Dr. Kristina Lewis is a naturopathic physician in practice with her husband, Dr. Eric Lewis, in Asheville, North Carolina. When her husband discovered he had hereditary hemochromatosis and founded the website HemochromatosisHelp.com, she became very involved in researching, writing, and teaching about this condition both as a health-care practitioner and as a concerned wife.
After the publication of Dr. Eric Lewis’s book, Holistic Health for Hemochromatosis, it became clear that a companion guide with recipes and cooking instruction was what the readers of HemochromatosisHelp.com needed next. As someone who naturally loves to cook and who finds inventing tasty and healthy recipes a fun challenge, Dr. Kristina Lewis decided to take on the challenge of creating a recipe guide for hemochromatosis from a holistic perspective.
