Gretchen Perry, MSN and board certified family nurse practitioner, is pleased to announce the opening of her practice, Fundamental Healing, which serves the greater Oakland County area. Perry pursued her advanced degree to help others overcome challenges similar to those she experienced in treating herself and family members. Using a functional medicine model, she treats conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, chronic infection, other autoimmune issues, mood disorders and much more. This has helped her develop a special empathy when working with patients.

"At Fundamental Healing," says Perry, "I use a holistic approach to heal the body in the least invasive, most natural means possible. You don’t have to be ill to appreciate the benefits of our comprehensive approach to healthcare. Our mission is to help patients achieve the highest expression of health, and we achieve this through the investigation of many factors based on a functional medicine paradigm.”

Perry received her degree in nursing from Michigan State University, and as an RN, spent time working on the maternal child health unit at Royal Oak Beaumont. After a few years she entered the pharmaceutical industry and learned about clinical trials, competitive selling and marketing. In 2005, autism hit her personally, and when westernized medicine could not provide the answers she was seeking, she began to dig deeper.

"It was then that I was introduced to functional medicine," she says, "and over time my knowledge and passion for this new kind of medicine grew." In 2015 Perry graduated from Walden University’s accelerated MSN-FNP (Master of Science in Nursing/Family Nurse Practitioner) program and achieved dual board certification from the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners and the American Nurse Credentialing Center. Perry offers both in-office and in-home appointments.

Fundamental Healing is located at 29829 Telegraph Road, Suite 203, Southfield. For more information, call 248-601-0234 or visit
