In the mid 1990's, after a round of layoffs and some health challenges, Ernie decided that he wanted to be in the natural health field. In 1996 with his soulmate at his side (Irene), the first Healthy Life-Styles was born in St. Thomas Ontario. Ernie practiced nutritional and botanical medicine while watching the company grow. In the early 2000's, Irene went back to work as an administrative assistant and shortly after Ernie went to school and graduated as a Paramedic. Currently, Irene works for Norfolk county and Ernie works full time for the business. Enough about us, the most important piece of the puzzle is the Healthy Life-Styles staff and practitioners.
