Karen Urbanek, HHP, Creator of TNC, Author, Worldwide Motivator and MOM!

Karen Urbanek has a history with getting back to the basics of health. As a young girl, she was diagnosed with epilepsy after years of undiagnosed episodes. Twenty-eight years ago, while pregnant with her first child, she wanted off medications. She took her health back into her own hands and within months of self-teaching, exhaustive research, and diet changes, she was forever medication and seizure free.

She knows first-hand just how powerful the body is and how quickly it can and will heal if properly understood from  a cellular level. Her self-discovery has become her life-calling; a passion that has helped thousands of people worldwide heal their bodies, their spirits and share what they've learned with others. She wants that joy, ease and outrageous energy that comes with amazing health for everyone, which is why she devoted her life to teaching others the science of the body in an engaging, easy-to-comprehend and entertaining way.  She excites and motivates everyone to listen, and to make great changes in their own lives. 

Karen is the author of two books and the creator of the prestigious Therapeutic Nutritional Counselor Certification course, which teaches more than 120 natural modalities of healing, diets from around the world, electromagnetic frequencies, all about detoxifying and reversing dis-ease in the body and more. Karen's TNC Certification which has impacted thousands and has plans to certify 10,000 lives - globally - in the next five years, is so much more than a coaching program.  It is science, biology, and education from not only Karen who is a sought after Holistic Healthcare Practitioner, but her fellow colleagues: professionals and doctors around the globe.

Karen resides in Southern Utah with her husband, Roger.  They have 11 children and 10 grandchildren.

Great Health? IT'S A CELL THING!
