Shelley used to be the stereo-typical higher achieving, super-busy, corporate girl. She worked insane hours, skipped meals, lost sleep, over exercised and by her own admission did not take care of her health.
That all changed in 2010, when Shelley reached total burnout, her health crashed and Shelley lost all physiological function. Doctors wanted to admit her to hospital, telling her she was on ‘death’s doorstep’ and there was little hope to heal her fully.
Shelley was eventually diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and spent many, many months bedridden, nursed day and night by her parents, unable to stay awake for more than 30 minutes a day.
Despite speaking to several specialists, nobody was able to help. So, Shelley embarked on journey to heal herself, studying as a functional nutritionist.
Shelley discovered that her body had been giving her signals for many years up to when her health finally totally collapsed, but she'd been too driven and busy to listen. Shelley was able to heal her own body and as a certified and trained functional nutritionist has now made it her career and passion to help others listen, treat and heal their bodies so they can live well.
