 Natural Awakenings Lancaster-Berks

Gattuso Joins Health By Choice Wellness Facility

Naturopathic Doctor Erin Gattuso recently relocated to the area from San Diego, California, and has joined Ella McElwee, naturopathic doctor, at Health By Choice Education and Research, a natural wellness facility in Manheim. She specializes in pediatrics and women’s health, including hormonal and digestive conditions, and is accepting new patients. 


With extensive training in CranioSacral therapy, functional neurology and functional medicine, Gattuso is intent on finding natural health solutions that work with an average American’s busy lifestyle. She uses primarily botanical medicine, mind-body exercises, diet and nutraceuticals.  


As a woman of reproductive age, I grew really frustrated with the answers conventional medicine was giving me and my age group about how to regulate our bodies and our emotions,” explains Gattuso. The side effects of the drugs they were giving me were too much to tolerate so I turned to natural medicine, and the rest was history. Now I love empowering women about how to find relief for their symptoms in a way that resonates with them.”
