Jill Crista, ND

Bio

As an experienced PANDAS/PANS parent and treating physician, Dr. Jill Crista recognizes that as much as she wishes it to be true, there's no magic pill to help these suffering kids. It takes a village, and a village worth of tools. The struggle these kids face inspired her to understand the science behind their strange and peculiar symptoms, and develop treatment approaches that work. Moved by the dire stories and pleas from fellow parents, she committed to sharing her unique insight, which builds “in the trenches” experience and research findings onto the foundation of her naturopathic training and principles.
