Living well with: Dr Christy Garner

We caught up with holistic chiropractor Dr. Christy Garner over green juice in her kitchen – the place where all the magic happens. Complete with a full line of tinctures, jars filled with rare tonic herbs, and fresh-picked produce from her garden, her kitchen could be where health enthusiasts die and go to heaven. Christy has managed to create a haven amidst the busy Los Angeles city noise, where the sounds of chanting monks ring in the background, and gemstones and Buddhist sculptures adorn every corner and niche.

Her glowing physique, and peaceful energy make it clear that she is certainly living well, which is why we wanted to know the ins and outs of what makes it all possible. Find out what’s on her plate, in her Vitamix and on her mind…
