I am Dr. Christine Maren. Thanks for visiting! Welcome to my corner of the world, where I share my passions for functional medicine, holistic nutrition & healthy living. As a physician and a mother of two, my own journey to health & wellness brought me here. I have learned that good health sets the foundation for happiness, productivity & longevity. Are you on a journey to achieve the highest expression of health & live your life to the fullest? Let me be your guide.
I am a board-certified physician trained by the Institute for Functional Medicine & Amy Myers M.D. Utilizing a Functional Medicine approach, I work with patients to identify and address the underlying causes of disease. I will search for a root cause utilizing advanced lab testing and will seek the most gentle way to help your body restore balance. My mission is to empower you to achieve the highest expression of health and live your life to the fullest.
Visit my online store for the supplements I have personally researched and recommend. You’ll find my favorite brands, including Xymogen, Designs For Health, Pure Encapsulations, Thorne, Metagenics, Ortho Molecular Products, Nordic Naturals, Quicksilver Scientific, Klaire Labs & others.
To all the new mamas experiencing hair loss; incredible, enduring fatigue; debilitating brain fog - I want to just tell every one of you that IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE LIKE THAT! I was about 10 months postpartum when my "IBS" was bad enough that I decided I needed to start trying to find help again. I had seen GIs off and on for about 10 years... Dr. Maren gives me hope for the future of medicine and breathes life into this poor, crippled industry! You will leave feeling listened to and heard, and most of all, hopeful! My brain fog dissipated almost immediately and I could care for my kiddos in ways I hadn't been able to - looking forward even to spending days with them, rather than dreading them because I had. no. energy. She has made such a profound impact on my and my family's life. Please seek her out! She is queen.

Dr. Maren introduced our family to the world of functional medicine, and we are forever grateful to her for that. She is smart, intuitive and empathetic. She helped us understand and interpret complicated labs, provided recommendations for supplements and a healthy lifestyle. We have since consulted with Dr Maren on numerous issues, and she always provides very helpful advice and experience-backed expertise. Our whole family is on the path to wellness after discovering numerous food allergies and autoimmune disease causes. Dr Maren is great doctor, who challenges the rhetoric of traditional, conventional medicine. She looked for root causes and cares about our journey to recovery. We are so thankful to have found her.

You, my dear practitioner, have been such an amazing blessing in my life. Your warmth and wealth of knowledge is truly unmatched from anyone else I have ever entrusted my health with. It's so clear how much you care about your patients and the information and guidance I received from you was key to my healing. I'm so grateful to have worked with you to then allow me to conceive and carry our sweet baby girl in a healthy and strong way!

I will never be able to thank you enough for what you have helped [my sister] achieve since her Sjogrens diagnosis. Although she has challenges she faces every day, you have enabled her to have a quality of life that a lot of people with Sjogrens do not have. I feel very blessed that [my sister] found you!! Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! I know wherever you are you will always do amazing things.

After years of being seen by dozens of doctors, Dr. Maren was highly recommended as a place that I might find help. Living out of state meant it was a big step, but one I am glad I took! Dr. Maren has been a real champion for my health and has put together puzzle pieces that no one else has been able to! She has shown true compassion and sympathy. I really feel confident that Dr. Maren has me on the right path to health and won’t stop digging for answers until I am completely well! I am so thankful for Dr. Maren for all that she has done for me on this journey!
