Anne complements her practice of Chinese Medicine with Functional Medicine and Paleo nutrition to effectively serve patients suffering from chronic immune and inflammatory conditions. Anne has been using a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, meditation and nutrition to help reverse chronic digestion, skin and autoimmune reactions with great results for over 20 years. Anne served for 7 years as an acupuncture college instructor and as an acupuncturist and herbalist at The Immune Enhancement Project, a center dedicated to helping patients recover from autoimmune disease. Anne is also the author of The Autoimmune Paleo Breakthrough, which proposes the autoimmune protocol as the go to template in the Functional Medicine care model. To work with Anne directly, please schedule a case review.
Anne first became interested in Chinese Medicine and received her first acupuncture treatments during a year in Taiwan that she spent after studying Chinese language and Human Development at Cornell University. She later decided to pursue a Master’s Degree in Chinese Medicine due in large part to her personal experience with chronic autoimmune reactions in the joints and eyes. Rather than simply wanting to treat the symptoms of her condition, Anne became deeply interested in detecting and treating the root cause of the disease. This, in turn, led her down the path of studying Functional Medicine, nutrigenomics, and Paleo nutrition to go along with her work in Chinese Medicine and acupuncture. Functional Medicine utilizes the latest laboratory testing to uncover the underlying cause of disease. Nutrigenomics is the science of how food “speaks” to our genes. And Paleo nutrition offers the most effective dietary template for halting chronic disease. Anne’s study of Functional Medicine included advanced training with Dr. Datis Kharrazian, one of the field’s leading practitioners. Many of the concepts in Functional Medicine were presaged by and derived from the concepts in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Both consider the underlying causes of disease expression and work to restore greater health and vitality.
Anne will work closely with you to uncover the root causes of your symptoms and to overcome your condition. The missing links to health are restored with nutrient dense foods, meditation and relaxation along with testing for underlying causes. Depending on your symptoms, Anne may also recommend advanced laboratory tests for gluten and/or other food sensitivities, GI imbalances, adrenal and blood sugar imbalances, hypothyroid, autoimmune thyroid, anemia, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, leaky gut, hidden infections, methylation defects etc. As a crucial component of reversing autoimmune reactions, Anne recommends a tailored version of the Paleo diet. The use of a personalized diet, in combination with natural medicine, contributes to a marked reduction in autoimmune symptoms. At her San Francisco clinic or on Skype, Anne can help you uncover the root causes of your chronic symptoms and guide you in testing and treating skin, digestion, and immune imbalances with real food and natural medicine.
