96: Boosting Immune System, Bone Broth and A Cleansing Detox – Kristi Acuna

How To Boost The Immune System – Kristi Acuna

My guest today is a fantastic example of someone in the holistic health field who is living her passion! I like to call her Controversial Kristi! While everyone in the mainstream was promoting low-fat diets she was telling us to eat lard and avoid kale! You need to listen to this interview to truly appreciate her sound advice for better health and more energy!

“I graduated with my BSNU in holistic nutrition and have certificates in completing a certain amount of hours training in Advanced Clinical Nutrition Response Testing.”

Kristi Acuña was born with a severe case of psoriasis – an autoimmune disease that causes red, patchy skin from head to toe. Her childhood was filled with frequent visits to pediatricians, dermatologists, and alternative health care practitioners to help cure – or at least control – her psoriasis. Each doctor visit became one disappointment after another, as all the medical professionals focused on treating her symptoms rather than getting to the root cause of the problem – what she was putting into her body. Consequently, all attempts failed.

After years of dealing with this unsightly and often painful disease, combined with taunting from her peers and classmates, Kristi’s self-esteem plummeted. Embarrassed and frustrated, Kristi wondered if she’d ever have a normal life.

When Kristi was 19 years old, her mother, a Registered Nurse for 27 years, studied to become a Traditional Naturopath. She was able to uncover the root cause of Kristi’s psoriasis and introduced her to a line of whole food supplements called Standard Process. The supplements and her new individualized nutrition plan cleared the psoriasis and gave Kristi a level of confidence she had never before experienced.

Holistic Nutrition gave Kristi back her LIFE.

Fueled by her gratitude for Holistic Nutrition and Standard Process’ amazing products, plus her desire to give others the gift of life and good health she has experienced, Kristi earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition from Clayton College of Natural Health in Birmingham, Alabama. She’s been practicing Holistic Nutrition for over 11 years in Newport Beach, CA. She is also a graduate of advanced clinical training in nutrition response testing.

Kristi’s main objective is to find the root cause of her clients’ ailments and address them through nutrition and supplements. She applies two techniques:

Applied Kinesiology – a system that evaluates the structural, chemical, and mental aspects of health using manual muscle testing; and
Foundational Evaluating – a physical examination by which a practitioner feels for inflammation and pressure in the body through palpation.

“I made and sell a DVD that is a tutorial walkthrough on how to grocery shop for your and your family. I walk though whole foods pointing out great brands to look for and health benefits and tips for alternatives! Really informative and helpful for the person who is lost at the store unsure of how to shop healthy for their family. it sells for $14.95”
