My name is Dr. Karen Hufnagl and I am enthusiastically committed to guiding women who struggle with weight gain, fatigue, brain fog, PMS and menopausal symptoms to feel energized, productive, lean, and strong. My mission is to help you reclaim your “perfect rhythm”, so you can enjoy the activities and adventures that you love, fully embody who you are, and live life on your terms.
If you are looking for a proven professional who can guide you to gain freedom from cravings, hormonal swings, and weight fluctuations, and to stop spinning your wheels when it comes to getting the health you want, you’ve come to the right place.
During my years of being involved in the nutritional and alternative medicine field, I have had the honor of guiding patients with similar health conditions and concerns to achieve consistent success. My quest and commitment is to support you in getting back to feeling like yourself again using a holistic approach to resolve underlying causes.

What drives me?
Seeing women transform and thrive as they are freed from fatigue, weight gain and hormone imbalances is what makes my work so rewarding. Partnering with you on the path to reclaiming the fullness and flow of life is what brings me the greatest joy. I would be honored to stand by you as you achieve not only your health goals, but also your life dreams, because you feel good on a consistent basis!
What makes me differerent?
There are a number of things which set me apart from other practitioners.
First, my services are packaged into a comprehensive program with a clearly defined overview of features, benefits and projected results. In working with patients over the years, I’ve come to find that to achieve the best results, there is a process which needs to occur. Single or sporadic sessions won’t generate the results you are looking for. To this end, I have developed this approach to insure that you have the absolute best opportunity to resolve your health concerns.
Additionally, you will receive a detailed written plan at the conclusion of each consultation that you can refer to as you implement your personalized treatment recommendations, along with essential handouts, guides and resources specially targeted for the areas you need support.
Finally, I know what you are going through – I have a personal journey through and triumph over hormone imbalance. I have been through thyroid cancer, low thyroid function, adrenal exhaustion, fluctuating hormones and years of struggling with my weight. I know exactly how these things feel, how extensively the symptoms can impact your life, and how to heal and move beyond them.
I have studied and practiced nutritional and alternative medicine for more than 15 years. In addition, the course of my experience in recovering from significant health challenges has been the result of my own extensive study and research, formal training in functional medicine, and collaboration with extraordinarily skilled clinicians as mentors and guides.
All of these pieces have collectively lifted me to a place where I am able to live my life fully and enjoy wonderful productivity in my career. I am thrilled to have the vitality and energy for adventures exploring the highest peaks of Colorado, riding my road bike, practicing yoga, and seeking out new recipes to create delicious and nourishing food that supports my lifestyle.
It is my pleasure and mission to serve as a guide, providing unwavering commitment and support in finding solutions for you as well, so that you too can feel your best – each and every day.

Patients with whom I’ve worked say remarkable things about the impact my work has on their lives.
Working with Dr. Karen has been a true blessing in my life and for my business. Eight months ago at 33 years of age, I could hardly get out of bed, had unrelenting acne, excruciating menstrual cramps that would keep me bedridden, and my mind was in a constant fog. I could hardly make complete sentences at times and couldn’t focus on anything for more than thirty seconds at a time.
Dr. Karen helped me to find out what was wrong with my body by ordering blood and saliva test for my adrenals, hormones, as well as a food sensitivity panel. I am now recovering from adrenal fatigue and working to correct hormonal imbalances that my medical doctor never even thought to check. Dr. Karen has helped me find natural solutions to my health issues with her caring and intelligent bedside manner. She is amazing at checking in on me to see how I am doing so I stay on track. She is always quick to answer any questions I have by providing advice based on scientific evidence.
My skin is better than ever and I rarely break out anymore so I have the confidence to leave the house again. I feel more in control, have more energy, sleep better, can concentrate at work, and I feel incredibly empowered by taking control of my health using natural and side effect free solutions. If you are looking for an incredibly knowledgeable and caring advocate for your health I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Karen. — LL
