As a holistic nutritionist I specialize in hormone balancing, autoimmune disorders, gluten intolerance and other food sensitivities, diabetes, weight management, high blood pressure and cholesterol. I utilize saliva testing for hormones, blood testing with ALCAT for food sensitivities, and blood testing through Spectracell for thyroid, nutritional micronutrient panels, Cardio metabolic, pre diabetes, LPP, telomere, and MTHR.
I also do blood chemistry analysis. If you've ever been told that your blood work has come back normal and there is "nothing wrong," then that's where blood chemistry analysis comes in. I often find things that conventional practitioners miss in blood work.

I didn't know nutritionists like this existed! For well over a year I haven't felt well. I was getting ready to meet with my doc when Karen suggested I send over last year's blood test results to her. Karen did a blood chemistry analysis on everything through this cool software. The results showed potential problem areas and Karen equipped me with questions to ask my doc and tests to request. Karen also analyzed my most recent blood tests and put the data side by side to analyze trends. Based on the test results, Karen also provided me with Vitamin B and D supplements as my Vit D level was quite low (which the doc wouldn't have tested for if it were not for Karen!)

I found Karen online about six months ago when I was at my wit's end in dealing with PCOS. At that time, I thought that my symptoms would only be managed through Western medicine, which only masks the problem. I didn't want to go on HRT either - being that I am nearly 26, I wasn't sure how this would affect me longterm. My first meeting with Karen was very uplifting and I learned a lot in that short amount of time. Through her vast knowledge of nutrition and even cosmetic ingredients, she was able to narrow down a nutrition plan that is simple to follow and we are filling in where I lack elsewhere with vitamins and herbal supplements. It only took about two months for my body to get on board with this treatment, and I am happy to report that my body has been functioning for the past four consecutive months as if my PCOS doesn't exist. I feel fantastic, and it is such a relief to feel "normal" again. I recommend anyone who is dealing with hormonal imbalances to go to Karen for an all-natural treatment plan. It is a priceless solution. Thank you, Karen.
