We caught up with the owner, Ciara Starr Shea, and asked her some questions about what makes her business so successful.
What inspired you to start this business?
When I was in my mid-20’s my mother was diagnosed with stage-4 lung cancer and it completely changed the course of my life. Prior to her illness, I just graduated from law school and moved back from California to study for the bar exam. Immediately after we received the news that she was terminal, I put my law career aside to take care of her.
I quickly became obsessed with researching causes of cancer and started to connect how our lifestyles have a direct impact on our health. Understanding there is a direct correlation between the foods you eat and how you feel — that right there is life-changing. I found power in having knowledge that food itself is medicine.
Taking this path as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner became my opportunity to educate and empower others to recognize that a nutrient-dense diet of whole foods provides the ultimate foundation upon which to build optimal health.
How long have you been in this business?
What keeps you going every day?
Knowing that I have the tools and knowledge to piece together root causes and symptoms for clients who have felt horrible for years. When I can help clients get pregnant and deliver healthy, vibrant babies. When I help entire families change their eating habits to live healthier and happier lives. But mostly when I hear, “Ciara, I have never felt this good in my entire life!”
What is your favorite part about your business?
The opportunity to give people the tools to live their best life. To teach and empower my clients that the foods they eat, and the lifestyles they embody, have a direct impact on their health.
List the services you provide
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, I provide a holistic, individualized approach to health. The majority of clients choose to go with my Nutritional Therapy Consultation & Follow-up package where I provide a comprehensive health assessment, individualized protocol, and continued guidance until you meet your health goals.
I am unique in my offering of two powerful programs for fertility and pregnancy: Feed Your Fertile Body™ and Feed Your Pregnant Body™.
Additionally, I offer a la carte wellness services such as a Nutritional Assessment Questionnaire, Pantry Sweep, and Grocery Shopping Tour for you or up to four friends. All of these services can be customized to fit your needs.
Out of all of the services you provide, what would you say is your specialty?
Although my practice spans the gamut of health concerns, my passion and focus lie within fertility and pregnancy. I offer two incredible fertility and pregnancy-related programs: Feed Your Fertile Body™ and Feed Your Pregnant Body™. Both of these programs support, guide, and coach women and men towards optimizing fertility and preparing for pregnancy by nourishing their bodies with whole foods.
What is one thing you would like us to know about your business?
I am fully invested in your health and I am deeply committed to your well-being.
Thank you Ciara for sharing with us and giving us insight into your business!
