Meet Sharon — the creator and inspiration behind RED

Dr. Sharon Stills, NMD

Dr. Sharon Stills, NMD, is an innovative natural health practitioner who provides therapeutic and diagnostic services to women. She is a member of the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Arizona Naturopathic Medical Association and the Oncology Association of Naturopathic Physicians. She is a certified meditation teacher of MBSR and the AUM Meditation process. Dr. Stills is a well-known lecturer and natural medicine consultant who authors and reviews articles for Women's Health Network where she is also a member of their Expert Panel. She is a graduate of The Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine.

Dr. Stills believes that the mind and body must be treated as one in order for each person to enjoy genuine health, true happiness, and to experience their deepest passions every day. She has helped thousands of women transition gently through the different stages of their lives in order to experience greater health and happiness every day. She "invites women to dance with the RED Card Deck as they create their own individual RED path to experiencing brilliant health, inner peace and daily contentment."

Dr. Stills founded one of the largest and most successful naturopathic clinics in the country and now focuses on seeing patients in a beautiful unique retreat setting in the desert of Tucson, Arizona. Her practice is based in taking a comprehensive approach to natural healing that taps into the body's innate ability to mend itself. She advocates using food as medicine, targeted use of nutraceuticals and addresses each patient's emotional health as a part of her whole-body philosophy for wellness.

Dr. Stills practices what she preaches! When not working with patients, she can often be found peacefully meditating or yelling excitedly while watching a NY Jets game. She loves to buy shoes yet is frequently found barefoot. She loves to bake yet her paleo cookie dough rarely makes it into the oven. She is passionate about physical movement and can often be found at the Hot Yoga Studio, running a mountain trail or dancing all her worries away at a live music venue. She is a hot-tub junkie and an avid skier who has mastered all the bunny hills she has ever traversed. She has a serious case of wanderlust and considers her heavily stamped passport one of the best indicators of her own well-lived RED life – that coupled with spending time with her two sons and her adorable grand-puppies. Dr. Stills is a regular contributor to Women's Health Network where she writes about health and happiness.

Why Dr. Stills created RED

RED is an approach to being healthier than you've ever imagined — both physically and emotionally. In the RED way of living, good health becomes the real foundation for being happy. For many women, focusing on physical wellness is the simplest place to begin because it helps brings happiness within reach, perhaps for the first time ever. With RED, true happiness can also be healing to the body, and certainly the soul.

When you're RED every day, you move closer to becoming your authentic self, or self-actualizing. The path to being RED opens wider every time you say "yes" to opportunities that can help you achieve your goals and fulfill your deepest desires. You might never have been aware of these daily crossroads before you became RED but these moments are ever-present in your life — if you're RED enough to notice them.

Being RED allows you to release negative patterns and behaviors one at a time, at your own pace. This freedom creates a kind of spaciousness within you that you choose to fill with more positive pursuits. In many ways, being RED means getting out of your own way so you can bring your best qualities to the forefront of your life. As you become RED, you will notice that your positive and negative qualities (your personal yin and yang) will begin to merge and become more balanced in relation to each other.

The reason for RED

If you are here, then you must be searching as I once was. We are all spiritual beings with the same wants, needs and desires and our stories are intertwined. So what are we all looking for? A way to be healthier, a path to deeper insight, a feeling of freedom, how to appreciate our own beauty, how to honor and experience sensuality, how to inhabit our individual sexuality, and more — much more.

If you're searching for more in your life, I ask you …

  • If not now, then when? When will it be the right time for you to pay attention to yourself? There's no time like the present.
  • If not you, then who? Who else will take the time to understand you and what makes you feel alive? You must do this for yourself.
  • If not RED, then what? What will be your inspiration to make a change and put yourself in charge of all the aspects of your life? Become RED now.

I invite you to say YES to Reinventing your Health, Exploring your Happiness and Discovering your RED life. Being RED means you matter and you are worth it!
