We strive to utilize the latest science and testing to help investigate the factors contributing to Hashimoto’s and autoimmunity.
Dr. Shook focuses on the delivery of Precision Medicine through Epigenetic evaluation and utilization of Functional Diagnostic Testing.
If you need help, we consult 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 approximately 24 ways your thyroid physiology may dysfunction, and only 1 of those 24 problems is low thyroid levels.
Our current healthcare system and the providers working in it, do the best that they can utilizing the tools they have to help people with thyroid problems. Unfortunately, many of the problems that can contribute to symptoms of low thyroid function, like inflammation or elevations in estrogens may not respond to conventional treatment, resulting in many people still not feeling well even though their lab tests are normal.
It is our goal to help people become more empowered through self-education so that they can help themselves, and be better partners with their healthcare providers. We need to work together if we are going to make a difference in the epidemic of thyroid dysfunction and autoimmunity.
