Healing the Whole Person
Hi, Dr. LuLu here, and I have some super exciting news. We have expanded and opened a new location in historic Montford, in Asheville, NC. We are bringing in the most experienced practitioners in Asheville to provide exceptional healthcare to the community. At Epione Clinic for Integrated Healing, the focus is on practitioner team care where we all work together to help guide you on a path of self-healing and self-acceptance. This cutting-edge treatment accelerates patients to an entirely different level. Patients will have to the option to receive treatments and office visits from multiple practitioners at the same time. Take a moment and visualize what this will do for your own healing and relationship to health.

Dr. LuLu Shimek is a Naturopathic Doctor whose goal is to empower patients to take charge of their own wellness by providing sustainable health programs. You can think of her as your personal detective finding out what is the root cause of the “dis-ease” by utilizing natural therapies and the body’s own natural ability to heal itself. She believes strongly in a doctor – patient relationship where they work together to achieve the patient’s health vision and road to success. Her specialty is working with patients suffering from chronic disease, focusing on Autoimmune Diseases, Thyroid Disorders, Women’s Health, Digestive Dysfunctions, and Skin Conditions.

The Path to Restoring Your Whole Body
You might be wondering what ‘Epione’ means. Great question! Epione is the Greek goddess of soothing and healing of pain. This encompasses perfectly our vision at Epione, where we help hold the space for you to heal from your pain. Paracelsus said it best – “the highest degree of a medicine is love.”

The focus at Epione Clinic for Integrated Healing is helping patients release past trauma of their disease and life – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Dr. LuLu discovered after working with patients suffering from chronic disease that in order to embrace healing, they had to release past traumas. Epione Clinic for Integrated Healing provides a safe, loving, non-judgmental environment for patients, empowering them to take charge of their own health.
