"As a big researcher and someone who like to understand the full picture, I so appreciated that Christa gained my trust by providing specific answers about my son’s triggers and maximizing long term health for my whole family so I didn’t have to carry the burden of doing everything. As a result, we’ve progressed along the healing track to experience a much happier baby in general, his skin and bowels have improved, and our sleep is uninterrupted."

So you’re dealing with...

  • fatigue
  • irregular digestion 
  • skin problems
  • sleep
  • hormone “stuff.”
  • inflammation or 
  • excessive allergy-type symptoms.
….Perhaps you've identified some issues with foods or even been diagnosed as Celiac but skipping gluten has NOT eliminated all of your symptoms. 
 
Maybe test results have seemed unremarkable and trying to be the project manager of your own health is getting really old
 
The options you’ve been given or have tried are inadequate or simply don’t feel right...
 
Ranging from inexpensive bandaids like: 
  • steroids
  • antihistamines
  • antacids
  • birth control
To expensive biologic drugs or procedures to “it’s all in your head” to “you could do nothing."

 

 

You deserve to be heard. 

There is nothing more frustrating than being told things are "normal" when YOU KNOW they don’t feel normal. 
 
You’re over the gas, bloating, fatigue, diarrhea or constipation, sleep interruptions, rashy skin and mood swings and wish you knew what to do to get back to normal. 
 
If you’re sick of jumping from provider to specialist without real progress on your digestive, skin, inflammatory or hormonal issues….
….And you’re ready to stop the never ending slog of appointments that are feeling redundant where your concerns are ignored or downplayed...
 

You're in the right place. 

It’s time determine root causes and execute a solid plan that will rebuild your foundation of health so you can get older without feeling older. It’s time to have data and a strategy so you don’t have to avoid dozens of foods forever, change into stretchy pants by the end of the day, be embarrassed by gas and bloating, have interrupted sleep or carry around hydrocortisone cream. 

It’s time to KNOW and UNDERSTAND what is wrong so you can fix it.

When you learn how to correct your own issue, often it has a ripple effect on those you care for and love around you. 

WHO WE WORK WITH:

“Smart people” that don’t want to settle or live with all the symptoms associated with: 

  • IBS or irregular bowels
  • IBD— Colitis or Crohn’s
  • Eczema, acne & psoriasis
  • PCOS & hormonal imbalances + optimizing fertility 
  • Celiac diagnoses that still don’t feel “great” after eliminating gluten  
  • Food allergies & sensitivities
  • Autoimmunity
  • “Mystery illness” especially those that encompass digestion
  • INFLAMMATION
Many clients come to my practice after seeing other providers but are still looking for answers.

We commonly see those that have DIY’d their food situation with experiments like AIP, GAPS, Whole30, muscle testing, etc.—not because there wasn’t some success with making changes but because they want a more definitive, customized plan based on their own biochemistry & gold standard testing.

They want to see the “end point” of ever changing supplement regimens that leave them with a cupboard of half empty bottles. 

HOW WE HELP people overcome digestive, skin, inflammatory & hormonal symptoms:

By using a proven framework customized to your unique symptoms and history, you can finally UNDERSTAND all the pieces that go into resolving symptoms so you don’t have to keep coming back after this foundation is solid. 

 

Fast Track to Fabulous

FOOD AS MEDICINE PROGRAM FRAMEWORK

An intro consult helps determine in-depth lab work that might be missing from your history that will help you shortcut the healing process. 

Skip the guesswork and get quicker results by figuring out the root causes from the beginning. (Check out the free training that goes over root causes)

Just as a sprain or broken bone need ice, wrapping and casting for a prescribed length of time to heal faster, we use therapeutic (READ: effective) doses of evidence-based supplementation to more quickly address imbalances from Step 1.

There's plenty of guidance on timelines & what to expect. 

Like an injury, we teach you how to rehabilitate your gut, skin and support key organs under stress. We give you a long term plan so you know how to continue healing without a mega-strict diet or never-ending supplement regimen once damage is repaired.  

Some want to uplevel and work on improving other things like family health, mental clarity, immunity, etc because they are feeling so much better. 

Imagine what happens when you ignore symptoms.... Limping through life becomes your normal and soon other body parts also start collapsing.

To be honest, there are a LOT of people limping through life. 
The difference between those people and you is...you're a smart cookie and you know better. 
 
It’s human nature to let ourselves hit the bottom before we do something about it, often because we're so busy caring for others. 
 
It's NOT your fault. The world is full of "perfect storms" (genetics + environment + medication side effects + more) that cumulate & might cause issues for you, but not for someone else. 
 
But...you know that you can’t (& won't!) accept getting worse, which is exactly what you're afraid will happen if you let this simmer any longer. 

In this practice, we’ve had a high percentage of clients that work in healthcare at any given time—nurses, dietitians, massage therapists or some sort of other provider—NP/PA or doctor of Chiropractic, Optometry, Dentistry, Physical Therapy in addition to savvy moms and busy professionals. The common denominator is that these people KNOW that there must be a better option than what they’ve been given so far.  And usually no matter what the issue, there is a better solution and you probably haven’t tried everything yet, even if it feels like it. 

"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."

