Short Business Description:
Erin Erickson, CNP is a board-certified family and women’s health nurse practitioner who specializes in integrative and functional medicine at Allina Health Champlin Clinic.

Erickson has professional interests in lifestyle medicine, the mind-body connection to health and illness, and the healing benefits of food, movement, sleep, stress reduction, vitamins, and herbs.

Practice Philosophy: I believe in a personalized approach to health and well-being. I partner with people and listen deeply to explore the root causes of their symptoms and create plans for attaining optimal health and well-being using evidence-informed integrative and Western medicine approaches. I help people find safe treatment options for health concerns, including irritable bowel syndrome, acid reflux, depression, anxiety, stress, pain, headaches, autoimmune diseases, insomnia, fatigue, high cholesterol, diabetes, and overweight/obesity. I also enjoy helping people create wellness plans to prevent disease and optimize health. I am an advocate for using food as medicine and addressing the fundamentals of health, including stress, nutrition, physical activity, relationships, and spirituality.

Penny George Institute for Health and Healing – Laura Sandquist, CNP DNP
Address: 8675 Valley Creek Rd
Woodbury, MN
55125
Last Name:
Sandquist
First Name:
Laura
Business Phone:
(612) 863-3333
Short Business Description:
I am a board-certified adult and geriatric nurse practitioner specializing in functional medicine seeing patients 13 years of age and older. I have been a registered nurse for over 15 years and a nurse practitioner since 2012. I’m interested in partnering with people to help them safely navigate and use the best of what integrative and conventional medicine both have to offer. I provide help with chronic health concerns and guidance on creating wellness plans that will prevent disease, and optimize health and vitality. I’m passionate about: using food as medicine and exploring how stress, sleep, spirituality, relationships and the environment are all connected to health and what to do about it. A challenge of my career I enjoy is: deeply listening to the whole story and discovering what factors may be contributing to why someone has a disease or symptoms. Then taking a step further and guiding people through the complexity of making lifestyle changes that will work for them.

The best thing I’ve done for my health is: to eat more healthy fat and protein, and eliminate a food that was causing symptoms.

Honors and awards: University of Minnesota School or Nursing Rising Star Award 2016
