Holistic Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

Hi, I'm Karla Sanchez, the heart and soul behind Earthy Krave. I was born in Jalisco, Mexico, and raised in Detroit, Michigan. As a Holistic Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, wife, and new mom, I'm deeply committed to guiding others on their path to holistic health and healing for the mind, body, and soul.

With a certification as a Holistic Integrative Nutrition Coach from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition earned in July 2021, I've continued my education with additional certifications through the Women's Health Nutrition Academy for Nutrition for Breastfeeding, Nutrition for Maternal Mental Health, and Postpartum Recovery & Nutrient Repletion. This continuous learning reflects my dedication to offering comprehensive support tailored to women's health.

In the Earthy Krave community, you'll discover recipes infused with a healthier twist, wellness lifestyle tips, and a selection of my favorite products. It's a space where holistic well-being is not just a concept but a way of life. Explore, learn, and consider joining me on a transformative health journey through my personalized 1:1 health coaching program. Welcome to the Earthy Krave community!

How It Started

In short, I worked in the medical field as a maternal psychotherapist and received conventional training. It was my career experience and the challenges in my health journey that motivated me to become a Holistic Integrative Nutrition Health Coach. Growing up in Southwest Detroit and primarily working with the Hispanic population, I began noticing that people's health issues were worsening rather than improving.

I started questioning everything—why and how people get sick only to be sent out the door with more prescriptions after a 15-minute visit. This questioning led me to the realization of a broken "health care" system, one that merely manages symptoms without addressing the true root cause of health issues. I was astonished when I read the statistic that only 12% of the population is metabolically healthy. This means that 1 in 2 Americans has a chronic health condition linked to poor diet and lifestyle habits. It ignited a sense of purpose in me to take proactive steps and focus on preventative health instead.

The Meaning Behind Earthy Krave

The inspiration for the name Earthy Krave stems from the realization that everything the Earth provides, from nourishing foods to the wonders of nature, embodies elements we naturally crave as human beings to thrive. It signifies a connection to real food, genuine community, and the wealth of offerings found within the Earth's natural abundance. Earthy Krave encapsulates the essence of these cravings, guiding you on a holistic journey to reclaim your health and embody your highest self through lifestyle and nutrition.

Taking a bio-individual holistic approach and incorporating various healing modalities is key to achieving thriving health and wellness. This journey involves a process of unlearning and relearning, defining what true health means to you. It's an inner transformation. Your metabolic health, hormones, gut, cognition, digestion, skin, hair, energy, restorative sleep, thyroid, cycle, emotional release, and spiritual well-being have often been neglected in favor of quick, trending fixes like fasting, calorie counting, detoxes, cleanses, diets, energy drinks, supplements, and the latest fitness industry trends. It's time to break free from the misconception that being externally fit equates to optimal internal health and fulfillment. If you've ever found reassurance in normal conventional lab results, yet still feel that something is amiss, you're not alone. This journey is about rediscovering the interconnected elements of your well-being and paving the way for a more authentic, vibrant, and fulfilling life.

This Platform & My Mission

This platform is meant to complement your health journey and not substitute for medical advice. It serves as a space to provide informational and educational support for you and your loved ones. I am on a mission to inspire and help women like you reclaim their health and embody their highest selves through lifestyle and nutrition.

I hope you understand that investing in your health is the most deserving and important gift you can give yourself and your loved ones.
