  • " I started the Estrogel last Sunday and used the progesterone cream a few days.  Started the oral progesterone Wednesday night and I slept amazing!   I had trouble waking up as I felt so relaxed. Lol.

    Its only been a week and I feel soooo much better.  I've noticed that I am not as tired and don't even get a slump in the afternoon. My thinking is clearer.  My digestion is better.  My complexion is clearer.  Even my hair looks healthier.  I'm not sure if all that is as a result of the hormones but I am so very grateful.  My libido is also slowly coming back to life. I immediately felt the tissues of my vagina becoming thicker and I am back to being able to make my own Lubrication. Incredible! 

    I can't believe I've waited this long to make those changes.  I am never going back!!! Thank you so much for taking me as a client Karen  You have changed my life in so many positive ways with only an hour consultation.  I wish all doctors who treat women would be mandated to listen to your podcast!!  You are amazing!  Thank you"

  • Five Steps to Your Full Body Transformation!

    We focus on five key areas that are essential to lose weight, balancing and optimizing your hormones, reversing the diseases of aging, and helping you thrive:

    • Testing

      When it comes to your hormones, my rule is Test Don’t Guess!  I am a Certified Hormone specialist trained in functional testing to investigate your hormonal status. Majority of our lab tests can be covered by your provincial medical plan.

    • Weight Loss

      My team and I consist of Certified Nutrition Coaches, Hormone Specialists, Anti-Aging Doctors, and Personal Trainers all specializing in midlife nutrition & weight loss. Balanced hormones, increased energy, and balanced moods start with eating the right nutrition for your midlife body.  We will take you through my proven weight loss formula the Hormone & Metabolic Reset meal plan and show you how to tailor it to meet your specific nutritional & hormonal needs.

      *We offer cutting edge weight loss peptides and medication prescriptions if needed and desired to get you the best results in the safest and most effective way possible.


    Mindset is so important to success that it has to be part of your transformation.  A favorite quote of mine from Henry Ford goes: “Whether you think you can or think you can’t—you’re right.”

    This means that if you think you can change, then you will change, but if you think you cannot, then you are stuck in place. Change can only happen with a growth mindset, but change can also be hard. In your 4-month coaching transformation, I will help you to identify the limiting beliefs that could be holding you back from true transformation.


      Quality of sleep and managing your stress are a must when it comes to balancing hormones and optimizing weight loss. We’ll help you pinpoint areas in your life that need improving and recommend targeted supplemental support to address deficiencies and imbalances.

    • Hormone Replacement Therapy

      Hormone Replacement Therapy can be confusing and scary for women. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on the safety and use of hormone replacement therapy. Most doctors DO NOT know the most up-to-date science on this topic, let alone understand the art of using it.

      I have aligned myself with some of the best HRT providers in the business! We will educate you on all of the benefits and risks, as well as what your many options are including safe, physician hormone replacement therapy including but not limited to estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, thyroid medication, and cutting edge weight loss medications.

      Our licensed healthcare providers have had extensive training in the use of bioidentical hormone therapy thyroid treatment.  If you are already working with a provider, we can advise you on how to discuss HRT with your primary caregiver and coach you every step of the way. We are open to working with your provider to help you get the most out of your HRT.

      Every woman is different, and the goal will be to find your optimal hormone replacement levels, delivery form, and dosage until you are completely symptom-free!

    You will learn:

    • How to use natural hormones safely for maximum effect.
    • The differences between patented and chemicalized hormonal substitutes (what all of the confusing news reports are all about) and natural hormones.
    • What forms of natural hormones are the best for you in your situation- pills, gels, drops, shots or creams.
    • The possible responses you will feel from each hormone.
    • How to monitor your responses and adjust your dosage for maximum results.
    • How to work with your physician, if needed, to monitor your progress without objective medical tests.

  • I am in my 5th year post menopausal and I am hypothyroid. Not only is Karen full of great information, she is personable, loving and a cheerleader. Karen has gotten me back on track, has helped me figure out what hormones I need to survive menopause and has gotten my thyroid working again. I have lost over 30 pounds since February and I LOVE her meal plans. Karen goes over and beyond to help and I am beyond thrilled to have her on my journey.

