All About Kathy

Get ready to be inspired and entertained. Dr. Kathy Gruver delivers life-changing information in a fun and down-to-earth manner. She is an award-winning author, health practitioner, PhD, hip-hop dancer and trapeze artist. She is the host of the new national TV series, The Alternative Medicine Cabinet. But, her natural health career started, unknowingly, at the young age of 6 when she would massage her dad’s neck on long car trips. Years later watching him care for her dying mother sparked even more interest in alternative medicine, life options and helping others heal.

With a background in theatre and bad fast food, Dr. Gruver overcame her addiction to caffeine, artificial sweetener and meals that were eaten in the car. Now, decades after her mother died of cancer and 15 years since her last drink of soda, Kathy, with her ‘Go for it’ attitude, makes it a point to help others navigate the sometimes-confusing world of nutrition, stress reduction, natural health and mind/body medicine.

As a former actor with decades of theatre experience, Kathy has an ease in front of groups and conveys information in a fun and down to earth manner. Her lectures are not only inspiring and education, but entertaining as well. What sets her apart as a speaker is her ability to relate-ability and talent at reaching people on a personal level. The perfect combination of formal learning and life experience, Gruver offers a balanced and practical approach to teaching. Always energetic and entertaining, Gruver adds a spark of life to any lecture, retreat and workshop.

Dr. Gruver has earned her PhD in Natural Health. She has studied mind-body medicine at the famed Benson-Henry Institute for Mind-Body Medicine at Harvard Medical School and is a natural health practitioner with over two decades of experience. She has penned countless articles, contributed as an expert to dozens more, appears regularly as an expert on radio and TV and has written five books. She has lectured around the world for everyone from nurses in the Middle East to 911 dispatchers in New Orleans, corporations around the US and teachers in her own backyard. She just completed work on a project for the military to create and institute a stress reduction program. For fun and stress relief Dr. Gruver does flying trapeze and hip hop dance.

I have had the privilege of working with many talented speakers in my career, and Kathy Gruver demonstrated a very raw and natural talent for public speaking that I very rarely come across. Kathy was super easy to work with, was attentive to detail and due dates, and incredibly easygoing when it came to the technical details of our conference. It was a true honor and privilege to have her on my TEDx stage, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a speaker that can truly deliver.

Dr. Kathy Gruver spoke to our Paramount Rotary Club about conquering stress. It was a very captivating talk that kept each one of us very interested from beginning to end! Her mini meditation technique is so practical and can be used by everyone without requiring anything special. If you get a chance, you must listen to her talk!
