Dr. Lillian grew up in the country, close to flora and fauna. Her mother and both grandmothers were close to the earth, growing their own foods and also gathering many offerings from the woods and meadows. Even as a child, Lillian Ronzio knew that she wanted to be a nurse. Taking care of people, helping them to feel better, easing their pain~~this was her motivation when she finally graduated nursing school. She worked in the hospital as a med/surgical nurse and then as an office nurse in a family practice, where she had extensive experience in all fields of nursing. During this time realized that the philosophy in the medical field was very different from her own.
Lillian’s decision to enter the field Natural Sciences was made with confidence after her own life changing personal experience using herbs. This decision came with the determination to EDUCATE everyone on how to take care of themselves and their loved ones through the use of Herbs and Nutrition. It became her vocation to show people that they had a choice & could make intelligent decisions in regard to their own health care.
In her quest for knowledge, Dr. Lillian has traveled around the world and has studied all over Europe, Austrailia, Asia, Alaska and Hawaii gleaning as much information as she could get her hands on. Here in the United States she has studied with the true pioneers in this field including Dr. Jack Richason of California, La Dean Griffin of Utah, Donald Bamer, of Oklahoma, the late Dr. Dick Versendaal and the esteemed, late Dr. Bernard Jensen of California, who is known as ‘The Father of Iridology’.
Lillian received her Doctorate of Naturopathy through the National Board of Examiners, for Naturopathic doctors. Dr. Lillian Ronzio has owned her herb shop, The Natural Way in Connellsville, PA for almost 40 years. In addition to teaching and lecturing across North America, Lillian has had her own private practice and has hosted numerous radio shows for most of her time in this field. Dr Lillian was married to her high school sweetheart for 46 years and they have 4 children who have been involved in the business in various areas. Her dream of opening her own school has come to fruition, with the purchase of a beautiful 40 acre estate in Southwestern Pennsylvania...The Dr. Lillian Ronzio School of Holistic Health.
