Event Overview

Stress is a part of life (hellooooo holidays, family gatherings, money woes, and endless to-do lists!). Fortunately, your body is designed to be resilient when supported with proper nourishment.

Join Dr. Jacqueline Thomas, ND and The Food Therapist, Christa Bitner, MS, CN for an exploration of food, supplements, and lifestyle choices for healing and preventing against the negative impacts of stress. Create your personalized plan for navigating the holiday season with ease and vitality, as well as a long-term plan for increasing stress resilience.  

About our guest presenter: Jacqueline Thomas received her Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University, Kenmore Campus, in June 2014. She currently holds medical licenses in Kansas and Colorado, where she is held to each state's unique naturopathic practitioner laws and regulations. Jacqueline has had a seemingly arduous journey through the last few years - mentally, physically, and soulfully - that has sculpted her passion as a holistic healthcare provider. In her younger years Jacqueline had a voracious appetite for adventure and new experiences, and as she's gotten older this curiosity has turned inward, to herself, her practice of medicine, and her appreciation for simply being alive. Jacqueline wakes up each day and believes that her ability to practice medicine isn't just restricted to appointments, but can be integrated into everything she does, where she strives to make her life and work seamless. Dr. Jacqueline's passions outside of medicine are abundant, but she is anchored deeply to her close friends and family; she also loves to write poetry, paint, meditate, travel, explore new foods, discover new artists and musicians, and drink wine with a good book in her hands.
