Christie has been very passionate about health and wellness since healing herself from a crippling case of Crohn's disease through diet and lifestyle changes.  As a result of this condition, she also suffered bouts of extreme anxiety and depression. Just when she thought she has her tummy under control, in early 2007, she went on to discover that she had severe gluten intolerance. She has since committed herself to promoting education and awareness about eating healthy and gluten-free, in addition to helping hundreds of people resolve troubling health concerns.
