Shanon Whittingham, MS

Nutritionist & Holistic Health Coach

My name is Shanon Whittingham and I am a Holistic Nutritionist, Health Coach, and the founder of Sincerely Shans. Sincerely Shans is a private practice committed to helping you thrive from within.

 

Since 2017 I have been committed to taking a holistic approach to health and well-being. The American Holistic Health Association (AHHA) states "rather than focusing on illness or specific parts of the body, a holistic approach considers the whole person and how he or she interacts with his or her environment. It emphasizes the connection of mind, body, and spirit."

 

I believe that optimal health is more than what we eat. Equally important is what we think. I often leverage my personal experience of overcoming depression and poor eating habits to help others see that health is a positive vitality, and not just the absence of disease. We must consider how our mental heath impacts our choices, self-efficacy, and eating decisions. Through my Master's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics, and vigorous experience of conducting medical nutrition therapy alongside physicians, I created this platform to help you foster a holistic approach to health. Look around my website to find mostly plant-based recipes, tips on weight management, and research on how you can implement natural and non-toxic remedies for improved health.

Thrive From Within

VISION

Global health, healing, and well-being.

MISSION

To inspire and teach all how to thrive from within through holistic health and nutrition.

MY METHOD

The Fingerprint Method
Whether you have diabetes, high blood pressure, or want to transition to a plant-based diet, it is my duty to understand the complexity of your unique needs. I believe that each individual is unique as fingerprints. I use my Fingerprint Method to focus on your entire well-being and to understand the root cause of any health irregularities. 

The Fingerprint method stands on the following philosophy:

FOOD AS MEDICINE - Food can fuel or fight disease. Food contains vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that can balance hormones or disrupt health. Science has proven that healthy input equals healthy output. With the right foods and dietary supplements, I teach you the value of food as medicine so that you can reduce the need for medications. 

 

MIND OVER MATTER - Optimal health is more than what you eat, equally important is what you think. Not only do I seek to prevent, treat, and reverse disease in your body, but I work with you to reduce dis-ease in your mind. I emphasize the importance of stress management, mindfulness, anxiety reduction, and deep sleep as tools for lasting success.

 

FEED YOUR SOUL - As you begin to take a holistic approach to health, you may soon realize it is vitally important to develop spiritually healthy habits. A few of these habits may include choosing friends who uphold similar values and beliefs — which may make it easier for you to make positive choices. Another would be regularly evaluating your identity — to see if it connects to your purpose. We can work together to integrate ways to enhance your spiritual well-being, as it vitally connects to your health, happiness, and social relationships.
