Elizabeth Greig brings over 25 years of healthcare experience to Blum Center for Health, where she is one of the founding practitioners. Her practice focuses on treating adults and teens with autoimmune conditions, women’s health concerns including menopause and premenstrual syndrome, gastrointestinal imbalances, fatigue and other chronic health conditions.
In partnership with her patients, Elizabeth takes time to discover the unique factors that create imbalances in their health and then designs an individualized treatment program to optimize their well-being and medical condition. Functional medicine brings her—and her patients– the greatest satisfaction of all the practices she has been a part of because she sees so many people get better, even when they have previously been told that wasn’t possible.
Elizabeth did her graduate study at the Yale School of Nursing, earning a Masters of Science in Nursing, and went on to become an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Yale with a clinical practice in Primary Care. After Yale, she spent ten years offering voluntary service on a mobile medical clinic in rural India and also studied and practiced meditation.
Through these life-changing experiences, Elizabeth became even more convinced that healthy nutrition and lifestyle changes could prevent so many of the illnesses she saw. Before joining us at Blum Center for Health, Elizabeth worked in Internal Medicine at CareMount Medical Group (formerly Mount Kisco Medical Group). She is certified in Functional Medicine by the Institute for Functional Medicine and has taken advanced training with the Center for Mind Body Medicine.
Elizabeth began her meditation and yoga practices before college and continues them to this day. Through her personal and professional practice, she has had many first-hand experiences of the power of the mind-body connection and ways to prevent stress from coming into the body. She loves to bike and hike in the Catskills and is always looking forward to her next visit to family in Guatemala, Mexico, and Hawaii.
