Life changing stories

Julie Marquardt

“Sleepless, Stomach Pain, Headaches… but now I finally feel like I know what’s going on in my body!”

“Before working with Kimber on my health journey, I was experiencing what is probably a bit typical in most menopausal American women.  I was tired, not sleeping well at, having a hard time falling asleep, and always waking several times a night and struggling to fall asleep again.  My sleep never felt deep or restorative. I was having horrible hot flashes day and night. I could not lose weight, no matter what I tried. My stomach hurt…a LOT! I had periodic migraines/headaches, some brain fog, sometimes felt a bit down (not my standard personality AT ALL). My digestive system clearly was in a constant state of defying me, like a teenager determined to do the opposite of what I wanted and knew was best! My muscles/bones ached and creaked. You know, standard middle age stuff. I knew Kimber many years and had watched her own journey to health and had seen her become a Functional Nutrition Practitioner, so I reached out.  I already trusted her and was looking forward to feeling better and enjoying life more.  

We started my journey and it was incredibly thorough and educational!  I feel like I finally know what’s going on inside me. It was like a took a college course and I was the subject of study. I loved it, loved my interaction with Kimber! We laughed and brainstormed. I explained things happening in my body, upon her request, that I thought I’d never explain – hence some of the laughter!  I felt like we traveled a journey of discover together and had become detectives solving the mystery of how my body was functioning and what to do to fix it. I followed her advice and did what she recommended and started feeling better as the journey went on. We talked very regularly, texting daily, meeting on the phone/zoom weekly, detailing how my body was functioning based on the changes we were making.  
Am I perfect with my choices? Not 100% but SOOOOO much better than I was! I keep working at it daily and am so much more equipped to make the right choices.  When I slip and don’t, my body lets me know and I am much more able to get back on track. I feel better than before working with Kimber and have heard that I look better than ever – less tired and worn out looking!  That’s always good to hear!
Bottom line, it was a life changing year for me – physically, mentally and emotionally. I have become so much more aware of what I’m eating, how I am treating myself and how my body choices will affect me, either negatively or positively.  So now I really think before I eat certain foods or make certain life choices. I have recommended her to several family and friends who are very happy they have chosen to work with Kimber too!  
I’m forever grateful to Kimber for this education and for her friendship! We have rekindled and old friendship and it’s grown into one I will always cherish and grow.”

“Brain Fog, Back Issues, Stiffness, Drainage, Lack of Energy, Low/no Libido… after a year I can honestly say that I feel over 90% better than when I first started! (Not tired, lost 20 pounds, more energy, and zero brain fog.)”

“Before I met Kimber I was Lost in a world of information, reading every book I could find and joining many support groups online to try and figure out what is wrong with me.
My best friend suggested I watch a Live video that Kimber was in to better understand an issue I was having. I contacted Kimber on the suggestion from Buddy that she could help me find a new pathway to my health.

How did I feel? Brain Fog, Ache back, Stiff muscles, drainage in my throat daily, lack of energy, low to no Libido. All around something was not right and I needed help sorting through my issues. I was also around 183 pounds.

When I first talked with Kimber for my Free consultation she explained everything to me and made me feel comfortable and confident she had many ideas and tests we were going to run to look at my gut health, blood work and allergies ect.

After many months working with Kimber and keep in mind I am one that does not take any medicine not even advil. She got me over my fear of taking vitamins and minerals to help my body detox from the sluggish liver and clear my body of toxins. Now it has been almost a year working with Kimber and I can say that I feel 90% better than when I first started. I am not as tired, have my energy back, no brain fog, stiff muscles are still around but way better than when I started. Also I lost 20lbs within the time frame working with Kimber. My Blood pressure is now normal range. My Libido is 50% better and still working on that as with everything this is a lifetime journey.

Being able to schedule a meeting with Kimber and having her be there to help me on my journey has been a life saver. My hope for the future and my health has been turned around thanks to Kimber.

I continue to work with Kimber as the world has changed and now more than ever Health is Wealth and we all need to make sure we have a healthy immune system to fight off the viruses in the world today.”

“Brain fog, exhaustion, chronic fatigue, bloating, constipation, depression, anxiety, inability to focus, edema, unexplained weight gain, you name it. I was desperate to find answers and hopeful that someone was out there who could help… I’m a little over 12 weeks into the program with Kimber and have so much more energy and all of my other symptoms have diminished. I know that as healing continues, the symptoms will continue to fade and I will continue to be and feel like a new woman.”

