Take Your Digestive Health Into Your Own Hands

Working with a certified holistic health coach and digestive health expert like myself, we will:

Pinpoint Root Causes

Whether you’re working with me one-one-one or in a group program, you will learn how to identify the signals your body has been sending you for months (or even years), understand what these signals mean, know how to begin relieving them naturally, and restore balanced gut health – for good!

Customize A Plan

With a deeper understanding of what’s going on inside your body, we’ll develop a customized plan to restore your digestive health! This plan will go far beyond food. We’ll focus on every aspect of your life, from mindfulness to exercise to relationships and more.  

Fuel Your Body

There are many foods that are so great for gut health, and others that are not. We’ll pinpoint which ones you should be avoiding (temporarily or long-term), which ones you should add more of and you’ll have access to recipes and resources to make easy, affordable and delicious meals.

Restore Gut Health

Working with me, you will gain lifelong skills and tools to restore gut health and keep it in balance. We’ll talk through how to handle slip-ups, what to do when traveling or going out and much more. With a practical plan, you can implement these changes for the rest of your life.

Experience Life Changing Health Coaching

I take a smarter, holistic and completely customized approach to helping you live a healthy life

Do you feel like something just isn’t right with your digestion? 

Have you had digestive issues for awhile now but never really taken the time to look into what to do about it?

Feel like you should have more energy, better sleep and less inflammation?

Have you been telling yourself that the pains, cramps and gas are just “normal” for you now?

Already tried eating healthy but something’s still not right and don’t know what to do next?


I want to get to know you, your health concerns and goals, and discuss with you
how we could work together in a collaborative and impactful way. This first session is on me!



Introducing the Thrive by Food Approach

thrive by food

Whether you’re a 1:1 client or a part of my Love Your Gut group program, you’ll benefit from the expertise from someone who has gone through the digestive health journey you’re currently on. I went from ER room to complete remission from ulcerative colitis in a matter of 6 months after a wild 10+ year battle with the disease. I am now a certified health coach and digestive expert specializing in helping clients find the same relief and a path that’s exactly right for you


My approach is based on the concept of bioindividuality, meaning what works for one person may not work for another, so I’ll never give blanketed advice and no two client programs will look the same.


Working together, I will take the time to dig into your health history, understand your food and lifestyle triggers that aren’t serving you and develop a completely customized approach to health and wellness crafted for you! 


How it Works


The Initial Breakthrough Consultation

Schedule a free 20 minute introduction session where we’ll get to know each other, discuss your main health goals and concerns, and begin to develop a customized plan that will work for you.


1:1 or Group Coaching

We’ll determine in this strategy session which of my programs would be the best fit for you, or a combination. In both my 1:1 and group programs, we’ll dive into everything from food to lifestyle, exercise to relationships, career and spirituality. Working in a 1:1 program with me me, I will get to know you inside and out so that we can develop a customized, effective and holistic plan for restoring your health based on your unique body!


Recipes & Supplements

You are what you eat. Habits can be made, recipes can be learned, the right supplements can heal and mindfulness can be practiced. We’ll cover all this and more! Clients have access to discounts on professional-grade supplements and recipes developed by a team of chefs that are designed to boost gut health.



You’ll gain access to a community of others on a similar health journey in my private Facebook groups. This community is available to you even after we’ve completed our time working together. 


About Kristin

Kristin Thomas

Certified Holistic Health Coach (HHC)

I am a entrepreneur turned fitness instructor turned holistic health coach! Inspired by my own crazy digestive health journey, I specialize in helping clients find their own path out of digestive dysfunction.

My health history goes like this: What started as acid reflux and a dairy allergy quickly catapulted into chronic ulcerative colitis and leaky gut, and later on I tested positive for parasites, an E. coli imbalance and h.pylori infection. OH, and in between all that, I suffered from severe anxiety and adrenal dysfunction. So when I say I’ve been in your shoes and know where you’re coming from, I mean it!

By making strategic changes to my diet and lifestyle, I went from an ER room facing surgery to full remission from ulcerative colitis in just 6 months, after a wild 10-year battle with the disease.

Trained at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and currently studying to become a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) practitioner, I work with clients who have complex digestive issues and are looking for a natural and practical way out.

I believe that EVERYONE is 100% capable of recovering from whatever they have, and with the right approach and support, it can happen. Working with me, you will not only recover, but thrive again.
