What's behind the hype? Coronavirus Facts & Recommendations

immune system virus Mar 18, 2020
You’ve probably heard both ends of the spectrum by now…

One friend says, "The coronavirus is super over-hyped, everyone is over-reacting, and the normal flu kills thousands more people a year than this does. People need to calm down!"

Meanwhile your other friend is stock-piling supplies at home like the apocalypse is around the corner, and shares every statistician’s online post that says this virus will infect half of the global population.

We know that operating frantically out of a place of fear isn’t good for anyone. But governments and institutions wouldn’t be taking such extreme measures—shutting down borders and calling off huge economy-stimulating events—over something that was "just like the seasonal flu."

We’ve been receiving information and footage from our close friends and students in Asia that has caused us to take this situation seriously from the start.

Today we will share what we know about...

The Butterfly Effect: My Journey to Freedom by Karen Urbanek

Uncategorized Dec 19, 2019

AUDIO LINK https://soundcloud.com/karensholistichealth/the-butterfly-effect-my-journey-to-freedom

In physics the term butterfly effect refers to how a simple flap of a butterfly wing in America could cause a hurricane in South Africa.

In my world, I call it influence. 

Enjoy the true story of how my life was influenced, changed for the better, by hand-ups, and why I do what I do today.


There were new bath towels, plates, silverware, pots and pans, beds and bedding for all five children, food for the pantry, a watch for Eric, toys for Julia, and even a kitchen strainer! I didn’t have a strainer…… 

I remember the week before Christmas in1999 like it was yesterday.  My five children and I were recipients of a Christmas giving tree.

Ours were the only names on that tree, and we never even knew it.

I had been working at Mirror Image Dance Academy and had recently decorated the giving tree with names and gift ideas for people from...

Read Your Blood Work Better Than Your Doctor -- Workshop by Dr. Essen

classes dr essen Aug 27, 2019

Dr. Essen is flying in from MN to teach us his famous blood work class!  

SATURDAY SEPT 14th 9 am - 5 pm

Join Dr. Essen and fellow health-conscious students as he explains basic blood chemistry and teaches us nutritional support therapies. He will show you how to access blood panels for you and your family without using the medical system. Each value on the Comprehensive Wellness Panel (blood report) will be reviewed and discussed as to what those numbers mean to a person’s health.  All blood values will be under guidelines of Functional Blood Normal, which is much more accurate than Lab Normal (what hospitals and most all Medical Doctors use).  Each blood value will also have a specific nutritional protocol that will be used in imbalanced results. Each student will also be given a set of specific tools to use to evaluate blood test results.

It is $69.00 to attend the class, and if you would like a blood panel done it is an additional $100.00. If you...

Let's talk HISTAMINE: Mental fatigue, "allergy" or digestive cramping? Could be related to THIS organic compound

By Karen Urbanek, Holistic Healthcare Practitioner  


Probably 40% of my clients deal with what they consider "food allergies." 

But what research and my experience suggest... is that for several of them, their condition may actually be a histamine intolerance! 

Could your allergies be a histamine intolerance?

Could your health issues be triggered by a build-up of histamines?

Could the planet be saved by quercetin and DAO?

Yes, yes, and maybe ... it may take more than DAO and quercetin!

Let’s talk HISTAMINE.

Histamine is a chemical involved in the immune system, central nervous system, helps with proper digestion and is a neurotransmitter made in the stomach as part of the stomach acid. 

Histamine’s main role is to cause an immediate inflammatory response. It serves as a red flag notifying your body of any potential attackers and causes the blood vessels to dilate so white blood cells can quickly rush to the site of infection or...

Sprouting 101 + Karen's French Vanilla Rawnola

Hi Everyone! Karmen here :) You may have seen my video on sprouting on the Karen's Holistic Health Facebook page, however, I wanted to get some sprouting tips down in writing for those of you that prefer the written word over audio! I'll also share the recipe for the rawnola I was sprouting ingredients for during that video.


Sprouting is the process in which seeds germinate and put out shoots. Now you might be saying, "Karmen, why in the world would I want to do this to my food? Doesn't that mean it's gone bad?" In reality, sprouting has immense nutrition benefits! We'll talk about those benefits below, but let's get to the basics here.

  • First, take your nut, seed, grain, or bean of choice and rinse them well.
  • Put your rinsed item in a glass jar and cover with water about 2 inches above the top of the food item, then soak for the designated time. (Time varies from one nut or seed to the next, for example, soak almonds for 8 hours and sunflower seeds for 1 to 2 hours)
  • Rinse...

H. Pylori - How to Eliminate the Great Infector!

It seems that dis-ease comes in waves, and as of late – H. pylori infections are mounting. Thus, this article!  Whether it came into your body through undercooked chicken, raw eggs, using someone else’s cups or utensils, kissing that special someone, eating from someone else’s plate, the counter top, or simply from food or drink you consumed that was contaminated, the spread of this infection and the treatments for it are growing daily. In fact, the Worldwide Health Organization classifies H. pylori as a carcinogen, as it has been proven to cause stomach cancer while the National Institutes of Health (NIH) states over 50% of those over the age of 60 are infected and 20% of those under the age of 40 are infected!
