Background

Chrystyne pursued a career in nursing for the ultimate goal of helping those with diabetes. This passion developed after her son was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 16 months old. The whole family was then on their way to a very healthy lifestyle with a low glycemic index carb, high protein and healthy fat diet. All leisure time was spent in physical activity as often as possible. This has resulted in 3 fit, lean, muscular young men (including the one with T1DM). Because she has seen the results of a healthy lifestyle in our current social climate of obesity & type 2 diabetes, this translates into her practice and her patients benefit. Discovering the Paleo lifestyle has only reinforced what she has always believed: that a low carb, high protein & fat diet is the way to a healthy body & mind.
