Karen Potter | Holistic Health Coach and Wellness Educator
In my early twenties I was searching for answers for health, weight management and how to live and age healthfully. I grew up on a standard American Diet and for most of my life I had no problems with weight or health, but as I approached my twenties, the weight began to creep up. I found myself 20+ pounds overweight and feeling tired a lot.
I began researching “diets” and tried many of the popular ones around; high protein, low carb, no-fat, calorie counting, carb counting…. and others, without much luck and still struggling to lose weight. I was introduced to eating whole, real food by a friend and began a journey I am still on today. I learned about eating a healthy whole foods as a lifestyle, not a diet. I began consuming real, whole foods and learned how to cook whole grains, and prepare dishes with real food, avoiding processed foods.
Not only did I lose weight, but I began to feel healthier. This was now a lifestyle I felt I could keep for a lifetime, and my family and my own health have benefited tremendously. All my children were raised eating real food and none of them have had any weight issues. I personally lost the extra 20 pounds and after having 4 children, I have maintained that healthy weight through each stage of my life. Now, 30+ years later I still have a healthy weight (it hasn’t changed) and I have been able to take control of my own health. I rarely get sick, or even get a cold…and have not been to a doctor for any health problems at all.
My passion is to teach and equip others to have the success I had! I want to help others to be healthy, maintain a healthy weight, have good energy and focus, and have great skin and vibrant health! With degenerative diseases on the rise- heart disease, cancer and diabetes as well as a rising obesity epidemic, people are feeling sick, confused and uncertain of where to turn and what to do to prevent and reverse the risks of chronic illness. As Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
My approach to helping others is twofold: Through education and implementation of healthy strategies and life skills I help my clients understand their unique bio-individuality and to learn how eating real food can dramatically change their health. I teach group workshops and I have 1 on 1 wellness programs to help each individual reach their desired health goals.
I have an undergraduate degree in Business Management; but over the past 30 years I have passionately pursued my learning, and understanding of nutrition through Nutrition Conferences and Workshops, and personal implementation of healthy diet and lifestyle practices. I studied nutrition at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in NYC where I became certified as a Holistic Health Coach and I am currently completing my Masters in Health and Nutrition Education from Hawthorn University. I am also a Certified Wellness Educator. I work at ABC Family Chiropractic &Wellness as nutrition coach and wellness educator. I am also a Chapter Leader for the Weston A Price Foundation in Burlington, MA., helping individuals locate local sources of real, nutrient dense food. I want to share my knowledge with you so that you can improve your health, no matter where you are right now, and to empower you to embark on your journey of “living & aging youthfully”!
