Healthy alternatives to Wheat and Dairy with Christa Orecchio

Christa Orecchio, Clinical Nutritionist and Holistic Health Counselor, discovered her passion for holistic nutrition in South Africa after taking a life-changing workshop called “Optimal Nutrition for the Mind”. It inspired her to embark on a healing lifestyle change including a whole foods diet and supplementation program. After years of daily reliance on sugar and caffeine for energy, changing both diet and lifestyle provided almost instant energy, peace, weight loss and vibrant health. Find out how Christa learned how to regulate her blood sugar, leading to dramatically improved moods, energy levels and balanced hormones.

Fueled by this passion, Christa became a Clinical Nutritionist and Holistic Health Counselor and founded ‘The Whole Journey’ in 2005 to share her knowledge with others. Her nutrition practice is unique in that Christa does not advocate any one specific way of eating. She believes that every individual has distinct dietary needs based upon genetics, lifestyle, gender, blood type, stress levels, how they ate as a child, current state of health and future health goals. Therefore, she focuses on bio-individuality, while imparting a positive and empowering perspective shift around food that results in greater lifelong food flexibility.

Christa holds a B.S. in International Business and Spanish from the University of North Carolina. She is a Clinical Nutritionist (CN) as well as a Holistic Health Counselor (HHC). She attended The Natural Healing Institute and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (IIN) in NYC, and is currently doing post-graduate work in the field of nutrition to obtain her CCN. Christa is accredited by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners.

Christa has been regularly featured as a health expert on TV and in print nationwide. She is the co-author of “The Anti-inflammatory Diet” with Cheryl Tiegs as well as the author of “The Whole Journey Cookbook” and “The Five Tris”. She is also the creator of The Whole Journey Product Review site and a TEDx speaker.  Christa is the Fox5 San Diego weekly health expert where she speaks about using food as medicine and a mind-body approach to eating and healing.
