About Ruthie Harper, MD

Dr. Ruthie Harper


Dr. Harper began her career as a Board Certified Internist and shortly thereafter was promoted to Emergency Room Director at Doctor’s Hospital of Jefferson in Louisiana. Here she quickly realized that while traditional medicine provides ways to treat the symptoms of disease, it is not designed to find their underlying cause. She retraced her medical training back to basic biochemistry, understanding that if a person had a perfect cellular function, they would be optimally healthy and disease-free. This knowledge led Dr. Harper to research and develop scientifically based programs and products that move beyond the temporary fixes that traditional medicine often provides to offer an integrative or functional approach to health. Through this approach, Dr. Harper is able to find and resolve the root cause of your disease and helps you regain your health, energy, and vitality. She has been able to transform both the health and the appearance of thousands of patients worldwide.


Dr. Harper founded Ruthie Harper MD, her internationally recognized practice in Austin, Texas, in 1999. Since that time, she has consulted with more than 10,000 patients and offers the latest services and techniques in health and wellness in the medical division of her practice, as well as non-surgical rejuvenation and skincare in the cosmetic portion of her practice. Her ongoing success serving the health and beauty industries is based primarily on her innovative integration of research, nutritional science, advanced functional testing, and advanced aesthetics.


Dr. Harper provides patients with scientifically developed health protocols that transcend the temporary fixes offered by pharmaceuticals or other traditional medical treatments. Instead, she utilizes innovative programs that focus on nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes, bioidentical hormones, and breakthrough beauty treatments. She is passionate about disease prevention and believes that aging does not need to be associated with disease and degeneration.
