NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. We’ve flagged this talk for falling outside TEDx’s content guidelines. This talk only represents the speaker’s personal understanding of health and epigenetics. Claims made in this talk are not based on sufficient peer-reviewed scientific evidence. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here:

Dr. Ann Shippy how we can powerfully influence our gene expression, and by knowing these practical, basic rules can help you change the trajectory of your health. Dr. Ann Shippy is on a mission to help create extraordinary wellness by using cutting-edge science and the latest genetic research to find and treat root causes –not just the symptoms– of illness. After a decade of working as an IBM engineer, Dr. Shippy was challenged with her own health ailments that traditional medicine couldn’t resolve, so after doing her own research, she resolved to pioneer a new kind of medical practice. She left engineering to attend University of Texas Medical School. She is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and certified in Functional Medicine. She creates custom blueprints and real-world health solutions for those suffering from any combination of physical, environmental, or genetic health concerns. She is the author of two books and has been serving patients for over 15 years in her thriving practice based in Austin, Texas. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

  1. Dr Shippy-I watched it, sadly your solid research is too cutting edge for some. Your science, training and extensive, valid, medical research give new give hope & healing to so many of us! Thank you. Because of the Covid pandemic, I have never been more disgusted with You Tube, Facebook and Twitter and their rampant desire to not only suppress valid medical information but to remove anything not approved by some "official arbiters" of fact when it exposes them. To see this disclaimer from Ted Conferences against you a BOARD CERTIFIED Western trained MD in Internal Medicine is a travesty to not only free speech but a disservice to humanity who need health options where traditional medicine fails. ALL of your work (along with many others in functional medicine) is based on very sufficient peer-reviewed scientific evidence (more peer reviewed than FDA guidelines on certain drugs and the food pyramid I might add)

  2. Ann Shippy is one to watch. She is one of the smartest people I know, and what's even better is that SHE CARES DEEPLY. You can see it in this talk… I've been her patient and known her for years, and she is always many steps ahead of the mainstream. For example– Consumer Reports just did a huge story on microplastics and how we are ingesting so much of it, causing hormone disruption, etc.– and Dr. Shippy has been saying this for a very long time and testing for it in her patients. She is the "real deal."
