Take Control of Your Digestive Health For Good

Working with a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and digestive health specialist like myself, we will:

Pinpoint Root Causes

Identify the signals your body has been sending you for months (or even years) when we run strategic functional lab tests and look deep into your health history. 

Customize A Plan

Based on your body’s unique needs, we will develop a specific plan to restore digestive health for good. No generic advice, no stones go unturned.

Fuel Your Body

What’s right for someone else may not be right for you, which is why we will focus on what it is your body needs the entire time.

Restore Gut Health

Inflammation, food sensitivities, leaky gut,  you name it – we’ll address it. Working with me, you’ll learn how to maintain good gut health for the rest of your life.

I think psychologically, the best thing I did was sign up for your program because it’s made me face my fears about life, my fear of food and fear of the toilet. I’m learning to accept that this is who I am. No one is perfect, but the journey is so worth it”.

Keith H.

“After 3 ½ years, 10 different doctors and health specialists, I finally got my answers and am on a three-month plan to finally address my various illnesses with Kristin. She is the reason I finally have the answers. She is truly amazing. She is there for you 24/7 answering even your most random questions. I highly suggest you check her out and if you have more questions about my experience with her, get in touch and I’ll tell all!”

Maura V.

“Since working with you, I have had an 80-90% improvement in stomach cramps and honestly, I feel better than I have in a long time! The program gave me the tools and support that I needed to finally take control of my health and start the process of healing. Thank you, Kristin!”

Marquita A.

Thank you for being a practitioner that gets the mind, body, spirit connection.If there’s one thing I’ve realized as I continue to heal it’s that you CANNOT do it alone. You need others to hold the space for you that you physically, mentally and spiritually can’t….because sometimes the load is too much for one person to hold. Thanks Kristin Thomas for being one of these people for me. 🙏 So grateful for you! I really felt like you always cared about whether I got better. I don’t know if I ever felt that way from another doctor or practitioner. I have been honored and blessed to do this work with you!”

Experience Life Changing Health Coaching

kristin thomas health coach

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


Working With Me You Will… 

Uncover the real reasons why your digestion isn’t right and how you can finally experience complete healing. You’ll walk away each session with:


A concrete plan of action


Real data from functional lab work


Incredible energy




An entirely new outlook on your life and health


We might even change your entire life in one program! 


You + Me = A Powerful Team


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, run strategic functional lab tests, understand your food and lifestyle triggers that aren’t serving you and develop a completely customized approach to health and wellness crafted for you! 



About Kristin

Kristin Thomas

Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P)

I am a entrepreneur turned fitness instructor turned Holistic Health Coach (HHC) and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P)! 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 ulcerative colitis and leaky gut, and later on I tested positive for parasites, an E. coli imbalance, h.pylori infection, and candida. OH, and in between all that, I suffered from severe anxiety, depression, 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 Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN), 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.
