Food As Medicine
Holistic Health Counseling
Created by Erin Livers to teach individuals, families and groups how to nourish and care for their bodies, minds and spirits as a complement to their standard healthcare. She offers nutrition therapy consultations and related services to individuals, companies and groups in the Boulder-Denver area. Private consults for individuals are available in person or via phone/internet if travel to Boulder is prohibitive. Greater details about her services are found throughout this site.
Food Sensitivities, Allergies & Intolerance
I specialize in supporting people with chronic conditions related to food sensitivities, allergies, and intolerances: Ulcerative Colitis, Crohn’s disease, Celiac disease, GERD, IBS and other digestive issues, Interstitial Cystitis, migraines, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, ADD/ADHD, eczema, sinusitis, ear infections and others. For these clients I often work with the Specific Carbohydrate Diet or GAPS Diet or grain-free diets like the Paleo Diet.
Meal plans, Cleanse Programs, & Recipes
Because I believe that each of us is an individual with our own biochemical make-up, I design meal plans, cleanse programs, create recipes, and make recommendations to meet the specific needs of you and your family. In order to help you regain balance, strength and vitality I may also make recommendations that rely upon my knowledge of herbs and supplemental nutrients. My philosophy of health has also been greatly influenced by the principles of Functional Medicine/Nutrition. You can find out more about it here: Functional Medicine.

Diet, Genetics, Culture and Lifestyle
Holistic Health Counseling addresses the whole person; diet, lifestyle, genetic and cultural heredity, and environment. I begin with your history (the story of who you are), then taking all symptoms into account, we work together to help you reach your goals for physical health and mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. While my guiding principle is to use food as medicine, I may also incorporate lifestyle coaching, metabolic testing, body-centered techniques, imagery and/or intuitive counseling into our sessions.
