And now that you're here, let me tell you a bit about myself.
I am Karen Carbone, R.N., B.Sc., N.H.D. The alphabet soup behind my name can be a little confusing, so here's a brief synopsis of my education, training, and experience. I graduated from nursing school in California in 1976. After graduation, I worked for 10 years as a nurse in acute care hospitals in California. I found this work to be both demanding and rewarding. My career then led me to a variety of positions within the medical field, including management and executive positions.
In 1996, I moved to Whidbey Island to work as a medical consultant and manager of a pharmacy.
During my work in the mainstream medical community, I became aware of the shortcomings of our present healthcare system. I decided to expand my training to include a more natural type of healing and focus on disease prevention and holistic health. For this reason, I decided to return to formal education to study natural health.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Natural Health Studies in 2006 and completed a Doctor of Natural Health degree in 2008.
Because of my experience in both traditional and alternative systems of medicine and healthcare I can work with you to determine which therapy will likely provide the best result with any given health situation. It is my sincere desire to help people attain their best possible state of health and thereby prevent many of the unnecessary health conditions that are prevalent today.
Helping You Create and Enjoy a Life of Optimal Health
This is the principle by which I conduct my business. The health of your body is largely up to you. I desire to share my knowledge with you as you make your wellness choices. I teach health....I do not treat disease. The process of healing is extremely complex and involves more than evaluating symptoms, diagnosing a disease, and prescribing treatment. As a traditionally trained naturopath I understand the importance of the emotional and spiritual elements upon health and incorporate those areas into a holistic approach.
I look forward to working with you as you create wellness and wholeness in your health.
