Hello, my name is Shannon Garrett. I am a Certified Functional Nurse-Nutritionist and Autoimmune Thyroid Wellness Nurse Specialist for women.
I'm thrilled you are here because the truth is, we are a lot alike, you and me. We're both on a path to living life to the fullest. The only difference between you and I may be that I am in remission - but remission does not mean that I no longer have to take extremely good care of myself. I still experience occasional setbacks in my health.
It took 8 years and 9 doctors to even get a diagnosis. Trust me, that was 8 years of fear and worry. I can honestly say that I've been where you are and know what you're going through.
You may be feeling overwhelmed. I totally get it! The majority of online thyroid resources, books, and even social media groups may be helpful, but they may also be harmful. You need to know that much of the information you find online or in books (even by the top thyroid experts) are broad and overarching protocols and theories. The TRUTH is that not every protocol, intervention, or testing recommendation applies to every woman's case of Hashimoto's hypothyroidism.
I am here to show you the way out. I work with women just like you who have been seen by several doctors, read every thyroid book there is and are still wondering what it is exactly they should be doing, or they're questioning whether or not they're on the right path and they don't have an advocate to guide them in the right direction.
In my practice, I apply laser focus (literally) to your case and spend countless hours diving deeper into underlying circumstances. I have a 98% success rate in helping my clients achieve a much better quality of life, usually in six to eight weeks.
I help women with Hashimoto's, hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, gut issues and more who are stressed out, overwhelmed, frustrated that no one is listening to or helping them get better.
Health-wise, you are the woman I once was...tired of being sick and tired. Tired of making appointments with doctors time after time. That feeling of hope as you're traveling to your appointment only to be disappointed at some point if not immediately is maddening.
It drives me crazy that this is still happening to women, and is why I'm passionate to help you end this madness. Life is too short for this!
What many women have told me is that I was their last ditch effort to get better because they've literally done it all and they're almost ready to give up because they're exhausted physically, mentally, emotionally, and sometimes even spiritually, and they've already spent a fortune. They've come to the conclusion that the healing stories they've heard about online, in books, and on social media for some reason isn't for them. They're actually annoyed with all the self-help thyroid books available because they often trigger frustration and hopelessness.
Well, together, we can change all that. I literally apply a laser focus to your case and spend hours diving deeper to uncover root cause issues, oversights on labs and more. My intake forms are quite comprehensive and I look at the whole YOU.
But first, I listen to you. I learned a long time ago that in order for a woman to "take in" information, she must get stuff out. It's the nature of our design.
I absolutely love what I do and what a gift it is to see a woman actually start to feel better again, the way she did before Hashimoto's took over her life.
Ask yourself, are you confused by the vast amount of information that is available today for healing Hashimoto's, balancing your hormones and living a healthy life? For goodness sake, are you confused over what to eat? Many women are and they're practically starving themselves for fear that a legume, nightshade, or nut is going to send their health into a severe tailspin path to decline. Have you made progress since you were diagnosed? Do you feel as though something is still not right?
It's not you and none of this should be happening!
My diverse background is what separates me from the rest and is the solid foundation in everything that I do. I've always had a passion for health & wellness and in my early entrepreneurial years I started a successful orthopedic patient care facility to because I wanted to help people who had gone through traumatic amputation, mastectomy, and children who had been affected by conditions such as cerebral palsy. I eventually sold that business and decided to put myself through college.
When my life was turned upside down by Hashimoto's, Celiac disease, Pernicious Anemia and Interstitial Cystitis, my passion turned to a deep desire to help other women going through similar circumstances.
I have the skill, education, real life experience, and drive to help you navigate Hashimoto's to relieving your symptoms and ultimately finding remission. I am also happy to partner with your wellness team if you so desire.
Are you ready?
