Hi, I’m Christina and I created The Thrive Program to share my passion for health, nutrition, and mindfulness, and as a resource to anyone looking to maintain optimal health, or struggling with chronic disease.
I believe our bodies are innately equipped to heal and our health meant to thrive, as long as we provide the right environment for healing to take place. The Five Building Blocks we must address to support healing are:
Western medicine has convinced many of us that we have no control over our health–that disease is our fate, and genetics will overturn any efforts we make towards preventing disease. I’m here to tell you that this assumption couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact, recent evidence suggests that only about 15% of our health is determined by genetics, leaving a whopping 85% to potentially modifiable factors like nutrition, sleep, physical activity, environmental exposures. Whether you are looking to maintain your health, reach optimal health, or manage a chronic condition, lifestyle changes are important for everyone. One of the biggest problems with our current medical model is the lack of support available to patients to make real, sustainable change. Starting a new diet or lifestyle plan can be overwhelming for us all, and it simply takes more than a 12 minute doctor’s visit and a pamphlet on diet to make those changes. It is my goal to bridge that gap and guide you down a path towards a state of optimal being that is both enjoyable and sustainable for you and your family.