    “I felt like I had lost who I was. I was in a fog, I could not remember anything, but the words to 70’s music, lol…. I felt fat and unloved like I had no platform in my life. I felt like what I was doing in life did not matter. Reaching out to Karen was the best thing that I have done for myself in a long time. From the natural medicine to lift my brain fog to the bio identical hormone’s that she had put me on. I felt that once Karen and I worked on my mindset everything else fell into place. I feel like I have my life back. I am happy with who I am and what I am doing in my life. Thank you so much Karen for the continuing help. You will probably never know what a true blessing you have been in my life. I appreciate you. This has truly been worth every penny. This was one of the best things that I have ever done for my body.” Always Susan Figueroa

  • Working with Karen was amazing! Karen has a down to earth approach that made me feel comfortable from the very beginning. Her knowledge and expertise about female hormones reassured me that I had definitely found the right person to work with. She gave me the confidence that I needed to begin hormone replacement therapy. She also gave me guidance about meal planning and how to eat right for my hormones. Karen’s practical, no-nonsense approach made applying these changes to my daily life much easier than I thought it would be. Karen places an emphasis on emotional health as well, which is so important for women but often takes a backseat. She genuinely cares about her clients. If you are struggling in your own health journey, I highly recommend working with Karen!

    • Perimenopause.

      Perimenopause can begin at any time typically between your late 30s to early 40s and symptoms can last anywhere from a few years to 10+ years. Shifts in hormone levels during this time affect women both physically and psychologically, causing changes including mood swings, insomnia, vaginal dryness, night sweats, hot flashes, and weight gain. Through our private coaching sessions and proven protocols, my goal is to help you alleviate most if not all symptoms of perimenopause to make this transition as pleasant as possible!

    • Post Menopause

    Menopause is the point when a woman no longer has menstrual periods for at least 12 months. Post-menopause is the stage after menopause. There are several conditions that you could be at a higher risk of after menopause. During this stage, menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes, may ease for many women. However, some women continue to experience menopausal symptoms for a decade or longer after the menopause transition. As a result of a lower level of estrogen, postmenopausal women are at increased risk for several health conditions, such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Please note it is never too late to get HELP!

    “I came to Karen feeling at the absolute end of my tether and nowhere to go. I was suffering lost libido, weight loss resistance, memory loss, anxiety, extended PMS with terrible anger and confusion and loss of focus and concentration at work which was undermining my performance in a job that I love.

    By mid 2021 I was somewhat beside myself having tried extended fasting, super low calorie days, the longevity fasting diet (thinking this would heal my insides) and landed in a cycle of over restriction and hormonal disturbance I had no idea how to get out of. When it started affecting my work and personal life as well, with the rage and memory loss coming into it I really didn’t know what to do.

    Then I heard Karen talking on one of Marty Kendall’s podcast recordings, and I knew I had a possible way out. I explored around and read reviews and listened to Karen’s own material and after a while of dithering, I negotiated with my husband to take the plunge and dive into the full 3 month hormonal reset with personalized meal plans, on tap Q&A and three one on one sessions. It was perfect. Within that three months we had got to the bottom of the main barriers to my wellbeing, sorted out my over restriction, and nailed my hormone balance, both on a dietary front (how I was eating that impacted my hormones), and peri-menopause.

    We had to try a few things and learn from them, including learning I really don’t respond well to topical progesterone and had to stop that right away – discovering I’m best without nightshades and egg and dairy, but that life goes on without them 🙂 And finding the right balance of herbals and other supplements to take care of my early peri-menopausal symptoms.

    Outcome – I have my weight loss code, I got back into my favorite skinny jeans and goal work pants, have a waist most 30 year olds would kill for let alone 47 year olds 🙂 and am back on vibe with my husband and work. I no longer have rage and confusion the week and a half ahead of my menses, and I feel satisfied and energized always. I am love love loving being back into strength training, and am a powerhouse on the football field as a result, as well as being out of a knee brace I thought I’d be wearing for the rest of my footballing life. What a result! Thanks so much for all you do. Your empathetic ear, your care and attention and experience. You turned my year around and I can’t wait to keep reaping the benefits of it all. I will see you again when my next tweaks are required, I am sure – until then huge love and thanks from the whole family! Kids included 🙂 xxx Caitlin

My doctors just said "Well if it's not too bad, we don't want to mess with your hormones--it's menopause so it will go away sometime." I was referred to Karen from a friend and after signing up, learning about what hormones actually control in your body, and taking the DUTCH test I discovered YES, MY HORMONES WERE WHACK!! After getting on the supplements that Karen recommended my hot flashes stopped within a week! When following Karen's diet recommendations I lost weight around my middle, my stomach issues were gone, significant decrease of pain in my hand joints and my face no longer looked puffy. I learned so much about hormones and now when I hear of other women struggling I always tell them about Karen's podcasts and the things I learned! I tell them "Get your hormones checked!" Karen is great to talk with and so encouraging and knowledgeable about what she recommends. It really opened my eyes to my aging body and what it needs to be the best version of myself!
