Sarah, the Champion for Natural Medicine.
I’m Dr. Sarah and I’m the founder of Ellis Family Wellness. I show health-conscious people how to take care of their bodies, heal themselves naturally, and prevent diseases.
I graduated from Bastyr University where I studied naturopathic medicine. I’m a true believer in the idea that the body is capable of healing itself… as long as you’re good to it.
So, ultimately, you can say I teach people (especially women) how to be good to themselves.
Sarah, the Fertility Specialist.
I devote most of my time to helping women make the mental, physical and environmental changes needed to boost their chances of getting pregnant.
- I’ve spent 7 years helping couples get pregnant.
- I have over 2,000 clinical hours using holistic therapies to help clients
- I’ve helped over 100 women improve their fertility
My mission is to help guide women to, through and beyond motherhood.
Before I was Dr. Sarah, I was a woman racing a clock. I was pushing 30 with no kids and I was FREAKING OUT. Don’t get me wrong, I had already checked a bunch of life goals off of my to-do list.
- College Degree: ✓ I had three of them.
- Career: ✓ I started my own business while in medical school.
- Accolades: ✓ I was a published clinical researcher and had worked with the National Institutes of Health.
- Wedding Ring: ✓ I was married to a wonderful and adoring husband.
- Bonus: ✓ I had radiant skin, luscious locs and a gorgeous smile (My hubby made me add that part.)
According to my besties, I had a near perfect life.
But there was this inescapable infant-sized void in my life. I just wasn’t as fulfilled as I should’ve been.
I wasn’t a mom.
And I was so ready to be a mom.
But when I started down my path to conception I was diagnosed with PCOS and I was immediately warned of the impending difficulties of trying to conceive with limited solutions.
I was crushed. Here I was, 28 years old with all of the degrees, the amazing guy, the career, but no baby. In fact, I began to wonder if there would ever be a baby. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve cried after seeing yet ANOTHER pregnancy announcement on Facebook. How many times I’ve yelled at God for giving other people babies but constantly passing me by. The many, many times I’ve had to check the mirror before going into class to see how badly my tears had ruined my mascara.
Like most women, I relied on my doctor to help me treat my PCOS and get me closer to becoming a mother. Unfortunately my doctor could only offer me few options that were both expensive and invasive. I knew that I couldn’t afford surgery and I didn’t want to put my body through the stress associated with medications and procedures like IUI and IVF.
So, I decided to take matters into my own hands.
I decided to focus on my mindset, nutrition, and lifestyle. Within three months of trying I became pregnant with our healthy & beautiful son, Roman. I was told that it could take years for me to get pregnant. But instead of making that my reality, I chose to focus on my body as a whole and use natural ways to support my body’s ability to conceive. And it worked!
In fact, 18 months later my husband and I were surprised by the arrival of our “Quarantine Baby”. Against all odds, I gave birth to two children in 2 years!
It’s my mission to use everything that I’ve learned back then and more to help women just like me become mothers.
