The words “Thank you” just feel so very, very inadequate for all that you’ve done & continue to do for me. Your knowledge, your understanding, your compassion and your never ending kindness! These are but a few of the wonderful gifts that you so generously share with those of us whom you strive to help regain our health! Thank you, thank you, thank you – I am so grateful that fate and God brought you into my life! The world is so lucky to have people like you in it! You are a Gift and a Blessing to all that know you!
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Chris Bjorndal since 2001. Her passion and dedication to the art and practice of mind-body healing is inspiring. Dr. Chris applies a unique integrated orthomolecular and lifestyle medicine approach to optimize mental health. In her lectures, she speaks from the heart and courageously shares her personal healing journey to enhance the lives of others. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Chris for lectures and to those seeking personalized care for mental health and healing. – Dr. Sharon Gurm
