About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Ann Shippy. Ann Shippy, MD is a physician, scientist, engineer, and mom who works with science, clinical data, and research to provide the knowledge and tools needed to achieve optimal health. She is board certified in Internal Medicine and certified in Functional Medicine. She holds a Doctorate in Medicine from the University of Texas, a Master of Science in Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She uses cutting-edge science, innovative testing, research and genetic information to determine and address the root causes of health issues – not to simply treat the symptoms of illness. She approaches each patient as a whole person and forms a therapeutic partnership to achieve the highest standard of health. Her approach to medicine is a unique blend of measured, precise data with a heart-felt and sympathetic attitude towards all of her patients. This method stems from her engineering background and her own failed experience as a patient of traditional medicine. She treats patients suffering from any combination of physical, environmental, or genetic issues. Her hope is to contribute to and inspire a positive movement towards solving some of the more complex health challenges we face today – and to help create a world where everyone has the opportunity for wellness.
