As a Nutritional Therapist I work in conjunction with the public and a range of health care professionals to facilitate individualised nutrition support programs for clients with a wide range of conditions and those simply looking to improve their current levels of health.
A former Crohns sufferer, I now specialise in autoimmunity and digestive health including Crohns, Colitis and IBS. As a mum of 2 small girls I’m also passionate about family health and the prevention of illness with a food first approach.

The ultimate goal of Karen Ward Optimum Health is to be a resource for sharing knowledge and information. My aim is to provide well-researched information, in order to enable readers to make informed choices and empower themselves to take better care of their health.
Of course, new discoveries are being made daily, both in the mainstream field of allopathic medicine and complementary medicine alike. As such, it would be a physical impossibility to report on every new development (across the myriad of fields) that may arise. For this reason, I hope that readers enjoy my site and facebook posts, while at the same time being mindful of the health choices that are available to them.
I, Karen Ward – of Karen Ward Optimum Health do not in any way seek to impose my views on readers, but rather encourage them to seek out any professional help they may need (in whatever form that may take) and discover what works for them personally on their quest for optimum health. In this regard I do not advocate that any of the information on this site be taken as medical guidance or advice, but that it merely act as a platform for inquiry so that you, the reader may explore new ways of looking at yours and your families health.
The information published on this site is not intended to act as a substitute for the advice of medical professionals, and should not be taken as such. Full responsibility for this lies entirely with the individual. I cannot be held responsible for any consequences arising from the use of information on this site, and cannot accept responsibility for any injuries or illness which may arise if the reader fails to take the appropriate medical advice
