Specializing in Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes, and co-occurring conditions including POTS/dysautonomia, and MCAS.
Dawn Schimke is an herbalist, wellness coach, and advocate for her clients. Her first, life-altering, experience involving herbs was with Dr. Xu, a skilled practitioner of TCM, who saved her high-risk pregnancy in 1997. She shared the story at a TEDx Charlottesville open mike event in 2019. Her offerings include support for people who experience chronic and complex conditions that affect energy levels (Spoonies), including Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes, dysautonomia, and fibromyalgia. Dawn also offers mini-workshops to "HerbCurious" people who desire simple, delicious techniques to upgrade their wellness autonomy. Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome in 2013, Dawn uses her knowledge and insights to help medical "Zebras", neurodivergent people, and those unseen by the dominant medical paradigm.
