I am a holistic health and wellness practitioner with a focus on nutrition as the primary driver to wellness. I work independently and in partnership with naturopathic and integrated medical doctors to create lasting lifestyle change for clients/patients. ​Six pillars that I’ve termed R.A.W. Lifestyle System (Really Awesome Way), was developed from my own experiences, backed by scientific evidence.​  With the integration of whole foods, supplements and medicines (if applicable), coupled with spirit, mind and body engagement, clients may restore or improve their overall wellness by following the basic R.A.W. Lifestyle System.   ​Originally from Illinois, and prior to a career in wellness, I held a diverse 30+ year career in business management, communications, and consulting.  My career includes leadership roles for major companies and nonprofits where I’ve managed strategic partnerships and created programs with Fortune 500 companies with a bottom line of $10M in revenue, sponsorships and in-kind donations.  ​When my employer quickly downsized, I began my own consulting practice to help entrepreneurs and proprietors build their business.  I’ve independently coached and consulted with more than 500 business leaders through my programs, conferences, and partnerships with higher education, government and nonprofit entities.​As the years flew by, I found myself professionally flourishing, but plummeting in health.  Though I tried different weight loss programs, nothing worked.  I resolved to believe that I’d be overweight (and unhealthy) the rest of my life and engulfed myself in working around the clock to create solutions for clients.​One day, I was in pain and could not get out of bed.  I thought it was food poisoning.  A good friend suggested I try a holistic treatment (colon hydrotherapy).  I didn’t know what it was, but, was willing to explore it.  After the first session, the pain was gone.​One session quickly became weekly visits for three months and a 30 pound weight loss without exercise (which I later added and actually become a fitness instructor)!  This started my passion for holistic wellness and led to another career in the wellness coaching.  Though my clients knew the business results, they were eager to learn more about my weight loss and health management routines.  I became a raw foodist (vegetarian), avid juicer, and dropped six sizes in about eight months!  My overall health improved.  Shortly after, I wrote and self-published My Secret Transformation; How I Detoxed My Life and Reinvented Myself. That was more than a decade ago and it’s still how I govern my life.​The same year My Secret Transformation was published, a weight loss franchise recruited me to become their lead weight loss coach and practice director for the Southwest region.  Today, I reside in Arizona and assist people across the country with wellness and integrated approaches.​I studied at Columbia College, Chicago, earned a BA in communications from Governors State University and Holistic Nutrition Wellness Practitioner designation from Southwest Institute of Healing Arts in Arizona.​In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, juicing, writing and expanding my knowledge on integrated wellness. I’m the mother of three adult sons and grandmother of twins.​Credentials:​

The Hospice Chaplaincy Show with Saul Ebema: A Conversation with The Rev. Dr. Andrew Goodhead on Memorialization and Free Writing.


Dr. Goodhead is a Methodist Minister with 14 years Church based experience gained in several localities throughout the UK, both urban and rural. In his role at St Christopher’s Andrew is concerned to ensure that all End-of-Life Care professionals have the skills and confidence to offer spiritual assessment and ongoing support to all patients and their families. 

He has a particular interest in the concept of spiritual pain as a way of understanding spiritual need. For patients with faith needs Andrew is developing the pastoral and religious role of the Spiritual Care Lead. Andrew graduated in 2014 with the King’s College, London, MSc in Palliative Care. His dissertation explored the experiences and attitudes of community clergy in caring for dying people. 

Andrew has published his thesis with Wipf & Stock (USA) under the title A Crown and a Cross; the Origins, Development and Decline of the Methodist Class Meeting in Eighteenth Century England. 

In November 2010, Mortality published the results of Andrew’s research into memorialization: A textual analysis of memorials written by bereaved individuals and families in a hospice context. In July 2011, The European Journal of Palliative Care published Physiotherapy in Palliative care: the interface between function and meaning, this is a philosophical examination of how physical ability affects the way in which meaning can be made. 

