“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity“
-World Health Organization’s Definition of health
Listen to my podcast, Causes or Cures, that covers health topics, often controversial or obscure ones, not covered in the mainstream.
Would love to see you on Instagram!
What is Blooming Wellness?
Dr. Erin here. Blooming Wellness is my website. It’s a wellness community, website, blog & online store that I run with the help of a stellar team. I like to keep “wellness” simple, rooted in common sense, attainable, affordable and natural. I always provide evidence for topics covered and make note when there isn’t a lot of evidence or if something is anecdotal. I’m not against anecdotal evidence AT ALL, but I am against being dishonest about the level of evidence for a proposed intervention or supplement. I think humor is an integral part of healing, so you’ll find a lot of it scattered throughout this website and on my social media feeds. I really try to keep everything simple and resort to nature and common sense as my number one teachers. There’s no reason for wellness to be complicated or luxurious. I write all of the blogs unless a guest author is listed. I’m also the author of Yours in Wellness, Krystal Heeling and Manic Kingdom, both of which you can get from Amazon, and I’m the creator of our most popular store item, ZENBands.
Things I don’t do: I don’t give out medical advice. Please don’t ask for it, unless you want to be disappointed.
Note: Humans love to be tribal and take sides. Too often you’ll see blogs or websites that side with western medicine or those that side with alternative medicine, and then one side religiously bashes the other. This website isn’t like that. I’m not like that. I always listen and hope to remain humble, though if I see medical misinformation, I will call it out, because it’s dangerous not to. The internet and democratic sharing of information is amazing in many ways, but it has allowed for the widespread dissemination of health advice from all kinds of people, many with little or no education or training in the health or science fields. I try to keep a balance between western approaches to diseases as well as more natural and holistic ones, because, well, that’s how I live my life. The goal of science isn’t to be right. It’s to always stay open-minded and curious. There’s good and bad in both alternative and traditional approaches to health, and I don’t take sides…, unless it’s the world cup.
