– Episode 025 Dr. Ellie Heintze, DN, LAc, Owner-Starting Point Acupuncture

The doctors told her, “There is nothing wrong with you.” Yet Dr. Ellie Heintze, a chemistry student at the time, was in constant pain. After a visit to a naturopath and acupuncturist, Dr. Ellie’s life changed for the better, and she also changed her career choice.

Dr. Ellie runs Starting Point Acupuncture and Wellness, an integrative clinic focusing on complex chronic pain and migraine cases. She also helps clients with food allergies and digestive issues. She is the author of A Starting Point Guide to Going Gluten-Free, and the creator of the Food Allergy Formula, an online course that makes understanding food allergies and food planning easy.

In our conversation, we discuss several topics including:

  • Her first encounter with a naturopath and acupuncturist.
  • How acupuncture puts the body into the rest and repair mode.
  • Breaking down food allergies and the importance of thorough testing.
  • Recognizing the places where gluten can hide.
  • The power of ginger and curcumin.
  • Using food as medicine.
