Karen Dwyer is a TEDx speaker, award-winning health coach, and founder of MS to Success.

After a career leading multi-million-dollar businesses in finance, media, and luxury retail, Karen received a debilitating multiple sclerosis diagnosis that caused her to rethink every aspect of her life. Through a process we’ll get into today, Karen now lives symptom-free – creating a complete shift in her mental, physical, and emotional well-being – and is on a mission to help others do the same.

Through her keynote presentations, Talk Healing to Me podcast, and MS to Success programs – as well as the latest scientific research on neuroplasticity, nutrition, and movement – she is helping people all over the world to take charge of their own health and happiness.

Karen is a leader in neurodiversity, sits on a number of International Health Advisory Boards, and is a member of the International Coaches Federation. She has been awarded ‘Best Health & WellBeing Coach for the Republic of Ireland’ and ‘Best Non-profit Covid Response’ and been named one of the top female business leaders to watch.

In this episode, we talk with Karen about:

  • Her journey from diagnosis to being completely symptom-free;
  • How she eases fear and captures intent for those who are receiving a disease diagnosis; 
  • What she’s doing to build mass resilience at a time when the world needs it most; and
  • How you can raise your hand for help when you’re at your most vulnerable.
