Our Story

Empower your body to do what it was made to do.

In 2012, Dr. Carolyn Dolan took stock of her health and didn’t like what she found.

She was experiencing chronic fatigue, chronic pain, chronic sinus infections, and was overweight.

Her journey to better health led the Reno physical therapist to the world of nutrition and to a simple lifestyle program with the profound potential to transform health and well-being.


We studied how the body works under stress
then created a supplement that supports its natural ability to recover.

The tenets of her lifestyle program

  1. Eat well
  2. Move well
  3. Sleep well
  4. Connect well
  5. Supplement well

While VitaKinetics is focused on step 5, steps 1-4 are integral to overall health and to making our supplements effective.

Discovering an alternative to pain meds

In addition to guiding herself and her family to better health, Dr. Dolan began coaching her physical therapy patients on nutrition to support their pain management in lieu of the anti-inflammatories, over-the-counter drugs and opioids they were using. When their chronic pain issues improved and even resolved, she dedicated herself to understanding the science behind the benefits of nutritional intervention.

Seven years, a master’s degree in nutrition and a book later, Dr. Dolan had launched VitaKinetics and developed the Active Recovery Blend.

She wrote the book on recovering naturally (literally)

Dr. Dolan’s master’s thesis – titled “Recovery from Orthopaedic Surgery/Injury: Optimize Healing and Reduce Pain Naturally” – was the impetus for developing her lifestyle program and the VitaKinetics Active Recovery Blend.

What Dr. Dolan learned in her research and patient work was that in order to optimize recovery from an injury, surgery or a chronic pain condition, the nutritional and inflammatory status of the patient is critical.

The Active Recovery Blend is not a miracle cure for pain or inflammation, it is simply a tool to aid the body in recovering effectively and naturally. And it is a tool that requires the consumption of real foods – whole sources of fruits, vegetables and animal proteins, salted to taste – to gain the fundamental components for healing. VitaKinetics Active Recovery Blend works optimally to support the healing system when the basic nutrients are provided to the body from real foods.

Video testimonial

"I definitely believe in the Vitakinetics. They are a perfect blend to put you back up and going after surgery. I am a 78-year-old female who had a complete knee replacement. I started taking them the day after surgery and 2 days later stopped taking the pain medications, except for the Tylenol. I started feeling my energy return immediately after taking them and definitely did not show signs of any mood swings. I am hoping others will try these great supplements. I really believe in them and am going to continue taking them."
