Dr. Lynne Murfin

Founder and Medical Director

About Dr. Murfin

Dr. Murfin is wholeheartedly focused on her life’s mission to help people heal and achieve extraordinary outcomes. She believes that health is more than merely the absence of disease. It is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social wellbeing through the creation of a whole and meaningful life. Dr. Murfin leaves no stone unturned to determine the root cause of illness or imbalance.


Guided by a long term vision to make functional medicine more widely accessible and ultimately available to all, it is time to enlarge our research, publishing, and teaching capabilities. We are now poised to transition into a larger institute. We are transitioning Lynne Murfin MD to Linden & Arc Vitality Institute.  Welcome!
