Laura Paris is a licensed acupuncturist and functional medicine practitioner. In this interview, we talk about her experiences going through Chris Kresser’s Functional Medicine training program and how this has transformed her practice.
Laura is board certified Chinese Medicine practitioner and has been pursuing her passion for functional medicine for many years. She was using Paleo nutrition principles to manage her rheumatoid arthritis in the 90’s well before most people even knew what the word paleo meant. In this episode, we also discuss how Laura manages her rheumatoid arthritis using a combination of conventional and functional medicine approaches.
