After suffering from health issues for more than a decade, Shanna Nemrow was finally diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis from an ultrasound.
In a story familiar to so many of us, Shanna was told by her Endocrinologist that there was no cure, there was nothing she could do to alleviate her symptoms and that she would eventually need to take Thyroxine for the rest of her life when the damage to her thyroid became bad enough.
When Shanna walked out of that appointment, she was determined to do what ever it took to get her health and life back.
However as we also know, there is no easy path, especially when you are left to find your way alone. The impact of her declining energy and increasing symptoms had a significant affect on her marriage to her childhood sweetheart and caused so much guilt and pain that her young children had to witness her decent into her own personal rock bottom.
Shanna shares openly and with heart about that struggle, what she did to help herself heal and how the impact of her illness transformed her life into what it is now.
More importantly, she shares how wonderful it was that her children got to see her rise back to better health and a brand new life.

Shanna is finishing up her 9th year of homeschooling them with lots of adventures along the way.
Shanna and her family recently moved from Southern California up to Park City, Utah and she is already loving living in the mountains, the slower pace of life, the lack of SoCal traffic, and watching deer in their backyard!
She loves to snowboard, hike, walk, and spend as much time as possible outdoors and also loves to read just about anything, and geek out over all things health and wellness.
Shanna previously worked in accounting for 20 years and loved it. However, she decided to step away from accounting in February and is currently studying to be a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) through the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA). She is due to graduate in November.
She has a passion for sharing her wellness story, and offering love and encouragement to others. Shanna truly believes if she can come this far in her healing journey, anyone can and she loves to cheer others on.
