Hillary Thing, LAc.
Founder of the NLHC, Uprooting Lyme, and Bloom + Reveal Botanicals

There is a saying in Chinese medicine, “Know the form.  Forget the form.”  The past 25 years has been a journey of ever-deepening understanding of the process of healing – how and why we heal… or at times struggle with this process.  For me, supporting others in reclaiming health involves knowing the body in it’s miraculous minutia and wonderous multi-systems complexity, while at the same time leading each unique healing journey with spirit and intuition.  I am humbled by the human will not only to survive, but to thrive, which I witness in my patients every day.  Together, with the forces of nature as wind at our backs, we do the detective work, problem-solving, leaning into challenges, and tuning into the body that is required to heal.  Generating life force energy and eradicating illness in this way often leads to lasting vibrant health! 

Pam Gould, Registered Herbalist (AHG)

It is an honor to help others on their healing journey.  My personal experiences with Lyme as well as both of my children’s illnesses led me to specialize in helping others heal from tick borne disease and complex chronic health problems rooted in infection and inflammation.  I believe that true health involves more than just healing the physical body.  We must look at the whole person and not just isolate potential underlying infections. I have learned that true wellness involves the integration of daily habits that heal both the physical and spiritual body to support the whole person.  I look forward to walking with you every step on your journey back to vibrant health!

Support Staff

Magdalena Rodríguez
Clinic Manager & Programs Coordinator

Beyond managing the NLHC clinic, my role at Nourishing Life Health Center / Uprooting Lyme is to support all of the Uprooting Lyme educational programs and courses.  With a background in herbal medicine, everyday I feel lucky to be able to learn from a community of people who believe in the boundless healing capabilities of our leafy kin. Outside of the clinic I can be found exploring the forests and marveling at Nature through my most prized possession – a Belomo Triplet 10x Loupe.

H.e Haugenes
Pharmacy Manager

I am the Herb Pharmacy Manager of Bloom & Reveal Botanicals, the herbal pharmacy that serves the Nourishing Life Health Center. I have experience working as a garden/outdoor educator, vegetable farmer, and beekeeper, and currently study herbalism at Arbor Vitae School of Traditional Herbalism. I find it inspiring to work at Nourishing Life Health Center, because I am surrounded by a compassionate team of knowledgeable herbalists/womxn who are transforming people’s lives in partnership with plants. Each day, I learn more about Chinese Medicine by working with the plants themselves, and I love our lush garden where I can support the herbs growing and enjoy their bounty too! 

Daisha Sen
Patient Support Specialist & Clinic Assistant

Whether speaking with new patients, scheduling appointments, or communicating with patients about questions and concerns, I’m here to be of service in the process our clients are going through to find a more empowered relationship with their own health. Some of my background and training I call upon includes herbalism (mostly Western), health & wellness coaching, holistic chronic pain management, conflict resolution, and nutritional therapy. With over two decades of experience working in cooperative health food, I’m grateful to have found such a fitting role in my transition to holistic health. While people’s access to healthy food is still very important to me, I now enjoy supporting people on their transformative health journeys.

Hillary collaborated with me on a holistic plan that addressed my specific health issues. The worst symptoms—fatigue, brain fog and joint pain—were 80% better within seven months. I am grateful for their skill and care in managing complex conditions in a patient, methodical and encouraging way.
LP, Lyme and work burnout
Your clinic does powerful healing and meaningful work. You have completely changed my life for the better, and I hope others can reap the benefits of what you do. It is life changing, and I will ALWAYS be grateful to all of you, and your mission to heal.
SP, Lyme disease
Had to share!! My cravings… are hardly there. I am a believer. Seeing Hillary was the best decision I could have made! Also, her receptionist made me very comfortable.
JD, quitting smoking
It is rare these days to actually find a person who has the skill to resolve the problem. I am able to resume walking and feel much better. Congratulations, I am awed & grateful!
SB, high blood pressure
I want to express my deep appreciation for all on the staff whom I've interacted with. No matter who I've talked with, I'm greeted with a pleasant, kind and caring reception... Please accept my gratitude for all you each do and your helpful and caring attitudes!
JM, chronic UTI
Hillary, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! It’s been a year since we started working together and OH! What progress we have made! I couldn’t even drink water without pain when we began. That’s CRAZY! I am so grateful to have your expertise and to have you on my team. Thank you for your help. I can’t wait to celebrate our next recovery milestone!
SK, chemical exposure and Lyme
… I developed herniated discs and back pain that at times was excruciating. Hillary treated me with acupuncture, electrical stimulation, and cups. It was like a miracle. Now I’m pain free and have my life back.
DD, lower back pain
I came to Hillary after years of thinking I was doing all the right things. I was feeling disappointed with Western medicine and working way too hard to feel awful and felt like my life was being stolen. I like how Hillary does a comprehensive workup.
JD, Bartonella
I suffered with getting violently ill every month. My doctor told me I have a hormonal imbalance and wanted to put me on medication... the acupuncture and my daily herbal drink have completely resolved my problem.
LN, sudden turmoil disorder
What’s most valuable to me is the knowledge and aid you’ve provided in helping me create balance. I am pleased, impressed, and very happy with the service and caring I receive.
MA, health maintenance
I am fully recovered!! It was a difficult 10 year healing journey and thanks to you, as well as other practitioners and methods, I can now say it is over. Thank you, thank you... for your kind ministrations, wisdom and passion for healing. I couldn't have done it without you!
