Insulite Health formed in 2015 from Insulite Laboratories, a company that was established in 2001 in Boulder, Colorado USA, to research, develop and test a scientifically based, multi-layered approach to address the problems associated with PCOS. Reversing this condition requires a complete, specialized system which incorporates:
- Potent nutraceuticals*
- A nutrition plan tailored to meet your special needs
- An exercise program designed to increase insulin sensitivity
- A component that deals with cravings, which you may suffer from without being aware
- An extensive support network which includes coaching and personal advice on the most effective ways to manage each condition.
In addition to a caring approach to our clients, our business methodology encompasses these basic tenets:
- We are dedicated to healing customers first. It is our firm belief that transforming the health of women will drive the company to success.
- Insulite Health recognizes that a single pill cannot heal the conditions caused by PCOS. To heal from the symptoms of PCOS, women must embark on a systematic, scientifically-sound approach such as ours.
- Insulite Health has carved out an innovative niche in the health care community. We have positioned ourselves in the middle ground between the doctor’s office and the hospital. Today, a person may only get to spend minimal time with their doctor (the U.S. average is approximately seven minutes) while learning what to do about their condition. The next time their medical issues receive concentrated attention could be when complications send them to the hospital. Insulite Health has set out to be the intermediary between the two scenarios, offering our customers the ability to take control of their lives and health to prevent or delay the need for hospitalization.
- Healing through Knowledge sustains our Customer Service and Outreach programs. Any individual suffering from an Insulin Resistance-related condition – not just Insulite clients – can receive appropriate guidance from the Insulite Consulting & Advisory Teams.
- Insulite Health aims to build community through our web sites and support networks with information and help that is of real meaning and value to our visiting readers.
- Excellence defines every element of Insulite Health.
- Our goal is to create a healing, joyful, and productive environment for the Insulite team.

Lindsay Chandler, PCOS Food Advocate for Insulite Health
Lindsay has a bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis in Drawing and Painting. While in collage she worked in customer service and sales while always having an interest in health and fitness. After meeting her husband in 2009 Lindsay relocated to the bay area of California and connected with Robin in her personal nutrition business, Juvenescence. There she began to have a better understanding of how food impacts the body and slowly began her journey of healing.
After having her first child she began down a path of real self healing. During most of her life she struggled with weight gain, digestive issues, irregular periods, acne, joint pain and fatigue. She knew that it was time to make big changes after having her first child and trying to conceive her second. After getting a PCOS diagnosis at the age of 32 she began looking for more answers on how to heal naturally and became reconnected with Robin and introduced to the Insulite System. After only 30 days on the program she had her first regular period. After 45 days on the program she ovulated naturally (after 5 failed attempts with Clomid). At 10 weeks on the program she found out she was pregnant with her second child.
Lindsay has used the 5 Element System to take control of her PCOS symptoms pre-pregnancy, during pregnancy and post pregnancy. She no longer struggles form major weight fluxes, acne, digestive issues or fatigue. She implements all aspects of the system with a strong emphasis on element number 2 – Food as medicine. The Insulite system not only blessed our family with our second but after 6 months back on the system she became pregnant with her 3 rd child and had her most heartiest pregnancy yet!
Lindsay has a passion for being in the kitchen. Making healthy delicious food is a priority. Teaching her children how to cook and how to make better food choices is important to her. If its creating new favorite dishes or recreating comforting classics, making PCOS friendly food that the whole family can enjoy keeps her tummy full and her body happy!
