Dr. Christa O'Leary, D.O.
Dr. O'Leary obtained a B.S. in Biology from the University of Dallas with Cum Laude honors. She chose the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine because of its "whole person" approach. What is Osteopathic Medicine?
Dr. O’Leary completed an internship and residency at Scott and White Memorial Hospital, located in Temple, Texas. She completed her board certification in Family Medicine and practiced in Colleyville, TX for eight years.
After a few years in practice, the frustration Dr. O'Leary experienced with the current U.S. medical model led her to search for alternative methods of care. She practiced in New Zealand and was introduced to native Maori medicinal plants, mind-body practices, and holistic care.
Upon return to the U.S., she sought out functional, regenerative, and integrative medicine courses and obtained a board certification from the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine.
This journey through varied health and medical models, along with an insatiable desire to learn new things, has created the framework for Dr. O'Leary's practice. It's through prayer and divine wisdom which empowers the healing journey of our patients.

Nutritional Genetic Testing
Ever wonder why your weight is vastly different from your friend’s but you eat very similarly? Or why do you have diabetes and your neighbor does not despite poor eating habits? What about the differences we see in how we tolerate stressful events?
All of these questions are influenced by our unique genetic variations.
Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna
We live in a toxic world. Some toxins we can avoid, while others we can't. It's never been more important to support your body in its natural detoxification efforts. Regular infrared sauna sessions are beneficial for any wellness regimen.
The focus of our nutrition program is to address the root cause of a person's health issue rather than focusing on a diagnosis. We are dedicated to formulating personalized nutrition protocols based on a person's biochemical individuality.
Supplements & Vitamins
Not all supplements are created equal. As a service to our patients, we curate the highest of quality. Check out our top picks or have your vitamins shipped to your door.
IV Therapy & Injections

Advanced Lab Testing
We work diligently to help each patient obtain the testing they need to find answers, at the best price available for each situation. Together we discover the inner-workings of your body, and what therapies would be most beneficial.
