Lonna Larsh is a Medical Doctor with a passion for helping to identify and treat the root causes of illness. She has been practicing family medicine in Santa Cruz for over 25 years. After a decade of working for Santa Cruz Medical Center (now PAMF), she grew frustrated with the corporate structure and demands to see more patients in less time. With a commitment to be more accessible to her patients and take the time needed to deeply listen, she left that practice in 2007 to start her own solo practice. Her interest in the roots of illness led her to complete a 10 year certification process through the Institute of Functional Medicine. She is now board certified in Functional Medicine, Integrative Medicine, and has maintained her Board Certification in Family Medicine. Along the way she has discovered that the deepest healing takes place when people are guided by a knowledgeable doctor to play an active role in their own health.
She founded Roots of Health in 2018 with the goal to educate people using holistic modalities and to offer the team support needed to help them attain optimal levels of health. She wants you to know that, with a proper diagnosis, a clear path forward, and a commitment to do what it takes to get well, you can enjoy better health not just in your time working together, but for the rest of your life. She lives in Santa Cruz with her husband, daughters, parents, two dogs, and a cat.
