- Diabetes affects about 30.3 million Americans or about 9.4 percent of the U.S. population.
- Nearly 1 in 4 adults with diabetes, or 7.2 million Americans, are unaware that they have the disease.
- Another 84.1 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition in which blood glucose levels are higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes.
- Nine out of 10 adults with prediabetes don’t know they have it.
Some ways to prevent and manage pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and unhealthy cholesterol:
- Healthy Eating
- Healthy Weight
- Physical Activity
- Stress Reduction
Talk to Your Doctor about prevention and treatment of diabetes.

Art is Good Medicine – Creative activities can relieve stress, aid communication, and help arrest cognitive decline. (Harvard Health Publishing, July 2017)
Relaxation, Meditation and Hypnosis – People have been asking for recordings of my guided meditation and hypnosis sessions for many years.
Offering hypnosis/hypnotherapy/guided meditation since 2000. I was often asked for a ‘recording.’ Over the past 7 years we have been producing and testing our generic recordings. Based on hundreds of individual client responses and their feedback, we have found them to be safe, effective, when used as directed. Ready to Launch!
Self-Care Tools – these recordings are intended as self-care tools and adjunctive (supportive) aids in collaboration with your conventional medical care. Feel free to contact us with any questions, prior to or after purchase of any of these products.
Generic recordings offer more accessibility and affordability. Not everyone can afford a one-on-one private session. Not everyone will be able to travel to see me in person.
By offering these recordings on-line I am hoping to bring the benefits of relaxation and positive, healthy lifestyle changes to more people around the globe.
Our On-line Store Launched on Summer Solstice. The First Day of Summer seemed a great time to launch products that help promote change.
“Using your guided personal meditation tape has provided me much peace and relaxation as I have journeyed through my medical complications. It has helped ease anxiety, minimize medication withdrawal symptoms, and promote sleep. I have used what I have learned to be more mindful in the moment.” ~ Nancy S.M. Buffalo, NY
In addition, on the day of the Summer Solstice this review and testimonial was posted on Facebook, prompting me to finally make the on-line store a reality:
Client Testimonial – “Using a guided personal mediation tape made for me by Karen has provided me much peace and relaxation as I have journeyed through my medical complications.

Note: Consult your physician prior to using relaxation, meditation or hypnosis recordings.While relaxation, meditation and hypnosis are generally safe, there are some precautions.

Have you or someone you know experienced the Addiction of Loving an Addict?
Please join Ayurveda Wellness Healing, LLC and Jenny Ravikumar of Barefoot Yoga Shala for an evening of discussion around healing your heart, body and soul from the addiction of loving an addict. Sunday, June 4 from 4-6pm
During our evening of conversation and refreshments, we will be learning about the addiction of loving an addict. What it means to be co-dependent, how shame and forgiveness play into family disease and what you can do to begin your own recovery. We will connect on how we can explore the use of yoga, al-anon principles, essential oils and breath work to heal.
You deserve self-care. Addiction may not be your choice, but it is your journey. How you move forward is your choice. Let’s release shame, invite forgiveness and explore loving kindness.
We will end our evening with a guided meditation, breath work and an essential oil assist.
Jenny Ravikumar, e-RYT 500 hour teacher, reiki master, healer and writer. She will share her powerful story of how she began (and is still to this day) healing her own heart while staying strong in loving her son and creating a new family lifestyle for them both.
This is a free event – please spread the word.
