Karen's Story


Karen's Story


Karen Junk has a national certification and a Master’s Degree in Speech Language Pathology and operates with a very personalized healing and therapeutic fashion across all ages. In her heart of hearts, she believes there is not a diagnosis, delay or disorder in existence that cannot be helped considerably with an individually customized nutritional healing approach. This includes children and families with special needs (Speech Pathology Root Cause).

Staying true to desire to help others in any way possible, and in the process clear her own problematic skin, Karen is also a Licensed Esthetician, trained in CranioSacral Therapy and Chinese Face Reading with the motto of, “For You and Your Face, I will Hold Space”. Karen is a firm believer that the skin is often a very real and accurate reflection of health and that “Healthy Skin Begins Within”.

Drawn toward holistic health and healing work, Karen became a Nutritional Consultant with The Global Institute for Alternative Medicine, yet was still completely perplexed that her own health was not at an optimal level, far from it in fact. Karen found herself "doing everything right" and still feeling awful most of the time. Despite being constantly told nothing was wrong, Karen knew something was not right.

After nearly a decade of relentless fatigue, absolute frustration and suffering, Karen found Functional Diagnostic Nutrition®. FDN turned out to be the golden key that finally and forever unlocked the door to amazing skin, marked improvements in fitness, nearly effortless weight loss, emotional freedom and most importantly remarkably improved overall health and well-being in every way. Karen trained in FDN for purely personal reasons, however, as word of mouth began to grow through just a few clients, she realized this was also a professional calling in every way and continues to further her studies of mind / body / soul. She started HI-END Healing (Health Integrity through Empowerment in Nutritional Diagnostics) because she believed there are answers out there if you ask the right questions (and if you correctly interpret the lab work, especially from a functional nutritional perspective). She believes we all deserve to experience our own very personalized, customized and individualized HI-END of healthcare and nutritional healing and she is here to help and support you along your journey.
