In this episode of Conners Clinic Live, Dr. Kevin Conners hosts Laura Frontiero, a nurse practitioner with extensive experience in both conventional and functional medicine. Laura discusses her 21-year tenure at Kaiser Permanente, where she specialized in areas such as internal medicine, osteoporosis, and women’s health. Despite her initial commitment to conventional preventive medicine, Laura gradually shifted towards functional medicine after realizing the limitations of traditional practices in truly preventing disease.

Laura shares her journey of integrating functional medicine into her practice, focusing on root causes of chronic inflammatory diseases. She emphasizes the difference between preventive screenings and genuine preventive measures, highlighting the importance of addressing underlying issues such as chronic infections, environmental toxins, nutrient deficiencies, and emotional traumas.

The conversation delves into Laura’s courageous decision to leave Kaiser Permanente, forfeiting a substantial pension and Cadillac insurance, due to her opposition to mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations. She now runs a successful virtual functional medicine practice, helping clients worldwide tackle chronic health issues by addressing root causes and promoting true health and wellness.

Throughout the episode, both Dr. Conners and Laura stress the importance of personalized care, love, and compassion in the healing process, contrasting it with the depersonalized approach of conventional medicine. Laura’s story is a testament to the transformative power of functional medicine and the profound impact of holistic, patient-centered care.
