After years of health issues plaguing her family, Dr. Ellen wanted to understand the underlying causes rather than just treat the symptoms. Through addressing root issues with appropriate diet, nutritional supplementation, optimizing detoxification, and making lifestyle improvements, Dr. Ellen was able to reverse her diagnosis of Lupus, an autoimmune condition, as well as heal from chronic infections. She was also able to improve behavioral concerns and academic weaknesses in several of her children and restore health to all of her family members.
Friends and other family members noticed the significant improvements in their health and requested a consultation. In 2011, Vine Healthcare, LLC was officially founded.
Dr. Ellen and Dr. Scott are experts in identifying and treating environmental toxicities, chronic infections, and complex medical conditions.