“Before, I was working with primary care and specialty doctors, trying to figure out what was wrong. They kept saying my numbers looked good, that I was healthy, and it was “just hormones and stress”. I was also working with a nutrition coach who was very focused on macros but not the actual food itself or how my body was responding to the food. And then I read a book about the leaky gut and it mentioned functional medicine practitioners. I was intrigued.

Before I met Kimber, I felt awful. Brain fog, exhaustion, chronic fatigue, bloating, constipation, depression, anxiety, inability to focus, edema, unexplained weight gain, you name it. I was desperate to find answers and hopeful that someone was out there who could help. I KNEW this wasn’t right.

When I first met Kimber, I felt seen and heard. She showed me so much kindness and compassion. She was knowledgeable and patient and I finally had real hope. I prayed she had availability for me and she did!

I’m a little over 12 weeks into the program with Kimber and have so much more energy and all of my other symptoms have diminished. I know that as healing continues, the symptoms will continue to fade and I will continue to be and feel like a new woman. I feel way more hopeful now. Kimber models such grace and love in our weekly meetings and has been a beautiful example of behaviors that I’m learning I can show myself too. There is never any judgment and I feel so comfortable talking about any topic.

My hope for health has been renewed and I have to say that this is about so much more than physical health. My mental and spiritual health has grown and healed so much during this journey too. And this is just the beginning!

Other things to share:
I really appreciate how Kimber goes through everything slowly and gently introduces new ideas, behaviors, routines, etc overtime. I was (am) at a point where I was ready to try ANYTHING and was (am) ready to do it all! She definitely helped me keep it simple and focus on one thing at a time. 😊 Sure it’s an investment to replace food, make up, cleaning supplies, and other products but it is all worth it to feel better not return to life “BK” (Before Kimber).
I’d also want people to know that there is hope. When you think you’ve tried everything, don’t despair. Functional Medicine is an amazing journey. Healing is hard work but it is SO worth it. I don’t even know how to describe how nice it is to feel like me again. I have a renewed spirit!”

“My energy is increasing and my pain is starting to reduce… I would not hesitate to recommend Kimber to be your healing partner.”

“I found Kimber on a Facebook group from a comment about a functional doctor who helped her gut issues. I have been working with Kimber for approximately 4 months and she has been encouraging and has held my hand on this journey. I am so grateful to share my healing journey with Kimber to get to my root causes of my conditions. My energy is increasing and pain is starting to reduce. My bowel function is improving. I look forward to further testing to uncover other root causes to unravel all of the layers. I am hopeful that my condition will continue to improve and I will be able to do things I have not been able to do for over 30 years. I would not hesitate to recommend Kimber to be your healing partner. Thank you Kimber.”

“I’m walking 10,000+ steps most days and I am 64 years old! Haven’t done that since 2018.”

“My name is Sheryl and I’m 64 years old. Since 2016 I’ve tried to clean up my diet and go as much chemical free in my home as I could. Not doing too bad but thought I could use some more insight into my health and hoped Kimber could help me. I started consulting with Kimber in July of 2020. I wasn’t feeling bad but not 100%. When I first spoke with Kimber, I felt very comfortable with her manner and her knowledge. Lately I’ve been feeling really good. I’m walking 10,000+ steps most days lately. Haven’t done that since 2018.”

“Before meeting Kimber I was miserable… now, I’ve lost 65 pounds and my health has improved tremendously. I feel nothing but HOPE!”

“Before meeting Kimber, I had been sick for many years and ultimately had to have my gallbladder removed. I was struggling with my health every day aMer the surgery, and felt scared that I would never feel well again. I was miserable. I felt scared and unsure of my what my future looked like in regards to my health.
I was feeling hopeless that things could ever change for me. I feared that I would always struggle and feel sick.
When I met Kimber she assured me that she could relate to how I was feeling and gave me great hope that I would feel better again. She walked me through the process, and was always available to lift me up and keep me going on my journey towards health.
I’m feeling like a new person since working with Kimber. I’ve lost 65 pounds and my health has improved tremendously. I feel nothing but HOPE now! The sky is the limit…
Kimber has a very kind approach that allowed me to take in new information without feeling scared or bullied, like some practitioners had done in the past. She truly cares and gives her heart to her clients. I feel so seen and valued under Kimber’s care.”

