85% of Chronic Diseases Are Preventable through the choices and actions we take every day. Our health is dependent on our thoughts, emotions, food, quality of sleep, and relationships. With over 10 years of experience working in hospital and office settings, Kristin, has first hand experience caring for the critically ill and has made it her mission to shift healthcare from a disease based system to a wellness based system.
Kristin specializes in assisting individuals who want to identify the root cause of their ailments, optimize their health, and boost their performance in all aspects of life.
Kristin, has worked hard to uncover the cause of her own ailments including heart palpitations while exercising, severe joint pain and swelling, dizziness, brain fog, and headaches. Surrounded by leading physicians, Kristin, sought the expertise of her colleagues. As a healthcare provider and former Division 1 athlete, she was shocked and disheartened by how quickly her symptoms were dismissed with responses such as, “You are getting older,” “It’s in your head,” “Your metabolism is changing,” and “You need to exercise more. Hire a trainer.” In her relentless pursuit to reclaim her health, she turned to naturopathic and functional medicine to find answers. Kristin was able to heal her body through diet, meditation, reiki, and yoga and is now able to share her knowledge with others so they can heal themselves.
