About the Practice

Holistic Family Healthcare, PC is the independent Nurse Practitioner Practice of Elaine Hardy, MS, RN, APN, C. The practice is located in Hackettstown, NJ in the Mansfield Township section, in picturesque Warren County.

Holistic Family Healthcare was born from the Holistic Nurse Practitioner practice of the late Carol J. Alexander, MS, RN, APN, C and who was Elaine Hardy’s mother.

Elaine Hardy utilizes a unique approach to healthcare by blending traditional and holistic medicines. As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Elaine is licensed to perform physical exams, order diagnostic lab and radiology tests, and order prescription medications. Elaine searches for the causes of your health challenges and does not agree with placing labels on diseases, but instead, searches for the causes. She then prepares a customized and individualized treatment plan for each patient which consists of lifestyle changes, dietary changes, supplements, herbs, vitamins, and medications only if necessary.

Elaine has a special interest in the treatment of children, especially in a holistic approach to childhood food intolerances, asthma, ear infections, eczema, and gastrointestinal disorders.

The collaborating physician for Holistic Family Healthcare is Alan Remde, MD.  Dr. Remde maintains a separate practice in Philipsburg , NJ.

Unique Features

A unique feature about our practice is that we listen to you and give you time to talk. An hour or more is set aside for each visit, allowing patients plenty of time to discuss their concerns, and ask questions, before being examined. Elaine then invites the patient to participate in their care by including them in their plan of care.
