Common complaints from new patients...

“My current doctor won’t listen to my whole story.”

“My doctor won’t run the labs or imaging I need.” 

“My doctor dismissed my symptoms.”

“My doctor has given me meds and no other options.” 

“I have tried everything and nothing is working.” 

Dr. Ellerie didn’t want to be a doctor until she learned about Naturopathic medicine.  After working as a Biomedical Engineer in hospitals she became disillusioned with conventional medicine. Believing in a better way for patients to regain health, she wanted to be part of the solution not part of the system. When she discovered Naturopathic medicine she decided to become a doctor. Many people think holistic medicine is ‘alternative’ but in reality holistic medicine looks at the foundations of health (diet, stress management, water intake, sleep) and then goes beyond to understand why the body is in a state of imbalance. Instead of alternative medicine, Naturopathic medicine could be called ‘common sense medicine’. 

What is patient centered holistic medicine?

By treating patient holistically using both modern medicine and traditional medicine and using Eastern and Western philosophies in holistic healing, SLO Naturopathic & Acupuncture focuses on identifying root causes of health imbalances as well as symptomatically treating. The goal isn’t to suppress the body, but to create an environment in which the body can heal. It’s important that you feel better too! 

We believe in actively listening to a patient’s whole story. Having multiple systems of medicine means there’s a lot more treatment options than conventional medicine. Naturopathic patients are given holistic treatments that include dietary and nutrition advice, stress management techniques, nutraceuticals, herbalism, homeopathy and lifestyle changes. Other options are available when it comes to labwork. Both common and specialty functional labwork that looks deeper into digestion, hormones, food intolerances, detox issues, and nutrient status are available at SLO Naturopathic.
