Over the last several years, there has been a lot of buzz around the concept of intermittent fasting (IF) and for good reason. Many people swear by intermittent fasting to decrease body fat, increase energy and focus, assist in detoxification, keep aging at bay, and even protect them against chronic disease. In fact, there is evidence […]

What People Are Saying
Shawn is a very knowledgeable, professional & caring person. She was able to explain to me after our very first meeting what I needed to do to improve my health and well-being for life! She explained everything very clearly & made it understandable. I felt a very warm sense of caring in her mannerisms & am truly grateful for the life long tools I received while working with Shawn! If you are looking to improve your health – look no further, Shawn is your girl!- Kim D.
“Shawn is amazing! Her positive energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge have put me on the road to recovery and a lifetime of health!” – Kelly V.
“I’d been having stomach issues for years, and finally decided to do something about it. Originally, I thought a visit to the GI would fix me, but after finding Shawn (thank you, social media!), I figured I’d try the holistic route first. And wow, am I glad I did. Shawn opened my eyes to what I was doing that wasn’t working, and through education and advice, showed me what DOES work. It wasn’t long before my body thanked tenfold me for treating it the way it deserves to be treated. Had I not typed that first email to Shawn asking for help, I would not be living the healthy lifestyle I am today. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Shawn…for making my belly well!” – Ali D.- Ali D.
I’ve gotten far enough along in my treatment for mold illness and have learned enough in the process to start sharing my story and what I know in an effort to help others get the direction they need. This topic needs to be acknowledged and discussed so much more than it currently is because many […]
Let me just get right to the point of this whole article in the first sentence: the health of your skin is 100% dependent on what’s going on in the rest of your body. If you are someone who deals with acne, rashes, hives, keratosis pilaris, itching, dry patches, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, discolorations, or premature […]
I know what you’re thinking right now… how is ‘Loaded Cauliflower Mac & Cheese’ going to taste remotely like mac n’ cheese BUT still be healthy and made with only real food ingredients? I know. I was skeptical too. I was hesitant to try this recipe because, besides fake, processed nacho cheese, fake, processed macaroni […]
This was an extremely popular and well received topic on a recent episode of my podcast The Nourished Podcast, so I decided a blog post about it would also be very beneficial. You can listen to that episode here. I think we can all agree that there are some foods that, when we eat them, […]
I’ve had this internal debate for the past year about changing my business name from Well Belly Holistic Health – a very digestive focused name – to something a little broader to encompass the full spectrum of the type of clients I see in my practice. But, every time that thought pops in my head, […]
First, I have to let you know that the idea for this post completely interrupted my meditation practice this morning. How ironic! I’ve been talking about meditation a lot lately, attempting to explain the power it has on stress, overthinking, and just overall well-being. Pretty much anyone that gets advice from me, whether it be […]
I will never forget the day Boulder went under water. In fact, my friends and I now have a running joke that we are forever scarred from that day because now every time it rains, we immediately begin preparing for flood conditions and a never-ending downpour. Never in a million years would I have guessed […]
I can’t even tell you how many times I googled this exact phrase over the last year. It was A LOT. Because I was confused. For the first time ever, I was actually thinking about how working out TOO MUCH could be causing health issues, or at least not making them any better. Because I’m […]
Why has carbohydrate consumption gotten so darn confusing?! When I first switched to a full paleo diet 2.5 years ago to put my autoimmune disease into remission, I was under the impression that I needed to increase my healthy fat intake quite a bit and lower my carbohydrates significantly to get the full benefit of […]
