Dr. Hirschenbein is a traditionally trained physician, Board Certified in Internal Medicine and in Gastroenterology. In addition, he has a PhD in Clinical Psychology. 20 years ago Dr. H became frustrated with the limitation of traditional medicine, and became Certified in Holistic and Integrative Medicine, Certified in Anti-Aging Medicine, and achieved several nutritional certifications (CCN Certified Clinical Nutritionist, and CNS Certified Nutritional Specialist). In addition, he went through The Institute of Functional Medicine’s training program (AFMCP -Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice). For the last 20 years he has applied these principles and helped many patients. However, there were some that did not respond. He looked into what he was missing and realized he was missing Neurotoxin Diseases’ Mold (CIRS) and Lyme. During the last 8 years he has attempted to learn as much as possible about these diseases, culminating in becoming Certified by
Dr. Shoemaker. He is honored and humbled to become a member of such a prestigious group. Dr. Hirschenbein practices in San Diego at The La Jolla Institute of Comprehensive Medicine and can be reached at 858-546-8055.
