About Dr. Ingram
Ami Ingram, MD, is licensed to practice Medicine in North Carolina and Texas. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from North Carolina State University and her medical degree from Brody – East Carolina University School of medicine in Greenville, N.C.
Dr. Ingram spent several years working in a family practice, as well as in obstetrics. She kept noticing that many of the prescriptions she wrote included side effects that often required additional prescriptions for her patients. This created further side effects.
What was the root cause of their illness, she wondered. Was it possible to get upstream from their malady? Dr. Ingram's research soon took her to the relationship between the body's organs alongside the overlay of genetics, nutrition and lifestyle.
Through courses offered through the American College for Advancement in Medicine (ACAM), the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), North Carolina Integrative Medicine Society (NCIMS) and Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Ingram has developed a multi-faceted, natural approach to treat both existing conditions and get ahead of challenges that may present later in life.
Dr. Ingram lives in Greensboro, NC with her husband and two school-age children. She enjoys organic and hydroponic gardening, yoga and healthy cooking.
