Hey, thriving Mama! I’m Krysti!

 

I know firsthand what it's like to struggle with poor health, low energy, and overall wellness. How do I know what you're going through? Because I've been through almost every consequence of being physically ‘out of whack'. Let me tell you a bit about my own journey back to vibrant energy and encourage you to achieve it for yourself!

For years I fought through daily headaches, neck pain, muscle fatigue, and low energy. I couldn’t run without feeling dizzy and lightheaded, and ending up sick for days.

I felt like my body was completely out of tune.

To be honest, I thought that this was normal.

I figured it was typical to feel sluggish and exhausted, even after a full night’s sleep.

I thought that muscle aches from carrying groceries just meant I was naturally weak.

I blamed my depression and anxiety on myself as a ‘character flaw' and tried to hide it from my loved ones...

I saw other women living far happier, passionate, exciting lives and I figured, ‘I guess this is just the way I am'.

So, I did what most people in my situation do – I sought expert advice from multiple doctors, but I still didn’t get a diagnosis or solution for my symptoms.

Because I needed things to turn around and was left to find the answers for myself, I pursued an education in nutrition so I could dive deeper into why I was feeling so sick and tired. I wanted to know how to fix myself because everywhere I turned… I just didn’t get the answer I so desperately needed.

So, I became a Certified Master Health Coach and dove into clean eating and wellness head-on.

For a long time, I even struggled with infertility issues – until I started to implement everything I learned in Dr. Sears Wellness Institute. It was only after making those vital lifestyle and nutrition changes that my body shifted into a healthier state and I became pregnant with our son.

But… although my wellness journey was improving and I was seemingly getting better… it was not the end.

It wasn't until the birth of my son when things really came to a head, and I reached my breaking point. My pregnancy was incredibly difficult. My energy plummeted, I fought acne, inflammation, irritability, constipation, and poor sleep. My husband was incredibly supportive, but I wondered why I felt so sick and exhausted when on the surface, I had a family and a great job —everything I'd ever wanted.

My delivery was a true relief, but the recovery time took twice as long as I thought it would.  As soon as we got back from the hospital, all of my symptoms continued to worsen. As usual, however, I blamed myself.

The first few months of my son's life were the hardest. My postpartum depression quickly set in and made things unbearable. I was in love with the baby in my arms, but my muscles were so weak I could barely hold him for more than a few moments and felt an inexplicable sadness. Even in the brief moments when I could see through the cloud of depression, I struggled with digestive pain and muscle fatigue.

I relied heavily on my husband and step-daughter to get through the day and asked God to show me a way to a happier life. I knew that this WAS the life I wanted, but there was something else causing this pain.

When I visited my doctor, she told me that I had incredibly high levels of inflammation and that my autoimmune system was failing. I knew I needed an intervention but didn’t want to start taking a whole onslaught of pills and medications.

This was when I started my quest for a whole health overhaul. I studied the autoimmune system, inflammation, and gut health.

I read everything I came across, attended every workshop I could find to advance my knowledge, and took a faith-based approach to healing.

I realized inflammation was the root of my symptoms.

Within weeks of completely changing my diet and removing the foods that triggered my body, I began to notice shifts in my mood, energy levels, and physical stamina. My depression began to lift, and my passion for life came back. Suddenly, I could really enjoy and appreciate what was right in front of me: a job that I loved, a son who meant the world to me, and a husband and step-daughter that supported me through everything.

Since then, my life has transformed in so many ways.

I have clear skin, smooth digestion, and ten times the energy I used to have. My depression is gone, and my zest for life has returned. It's incredible knowing that all of my past problems originated in one place – the gut.

I went from feeling…
