Meet Shauna Gourley
Certified Holistic Nutrition Consultant
Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner
Bulletproof Human Potential Coach
Shauna’s passion for wellness was born from experience. In her mid-40’s, after recovering from having “the hormone profile of a 90-yr-old woman,” Shauna was inspired to help others do the same. The first step in becoming a healthpreneur was to obtain an honours certificate in Holistic Nutrition. This science-based, foundational training ignited a passion for a deeper understanding of the body and its functions. For Shauna, completing her training in Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) provided the expertise she was seeking. Through assessment and medically-directed diagnostic testing, FDN offers a unique approach to health that empowers clients by identifying possible root causes of symptoms, and educating them in ways to return the body to balance or homeostasis.
Shauna’s recent and ongoing training in Methylation & Clinical Nutrigenomics takes this functional approach to health a giant step further. Nutrigenomics is the study of how different foods may interact with specific genes, potentially increasing the risk of common diseases. Simply put, methylation is a very important chemical process that our bodies use to make sure our genes work properly. When methylation is impaired, most often by a genetic variant in our MTHFR pathway, things like depression, anxiety, infertility, birth defects, cancer and cardiovascular disease can occur; to name just a few. It is estimated that as much as 40 percent of the population may be affected by this genetic variant.
The combination of FDN® and Methylation & Clinical Nutrigenomics training has allowed Shauna to become proficient in helping her clients achieve balance in various body systems, including hormonal, detoxification, immune and digestive pathways.
As an adjunct to her functional nutrition practice, Shauna was certified as one of the first ever Bulletproof Human Potential Coaches!
