A Pediatrician’s Path to Best-Selling Author and Thriving Practice Owner

A Pediatrician’s Path to Best-Selling Author and Thriving Practice Owner

“When you have seen one child improve so profoundly with nutrition and with this integrated process, you can’t not do this.”

Dr. Sheila Kilbane, FPC veteran practitioner and owner of Infinite Health, just finished launching her first book with the intention of reaching as many people as possible. Her hope is to give parents and other practitioners tools and techniques to transform the health of children for good. “Healthy Kids, Happy Moms” does more than talk about the seven-step process to heal and prevent childhood illnesses; it helps alleviate the frustration that parents often face while at their doctor’s office – not being heard.

As a child, Sheila would frequently run severely high fevers and became very familiar with feeling insignificant during routine doctor’s visits. There was no attempt on the doctor’s end to form any sort of connection with her or her mother, and much less, to determine the root of the problem.

“My mother would take me to the doctor to get a shot of penicillin and I would be scared, and the doctor would never even talk to me. She’d ask him if there was something else we could do or if we should be looking deeper, and he was just not interested in investigating that at all.”

The experiences she had in her youth reiterated her interest in the health industry and in 2002, Sheila earned her medical degree and then began practicing shortly after finishing her residency. But she had a dream. Sheila wanted to run her own practice and in 2012 it finally became a reality.

“When I left the previous practice I was in, it was one of the happiest days of my life. I always knew I wanted to have my own business, but I had no idea how to run a practice. I didn’t even know what an excel spreadsheet was; and I was just bleeding money and draining bank accounts for three years.”

Sheila first heard about FPC while listening to a functional medicine webinar and later, while at a Mindshare mastermind conference, she asked the organizations founder, JJ Virgin, for her thoughts on the Freedom Practice Program.

“I asked her if she’d ever heard of FPC and she said, yes! I hear they’re working miracles down there. So, it was a pretty good endorsement. So, I called [FPC’s] Mike Smith and said you’ve got to come with me. And we went down to San Antonio, and both signed up.”

According to Sheila, what came after signing was the hard part. She said that she worked harder in her first year with FPC than she had since medical school and keeping all the to-do’s from causing overwhelm was challenging.

“Getting all the details done was tough. I had set things up, but I didn’t have it organized. FPC is like a well-oiled machine and the systems approach is just brilliant. I mean, I increased my monthly revenue by seven times in my first year.”

“Follow the system!” Sheila stated passionately before I could even finish my “what advice would you give other’s” question. “I am that classic person who isn’t always consistent in doing things the way they should be done,” she added. “I think if I had followed more closely, I could have done things a little quicker.”

Sheila is now a best-selling author, an owner of a thriving practice, and has plans in the works to get one million kids off medicine. And though she has nailed down her purpose, is clear on her “why,” and is continuously expanding her vision; she feels that true success is in how you live out every day.

“It’s that inner peace and being in flow as much as possible. The walls could be falling down around me, but I always do yoga; I meditate every day, and I always eat healthy.”
