I’m Christina, and I created Grow with Grace Wellness, LLC to help support individuals, couples, and families as they embrace a more Plant-based Lifestyle – whether recommended by your doctor to prevent or reverse a chronic disease, or for personal, spiritual, environmental, or ethical reasons.
I truly believe our health is meant to thrive. Our job is to provide the right environment. No one intervention is responsible for our wellness. We have four responsibilities to focus on when achieving greater balance in health: Sleep, Food, Movement, & Mind.
I found balance in my own path to wellness after over a decade of struggling with a rare knee condition. After two surgeries, and handfuls of highly esteemed specialists, I felt discouraged and hopeless. I was told by many that my condition was incurable and required lifelong surgeries, and by others that I could heal myself with an herb, supplement, or insanely expensive alternative therapy. I felt intuitively that there had to be a missing link, a recipe of sorts that if done right, would restore balance in my body and help me to heal.
I made lifestyle changes to improve my sleep, exercise, eating, and mindfulness habits that resulted in big improvements in my health, and how my knee felt and performed. I realized that stress was making me sick, and while diet and exercise were key parts of improving my health, managing my stress had to become my top priority. I learned what it was like to actually feel good in my body. I was also given something more important than any prescription: Hope.
Our bodies are intelligently and innately equipped to heal when given the right circumstances. My goal is to support you in creating your recipe for healing, and provide tools to help you Grow with Grace towards your healthiest life.
