MY PERSONAL HEALTH JOURNEY
Exercise has always been a part of my life. As a kid, I played every sport imaginable. I would go running and lift weights almost every day. Regardless of all the physical activity, I started gaining weight in high school and by the time I graduated undergrad, I was 40 pounds overweight. No matter what I did, I couldn’t seem to get my weight under control. I ended up depressed, hopeless, and ridiculously unhappy with my body. However, my choice of profession and my positive and outgoing personality had everyone thinking that I was completely happy with the body I was living in.
I received my undergraduate degree in Public Health and Exercise Science from George Washington University in Washington, DC. After graduating, I became a certified personal trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM). I had a gift for helping other people lose weight and reach their fitness goals, but for some reason, I continued struggling with my own body.
I loved working as a personal trainer, but I decided to go to chiropractic school so I could help people with their health in ways I wasn’t able to as a trainer. I thought maybe I’d be able to help myself achieve better health too. So, I moved to Florida to attend Palmer College of Chiropractic. I started my chiropractic education with a medical mindset, which I adopted from George Washington University. Little did I know, my medical mindset would be radically transformed.
After being mentored and trained by some of the best chiropractors and natural healthcare practitioners on the planet, I soon came to realize that the human body has a miraculous ability to heal and transform into a stronger, healthier, more vibrant being without the use of drugs or surgeries. I also realized that the “one-size-fits-all” approach of our current healthcare system is not working and is producing an unhealthy, overweight, and hopeless population.
After graduating with a doctorate in chiropractic in 2013, I opened a natural healthcare clinic in Port Orange, Florida. Natural Health Practices soon exploded into a successful holistic haven for people seeking a more natural approach to healing. While seeing patients and managing my business, I went on for post-graduate training in nutrition. I soon became one of only 1,000 health practitioners to graduate the very extensive Advanced Clinical Training program in Nutrition Response Testing®. Through this advanced training, I studied cutting-edge breakthroughs in all aspects of clinical nutrition.
Turns out, many of my patients had actually eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health and disease by the time they ended up in my office for care. Thankfully, I am now properly equipped to help almost anyone who walked through my door. I’m able to help my patients heal through the use of chiropractic adjustments, specific dietary recommendations, whole food nutritional supplementation, homeopathic remedies, low-level laser therapy, and detoxification. What could be more rewarding to a healthcare provider than to provide people with answers to their ailments, the necessary tools to take control of their own health, and liberty from the pharmaceutical and surgical dependent mindset so prevalent in today’s society?
I have helped thousands of people heal naturally and obtain bodies they are happy living in. But as of 2017, I was still not happy with the body I had. Even with all the knowledge in the world to help myself, I wasn’t able to achieve my own health goals. I had lost some weight since undergrad and was the healthiest I’ve ever been, but there was still something missing.
In November of 2017, I decided to make the most drastic decision I’ve ever made with my own health and fitness. I didn’t go back to school for another degree this time. Instead, I made the decision to hire a coach and start training for a natural bodybuilding competition. I realized that I couldn’t reach my goals on my own and I wasn’t going to reach them by tacking on more initials after my name. I needed to ask for help and I needed the same type of accountability that I offered my patients.
After 9 months of dedicated training and closely monitored food logging, I competed in my first bodybuilding competition. On July 28, 2018, I stepped on stage for the first time and ended up winning my pro card in the bikini division in a natural bodybuilding show. I competed in my second competition on October 27, 2018 and won my pro card in the bikini model division. My 3rd competition was the NGA Universe on November 10, 2018 – exactly 1 year after making the decision to hire a coach and start training. I ended up placing 2nd in the bikini pro open division at the NGA Universe.
I can honestly say that for the first time in my life, I am happy with the body I’m living in. I thank God that we have the ability to transform our bodies into what we want and that we don’t have to remain stuck and unhappy with our current situation. It’s not easy and it requires a lot of discipline and accountability to transform your body, but it is possible!
I hope my transformation is a living testimony to what the human body is capable of.
I believe that I had to battle for years with my weight and overall health so that I could fully help others who have been stuck in a similar way. My biggest piece of advice is to find help. I would not have been able to make this transformation without others holding me accountable for the changes I had to make. The knowledge I had was not enough for me to succeed on my own.
If you have health problems that won’t go away, or you’ve been struggling to have a body you’re happy with, or you’re feeling hopeless with your current situation, please reach out to me and let me help you on your journey to improved health.This
DR. SHELLY IS A MASTER CLINICIAN IN NUTRITION RESPONSE TESTING
Dr. Seidenberg is one of less than 1,000 health practitioners who have graduated the very extensive Advanced Clinical Training program in Nutrition Response Testing® conducted in Clearwater, Florida.
Nutrition Response Testing® is used by thousands of healthcare practitioners of all types and specialties across the United States, including osteopaths, medical doctors, chiropractors, and nutritionists. The certification for Nutrition Response Testing requires 16 educational modules, including 400 hours of classroom time and clinical training. Through this advanced training, Dr. Seidenberg studied cutting-edge breakthroughs in all aspects of clinical nutrition ranging from the in-depth analysis of specific nutritional deficiencies to successful continued patient care.
Nutrition Response Testing was developed by Dr. Freddie Ulan, Certified Clinical Nutritionist, after 25,000 hours of clinical experience in his highly successful practice in upstate New York. Nutrition Response Testing is a non-invasive method of analyzing the body to determine the root causes of health conditions. It enables the practitioner to determine the exact nutritional deficiency or imbalance so it can be corrected. And that pinpointed deficiency is usually at the root cause of the problem. Nutrition Response Testing is quick, non-invasive, inexpensive, and painless.
As a Nutrition Response Testing physician, Dr. Seidenberg makes specific dietary recommendations for her patients. She also uses whole food nutritional supplements, herbal supplements, and homeopathic remedies. Many of Dr. Seidenberg’s patients have eaten themselves into their current state of ill-health and disease. The resulting nutritional deficiencies and imbalances lead to a breakdown in proper immunity and a loss of the ability to cope with environmental stresses (chemical, bacterial, or otherwise). The good news is that it is possible to reverse the process. And Dr. Seidenberg’s patients are very appreciative of the fact that she has an effective system of monitoring their progress at each visit. By contrast, the traditional medical doctor makes a diagnosis and then uses drugs or surgery to attack or suppress the symptoms or to surgically remove the “offending” organ or part.
