HELPING YOU THROUGH MY OWN EXPERIENCE & EXPERTISE
Hi, I am Krista Zweers, a wife and a mom of three growing boys living in Bend, Oregon since 2006.
I have always loved the outdoors, staying active, biking, hiking, paddle boarding, exercising, gardening and making healthy colorful meals for my family.
I've had the wonderful opportunity to travel, live and work in SE Asia as well as Europe and have learned how the different cultures, the foods they eat and their lifestyle are so different from ours in the USA. These different ways of eating and lifestyles made me realize why many people in the U.S. have so many health conditions.
It took me and my children years of struggling with many serious health issues, gluten intolerance and food allergies to lead me to becoming a Holistic Nutritionist.
All 3 of my children had suffered from Seizures, two had Tonic Clonic Grand-mal Seizures that lasted over five minutes and were put on anti-epileptic meds with disturbing side effects. Our youngest son at age 4 developed a slow growing rare life threatening tumor in his abdomen that required surgery and constant monitoring. I dealt for years with stress that led to Hashimoto's Disease and awful symptoms with no real help from Conventional Doctors. Feeling helpless, completely stressed out and so confused at how this could be happening to my family, I spent hours, days and months researching for answers.
I discovered how much poor food choices, lifestyle, stress, environmental toxins, nutrient deficiencies, pesticides, and food allergies all played a major role in our health issues, so I took matters into my own hands. Through food allergen testing, we discovered we all had gluten, dairy intolerances and other food allergies. I completely changed and cleaned up the way we eat and how we live our lives. We invested in nature made, organic nutrient-rich whole foods in which we were intended to eat and took time to detox our bodies from chemicals and heavy metals safely. I focused on rebuilding and strengthening our immune system.
Quite quickly and noticeably our health had turned around significantly, my boys stopped having seizures, all of my symptoms went away, I lost weight and felt better than ever. Our family was not at the mercy of specialists, doctors, neurologists, medical testing, imaging and sky rocketing medical bills anymore!
Because of all that we went through, I decided to spend 2-1/2 years and over 1150 hours to become a Certified Holistic Nutritionist and Lifestyle Specialist as well as Medical Marijuana Specialist by the Energetic Health Institute accredited by the National Association of Nutritional Practitioners, NAPA so I could help others improve the quality of their lives.
My passion is to help people learn how to choose food that becomes their medicine so they can Nourish their bodies, Revive their minds and Thrive. I can help you regain back your health through clean, safe, healthy nutrition and other Holistic approaches to help promote energy and a happier, healthier you.
Remember, ”It's not the destination, it's the journey,” and I am here to help get it started.
