Hi! I’m Christina, the blogger behind Addicted to Lovely, where I discuss all things related to wellness, health, food, fitness, beauty, #realtalk, inspiring people, and more. I’m also the creator of Actually Adultish, a podcast all about surviving as a young adult in today’s world.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from UCLA with a minor in Film and Television in 2017, having taken nutrition courses such as the Balanced Bites Master Class along the way. I am currently studying to become a Primal Health Coach and a certified personal trainer. I will be studying to become a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner in fall of 2017, as well.
After years of personal research and experimentation, I’ve learned a lot about how to live a sustainably healthy lifestyle for my body while addressing a number of health issues that plagued me throughout my life – leaky gut, Candida overgrowth, Celiac disease, food intolerances, SIBO, carbohydrate intolerance, amenorrhea, low thyroid levels, unbalanced hormones, Epstein-Barr virus, acne, depression, anxiety, unexplained weight loss, and reactive hypoglycemia, to name a few. Beyond that, I understand what it’s like to have a complicated relationship with food, especially as a woman in today’s society. I’ve battled with binge-eating disorder, orthorexia, and exercise addiction, but I eventually found ways to break beyond those limiting mindsets and to develop a healthy relationship with food and exercise. My personal experiences and research have given me extensive knowledge when it comes to nutrition, exercise, and psychological struggles.
I’ve tried a lot of different methods to take control of my health, and over time I realized how unique each individual truly is. There is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to health, and it’s important that each person takes his or her own lifestyle and bioindividuality into account when trying to live our healthiest, happiest lives.
There are so many myths on the Internet, in television, in books, and in every other source of media, and my mission is to help set those rumors to rest and help people finally take their health into their own hands. I know what it’s like to spend years searching for answers and to repeatedly be let down by the medical system. I know what it’s like to be confused by all of the health information circulating around in our world and to not know how to make sense of it. My mission is to help others sort through the nonsense and finally be in charge of their own health again.
Whether you need help cleaning up your diet, getting to the bottom of strange symptoms, or just learning how to live a healthier lifestyle, I’m here to help. I work with individuals one-on-one to create customized plans that will transform your life and help you feel your absolute best – the way you are supposed to feel!
