K-L (Dr Karren-Lee Raymond)

Dr Karren-Lee Raymond’s research focuses on the concept of processed food addiction being a neurobiochemical condition of the brain, and the prevention and treatment being the same as treating other addictive diseases such as drug addiction and alcoholism.

Through treatment based on abstinence from the addictive substance processed food addicts can live happy and healthy lives.
