Meet Dr. Shannon Wood-Gallegos – the CEO and Founder of B12 LOVE. Dr. Shannon began her career as a Midwife doing labor and delivery.

Becoming a Naturopathic Doctor has allowed her to blend her talents and experience into the foundation of B12 LOVE, making naturopathic medicine accessible to all.
“I love every aspect of nutrient therapies and also hormonal health. They are usually intertwined and I believe we all need some level of endocrine support throughout our lives, sometimes more than others in times of stress.”– Dr. Shannon
Throughout her career and the foundation of B12 LOVE, Dr. Shannon has changed many lives, including those of the B12 LOVE Staff. She is incredibly hard-working, LOVE-ing, and cares deeply for everyone around her. Naturopathic Medicine is the lifeblood of this company, and her compassion has been its heart. Making Naturopathic Medicine accessible to everyone is not only the goal of the company but a life goal for Dr. Shannon.
What made you decide to start B12 LOVE?
“I have always wanted to make nutrients accessible to everyone and help people find their path to wellness.”
What do you love most about working at B12 LOVE?
“I LOVE hearing our clients’ stories and how much of an impact we can have on people’s lives.”
What are your hobbies outside of work?
“Sleep! It’s something I never get with four young children. OK, I am kind of kidding but not really. I also LOVE sunshine, gardening, the ocean and running.”
How have B12 LOVE services and products improved your hobbies outside of work?
“I have started running again and doing yoga for stress relief. The injections and IVs are so important for recovery and inflammation – I feel both help me to prevent injury, something I never used to think about when I was younger and a competitive athlete.”
What is your go-to B12 LOVE service?
“My favorite service is Rock Your World IV with NAD+ as an add-on. I feel so good afterwards and my stamina is always restored!”
What are your top 3 favorite products at B12 LOVE and why?
“I take my favorite supplements daily, which are the foundation of my wellness routine. My current favorite is Femmenessence Pro, a maca root supplement. It’s my favorite overall endocrine support product. It helps me balance my hormones, and I LOVE the energy it gives me… I have used it for years in my private practice for all hormone support and fertility types. I LOVE how it affects the adrenals and many body systems.
There are three different Femmenessence products (Femmenessence Pro Harmony, Femmenessence Pro Peri-Menopause, and Femmenessence Pro Post-Menopause), depending on your stage of life. I highly recommend speaking to a B12 LOVE Naturopathic Doctor to help determine the best Femmenessence product for you.
My second foundational nutrient is Nordic Naturals Pro Omega Fish Oil. It is a high dose at 2,000mg for two capsules. It can help with all inflammation and brain health and is vital for youthful skin.
My third favorite nutrient/supplement is Vitamin D. I like injections at least once a month and an oral dose of at least 5,000 IU. It is excellent for supporting our immune system and mood.”
If you could advise someone who has never been to B12 LOVE but is interested in trying out some of our services, what would you tell them?
“We have something for everyone! If you have any of the following, we might be able to be a support: low energy, difficulty sleeping, immune issues, difficulty losing weight, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and inflammation. We can also customize a support for you. We have Naturopathic Doctors and nurses to answer all your questions and provide an efficient service in about 10 minutes. Come in and Nourish Your Life!”
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
“I used my own fertility protocol to conceive and birth my son at 44 years old.”
