Lee Shelley | Nutritional Therapist
Lee Shelley, is our resident Nutritional Therapist. Her professional career has been very diverse. Growing up in South Carolina, she became a Dental Hygienist. Shortly afterward she met her husband and moved to Seattle. She practiced for several years as a Dental Hygienist in different cities in South Carolina and Washington State. Many years later she became a Licensed Midwife and founded Puget Sound Birth Center in Kirkland, WA. It remains a thriving birth center even today having served thousands of families since 1996.
Some years after the birth of her daughter, Gracie, she became interested in Nutrition and Functional Medicine. She had the personal goal of getting off all pharmaceutical medications. That led to many years of study in these fields, and with the help of a very talented Naturopathic Doctor she was able to gradually stop all medications.
Lee then pursued the study of Functional Blood Chemistry, Functional Endocrinology, Thyroid disorders and Neurotransmitter imbalances. She rounded that out by getting certified as a Nutritional Therapist.
Her role in our office is to investigate the patient’s metabolic function/dysfunction to assess its contribution to their health concerns. We know that pain in the body usually has many contributors — not usually a single cause such as spinal misalignment or disc protrusion. Metabolic imbalances can have profound effects on pain, fatigue, weight and mental function. These are the metabolic considerations of care at our office.
Lee uses numerous laboratory tests, metabolic questionnaires and diet history to assess a patient’s metabolic function. She is then able to guide the patient through nutritional and lifestyle changes as well as utilizing nutritional supplements to make profound health changes. Lee has the rare blend of personal experience, extensive knowledge and genuine concern for her patients.
