More About the Author
Anne Angelone is a Licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist who complements her practice of Chinese Medicine with Functional Medicine and Paleo Nutrition to effectively treat patients suffering from autoimmune disease. For more than twenty years, Anne has been using a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicine, and nutrition to reverse chronic digestion, skin and autoimmune reactions to dramatically improve the health of her patients. In addition to operating her practice, Anne has served as an Acupuncture College instructor and as an Acupuncturist and Herbalist at The Immune Enhancement Project, an Acupuncture and Natural Medicine center dedicated to helping patients suffering from autoimmune disease. Anne is also the author of four e-books, including The Autoimmune Paleo Breakthrough.
Background & Training
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 Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), which is a result of inflammation from 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. Specific coursework with Dr. Kharrazian included: Functional Blood Chemistry Analysis, Mastering the Thyroid, Neurotransmitters and the Brain, Functional Endocrinology, Gluten Sensitivity, Leaky Gut and Autoimmunity, Neuroendocrine Immunology of Environmental Triggers.
Philosophy & Approach
Today, Anne is grateful for the opportunity to share her extensive learning and experience to help others dramatically alter the course of their autoimmune disease. Anne works closely with her patients to help them understand and overcome their condition. Depending on the patient's 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 intestine bacterial overgrowth, leaky gut, hidden infections and methylation defects.
As a crucial component of combatting autoimmune disease, Anne applies a tailored version of the Paleo diet to treat her patients. She has found that the use of a personalized diet, in combination with Natural Medicine and Functional Medicine practices, contributes to a marked reduction in autoimmune reactions.
It is Anne's hope--and indeed her mission in life--to share information so that her patients can more fully understand and more effectively overcome the "chronic symptoms" of their autoimmune condition. Through her proven method of diagnosis and treatment, Anne has helped countless patients achieve greater health, including many who've suffered from years of undetected or misdiagnosed autoimmune-related disease.
