As an RN with a background in Critical Care and Pastoral Care Ministry, Karen has seen first hand the devastation of disease and poor dietary habits that have many people taking medications because of preventable diseases. It wasn’t until she suffered with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for over 30 years and then was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2011, that she began her own personal journey of challenging conventional medicine regarding processed foods vs. Food as Medicine.
She returned to school to study nutrition and learned that excess sugar, gluten, and dairy was contributing to her illnesses.
It was then that she changed her diet, lost weight and learned that our bodies can heal themselves when we treat it well with proper whole foods from the earth.
Karen wrote a book, “Lose the Sugar, You’re Sweet Enough “ She also gives seminars and teaches healthy eating. She has done quarterly cooking shows that play on the TV’s at Mercy Hospital as an educational tool for the patients.
Karen values religion and has volunteered through her church as a Hospital Coordinator Praying for the sick and has done educational talks on treating the body as a temple.
In the past she has enjoyed and participated in the Pastoral Ministry Program at Roswell Cancer Institute and volunteered for the American Heart Association for over 17 years.
