About | Ann Shippy MD

Dr. Ann Shippy

Credentials & Professional Experience

I use cutting-edge science, innovative testing, research and genetic information to determine and address the root causes of health issues – not simply treat the symptoms of illness. I approach each patient as a whole person, and we form a therapeutic partnership to achieve the highest standard of health.

I began my career in medicine when the traditional approach and application of allopathic medicine could not solve my own health issues. I was working as an IBM engineer for over a decade when I became so frustrated with my  healthcare situation that I decided to leave the field of engineering and attend The University of Texas Medical School.

My approach to medicine is a unique blend of measured, precise data with a heart-felt and sympathetic attitude towards all of my patients. This method stems from my engineering background and my own failed experience as a patient of traditional medicine. I treat patients suffering from any combination of physical, environmental or genetic issues.

The science and research that directly relates our environment and nutrition to health prompted me to found two health-based foundations. My 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. #EVERYLIFEWELL.

My desire, purpose and plan to make EVERY LIFE WELL®

“The capacity of the human body to heal inspires me every day. When the body has all the nutrients that it needs, genetic factors are fully compensated for, and the body is no longer overwhelmed by toxicity, stress, or infection …extraordinary and complete healing can happen.”
