About Dr Karen

Dr Karen Coates is Australia's leading holistic medical doctor and naturopathic physician.

An expert on women’s health, Dr Karen lectures internationally on nutrition and health issues, as well as hosting seminars at Australia’s leading health retreat and World’s Best Eco Spa, Gwinganna.


Over the course of her 30-year career Dr Karen has worked as a medical doctor and herbalist and is the published author of the health book ‘Embracing the Warrior - an essential guide for women’. 


Dr Karen has degrees in medicine and surgery and postgraduate qualifications in obstetrics, and nutritional and environment medicine.


She is passionate about her work with clients in the areas of fertility, hormones, optimal wellness and weight loss and has made it her ‘mission’ to help women take control of their health and achieve their wellness and fertility goals.

When she’s not deep in research, helping clients or writing, Dr Karen can be found planning her next European adventure, in her garden with the family dog Dexter…or just enjoying some Vitamin D on the back deck with a little dark chocolate and a book.

MD, Dip. Obstetrics, Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists
