Helping Individuals Heal Themselves Through Nutrition
In 1989, Karen’s 18-month-old daughter was poisoned with an organophosphate (household pesticide). Her daughter barely survived and the medical experts gave the prognosis that she would live only one year. Six months after the poisoning, it seemed that the medical experts were correct. Her liver and kidneys were beginning to fail. The physicians gave no hope, and they had no suggestions of a cure as they stated, “Her immune system is irreparably damaged, and medical science has no way of rebuilding one.”
Karen began her own research of alternatives. After extensive reading, and studying at the Washington Medical School Library in St. Louis, and researching many kinds of alternative literature, she decided to implement her own program to save her little girl’s life. Choosing to employ the alternative method of nutrition, she began to administer a plan for healing using the knowledge she had gained through her research. Much to the amazement of the doctors, her daughter began to improve.
Within six weeks, her daughter had made such improvement that there were no more measurable signs of distress. The only question remained if any permanent neural damage would be manifest as she grew older. Her daughter is now 31 years old, with no signs of permanent neural damage or any other damage.
When word spread that her daughter had recovered, many people began to contact Karen and ask for help with health problems that they had. Because Karen had no credentials or formal training in this field (see below for Karen’s other formal training), she enrolled in the American Academy of Nutrition to obtain her diploma in Comprehensive Nutrition. After completing the course in May of 1994, she formally established a private practice in nutrition counseling, where she has been able to help people with all manner of health problems. Karen has since earned her Masters degree in Biochemistry and now tours doing speaking engagements, and writes and records nutritional and biochemical literatures and eCourses.
