Christine Garvin, MA, NE, RWP is a Functional Health Coach based in Asheville, NC. Her training includes a Masters in Holistic Health Education from John F. Kennedy University, Nutrition Educator certification from Bauman College, functional hormone training through Nicole Jardim’s Fix Your Period Apprenticeship, and Level I – Mastering the Art and Science of Gastrointestinal Healing, Level II – Mastering the Art and Science of Optimizing Hormones, and Level III – Mastering the Art and Science of Nutritional Blood Chemistry from Restorative Wellness Solutions.
Having gone through two of her own major health crises, the first in her early 20s after being diagnosed with IBS, the second in her late 30s when a surgery to remove a fibroid nearly killed her, Christine is passionate about helping both women and men heal their gut and experience better health than they dreamed possible. Christine weaves together her personal experience – which includes healing her own gut after antibiotics decimated it in her 20s, and once again after emergency surgeries to save her life included the removal of half her colon and 8 in. of small intestine – with her comprehensive training in functional nutrition, which utilizes functional lab testing in order to determine exactly what is going on in her client’s bodies.
Christine is a gifted practitioner, speaker, and writer who really cares about her clients and believes in empowering people to take care of their health now instead of waiting until things are too late. She hosts the podcast, Hormonally Speaking, and offers her experience as a guest expert on podcasts, in magazines, and as a speaker for events. Her areas of focus include perimenopause, fibroids, estrogen dominance, gut dysbiosis, pathogen eradication, and leaky gut.
When not working on gut health or hormones, she loves to dance everything from Hip-Hop to Bhangra (as a former dance instructor and performer!), hike the Blue Ridge Mountains, do puzzles, laugh with friends and family, and snuggle her soul-mate cat, Greysey.
