Meet Our Team

Dr. Marie Andersson

Dr. Andersson has been practicing functional medicine for 20 years. She has raised 4 children and now has 3 grand daughters, 2 dogs and a cat. Along with her family, her practice is her passion and primary commitment. Besides office visits, she has multiple avenues of communication available for her patients, including phone, email, text messages and Skype. She prides herself on being available to her patients, so that they feel supported throughout their healing process.

She teaches monthly classes, and has ongoing support groups for patients to help them with diet and life style changes. These groups meet nearly every week to share experiences, recipes, challenges and successes.

She specializes in autoimmune disorders, such as: Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Psoriasis, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Spectrum disorders, Crohn's disease, as well as hormonal imbalances (such as PCOS and infertility), overall GI complaints, ASD (spectrum disorders), methylation, genetic analysis, pre and post natal nutrition, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and overall natural primary care. She has a patient centered office that has an onsite phlebotomist and lab to make testing easier and more convenient for her patients. The clinic also offers massage therapy, Neuro-Feedback, colon hydrotherapy and chiropractic services.

Primarily her mission is education. No one can heal someone else. A doctor does not heal, a doctor teaches, guides, advises and the individual heals themselves with life-style, diet, and emotional-physical-spiritual balance.

Dr. Andersson's primary focus is on the patient. She does testing and exhaustive research when necessary, to discover the root cause of the disorder, so that the patient can be treated properly. And she spends a lot of time with her patients to develop relationships that are most conducive to healing, positive life changes and optimum wellness.
