My desire to learn about food and nutrition commenced when my daughter was born, this was when I started my journey of learning to live a clean, chemical free life using food as medicine. I became more aware of the toxins that affected our health including the use of chemicals in our water, on our crops and the artificial flavourings and colourings used in our foods. In 2014, I left my long-term project management role (I spent 25 years working in an office) to attend 2 years full time study doing an Advanced Diploma in Nutritional Medicine. This is where I gained my passion for clinical work, I had the opportunity to work closely with adults and children to assist them in improving their health. My passion to work closely with the community, to educate them and to assist them in healing through dietary modification and nutritional supplementation has continued to grow, with me completing a Bachelor of Health Science, focusing on Clinical Nutrition in 2020.
My own health journey has encouraged further education into genetics which has improve my own and my family’s health. I continue to learn every day with a focus on keeping up-to-date with clinical and product education to assist me be the best nutritionist I can be.
I am registered through the Australian Natural Therapists Association and I work with a number of different companies where I use blood, genetic, neurotransmitter, hair food intolerance and stool and urine testing to assist me as clinical tools.

Client's Success Story:
‘Karen and I had known each other in previous work lives and I was so lucky to have made contact via friends with her again recently and intrigued to find she was now a nutritionist.
By sheer coincidence I was struggling with an allergy reaction and after providing information about my diet, exercise and lifestyle I learnt that I was doing all the wrong things to ease the problem.
Karen provided comprehensive information, recipes and advice on how to improve my health which in turn helped me to control my allergic reactions and generally feel happier and healthier. Her professional manner and friendly nature made it very easy to feel comfortable in our meetings.
I would highly recommend Karen Bryett’s services to anyone who needs assistance to feel well, sort out health issues and enjoy their lives again.’ Sharon R
Gabee and Michalea's Testimonial
'A quick email of to say thank you Karen for your time and expertise in helping my Mum realise the importance of better nutrition and quality supplements.
Your information was easy to understand as well as implement. Stressing the importance to her of something as simple as protein at each meal has helped her to rethink her food options and make better choices. This has resulted in her feeling better.
You have a wonderful way with people, your questions were brilliant but didn't feel invasive, yet got the bottom of the problem. Your questions really helped discover the underlying issues and put us on the right track to being healthier.
I can't thank you enough actually for your help and knowledge, I feel so relieved to know where you are for the future. Thankyou again! Gabee and Michalea
