About Functional Medicine
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of your health problems (instead of just treating symptoms) so you can get well and stay well without unnecessary drugs or surgery.
Our Approach and Philosophy
In conventional medicine, there’s a doctor for every part of your body, but in functional medicine, we see the body as an interconnected whole, within a larger environment. We recognize that in order to treat one part of the body, all of the other parts must also be considered. We provide a natural holistic approach rooted in functional medicine using traditional as well as unconventional tools to identify and recommend a treatment plan for your symptoms.
Hi, I’m Laurie Wallis – Registered Nurse and Functional Medicine Practitioner. I have been a registered nurse for over 25 years, and I have had my health and wellness practice here in Danville for 10 years.
I call myself a health investigator and use my background in traditional medicine along with the latest cutting-edge research in functional medicine to investigate the root causes of any issues you may be having.
I take the results from your assessments, bloodwork, and biofeedback and investigate the root of the cause. I then help support you in developing a treatment plan that focuses on natural treatments (diet, lifestyle, supplements, and neutraceuticals) so that you can avoid the risks and side effects of pharmaceuticals.
I’m a Chicago native that has called Danville home for the last 11 years. I love the California sunshine. When I’m not busy running my business and raising my two teenage sons, I try to spend as much time as I can outdoors – hiking, biking, and swimming. I am passionate about health and wellness and have been studying and using natural types of wellness for myself and family since I was 11 years old.
