Karin van der Hoorn
Biographical Info Karin van der Hoorn is a qualified medical doctor who quit medicine many years ago because she felt she was doing a lot of things of which never had been proven and that might do more harm than good. She then discovered the path of low carb and (intermittent) fasting when looking for a solution to some health issues of her own (for which the specialists she consulted had no answers). She notes that she learnt a lot about health, physiology and nutrition that was never taught during training as a medical doctor. Now she strongly believe that lifestyle changes are the solution for the larger part of the tsunami of diseases in the Western World and that a low carb/ketogenic diet is an important tool. Karin became inspired to start working as a medical doctor again so she re-registered as a doctor last year. She also completed the Professional Training of the Nutrition Network and from October 2018 will start the basic Integrative Medicine/Lifestyle Medicine training at the Dutch Academy for Integrative Medicine. Karin hopes that in the near future she will be able to use her skills to help people get better through lifestyle changes, either by working as a medical doctor or by teaching medical professionals, advising organisations.
