About the Presenter

Based in Acton, Massachusetts serving patients from throughout Southern New England, Dr. Varese has been committed to the development of the Functional Medicine paradigm for over 30 years.

After obtaining her medical degree from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara in Mexico in 1979 and completing 4 years of hospital training in New York City, she opened her private practice in the spring of 1984. Dr. Varese is a second-generation physician in her family.

The longest area of expertise Dr. Varese has is the optimization of thyroid function. As soon as saliva testing became available, she added adrenal & all steroid hormone excellence to her roster. She has included the use of stool testing for GI and immune system assessment for over 2 decades. Dr. Varese has considered neurotransmitter measurements to be essential to all patient evaluations since incorporating it into her work in 2005.

All of Dr. Varese’s patients are given in-depth consultation so that a cohesive, individualized treatment plan can be devised using bio-identical hormone prescribing, nutritional supplements, herbal formulas and selective homeopathy. Dr. Varese very much enjoys her role as teacher and mentor to her patients as each one proceeds on a path toward living a healthy, happy life.
