A to Zinc Nutrition helps people conquer pain and health obstacles so they can live the life they dream of.

The stories that people shared about their health journeys and goals were complex and compounding. She began to modify recommendations and create nutrition plans specific to individuals. She soon realized that this approach was best for all the patients she met! As patients consistently started feeling better and succeeding at reaching their health goals, Kari got more excited about helping people.

Kari’s Gone Crackers
