THE GATHERING HEALTH STORY

Welcome to Gathering Health! My name is Kristin Retterath and I'm a wife, homeschool Momma x3, Certified Nutrition and Health Coach and Business Mentor! This space was created as a place for me to store all of my recipes, knowledge and resources as I have battled with Celiac and other food allergies. However, my site was hacked in 2021 and I lost everything and I'm just not getting around to rebuilding it. Stay tuned for some blog updates on all of our life, but for now, here's a little background! 

In 2008, after having my oldest, I struggled with constant hives reactions, massive stomach aches and severe acne. I felt like I couldn't eat anything without my body freaking out. I went in for testing and found out my body pretty much hates gluten, corn & dairy (amongst all sorts of other environmental allergies). So I went on the path of going gluten and dairy free. 

I found it to be incredibly difficult at the time, things were obviously much less available than they are now which meant I had to create a lot of recipes on my own. Over the course of a few years I realized that just going gluten free wasn't enough and I needed to try eating more of a whole food Paleo lifestyle. It was then that I finally got my health back and started to feel more like myself. 

Overcoming my own health struggles led me to create Gathering Health as a spot to not only document but share what I've learned in hopes it will save someone else going through something similar the headache and stress I felt figuring it out on my own. I'm an open book and always willing to share my struggles in hopes that it will help even just one person. 

Over the past two years I've partnered with The Wellness Company to help families not only improve their health but lesson their toxin load, shop America made and really transform their homes into a healthier space. I'm currently leading a team of incredible women (growing by the day) as we embark on a mission to impact 1,000 families across the globe. It's been my most rewarding work to date (outside of raising 3 incredible kiddos). Inspiring women to think bigger, believe in themselves and take action big enough to change their life lights my soul on fire. If you're needing some of that in your life, you're in the right place! 

Thanks so much for being here. It truly is an honor that you chose to read all the way through this and for that I'm incredibly grateful. 

XOXO--Kristin
