Karen Taylor, LAc Acupuncturist and Chinese Herbalist

Note from our founder, Andrea Shuman:

"When I came across Breakfast Cure®, I immediately got a rush of excitement. Here was the missing piece from my Ayurvedic practice to get very busy people to eat warm, well cooked and well-spiced foods without needing to have any cooking confidence or knowledge. This was often an obstacle in my practice. Someone would come in with digestive issues and I REALLY wanted them to make kitchadi, but it felt complicated and new to them, and many could not make the leap while working 50 hours a week. Like Ahara Ghee®, Breakfast Cure® was created by a practitioner of Eastern Medicine and not a "business person" or established manufacturer. Her intentions were about making healing foods accessible. There were many clients who might have stayed with their healing program, with access to "set it and forget it" wholefood options like those found in Breakfast Cure®. We are happy to offer them here and introduce you to this wonderful company."

Karen Taylor is a licensed acupuncturist, certified Chinese herbalist, and founder of Breakfast Cure®, proud makers of pre-packaged congee, a nourishing meal based on traditional wisdom. With over 25 years of experience in private practice, Karen is devoted to sharing the power of Chinese medicine with people in the West. Experiencing the benefits of acupuncture, or feeling better from eating warm cooked foods can be an access point to understanding the body, mind, and spirit in a whole new way. One remarkable insight into health can offer a lifetime of improvement in wellbeing.

Relying on both the science and the poetry of Asian medicine is at the core of Karen’s congee recipes. Balancing patterns of imbalance rather than treating disease is the bedrock of her approach.​
