Ironman Neuroradiologist Helps People Add Life to their Years and Years to their Lives
Shaun McKee MD is a Neuroradiologist and athlete who has found a unique way to combine medicine, a busy family life, and her passion for wellness and helping others. Dr. McKee has always sought ways to be as healthy as possible and to help others achieve their optimal vitality. From an early age, she has been on the cutting edge of performance and wellness. She ran her first full marathon as a high school student, and while her classmates were working at fast food restaurants, Shaun’s earliest part-time job was working as a wellness instructor at a health club. In college she supported herself by teaching fitness classes at multiple wellness facilities and college campuses, continued running marathons, and was a consistent age group winner in triathlons well before “aero bars and clipless pedals”.
She has always encouraged others to join her in her quest for optimal wellness, and this passion for health and helping others naturally led her to a career in medicine. Her fascination with finding the root cause of her patients’ symptoms was what drew her to the field of diagnostic radiology. During her residency, she became interested in the intricacies of the human brain and this led to her advanced fellowship training in Neuroradiology at Boston’s Tufts University (New England Medical Center), where she performed complex and life-saving intravascular brain interventions.
While serving in the Air Force as Chief of Neuroradiology, Dr. McKee completed two full 140.6 mile Ironman Triathlons, qualifying in 2002 for the ITU World Championships in Ibiza, Spain. She has also competed in dozens of marathons and several Ultra-Marathons throughout her medical career. Needless to say, doing so while working full time, and being a wife and mom required Dr. McKee to be at her best.
This interest in optimal health and wellness sparked her to seek advice in 2012 from an anti-aging physician about what else she could do to “biohack” her body and slow the “rusting” that comes with age. Her doctor offered her a natural supplement to reduce “cellular rusting,” and Dr. McKee explains that it could cut her aging by almost half in just 30 days. She learned all she could about the oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction that come with age, and she explains that flipping certain epigenetic switches can mitigate these effects. In 2016, she read a National Institute on Aging report, which included results of a federally funded study on the product she had been using, and it convinced her that this intervention could extend the healthy lifespan of mammals.
Dr. McKee states, "This was a problem in search of a solution, and I’d found it. This is quite simply something people need to know about”. Fast forward almost 7 years from her first introduction to supplements, and she says that she has worked with nearly 10,000 families by guiding them through the use of the product. She reports that her clients have experienced improvements in focus, vitality, energy and recovery. After years of hard work, Dr. McKee has become a sought-after expert in nutrigenomics as The Vitality MD.
Although Dr. McKee’s side-venture has thus far been a part time adjunct to her practice, in less than 7 years, she’s built her side income stream to a high six figure level and is considering announcing her retirement from the practice of medicine.