“My general doctors and dentists seems to more focused on providing me relief versus a long term solution of eliminating the pain is what Kimber is all about. She has been helping me do just that.”

“I had been suffering from a burning tongue sensation and had met with both dental experts as well as doctors and while they made recommendations for relief, none of the considered looking deeper into what might have caused or causing the feeling. I felt bad…many evenings sitting there sucking on ice cubes to find some relief.
I wasn’t even hopeful as doctors could not find a way to me relief…and nor were they focused on the cause. When Kimber and I met and I explained what was happening, history when it started etc, she immediately asked if I had a filing removed. It was in fact, that day after having a filling removed that the burning sensation began…..she asked a number of questions, around diet, digestion etc. BUT the one thing she asked that MBO other doctor asked “ have you been been tested for high mercury levels”. Her suspicion based on the timing of when the burning sensation set in, and the fact that I had a tooth filing removed, was that I might have been exposed to the mercury from the filing. No doctor or dentists ever asked the question or thought to test for it. She tested for it and among other digestive tract issues found, she was able to identify and I indeed had more than 2X the amount of Mercury in my body.
While I am feeling better and I have seen improvements, I have been taking supplements for 6 months and while the process is slower than I would like, I am committed to staying on the detoxifying supplements to see if I can get the levels down or eliminated. Better but not 100%. I can definitely say that my hope for health has been renewed and I have seen other benefits to the supplements to my overall health and feeling not just for the burning tongue sensation. The process has allowed me to be more educated on foods that cause inflammation, that I need digestive supplements, as my body wasn’t producing enough enzymes and Lipo acid to properly breakdown my food. When I take the supplements, I do not feel as bloated after eating, I do not seem to have any acid reflux and generally feel much better and now that my gut health has improved. Finally, searching for the “why” versus just treating the pain for relief is my ultimate goal. My general doctors and dentists seems to more focused on providing me relief versus a long term solution of eliminating the pain is what Kimber is all about.”

“In three months of dedications to her protocol, I was healed from all of my symptoms. (Blood pressure extremely high, heart rate was high at resting state, acid reflex uncontrollable, stomach pains, Neuropathy, and diarrhea. Lost 15 to 20 pounds.) She is a God send. Kimber was in Constant contact with me and she coached me through my healing. Where doctors prescribe medication for symptoms, Kimber heals you from the inside out and gets to the source of the problem.”

“My adventure began in April 2020. I had been to pretty much every specialist I could think of reaching out for help. No one could Find anything wrong with me I was told it was my nerves and was prescribed anxiety medication. After taking meds my symptoms were getting worse. My blood pressure extremely high, heart rate was high at resting state, acid reflex uncontrollable, stomach pains, Neuropathy, and diarrhea. Lost 15 to 20 pounds. Joined Facebook for support group for answers and was referred to Kimber Krosschell, Functional Practitioner. I was down and depressed and was given up on healing. She was very positive and Inspirational. She listened to me and didn’t think I was crazy but immediately began to help. We did a GI Mapping and hormonal test to get to the root of my problems. In three months of dedications to her protocol, I was healed from all of my symptoms. She is a God send. Kimber was in Constant contact with me and she coached me through my healing. Where doctors prescribe medication for symptoms, Kimber heals you from the inside out and gets to the source of the problem. There is definitely Hope for Health. Thank Kimber for educating me and making a difference.”

“I came to Kimber with terrible acne and no answers from Dr.’s other than medication. Due to the side effects of the medication I was inable  to start a family while on them. Kimber introduced me to things I had never thought of, and the acne began to subside!”

“Before beginning to work with Kimber, I had exhausted all of my other options. I came to Kimber with terrible acne and no answers from Dr.’s other than medication. Due to the side effects of the medication and the inability to start a family while on them I tried various other things such as changing our laundry detergent, washing our bed more often, getting monthly facials – the list goes on. I was feeling very hopeless and like I had exhausted all of my options when coming to Kimber. After meeting with Kimber and trying some new things I did not try before, my acne began to subside. I am so grateful for Kimber and the hope she gave me for the future. I am just beginning my health journey with Lifetime Remedy, but I am already seeing results and have a restored hope for my future health.”

“Simply put, Kimber saved my life!”

I was searching desperately for help with my health.  I Had experienced a horrific attack of Intestinal Covid which would not let go and landed me in the ER eight times and hospitalized for four days.  I missed five months of work; this horrible virus would not turn me loose! 

