As we continue our Wellness Week, I am so excited
to welcome Dr. Erin Ellis, Naturopathic Doctor.
Dr. Ellis Shares :
In 2010 I was diagnosed with a rare form of
Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 31. I never thought in a million
years I would have been diagnosed with cancer at such a young age,
but it was the turning point in my life. I always wanted to be a
doctor, but gave up on those dreams because I was sick of being in
school, and instead worked in the bar and restaurants, but always
knew I could do and be more.
After 6 rounds of chemotherapy, a positive attitude
with a side of determination and sass I became a survivor.
Receiving this diagnosis and kicking its butt gave me the drive,
the motivation and determination to get out of my own way and
become that doctor that I always wanted to be. Not only did it give
me my defining purpose in life, but I learned a lot about myself
and really how strong I truly was.
Having had a cancer diagnosis at such a young age,
my mission and passion now is to empower those to take control of
their health now before it is too late. This diagnosis proved to me
that life is too short to feel sub-optimal and given the right
tools, your body has the innate ability to heal itself.
