Harriet McCoy has dedicated the majority of her healthcare career to the practice of functional and regenerative medicine. She began her work in regenerative medicine in 1982 while working for the Pritikin Longevity Center, the first nationally recognized longevity center in the U.S. She was able to experience first-hand the effects of Mr. Pritikin’s regenerative approach to medicine, when, while following his program, she transitioned from a mediocre cyclist to a national-class competitor, competing as a finalist in the 1984 Olympic Trials, and completing the 1985 Women’s Tour de France as a member of the U.S.National Team.
Throughout the years, Harriet McCoy has worked in multiple areas of medicine, including family practice, orthopedics, neurology, bioidentical hormone replacement, stem cell therapy, and peptide therapy, all with a primary focus on improving longevity and maximizing performance. She has completed a fellowship in Regenerative and Nutritional Medicine through the Metabolic Medical Institute, and is a diplomate in the Clinical Science of Anti-aging. She was a member of the first graduating class in the U.S. for peptide certification in 2019. She has advanced training and experience in nutrition, weight loss, exercise physiology, bioidentical hormone replacement, peptides, stem cell therapy, and brain health. She continues to pursue her passion for improving quality of life through optimizing wellness and function, by offering individualized “upstream” healthcare, based on biochemical makeup and response to treatment, while focusing on the root cause of symptoms.
