Carol’s Video Testimonial
A Few Kind Words From Barb
After struggling to lose weight for our upcoming family wedding in October, I was sharing my woes with Christine. I had been counting calories since January and had little success.
Chris told be about Orenda CBS and her own success with the program. I was reluctant but thought I will try. Six weeks later I just could not believe the difference… I was down 25 lb. and feeling wonderful. I also have RA and my body has never felt as good.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful I feel and Chris was there to coach me every step of the way.
Thank you Christine!
A Few Kind Words From Anna
I have been a client of Chrissy’s for years. I’ve seen her for massage and Orenda products. Chrissy is fantastic! She is extremely knowledgeable and by far the most talented and well-rounded massage therapist I have ever seen (and I’ve seen many!). You can tell Chrissy really cares and wants to help you. And she does help with all she does.
One thing I love about Chrissy is the fact that she has knowledge about the whole person. Her ability to combine her knowledge of anatomy, the Orenda products and healthy living and eating has made her such a valuable resource in my health journey. In addition to massage therapy, I’ve worked with Chrissy on the Orenda products. I was skeptical at first, but after a lot of research and having taken the products for many months, I know they are of the highest quality and are incredible. The products literally make me feel clean on the inside. It gives me so much confidence knowing I’m giving my body the support and nutrients it needs to function optimally.
I can’t say enough about how much I love working with Chrissy and how grateful I am to have found Merrill Health!
A Few Kind Words From Dr. Akala Lemus
I have been in practice for over 2 1/2 years serving the community as a NUCCA Chiropractor. Christine has been a wonderful referral source for me.
I refer patients that are having a hard time losing weight, that need to detox, women with hormonal issues, as well as massage therapy. She is great at what she does and she serves with high integrity. So glad to have her on my wellness team!
A Few Kind Words From Kaitlin
Ever since I started working with Christine, I’ve been absolutely astounded by how my health has improved. Staying healthy has always been difficult for me since my diagnoses of Crohn’s disease at seventeen. I’ve had countless hospitalizations and multiple surgeries during the last 8 years. But when Christine changed my diet and started me on Orenda, I not only went into remission, I was able to get off Immunosuppressants for the first time in 8 years. That’s a true miracle, and something that neither I nor my doctors ever thought possible. So, thank you, Christine for everything you’ve done for me.
I will be forever grateful!
A Few Kind Words From Michelle
I would like to say that I can highly recommend Chrissy, I contacted her when I had an emergency situation and could not walk upright and another time when I had to be driven and helped to her door, She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She was able to help me through a very difficult time when my body was not cooperating. She helped me with exercises to help me strengthen my core and area of need.
Thank you Chrissy!