Scared… like I might surely die.  The pain Covid caused in my gut was excruciating!  I was so weak I could barely walk across the floor.  I couldn’t eat anything and was getting weaker by the day.  My husband said he was not going to let me lay there and die.  He was so afraid for me.  He took me to the ER where I was told everything was fine, and they sent me home! To say it was frustrating would be a gross understatement. 

After so many doctors couldn’t help me I honestly, wasn’t very hopeful. 

I knew after our first zoom appointment that there was something different about Kimber.  She WAS going to help me; I was certain of that!  After talking with her, I was so excited because I had no doubt, she would lead me to wellness.

Today, I am like a different person.  It has now been right at 10 months working with her and it would take me writing a book to express the gratitude I have for her!   Simply put, she saved my life! 

My hope for health has been renewed!

If you are struggling with your health, don’t wait any longer… call Kimber!  It will be the best decision you’ll ever make!  She is a Godly woman that will care for you as if you were her own family.  She has a brilliant mind and will never steer you wrong.  Call her and get on the road to wellness!  I wish you could see me now!

“In 4 short months, with the help of Kimber, we were able to naturally support my body to produce and improve my overall hormonal and ovary health and reverse my polycystic ovaries to healthy, egg-producing ovaries.”

My journey started in November of 2020 in preparation and planning of wanting to get pregnant. Knowing my body was going through some intense hormonal challenges, I reached out to Kimber to help support and provide insight into reregulating and balancing my hormones.

After identifying that both my ovaries were ‘unhealthy’ and polycystic, Kimber and I worked together to make lifestyle changes to combat the hormonal challenges that influenced my ovary health. Those changes included toxin-free living, necessary diet changes, and appropriate supplements to aid in naturally and wholistically reregulating my system.

Less than 4-months later, at the beginning of March 2021, I was informed that one of my ovaries had made drastic improvements and was creating healthy, mature eggs – the possibility of falling pregnant was in sight! Similarly, the other ovary was close behind it and showing progress. The doctor said, “Whatever you are doing to improve your ovary and hormonal health, keep doing it; it’s working!”. In 4 short months, with the help of Kimber, we were able to naturally support my body to produce and improve my overall hormonal and ovary health and reverse my polycystic ovaries to healthy, egg-producing ovaries. 

By April 2021, my husband and I had fallen pregnant with our first child, and we are happily nearing the third trimester of our healthy pregnancy. 

Before working with Kimber, I felt overwhelmed and hopeless. Quickly, she made what I felt seemed impossible possible, and we had so much fun along the way. She instilled hope and found positives in the negatives. She helped me naturally improve my overall well-being, which influenced my life beyond the hormonal challenges I was facing. She has continued to provide insight during my pregnancy, and together we have created a plan for post-partum and getting my body back on track after the birth of our child. 

Thank you, Kimber, for all you have done. For making my pregnancy possible and for continuing to instill in me a renewed hope for health!

“I felt hopeless and lost — like there would never be an end to the pain I was experiencing.”

Before meeting Kimber, I was in a really, hard place. I went to so many doctors trying to find answers about my deteriorating health, but I couldn’t find help from anyone. I felt hopeless and lost — as there would never be an end to the pain I was experiencing.

When I first met Kimber, I finally felt like someone cared about me as a person… I wasn’t just a list of symptoms anymore. She coached me through a wellness protocol and lifestyle change and taught me about health along the way.

After working with Kimber, I finally feel back to my old self. I have more confidence, energy, and a much greater outlook on life. I can confidently say that I feel happy and healthy once again. Thank you, Kimber, for changing my life!

“Kimber quickly had several ideas on how to tackle the challenges I was facing, she really took the time to listen and understand me, she is always considerate of my concerns.”

“I was on a digestive downhill spiral with endless allergy symptoms controlling my life, coping each day by covering my symptoms with medications and getting only minor relief.  I was feeling hopeless after exhausting several alternative options with no results. I met with Kimber and instantly felt that she understood me.  Kimber quickly had several ideas on how to tackle the challenges I was facing, she really took the time to listen and understand me, she is always considerate of my concerns.  Kimber has given me hope for healing.  I have a long journey ahead, but with her leading the way, I am very hopeful for the future.”

“I had been suffering for months with non-stop nausea and stomach issues. After my gallbladder surgery in August, I expected this to be totally gone. Well…it totally wasn’t…. Today, I’m back to 100%. I’ve come so far in this past 12 months. My hope for health has been renewed and I know that Kimber was an important part of that healing.”

