Dr. Leslie's passion is in helping individuals achieve total body wellness and offering hope through better eating, living and thinking. After years of ongoing health issues, she found her self traveling from doctor to doctor looking for answers yet getting only another prescription to add to her list of medications. She was told time and time again that her blood work was "normal" and that they could find no reason for the chronic symptoms such as severe anxiety, headaches, intestinal challenges and chronic fatigue. Feeling hopeless, she begin her search for another path of healing. Once she found the world of natural health and herbs, she was able to find what her body needed and the healing process began. It was then that she decided to go back to school and learn more so that she could offer hope to others. Dr Leslie holds an undergraduate degree in Education which she used in her former 16 year career working with adolescents experiencing learning disabilities, ADHD and depression. Her master's degree is in the area of Professional Counseling and she is a board certified Traditional Naturopath. She earned her PhD in Natural Health Sciences from the University of Natural Medicine where her main focus was intestinal health and the gut-brain connection. Dr. Leslie is a certified Life Strategies Coach, with training in a form of Neuro-Linguistic Programming called Hemispheric Integration. She has additional training in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). She uses her experience in education, nutrition and counseling for a unique approach to educating others in total body wellness. She is excited to be the first in the Middle Tennessee area to offer Blood Chemistry Analysis, a holistic approach to traditional blood work.
Dr. Leslie Shew is a member of The American Nutraceutical Association and is DSHEA Certified (Dietary Supplement Health and Education), a Certified Nutritional Consultant and Certified Life Strategies Coach, a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, a member of the International Society for Neurofeedback & Research (ISNR) and a Certified Traditional Naturopath through American Naturopathic Certification Board.

A Letter from Dr. Leslie
Dear Friends,I am sure we have much in common. We each live in a stressful world and find our individual ways to handle this stress. Our stress may come from anywhere: relationships, family, job, physical illness, finances, responsibilities, or past experiences. Our bodies often react to the stress whether it is physical, emotional or spiritual. The result of the universal toll it takes on us? You and I are bombarded by T.V. ads for the latest cures and fad diets only to be left frustrated once again. We find ourselves running from meeting to meeting, taking phone calls along the way. We grab lunch while returning emails and then rush home in heavy traffic to our overworked and underpaid spouse, each of us trying not to react to some petty idiosyncratic detail. We collapse in front of the T.V. after grabbing fast food for dinner followed by our average of 6 hours sleep. And we wonder why we're always feeling so fatigued and sickly? You might have all of the above plus children and other responsibilities to manage.I felt it was time to change my life, time to give more respect to my total well-being. I invite you to explore my website, make an appointment, and let me help you learn about the simple and rewarding process I found....to serenity and wellness.Your herbal doc,Leslie G. Shew, PhD, CTNCertified Life Strategies Coach

Holistic Blood Chemistry Analysis
Holistic blood chemistry analysis utilizes standard blood testing to determines weak links in your body's organs and glands, as well as determining your metabolic type. Mathematical formulas are used to look for patterns which point to certain imbalances in the body. This information is then used to design a customized diet and supplement program to optimize your health potential. We are looking for underlying causes for imbalances whether they are nutritional, emotional and/or stress related.
Holistic Blood Analysis Session Includes:
1. A chart showing the top 3 most out of balanced organs/glands
2. Supplement and diet suggestions based on the top 3 most out of balanced organs/glands
3. A detailed report with your specific metabolic type based on your lab results along with diet/lifestyle suggestions for that specific metabolic type.
Consultations are preferred in office but are available by phone or email for those living out of the area. General wellness sessions without Blood Analysis are also available.

“After initially being diagnosed with a thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s) and being told I would have to be on medication for the rest of my life, I went to see Dr. Leslie. She saw that my thyroid wasn’t work properly but prescribed the right combination of supplements for me that had my thyroid back to normal within three months. When I went back to my MD, he couldn’t believe he was looking at the same thyroid! He decided that he had ‘misdiagnosed’ me because of my completely healthy thyroid now. Thanks Dr. Leslie... no more thyroid medication for me!”Marcia R.
“The care I received from Dr. Leslie after being hurt in a car accident was beneficial in my healing process.

“My family and I have known and have been seeing Dr. Leslie Shew for about four years now. She has been amazing to work with in so many areas of our family’s health. Nutrition, sleep issues, emotional, stress, general health, neurofeedback...all of which have helped me, my husband and family. She always goes above and beyond and is dependable, conscientious, honest and a wonderful person inside and out. I have referred many of my friends and family and continue to do so.” Lorrie H.
