About Dr. Chrissy and Craving Organic
Dr. Chrissy’s chiropractic and wellness practice is in Washington State. She graduated with her doctorate in 2007 and worked alongside her father until he retired in 2012. While using traditional chiropractic forms of treatment, Dr. Chrissy chose to incorporate nutrition and diet into her methods to help treat the whole body. Currently she practices with her husband and focuses on pediatrics and maternity care. Her passion for educating families moved her to begin a series of monthly workshops on various healthcare topics.
Craving Organic grew from Dr. Chrissy’s interactions with her patients during these monthly talks—so many patients wanted guidance on decreasing their family’s exposure to harmful toxins in their food and home. Being a mother and wife, Chrissy also craved those things and worked hard to create a healthy living environment for her family. She used life experiences to help mold her personal education in health care. In 2011 Dr. Chrissy was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). Due to blood sugar problems associated with her form of PCOS, Chrissy was told she would soon develop diabetes. She also was warned she had a very high chance for cancer of the uterus. She was advised to look into a hysterectomy to avoid that possibility. This crushing news didn’t sit well with Chrissy and using her experience and education with nutrition and physiology of the body she knew there had to be a better way to treat her health.
After researching many different diets she decided to experiment with the Paleo diet. She chose this because of the low carb, higher fat and protein approach that creates a healthy blood sugar environment. It also helps to decrease systemic inflammation which can be another side effect of PCOS (and many other conditions). She began the transition to paleo in 2011 and never looked back. Her health crisis turned into a passion and now she is asymptomatic and has not experienced a flare up of the PCOS since she turned Paleo. Through this Dr. Chrissy made a promise that she would share and educate her patients and anyone else who wanted to learn how to nourish their body. Craving Organic is dedicated to providing this information through family-friendly paleo recipes, safe DIY household and body care products, and organic gardening tips.
A Note from Dr. Chrissy
Have you ever dreamt about what it must have been like to live in a simpler, healthier time? Where we woke up slowly to the sounds of the dawn and not the harsh beeping of our alarm clocks? A time where we lived off the land without stripping and depleting it? As the need for cheap possessions and having things at our disposal 100% of the time grows, the attachment and respect for our earth starts to dim. This can lead some to resist and crave a resurrection of those wholesome times. To crave when we lived organically. When we lived simply without all the toxins we are exposed to on an hourly basis. We now live in a sick world where every day we are hearing about a new friend or loved one who has been diagnosed with another disease, often times life threatening. The more polluted, more toxic our environment becomes the more sick we will be.
