The Nutrition Doctor health clinic is a cross-disciplinary team of doctors and nutritionist Christina Santini, all specializing in detecting the root cause of disease through advanced biochemical testing and infrared scanning. This enables us to prevent disease before symptoms manifest and also to supertune your body's performance, so you feel and look great in the skin you are in. We like to consider it a superhero checkup - cos who doesn't want to be batman. We treat following issues: Allergies + Cancer + Diabetes + Eating disorders + Heart disease + Men's health + Women's hormones and Fertility + Weight and Metabolism disorders.
Grab a tea or espresso and Christina Santini will be right out to get you.
I will be doing a first-of-its-kind full day workshop, geared to give you specific strategies to pinpoint underlying causes and how to self-help tools to treat those areas yourself. This is a unique opportunity especially for those of you not able to come in for full check-ups to get my help in pinpointing cause of your cancer and gain tools to target those areas. We will mainly be focusing on natural medicine and how-to-use-food-as-medicine, but not just in regards to cancer foods, but more specifically in regards to causes of cancer and how we can rid the body of those cancer-triggering compounds.
For those of you in Copenhagen, I am doing a talk on The biology of Our Hunger switch - smart method for lasting weight loss. You can sign up for this talk and read more - click here (Danish only). A list of all events can be seen by clicking here - reply to this email of you want to book me for an event either in Los Angeles or Copenhagen. I will be in Los Angeles throughout April and have a pop-up office in LA 2 x yearly open for advanced lab testing, thermography, heavy-metal and mineral checkups along with tailored personalized nutrition programs based on your biochemical blueprint and health goals.

Did you know that curcumin inhibits phase 1 detoxification? Now what exactly does this mean in terms of optimal guidelines on how to take curcumin? Well, let’s start from the beginning. There are two major detoxification pathways inside the liver cells, which are called the Phase 1 and Phase 2 detoxification pathways. Phase 1 detox pathway neutralizes some toxins while converting others to forms that can then be processed by Phase 2. If Phase 2 detox is slow due to certain drugs, genetic factors or nutrient deficiency, then these intermediary forms can build up and cause damage in your body. Genetic factors can include a mutation in the MTHFR gene, which affects approx. 40% of us, making those of us with this gene mutation more vulnerable to toxic buildup. Anyway, by eating curcumin we inhibit phase 1 detox, which might be a good idea in certain instances, where we have not yet optimized phase 2 detoxification and thus do not want a buildup of toxic intermediaries hanging around especially during chemotherapy. But for optimal detoxification long-term, we should not take turmeric every day.
When we look at brittle bones, it almost never has to do with lack of dietary calcium, yet that is what people are told, when they go for a bone scan (Dexa scan). You cannot scan people’s bones and tell from an image that their bones are weak because they lack dietary calcium.
This month I am featured in ELLE magazine (Danish march month edition) on how I got into biological medicine and advanced lab testing. Some of you might know I started out working for doctors in Copenhagen and thereafter moved to New York to buy lots of painfully ridiculous stilettos (because that’s what you do in NY) and work for celebrity-doctor Dr. Braverman. Thereafter, I moved on to California, where I opened my first clinic. Education-wise I started out with a basic degree in Human Nutrition in Copenhagen and later on got certified in Switzerland in Biological Medicine, in Bioresonance in Germany, in Medical Thermography along with Clinical lab diagnostics and Ayurveda in California, along with well, the California-mandatory yoga teacher certificate. Because it’s like, if you go to LA, everyone and their grandma is a mix of life coach/yoga teacher/actor/barista/instagram model/waitress/surfer, so you might as well go with the flow.
These days I have a gorgeous clinic location in Copenhagen along with a pop-up office in Venice, LA. All labs and scans are evaluated by my American doctor team, which guarantees you a cross-disciplinary team approach when you walk through the doors.
Anyway, you can find a collection of prints and articles I have been featured in right here. I will be in Los Angeles throughout April - reply to this email to make your appointment in advance.
So while I have my main office in Copenhagen these days, I am in Venice, Los Angeles annually to see clients - dates of my next LA visit are: April 5th - April 20th 2019. I will be seeing clients from 10AM - 4PM. You can reply to this email to book your appointment now. If you are a new client and want to know more about what a top-to-toe health check-up entails click here. This year has been super busy and super good for me. I have done a ton of stuff, attended more ongoing education in the fields of biofeedback in Germany and also clinical courses in heavy metals and detoxification methods which has enhanced my own skills in how to best treat various health issues. I have written for various fashion and health magazines and talked at the Danish Cancer Conference in November. I have had significant better treatment results with cancer and autoimmune disorders the last couple years, because new laboratory testing has been developed, which has enabled us to pinpoint the cause of these devastating diseases. That means we can finally start understanding WHY people are sick and treat that - instead of getting lost in the ripple-down effects.
One of the largest studies to date on the keto diet and breast cancer recently came out and showed clearly: NO you should not forego fruit, potatoes, legumes, and whole grains in order to load up on fat and more fat on the current keto-craze, if you want to have the best survival rate when it comes to breast cancer. Now why might that be?
I can’t stand the word detox frankly. Yet I use it more than any other word in my practice these days. It is one of the core things I do today, because the lab testing I do is repeatedly showing that most issues you guys are coming in with are due to blockages in the system due to various accumulated toxins. Most symptoms can be traced back to different toxins that are interfering with the body’s ability to function and repair normally. Sidenote: For those of you who were at my talk in Øksnehallen in Copenhagen Sunday 30th of September I am attaching handouts for the talk as promised - click here to download the notes (DANISH only).
