Nutritional Energetics

                       With Chef/Energist Cathy Hohmeyer


                                                What is Culinary Naturopathy?? 


Culinary Naturopathy* is a multi-dimensional wellness program created by Executive Chef & Nutritional Energetic Specialist Cathy Hohmeyer.


It fuses nature-based culinary arts with energetic-driven wellness. It is based on traditional methods with new age science and combines 30 years of culinary experience with Chef Cathy’s certification as an Occupational Therapist and Nutritional Energetics work.


 It will be a key component of the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat, the Adirondack’s oldest continuing operating resort.  We are now featured in the exhibit at the Adirondack Museum / Adirondack Experience.


 Combining the Upper Saranac – St. Regis region’s rich tourism history, highlighted by the Paul Smith’s Hotel and the Saranac Inn Resort, the largest hotel ever built in the Adirondacks (visited by 5 Presidents),  Lake Clear was strategically located between the two leading the way to its renown connector role of waterways, road and rail leading to its designation as NYS only wilderness canoe region and home to two scenic by-ways as well as its recent award as a State Cuisine trail.


Recognized as being in the “Healing Woods” the Lodge also operated a Cure Cottage inn. Today, the Adirondack’s world renown reputation as a nature-based outdoor destination and the exploding wellness travel industry offer a unique opportunity to create the Park’s first full service culinary wellness resort. The Lodge is certified as only 1of 7 North American Platinum (5 Green Leaf) hotels with Audubon International and a National Geographic Traveler award for “Keeping a Sense of Place.”


Culinary Naturopathy as a multi-dimensional wellness program consists of 5 interdisciplinary services utilizing comprehensive inter-related delivery mediums both on real-time and on-line.


It is not a startup initiative as it incorporates the Lake Clear Lodge & Retreat’s role as a 132 year old nature-based 4-season destination resort. As such the Lodge caters to nature-based visitors, operates as a Wellness Retreat with its recently completed Lake-view Great Camp Center and has an internationally acclaimed Old World farm-to-fork restaurant.


In addition to real-time culinary wellness programs, a blossoming on-line nutritional energetic learning initiative has been underway. The objective is to integrate these offerings into an interdisciplinary initiative. Components include:
