Shawn’s wellness journey began with a devastating illness at the age of 20 – diagnosed with an “incurable” spinal condition known as degenerative disc disease while in college. Seemingly overnight he was in excruciating pain and lost a great deal of function in his leg. His spine was deteriorating at an alarming rate – coined by his doctor of having the spine of an 80-year-old person. He was living with excruciating pain.
In the years that followed, expert after expert shared a grim prognosis. There was no cure, only advice on “managing” the disease – taking it easy, wearing a back brace and taking a variety of prescribed medications.
That’s when Shawn stopped accepting his perceived outcome and took a proactive approach on improving his health & well-being. He devoured content related to health and the human body, changed his diet (even though his doctor insisted that it wouldn’t have any impact) and adopted a specific exercise regimen. Gradually, his body began to transform and the pain disappeared. Months after, scans of his spine revealed that Shawn not only regenerated a significant amount of spinal tissue, but that two herniated discs had retracted on their own.
University peers noticed Shawn’s physical transformation and continuously asked him questions, seeking answers to their own chronic ailments… inevitably breathing life into Shawn’s personal mission of helping others achieve the health and well-being that they rightfully deserve.
