REMOVE THE OBSTACLES TO HAVING A HEALTHY BABY
ABOUT DR. SHACKELTON
I'm a Naturopathic Doctor, who practices integrative medicine with an emphasis on women’s health.
My current focus is on environmental medicine and the conditions that are associated with toxic exposures, such as auto-immune diseases, fatigue/brain fog, cognitive decline, hormone imbalances, mitochondrial dysfunction, and neurologic conditions.
I have a Masters in Public Health from San Diego State University and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of California at Riverside. I was the Naturopathic Doctor on staff for the First Disabled Ascent of Mt. Everest in 1998. I was also the creator and co-founder
of Insulite Laboratories, a company dedicated to reversing disorders related to insulin. Currently, I have a private practice called Holistica Integrative Care in Boulder, CO, which I've maintained for 24 years.
I am the co-founder and Vice President of Pride Pads Africa whose mission is to manufacture and supply girls with sanitary pads in Northern Cameroon to keep them in school. I am the author of a book called "Preconception Detox: How to lean up your Internal and External Environment to have the Healthiest Baby Possible.

"Mary has been an integral part of my recovery and detoxification process over the past two years. She listens, asks in-depth questions, never rushes you out the door, and provides guidance that makes sense and works. I came to Mary for help with an autoimmune disorder as a result of being exposed to a toxic antimicrobial product.
Daily activities were extremely difficult for me as my body would exhibit anaphylaxis symptoms, whenever I came in contact with commonplace items such as clothing, plastics, and most any chemically fragranced product.
Through Mary's guidance I have worked on detoxifying my body, strengthening my immunity, and increasing my vitality. I am now able to do most all the everyday activities I want and continue to see Mary to ensure I stay on the path of better health. I couldn't make it down this path this far without her".
"I began seeing Dr. Shackelton in 2004 after I began to notice a number of vague, nonspecific symptoms that my regular general practitioner seemed unable to manage. These symptoms, taken together, could have meant anything from having cancer to poor diet.
Mary was the first doctor I saw who looked at me with a holistic lens and approached my treatment with a "let's rule out..."attitude. She has been exceedingly patient as we've explored what those symptoms might mean for me, ultimately discovering an unlikely diagnosis.
I continue to see Dr. Shackelton because I love the way she has her patient's best interests at heart and would highly recommend her, especially to someone frustrated with care they might be receiving elsewhere."
"Dr. Shackelton has been the most important advocate for my health of any provider I have ever had. I have a complex chronic illness and have a team of doctors including immunologists, neurologists, surgeons, and more.
Dr. Shackelton has collaborated with them, recommended integrative modalities to accompany my medications, and has always provided sound advice that only comes from being a naturopathic doctor.
She is very bright, grounded, experienced, and operates from her heart. I do not know where I would be without her guidance and expertise.
