Have you ever wondered, “Is there a holistic pediatrician near me?” Are you looking for a combination of quality conventional medicine and alternative therapies? I provide virtual consultative care throughout North Carolina and California using functional health and integrative therapies.  Parents, if you want in person primary care, check out my page for holistic primary care in Asheville, NC. 

If your child is struggling with recurring tummy aches, headaches, constant sickness, anxiety, depression, difficulty focusing recurring rashes, or feeling run down, I understand the toll it takes on your family. As a functional medicine pediatrician, I focus on root cause medicine through a variety of  healing therapies to support your child’s ongoing health needs.

Imagine breaking free from the cycle of symptom management and finding comprehensive solutions for your child's health. Our practice focuses on whole health and functional medicine, combining the best of conventional and alternative therapies to address your child's unique needs

Hi, I'm Dr. Ellie

DO: Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine

FAAP: Fellow of the Academy of Pediatrics

Fellowship in Integrative and Functional Medicine

I'm Dr. Ellie MacGregor, and I'm often asked, "What is Integrative Health and Wellness for Pediatrics?" Simply put, it's an approach that sees your child as a whole being—body, mind, and spirit. With a focus on your family's unique lifestyle and the special bond between you and your child, we blend the best of conventional and alternative therapies to prioritize your child's health.

So why did I become a pediatric functional medicine doctor? After years in primary pediatric care, I felt frustrated with a one size fits all approach. I decided to focus on whole child pediatrics and became driven to advance my studies in Integrative and Functional Medicine.  I saw the transformative power of combining traditional and holistic approaches from both the perspective of a doctor, and as a patient myself. Having been diagnosed with celiac disease and other autoimmune disorders, I live daily having to manage my own symptoms and have gone through the process of changing my entire lifestyle to keep myself healthy and happy. I know from experience that change is hard and I want to be there to help others through the transition with ease.

I have always been an advocate to incorporate integrative medicine with the various clinics I have worked for, however, during the global pandemic, the limitations of what I could practice became clear. Many children struggled with new found anxiety, depression, and physical symptoms, yearning for a comprehensive approach beyond what conventional medicine could provide. Inspired by their needs, Middle Path Integrative Pediatrics was born. Today, I work with families in California and North Carolina, with dreams of touching lives nationwide. I believe in the concept of "slow medicine," taking the time to build strong doctor-patient relationships and thoroughly explore health concerns while healing through root cause medicine.
 
As an integrative/functional medicine pediatrician, I'm committed to offering holistic solutions. I'm not just a pediatrician—I'm also a yogi, celiac warrior, and hiking enthusiast. 

Join me on the journey to whole health for your child and your family.
