Women Who Build Empires

Apr 26, 2022

Stressed out? Feeling overwhelmed? Struggling to find time to relax and de-stress? Are you struggling to figure out why your stress levels are high, and what you can do about it? Well, you're not alone. And that's why Dr. Laura DeCesaris recommends looking for an alternate pathway. Functional medicine is a unique type of health care that takes a step back and examines the big picture to help you address individual symptoms. And I think that's why so many people find it so helpful and transformative. It's really customized for you and what works for you.


Dr. Laura is a functional-medicine trained health consultant and coach for entrepreneurs and busy, driven professionals.  She approaches health and performance in a truly holistic way, combining powerful mindset reframing around health goals with functional medicine methods to identify the root causes and behaviors contributing to less-than-optimal health and well-being.  When she's not helping people uplevel their health, she loves hiking with her corgi, Murray, and is always traveling and learning new things about wellness and entrepreneurship!
