Elizabeth (Beth) York, FNP-C, earned her Masters of Science in Nursing from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing with a focus in Acute Care, then went on to earn her Post-Masters as a Family Nurse Practitioner. She joins us after four years spent practicing Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), Thyroid Optimization and Treatment for Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)/Insulin Resistance in a private clinic in Nashville. She holds Specialty Certification through Worldlink Medical in Advanced Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy and is additionally certified through BioTE Medical. Before working in BHRT, she practiced in both Urgent Care, Specialty Infusions, Psychiatric Medication Management and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (in which she is also certified), and began to see that traditional (or modern) medicine couldn’t answer many questions or “fix” as many patients as she would have preferred.
Beth is an avid researcher and so began to research alternative approaches to diagnosis and treatment that she soon found helpful for her patients, her family and herself. She brings knowledge of essential oil safety and use, nutrition and toxin-free clean living as they relate to many disease states and works to not only reverse, but to prevent future disease and disability by optimizing current health in all ways possible. She is passionate about teaching the why behind what she recommends to patients and finds great joy in helping, then seeing, her patients achieve their personal health goals and feel great.
Beth most enjoys spending time with her three children, her 2 dogs, her family and her friends. In her time away from patients, she volunteers for her church Medical Dental Unit to provide free healthcare services to underserved areas around Middle Tennessee, sings in her church Worship Choir, Volunteers in her church’s childcare areas and is typically Room Mom for at least 1 of her 3 children’s classes each school year. She is an avid reader, lover of music (especially Broadway Musical and Choral Music), lover of animals, the outdoors, hiking, documentaries, local festivals, travel, and most any outdoor activity with water.
