Information for Patients

From the practitioner: About My Practice

We offer Functional Medicine, Regenerative Medicine, Nutrigenomics, and Holistic Nutrition consultations for all ages and Primary Care, newborn through 65 years of age. Paula Kruppstadt MD DABP FAAP IFMCP is the Founder, CEO & Medical Provider Team Leader of Hope for Healing. She is one of few board certified pediatricians in the world who are certified IFMCP. Because Dr. Kruppstadt is a PANS/PANDAS expert, Texas Governor Greg Abbott appointed her to be a member of the Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome Advisory Council. The Council advises the commission and the Texas legislature on research, diagnosis, treatment, and education related to pediatric acute-onset neuropsychiatric syndrome.
