Hi, I’m Dr. Shawn Greenan, an Acupuncture Physician on a mission to help people become the healthiest versions of themselves.
I specialize in healing the body from the inside out with a focus on gut health, skin health, and pain management.
A little bit about me:
As a child I had constant reoccurring hives, eczema, and chronic gut issues. As I got older the sicker I became and the laundry list of pharmaceuticals, exploratory surgeries, and “throw away” diagnosis continued to grow. I entered the biomedicine field right out of high school immediately knowing I wanted to help people get healthier. But by the time I was 25 I felt like I was on my death bed. I was 100 pounds couldn’t hold down food, lethargic and anxiety ridden. I had access to some of the best doctors who were also my colleagues and friends, but no one could give me a true diagnoses.
I finally had enough and took my health into my own hands. I researched nutrition and herbs to help heal my body from within. After months of cutting out inflammatory processed foods, supplementing with herbs, proper nutrition and acupuncture, I was finally cured from IBD, cystic acne, anxiety, allergies, and asthma (just to name a few). I was able to get off all my medications and I started putting on weight. I was finally absorbing food and the nutrients my body deeply craved!
I knew right then I had to switch paths from my Biomedical career to dive deeper into Integrative Medicine and this is how I became an Acupuncture Physician. After a few years in private practice I started seeing the same reoccurring problem with my patients. Autoimmune disease, gut issues, skin issues, and chronic inflammation. So back into the book I went to specialize in Functional Medicine. I truly believe we are what we eat and nutrition + gut health both play a huge role in my practice.
The body has an amazing ability to heal itself if given the proper tools. So, if you are sick of being sick, I highly encourage you to look into what you are consuming. Processed, inflammatory foods are going to get you nowhere but sicker.
I’m so glad I found my calling in the Integrative Medicine field. I look forward to helping as many people as I can get off medications and live long happy healthy lives!
