by Jordan Reasoner

It all started with a chance meeting in a stretch limo.

Soon we were deep in conversation about stool testing and parasites (my go-to topic when I meet beautiful women).

Once she started talking about ways to help people get off Prednisone I knew we had to record a podcast together.

Christa Orecchio is a Clinical Nutritionist, Holistic Health Counselor, and Founder and Owner of

What I love about her is that her approach is clinical with a functional medicine spin, so like us, she’s always looking to get to the root cause of whatever is going on with someone’s health.

She’s been in private practice for the past eight years helping people heal using food as medicine, and I’m always excited to talk to practitioners about what’s working and not working out there in real life.

On This Podcast with Christa, We Cover:

3:00 How she discovered ‘food as medicine’
7:40 Finding the root cause of GI symptoms (including stool testing tricks)
10:11 Common food sensitivities that might surprise you
13:25 The gut infections you need to watch out for
15:55 What to do if you have an infection
19:35 The cortisol-inflammation epidemic
24:10 Two Case studies: how people tapered off Prednisone
29:35 Christa’s Tumeric Ginger Lemonade
34:30 How important is detox for gut health? (Liver Support)
44:55 Connecting with Christa: Her 6-Week Candida Cleanse


Thank you again Christa, till the next time we end up in a limo together!

Does anybody have a larger list of scd legal foods. My list is 20 pages and only covers so few items. example: Black Beans is not on it and I might have a problem with them. Thanks Wayne

I really N-Joyed listening to Christa, heard her once on underground wellness too!
She sounds like she walks her talk and will check out her site!
Wish I was in the States to work with these fabulous health practitioners in unconventional healthcare, ironically, as we have medical care in Canada but mostly conventional.
