Meet Three Past Graduates OfThe Whole Health Medicine Institute

If you or someone you love has been considering enrolling in the Whole Health Medicine Institute, but you’re not quite sure whether this is the right fit for your particular needs—or whether this is the right year to enroll—join me for the free call about the Whole Health Medicine Institute (WHMI) with past graduates.

The graduates who will be talking about how WHMI changed their lives and how they took what they learned and customized it into their own unique callings. These three physicians will tell their stories and also be on point to answer any questions you might have about the program from the student perspective. Yes, these are three of our star students, and they’ve joined the WHMI faculty this year, so they might not represent every student who has ever taken the program. But I’ve told them not to hold back- so feel free to ask them even your most skeptical, doubting questions.




Join Lissa along with Whole Health Medicine Institute graduates Mary Louder, MD, Christine Gibson, MD, and Kay Corpus, MD 


Mary Louder, DO is board certified in family medicine and integrative holistic medicine. Her practice serves patients by seeking root causes and creating a healing environment so the body’s self-healing capacity can naturally occur. The practice is hybridized in both practice style and billing: and they ACCEPT MOST INSURANCES and have cash services for various treatments.

It is her belief that in using both insurance and cash, there is a sweet spot that emerges for healing, and for financial feasibility.

Her practice uses genomic testing to incorporate your genetic tendencies and functional testing to see just where you are at and what is needed to support yourself in life.

Mary  feels the Mind Body Spirit approach is the most accurate and comprehensive way to provide medical care.

Mary is originally from Michigan. She graduated with a B.S. in Education and Athletic Training from the University of Montana and then worked towards a graduate degree at Michigan State University. Dr. Louder then enrolled and graduated from Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1993. Dr. Louder earned her post doctoral training in both a general osteopathic internship and family medicine residency in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Dr. Louder lives in Longmont with her husband Andy and their labradoodle Lucy. In her spare time, Dr. Louder loves to fly fish, enjoy nature and the outdoors, as well as researching and writing on different medical topics.
