The Benefits of a Healthy Diet, Mindful Meditation, and Nutrition Testing
“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.” Those are the words of Dr. Mowll’s guest today — physician and engineer, Dr. Ann Shippy.
Dr. Ann Shippy began her career in medicine when the traditional approach and application of allopathic medicine could not solve her own health issues. She had worked as an IBM engineer for over a decade but left the field of engineering to go to medical school at the University of Texas in pursuit of better health. Today she uses cutting-edge science, innovative testing, research, and genetic information to determine and address the root causes of health issues. She approaches each patient as a whole person and forms a therapeutic partnership to achieve the highest of health.
In today’s interview, Dr. Shippy discusses the most important lab tests that she recommends for patients with diabetes, how to support mitochondrial function to improve energy metabolism, why she recommends the paleo diet for most her patients, the importance of fiber, as well as the importance of magnesium. Dr. Shippy also talks about the link between environmental toxins, stress, and blood sugar health; and how to begin meditating to decrease the stress response and improve blood sugar.
