Our Guest: Amie Skilton
Former functional medicine practitioner of 18 years, Amie Skilton’s view of root cause medicine was forever altered as a result of an environmentally acquired illness.
In 2017, after developing CIRS herself, she discovered the world of building biology and the various ways in which the built environment has a profound impact on human health. She realized her naturopathic, nutritional and herbal toolkit were only as useful as her environment was healthy.
She’s now on a mission to raise awareness in the public arena, and educate practitioners, on a commonly overlooked but monumentally significant influence on health and wellbeing.
