Karen's Philosophy on Nutrition and Health
"The human body is the universe in miniature. That which cannot be found in the body is not to be found in nature. Hence the philosopher's formula that the universe within reflects the universe without. It follows therefore that if our knowledge of our body could be perfect, we would know the universe."
"I believe there is a subtle magnetism in nature, which, if we unconsciously yeild to it, will direct us aright."
-Henry David Thoreau
"If we could give every individual the right amount of nurishment and exercise, not too little and not too much, we would have found the safest way to health."
I believe that good nutrition is the foundation for all good health. My lifelong enthusiasm for nutrition, cooking and wellness go back as far as I can remember.
It has been my pleasure for many years to educate individuals and groups about the healing powers of food to both nourish and nurture the body and soul.
I have spent many years within this field formally gathering knowledge regarding the most current and ancient research on how to achieve optimal wellness through nutrition, mind body approaches, and proper supplementation. It is my commitment to truth that keeps me seeking for more knowledge. No one person has the magic bullet when it comes to health and I believe that staying open to new discoveries both internally and externally is where the "answers" will evolve.
My goal when working with clients is to EMPOWER them through education and example. I practice what I preach and find that essential to understanding where my clients are at. I have had my own struggles with health and wellness throughout the years, and it is these struggles that I now see as the gifts that allow me to compassionately help others.
I view my role as a "health coach" in aiding individuals and families to find their own path. Freedom surrounding food choices, feeling of empowerment regarding what choices to make and knowing that they are eating optimally for their own unique physiology is what I intend to convey to each client that I work with.
