, to representing Seeking Health at conferences around the country, and sound engineering for our annual conference SHEICON. My favorite Seeking Health product is the Optimal Electrolyte Orange flavor.
I’m from where the prairie meets the woods, the border of North Dakota and Minnesota and have been living in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 5 years. I’m a trained herbalist of 4 years and student of Ayurvedic practitioner KP Khalsa, gardener and farmer. Our magnesium line of products is a valuable addition to my materia medica as a way to target the common deficiency.
