Dr. Tracey Cook was born and raised in Orrville, OH. For 15 years she owned and operated TLC Massotherapy in her hometown as a licensed massage therapist, but realized that massage therapy was only part of the solution as she was not able to get to the root cause of her patients pain and illness. This led her to Naturopathic Medicine.
Dr. Tracey Cook was born and raised in Orrville, OH. For 15 years she owned and operated TLC Massotherapy in her hometown as a licensed massage therapist, but realized that massage therapy was only part of the solution as she was not able to get to the root cause of her patients pain and illness. This led her to Naturopathic Medicine. After completing her BS in biology through the University of Akron graduating summa cum laude, she then graduated with a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and her Masters in Acupuncture from the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. Dr. Cook felt compelled to return to her hometown to share what she learned about natural and non-toxic methods of achieving health and wellness. Her prior career in body work has enhanced her ability to treat chronic pain, stress and anxiety as part of Allium Naturopathic general family practice.
Dr. Elizabeth Rickard was born and raised in Girard, PA. She received her Bachelor's of Science in Biomedical and Veterinary Sciences from Penn State University. After working in home health care and seeing the impact diet and natural treatments had on her patients, she realized that there must be more out there than what conventional medicine was offering. And after dealing with her own health issues and seeing how little time her doctor's spent actually listening to her trying to get to the root cause, she knew she had to try to change this paradigm. This struggle led her to Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Phoenix, Arizona where she received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine. After graduating Dr. Rickard knew that she wanted to return back East to help spread the word of the amazing healing naturopathy offers to the rural communities where she grew up. She is passionate about educating her patients, so that they can take control of their health. Her focuses include anxiety, depression, ADHD, women's health and chronic disease--pretty much anyone who is ready to take their health into their own hands!
In her time outside the office she enjoys hiking, yoga, cooking (and eating the food!) and reading. She has one fur baby, a black lab named Penelope who is as spoiled and sweet as they come.
