Functional health and organic living in Middle Tennessee
Live Well Franklin exists to empower optimal health through deliberate nutrition, toxin-free living and expressing the joy of thriving on-purpose.
We sell practitioner-grade supplements, organic bath & body products, non-toxic cleaning products, industry-leading water filters and the most advanced air purifiers.
We curate our products deliberately and take great pride in offering brands that you can find in our own homes. If we wouldn't use it ourselves, we won't sell it. And we're always evaluating new options to be sure that our lineup features the most current formulas and research.
MEET THE TEAM
OWNER | FUTURE FDN-P | CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Chad is currently studying to be a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and is passionate about helping people optimize their health so they can reach their greatest potential. He picked the FDN program because of their commitment to evaluating the complete person through functional lab tests, extended conversation and lifestyle goals. This approach ensures that a person can see a thorough picture of the factors that contribute to their well-being instead of guessing or just treating symptoms.
After witnessing his wife’s transformation during a 12-year health journey, he knew that he wanted to align all his creative and professional energy to help others experience the same breakthroughs. Chad became the new owner of Live Well Franklin in 2022 as a way to amplify the message of functional health in Middle Tennessee.
Chad is also a Nashville-based photographer and continues to shoot commercial photo assignments throughout the United States but looks forward to aligning his photographic activity with the mission of Live Well Franklin.
Upon graduating from the Functional Diagnostic Nutrition program, Chad will focus on elite sports nutrition, high-performance health coaching and anti-aging.
ORDER FULFILLMENT | WEB SUPPORT | CHIEF ENCOURAGEMENT OFFICER
Jessica (friends call her Jess!) has been passionate about holistic and organic living for more than a decade. After experiencing a strenuous health journey over the past 13 years, she saw her biggest breakthroughs in 2019 after connecting with functional medicine practitioners that were able to connect the dots between her seemingly unrelated symptoms and guide her into a path of true healing.
Having recently experienced a series of big health wins, she’s excited to pour into the middle Tennessee community and encourage others who are navigating their own journey. She knows first-hand how overwhelming and tiring it can be to fight chronic illness and hopes to inspire others to persevere and be courageous in the face of uncertainty.
Jess is the one behind-the-scenes processing orders and helping with customer service. She always has a smile on her face and loves connecting with new friends. When she's not working on Live Well Franklin, you can find her at the hockey rink or enjoying a great cup of coffee.

The Live Well Story
Originally founded by Todd Garrett in 2017 as Franklin Family Pharmacy, the store rebranded as Live Well Franklin in 2021.
The Ziemendorf family became the new owners in September of 2022 and continues to be your partner in health by offering the highest quality natural health products, home-health tech and goods that inspire peace and contentment.
We get it, health journeys can be complex. That's why we're here - to be a source of relief and calm in your pursuit of abundant life. As we continue to grow, Live Well Franklin will be featuring consistent and current information that empowers your health journey and keeps you focused on the eternal perspective as you navigate modern life.
Supplements | Non-toxic Bath & Body
We only offer practitioner-grade brands that we would be proud to give our own families. In fact, Live Well Franklin exists because of the health triumphs we personally have enjoyed after years of medical adversity. We believe in the products we sell and in everyone's right to control their own health.
BATH & BODY
Feel great about the the products you put on your skin, in your hair and in your mouth. Our Bath & Body lineup is free from harsh chemicals and are tested to not only be safe but extremely effective.
Home Health Tech | Air | Water
Knowing that indoor air quality is proven to be TWO to FIVE times more polluted than outdoor air, and we as Americans spend 87% of our time indoors, it is more important than ever to focus on the air we breathe.
Likewise, our tap water is filled with chemicals, toxins and tons of yucky stuff, even if it's within legal limits. "Legal" doesn't mean "Healthy." Our lineup of water filtration products will ensure you are drinking, cooking and washing with the cleanest possible water. Not only are they NSF certified and 3rd party independent lab tested, we use (and love!) them in our own homes.
Art prints | Non-toxic cleaning
Your home is your sanctuary and the things that you choose to display directly enhance your mood and reflect your well-being.
We now carry art prints featuring the work of Tennessee photographer Chad Ziemendorf. This 'Golden Light Series' evokes a sense of hope, calm and a deep breath.
Fight dirt, bacteria and viruses with lethal force, but without harsh chemicals that jeopardize your family's health. We are passionate about curating home cleaning products that are free from toxic chemicals but ACTUALLY WORK.
Research, interviews and wisdom
LIVE WELL JOURNAL
We've heard it said that "We live in a time when knowledge is increasingly cheap and wisdom is increasingly expensive."
Our blog is an extention of our own search for authentic health and organic living. Instead of adding to the growing sea of information that simply competes for your attention, we create thoughtful content that equips you to navigate the complexites of our modern life.
