CURATE a Personalized Program

I’ve been in your shoes.

Years ago I experienced a massive flare of eczema all over my neck and face. 

THE PERFECT STORM:

  1. Ignoring stress from career change and raising a new family.
  2. Ignoring mild gut symptoms: throat clearing after I ate, burping, not pooping daily, itchy scalp.
  3. A straw that broke the camel’s back (prolonged environmental toxin exposure).

    I woke up to my body screaming for help one morning in the form of a disfiguring rash.

What.the.actual…..

My body probably saying, “Can’t ignore me now!

 

I thought I knew exactly what to do to take care of my health---I mean, I spent 6 years in school studying anatomy and biochem, ate all the veggies and made kombucha on the weekends.

I thought I was the picture of health


But my eczema flare revealed it wasn’t as good as I thought. And actually, I was accidentally making things worse by doing things half-ass in the wrong order

 

I hit a low

experimenting with food sensitivity testing, restricting my diet and then reacting worse to foods than before when I reintroduced.

I’ll never forget eating a handful of pecans and my eye swelling almost immediately. I never remembered having food sensitivities in the past and I had made the situation worse. 😳

I was confused, worried and in pain. And that wasn't all....

Inflammation also created unnecessary fatigue for me.

I would be tired after things I shouldn't be tired after, like eating lunch and drinking coffee! 

I didn't have the energy or stamina or give-a-damn to clean the house or cook dinner after work. 

As a health professional, I knew something was majorly wrong to have a flare like this. 

I tried to find an expert to help me and saw doctors, naturopaths and other “healers”. But no one had great answers for me except for the standard shallow toolbox. 

Feeling desperate 😭, I dove deep into research, testing and trials to find the root causes of my symptoms.

By calming my immune system and repleting deficiencies, I cleared my rash, improved my energy and quit living like a hangry bear that wouldn't be without 10 snacks packed everywhere I went!

- CHRISTA

It's time to:

  • Stop stressing about your health, food and missing out on life because you just don’t have the energy
  • Relax about meeting friends for a meal AND be able to choose what you want off the menu.

WITHOUT needing long term, restrictive diets.

 

You always  have options, even if you think you’ve tried everything.
START YOUR OWN HEALING JOURNEY

As a Registered Nurse, I have always considered myself pretty ‘well’ medically. I had even become a health and wellness coach and really learned about how to heal my body with food, but then I hit a wall. I felt like the healthy choices I thought I was making for myself had me spinning on a hamster wheel of fatigue, body aches, puffiness, and weight gain. Even more bizarre, I noticed symptoms with my husband such a constant stuffiness and an odd smell in his nasal cavity. When I started working with Christa and I had the MRT testing done (as a nurse, I had never heard of this) and found that all of the foods that I thought were serving me and that I consumed all the time were the most problematic. Christa used easy to understand analogies to explain that the reason the common foods I consumed (which I thought were healthy) were in fact inflammatory for me – due to a breakdown in my gut lining. I also had a stool test done (again, never knew of this option as a nurse, nor had ever seen a physician order such a test) which was positive for H. Pylori and bacterial imbalances. My first thought was – I am a health and fitness coach – if I thought my health was in ‘good shape’ what does the health of most Americans feel/look like? Christa recommended supplements and dietary changes which benefited me by increasing my energy and focus and decreasing my aches, pains, reflux, and bloating I had been constantly battling. Since I had H. Pylori she even recommended my husband be treated and amazingly enough the odd smell in his nares went away and he admitted to having more energy. The most impressive thing about working with Christa is the wealth of experience and knowledge she has about finding the missing links and treating people naturally vs. just going to your family practice physician and getting the run around of being placed on yet another antibiotic for vague symptoms – which in turn decreases your immunity and breaks down the gut lining. As a health care professional, it pains me to see the way western medicine treatments continually fail and make us sicker. I hope that practitioners like Christa continue to treat others and share their expertise so that people become more aware of listening to their bodies and participating in holistic healthcare.
