About Dr. Ellison

"Building one's own healthy diet begins with foods a person already likes.  As people find their health improving, change becomes easier. And if overeating is an issue, cravings diminish, and appetite transformation occurs. Over time appetite for empty calories and fast food greatly diminishes or completely goes away. If not, there are other issues involved. All can be dealt with."

With her husband, Dr. John Ramsay, she has practiced medicine in Fredericksburg, Texas, for 33 years. Having five grown kids, she's felt greatly blessed, but at about age fifty, her health began slipping.  After two years of chronic illness she was faced with the need to take various medications that she regularly prescribes to patients. But instead, God led her to a recovery of her health using diet and exercise alone. 

When her aging skin significantly improved, she started writing about what lifestyle change can do.  Since then, both in her practice and at wellness retreats, she coaches people to use their diet to regain their health. 

Since 1997, Dr. Ellison-Ramsay, nicknamed Dr. Suz by her staff, has headed up Lamb's Tale Ministries, a Christian soul care ministry.  Lamb's Tale provides Christian leadership respite care and retreats for the general public. Retreats include topics on wellness, writing, and women's issues and are held at the Haven River Inn in Comfort, Texas.  Dr. Suz also speaks at churches and at retreats on the topic of wellness from a Christian perspective.

Her next book project, Why Do I Eat This? is expected out in 2018.  This one addresses the issue of overeating, binge eating, etc.

Things I really like:


  • Movies:  Babette's Feast, You've Got Mail, Armageddon, Pride and Prejudice, and Homeward Bound 

  • Writers: Oswald Chambers, Phillip Yancey, Nancy Groom, Pat Conroy, Jane Rubietta, G.K. Chesterton

  • Speakers I can listen to again and again: Jane Rubietta, Larry Crabb, Dan Allender, John Eldredge

  • Places:  the Texas Hill Country and Montell, Texas

  • Travel with a purpose, like going to eight football games at Wheaton when our son was a senior defensive end... and as often as possible to wherever our grandchildren are.  And traveling to dream about founding retreat centers, internationally.

  • Cooking for crowds of hungry people.

  • Growing trees from seed, puttering with our aquaponics system, and planting purple potatoes.

  • Getting up early, drinking coffee and sitting with God, not necessarily in that order.

  • And I've learned to almost like exercise, surprises, and especially the serendipitous somethings that confirm God's presence daily.
