Dr. Johnson's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Johnson "I find it amazing how one encounter completely changed the direction of my career. I was disillusioned with medicine; the restrictions placed on me from the insurance and pharmaceutical industries impeded my patient care and was frustrating me to the point of retiring from medicine. However, one day at a weekly yoga class, that all changed. An acquaintance mentioned she was enrolled in the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona started by Dr. Andrew Weil. I applied to enroll in the Fellowship and I was hooked. I have not been able to acquire knowledge on Integrative, Functional, Herbal Medicine or nutritional biochemistry fast enough. Since that day, learning has become a passion for me and has driven me to continue to obtain many certifications beyond my formal medical training. This knowledge, no matter how complex, always brings me back to the basics of nutrition, movement and stress reduction. I cannot every imagine a time when I will end my quest for cutting-edge information about achieving optimal health. To learn more about me, please visit my karendjohnsonmd website."

Kamuela |
Stupendously knowledgeable in Functional Medicine, CIRS, and mold problems. Figured out my problems that have stumped other physicians for years. She's a real detective. If she can't sleuth-out your problem, you'll have a tough time finding someone who can.
