I’m so happy that you are here. My name is Danielle Shea Tan, CNS, MS, CHHC. I’m a Board Certified Functional Nutritionist and Holistic Health Coach. More importantly, I’m a mother of two incredible young boys and I completely understand that it takes a village to achieve and maintain a healthy life and family. Throughout my life, I’ve personally struggled with numerous health and family challenges but I’ve also experienced amazing transformations by partnering with other practitioners and being open to changes to diet, nutrients, fitness, parenting style and lifestyle. I’d be honored to become part of your village!
Growing up, I was an extremely picky eater and lived on lean cuisine, frosted mini wheats and pizza. My parents worked their tails off while still providing a deeply loving home. Eventually, my dietary habits caught up with me when I was diagnosed with pre-diabetes at age 9! Though I had to learn how to balance my blood sugar, I never learned about REAL food or how to use food, herbs and vitamins to heal my body and feel my best. I struggled from childhood until my late twenties with weight issues, allergies, asthma, mood fluctuations and blood sugar imbalance.
In 2006, my health took a turn for the worse when I contracted Lyme disease from a tick bite that I never noticed. To heal from second stage Lyme disease, I stumbled into the world of alternative and complementary medicine and began a transformative healing journey that included acupuncture, herbalism, nutrition, chiropractic, yoga, meditation and more. It was through this painful, challenging experience that I learned it was my calling to help others transform their health using real food, nutrients and simple shifts in lifestyle! I enrolled in the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2011 to become a holistic health coach.
In 2012, my heart exploded when my husband and I welcomed our first son into the world. Building a new business I was tough, but becoming a mother was like nothing I could have imagined! Plus, a challenging birth took a terrible toll on my health. But, I was not going to let being diagnosed with celiac disease, histamine intolerance, adrenal burnout and autoimmune issues stop me from helping the world. Fortunately, I LOVE learning! So, studying to get a Masters in Functional Nutrition (completed in 2017) while devouring everything I could learn about parenting became my new world.
In 2017, my husband and I were finally blessed with the birth of our second son. When my little one was only 3 weeks old, I found out I got a book deal and had to complete my manuscript within 6 months. My co-author Brett Blumenthal and I set out on a journey to create a book that parents around the world can use to guide them in raising a happy, healthy family. Our book, 52 Small Changes for the Family, was published in March 2019.
