Nutrition for Musicians

By Karen Stauffer

Let me introduce myself.  I've been active in the field of health and nutrition for 28 years, running my own shop for over 15.  I have a degree in nutrition but my nutrition knowledge is current because I always stay up-to-date on the latest findings and I read a lot!  (Constantly, in fact.)

Most of my friends seem to be Musicians and a fair number of my customers are Musicians, Singers and Actors (both famous and relatively unknown).  Professional performers know from experience how important good nutrition is to their careers, including Vitamin and Herbal supplements.  It often hits them the first time they're on stage, and they're worn out after the third song.  They start wondering how they're ever going to survive the next hour of their show!

What I do: Intuitional Nutritional Counseling, which involves answering your questions, making suggestions on what to ask your doctor, and giving information to help strengthen weakened areas of function.

What I cannot do: Diagnose any diseases or prescribe for specific illnesses.  That we leave to your doctor (who I will be glad to work with).

My e-mail is "".  I also can usually be reached at our 800 number (1-800-651-3820) during our normal business hours for brief questions.  Longer consultations can be arranged.  (Of course all names are kept confidential, as are details of any medical conditions.)  If I am not there, please leave a message, either with my assistants or on the machine.
