In 2011, J and I took a huge risk and up and moved to Carlsbad from the Inland Empire of Southern California. For those of you who don’t know what the IE is, it is somewhere between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Can you say blazing HOT!
Little did we know it was a move that would forever change our lives: inside and out. Back then, I was working out like a crazy person; running, pilates and weight training pretty much 5 days a week. I never felt so physically strong in my life! However, this constant mental fog and exhaustion seemed to plague me every waking day. On Halloween weekend 2011, J and I ran the LA Rock n’ Roll Half marathon. It was my first marathon and boy was I not prepared for it at all. After that disastrous run, I decided that I needed some help. With all of my working out, my body was telling me something was just not right.
The beauty of the Google led me to find this gracious angel: Christa Orcheccio of The Whole Journey. She was a Holistic and Clinical nutritionist that worked right in downtown Encinitas. I met with her and in one session my life was turned upside down! Christa diagnosed me with a long list of ailments: severe adrenal fatigue, candida, leaky gut and if you name it, I probably had it. Over the next few months, Christa and I worked together closely to repair my health situation. I even went on to do a candida cleanse that lasted 8 whole weeks! Some people can’t even cleanse for 3 days and I was so proud to finish an honest 2 months! It felt amazing!
Fast Forward to the end of 2012. I was still a regular patient of Christa’s, working on my prenatal nutrition plan (which worked by the way) and she was preparing to close her private practice to take her food as medicine mantra to a global scale. Since then, she has gone on to appear as a regular on Fox 5 San Diego, the Randy and Christa TV show and so much more.
I’m absolutely thrilled that she will be one of many amazing speakers participating in the Wellness Family Summit coming up on October 13-20th, 2014. Through the Whole Journey, I’ve also discovered many informative healers/activists such as Wellness Mama, Underground Wellness and Mama Natural just to name a few. All of these speakers will also be participating in this FREE Online Conference during that week.
This is truly an amazing opportunity to take advantage of some of the best in the holistic community. I do not regret spending the time or the financial investment that was required to work with Christa. And if I had to do it again, I would in a heartbeat, no doubt. She has changed my family’s nutritional outlook and my healthy, strong unborn baby is going to thank her for it. So what are you waiting for?
