Ashley Lilburn is our Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner from Aledo, TX. When her daughter Julia was young, she was chronically ill. Ashley took her to every doctor she could think of, but by the age of 5 Julia had become antibiotic resistant- and was still struggling. Ashley was scared, tired, and felt like she had tried everything that the doctors had told her. Knowing she couldn’t sit back any longer, she began a deep dive into what other alternative options were available. She read every book and article out there about alternative and lifestyle medicine.
Ashley began to implement the dietary and lifestyle changes she learned about. Julia hasn’t needed medical intervention since—and that was years ago! It was her calling to share this approach with others. With an MS in Lifestyle Health Sciences, a BS in Psychology, and a HUGE heart for this type of work, she now helps individuals create and execute strategies to meet their health and wellness goals. Witnessing people’s journey to better health is one of the greatest joys of her life.
Having been with Fort Worth Wellness for two years, Ashley is passionate about helping individuals reclaim their vitality through lifestyle medicine, NAET therapy, and lab work. When she’s not helping clients, Ashley is working towards taking the Boards of Lifestyle Medicine, volunteering at her church, taking care of her pet chickens, or spending time with her husband and two kiddos.
Get to Know Ashley
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I have always wanted to work with energy healing.
What are your hobbies?
Being outdoors and my family!
Favorite travel destination? Colorado is our easy go-to place, but I LOVE to travel anywhere and can't wait to show the world to our children!
Song you jam to on a road trip?
I have no opinion. Everyone I'm with has more opinions about music than I do and I'm happy to go with that.
I've gotten where I don't love dessert - I'd much rather enjoy a glass of red wine.
What have you learned over your lifetime that you'd like to share with the younger generation?
I'd love to share with a younger generation that the most valuable tool you can curate is the skill to hold things (events, people, emotions, etc.) in neutrality. When we can hold things in neutrality we can see more clearly and have permission to gather information in order to make good decisions. It's something I'm still working on constantly (and it is a lot of hard work - I'm so imperfect at it), but I know it allows me to take responsibility for what is mine and release ownership of what isn't mine.
