Hi, I'm Lara Salyer.

You'll want to sit next to me in class. 🤓

I was that kid in school who wrote detailed, organized notes (and drew cartoons all over the pages!). Everything was color-coded, and you couldn't believe someone could be this excited about learning.

Fast forward, decades later, and my efficient note-taking skills paid off as I resigned from family medicine to build my own functional medicine micropractice rural Wisconsin town.

I've kept notes on what works, what doesn't, and made everything as automated, streamlined, and colorful as possible.

Combined with my training with the Flow Research Collective, and I have built a library of notes, drawings, SOPs, and templates that I love to share!

As your Chief Creativity Catalyst™, I help you create their own flow-channeled medical practice that optimizes your unique gifts.

With radical clarity and the right guide, anything is possible.

This is how you find your muse.

As children, creativity is our effortless language. We play games and explore our world with delight. In the journey to adulthood, our innate brilliance is insidiously tarnished by responsibilities to be dutiful partners, coworkers, friends, and citizens.

We tell ourselves to be grateful. Don’t complain. But what if you’re given the gift of a near-death experience that forces your eyes wide open to the beauty of a creative life again?

This is what happened to me, a burned-out, family “doctor mom” in the rural Midwest who rediscovered my dormant creativity and saved my career. Just when I wanted to quit medicine entirely, this experience inspired my grassroots mission to incorporate art and creativity back into medical care. 

Candid and sassy, expressive and fearless, Right Brain Rescue is both a touching memoir and a call to action for all of us to color outside the lines and reinvent life on our own terms. 

This is my story of how I did everything “right” to enjoy a triumphant career as a family physician, but crumbled under the same pressure as many others in conventional “factory medicine.”

It’s a story about how I bravely walked away from a stable, profitable career into a blank canvas of the unknown in order to live a fully authentic and awake life.

This is not a self-help book or a how-to book, but you might recognize some self and help in these pages. Right Brain Rescue is a literary “creativity prescription” that will inspire you to think differently about how you use your energy, explore your values, and care for your body and mind so you can become the most sparkly version of yourself. 

“You have a way of distilling down very complicated topics and make them so easy to understand. And you’re so relatable!”

“I am inspired to think of my creativity in a completely different way now. Because of your workshop, I’ll be eating differently too.”

"Your infographics are amazing! Thank you for making them! I use them EVERY DAY in my clinical practice and it makes my office visits faster and more efficient because patients understand things better."
