Short Bio

Dr. Christine Sauer, MD ND (Ger), grew up in Germany, raised two sons and became a physician.

She worked in her ex-husband's family and naturopathic practice and then took a second residency in dermatology, naturopathy, allergology and phlebology. After being board-certified for these specialties she then opened her own practice in Germany, which grew rapidly.

Due to personal physical, followed by mental illness, she had to give up and sell her medical practice in Germany.

After her ex-husband's death by suicide her sons and herself came to Halifax, NS in 1997.

She went through a deep health crisis and after partially recovering started actively searching for the newest and best nutrition, lifestyle, medical etc. information. She eventually aligned her life with all her knowledge, experience and - utilizing help from other health professionals - became healthy again.
She then, after studying and taking multiple courses, (find most of her qualifications and German licenses below) decided to open her own Brain and Mental Health Coaching Business to share her knowledge and experience and her unique view of conventional, alternative, functional and integrative medicine as well as her skills and knowledge in personal and character development, inspiration, enthusiasm and love with other people to help them re-build their Health from the ground up.

She then further educated herself, became a certified Brain and Mental Health Coach, Professional and Licensed Brain Trainer (by Dr. Daniel Amen MD), joined Dr. Amen's Teaching Team and is now working to help others overcome their challenges, optimize their Brain Health with her unique Power Up Your Brain - System . Dr. Christine is a prolific writer, published author, course creator, radio and podcast host, speaker and a dedicated team leader, researcher and educator/teacher.
Her private hobbies are cooking, gardening and her dog.

Case Study - Carl - Stomach

A gentleman, let’s call him Carl, came to me after had had had surgery for “diverticulitis” . He wanted to know how to eat better to avoid recurrence and transition from the postoperative low-fiber-diet to a regular diet. We did a complete assessment and enrolled him in my health advisory program, which provided him with access to specialized testing as well as unlimited email and regular phone support as well as supplement and diet recommendations.

We discovered a food sensitivity at the root of his recurrent stomach issues. After transitioning to his ideal diet he feels well and knows that, if he ever has any issues or questions, where to go for the answers!

Case Study - Lucy - dementia

A 64 year old lady, let’s call her Lucy, consulted me because there were many people with Alzheimer’s dementia in her family. She wanted to know if there are ways to prevent her from falling prey to this devastating illness.

I educated her about the science, that yes, there are ways to reduce the risk of getting it, and how to go about it. We did a complete assessment and she entered in an ongoing personal health advisory program where I provided her with all the resources, research, customized information, genetic and lab testing and more that helped her asses her own risk, optimize her own brain health and answered all her questions.

She is doing well and no longer scared to face the future.

Case Story - Adam - Cancer

A client, let’s call him Adam for privacy purposes, age 46, had a low-grade fever and stomach pains. He also bruised easily. His physician wasn’t sure what was going on and suggested a wait and see approach. It didn’t get better, and Adam went to the emergency room. In a CT scan they found a big abscess in this abdomen. His white blood cells were high, too, nothing unusual in the case of an abscess.

But after several rounds of antibiotics Adam still had low-grade fevers although the abscess seemed to have disappeared.

His wife brought me a copy of his latest bloodwork, and I saw at once that not only were his white blood cells elevated, but also had an unusual distribution, not fitting with “just” an abscess.

I suggested a bone marrow biopsy to rule out leukemia.

It took a further 3 weeks in the hospital before finally his doctors gave in to his wife’s urges and did a bone marrow biopsy (although they said it would probably be unnecessary…).

The result: Adult leukemia, highly treatable with simple medications.

He is fine now….

Case Study - Emma-Fatigue

A lady, let’s call her Emma, age 72, felt chronically tired. She went to her family doctor who told her it was her diabetes (that was treated with insulin, leading to constant weight gain…). And she needed to live with it. He did a blood test and told Emma it was “all normal”

She came to me for a Turn-Around-Assessment and Health Advisory . After reviewing her complete history and all previous lab tests and other tests available, it was obvious that her thyroid was low and she was anemic (low in blood). It showed clearly in her bloodwork. She wondered why the family doctor didn’t say anything about it… I tested her for iodine deficiency (she was deficient) and for stomach acid (it was low). She also was iron- and B12-deficient. I recommended nutritional changes as well as a customized supplement plan. She felt better soon and started to eat better for her type.

