Erin Elizabeth has been working in the health industry for over 25 years, starting in her teens working for a green non-profit where she worked for four years during college, then later training with Bikram, the guru who started hot yoga and founding a Raw Foods Retreat Center. Originally from Chicago, Erin now spends most of her time in Florida, with her partner Dr. Mercola exploring the latest raw restaurants, hiking, reading, animal rescue, promoting green living (all solar) and studying investigative journalism. She has overcome Lyme Disease, thyroid problems, adrenal fatigue, allergies and weight gain, and shares her experiences with the world through her website Health Nut News, recently released an eBook and short documentary. Erin attributes a great part of her healing to keeping a positive attitude and perspective, and encourages others suffering from illness to accept and overcome. She tells her inspiring story today with Dr. Schaffner on the Essential Medcast.
