"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."
“Smart people” that don’t want to settle or live with all the symptoms associated with:
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.
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.
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."
*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!BOOK INTRO CALL
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."
"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. "
"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."
"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. "
HSA, FSA and payment plans are available. After services have been rendered, you can request a medical superbill that can be submitted to your insurance for reimbursement if they cover Registered Dietitian services. Health sharing co-ops/plans seem to reimburse as well. Some labs do accept insurance and that can be explained in intro call.
