Meet Marylee Marre, NP
Marylee Marre, NP is a Board-Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with a specialty in holistic and functional medicine. She has been in the medical field for 10 years, spending 7 of those years in the emergency department and critical care settings at renown hospitals across the country including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (Neurosurgical ICU), UCLA Medical Center (Surgical-Liver Transplant ICU), Northwestern Memorial Hospital (Surgical ICU), Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (PACU) and NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital (PACU).
She feels that her background in western medicine created a very strong foundation. However, she feels the western medicine model has its own set of limitations when it comes to investigating difficult-to-diagnose symptoms and treating chronic conditions. She was discouraged by the endless “band-aid” approach and felt a burning desire to change her approach in order to provide better care for her patients. As a result, she began implementing a root-cause approach to identifying the reasons why her patients were feeling the way they were and treating those causes such as environmental toxicants, adrenal dysfunction, gut dysbiosis, SIBO, mitochondrial dysfunction, etc. With this approach she is able to guide the body back to homeostasis, the way it was originally designed to function. Healing takes time but it is well worth the wait! As Marylee always likes to say, “The body is miraculous, given the right tools it can truly heal itself!”
Through her training in both conventional care and holistic approaches to care, she blends the best of both worlds to help her patients formulate a truly comprehensive, customized treatment plan that honors their unique needs. Marylee has been featured in the BIOHACKERS YouTube series with HigherDose Founders Lauren Berlingeri and Katie Kaps, DailyDose Longevity Webinar Series featuring Dr. Kara Fitzgerald (Author of the book Younger You) and DailyDose Founder Tricia Williams, Well+Good article “How To Make Sure You’re Eating Enough Glutathione, the ‘Mother of All Antioxidants’” by Emily Laurence and Michelle Shapiro’s (Holistic Registered Dietician and Podcast Host of “Quiet the Diet”) Wellness Map. She is a member of the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), attends IFM’s annual international conferences and is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). Lastly, she has mentored with New York Center for Integrative Health’s very own Naturopathic Doctor and Director of NYCIH, Dr. Robert Kachko.
She is extremely passionate in providing the most individualized, detailed and comprehensive approach that each and every patient deserves!
