Find out in this free 7-day email course and learn how radical self-compassion can help you recognize signs of burnout, reverse damage caused by stress, and restore your physical, mental, and spiritual health.
The tools and workbook offered in the RETREAT mini-course will help you begin to think through your own particular pattern of living; your commitments and point of balance between your work, your relationships, and your life. You will begin to see the areas of your life where more or less is needed; be it more communion with others or more solitude with self. You’ll design a self-compassion practice that will feel like an island oasis awaiting you. Most importantly, the skills you will gain in your RETREAT will deepen your self-awareness and strengthen your resilience to face life’s inevitable challenges with wisdom and grace.
Routine preventative healthcare, mindful medication management for mental health, nutritional counseling and functional medicine testing. With nearly 30 years of experience, we’re committed to empowering you to take control of your own health through an integrative and holistic approach to healing. These services and more are available in our Pikesville office or via telemedicine for patients in the Maryland and District of Columbia region.
Personalized health coaching designed to help you achieve better sleep, a healthier gut microbiome, balanced hormones and a mind-body practice that will leave you feeling more centered and focused in your life. Functional medicine testing combined with finding clarity about your core values will help you gain the confidence and courage to unlock your strengths, overcome your challenges and break through your roadblocks.
There is solid clinical evidence that inflammation can damage your cells, dampen your mood and drastically impact your physical and mental health. Chronic health conditions like diabetes, dementia, irritable bowel disease, depression, anxiety and mood orders all have one thing in common — cellular stress that disrupts your gut microbiome, alters your gene expression, down-regulates your immune system and changes the way your body responds to stress.
Years ago the answer to these debilitating diseases was medication or surgery.
Today, you are in control. No more hacks. No more band-aids. No more quick-fix solutions that don’t work.
At Seva Health we help you get to the root cause of your symptoms with functional lab testing.
Our mission at Seva Health is simple: to bring exceptional, integrative healthcare back to the forefront. We deeply believe that healthier people build healthier communities. Healthier communities lead to stronger societies and stronger societies lead to a better world for future generations to come. Our work begins and ends with compassion and an unwavering commitment to whole-person healthcare care for all.
We believe that an individual’s health is the most sacred experience of all.
It is an honor and a privilege to be a health care provider; to give the care and guidance needed to cure an illness and restore health. We value individuality and the diversity of personal experiences and cultural differences. We value the art of listening to truly understand a health concern. Our practice model is designed for longer visits with your provider which allows the time needed to develop a therapeutic relationship. The result is a deeper connection and mutual trust.
We believe that honesty is fundamental to good clinical practice.
We value transparency and honest, authentic relationships. The trust and respect we gain from our patients and their families is rooted in our commitment to honest communication and accepting responsibility for the care we give. Understanding your goals and values while practicing at the highest standard of evidence-based care reduces the risk of dangerous errors and improves our end results. Simply stated: honesty is the building block of our practice.
We believe that knowledge is powerful and key to overall wellness.
We admit: we’re old fashioned. We believe in the timeless maxim that ‘an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.’ We change lives, not just symptoms by finding the root cause of illness and using a broad, integrative approach to healing. We’re constantly learning, paying special attention to new scientific evidence on the role of nutrition, personal stress and mental well-being in health. Knowledge inspires us and helps us help you apply sustainable self-care practices at every stage in life.
Whether it’s losing weight or lowering your cholesterol, you already know that you need to make changes. But change is hard isn’t it? It’s scary and it’s uncertain in a world full of uncertainty and conflicting information.
That’s why we’re here to remind you that you don’t have to do everything at once. We’re here to help you take it one step at a time; steps that matter and steps that will make a major difference in your life.
Lifestyle medicine puts you in control and helps you change the things you can, step by step. Together we’ll help you uncover the root cause of your concerns to help you change your life, not just your symptoms.
We believe that good health is so much more than an annual physical and the weight on a scale. Good health is also the amount of harmony, joy, peace, purpose and fulfillment we feel in our lives — but it’s hard getting there alone.
We know that community matters now more than ever before.
If you’re searching for a new path to wellness and looking for a safe, private and supportive community where you can put an end to negative self-talk and start building a solid foundation for life-long health we welcome you to join us.
