Laura Deleruyelle, DNP, MSN, FNP-BC, ABAAHP
Laura Deleruyelle holds a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from Case Western Reserve University. She is board-certified in family practice by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and a diplomate of the American Academy of Anti-aging and Regenerative medicine. She has been practicing family medicine for 20 years and integrative medicine for 7 years. Over the last five years, she has incorporated anti-aging and regenerative medicine into her practice as well.
Using an integrative approach allows her to provide a customized plan for each patient. She focuses on the cause of her patient’s symptoms rather than just solely treating their symptoms. She emphasizes the importance of using food as “thy medicine” and exercise as a prescription for optimal health. She does request that her patients participate in their own care so that doctor and patient are working together as a “team”.
She is also experienced in the art of balancing hormones and has been prescribing compounded bioidentical hormone replacement therapy for her patients since 2004. Her research conducted at Case Western Reserve University on compounded bio-identical hormones in comparison to synthetic conjugated equine estrogen and/or progestin has been published as an adaptation of her doctoral thesis in a series of articles in the International Journal of Pharmaceutical compounding (volume 20, No 5, 6 and volume 21, No 1) called Menopausal Symptom Relief and Side Effects: Compounded BHRT and Synthetic HRT, parts 1-3.
Dr. Laura holds a total of five degrees. She obtained her Master of Science Nursing degree in family practice from the University of Tampa, Bachelors of Arts degree in Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology from the University of Florida, Associate of Applied Science Nursing degree from The University of the State of New York and Associate of Arts degree from Palm Beach Junior College.
