Erin Livers, BA, ICNTNutrition Therapist, Health Educator & Speaker, Intuitive Chef, Writer
In private counseling sessions, I support individuals to discover how to nourish themselves with food and nurture themselves in all aspects of their life. My guiding principle is to use food as medicine, while incorporating functional medicine principles and protocols, herbal medicine, dietary supplements and other holistic practices as needed to restore my clients’ health and vitality. I rely on a comprehensive understanding of my clients and their goals, which allows me to create individualized recommendations to achieve long-lasting benefits.

Health Educator: Community Educator
Whether I’m working with clients one-on-one, leading a small class or training a large group, I present well-researched, science-based, and time-tested information in a clear and entertaining way. My goal is to teach you how to be healthy, so you can confidently make choices that create healthy habits, while enjoying your time in the kitchen and the food on your plate.
I am a well-researched and enthusiastic speaker with experience speaking about a wide variety of health topics. Allow me to design a presentation to inspire and educate your group with one of these timely topics. GO HERE FOR TOPICS.
Community Education teaches groups how to nourish body, mind and spirit, often in the context of that group. Most of us receive very little health education in school, and as evidenced by the health of our society, the classroom education most of us receive is inadequate, while the plethora of misinformation just serves to confuse us rather than answer our questions. Today, it’s parents who are held responsible for teaching children about diet and most do so simply by example with very little support. Join me in a class or allow me to create a workshop or class-series for your organization to get your questions answered.
Worksite Wellness Coordinator
My Worksite Wellness Programs can support the members of your organization to learn the basics of nutrition and create healthier habits that allow them lose weight, lower cholesterol, and blood pressure, reduce pain & inflammation, support immunity and ultimately reduce sick time. After years spent in the corporate world—before I became a nutritionist—I’ve seen how these programs are a great benefit to employees and companies alike. My team and I have a variety of things to offer. GO HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
When I’m not creating new recipes to satisfy my family, I rely on my tried & true favorites. My creativity in the kitchen comes from learning to cook at an early age, being challenged to discover delicious gluten-, dairy-, and corn-free meals 30 years ago and divine inspiration.
I’m happy to share my recipes by creating various cookbooks and making them available HERE.
I share much of my philosophy on nourishment, food and sustainable living through article on my BLOG.
What Do I Eat?

- Dairy Free 100% 100%
- Corn Free 100% 100%
- Grain Free 90% 90%

I’m a professional member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP), and I hold an Honorary Board Certification in Holistic Nutrition.
I graduated with a BA in Journalism & Fine Arts from Indiana University, after which I maintained a successful graphic design career for 15 years. In 2000, I followed my passion for health to the Seven Bowls School of Nutrition, Nourishment and Healing, a 3-year, master’s level program in nutrition, herbalism, and complimentary medicine where I graduated with a certification of Integrated Clinical Nutrition Therapist.
Because I was diagnosed with food sensitivities in 1986, I’ve been challenged to eat gluten-, dairy- and corn-free for over 30 years. Believe me when I say that I can help you eat delicious food, despite having to avoid one or many foods, due to sensitivities, intolerances or allergies. I love to cook delicious meals and create recipes from food grown in my organic garden, and I also know all the tricks to eat healthfully despite those challenging circumstances we all face: travel, long meetings, car trips, camping, playground, and even lunchtime.
Because each of us is an individual with our own biochemical make-up, my recommendations, meal plans, cleanse programs, and recipes, are designed 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 and Nutrition. You can find out more about it at Functional Medicine.

“I worked with Erin for about 5 months. We discussed the foundations of a healthy lifestyle, including what and how to eat and exercise, the role that emotions play, just to name a few. Erin is extremely knowledgeable in the field of nutrition. She not only taught me invaluable information to help me transition to be a healthier, happier individual, but she kick-started me to follow my own passion to study and learn as much as I can in the fields of health and wellness.”
“Erin is both knowledgeable and compassionate. She attended with blessed concern and understanding to my emotional feelings in addition to offering sound advice and good recipes!”
“Erin’s expertise and in-depth knowledge of nutrition science make her an excellent teacher as well as a confident nutritional consultant. I went to Erin looking for help with some chronic digestion issues. She was able to dig deep and find solutions I never would have found on my own. She offered more than just her nutritional expertise. I felt like Erin was someone I could turn to for support and encouragement because she understood what I was going through. If you’re looking for real solutions, go see Erin! She’s amazing!”
