Erin’s interest in natural healing modalities stems from her first-hand experience using a variety of effective holistic interventions in her personal health journey. Erin was chronically ill for over 20 years, managing her symptoms through a pharmaceutical approach. When her health ultimately hit rock bottom, she looked to a more natural approach to healing. Drastically changing her diet and lifestyle, deploying detoxification strategies, and working with bodyworkers, herbalists, mind-body practitioners, and an Integrative Medicine Doctor enabled her to achieve optimal health after debilitating Lyme Disease, Epstein Barr Virus, a rare pancreatic disorder, and multiple autoimmune diseases had gone undiagnosed for years.
