Our Proven Methodology

Body as One Whole
If you have a rock in your shoe, wouldn’t you agree that it’s better to take off your shoe and remove the rock versus taking ibuprofen to mask the discomfort?
Life-long Changes
By creating a balance between the clinical aspects of health, primary foods and the foods you eat everyday; you’ll experience steady changes in your health and well being that you’ll be able to maintain for life.
Highly Personalized
We believe every individual has distinct dietary needs based upon genetics, lifestyle, gender, age, blood type, stress levels, how they ate as a child, current state of health and future health goals.
Health-empowerment
Our customers have the knowledge and tools to take full accountability and responsibility for their health for the rest of their lives, and know how to course-correct if or when symptoms reappear.
Free of Willpower
While many nutritional philosophies dwell on calories, carbs, fats, proteins, and restrictive “good and bad” foods, we provide our community with the tools and knowledge to create a happier, healthier life in a way that is fun, flexible, and free of willpower and denial.
Mind-Body-Spirit Approach
We focus on primary food elements that nourish you including honest, open relationships, movement you enjoy, a meaningful spiritual practice, a creative outlet that inspires you, and an understanding that there can be emotional roots to physical illness.

No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated by any other means.

‍We are big believers that many are suffering unnecessarily and that if we bypass addressing individual symptoms in favor of looking at the body as one whole, systemic organism where all organs and glands are in concert with each other, the body will heal itself more effectively.

We Help People Change Their Lives

“I began my journey as a mother at a very young age. It wasn’t until I turned 30 that things started to change. We wanted one more child and it seemed that it just wasn’t going to happen. I had multiple miscarriages, one after the other. My doctor thought it was just my body changing. But I couldn’t accept going from having a healthy reproductive system to one with the inability to conceive in a matter or 2 years. I knew I wasn’t taking the best possible care of my body (like I should) and thought maybe I could change that. I found Christa through a friend on Facebook and was hooked!I watched so many of her videos and read everything I could on her website, realizing I could heal my own body! I started with her Candida Cleanse. I changed the way I thought about my food and focused on healing my body from the inside. I started feeling a change almost instantly and got pregnant about 6 months after starting my journey to heal myself. Not only has my body changed, but more importantly, my mind changed! Our bodies are so amazing and can truly take a lot of neglect. Thanks to Christa, I’ve stopped neglecting my beautiful body and started FEEDING it!”

Christina A.

“This time last year I was 40 pounds overweight, having daily migraines, and living with so much joint pain I could barely function. I was exhausted, both physically and emotionally, from 8 years of chronic pain and inflammation and endless trips to doctors and specialists. Today, my migraines are gone, my skin cleared up, my joint pain went away, and my head just seems clearer. I can think clearly, without brain fog, for the first time in years. You have taught me so much about balance, about how to eat real food, about supplementation and about myself. But most of all, you have given me hope again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for literally saving my life. Your program has been truly transformative work in my life. There is truly no one like you! Many blessings!”

Robin D., Carlsbad, CA

“After a decade on antidepressants, I am so proud to say I am not on ANY prescription medications and feel happier than I have in my entire life!”

Lora K.

I got really sick and was diagnosed with Graves' Disease. None of the doctors or endocrinologists could help me feel better, they actually wanted to REMOVE my thyroid. I went to Christa and she healed me within 6 months. It's been 2 years since I've been eating the way Christa showed me and I have almost no symptoms of Graves' at all! She changed my life!”

Jenny B., Encinitas, CA

“My body was in crisis before Christa's [Candida] cleanse. I suffered from recurring yeast infections, inflamed sinuses, severe headaches, and couldn't lose weight no matter what I tried. Her step-by-step process for eliminating Candida cleared up ALL of my infections and I lost the stubborn weight I was carrying around. I have tremendous energy now and love exercise. Christa literally saved my life!”

Kris B.

I came to The Whole Journey initially to figure out why I felt so tired all the time. What I accomplished by working with Christa for three months has been truly remarkable. I discovered the causes of my migraines and now, a headache is rare. I was able to rid my body of yeast overgrowth, to rebuild and repair my digestive track and to heal from adrenal fatigue. What a relief to not be suffering silently anymore! I’ve gained wisdom about which foods really nourish me and have been able to replace or cut-back on those foods that aren’t. I’ve also lost 10 lbs. in the process without trying. This has been a wonderful journey of discovery; I realize that I care about myself and the way I’m feeling much more than I did before.

Carollyn R.

I have officiallylost all my baby weight! Yay for me and thank you Christa and The Whole Journey for changing my life. I have never been in so much peace nor had so much energy in as long as I can remember. I am a lucky girl to have found you!”

Arika D.

