I’m Dr. Laura Paris, an autoimmune specialist
My passion is to help women reclaim their immune health and live with wellness and vitality. Like you, I’ve had my own autoimmune struggles. All through my 20s, I felt unwell, and even though doctors could not find anything that showed up on labs at the time, I knew something was wrong. In 1999, at age 33, my inflammation exploded and finally showed up on lab tests as an aggressive type of Rheumatoid Arthritis. 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 was already studying holistic health, and I devoted my life to learning the tools to climb out of my debilitating condition. Now I live with vitality and comfort. My immune system is stable and resilient. I had a lot of help along the way, and my mission is to provide that help for you.
I am a doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine (DACM) and a licensed herbalist, and I am certified in functional medicine and nutrition. For over 20 years I have worked with women who suffer from all kinds of autoimmune conditions and runaway inflammation. I provide the holistic aspect of their care, to complement their conventional care. Fortunately, there are safe and natural approaches to help control inflammation and reverse autoimmunity. I am committed to helping you regain health so you can enjoy your precious life!
