Dr. Elizabeth Elliott received a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine as well as a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2009 and has been in practice for 9 years. She completed a two-year residency in primary care medicine, with a focus on Women’s Health and hormone balancing in Honolulu, Hawaii. She also has additional training in the treatment of depression and anxiety, supportive cancer care, chronic disease, and the treatment of chronic pain or injuries. Dr. Elliott has additional certification from the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in supportive cancer care.
Passionate about public education, Dr. Elliott has given a wide variety of educational lectures, has been a guest on Doctor Health Radio in Hawaii, and in 2015 was featured in the award-winning cancer survivorship documentary film C- A Celebration of Life.
Dr. Elliott is also a strong proponent of preventive health education and having holistic care becoming accessible to all. For the 8 years prior to her work in Hawaii, Dr. Elliott worked in local community clinics providing medical care to underserved populations. She feels that these experiences shaped her ability to communicate well with a wide variety of patients, and tries to adhere to the idea of “meeting people where they’re at.”
Beyond her formal schooling, Dr. Elliott visited China for a month to further her knowledge and training in Qi Gong and Classical Chinese Medical theory. She has had additional mentorship in Five Element Acupuncture, a unique style of acupuncture designed to address the deepest causes of mental, emotional, and physical imbalance. From her exceptional teachers, she learned that every person and their ailments are unique and that a key to understanding disease patterns in the human body lies in understanding the patterns of nature as a whole.
As Dr. Elliott’s primary treatment tools she uses acupuncture, both Chinese and Western botanicals, nutrition, homeopathy, and physical medicine. She has the same goal for all of her patients: to look at all aspects of an individual’s health to identify and treat the root cause of disease and imbalance and to help them live their lives joyfully and to their fullest potential.
