A NOTE FROM CHARISSA
I believe that in order to be well, we first need to have a clear idea of what wellness means to us. I do not think wellness comes in a “one size fits all” package. It comes from a clear understanding of our own bodies, beliefs, and having realistic expectations of what kind of individual lifestyle we expect for ourselves. How do you define your idea of wellness? Ask the question, does this serve me?
- What serves my body?
- What serves my mind?
- What serves my environment?
Everything in our life either serves us or harms us. It sounds simple but actually admitting that there are areas in our lives that we have allowed to cause us harm physically or mentally can be a difficult realization to deal with. Once you identify the areas in your life that you believe don’t serve you then your idea of complete wellness will become clear. Do you need help with either discovery your harmful areas or implementing your new wellness goals? I am here to help!
TESTIMONIALS ABOUT CHARISSA
“June of 2011 I realized I needed to change my life drastically. I was 299 pounds (that just seems surreal now) and needed something to do to make sure I was going to be around for my soon to be husband and our 4 kids. I called Charissa! Knowing that over the years she has always offered help when I needed it. (I’ve now known her for over 17 years!) I told her what my problem was and what I wanted to do. By may of 2012 (11 months) I was down almost 100 pounds!” - Sheryl

I am a wife and the mother of 3 sons – 2 in college and 1 in high school. My passion to help others is driven by the incredible results that targeted nutrition has played in my own life, that of my family’s, and the countless others that I have been privileged and honored to help. Before my career in nutrition, I worked for many years in the defense industry as a technical specialist, a technical writer, and in project management. I spent my off hours expanding my love of holistic wellness by working as a fitness instructor, a certified race-walk coach, a Reiki II practitioner, and the director of marketing for a corporate wellness company. As my nutritional approach and diverse skills evolved, I returned to school to earn my certification from the Nutritional Therapy Association and launched my practice, Nourishing Excellence Nutritional Therapy. I am also a content developer and researcher for Balanced Bites and a member of the Weston A. Price Foundation and the National Association of Nutritional Professionals.
TESTIMONIALS ABOUT HOLLY
Holly’s passion for health is inspiring and the generous way she shares her knowledge is heart-warming. I learned more about digestion and my specific digestive issues from Holly than from any doctor I’ve been to. She’s the main reason I decided to commit to the GAPS protocol. -Davinna Artibey Founder & Organizer of The Portland Ancestral Health Meet-up Group, Portland, OR