“I found Kimber and Lifetime Remedy through a gallbladder support group on Facebook in August of 2020. I had been suffering for months with non-stop nausea and stomach issues. After my gallbladder surgery in August, I expected this to be totally gone. Well…it totally wasn’t. The nausea and GI issues continued. I contacted Kimber because I was not getting much improvement from the prescriptions that I had been given.  I felt so lost and didn’t know where to turn. Fortunately, Kimber was there and came on board to walk with me through this time. I added her to my support group of doctors, friends, and family and she was a huge part of my healing. Kimber is a great listener and has a way of reassuring you of your path through the healing. She was supportive and was always there if I needed her through email or zoom meetings. God certainly does send special angels to be with you through tough times. I felt my time with Kimber was a gift. Today, I’m back to 100%. I’ve come so far in this past 12 months. My hope for health has been renewed and I know that Kimber was an important part of that healing.”

Gently and with genuine care, Kimber started me on a new path of deep healing and revitalization in order to gain wholesome, deep, and lasting health in not only body and mind but heart as well.

“Kimber, I just don’t have any energy, but I am doing everything right. Why?” In my mind, I was doing everything right, yet I was only trying to solve problems in my body and mind with superficial remedies and strategies. Since the first meeting with Kimber, however, I knew her approach would be different. Gently and with genuine care, Kimber started me on a new path of deep healing and revitalization in order to gain wholesome, deep, and lasting health in not only body and mind but heart as well. In the moment, change is hard to see, however, looking back I can see how the person I am today is a very different person to the person I was 1 year ago when I started meeting with Kimber. From allergies that have lessened to new ways of coping with life’s stressors, I have experienced healing in all areas of life and have a new vision and hope for how to continue growing from strength to strength. I am so thankful for her wisdom, care, and constant support in the good days and bad days as she faithfully walked the journey with me. I am still on this journey of healing, growing, and learning just as we all are. However, because of the encouragement and empowerment I received, I have a renewed hope of living a healthy, balanced, and joyous life to the full.

“I found myself continually in the bathroom with constant watery stools… hopeless and depressed “

At the age of 29 I was sick! I found myself continually in the bathroom with constant watery stools… hopeless and depressed. Kimber, carefully explained that my body had been through a lot after my gallbladder surgery, but that there was hope for healing. She let me know that together we will overcome these issues and that I could plan to live and feel healthier than ever before 

Six months later, I was in a brand-new place. My mindset and stomach were working together and I was enjoying life, again. Yes, it was a process, but it was well worth it!

I am beyond thankful for where my health is today. Kimber is one of a kind. Believing is seeing and Kimber made me a believer. She took extra steps by keeping in touch about how I was doing. Kimber goes the extra mile when others don’t!

“I feel renewed with my health and have so much more energy.”

Kimber truly loves what she does. She makes people feel like they are heard and she has the knowledge to help. She’s a great listener and has a talent of putting people at ease.

I have felt so much better now that I’ve worked with Kimber, knowing that I’m doing what’s best for my body.

I feel renewed with my health and have so much more energy. I am so thankful.

Kimber has the knowledge, desire and personality to help anyone who is tired of being tired and feeling unwell. She has become not only a trusted help, but a friend.

“I can’t say enough about how helpful it’s been to have Kimber’s support and expertise as I’ve been trying to find healthy.”

I knew I was overweight and having a tough time rectifying that. It was her knowledge/expertise that was able to point to some issues with my blood sugar that I had never have suspected. She knew what we needed to monitor as we systematically started me on a plan to detoxify my system.

Her knowledge of quality resources and supplements was invaluable. She was able to get me on a protocol that allowed me to detox in ways I wouldn’t have been able to without her support.

Kimber not only addressed the physical support through supplements and protocol but met my need for a better understanding of the “why.” Throughout the process, she helped me understand the reason for tests, what results mean, and how we could combat the pathogens at work.

It is easier to continue doing hard things when I understand why, so this time to educate me about what was going on in my body was so valuable. She understands the body as a whole system and took the time not only to provide whole system answers but to be there for me and coach me through emotional ups and downs as well.

Kimber always made sure that I had tools and a plan moving forward for how I could take care of myself so that I could get/stay on the path to health and wellness. I’m grateful for her service and expertise and compassion.

Let me help you get your own Testimony!
