Meet Your Hosts
Founder of Underground Wellness
The word most often used to describe Sean is PASSIONate! This passion comes from a lifelong love of fitness and health, and a dream to revolutionize the way THE WORLD thinks about health. Recognizing the failures of health care, Sean promotes the concept of self care. 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 in Kinesiology (emph: fitness, nutrition, and health), Sean began his journey as a certified personal trainer. Despite his extensive education in health, he was met with much failure as clients got heavier and sicker. Client programs consisted of endless cardio and the horrific Food Guide Pyramid. Rather than accept defeat, Sean took his failures as an opportunity for growth. He has since spent thousands of hours educating himself on the many truths that eluded him throughout his formal education, often joking that he got his Master’s from Amazon.com.
After years of study and a litany of classes and course, Sean wants readers and listeners to uncover the root cause(s) of their health challenges. He believes in 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 focus on symptoms. Rather, he is solely concerned with uncovering the root cause(s) of health challenges.

After being diagnosed with small intestine bacterial overgrowth in 2015, Shivan Sarna set out on a mission to heal her gut and get her life back.