How we’re different:

People are used to going to a provider when they feel like it. 
 
They might walk out with prescriptions or hundreds of dollars in supplements…..and then go back when they feel like it. They might skip a needed visit to save a few bucks or just get lost to follow up completely. This sabotages results
 
The most important thing when you become a client is that we agree on your expected results, the methods we’ll use to attain them and that you understand the steps to take to get there. 
 
We don’t want you skipping out on any needed rehab to get that "hypothetical ankle" in its best shape….so we follow you to resolution, tweaking for improvement along the way. We don’t want you “lost to follow up” which is why we always have an intro call to help customize a plan and program to best fit your needs, so you understand the plan before you invest any time or money into doing something. 
 
BOOK A CALL NOW
This means we work with committed individuals that want a significant improvement in they way they look and feel. 
 

Our clients know that their symptoms didn’t appear overnight and are willing to correct them the right way for lasting benefit. 

 

Our mission in working together: 

  1. UNDERSTANDING exactly what is out of balance and how to resolve it. (No more guessing!) 
  2. GRADUATING WITH KNOWLEDGE on how to feel your best so you don’t need to keep coming back forever and ever. (Our goal is to teach you what we know!)
  3. REDUCING SYMPTOMS overall of at least 50%+. This really depends on each person, mindset, tenacity and willingness to implement and excavate deep rooted issues that have been festering.  
 
*For a realistic assessment, we feel that talking through your personal case on the introductory call is imperative to mapping out a tailored success plan.
**Ultimate outcomes are largely related to mindset and its our goal that you understand every stop of your custom plan and how it gets you to the results we both want for you. We’re not magicians but we do have a track record of success for these issues and will be very upfront about the difficulty of your case, which may impact level and speed of improvement.  
We wish all healthcare followed this model so you didn’t have to piece meal things together and spend 4x as long looking for results!

LABS WE OFFER:

+ Comprehensive micronutrient testing — Available a la carte as a “micro program” to get you started feeling better so you can replete common deficiencies that are compromising your energy, skin, hard working and aging body
+ Gut testing — there are significant differences in gut tests so we use a highly sensitive gut test that is one of the best on the market
+ Food sensitivity testing  yes, providers do not agree about this testing, but we care most about what works for people without leaving them in a place of limitation forever. Get the full scoop on this episode.
+ Advanced hormone testing — (Check out this research paper) 
+ And several add ons as needed. We have access to a broad spectrum of resources but choose the ones that utilize resources more effectively to get the results based on discussion in the intro consult

More about the intro call: 

It’s hard to assemble your own care plan or be your own client often because you’re doing it for the first time. You might be missing the right lab data and expertise that could quickly fast track your improvement.
 
Don’t drag this out for years. It’s not fair to you and your family if you can efficiently and effectively improve and resolve all of these symptoms that are inevitably related. Your body is WAY TOO SMART. 
 
Discuss your case now and get tangible takeaways.

TESTIMONIALS

A LA CARTE APPOINTMENTS

90% of the work from this practice is working with clients in a capacity that empowers them to build a solid foundation and graduation with knowledge and skills to fix their health. However, some times it’s not a fit to work together in a comprehensive capacity. For that reason, anyone can book an ala carte appointment, which is essentially a Q&A without a thorough case history.

An ala carte appoint is a good fit for: 
+ Someone not interested in working together comprehensively for symptom reduction but wanting a second opinion on his or her case. 
+ Someone wanting one session to get some take away ideas on what he or she can do to start improving symptoms, even if complete root cause isn't addressed. 
+ A past client that wants a follow up session. 

Becoming a practice or program client where we are working toward specific results requires application via the intro call. If you don’t know where to start, an intro call is your best bet.

"Since being diagnosed with MS everyone has told me to reduce my stress with very little suggestion on how to do so. Christa has helped me explore many options to find what's best for me. I feel I have a better handle on my stress than I ever have. Another huge improvement is having regular BM. Before working with Christa I would have 1 BM every 3-4 days. Now I go every day. I also feel the knowledge I've gained makes me empowered to take charge of my health."

- Leigh
Interior Designer, age 30

"I sought Christa out after hearing her on a podcast for skin breakouts and general tiredness. I didn’t realize how exhausted I was all the time until I wasn’t! I finally feel like someone understood what was happening to me and wasn’t just going to slap a cream on it or offer an anti depressant. Christa offers a comprehensive, whole approach and will honestly tell you what she can or cannot do to help. As a result, I have a ton more energy, have lost a bit of weight and my skin is SO much clearer. "

- Allison
Mom

"Before working together, I had upset stomach, bloating, fatigue, constipation, acne. I found out I was reacting to specific foods and how improve these sensitivities. The micronutrient testing was also very interesting. Christa is a great teacher and she is quite knowledgable. She can explain things in a matter that is understandable."

Marie
Nurse Practitioner

"Even after trying Whole30 with my husband, I still battled fatigue, metabolic syndrome and PCOS. I would go days between bowel movements and no provider ever addressed this. I found by working with Christa that I had digestive imbalances that related to my hormone imbalances. I now have no heartburn, my sinus congestion has improved, periods are normal and working toward optimizing my health for pregnancy. "
