About Karen Ranzi, M.A.
Award-Winning Author, Speaker & Founder
Karen Ranzi is mother to two adults raised healthfully as vegans, and then raw vegans, award-winning author, internationally acclaimed speaker, holistic health coach, certified raw food chef, speech, language and feeding therapist, and owner of FeelFabulouswithFood.com and SuperHealthyChildren.com.
Karen grew up with extreme hormonal imbalances and gut health issues which effected her digestion, as she had Candida and IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for years. Her monthly cycle was highly erratic and she had severe cystic acne for almost three decades.
Doctors told Karen the symptoms were genetic and she needed to treat with medications. Over time and tragic family experiences, Karen learned that the power of whole plant foods and lifestyle modifications is the only way to heal the root cause of health challenges.
Karen has been a Holistic Health Coach since 1998 and Director of The Vegan Certification Course since 2015.
In 1994, Karen was able to heal her three year old son from asthma, chronic ear infections and multiple allergies, and herself from digestive and skin problems through dietary and lifestyle changes. By means of her education, life-changing personal experiences, and sincere desire to share her message, Karen has been able to guide thousands toward developing excellent health.
