Are You Tired? Tired of the Trial and Error Cycle? The Brain Fog and Lack of Energy? Are you ready to get real results that last?
I can relate. I thought I was doing all ‘the right things’, which seems to be ever evolving. I exercised, starting cutting out all the ‘fun’ stuff like cheese, bread and wine. These were my staples in my 20’s and as long as I was working out I was able to maintain a good weight and shape. Things started to change in my 30’s and my pants size was growing. I had year round allergies and my belly would get so bloated I looked pregnant. It’s all well and good to look pregnant when you are, but it’s a nightmare when you aren’t!
I went to my doctor looking for help, and went that was a bust I tried a Naturopath. I did discover I had what is now commonly known as leaky gut, but at the time it was a relatively new term. I went off gluten and dairy for 6 months and my allergies cleared up and my puffy belly shrank back down.
I’d like to say I was cured! I was “fixed” and could go back to my normal life. The truth was, while I did have relief, the reason I had intestinal permeability aka “leaky gut” in the first place was unresolved. It would take many more years and personal education to start unlocking the keys to my health puzzle.
If You’ve Experienced Similar Challenges, You’re in the right place!
During my pregnancies, I was borderline gestational diabetes. Type 2 is common on my father’s side of the family and although I was thin, I learned I fit into the “skinny -fat” category. That’s where you look like you are in good shape and your body is performing optimally, but in reality there are issues happening on the inside that haven’t shown up on the outside yet. I was already insulin resistant and was a year or two away from tipping the T2 diagnosis. I was beginning to have the thyroid issues many people suffer from and are often connected with insulin resistance.
Once I learned about the lifestyle changes necessary to slow and reverse my health challenges I no longer had the brain fog, the fatigue, or waking up in the wee hours of the morning. My weight settled to a healthy level and I felt better than I had in years.
This path of healing instilled a desire to help others on their own health journey.
It may feel like a fantasy, but it’s possible, and I’m here to show you how.
I specialize in resolving Metabolic Chaos® by assessing underlying conditions and contributors through a comprehensive onboarding process including careful history taking and lab investigation to create a customized D.R.E.S.S. for Health Success Program®. While symptoms may be common, they are not ‘normal’ and each individual is unique.
I help busy professionals get their metabolism working optimally so they can feel energized, well rested and reach an ideal weight without dieting and an endless cycle of trial and error.
If you feel like you are not yourself, that you’ve tried everything, including doctors visits and you find yourself back at the starting line with fewer answers and options, it’s time for a better solution.
I can’t wait to show you a better way!

“I met Kristina two years ago taking a barre class. Her demeanor and personal energy was contagious. She always has a sunny disposition; I inquired what her secret was.

Thank you, Kristina, I feel great mentally and physically.” – Stacey Koschik
“Before I started working with Kristina, my energy level and sleep patterns were all over the place. I have a thyroid condition which I have always blamed for my low energy. Working with Kristina over the course of a few months I am amazed how much more energy I have! My slumps in energy were mainly due to the kinds of foods I was eating, and not knowing what foods my body was having a poor reaction to. It has been a very eye opening experience and a journey I strive to continue with as a life change and not just a diet fad. I am grateful and want to thank Kristina for her help and guidance.” – M.B. 2017

My Official Bio
My approach is about gathering the whole picture of where you are now, where you’d like to be and the pain points you’ve struggled with in achieving your health goals. I’ll be sharing simple, effective ways to regain your health and feel energized and truly well.
As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® (FDN) Practitioner I follow a logical course of investigation with the use of labs that provide observations that are otherwise unavailable which help identify healing opportunities and point out weakness.
I seek hidden stressors and underlying malfunctions until my clients are well.
The D.R.E.S.S. For Health Success® protocol represents everything a person has to do to get well and stay well naturally. It is not a medical program and does not treat anything specifically like a doctor, but treats everything non-specifically. I truly believe it’s the ultimate self-care program.
When you follow these lifestyle factors closely and apply these wellness principles – they have a beneficial effect on every cell, every tissue, every organ and every system in the body.
I received my training from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition*, where I studied a variety of dietary theories and practical lifestyle coaching methods. I am a Certified International Health Coach by the International Association of Health Coaches, as well as a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioner as an expert in the health field as a Holistic Health Practitioner.
With my knowledge, we co-create completely personalized actions based on your goals to move you toward your ideal vision of health within your unique body, lifestyle, preferences, and resources. I have received additional training in Functional Medicine through The School of Applied Functional Medicine. This training allows us to dive deeper into the root cause of a variety of health and dietary concerns. Solving health concerns at the root allows for a depth of healing and wellness that has a profound emotional and physical impact.
