Hashimoto's Treatment Functional Medicine

Hashimoto’s Treatment with Functional Medicine in the 21st Century

My name is Matt Dippl and I am a Hashimoto’s patient, researcher and qualified healthcare practitioner experienced with Functional medicine.

On this site you will learn about Hashimoto’s treatment from a functional medicine perspective.

I have successfully brought my own Hashimoto´s Thyroiditis into remission through following a 6 Step Hashimoto’s functional medicine treatment protocol.

Reversing Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: Remission is possible

It takes time to reverse autoimmunity and it is possible. I have regained my health, zest for life and happiness again.

I went from being chronically sick, tired and bedridden to full health and vitality again after exploring different treatment approaches in a time span of 3 years.

What has helped me the most to finally get my Hashimoto´s into remission was the new medical paradigm of Functional Medicine.

What is Functional Medicine?

Functional medicine is a disruptive medical technology that aims to revolutionize the way we will practice medicine in the 21st century.

The definition of Functional Medicine (IFM):

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

Hashimoto’s Treatment and Functional Medicine Advocacy in Europe

After having experienced the immense benefit of this great 21st century healing modality it is my mission to give back to the Hashi’s community.

I am channeling my passion and inspiration to educate people suffering from Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis around the globe.

in 2013 I was interviewed by Dr. Deanna Minnich, a top leader in the area of Functional Medicine for the Detox Summit.

I shared my story with her how I applyied functional medicine as a trailblazer, thoughtleader and biohacker in Europe.

My story of recovering my Body and Brain from autoimmune Thyroid disease

Before I got diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2012 I was running my own integrative medicine clinic in Canberra, Australia with a focus on sports medicine and wellness.

During this time I discovered my passion for online and content marketing. I successfully implemented digital marketing strategies to build my first business. Life was good.

After getting married to my dear wife Tiffany in 2010 we both felt on top of the world. But it would not last… I was up for a real lesson what it means to loosing one´s health.

We were not yet aware that I already was quite sick on an internal level. Tiff and I were very happy as you can see!

When I got more and more sick in 2012 my health declined greatly and I was not able to stay focused to successfully build my business further.

My ability to concentrate and remain energetic and awake during the day got less and less. Instead I became moody, irritable and tired.

My brain suffered the most: I got more and more depressed, slow minded and mentally fatigued.

This was due to increased inflammation in my body and brain.

From sick to great with Functional Medicine Diagnostics and Testing

Below a picture of me when I was very sick… I was in bedridden most of the time at this stage and I had lost lot´s of weight.

During this time my wife Tiffany worked over 14 hours a day in a start-up in Amsterdam as a co-founder and CEO. It was a very stressful time.

Celebrating my 34th birthday while being seriously sick with my friends. I had lost a lot of weight due to a parastic and bacterial infection.

A few months later I was flown to San Diego, California, by a close friend who helped me to get access to first class Functional medicine diagnostic testing and treatment.

I got the proper tests done so we could start treating my Hashimoto´s accordingly.

We figured out that I had a serious bacterial infection of Heliobacter Pylori that needed treatment ASAP.

On top it turned out that I had some genetic variations called SNP´s which were impacting the hormonal detoxification capacity of my liver.

The Body and Brain connection in Hashimoto’s Disease

At this time I recognized the close connection between overall body and brain health.

Due to the fact that my body was systemically sick and inflamed it became clearer why my brain suffered so much since getting unwell.

I could not keep up with friends and colleagues that had went all in with their businesses and careers.

Overcoming Brainfog through Personalized Nutrition

Often I had such severe brain fog and tiredness that I feared I’d lose everything: my family, wife and career aspirations.

After I discovered and applied functional medicine in my daily life I gradually turned my health around.

I applied advanced personalized nutritional strategies to reverse my declining overall body and brain health.

During this time I discovered Tim Ferriss´s: The 4 Hour Chef and the Hashimoto’s Diet.

Meeting Tim Ferriss

In 2013 I met Tim Ferriss at The Next Web conference in Amsterdam. Tiff and I came up with a plan to meet him at the after party.

My biggest breakthroughs came from learning to cook for myself anti-inflammatory meals free of gluten, diary, corn, soy and grains.

This nutritional approach was able to lower inflammatory markers in my body, improved my metabolism and recovered my brain function.

At this time I found a lot of great recipes in Tim´s book that were permissible in on the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol. You got to try his steak recipe – the best steak ever!

This is my personally signed copy of the 4 Hour Chef from Tim Ferriss.

I made Tim’s quote my mantra during my recovery from Hashimoto’s.

I set myself daily goals, tracked my blood markers religiously and followed a step by step plan that I created together with functional medicine experts from the US.

It took lot´s of self experimentation and countless visits to supportive doctors.

Functional medicine tactics and the unending positive mental and emotional support from my wife Tiff pulled me through.

Walking my talk as a Functional Medicine Early Adopter in Europe

I understand now that I am at the frontline of the functional medicine revolution in here in Europe.

Functional medicine is currently successfully disrupting the way we are practicing medicine in the 21st century.

These days I am healthy, energetic and strong again. There were times I´d thought I never get better again.

But due to my own effort, research and determination I got well again.

Today I am well again – thanks to functional medicine, my dear wife Tiffany and great support from amazing friends and family.

To my right you can see my dear wife Tiffany, an amazing woman who never gave up in the face of the greatest adversities.

Her loving and encouraging words pulled me through in my darkest moments.

She supported me with kindness, patience and compassion all the way through. I am indebted to her that I emerged victorious in the battle with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

Health Coaching, Personalized Lifestyle Medicine and Biohacking

These days I am helping various individuals with different backgrounds to get their health and lifestyle back on track.

Matt Dippl, B.H.Sc. IFM – Biohacker, Speaker and Coach

I learned how to hack my own biology through a personalized lifestyle medicine approach that is fully based on solid functional medicine principles.

These days I teach the very same biohacking strategies that gave me my brain health back to knowledge workers in the digital economy to protect theirs.

This is why people in the tech and start-up circles are calling me a Biohacker.

I am sharing my best strategies in the Bioahacking 101 Workshops.

I am hosting these  workshops at creative agencies, online marketing companies and other institutions in which it is being understood that success depends on an energetic and awake brain.
