Hi, you can call me Dr. Ellerie! I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor back in SLO to start my own practice. After graduating from CalPoly in 2008, I left San Luis Obispo to pursue a career in Biomedical Engineering (BME). During my short stint as a BME, I felt like there was a different way that medicine could help the healing process, one that was less about suppressing symptoms and more about addressing root causes and lifestyle changes. I went back to school in Portland Oregon to earn degrees in Naturopathic and Chinese Medicine.
Naturopathic medicine changed my entire perspective of the intrinsic power of the body to heal, given the right conditions. I personally discovered the power of naturopathic medicine when I discovered my root causes for acne and eczema. It felt like a miracle when my skin cleared clear. If my skin flairs, I usually know the reason why it flared and what treatments are necessary. My favorite part of my job is educating patients on how their body works and empowering them to control their health.
Dr. Ellerie is only taking telemedicine clients for Naturopathic Medicine and Chinese Herbalism the summer of 2022. She will open her doors in a new space in the autumn and offer more hands-on opportunities. Stay tuned for the details!
