Karen Saunders BHSc.
I am a degree-qualified medical herbalist, nutritionist, and a yoga, meditation and mindfulness teacher.
I work alongside Dr. Miranda Myles at ShenQi Natural Medicine in Melbourne, specialising in women’s health, and a personal passion of mine – all things gut.
I love what I do.
I am also a woman who has navigated my own health issues. I understand the challenges we women face.
Today we choose to fulfill many roles and responsibilities. We take on a lot. Our bodies are powerful enough to spring Life; yet at the same time we are sensitive, receptive and have a huge capacity for emotion. This often means we give to ourselves last, and our health and inner emotional
I’ve arrived here through my own journey of chronically never feeling ‘enough’. I used to strive for perfection, and this gave rise to anxiety, fatigue and sexual health issues and hang-ups. I’ve dedicated more than a decade of my life understanding all aspects of women’s health, and have developed a lot of tools. I love the delicate hormonal interplay within our bodies, and everything it tells us. Another topic close to my heart is the blossoming female sexuality thats happening right now –
and the healing that happens when a woman starts to embody her power. I love to help women start to recognise that.
It is my belief that when a Woman feels good and awakens to her
worth she facilitates great healing to those around her – and to the planet. Therefore it is my purpose is to educate women so that
they can facilitate their own healing.
