The Path to Empowered Health

The Ultimate Self-Care Program

Are you ready to put your self-care first?

More and more research is showing the incredible power of preventative medicine. The big secret is all quite basic - eating well, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, managing stress,…  What the research shows is that these basics can actually prevent up to 80% of serious chronic disease - heart disease, diabetes and even cancer. It’s not 100%, and sometimes these conditions do seem to come out of nowhere, but 80% is certainly worth the effort. What I find in practice, is that these foundations are also the cure for many of the health complaints that bring people in to see me - IBS, PMS, fatigue, anxiety, body pains, period issues, perimenopause, and more. 

But what I’ve noticed is that many of us aren’t really doing the basics well. Life is so busy that our basic self-care habits are falling apart. We’re not eating like we know we should, exercise is the first thing to go when life is stressful, and there’s more and more caffeine to get through the busy days instead of enough hours of sleep. 

If your health is suffering - with digestive issues, fatigue, hormone imbalance, burnout, immune issues, pain, and more because you're forgetting about your own self-care, I invite you to join me to really learn how to integrate this into your busy and demanding life.

I’m passionate about helping women to achieve better health, and even more importantly teaching you how to take care of your own health for the long-term. 

In 12 weeks, learn real and practical tools to make your health and self-care a priority - with PLENTY of support along the way. 


"The path to empowered health program came at a time when I was feeling a little out of control. My health was OK, but I wasn't contributing to it or feeling my best. This program helped me to focus and take charge. I learned so much about what is good for my body and mind and the tools were easy and practical to use. I feel that I've made sustainable change in how I eat and manage stress especially. I feel stronger and balanced and like I can get back on track whenever I need to because of the tools and resources from this program."

"I have had an insatiable craving for sugar for as long as I can remember.  I’d need to eat desert after each meal and chocolate at least once a day.  Rather than continuing to fight an unending and exhausting battle with sugar, in the program I learned the underlying reasons for my cravings and how they can be addressed.  I no longer need to fight the cravings, instead, I can gently focus on their cause.  It is now so much easier to eat well and I really feel good about myself."

"The program was a good way to view your health- and manage it proactively- from a 360 degree view. The worksheets and resources provided valuable information that I can continually revisit even after the 12 weeks had ended."

"I very much enjoyed Dr. Shawna’s program. It helped me a lot with self care, I got into meditation properly for first time,started practicing gratitude and it helped me stop being so hard on myself. I printed all the material and it will serve as a reminder going forward. Thank you Dr. Shawna."

"Five months postpartum my baby weight wasn’t going anywhere. I was frustrated and discouraged – nothing fit. After months of maternity wear, I wanted desperately to wear my regular clothes and feel like myself again. The [Empowered Health] program helped me to focus, set reasonable goals and implement small changes that have had a huge pay off. After just 12 weeks, I can slip into my favorite pair of jeans and am confident that the last 3-4 pounds will be gone in a few weeks."

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. My life is really busy right now, can I go at my own pace?  Yes, certainly. You will be sent each lesson on a once per week  schedule for 12 weeks, but the pace is completely up to you. Each lesson is a small bite of information so you can easily implement changes. 

  2. Do you provide vitamin and supplement recommendations in this program?  That depends. If you are participating in the program that includes in-office visits, there may be vitamin and supplement recommendations. In the fully online program, there are no supplement recommendations.My belief is that at least 80% of health is in the foundations: nutrition, movement, stress, downtime, mindset.
