About Your Practioner
Dr. Shavon Jackson-Michel, ND
Why Hormone Health & Natural Fertility?
I am my parent's first child - the result of 5 years of trying, "failing" and trying some more. Back nearly 40 years ago, my mother persevered through some difficult diagnoses and procedures, to have a best chance at conception. There was less known about some of the conditions that contributed to her fertility challenges, and much less proven to assist her in a more natural way. So much of her process was unchartered.
In ND medical school, I developed a particular liking to hormone health: hormones of metabolism, like thyroid and blood sugar hormones, stress hormones, hormones of reproduction. I loved them all, and as I've helped many people with hormone conditions over the years, there's always been something special about helping women, like my mom, conceive.
I always knew that my own personal journey 'here' was not easy and in the thick of it, my mother (and father) suffered a lot - similar to the patients I was seeing - but it was the experience of my own miscarriage that brought everything into context for me. The light that I had previously been to others in their hard times, became the strength that got me through my own pain and loss. It catapulted me in a new and fresh way to continue promoting hormone health of all kinds, but with natural fertility as a focus!
