Our Holistic Approach

Our main objective is to find the root cause of our clients’ ailments and address them through nutrition and supplements. We apply two techniques:

Our Holistic Team

Kristi Acuña

BSNU Holistic Nutritionist and owner of HNC

Kristi Acuña was born with a severe case of psoriasis – an autoimmune disease that causes red, patchy skin from head to toe. Her childhood was filled with frequent visits to pediatricians, dermatologists, and alternative health care practitioners to help cure – or at least control – her psoriasis. Each doctor visit became one disappointment after another, as all the medical professionals focused on treating her symptoms rather than getting to the root cause of the problem –what she was putting into her body. Consequently, all attempts failed.
After years of dealing with this unsightly and often painful disease, combined with taunting from her peers and classmates, Kristi’s self-esteem plummeted. Embarrassed and frustrated, Kristi wondered if she’d ever have a normal life.

When Kristi was 19 years old, her mother, a Registered Nurse for 27 years, studied to become a Traditional Naturopath. She was able to uncover the root cause of Kristi’s psoriasis and introduced her to a line of whole food supplements called Standard Process. The supplements and her new individualized nutrition plan cleared the psoriasis and gave Kristi a level of confidence she had never before experienced.

Holistic Nutrition gave Kristi back her LIFE.
Fueled by her gratitude for Holistic Nutrition and Standard Process’ amazing products, plus her desire to give others the gift of life and good health she has experienced, Kristi earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Holistic Nutrition from Clayton College of Natural Health in Birmingham, Alabama. She’s been practicing Holistic Nutrition for over 15 years in Newport Beach, CA.

Kristi is a member of the International Foundation for Nutrition and Health (IFNH). Through her online counseling, Kristi makes full use of her expertise by working directly with her clients, no matter where they are located, to customize dietary programs and cleanses that help them achieve optimal health.

Shanna Butler

HHC Holistic Health Coach

Shanna Butler was born in Surf City, Huntington Beach, CA. After growing up eating the standard American diet, her body finally took its toll when she was seventeen. She began waking up with very swollen eyes, getting rashes, having very bad fatigue, and having stomach pains. None of her symptoms were getting better, only getting worse. She went to three doctors trying to get help on what could be the cause. Two of the doctors told her that her symptoms were all in her head and offered a prescription to Xanax. It wasn't until she got a third doctors opinion that she found out what was the cause of her symptoms. He ran an antibody test and it came back positive for Celiacs Disease.

Shanna completely changed her entire lifestyle. From dumping out all the food in her kitchen, to even dumping all the chemical filled toiletries she had been using on her body her entire life. She had found a love and passion for Nutrition and Holistic ways of healing. On top of eating a true whole foods diet, she had started to implement organic whole food supplements and herbs into her life for ways of immune support and healing. Shanna is now a board-certified Holistic Health Coach and Integrative Nutritionist through Integrative Nutrition and she has completed the Intermediate training of Nutrition Response Testing. She has been working with Standard Process and MediHerb for over four years and is working on her ACN (Advanced Clinical Nutritionist) program. Shanna is very excited to now be training at The Holistic Nutrition Center alongside Kristi Acuna to help improve the quality of life for each individual client.
