Hi, I’m Shannon and, like you, my world was turned upside-down when my two kiddos were diagnosed with chronic health conditions. At the age of 3, my oldest child was diagnosed with autism and sensory processing disorder and suffered from a speech delay, behavioral issues, food allergies, chronic ear infections, eczema, and symptoms of ADHD. My youngest child was diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, at the age of 2, and displayed traits of anxiety and oppositional defiant disorder. Our life was consumed with kids who were suffering so much that tantrums, mood swings, and an inability to connect were a way of life for our family. I was overwhelmed and constantly in search of answers on how to help my kids feel better. Diving headfirst into researching nutrition and holistic health for childhood conditions, I began to have hope.
I have witnessed firsthand the power that food and a holistic approach to healing have in bringing the body back to health. Implementing various therapeutic diets and other integrative health protocols have not only helped my 2 kiddos to get well, but also helped me to overcome my own health issues of anxiety, depression, and irritable bowel syndrome. Today, my two kids (now 13 and 11) are thriving and healthy. I no longer suffer from mood disorders or digestive issues. Our family is happy and living our best lives in the beautiful mountains of Colorado. We enjoy hiking, camping, skiing, or just hanging out at home playing games and reading together. The deep healing that nutrition and integrative health brings has made all of this possible!
Ever since helping my kids overcome health challenges and experiencing my own healing, I have had a passion to help other families do the same. I left my career as an elementary school teacher to get my master’s degree in nutrition and integrative health from Maryland University of Integrative Health. Today, I combine the knowledge I gained in graduate school with tools from my family’s healing journey to help kids and families get healthier and find hope through practical food and lifestyle changes.
