The gift from the pain was that my autoimmune disease led me down a path of healing with nature and food. Here is my story, from sickness to health…

My Story

I guess you could say I have been on a life-long journey of learning and improving. Earlier in my life I found my food odyssey spurred on by a particular fear. I had become frightened of what my life would be like if I didn’t figure out how to restore my health.

My late teens were a very difficult time for me and my family. My father died of cancer in 1995, and losing him proved pivotal to me in many ways. Sadness, grief, and fear of what our life would become without the leader of our home filled my heart and mind each day. However, I credit my faith to being instrumental in carrying forward and living out my best life.

In addition, my own health took a turn for the worse as I began suffering from continual pain and inflammation – which I now know was the result of chronic stress impacting my gastrointestinal tract.

Acutely aware that something wasn’t right, I visited doctor after doctor until finally, at the age of 20, I was diagnosed with mixed connective tissue disease, a painful inflammatory autoimmune condition. A series of appointments, over the counter and prescription drugs were part of the “healing” path, yet it didn’t make me feel any better, especially the pain.

As a nutrition student, I knew about healthy eating, yet really hadn’t linked my own fat-free, low-protein diet to my body’s own vitality. Even though I looked good, I was starving myself of the very nutrients my body needed most to cope with my condition.

One day, it struck me like an arrow – if this is how I feel in my twenties, how bad would I feel in my forties? Thankfully this became a real “aha” moment.

Soon, by reading and studying, I learned that food indeed has the power to heal. And thus, my real nutrition life-long study and journey began. I embraced the growing movement toward health and healing through food. I committed myself to not just eating, but indeed feeding my body with the nutrients it needs to function at its best.

Fast forward to now, more than two decades; I feel AMAZING and empowered. My food journey continues, of course, nevertheless, it has evolved in an extraordinary way. Now, I’m not just feeding myself, and I also work to feed my family, always striving to instill healthy core values about food in my three children.

Founder of Sea-licious Omega 3

With a B.Sc in Nutrition from the University of Saskatchewan and over 20+ years of experience, Karlene founded the award-winning brand – Sea-licious omega-3 oils in the effort to educate people to live their best and healthiest life through food, nutrition and an active lifestyle.

Sea-licious is the best-tasting, highest quality omega-3 nutrition on the market. It is my passion to bring the best and most effective natural nutrients to Canadians. After personally experiencing a deficiency of good fats in the early 2000s, it became my life-changing mission to educate and share the importance of omega-3s for overall health and wellness.

Sea-licious is a unique blend of powerful omega-3 fatty acids sourced from sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and all natural fruit flavors.

It is the only fish oil made with super powered algae astaxanthin, the most powerful antioxidant on earth, and what gives Sea-licious its beautifully unique red color. It’s the antioxidant you can see. Astaxanthin helps to protect our bodies’ cells from toxic damage and free radicals while preserve the integrity of the oil from light, air, and heat ensuring every last teaspoon is as fresh and delicious as the first. The result is an oil that is free from burp-back and fishy aftertaste.

Sea-licious offers a product for everyone and every need, coming in multiple different flavor profiles to suit your own taste buds. From pregnancy, to babies, kids and adults, I am so incredibly proud to bring your family the best possible option for omega-3 nutrition.
