For many years, Catherine was a practicing natural nutritionist working with nutrition-minded physicians and their patients to help them realize the importance of a whole foods and plant-based diet, plus lifestyle changes--long before the rather recent trend. Catherine has been a consumer health researcher and advocate since the late 1970s. Now retired, she was in the vanguard of the health and wellness movement based on holistic health principles: natural nutritious foods and diet; complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM); and the wisdom of health and healing passed down through the years from various cultures. Catherine shares the wisdom she's garnered over the years as a natural nutritionist, researcher, journalist, plus her personal opinions and comments about a subject everyone really enjoys: food! Over the years, Catherine's articles have appeared in various journals, publications, magazines, newspapers, Internet sites, and blogs.
