Are you interested in the exact diet and lifestyle recommendations Dr. Shook has used with his thyroid patients for over 8 years?
We strive to utilize the latest science and testing to help investigate the root cause of Hashimoto’s and autoimmune conditions.
Dr. Shook uses Functional Medicine to help investigate what is causing, and driving the autoimmune process in Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
Do you need help?
We work with people across the US, and in other countries via phone, Skype and Facetime, and we can get testing done at a lab near you.

3 Surprising Hashimoto’s Facts:
- Hashimoto’s is the #1 autoimmune condition in the United States.
- Approximately 8 out of 10 people diagnosed as hypothyroid have Hashimoto’s and have never been tested.
- It’s estimated 1 in 8 women have Hashimoto’s.
For most people with hypothyroidism, the reason they have low thyroid symptoms is Hashimoto’s.
There are at least 24 ways your thyroid can dysfunction, and only 1 of those 24 problems responds to thyroid hormone replacement.
Our current healthcare system only has one tool (thyroid hormone replacement) for all 24 problems, and this is why most people still feel bad even though their lab tests are normal.
It is our goal to change what we consider an unacceptable standard of care, an underdiagnosis of Hashimoto’s, and poor, to non-existent support strategies to encourage healing and improve your quality of life.
Because my clinical focus is on improving thyroid problems, I know that healing the immune system is key to improving Hashimoto's and improving your quality of life. We look at each person as an individual. You can have 24 people with low thyroid symptoms, and each person will have a different problem causing the same symptoms!
You cannot treat everyone with low thyroid symptoms the same, it is huge mistake, and one of the reasons so many people continue to feel bad even though their labs look normal.
By looking in great detail at your health history and advanced laboratory testing, we can often see the individualized drivers or causes of hashimoto’s and autoimmune conditions. If you look at the person’s health, and I mean really take time to see what is happening to them, helping hashimoto’s and autoimmune conditions become much less a mystery.
