Chris Oswald, CNS, DC

Have you ever seen that guy running on the side of the road in the middle of winter with icicles hanging off his beard? Well, that very well could have been me. I approach life with a zest to live it to the fullest and wish to share my dedication with anyone who seeks my help. While I can pick through the details of you health with the best of them, I have developed a rare ability to prioritize the vast amount of information we have all collected regarding our health while never losing sight of your primary goals. I view everyone through a holistic lens and over the last decade have learned that addressing priorities in the proper order is just as important as choosing the right treatment.

If I wasn't working to help others pursue their personal health goals, I would likely working in data analytics and finance with an MBA in a corner office. From a young age, I knew that I was meant to help those around me. Growing up with a mother who is a nurse resulted in me running towards a life of healing others for as long as I can remember. My path started with a focus on athletics and performance in the pursuit of a degree in sports science at Northern Michigan University which was immediately followed up with an entrance to graduate school at Northwestern Health Sciences University. It was here that I first realized the foundational importance of nutrition and activity in the maintenance of health. As my curiosity drove me to more exploration I realized that I jumped in the rabbit hole of functional medicine in the treatment of chronic disease.

Thanks to some amazing mentors along the way I have had the great opportunity to come out the other side with an awareness of the complexities of chronic illness and the discipline of performance. I love the details, but realize the important of the big picture and how they interact with one another. This seemingly odd combination positions me to be a powerful guide as you navigate your way through the Kata Method.
