He completed a general medical internship and residency training in head and neck surgery ENT and allergy. After 20 years service in the US Army Medical Corps and practice in Colorado and Texas he founded Texas Integrative where he now offers a functional holistic approach to disease which treats the entire individual instead of each separate symptom.
Dr. Taylor left his practice in general Ears, Nose, and Throat after he realized that he had not received the tools in his traditional training to identify and reverse the root causes of chronic illness and premature aging. Having trained at one of the premier US Army Medical Centers and completed a successful career as a military physician, he sought additional education in functional, integrative, and anti-aging medicine where he learned to treat the individual holistically. In his general integrative medical practice he now treats individuals of all ages using an understanding of the role that an ever-increasing exposure to environmental toxins (both man-made and germ-made) play as the trigger and continuing cause of most chronic illness and premature aging. His approach combines the best of traditional Western medicine with the best of Holistic/Eastern medicine in an Integrated way.
Dr. Taylor has a special interest in the role that genetic and epigenetic factors play in the predisposition for disease by influencing important metabolic functions including methylation, detoxification, immune regulation, inflammation, hormonal and neurotransmitter balance. He is also a member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society and has a special interest in the role that chronic stealth infection plays in chronic illness.
Wally Taylor, MD, is a practicing physician with over thirty-five years of experience. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, he served as an ear, nose, and throat surgeon in the US Army, before settling in Alamosa, Colorado, with his family.
In his twenty years of work as an ENT doctor, Dr. Taylor routinely came across patients with severe and chronic autoimmune and inflammatory conditions and became frustrated at standard medicine’s limitations in treating these conditions.
Over the decades his practice has evolved to become a blend of western medicine and functional holistic care, in which the goal is to use the body’s natural ability to detoxify and repair.
Dr. Taylor currently lives in Austin, Texas. When he isn’t treating patients, he enjoys photography, cycling, and spending time with his family.
