Dr. Sam Shay’s Bio:

Sam’s health journey began at age 6, stemming from his parents extremely stressful divorce which cascading into multiple converging health issues. His primary health condition could be most easily categorized as severe adrenal fatigue, including severe insomnia, digestion problems, severe fatigue, inability to cope with stress, sugar cravings, salt cravings, low moods, and requiring coffee each morning (even at age 6). Sam coped with the stress by developing a strong addiction to video games and an addiction to sugar.

Additionally, Sam was supposed to be the 3rd generation medical doctor in his family, with his grandfather and both his parents being medical doctors. Additionally, his father and grandfather are famous and notable authors in the medical field. Despite the strong momentum to be the 3rd generation medical doctor, took a different road and focused on natural medicine with the same meticulous, scientific approach he learned from his family.

For the past 20 years, Dr. Shay has devoted his life to health and science, learning how to heal himself and others through natural medicine. He now applies those same principles to his patients in the clinic and to his coaching clients online. Sam educated himself in natural medicine through multiple means, including three bachelor degrees, a doctorate in chiropractic, a post-doctoral diplomate from the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, a fellowship in the American College of Functional Neurology, a post-graduate diploma in traditional Chinese acupuncture, certification as a Fitgenes Practitioner in functional genetics, and has studied the principles and applications of naturopathy for 20 years.

Degrees aside, Dr. Shay also spent thousands of hours in post-doctoral training, cross-training amongst a broad spectrum of topics, including neurology, Chinese medicine, physiology, nutrition, rehabilitation, injury correction, myofascial technique, high intensity exercise, and functional medicine. Most importantly, Dr. Sam Shay vetted his techniques and health principles through clinical experience treating real patients either face-to-face or via Skype with his worldwide patients. Dr. Shay’s biggest passion is to teach these health principles to a wider audience.

After a long journey of study, research, and clinical experience, Dr. Shay found out he had severe adrenal fatigue triggered by a multitude of factors, specifically 10 factors or “Pillars of Health” that were crumbling. In fact, he noticed that 100% of his chronically ill patients had at least 7 out of 10 of these Pillars of Health crumbling, which is why they had not gotten the results they wanted when trying out different individual therapies or protocols.
