Reclaiming Your Health through Daily Habits

In this episode, we are talking about improving health through creating daily habits that support us. Dr. Erin Donaldson joins us to highlight how important listening to your body is, and to share her approach to healing using precision medicine.
First Aired on: Jan 2, 2023
In this episode:
Dr. Erin Donaldson is a board certified Family Medicine Doctor who practices Precision Medicine, using genomics and comprehensive data to co-create health plans with her patients.  She believes the majority of health is accomplished through daily habits, which was sparked by her own health journey with autoimmune disease.

Dr. Erin had a seemingly healthy childhood.  That is until she suffered with osteomyelitis as an udergrad student in college.
Being a high achiever, Erin went on to pursue her lifelong dream of being a doctor and attended medical school after graduation.
In med school, Erin was working, keeping the stressful med school schedule, and practicing cross fit regularly.

Then she became sick.  Struggling with fevers, rashes, and joint pain.  Answers were slow to come.  Erin had lost so much function, that she had to move back home at one point.
Her Lupus diagnosis was initially a relief, as at least there was an answer...and hopefully a solution.

Like so many of us, Erin's first appointment with the Rheumatologist was crushing.  He basically told her to expect decline, and that medications could only hope to slow disease progress.

Erin was raised to question.  So she set out for answers, and began her "clunky trial and error."

She was already gluten free because she had previously been diagnosed with Celiac.

She began to change her daily habits:
  • Practicing emotional release
  • Reducing the intensity of her exercise:  exchanging cross fit for yoga 
  • Prioritizing sleep
  • Prioritizing recovery
  • Reducing stress to increase resilience
  • Listening to her body
Having initially practiced medicine as a hospitalist, Dr. Erin found that Precision Medicine is her true love.
Combining genetics with in depth lab testing and supporting patients in creating the lifestyle and daily habits that support true wellness is her jam!

Embracing the field of psychoneuroimmunology, Dr. Erin helps patients trust their bodies and the signals they are receiving.
Dr. Erin Health is where you can find her Autoimmune Academy, which will take you through the steps to get started improving your health.
