Dr. Lauren’s passion is to make functional medicine accessible and affordable for everyone. Her path to functional medicine began in 2015 when her husband became her first patient and reversed his symptoms through addressing the root causes of candida overgrowth and leaky gut. She’s since been on her own journey of healing hormonal imbalance after experiencing post birth control syndrome.
