About Dr. Samuel Yanuck

Cogence Immunology is the creation of Samuel Yanuck, DC, FACFN, FIAMA, the company’s CEO and Director of Education. Dr. Yanuck began studying immunology in 2001, after he observed that focusing on specific patterns in immune function could profoundly influence the outcomes of challenging cases. The more he learned, the better the outcomes became. Cogence® Immunology reflects Dr. Yanuck’s nearly two decades of immunology study and clinical experience.

Dr. Yanuck is an adjunct assistant professor in the Program on Integrative Medicine, in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. There he teaches the course “The Immunology of Autoimmune Disease, Inflammation and Chronic Infection: A Research-Based Functional Medicine Perspective.” He has also published papers in the medical literature.

With his wife, Cheryl Yanuck, MD, a psychiatrist, Dr. Yanuck runs the Yanuck Center for Life and Health, a functional medicine clinic in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where he sees patients from all over the country. His practice is primarily focused on the care of patients with autoimmune disease, chronic infection, persistent inflammatory process, chronic GI disorders, or other immunologically-involved challenges. Dr. Yanuck provides online consultations for other clinicians. If you would like to arrange a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Yanuck, click here. 


Good teachers make all the difference. I’m grateful to have had several over the years, and I attribute much of my knowledge to their good guidance. This course is dedicated to my teachers, and to you, the clinician reading this bio, wondering if this course is for you. Dive in. You and your patients will never be the same.
