Nourishment Expert Shelby Streit on Achieving Generational Health

Living healthy, exercising, and eating well is crucial for all humans, but unfortunately, these are often the most neglected areas of our lives. As a result, we see a rising number of chronic ailments among senior citizens, adults, and even children. Health or healthy living has preconceived notions about a limited diet and physical activity. On the flip side, these restricted diets or fad food habits are not sustainable in the long run and often lead to a failed health regime. Nourishment expert and body and mind specialist Shelby Streit have been there too. Now she is on a mission to educate and inspire people on true health and nutrition. 

Born and raised in a financially unstable and abusive family in Michigan, Shelby had a rough childhood. This naturally affected her mental health as a child but also prepared her for difficult challenges in life. Shelby started her career with a real estate company at 19 while she was in college. While living by herself at that time, Shelby started working her way up in the real estate industry, buying, flipping, selling properties, and renting houses to generate a stable source of income. 

What Shelby thought was an ideal life with a successful career and a loving family turned upside down with her husband’s health scares. Shelby tried her best to transform her family’s health through nutrition, and thus began her journey into nourishment education. Her bubble of a healthy lifestyle burst when Shelby tried conceiving a child, only to realize that her so-called healthy lifestyle was drenched in toxins and misinformation. 

Shelby met a health coach at this time who changed her whole perception of healthy living and has been a great resource in her journey as a health and body expert. Shelby realized that it is not just about her getting pregnant but more about following a truly healthy lifestyle and instilling that into future generations. Just like people inherit generational wealth, it is also about inheriting a healthy generational lifestyle. It involves all crucial aspects of life, including nutrition, a healthy environment, the right medication, and overall lifestyle. This health cycle can prevent chronic diseases and gift a whole generation of healthy children and adults. 

As a nutrition expert and body specialist, Shelby had to unlearn all those misconceptions about healthy living she learned from the internet and other people. To discover a truly healthy lifestyle, Shelby had to delve deeper into every meal’s nutritional value, which gradually transformed her family’s health. Now, Shelby wants to help others realize that health is not just about hitting the gym or living on health supplements and packaged water. It is about adopting a whole lifestyle that is practical in today’s world and can be sustained in the long run. 

Shelby Streit is currently taking an excelled program in health and medicine. By the end of 2022, she will be a certified functional medicine practitioner and sit on the board of functional medicine. Besides having an insight into nutrition, Shelby is also a trustworthy guide when it comes to mental and physical health. She wants to break myths related to fad diets and for the world to know that health can be transformed at any phase in life. Just like someone born into poverty can climb the financial ladder through hard work, someone suffering from poor health can choose to live a healthy life.
