I’m Christopher Blakeslee, an ADAPT-Certified Functional Health Coach through Chris Kresser’s ADAPT Academy and a National Board Certified Health & Wellness Coach. I help individuals like you who are struggling with chronic health problems. My practice covers problems such as autoimmune disease symptoms, chronic pain, neuropathic pain, traumatic injury, headaches, arthritis, and back pain. So if you’re tired of taking pills and looking for solutions for chronic pain or cures for chronic illness, or have tried all the conventional and natural remedies for chronic health problems and still had no success, this is the place for you to turn your health around!
I’ve conquered absolute hell with my chronic health problems. Because of that experience, I drive myself to help others in similar health scenarios. I had autoimmune diseases for thirty-four years, which disabled me for fifteen years. These included severe interstitial cystitis, fibromyalgia, and irritable bowel syndrome. Additionally, I had excruciating nerve pain in my head, shoulders, neck, waist, and legs. As a result, I lived through the sort of constant pain and bizarre symptoms that I never imagined were possible.
During those years of disability, I searched in vain for cures from conventional and alternative medicine. Every moment I could, I studied heaps of health resources. Today, my conditions are in remission because I developed an integrated view of mind and body in health. The four pillars of wellness I discovered in my studies led me back to robust and resilient health. The four pillars are Functional Medicine, Lifestyle Medicine, a survive-and-thrive mindset, and pain neuroscience. I received an education on the latter from former Mayo Clinic doctor Jim Lemons. I was able to regain control of my life by combining those disciplines and making lifestyle changes in six core categories. Those areas are diet and supplementation, stress management, exercise, sleep and sunshine, environmental toxin exposure and dealing with stealth infections, and reducing my reliance on medications. Now, I’m healthier and have a better life than I’ve ever had!
