Christine Bishara, MD is the founder of From Within Medicala medical wellness practice that places emphasis on the mind-body and gut-brain axis to prevent and manage disease.

With over 20 years of clinical experience, time and time again, Dr Bishara has discovered that the connection between these systems plays a significant role in disease prevention and management, but it has not been adequately addressed.

Consequently, her therapy involves a multidimensional and personalized approach that addresses multiple physical and biological factors, while focusing on strengthening the body’s immune system. This includes assessment of individual gut health, determination of anti-oxidant levels, and determination of neurotransmitter deficiencies.

The role of aesthetics and beauty complements both body and brain. Her individualized treatments incorporate state of the art non-invasive aesthetic procedures and personalized skin rejuvenation.

Dr. Bishara is also the creator of the Virtual Peel™– a medical grade face peel consultation that can be done at home through virtual step by step medical guidance so you can achieve the same results as an in office peel-but from the comfort of your own home.

My Personal Weight Loss Journey

My experience as a physician plus my own personal journey have taught me that overall health and wellness does not come from diet alone. It involves identifying multiple factors such as nutritional needs, hormonal imbalances and gut-brain components. My recommendations for each individual are unique and based on these findings.

Through a holistic and multidimensional approach involving all these factors, I will get you where you need to be and help you feel your best.