After struggling for over 5 years to conceive and having multiple attempts at expensive fertility treatments for “unexplained infertility”, a friend recommended we work with Christa at The Whole Journey. Christa taught us how to eat right and use food as medicine. She ran panels to test for food allergies, medical conditions, etc. (far more than our fertility doctor ever did!). At 33 years old, after a very quick and easy labor, I gave birth to our beautiful baby boy Grayson. He is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. While our struggle to get pregnant was tough, he was absolutely worth the wait!”

Erin & Jon N.

“Christa helped me dig to the root cause of my health concerns and is a wealth of knowledge. She is sharing an amazing message of health and healing to the world. Now that I have my energy back, she has been a mentor and a role model in my journey to start a healing business of my own. I couldn't be more grateful!”

Megan R.

“Christa is my food angel! Thanks to the Whole Journey program, I am now a conscious eater. I started the program because I had extreme bloating, and now this is no longer a major issue for me. Christa gave me the tools I needed to help my body fight the war against bloat. During the Whole Journey program I was introduced to all the various elements that contributes to making a person “whole”.Now I not only eat consciously, but I live and love more consciously. As we Jamaicans would say, positive and irie vibrations forever to Christa and her Whole Journey program.”

Stacyann C.

“Since I travel over 200 days a year, nutrition was one of the primary challenges to my overall health and well-being. Christa helped me to appreciate the beauty in food as well as honor my unique body in a way that enhanced my energy and enthusiasm for life. She helped me to discover that “food issues” were only a by-product of deeper imbalances and that I could find ultimate peace and happiness with my body only when I healed the emotional pain that triggered certain reactions. I learned that nutrition is not just about food but about how each bite – full of flavor, aroma, texture, and color – can bring you closer to finding the essence of what you truly hunger for. And once you find that, freedom is yours.”

Tiffany G., Encinitas, CA

“When I completed the virtual Candida Cleanse, I learned more than I ever would have imagined about about candida, adrenals, thyroid, the gut, and so much more. I’ve already begun to regain my health in many different ways through the food, supplements and support. Words can’t begin to describe how empowered I feel through The Whole Journey and the support group. Christa’s dedication to healing is truly a gift to this world!”

Rachel M.

Living with a life-long thyroid issue, digestive problems, and anxiety everyday made it a struggle to feel happy and healthy. Meeting Christa and joining the Whole Journey has given me the boost of life that was much needed. I struggled to lose weight, feel happy and get through the day with the low energy levels that I had. Now after following the program with Christa's guidance I have lost 30 pounds from identifying my gluten allergy, and am healing my thyroid issues naturally. I now also sleep through the night and have a more positive outlook on life. I am excited to wake up everyday and do not feel like my health problems are holding me back from living my life. The Whole Journey has changed my life with Christa's extended knowledge, kind attitude, and continued support. I would recommend this program to everyone!”

Annie P., Encinitas, CA

I’ve had to do several pathogen purges before Gut Thrive and the die off symptoms of those programs were very difficult. I did not experience any die off symptoms with Gut Thrive. The meals were delicious and I will continue to make many of them even though I am done with the program. I recommend this program to anyone as the last program they will need to do to get their microbiome balanced and their health back on track.“

Connie C., Danville CA

“Making an appointment with The Whole Journey was one of the best things that I have ever done for myself. Christa and her team have completely changed my life and it is amazing how much better I feel mentally and physically. During my first session I really believed that I was healthy and happy and that I didn’t need much change in my life. Boy was I wrong. In just a few short months I lost weight, have mental clarity, more energy and I know that I have control over how my body feels. I know now more than ever that life and my nutrition journey will be ongoing and I feel so empowered to be in true control of my health.”

Chassie B., San Diego, CA

“Christa helped me change my whole life! It is because of her that we were able to find direction to learn how to live the healthiest lives possible. I came to Christa when doctors couldn’t give me answers. She listened and looked to find the “root” cause – and found it! She taught me how to use food as medicine and I have since healed from chronic constipation, a parasite, low energy, adrenal fatigue and emotional struggles and for this I am forever grateful! Above all Christa have given me the tools to regain my fertility after having months without periods after coming off of birth control. I cannot thank her enough!”

Hayley T.

“I came to The Whole Journey suffering from adrenal fatigue, candidiasis, and severe food sensitivities. Christa's incredible wisdom, protocols and support have enabled me to begin to reverse DECADES worth of damage. Christa has transformed more than just my health. She's made it possible for me to feel like the person I've always wanted to be, and I now have the energy to pursue my passion (wellness coaching). Thank you for everything, Christa.”

Erica L.

