TPS 17: A Trip to the ‘Dark Side’ with Sean Croxton from Underground Wellness

Sean Croxton “He is a Video Blogger, Radio Show Host, a kick ass Educator, and he isn’t afraid to have a good time out on the town… with a gluten free beer!”

The crew at The Primal Shift have been following this man’s work for quite some time.
He is none other than one of the Godfathers of the ‘Real Food’ Movement – Mr Sean Croxton.
He is better known as the man behind Underground Wellness, and the wickedly well-known catch phrase; “YO! What’s Up Y’all!”

Sean’s dream is to revolutionize the way THE WORLD thinks about health.
He promotes the concept of self-care which means that in order to regain and/or maintain superb health, we must become more responsible for ourselves.

After graduating from San Diego State University in 2001 with a Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology, Sean began his journey as a certified personal trainer. However, he was met with much frustration during this time as clients got heavier and sicker, which led him down an alternate pathway; He turned to the dark side…

Since then, Sean has been working with clients globally to uncover the root causes of their health challenges. He takes a holistic, functional approach to rebuilding health from the ground up. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist (FDN) and Certified Metabolic Typing Advisor (CMTA), Sean does not merely focus on symptoms.

He instead believes in the 5 Pillars of Health:

  1. Diet
  2.  Hormones
  3. Digestion
  4. Detoxification
  5. Immunity

He firmly believes that “Disease is function, gone wrong.”
