I had been trying to get pregnant for 6 years and had been to many doctors but never a nutritionist. Lucky for me I found an exceptional one! I came to Christa with a hard case of many years of accumulated toxins and trauma, including high lead levels. Although my extensive history is daunting to say the least, Christa did not shy away and took my case with care, knowledge and commitment. We only had 4 months to work with so Christa pulled out all the stops and put me on an extensive detox program at the same time as a prenatal protocol to help me reach my goal. It was not easy but she stuck with me every step of the way. And guess what? Yep! I got pregnant and everything is going great!! Outside of her knowledge, Christa has a care and an intuition that really makes her unique and very effective. She is a special person and offers a whole solution that gets to the root of what is going on so your body can find its own balance and harmony.

Working with Christa has been inspirational. The knowledge and support that she has shared during this journey has allowed me to focus on aspects such as my nutrition, supplement support, mindfulness to prepare mentally, physically, and emotionally for the birth of our baby. I am now aware of environmental impacts such as chlorine, fluoride and pesticides and have implemented changes to clean up our family’s lifestyle. I am forever grateful to Christa and her hard working team for supporting me through this process.

Louise Hanson

Christa helped me change my whole life! It is because of her that we were able to find direction to learn how to live the healthiest lives possible. I came to Christa when doctors couldn’t give me answers. She listened and looked to find the “root” cause – and found it! She taught me how to use food as medicine and I have since healed from chronic constipation, a parasite, low energy, adrenal fatigue and emotional struggles and for this I am forever grateful! Above all Christa have given me the tools to regain my fertility after having months without periods after coming off of birth control. I cannot thank her enough!

Hayley Trokey

My husband and I tried for 4 years to conceive with no luck. We tried many things and went to many doctor appointments with no success or real reason why we couldn’t conceive. They just told me that I have unexplained infertility. I had to take matters into my own hands and do some research and found Christa and The Whole Journey.
When I learned about functional lab testing, I realized there were other possible causes of infertility like food sensitivities, pathogenic infections, heavy metal toxicity, liver congestion, under-active thyroid and much more, that my doctor would just dismiss.
I did some testing and quickly found some healing opportunities in my labs. I began making dietary changes (went gluten-free and dairy-free), included lots of hormone-friendly healthy fats into my diet in large amounts, started eating thyroid-boosting foods as well as avoiding thyroid-deteriorating foods. I also began a pathogen cleanse to eradicate a bacterial overgrowth in my gut. Afterwards I began to work on healing my leaky gut with specific foods and supplements for a few weeks.
My very next cycle, I got pregnant. After 4 years. And it was as easy as that. I now have a beautiful, healthy little girl. My heart just oozes with love for that little human being that we created. We are blessed.

Jennifer Lannon

I began my journey as a mother at a very young age. It wasn’t until I turned 30 that things started to change. We wanted one more child and it seemed that it just wasn’t going to happen. I had multiple miscarriages, one after the other. My doctor thought it was just my body changing. But I couldn’t accept going from having a healthy reproductive system to one with the inability to conceive in a matter or 2 years.

I knew I wasn’t taking the best possible care of my body (like I should) and thought maybe I could change that. I found Christa through a friend on Facebook and was hooked! I watched so many of her videos and read everything I could on her website, realizing I could heal my own body!

I started with her Candida Cleanse. I changed the way I thought about my food and focused on healing my body from the inside. I started feeling a change almost instantly and got pregnant about 6 months after starting my journey to heal myself. Not only has my body changed, but more importantly, my mind changed! Our bodies are so amazing and can truly take a lot of neglect. Thanks to Christa, I’ve stopped neglecting my beautiful body and started FEEDING it!

