ELLWOOD CITY – Caroline Golmic’s interest in Terrain Natural Health began as she was watching her husband Scott’s journey from Crohn’s disease to healing.
In 1979, Scott was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, and by 1997 he was on dozens of medications for nearly two decades, but now he is five years symptom-free and drug-free.
“After working with a Naturopath and witnessing my husband physically, mentally and emotionally transform, I know I’m doing what I was meant to do and it is exciting,” Golmic said recently.
After years of learning informally about the connection between gut and brain health, the importance of our microbiome, and the negative impact of inflammation on the body, Golmic decided to take the next step and pursue formal education through Trinity School of Natural Health. She completed her Certified Natural Health Professional (CNHP) in September and is continuing on toward becoming a Board Certified Naturopath.
Golmic said Terrain Natural Health is a whole-person approach.
“I believe there are three steps to the healing process; pray and believe for healing, commit to radical life change separate from your diagnosis. You’ll be educated, encouraged and equipped to take back your health. You just have to make the decision to play an active role in your health,” she said.
At Terrain, the focus is on balancing your body’s internal environment, your terrain, so it can better adapt to the stressors of its ever-changing external environment. The consultation involves extensive health and details about your current lifestyle.
“We will address symptoms, but more importantly, we will pursue the root cause of your health concerns, and with our initial and follow-up consultations we will work to reset and prepare your body for its journey back to health by removing toxins that have built up in your system and rebuild and maintain your healthy terrain,” Golmic said. “It’s important to note, my role is not to diagnose, heal or encourage clients to stop taking prescription medication. My role is to educate and equip clients to support their bodies in a way that will allow them to function as designed.”
Terrain Natural Health’s mission is to empower and equip clients to take control of their health by focusing on the foundations, supplementing when necessary, and understanding that overall health includes their body, mind and spirit.
Golmic said she has high-quality supplements for those who need more vitamins and minerals.
“Our core beliefs are: You are well made. The creator of the universe also created you. You don’t have to be a prisoner to your body, be defined by your diagnosis, or fear your genes. You do have to play an active role in your own health care,” she said.

The 2005 Lincoln High School graduate and her husband live in Ellwood City with son Julian. In December, Golmic retired after 11 years with Aflac and she also was the owner of the former Sweet Caroline’s ice cream shop on Lawrence Avenue in the borough.
