Simply put, The Anderson Approach®️ is our framework for getting you well.
This is not a protocol or one-size-fits-all approach to autoimmune disorders. In fact, it’s the opposite. The Anderson Approach®️ is a strategy that systematically discovers and addresses the complete & unique picture of your chronic health issues.This resolves one of the many challenges Dr. Anderson’s patients have had in the past — they follow traditional “autoimmune protocols” and they still don’t feel well.
To feel well you need
- To DISCOVER and understand how you got to where you are.
- To BUILD a strong foundation of health. And identify and remove roadblocks that are keeping you stuck.
- To find and TREAT any and all root cause issues that are contributing to your current health.
- To know how to OPTIMIZE and maintain your health once you’re feeling well.
By the time patients find Dr. Anderson, they’ve often uncovered a root cause or two and have improved their health to some degree but most intuitively know something’s missing.
They feel like they have an incomplete picture of their health and they are left with a constant nagging feeling that there’s more to their health puzzle.
During the Discover stage, it’s important to thoroughly review your health history. You need the reassurance that something obvious hasn’t been overlooked and the confidence that your doctor understands the unique details of your health story.

TREAT - Root Causes
Ultimately, to get you feeling your best, you need to identify and treat your root cause triggers. Many of the foundational pieces can be done on your own.
But root cause trigger exploration and treatment usually requires the help of a trained functional medical provider who specializes in autoimmune conditions.
You’ll likely need an autoimmune strategist, who knows your complete health story, to help you create the best game plan to address this part of your healing.
Common root causes include: toxins (such as: mold/mycotoxins, heavy metals, environmental) and infections (such as: chronic viral or bacterial, parasites).
OPTIMIZE - Maintain and Thrive
