About This Expert
Karen specializes in incorporating HTMA (Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis) into her programs to give each client a truly personalized approach to bettering their health and wellness. Hair contains all the minerals present in the body including nutritional minerals and toxic heavy metals. The mineral content of hair provides a wealth of information as to your nutritional status and how efficiently your body is working. As well as being easily collected in the comfort of your own home, a very small, properly obtained hair sample can show the accumulation of toxic metals and your mineral status over a long period of time as opposed to blood testing which gives the information at the moment the blood is taken. Urine sampling gives the information on what the body is excreting but not necessarily what it is absorbing or storing.
Karen began her wellness journey after her husband was diagnosed with cancer and she with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease. She utilized more than 20 years of research and experience to help herself and her husband heal and eventually become asymptomatic from their conditions. She continues to share her knowledge and coach others through her business Go Healthy With Karen ®.

“I love to make it easy and fun for my clients to become a healthier version of themselves. When I hear that someone slept better, or had energy to play with their kids instead of taking a nap, or felt happier and less anxious, I know I have truly found my passion!”
