My name is Calee Shea and I'm a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner, Energy Healer, podcast host, Atlanta local, Period Expert, Sexual Health Educator, and so much more.
My journey with health and wellness began as a child, with a suppressed immune system, eczema, and food allergies.
All of that felt manageable (and in all honesty, I didn’t take it seriously) until 2015, after about 4 months on hormonal birth control that sent my body into a tailspin.
My skin was so covered in acne, rosacea, and a rash, that I could barely touch it without it literally breaking open. I have always been sensitive to foods and chemicals, but this was on a whole different level that I had ever experienced.
I had to totally revamp my diet, ditch all of the chemicals I was using on my body and in my home, and then allow myself time to heal.
But that was just the beginning of my healing journey.
Over the next 3 years I had to learn how to manage my stress and figure out how to live in a way that was supportive for my body.
I had lyme disease, painful periods, rashes, breakouts, inflammation, candida overgrowth, and leaky gut. I found out that I am part of the large group of menstruators that have a liver gene mutation that makes detoxing difficult and I was diagnosed Celiac.
And let’s not forget the emotional and mental struggles that also go along with health issues. Needless to say, I tried every healing modality that I could get my hands on. For a span of time, I felt like a mad scientist and my body felt like my greatest experiment.
Mind you, it took me quite a long time and a lot of mindfulness work to find the gratitude in this process, but I’m so incredibly grateful for my journey.
My experiences with acne, hormone imbalances, low confidence, and poor gut health led me to my passion for menstruator's hormones and sexual health. Because it feels really fucking sexy to be empowered with the knowledge about your own body.
My philosophy is that taking care of your body isn’t just about food and exercise, it is also about how and with whom you are living your life.
It is about experiencing joy and the support you are getting along the way. It is about your confidence, your connection with your feminine, the way you speak to your body, and the belief and deep knowing that you deserve to feel good in your body.
I was inspired to delve into holistic health and specialize in periods so that I could help other menstruators overcome the same challenges I was faced with.
