I work with caring and compassionate women, like you, who are always putting others before themselves.
But, now you’ve found yourself with a diagnosis of a chronic condition and you need to focus on your own health.
You feel like your body has betrayed you. You are frustrated, exhausted and taking more prescriptions than you want to. This is just not how you want to live your life.
Hi, I’m Kristi Perry Brown and I am so happy you are here.
I’m a functional nutritional therapist, pilates instructor and mom of two high-energy kids (a girl and a boy).
If you ask me to go on a hike, I’ll rarely say no.
I help women, like you, heal their body, reclaim their life, their energy and just feel back in control.
We do this by finding the best foods for YOU, building sustainable self-care routines and bringing more intention to how you eat and live your life.
Want to talk through how we can build a plan for you?
Food is a Foundational Pillar to Your Health.
You already know this because you are smart like that, and you probably think you should be able to figure this out on your own. But what diet is best? What are the best foods? What are the worst foods? Spend any sort of time with Dr. Google and you’ll quickly have your head spinning.
With every bite you take, you are either supporting your health or supporting disease. Finding the foods that actually nourish your body can be game-changing.
Hiring a Functional Nutritional Therapist is like having your own health advocate in your back pocket and putting your health on the fast-track. I look at the big picture of your health and I leave no stone unturned. With your intuition and knowledge of YOU and my big-picture, problem-solving, research-loving skills we make a great team to get you back to living the life you want.
You’ll see what foods your body really loves. We’ll address deficiencies, weaknesses and imbalances step by step to strengthen your cells, heal your body and get you to just feel good again.
If you’re fed up with struggling and confused about what next steps to take, I can help.
A Career in Wellness
I have been a wellness professional for over 15 years working with clients in the pilates studio and nutritionally. I never tire of seeing the ‘aha’ moment when my clients truly feel how big of a difference good nutrition and a functioning body can make in their life. I live for those moments.
In the pilates studio, clients would always tell me what they were eating, ask for my advice or tips on what to eat. I always focused on real, whole foods and loved helping people make simple changes. Having conversations about food was just a constant piece of the job. A piece that I loved.
Eventually I became a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner using a paradigm that I already loved; real, whole foods. I loved the emphasis on bio-individuality and helping people find the foods that really worked for them, not any one set diet.
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner I use a variety of tools to help find solutions for my clients, not just band-aids. In addition to a nourishing diet, I support your core organ systems to help you heal from the inside out.
I’ve worked with women struggling with autoimmune issues, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, digestive issues, and post-cancer healing.
I am trained to get to the root of your challenges, even when you’ve seen numerous doctors and practitioners before and no one has been able to help. And, I continue to study functional nutrition with some of the top experts in the field today. Some of my continuing education certifications include:
- Restorative Wellness Practitioner
- Functional Blood Chemistry
- Full Body Systems Graduate
- Holistic Cancer Nutritional Therapy
- Environmental Toxins Expert
My Turning Point
One fall day, I had an allergic reaction to some almonds I ate. I had never had an allergic reaction of any kind before. My husband was deployed and my then almost two-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat of my car while the nurse on call told me I had 10 minutes to get to some Benadryl before my throat completely closed.
A few days later I went in for a follow-up appointment regarding the allergic reaction with my primary care manager. I walked out with prescriptions for antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds.
The allergic reaction was my final straw. I had many different symptoms at this point, cystic acne, intense insomnia, gut issues, recurrent sinus infections and bronchitis, headaches and low energy. To then just be handed antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds to ‘fix it’ was the wall I needed to hit. I was over it.
By some serious serendipity, I had just enrolled in my nutritional therapy training. I knew I had to dive into this training with a focus on healing me.
Step, by step I learned to heal my body and I have clinically proven methods to help you do the same.
My Belief and Mission
My journey led me back to a childhood belief and desire.
Food is the foundation to better health and your body can heal when given the right tools.
I believe you can have the health and energy you wish for too.