“It sounds so cliché, but Christa Orecchio and The Whole Journey program literally changed my life. After 40+ years, I finally learned how to eat properly and maintain my body weight while doing so – and without starving! I used to get stomach aches from most of the things I ate and had a lot of trouble getting really restful, regular sleep. Now I can eat a lot of the foods I used to avoid – and more – and still feel healthy and energetic. My sleep has improved tremendously as well. I learned the importance of putting quality, unmodified foods into my body and the bonus of it all is that I’m able to teach my 7 year old daughter how to eat properly starting now, not when she’s in her 40s.”

Carolyn B.

“I used to pop l-theanine like candy and other calming herbs – really relying on them to stay calm and manage anxiety and stress. I realized I hadn’t taken any of those things for weeks without a second thought!! I still have a long way to go, but I have come SO far with everything — diet, really living in a parasympathetic state for the first time in my life AND doing so consistently, and making huge strides in the emotional work. Experiencing really intense, but wonderfully positive and profound emotional and spiritual transformations.”

Lori T.

For years my cholesterol was high and I didn’t know why. I thought I was healthy since I regularly exercised and had, what I thought, was a good diet. I was monitoring my cholesterol with my doctor and cutting out bad foods and fats from my diet with little success at lowering my cholesterol. I started working with Christa (and The Whole Journey) and I learned what types of foods my body was sensitive to that caused my high cholesterol because they contributed to inflammation. Christa made changes to my diet that not only lowered my cholesterol but also guided me to much healthier food options. Nine months after I started working with Christa, my cholesterol levels (LDL and Total Cholesterol) are in normal ranges and I did it the natural way! The “tweaks” Christa made to my diet have increased my energy levels and I feel great! I even gave up coffee! My JOURNEY has just started! Thank you Christa for all of your wonderful healthy advice!

Ching L.

“Within a week of starting The Adrenal ReCode I had energy. I started sleeping, deeply. I learned how to eat for the rest of my life so my body would be in balance. My body started burning some fat instead of storing it. But not only did this process help me with nutrition, it helped me with life skills, growth and taught me how to put myself first when I need to. This has been one of the best things I’ve done for myself, my life, my relationship. I cannot possibly recommend this work enough – it is worth soooo much more than the cost"

Tessa

“Thank you for your Candida Cleanse e-program. I have severely suffered with Candida for 15+ years. I have done the anti-candida diet & the anti-fungal diet for 6 months each. Then I did the GAPS diet for 2 years, while taking herbal anti-fungals. For over a year, I took Diflucan weekly and then for 6 months took Diflucan monthly. I faithfully followed those diets, desperate for healing. I can't begin to explain all that I have done/tried to heal the Candida, yet….still suffered with Candida…..I was hesitant to spend the money and try your approach. I praise God; I decided to give your program a try. For the first time in 30 years, I am finally healed from my Candida. Today, after a mere 6 weeks, my ph is balanced and my saliva test is clear. I have never experienced this amount of healing ever! I am astonished. I could write pages….but no amount of words can express my gratitude for your cleanse. It really worked. You have blessed this lady more than you will ever understand. I truly can't convey my gratitude to you. I am overwhelmed! I hope someday I can meet you face to face….I would hug you! You are worth the money!"

Crystal N.

I grew up with my mom as a nutritionist, so I was picky when looking for a nutritionist that I felt was knowledgeable and who could actually teach me new things about health. Well, Christa Orecchio and The Whole Journey was the answer for me. Christa's new e-course is more than informative, is packed FULL of information, and has so much support for you along the way. What I really love is that I can keep the e-course forever…that means that if I missed something….no problem. I can always go back over it again and again…forever! I have great energy, I'm never hungry, and I feel amazing! For me this course is invaluable!”

Annie R.

“I wanted to share my biggest success from the ReCode! I joined the program to prepare my body for having a baby. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 5 months. This week, I just found out that I am pregnant for the first time!!! My body was finally able to relax so my reproductive system could work again:). I am forever grateful for this program!”

Amber L.

“I truly believe that Gut Thrive has not only allowed my body and mind to heal itself but has given me an immeasurable increase in quality of life and will extend my life in years if not decades. I have seen the most drastic improvement with weight loss, (40 lbs while in GT5!) decrease in headaches (migraines are virtually gone!), higher energy (no more exhaustion after simple tasks), improved GI tract, an overall increase in sense of well being, decrease in brain fog, and I can exercise again. Once you have accomplished Gut Thrive, you will feel different. You will not only feel healthier but you will have a sense of having “tools” in your “tool box” to stay healthy. I plan to take the techniques I have learned in Gut Thrive and use them for the rest of my life.”

Jason S.

“Our experience with THE WHOLE JOURNEY has been nothing but motivational and inspirational.  We have learned all the tools needed to get our family of five on the right road with taking charge of the foods we eat and the way we live. We couldn't thank you enough for guiding us through this transformation! The knowledge you provided I can now pass down to my kids and let healthy cycles begin! THANK YOU!
