HOLISTIC NUTRITION: Karlien Bester

As a holistic nutritionist, I work with clients to help them uncover the obstacles in their way of optimum health and function, and help them discover the healing power of a wholesome diet, herbs, and therapeutic nutrients that include high quality dietary supplementation.  I encourage a healthy relationship to food and health, to be simple, yet effective to bring along positive lifestyle choices that provides long lasting change and a healthful state of body and mind.
