Hello there – I'm Karmen, the founder of Cultivate: Mind-Body Nutrition. I am a rebel by nature and radically challenge the status quo when it comes to our conventional medical model and nutritional recommendations. I take a scholar-practitioner approach to nutrition by blending the murky waters of research and clinical practice.
I lead my practice and client-care with empathy and compassion, honoring the individual and their unique health experiences and journey. I help break down personal barriers and nutritional dogma, coach the client on how to reconnect with their innate intuition, teach tangible tools to create a synergy between the mind and the body and assist in helping the client find true healing (however that looks for them) in their body.
