Debora Tingley describes why she became a functional medicine practitioner
Why I was drawn to Functional Medicne

MY STORY

My father was growing wheatgrass in our Los Angeles backyard in the 1970s. Needless to say, I grew up in a household that valued eating a healthy diet. As someone who has endured chronic migraines, I've also been careful with food choices, but it was only after a severe health crisis — triggered by a combination of gastrointestinal infection, antibiotic use, and midlife stress — that I truly understood the vital role of gut health in overall wellnesss.

 

Even though I studied basic science and traveled in standard medical circles for most of my professional career, I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree: I was always trying to resolve health issues for myself and others by mining the scientific literature, getting to the underlying cause, and then using diet and lifestyle to rebalance. When I realized this practice had a name, “Functional Medicine,” I knew I had finally found my calling. After several years of rigorous graduate study, internship, and starting a private practice, I am humbled by the depth of the clinical science, the uniqueness of each person’s health story, and the power of collaborative clinical work. I invite you to join me on a transformative journey toward your best expression of health and vitality, guided by the effective principles of functional medicine.
