Elisabeth Hoffer, Patient Coordinator
Even as a young child, Elisabeth was interested in natural medicine and held the philosophy that the closer to the natural, unadulterated state, the better. She was influenced strongly by her grandmother's American Indian heritage as she saw how the vegetable garden her grandparents kept ministered to both body and soul. By age 6, she was making her own remedies from foraged plants. At age 19, she was reintroduced to natural medicine when she became a Longevity Health Center patient and received life-altering care. With health regained, she started self-studying, with a belief that a multi-pronged approach (nutrition, exercise, soul-care, herbals, etc.) is the best way to health. After having two home-births herself, she became particularly interested in women's and pediatric health. Elisabeth lives in Marietta with her two children, Henry and Sylvie.
