Wendy Warner, MD, PC spent the first 14 years of her career in a conventional ObGyn practice. During this time, she was already beginning to practice integrative holistic medicine, and in 2004, she founded Medicine in Balance. That practice was comprised of many different practitioners all under the same roof, allowing access to many techniques and points of view. In this way, issues could be addressed in the most efficient and effective ways possible. In 2022, Dr Warner took the practice entirely online; this saves patients driving time and allows everyone to be seen in the comfort of their own homes.
Dr Warner’s vision is to help her patients achieve vital health by searching for underlying causes, be they physical or energetic, and addressing these rather than simply fixing symptoms. She is an excellent educator and uses these skills to help her patients understand the “why” of their particular treatment plan.
Unlike most functional medicine practitioners, Dr Warner is also a trained herbalist. This deep dive into botanical medicine affords her a new way of viewing and utilizing plants in healing. Plant medicine is much more complex than pharmaceuticals, and its power and subtlety continue to astound her.
Dr Warner is also a full mesa carrier in the Q’ero Tradition, Merkabah Medicine lineage. This aspect of her training allows her to sharpen her deep listening skills, her intuition and her connection with the energetic realms. All physical illness begins as a disturbance in the energy field, and if this is not addressed, physical symptoms many come and go but will likely never truly resolve.
Over the years, Dr Warner has been a President of the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine, the first organization that offered certification in integrative medicine. She served on the board of directors of that organization as well as the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine. She is an educator for the Institute for Functional Medicine and is a national lecturer. She is also often sought out for comments by national publications and websites. She authored a chapter on Menopause Management in Rakel’s Integrative Medicine text, 5th edition, and is a co-author of Boosting Your Immunity for Dummies.
