Today, we are collectively facing a global pandemic. Having the tools and resources to stay healthy and centered is more important now than ever. This community is here to help you stay committed and focused on what matters most, YOUR HEALTH.
I have seen what happens when people commit to their health goals for the long haul, and radically change their life:
But I know how hard it can be to stay the course.
You start out strong, but then you slowly start to fall back into your old habits, foods, and forget about all the “new” things you started doing.
It can be hard to stay patient with yourself and the new course you are on.
Let’s face it, we are creatures of habit and change is hard!
But, you deserve to feel vital, to have a healthy body, and to reach the health goals that you set for yourself, so that you can live the life of your dreams.
Feel confused by all the different types of diets out there, and wonder what is best for you?
Find yourself staying up way too late, and then dragging the next day?
Wish you were more inspired in the kitchen and could be more creative with your food?
Wonder if you will ever have a healthy relationship with food again, and reach the goals you have been struggling with for years?
Do you feel like you have been eating really well, but still not getting the results you want, and you know there is more to the story?
You want to stay connected to your goals and feel healthy and happy in your body, but you might not be sure how to get there, especially if you have been on the path for a long time, without getting the results you desire.
Well guess what? I have got your back on this!
I have seen this struggle, time and time again. I know what it takes, and I want to share with you incredible tools that will support you and your goals.
I created this community to make it easier for you to stay connected and consistent to your health goals, It’s everything I have used to help my clients with for over 12 years to have amazing health transformations. And it’s all here, in one place.
Every month you will receive new content that addresses each area of your life to support your overall vitality, giving you the tools and inspiration to make consistent changes that lead to radical vitality.

“Mary Sheila takes a mountain of information (and entire mountain range of misinformation) and provides it in easy-to-digest portions, well-seasoned, spiced expertly and laid out on a smorgasbord of topics connecting the dots between food and sleep, hydration, movement, self-care, and a host of other things that you don’t necessarily think of as falling under the category of nutrition.
It’s been over a year and my husband and I have collectively lost almost 250 pounds, dozens of inches, and are shadows of our former selves.
But more importantly, we’re eating healthier than ever, we’re hiking, playing sports and being far more physically active than we’ve been in many years, decades even. My husband has been able to cut out nearly all of his medications, as well as his sleep apnea machine and both of us have greatly improved our sleep — through proper eating! We both feel like we’re now in control of our health and can’t thank Mary Sheila enough for her knowledge, energy, dedication and wonderful sense of humor.”
Holistic health is so much more than just food. Each month we will focus on one of the pillars of health, and give you a deeper understanding, so you know the steps you can take to up level this area of your life.

Real Change takes time
This online community is modeled after the classes I have been teaching for over 12 years as a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Ayurvedic Practitioner.
My classes have enabled people to have complete health transformations, and have given them a new lease on life!
“In retirement from work I loved, I expected to be extremely physically active. Instead, I spent 1 1/2 years with unresolved nerve pain in my leg. I used meditation, Advil, daily alcohol, enjoyed cooking more than ever and lots of reading to help me deal…….After two epidurals my situation improved somewhat but I had gut issues, I was hungry and sore all the time, I’d gained weight, still couldn’t walk without pain and felt physically and emotionally stuck.
Over the last year with Mary Sheila I have learned to treat myself gently with daily self care, I’ve exchanged self criticism for friendliness, and learned how my parasympathetic nervous system can help me heal. I’ve made changes slowly by incorporating beneficial habits and slowly let go of deleterious ones. I’m able to walk, swim and dance with care and am even more grateful for my life. I feel good. I’ve lost weight, I like my food choices and don’t feel I have to eat all the time.
With Mary Sheila’s support I’ve deepened my understanding about hormones, digestive health/gut microbiome, the immune system, sleep health, hydration, food allergies, joys of protein (breakfast!!), the brain and nervous system and emotional connection to food……and so much more.
She has a gracefulness in her teaching that incorporates information in a nonjudgmental way, always interesting. I’m so glad I realized I needed help. I’ve been empowered by Mary Sheila to be the healthy person I want to be but had lost sight of.”

Mary Sheila’s Vitality Membership gives you what you need to build a healthy lifestyle while incorporating habits into your daily routine.
Being a part of this community gives you the tools to stay the course, knowing you are not alone on your path to good health.
Often times you loose patience with yourself or your goals, and give up before you get “there”. The problem is, everyday is an opportunity to stay the course, learn more, and stay connected to your big why, so that you can increase your vitality.
Vitality is not about perfection, it’s about staying on your path, creating new lasting habits and not giving up, even when you take a few steps back, or veer off course.
And of course, your results have the potential to ripple out to your family and friends!
As an acupuncturist I am always wanting to learn more about nutrition for my clients. There are so many restrictive diets out there and these can be overwhelming for many. Mary Sheila has a way of teaching that is positive and not fear based. Her message is that food and lifestyle changes that can reverse health conditions don’t have to be extreme. Mary Sheila’s approach is informative as well as fun- as all learning should be.
My take-away’s from Mary Sheila have gotten me back on track to mindful eating and how easy it is to prepare and do it. Not to mention the eye-openers about the foods we eat; really makes me want to choose what serves me best!
I’ve been challenged with a type 2 diabetic condition for about 10 years. This information is comprehensive and presented in a way that simply makes sense. I love having new recipes to try. Mary Shiela’s enthusiasm and love of food makes this process feel more like an adventure.
For nutrition newbies and seasoned foodies!
Each month you get new content including, a masterclass addressing different areas of your health, recipes and nutritional handouts to keep you inspired in the kitchen, and a monthly live call with Mary Sheila to answer your questions.

Special guest interviews with Vitality Community members who are finding success! We are all in this together, and when we learn what has worked for others – the small or big changes they were able to make – this becomes another place to get inspired and motivated!
Expertly Spiced Content – With all the information out there, it helps to have a guide, a consistent message, and a place to ask for and give support around your health journey. We know it can feel confusing and overwhelming. You don’t need to get conflicting advice from your hairdresser, next door neighbor, or mailman. Having a consistent message based on up-to-date nutrition science and the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda can support you on your path to transformation.
Ancestral Delicacies – Mary Sheila blends the science of nutrition with the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, so that you can start to listen to your own body’s wisdom.
Infused with Self Love – learning to love yourself is a key ingredient in the path to vitality. This is your life and your right to love and honor your body, mind, and spirit. Loving yourself more deeply allows the universe to conspire with you in ways that you never imagined. For some of us, a supportive path to get there makes self love possible.
Here’s what Mark has to say, when he learned the health principles that I have been teaching for over 12 years:
Mary Sheila’s teachings allowed me the opportunity to face what I’ve known for a long time but was avoiding, that I need to make some changes. The information presented makes common sense and the practical implementation of the program is not overwhelming, it’s doable. I choose to pursue optimal health now. No more waiting for me.
