Why From Scratch?

Supporting Your Health Journey

Often, we find when people begin their Wellness Way journey, they feel left-out of events as they either bring their own food, choose not to participate, or simply eat something that will cause them to not feel well.  

We’ve been there. This book is the result of Dr. Alex and Christy’s journeys as they have also helped and supported friends, family, and patients walk their own health journeys. No two people are the same on the inside, and we realize that it can be challenging to come up with flavorful meals that the whole family can enjoy. 

Who we are

About the Authors

Two moms who understand the challenges and joys of a healthy lifestyle.

Christy Flynn

Food, and how I’ve related to it, has changed throughout my life. Growing up, I remember my mom and grandma’s kitchen with fresh, whole foods from the garden and farm, and the scent of fresh-baked rolls on the table. Food and life were simpler, plentiful, and nourishing. As a mother, teaching my daughters this lifestyle is an act of love.

Dr. Alex Fennelly, DC

As a Wellness Way doctor, I knew there were additional stresses for which the body needed the support healthy nutrition provides. When I started my Wellness Way journey, I discovered I had 52 food allergies that were contributing to some significant health challenges. Now having a family of my own, I felt the nudge in my heart to recreate my favorite childhood meals and have my son tag along for the journey.

Where it all began

What is The Wellness Way?

Simply, The Wellness Way is a network of health restoration clinics that think and act differently to solve the health challenges others can’t.  

We believe the body has the ability to and wants to heal when given proper support. One of the most powerful ways we do that is through the foods we consume, and those we choose not to. You may have heard the old adage, “Let food be thy medicine,” but not many people have heard the next part of that statement, “and medicine be thy food.” What if by supporting your body with what you need through nutrient-dense food sources could restore healing and proper function? We believe it can! We do health differently!
