About the Presenter:
Dr. Crista earned her Naturopathic Doctor Degree with Honors from the National University of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, OR in 2003. For over a decade, she was director and practicing member of two integrative clinics offering naturopathic medicine, integrative medicine, acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, and massage. Here she witnessed the efficacy and synergy of a team approach to patient care. She’s now focusing on research, teaching, and writing.

As an experienced PANDAS/PANS parent and treating physician, Dr. Jill Crista recognizes that as much as she wishes it to be true, there’s no magic pill to help these suffering kids. It takes a village, and a village worth of tools. The struggle these kids face inspired her to understand the science behind their strange and peculiar symptoms, and develop treatment approaches that work. Moved by the dire stories and pleas from fellow parents, she committed to sharing her unique insight, which builds “in the trenches” experience and research findings onto the foundation of her naturopathic training and principles.

Ecologically Harvested is a term that describes all herbs sold by Gaia Herbs that are not Certified Organic. Ecologically Harvested herbs include herbs that are harvested in their natural habitat, (i.e., wild harvested) according to specific guidelines for harvesting these herbs (i.e., away from roads and industry, as well as guidelines to avoid overharvesting). Our term, Ecologically Harvested, also includes herbs that are grown in managed woodland areas, fields designated for specific herbs, and herbs that are grown by indigenous growers, such as Kava Kava. All Ecologically Harvested herbs pass pesticide and heavy metal testing as well as microbial testing, prior to release.
