Karen is a recovering cocaine and sugar addict, and has worked closely over the years with Prof. Tim Noakes to develop the Harmony Eating and Lifestyle Program (HELP), in conjunction with Harmony Addictions Group. HELP is the world's first inpatient program treating sugar and carbohydrate abuse as an addiction. As a health and lifestyle pioneer, Karen has been interviewed on shows such as Dr Michael Mol and Doctor's Orders, and has been featured in articles relating to sugar addictions in publications like Cosmopolitan, Women's Health and Sarie.
Karen's belief systems are based on the premise of empowering body, mind and spirit with authenticity, balance and mindfulness. She extends these principles to form the foundations of her programs, HELP and Sugar Free Revolution, as well as in her new Sugar Free: 8 Weeks to Freedom from Sugar & Carb Addiction and in her role as co-host to The First International Low Carb High Fat Health Summit.
