~ Natural Solutions For Optimal Health ~

A place to be heard, get answers and achieve optimal health.

Solutions, Guidance, and Education

We make it fun and easy!

Vitality Wellness and Nutrition Center’s goal is to provide natural solutions for optimal health.  We provide wellness programs for those seeking answers and solutions to their chronic health issues. We DO NOT believe in a one-size fits all approach nor do we believe in a band aid for your symptoms.

While the body takes 90 days to make a significant change, clients report feeling better quickly when dedicated and committed to a program.  This is not a one and done approach or a magic pill.  We are here to support, guide and educate you in this journey but it does take effort on your part as well.

Functional Nutrition

Exploring the Root Cause through Functional Lab testing

Functional Nutrition is based on the approach of (IFM) the Institute of Functional Medicine- individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach to address underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. 

Nutrition Response Testing™

Listen to your body, no lab testing. 

Nutrition Response Testing™ is a non-invasive system of analyzing the body in order to determine the underlying causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.

“Designed Clinical Nutrition” is exactly that: designed (especially prepared based on a specific plan) clinical (pertaining to the results gotten in clinical use or actual practice on huge numbers of patients over many years) nutrition (real food, designed by nature to enable the body to repair itself and grow healthfully).

Testimonials

Words from past clients

No more ambiguity and false advice

Christi gave me the actual playbook to my body and what it wanted through LEAP testing. Immediately my fears and doubt went away when she provided me with my results and got a playbook for my actual body. Christi was accessible, directive, supportive, and so knowledgeable about how to step by step plan my healing process I had no doubt she could help me.

Christi has changed my life!

I have been happily healthy since I began working with Christi and have found the regimen easy to follow. I might add I have had no attacks of diverticulitis since working with her in her program. Her friendly manner and one on one approach are very effective. I am a very happy customer and highly recommend her services to others with similar problems.

Highly Recommend

Christi was able to greatly improve my digestion issues that two traditional doctors were not able cure. She was very supportive throughout the whole process and was accessible for questions during the whole time. She works with you to come up with a custom plan for your needs. I would highly recommend Christi for any dietary issues or needs.