His most recent paper, (accepted by Palliative Medicine) based on his MSc dissertation study is ‘I think you just learnt as you went along’ – Community clergy’s experiences of and attitudes towards caring for dying people: a pilot study [in process of publication]. Andrew is a co facilitator for the Spirituality Education Group on the European Association of Palliative Care and a member of the Spirituality Taskforce of the EAPC.

Read the Full Bio of Dr. Shante Griggs PharmD , RPh, DN Below

Shante Griggs received her Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) from the University of Illinois at
Chicago, College of Pharmacy (2006) and has also received her Doctor of Naprapathy (DN)
degree from the National College of Naprapathic Medicine (2014). She has dedicated 17+ years
of practice in community pharmacy, clinical pharmacy services and pharmacy academia. Dr.
Shante also taught from 2008 – 2010 at Chicago State University at the College of Pharmacy as
drug compounding laboratory instructor before committing to another doctorate program in the
field of Naprapathy. Dr. Shante Griggs has taken both of her very cherished medical backgrounds
collectively to be at the forefront of complimentary integrative medicine. Inspired by her own
challenges with back pain in pregnancy over the years, led Dr. Griggs to her doctorate thesis on
the “Treatment of Lower Back Pain During Pregnancy: The Application of Naprapathic Medicine
in Treating Hyperlordosis & Muscle Spasm”.

This research and limited data has also inspired her practice for more evidence based research with the application of Naprapathic Medicine as complimentary treatment & therapy in the areas of not just pain in general but pain & nutrient deficiencies experienced in fertility, prenatal and post partum care. This research, literature and personal experience also created the segue to Dr. Shante’s up and coming book series “Mommy Hurts” not only sharing her personal experiences in miscarriage, recurrent pregnancy loss,
divorce, bankruptcy, bad credit, single parent-hood and child loss; but outlining coping mechanisms, encouraging healing from the pain of each while providing the inspiration and
hope to millions of women globally.

Dr Shante Griggs currently sits as President of the National College of Naprapathic Medicine
(NCNM) while simultaneously serving on the executive Board of Directors as Vice-President for
the American Naprapathic Association (ANA) to lead in the innovation and widespread
recognition of Naprapathy (nuh-prah-pa-thee) which is Neuro-Musculo-Skeletal Medicine that
incorporates nutrition in healing protocols as a secondary scope of practice under the DN
license.

Dr Shante Griggs most recent efforts have been focused in the education to expand the
development of a Naprapathic Doctorate Program at Chicago State University, the University of
Illinois among others. This effort will also create more doctors of naprapathy to serve in
disadvantaged, underserved and underrepresented communities across America. Other
initiatives led by Dr Shante is through her service in health, financial and political education
through the New Life Movement Ministries, a Ministry for progressive, spiritual, political,
economic and social change.

“Food, herbs and drugs are all a part of this world and at times may be used together inappropriately.
It is our duty as health care providers to ensure that they co-exist safely and effectively with our
patients.”

~ Dr. Shante Griggs

The Hospice Chaplaincy Show with Saul Ebema: A Conversation with Cathy Siebold about the early years of the hospice movement


In this interview, Cathy Siebold who has witnessed firsthand the evolution of hospice care since its modern incarnation in the 1960s, presents a balanced and objective analysis of the movement’s accomplishments and failings.

You can also read more about that in her book “The Hospice Movement: Easing Death’s Pains.” 

She uses social movement theory to frame her discussion. Siebold traces the bell curve of growth, maturity, and decline that, to a point, has characterized the hospice movement. Founded by a diverse group of religious leaders, nurses, social workers, and laypeople, the movement was galvanized by the plight of a silent majority: dying patients, often isolated from family and friends in a hospital where intensive, last-ditch efforts to “cure” them were valued more than their own comfort and wishes. In its struggle to survive, the movement coalesced fairly quickly around the goal of securing eligibility for reimbursement from federally funded and private insurers. The movement attained this goal in the 1980s, giving the entire concept of hospice care legitimacy and, ironically, a secure place within the same health care system early hospice activists had struggled to escape. 

You can purchase the book here on amazon.
