Welcome to my website!  This Intro page will tell you a little about who I am and what I'm up to in the world!

My name is Karen Voelkening-Behegan.  I'm a mother of 2, and a health and wellness entrepreneur, nutritional therapy practitioner, geographer, linguist, amateur singer, and nature lover.

Besides nutritional therapy services, here's what else I offer:


Real Food Education & Activism

I am the founding leader of the Pasadena CA Chapter of the Weston A. Price Foundation, a non-profit organization devoted to education and activism in food, farming, and the healing arts. You may have found me through my interview with Hilda Labrada Gore on the Wise Traditions podcast in honor of my chapter’s 100th meeting.  To learn more about our chapter, please visit the chapter website.  Tune in to my interview with Hilda here.  If you're interested in starting or building your own chapter, please read my Practical Tips  for Building a Sustainable Chapter.  To learn more, sign up for my newsletter by contacting me here.


Personal Fitness

I’m currently doing Pilates and Personal Training while working on my CPT (Certified Personal Trainer certification) with the National Academy of Sports Medicine!  Good nutrition is the foundation of health and happiness, especially when supported by a lifestyle that includes regular exercise, restful sleep, and a healthy mind-body-spirit connection!  To learn more, sign up for my newsletter by contacting me here.


App Development

As a labor of love, I have assembled a team to help me develop an App designed to address Food Sensitivities while promoting Sustainable Agriculture and World Peace! If you can't even imagine what that would be and you'd like to learn more or get involved, please sign up for my newsletter by contacting me here.


Personal Care Products

Most personal care products on the market today are loaded with toxic substances that absorb directly into the bloodstream in minutes.  Regular exposure to these chemicals may have a measurable impact on your health and contribute to a wide variety of health problems over time.  The best choice is to use high-quality 100% natural or homemade products, like the ones recommended by Dr. Louisa Williams in her Best Bets list.  If those aren't an option for you, or you'd like to try some reasonably-priced products that are safer than what you can get at the average drug store, then I would suggest the pure, safe and beneficial products by Arbonne  that are botanically-based, endocrine-disruptor-free, and Certified Gluten-free, Soy-free, GMO-free, Kosher, Cruelty-free, and Vegan, all in recyclable containers with carbon-neutral shipping. To learn more about what Arbonne has to offer, look no further than right here!