My biggest issue has always been my weight and it scares me because everyone in my family is diabetic. After having my physical and figuring out that there was nothing really “wrong” with me, Angel helped me really get serious about it. It wasn’t my thyroid or any other kind of problem. It was just me. She asked me questions that no doctor had ever really asked me before. I learned how to pay attention to my body and I learned how to stop the negativity that I kept repeating to myself. I realized I could actually get control over my eating and my exercise. I still have a ways to go but when I look in the mirror now and see myself 30 pounds lighter and realize that I’m not prediabetic anymore? I still can’t believe this is me.
My coaching sessions with Angel aimed at helping me see my potential as I made a major career transition in my life which needed a transformation in my mindset. I was struggling with seeing my potential and that my misconceptions were holding me back from true change. Through several good suggestions, such as journalling and mindfulness, I was able to work past these obstacles and be more aware of myself and the gifts that I have to offer. What I appreciated the most about working with Angel is her patience, flexibility and wisdom, and her passion for helping people achieve their best and think creatively and outside the box. Through Angel's guidance and encouragement I have definitely become more action-oriented and feel more in charge of my destiny.
Seeing wellness as a wheel in the way that Angel has designed it instead of a list has made wellness more accessible to me. There is no first place where one must start and no order in which things must be achieved in order to be successful. I’m also intrigued with addressing financial and environmental wellness as key components of our well-being and sense of health. We truly cannot feel secure or be able to manifest other aspects of health without the financial piece in place. It has allowed me to engage with the concept of wellness in a creative fashion instead of feeling that there was something punitive about making time and space to care for myself.
For years I have struggled to lose weight and knew that something felt "off" in my body, but every year when I got my annual physical exam my doctor said I was healthy based on the standard tests. I even had some other tests done through specialists to explore possible reasons for the constant weight gain despite a healthy diet and lifestyle, but nothing done in the traditional medical model found any issues in my body. I decided to work with Angel to see if her holistic approach and her knowledge in functional medicine might finally find out what's going on with my body. All it took was one test that she ordered right from the get-go and we had our answers! Since that test a few months ago, I have been able to successfully lose weight with Angel's guidance and encouragement. She is empathetic, patient and wise. I highly recommend working with her to tackle your health goals!
Dear Angel, You don't know me - I just follow you online. I wanted to let you know, though, that I have found your take on wellness, parenting and (well, life I guess) to be wonderful and helpful to me. Sometimes we through help/information into the world and we can't always see who's picking it up. I wanted to let you know that what you do has been very helpful to me --- even from afar. Many thanks!
Angel, Thank you so much for your being so kind with my mom. You are a real Angel, not just by name. I wish you good luck with your journey and maybe one day I'm going to see you in my home, helping my people. Take care and God bless you! ~ Celina
"I've struggled for years to find a medication regimen that both worked for my anxiety and depression and didn't cause intolerable side effects. Angel Shannon is a creative problem-solver and attentive listener. She explored new options with me and we found something that works. I feel fortunate to be able to work with a provider that is knowledgeable, skilled, client-centered, and compassionate."
I’ll never forget the feeling of being at the end of my rope and tired of being tired. Working twelve hour night shifts in the intensive care unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore while also raising two young children left me with no time and no energy to attend to my own health. Like everyone else struggling through the night shift, coffee and unhealthy snacks kept me awake. Weekends were spent playing catch up on my sleep in between swim meets, baseball games and events that I didn’t want my children to miss.
I gained weight. My libido suffered. My body was worn down.
I know what it feels like to put your health on the back burner for family obligations and professional growth. And I know what it feels like to wake up wondering why your body seems to be fighting against you with aches, pains, a lousy mood and the numbers on the scale to prove it.
I knew it was time to change my life, not just my symptoms.
You deserve the opportunity to thrive, with strong, resilient health that fuels your daily life. My mission at Seva Health is to make the science simple, help you break the burnout cycle and give you the strategies & solutions that support your specific lifestyle, optimize your time, and prevent illness. I want you to experience the vitality you need to design the life you deserve.
