Dr. Winstrom truly actually cares about long term deep lasting health. I believe so much in what she does and the difference she makes in people's health that I came to work for her after being a patient. Her other staff is former patients as well! Before seeing her, I was living with underdiagnosed hypothyroidism and after being tired for more than fifteen years I had solidified an idea of myself that I was just kinda lazy. At the same time I was an overacheiever, constantly working to overcome my laziness. It turns out I just needed a proper thyroid diagnosis and needed to learn about my own body's particular nutritional needs. I am so glad I was working with her when I got pregnant because my thyroid went crazy again with all the changes of pregnancy dipping quickly into some autoimmune issues. She worked with me so closely and helped me proactively work to pull myself out of autoimmune disease. She cares about people profoundly and it is just beautiful to see her work like a detective, research intently, wena folks off too many pharmaceuticals, and stick with folks who have complicated chronic illnesses as they unwind the threads over time. Whether she is a specialist in your particular condition or just the functional medicine doctor who you want to manage your overall care, she is just the most trustworthy person you will ever meet.

About me

Dr. Winstrom is a thriving example of the vitality and longevity she brings about in her patients. She has the unbounding energy and wit, which allows her to continually study emerging discoveries and fully live her passion for healing. She shines a lifetime of humble wisdom on those who seek her advice and is such a joy that her employees are all former patients.
She is certified by the Institute for Functional Medicine and continues courses with the institute ongoingly.
She studied gut health with the Functional Nutrition Lab's Andrea Nakayama.
She has a particular passion for holistic brain health as it relates to thyroid, hormones, mental clarity, and aging. She is Certified in the Bredesen Protocol.
After receiving her MD degree in Family Medicine, she practiced for over 30 years in Houston, TX where she was known as "The Good Old Fashioned Family Doc". She served on the Texas Medical Association's Ethics Board and taught at Baylor School of Medicine.
Never content that traditional medicine fully served these needs of her patients, she partnered with Eastern Medicine practitioners and studied many alternative and natural therapies on her own until she found a forever home in the emerging branch of Functional Medicine. She considers herself a lifelong student of Functional Medicine and the holistic healing arts.
When she is not seeing patients online, Dr. Winstrom runs an organic grass-fed cattle ranch and vegetable farm in Brenham, TX.

My Philosophy of Care

It all starts with listening, really hearing the patient's experience. Vitality comes naturally with learning about one's own body & spirit and then cultivating nurturing rituals accordingly. Sometimes the body tells us it needs some extra help to get to a point where it can heal from past imbalances. We use a combination of scientific testing and treatments from Holistic, Eastern Traditions and Functional Medicine. The body will heal itself given the conditions it needs.

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

We review the case BEFORE the first visit so that our first meeting is an opportunity to really dive in and find clues to the root cause of issues. By the end of the first visit, we have mapped out a short term course of action, usually a customized set of laboratory tests. During the second meeting we review these tests and what they mean and end with an individualized health plan to implement in your "bootcamp" phase.

My Inspiration

Since I was a child, I have been in awe of the body and find a true joy in serving others, especially freeing them from chronic illness. Throughout my training and years in practice, I was skeptical of the pharmaceutical-symptom approach and have been an eager life-long student, searching for ways to work with the body instead of controlling it. In Functional Medicine, I found a fit that tied together science and nature. What a time to be alive, with the new discoveries in this emerging branch!
