Dr. Lauryn Lax OT is a Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OT), who graduated from Belmont University in 2014 with her degree in OT. She has multiple health certifications including foundational AFMCP training with the Institute for Functional Medicine, certification as a Fitness Professional through ACE and Level 1 CrossFit and certification as a nutritional therapy practitioner through the Nutritional Therapy Association.
She is currently practicing functional medicine in Austin, Texas incorporating nutritional therapy, lifestyle counseling, fitness coaching and specifically coaching for those recovering from Eating Disorders.
Her talents, however, extend far beyond the realms of nutrition and functional medicine as she lives out her passionate mission for bringing wellness to all who seek it. Her smiles, joy and prayers alone are healing people hundreds of miles away.
In this conversation, we delve into the role of spirituality and faith as part of a functional approach to medicine, we lay out a practical 5 step process for engaging, educating and supporting patients through lifestyle and habit change, we share our visions for healing, incorporating mindfulness into all aspects of one’s life, and we even tackle how we are and hope to shake up the current paradigm of chronic disease care.
