Episode 114 features Naturopathic Medical Doctor Dr. Erin Ellis and we speak with her about how getting and beating cancer sparked her drive to become a Naturopathic Medical Doctor and help others think differently about their health and wellness choices.
My pre-doctor work-life consisted of restaurant management, bartending, and serving for nearly 20 years, but life quickly changed in my early 30s.
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. To say I was scared was an understatement, but it honestly was the defining moment 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.
After graduation from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2017, I worked at a naturopathic urgent care in N. Scottsdale seeing medical cases ranging from acute to chronic and seen in pediatrics to geriatrics. After 2.5 years, I decided to branch out on my own and spread the modalities of Naturopathic Medicine to the East Valley where I find my passion to be helping those boss women, those boss moms or highly ambitious, goal-driven women and addressing the root cause of why they are constantly running on empty, have a hormone imbalance or can’t lose weight despite exercising and eating clean.
When I’m not empowering others to become the best versions of themselves, I spend my time helping my community, spending time with my dogs, enjoying game nights with family and friends, and making new memories with my Fireman.

This One Mic session covers some of my journey with nutrition and how I started Intermittent Fasting and the things I’ve learned along the way.
I’m not a Doctor or Nutritionist but I’ve worked a lot off logic in my life and this seems like the proper approach for where I wanted to take my fitness and nutrition into the future.
If interested, just type in “Intermittent Fasting” into google and read some articles or watch some videos. There are a variety out there so I won’t guide in too many directions but just explore and make your own decisions and I’d encourage to always consult your doctor.

If you enjoy this episode I’d be grateful if you would leave a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts, if you believe I’ve earned it. Thanks for listening!
Had a fun time speaking to Stephanie and understanding the path to her success and what keeps her ticking day in and day out. This gal has a great head on her shoulders and is head down in health and nutrition not only for herself but for her family and clients as well. Excited to see how she continues to push the envelope with her business and help people get in the best shape of their lives!
Stephanie is a personal trainer and health coach based in Little Rock, AR. She is a certified ACE Personal Trainer and IIN (Institute for Integrative Nutrition) Health Coach with a passion for helping others learn the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
For Stephanie, exercise has always been her go-to “cure” for anything from sleepless nights to a bad mood. She firmly believes endorphins is the best medicine you can give your body—That and healthy, nutritious foods, of course.
As a wife and mom of 3 boys, setting a good example in terms of health has always been one of Stephanie’s top priorities. She strives to create healthy meals for her family every day and often shares her recipes on her blog. Even if her clients are solely there to exercise, Stephanie always talks to them about their diet before training even begins.
No matter what fitness level you are, Stephanie is eager and ready to help. She says the most important thing is to “just start.” As a personal trainer, Stephanie likes to keep her work outs fresh, so expect a variety of HITT, weight training, endurance training and Tabata.
Stephanie believes that health looks different on everyone, and that “God created us all in different shapes and sizes,” hence why she creates personalized plans for each and every client. She truly loves encouraging and pushing her clients to show them that they can do it and can achieve their goals no matter how high they’re set.
