Alexis Caldwell, Junior Celiac Chef
Talk & Food Demo

Alexis is an 11 year old Rhode Island resident who was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years ago. She loves baking, cooking, and helping other kids to laugh and enjoy eating, despite allergies or sensitivities.  She’ll talk about her diagnosis and life as a celiac kid, answer questions, and do a food demo.

 

Kristin Thomas, FDN-P, Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner
Seminar

Kristin is a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutrition (FDN) practitioner and holistic health coach specializing in digestive health, autoimmunity, and hormone health, with additional training in Celiac disease, SIBO, thyroid conditions, detoxification, and stealth infectious disease. She’s lived through chronic illness and reversed her own ulcerative colitis, hormone imbalances, leaky gut, food sensitivities, adrenal fatigue, and a half dozen gut infections. Today, she helps clients determine what lab tests will best illuminate why they feel sick and what actions to take to feel better. She then guides them toward better health by eliminating the factors creating the loss of function, adding meaningful lifestyle interventions, homing in on the right diet, and working to unblock the physical and emotional factors that led to poor health.
