I’m Laura Paris, a holistic doc specializing in hormone and immune health for women.
My passion is to help you take charge of your health with a holistic, root-cause approach. Like you, I’ve had my own health challenges. The most profound was in 1999 when I was diagnosed with an aggressive type of Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is an autoimmune disease. It was excruciating to turn a doorknob, walk down a flight of stairs, or even hold a fork. I was literally crippled and devastated. I devoted my life to learning the tools to climb out of this condition. Now I live a full, vibrant, and healthy life. My immune system is stable, strong, and resilient. I had a lot of help along the way, and my mission is to provide that help for you.
For over 20 years I have worked with people who suffer from unexplained inflammation, gut issues, body pain, hormone imbalance, infertility, fatigue, weight gain, and many more problems that aren’t solved by conventional medicine alone. I commit to helping you regain health so you can enjoy your precious life!
I am a Doctor of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine, which is the earliest form of Functional Medicine. In addition, I am a certified nutritionist and I’ve trained in five different Functional Medicine educational programs. Two decades of seminars, mentorships, and study groups round out my knowledge.
You can work with me from anywhere in the United States. Or, see me locally in Capitola or Monterey, California. Request a complimentary discovery intake to learn more about my Functional Medicine consults.
