Keynote Speaker

Karen C. Dantin, MD

The Gut Microbiome & Optimal Health

Dr. Dantin’s philosophy and approach to wellness is about creating a comfortable environment for patients to enable them to explore options and realize that exceptional health is a journey-with the ultimate path determined by lifestyle choices and daily habits.

She strives for a balance between the traditional medical practice and holistic knowledge, while working within the conditions of patients’ desires and actions to “be all you can be.” Dr. Dantin recognizes that treating the symptoms without addressing the underlying causes is not the way to true healing. Seeking and resolving root imbalances is the goal – the road to success.

Dr. Dantin graduated from LSU Shreveport in 1984, then after internship in Lafayette, LA, she began her career in the Navy in Gulfport, MS. She then entered family practice residency in Pensacola, FL, while serving as an active duty Naval Officer until 1992. After active duty, she continued serving as a reserve officer, retiring as a Captain in 2007. In 1992, Dr. Dantin entered civilian practice with Ochsner Clinic in Baton Rouge, then in 1997 became a physician with Baton Rouge General Health System. She began her private practice in 2000.

Since entering solo practice, Dr. Dantin has expanded her personal education encouraged by non-traditional methods of treatment like lifestyle management and teaching active self-care. Dr. Dantin chooses to focus on the natural rhythms and functions of the body as a whole, rather than treating the symptoms as though they were the cause rather than the end result of many health factors, including personal health choices. Desiring to educate and influence future medical practitioners, Dr. Dantin serves as a preceptor to nurse practitioners, medical students, and medical assistant trainees. In her non-clinic time, s delves into doing lectures, presentations, and conferences expounding on the holistic modalities. In her spare time, she engages recreationally in herb and vegetable gardening.