I highly recommend Dr. Christine if you are having any health issues...she will help you figure them out and find a way to make them better.

Case Study - John - Health Plan

Another of my clients, John, is working at age 72 as a successful engineer. He entered my health advisory program to maintain his health and energy for life and always have one person to hold the strings of his healthcare and wellness together.

I reviewed all previous lab tests, other test results, his travel history and suggested a few extra tests to help assess his health risks.

From there I advised him as per necessary immunizations for his travels as well as supplements to take, a customized diet suitable for his age, person and lifestyle and more. He is very happy to know that health advice is just an email or phone call away!

Case Study - Jane - Autoimmune

A 45 year old woman, let’s call her Jane, had been diagnosed with M. Crohn and rheumatoid arthritis, both autoimmune disorders.

She asked for my health advisory

After our detailed assessment I suggested a food sensitivity test. In spite of strong medications and even biologics and cortisone pills she still had to run to the washroom 5-10 times dayily as well was in constant pain with her joints. She tested positive for 50 different foods. We sorted out what was significant in several consultations. She also turned out to be deficient in magnesium and Vitamin D as well as Trace minerals.

After an elimination diet and customized supplementation she felt slowly better and better and in collaboration with her family doctor was able to get off the prednisone. After targeted supplementation and healing her gut microbiome and more she was able to tolerate many of the foods she had to avoid in the beginning. She is still taking biologics (injections), but is no longer chained to the toilet and is pain-free most days.

I am so glad I did the Turn-Around-Assessment with Dr. Christine! After years of feeling crappy all day, fatigued, depressed and being unable to sleep and in pain, I finally knew step by step what to do. After following her plan and with her support and accountability for a few months I feel like a new person – energized, happy and 20 years younger! This process truly changed my life.”

“I’ve had the distinct pleasure of working with Dr. Christine and I have to tell you: My life is so different since I met her. She helped me find out what all my food issues were, what my allergies were and has helped me develop a plan to eating properly. I have Crohn’s disease along with some other autoimmune disorders and the pain was just getting worse and worse every day. I was having trouble walking, my joints were sore, my belly was constantly bloated and it turned out that it‘s not all Crohn’s disease. In fact, I am allergic to many different food items and since we have eliminated them, I feel great! I have energy, my stomach is not bloated, in fact, I kind of keep losing weight, which is a great thing and I owe it all to Dr. Christine. She has just made my life wonderful and she can help you, too. I guarantee it!”

Case Study - Bill - Fibromyalgia...

A 55-year old man, let’s call him Bill, had been diagnosed at age 11 with “Fibromyalgia”. He was constantly in pain. Over the years his pain got worse and he felt that it was “in his bones”. His family doctor felt it was “all in his head”. As time went on, Bill felt worse and worse and at some point had to give up work. He had trouble getting the disability pension he needed to live.

He consulted me for advice: I did our assessment and noted that he walked hunched over. I asked him if he had recently had an x-ray. He said, not in over 20 years. He had asked repeatedly for an x-ray but the doctor had refused it as “not necessary”. I offered to go with him to his next doctor’s appointment and explained to his family doctor what was going on. He got his x-ray. Eventually he got more x-rays and it was discovered that the poor man was suffering from Bone spurs all over his body which were pinching his nerves and muscles…. No one knows how long that had been the case. He got his disability and is managing his pain with medication, diet, supplements and moderate exercise.

Case Study - Trevor - Mental Health

A 35-year old man, let’s call him Trevor, consulted me about his anxiety. He was scared of touching anything. I provided him with information and supported him in working with his psychotherapist to avoid medication. In addition we addressed his diet and did a urine test to see if he had nutritional deficiencies or metabolic abnormalities that would contribute to his anxiety. As part of my health advisory we provided him with the resources and a customized meal plan a well as a supplement plan and recommendation to improve his condition.
