About Me

Expert Speaker &
Former CEO of OIRF

Carolyn has already trained hundreds of practitioners from diverse English speaking countries, in the most effective German diagnostic and therapeutic methods as the CEO and Managing Director of the Occidental Institute research foundation.

Occidental Institute was an international nonprofit society for practitioners of biological medicine. From 1972 to 2018 the Institute itself had been in continuous operation and specialized in German biological medicine.  Far ahead of the United States and Canada from the standpoint of its acceptance, utilization, established remedies, and superior instrumentation.

As a non-profit research organization, OIRF’s mandate was to educate, inform and to make instrumentation recommendations based on years of research.  .

After 46 years of continuous support to OIRF, in 2018 Carolyn decided to retire and focus on herself, her writings and her lectures.  Below you will find Carolyn’s upcoming lecture schedule, her most recent writings and a contact form should you wish to reach out to her.
