About Karen Dickson

Karen Dickson, a native of Virginia, graduated from the University of Virginia School of Nursing and
specialized in the care of adults and children in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, surgical intensive
care, and recovery room (PACU) for twenty years. During this time she encountered a host of medical
conditions and observed how patients of all types responded to modern medical practices. She came to
the conclusion that there was something missing in patient diagnosis and treatment.

After moving to a rural area, she worked with an MD who specialized in homeopathic, chelation, and
nutritional therapy and witnessed the balancing and healing power of foods and natural medicines. She
observed ill and often desperate patients that the conventional medical community was unable to help
become healthier as these treatments helped to reverse diseases. Inspired by this experience, she
studied introductory homeopathy at the National Center for Homeopathy.

Her studies led her to interact with health care workers practicing non-traditional medicine; she
discovered that she herself had health problems that were later found to be related to diet. It was then
that she began to do more research on the healing power of food. After deciding to pursue nutritional
healing, she received a Master of Science in Herbal Medicine and Nutritional Consultation and a
Naturopathic Doctor degree from Back to Health and Health Research Institute. In 2013, she completed
the Nutritional Therapy Practitioner program and began practicing as a nutritional therapist.
Karen is married with two daughters, two wonderful sons-in-law, and two very active grandsons. Her
entire family has benefitted from her recommendations for a healthy lifestyle based on a wholesome
diet. She lives and works in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