Christina Anderson

In January of 2014, my husband and I started trying for a child. I was 29 years old and my husband was 35 and neither of us had ever made a baby before. We had no idea whether we were going to get pregnant right away or if we would be one of those couples who struggled with infertility. From listening to people like Christa, I knew accumulation of contaminants from our food and our environment could affect our health and our ability to conceive. This is why I made it a point to tweak certain things in my lifestyle to aid in our endeavor:
Switched more of our food from conventional to organic,
Signed up for a CSA subscription with a certified-organic farmer to give us the most nutrients without the pesticides,
Upped my healthy fat intake (like coconut oil and avocados) to promote hormone balance and
Switched out my cheap and highly synthetic skin and haircare products for more natural and lower EWG rated products.
Three months later after three at-home tests and a doctor’s visit, we found out we were pregnant! So exciting!

Amy Lanci

After struggling for over 5 years to conceive and having multiple attempts at expensive fertility treatments for “unexplained infertility”, a friend recommended we work with Christa at The Whole Journey. Christa taught us how to eat right and use food as medicine. She ran panels to test for food allergies, medical conditions, etc. (far more than our fertility doctor ever did!). At 33 years old, after a very quick and easy labor, I gave birth to our beautiful baby boy Grayson. He is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. While our struggle to get pregnant was tough, he was absolutely worth the wait!

Erin and Jon Napoli

I just gave birth to my second child this past Valentines Day. Her name is Ruby and her brother Orion is almost two years old. I am turning 41 on May 21st and was so grateful to be able to conceive naturally and easily.


Release the fear about age and time. Dissolve the fear around
birth defects. Women age 35-40 have a 99.9% chance
of having a healthy baby.


The Natural Way

Hi, I’m Christa Oreccio, clinical and holistic nutritionist. When my private practice had taken a turn to successfully help women in their late 30’s and early 40’s conceive naturally, I knew I needed to share my knowledge. With the help of classical homeopath and labor doula, Willow Buckley, and 4 years of research we were able to write this for you!

We couldn’t be happier that you found this book and truly hope it gives you everything you need to move forward on your fertility and pregnancy journey.

How to Conceive Naturally and Have a Healthy Pregnancy is truly a breath of fresh air that is sorely needed by women today. The fertility industry has convinced millions that they won't be able to have a baby without assisted reproductive technologies-a belief that, in and of itself, can decrease one's ability to conceive naturally. But there is another way-nature's way. Safe, natural, effective. And it's all right here.

Struggles with fertility are at an all-time high. Studies have shown that processed foods and environmental toxins have inhibited the natural opportunity of both men and women to a degree that could plausibly threaten our species in the coming decades. Christa Orecchio and Willow Buckley have created the most coherent plan I have seen to date that will allow couples to use simple foods and at-home steps to take control of their fertility. They also give them effective strategies that will help them both with the new child and to assure their baby’s lasting health.

When it comes to fertility, there are crucial facts that doctors don’t share with you which are vital to your future childbearing. I call it the fertility gap. The fertility gap is largely unknown and unacknowledged in mainstream medicine, and few women have access to the secrets that could boost your fertility naturally. Until now. Whether you are considering the possibility of a baby in the near future, or you simply want to keep your options open, or you’re a veteran of the fertility wars, this book has the food-based remedies you most need.

This is the best book that I have ever read about fertility and pregnancy, and I have read a LOT! What an amazing resource for our future mamas!!! I wish I had had this resource before having my first baby because we could have avoided years of gut dysfunction and doctors. Although the title of the book says that it is for women over 30, this book is for everyone who is interested in a healthy pregnancy and baby!

– Megan

After spending 5 years listening to doctors tell us nothing but keep trying and maybe next time it will work we found Christa. Not only did we learn how to eat healthy, but we ended up with the greatest gift; a child! Each day I look at my beautiful boy and think of how this joy entered my life because someone took the time to give us the information necessary to conceive naturally. If you are tired of the same answers then try something new and you will be thankful you did.

This is good for women who just want to be healthy in general – not just for those trying to conceive. There is no other book like it. It goes through every stage of pregnancy, as well as preconception, and tells you what is happening as well as what nutrients your body needs at that time. Basically this gives you the recipe to create a super baby! Many common issues are addressed, including infertility. Also, great recipes!
