 ... so you'll look better, feel better, focus better, perform better, and gain the energy you need to live the life you deserve!

As an unlicensed practitioner, I do not diagnose or treat disease.  Instead, I look at blood chemistries and various other laboratory tests from a nutritional perspective.  These tests offer opportunities to see imbalances before they become serious conditions.  If I ever suspect any medical condition, I immediately refer my clients to the appropriate licensed practitioners.

Whether you need a complete dietary overhaul or a little fine-tuning, Real Food Therapy is here to help you ...   

At Real Food Therapy, Karen uses a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to find the underlying factors affecting your overall health.  With Karen's guidance and foundational approach, you will address diet, stress, food sensitivities, digestion, nutritional status, and detoxification capacity, while working towards an overall improvement in your energy level, weight, immunity, hormonal balance, emotions, cardiovascular status, toxic load, and more.

Karen designs the most appropriate Real Food diet for you by working with a number of labs to gain a greater understanding of your health for more targeted and effective therapies.  If any medical condition is suspected, Karen will immediately refer you to the appropriate licensed practitioner.  If you are already working with a licensed practitioner, you can rest assured that Karen will be a valuable addition to your health and wellness team.
