Hi There, I’m Crysta Kremer, FDN-P, HHP, Biologist, and Lyme Warrior
I provide women struggling with Lyme and other chronic illness access to functional lab testing that identifies hidden stressors in their hormone, immune, diet, detoxification, energy, and nervous systems that are keeping them sick. I educate, encourage, and guide them as we identify healing opportunities and then implement all-natural therapies designed to coach up function while coaching down the contributors to the chaos going on in their bodies.
MY FASCINATION WITH BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS GOES BACK TO EARLY CHILDHOOD.
I grew up in Golden, Colorado, a small town outside of Denver. I was blessed to have the great outdoors to explore and get lost in anytime I wanted. I even remember as a kid being asked by my mom what I wanted to do when I grew up. I distinctly remember telling her, “I’m going to study bugs when I grow up.” Although she put zero faith in my future career aspirations at that time, that’s exactly what I did.
Many years later and after 10 long years of slowly making my way through college as a single mom, I got a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. I spent the next 20 years working as a wildlife biologist, hiking, exploring, and understanding how ecosystems worked, the causes of their collapse, and how to repair them. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, I contracted Lyme and Babesiosis.
I HAD BEEN FIGHTING MYSTERY SYMPTOMS FOR SEVERAL YEARS BEFORE I WAS FINALLY DIAGNOSED.
By the time I was diagnosed I was essentially bedridden, unable to work, or function in daily life. My career and life as I knew it had been ripped out from under me. It felt like I was locked in the house watching the world outside pass me by and I couldn’t figure out how to unlock the door…no matter how hard I tried.
I did everything the doctors recommended and I was managing the flares well. But I was still exhausted and in pain. I went to more specialists. I asked for more tests. Maybe it was a food intolerance this time. Maybe it was an autoimmune disease, or maybe it was cancer. Each time they found nothing. My blood work always came back “normal.”
HOW I USED MY KNOWLEDGE AS A WILDLIFE BIOLOGIST TO STOP THE CYCLE OF TRIAL AND ERROR.
In nature, an ecosystem is a geographic area where plants, animals, and other organisms, as well as weather and landscape, work together to form a bubble of life. Every factor in an ecosystem depends on every other factor, either directly or indirectly. A change in any one of the factors can and will affect the entire balance of the system. Soon, if not corrected, a nasty cycle of cause and effect across all systems occurs, and eventually, the ecosystem collapses. To correct the imbalances you have to address stressors on all levels of the ecosystem, regardless if the effect of the stressor is obvious.
When you look at human health through the same lens as you would an ecosystem, you realize we may never know the root cause of our symptoms. But when you identify and eliminate stressors, our bodies naturally find homeostasis and we begin to thrive again.
Once I realized this, I decided to become my own best doctor and investigate these questions about my own health. That’s when I decided to become a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition® Practitioner. What I discovered through this training and running my own functional labs was surprising. Not only did I have hormonal imbalances, but I also had several food sensitivities, poor digestion and nutrient absorption, but I also had gut dysbiosis and elevated markers for inflammation and oxidative stress. It didn’t take another specialist to figure out, nor did it take rocket science to fix. All it took was a determination to figure out MY ecosystem and the right functional labs to tell me what was going on at a cellular level. And once I knew who I was as a genetically unique individual, and my hidden stressors (and how to fix them using proven step-by-step protocols), was I finally able was able to find balance again.
AND THAT MY FRIENDS, IS HOW MY JOURNEY WITH LYME BECAME THE REASON WHY I’M WALKING AND FIGHTING ALONGSIDE YOU DURING YOURS.
