Elizabeth Hughes received her undergraduate degree from Princeton University and her medical degree for the University of Virginia. She did advanced medical training at the University of Pennsylvania and Stanford University. After completing her residency she joined the Stanford faculty, where she taught and practiced for eight years. She has also practiced at several large medical groups as well as being in private practice.
As she progressed through her career, Elizabeth became frustrated that the promises of medical science didn't translate into cures for most common diseases and that patients still struggled with illness despite receiving state-of-the-art medical care. After witnessing the nearly spontaneous resolution of an "incurable" disease, Elizabeth became obsessed with finding out why mainstream medicine fails so many people.
Elizabeth combines her medical background with wide ranging studies of alternative modalities of health and healing into a one-of-a-kind system designed to help people who feel like their lives have been hijacked by chronic illness break free from cycles of disease.
Elizabeth is a board certified dermatologist, a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200), an advanced PSYCH-K facilitator, and a Whole Health Medicine Institute certified provider. She lives in Seattle with her children and two rescued greyhounds.
