At Dr. Autoimmune a new paradigm of healthcare exists using proven principles to listen and understand your health goals. Compassion, concern and knowledge underscore a passion in using the most modern forms of health-care including Functional Medicine, Clinical Nutrition, Thyroid Care and Neurofeedback. Functional medicine uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s symptoms and their physiological function.

Functional medicine is personalized medicine that deals with primary prevention and underlying causes instead of symptoms for serious chronic disease. It is a science-based field of health care that is grounded in the following principles:

  • Biochemical individuality – One person’s optimum health is not another’s.
  • Patient-centered, emphasis on “patient care” rather than “disease care,” – we treat more than your symptoms
  • Dynamic balance of internal and external factors – emotional and environmental health is critically considered
  • Web-like interconnections of physiological factors. The body functions as an orchestrated network of interconnected systems, rather than autonomous systems functioning individually and without effect on each other – gut > brain, brain > gut, for example
  • Health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease
  • Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance health span

We look at the underlying causes of disease, rather than focusing on the “name it”, then “tame it” game of modern medicine. These imbalances may consist of one or many of the following:

  • Hormonal and neurotransmitter imbalances
  • Detoxification imbalances
  • Energy or metabolic imbalances
  • Immune imbalances
  • Inflammatory imbalances
  • Digestive, absorptive and microbiological imbalances
  • Structural imbalances from cellular membrane function to the musculoskeletal system – whether you can move freely greatly impacts your health

Our functional medicine practice uses the patient’s story as a key tool for integrating diagnosis, signs and symptoms, and evidence of clinical imbalances into a comprehensive approach to improve both the patient’s symptoms and his or her  physiological function.

Dr Ian helped me overcome many health problems. When I initially went to see him, I was suffering from hypo-thyroidism. With his help, I am no longer hypo-thyroid. Amazing Results! He is highly recommended!

I initially started seeing Dr Ian for intense tiredness, digestive problems, low thyroid and a slew of other symptoms. He has been so amazing in supporting me to continuously make improvements and the results have been incredible. I highly recommend him, he is intuitive, wise and a high integrity person that I respect and value!

- Susie

Ian really knows A LOT about thyroid problems! His knowledge and confidence convinced me to make the lifestyle changes -including no gluten, no sugar, and more exercise-that are essential to healing hormonal imbalances and to staying well. Several months later, I feel stronger, more energetic, and am happier than I have felt in a long time. Many thanks for all your help!
