Erin Cahoon, Intern with Nourished Health Consulting and Assistant at Nourished Health Center
Erin Cahoon is currently studying Human Nutrition and Dietetics at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Her passion for nutrition took root several years ago when she was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. After experiencing a prolonged and challenging flare-up involving chronic pain, embarrassing symptoms, and exhaustion, she was simply sick of being sick. Erin began to make various improvements to her lifestyle: she purified her diet, better managed stress, saw an acupuncturist regularly, and did gentle and regular exercise. Less than a year later, not only was Erin’s Crohn’s Disease under control, but her other chronic illnesses (asthma and allergies) began to improve as well. By continuing these endeavors, Erin was surprised to discover that she had more energy than ever before. Within the next two years, she hiked a fourteener and starting running 5Ks, activities she never dreamed of doing as an asthmatic or sickly Crohn’s patient. After this transformative experience, Erin is now devoting her life to supporting, inspiring, and guiding others to make dietary and lifestyle adjustments that can further them on their health journeys. She believes that everyone has the power to improve their lives and their health. She loves the nourishing, empowering, and integrative environment that Nourished Health Center offers its many clients, and is thrilled to be a part of the action as an intern at the Center.
