Meet Dr. Laramie Wheeler, DO
Dr. Wheeler is a board-certified family physician who has been interested in natural healing her entire life. Growing up, she always had a keen interest in the healing arts and studied many different modalities of healing long before she entered medical school. She completed her undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University after which she attended Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She then completed a residency in Family Medicine through Idaho State University. While in residency, she was introduced to Dr. Jean Claude Lapraz, a medical doctor from France, who founded “endobiogeny,” a method of healing based on balancing the body in its most holistic sense.
From him she learned a great deal about herbs and supplements and their role in healing. She also learned how to approach the body as a whole rather than just compartmentalizing different organ systems. Although she enjoyed her practice in conventional medicine, she felt that there was much to be desired in its approach to chronic and degenerative conditions.
Her primary goal is to help people feel well, and for this purpose she has changed her practice to focus more on endobiogeny and natural approaches to healing. In her experience the best results usually come from plant-based therapies via diet, herbal supplements, essential oils, etc. She is grateful to live in a time of amazing medical advances and strives to gain education in both eastern and western philosophies. She hopes to continue to help forge a bridge between the two worlds.
She currently owns and operates an integrative family medical center in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where she enjoys life with her husband and six children.
