Lesson Two of the Nutrition and Brain Health Masterclass.

Probiotics are critical part of healing from Lyme and were a part of every traditional diet. Like most nutrition, we’ve stopped eating the original food and take it in pill form instead. Lesson Number Two with Karen Diggs can help you get started simply and easily creating your own probiotics by fermenting. Don’t be intimidated, Karen makes it easy to get started. Karen is a Certified Nutrition Consultant & Therapeutic Chef and inventor of the Kraut Source.

After graduating from the California Culinary Academy, Karen got on a jet and flew off to Hong Kong. There, she worked as a chef for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, and also helped to open two eateries in that magnificent city of 7 million people (crowded into 426 square miles).

In 2004, while washing dishes in her kitchen, Karen had an epiphany! The epiphany went something like this: “Wow, maybe it’s good to combine cooking with nutrition?!” After all, didn’t someone from long ago say ” Let food by thy medicine and medicine by thy food”? (It was Hippocrates who said that, by the way.)

So, Karen went back to school and obtained her certification as a Nutrition Consultant in 2006 from Bauman College. Now, Karen merges her deep and innate culinary skills with her knowledge of holistic nutrition to help individuals achieve optimal health through detoxification and weight loss workshops, therapeutic cooking classes, and private nutrition consultations. Karen Diggs, CNC is a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals.

She lives by the simple motto: “Eat Right, Be Well.” You’ll learn a ton listening to her.

Brain Health and Nutrition Master Class

Healing Lyme Brain can be illusive. The path back to health has its twists and turns, dead ends, switchbacks. The problem arises when somebody reaches their goal of feeling better again and looks back at how they got there, the path magically straightens out and appears to be a straight line. It’s just human nature.

Because there are so many obstacles in healing your brain, it’s important to master the fundamentals. That’s why I put together the Nutrition and Brain Health Master Class. To help you identify and master the most fundamental nutritional strategies to nourish your brain and entire body

Here are the other lessons of the Master Class.

I practice acupuncture in Clinton, NY, a small village in the geographical center of the state. Once I became aware of Lyme and other insect carried diseases, I started seeing my chronic patients in an entirely different light. Join me as I speak with the the most fascinating people in the Lyme community. If you know someone I should interview, let me know.
