“Early in 2012 I started experiencing pretty extreme GI problems. I also have psoriasis, which in the last 2 years had gottenreally severe. (I could not wear short sleeves or skirts.) In the midst of a lot of testing and waiting for appointments w/ docs, I started seeing Carla. Carla is extremely thorough with her intake, very informed, and honestly just very likable. She will ask you to do things/try things that are hard- be ready for that. Food is a very personal thing. But she works with the person, not a template. (I provided additional challenges by being a lacto-ovo veg for the last 23 years.) Results? First target was addressing my gut. Within 4-6 weeks, my GI symptoms had all but vanished- at least a 90% improvement. They have been completely gone now for 7-8 months. At about month 3, my psoriasis started to break up and clear. AI am now seeing her only once a month- the steady progress with my skin continues, (at least 80% clear!) and my gut is doing great. I’ve learned a lot. I’m a huge fan. Go see her, she’s great!

“ I have been working with Carla, first weekly then bi-weekly for 9 months. I had started dieting in college. my weight for the next 30 years was from 160 – 210 lbs (sometimes within 6 months). I started working out about 6 years ago and had narrowed the range of my weight from 180-195 but could not seem weight loss. The Oreo’s and Cheese Doodles had not got in the way. I am fitting in clothes that I had not worn in years. Carla’s enthusiastic approach has slowly, but steadily, changed ingrained habits of 49 years. I now drink water instead of diet coke, nuts instead of Oreos, sweet potatoes instead of mashed potatoes. Carla’s program is not one of denial, its one of substitution. We enjoy homemade ice cream (from Carla’s recipe). All in all, a very positive, life-changing experience”.

“Carla is incredible! I had horrible digestion problems for years, which was affecting my energy, my brain, and my overall attitude. After eliminating gluten, and increasing fresh veggies, pasture-raised meat, and eating a ton of fat, I have never felt better. She even gave me some recipes for healthy cookies and other treats using almond flour, raw honey, etc. The best part is she figuring out exactly what my body needs, and has empowered me to be the healthiest, most vibrant I can be. I recommend her for any and all your health needs! She’s the BEST!”

“Working with Carla has changed my life. After moving to NY City, I began working with Carla to reduce and find natural ways of alleviating stress. She find the right combinations through supplements and diet adjustments has assisted me in a wonderful change of lifestyle. She is extremely personable and always has her client’s best interests in mind. Her strong knowledge base and professional outlook has instilled in me a new outlook on how to live healthy. She has my highest recommendation!!!!”

“Carla has made an amazing difference in my health and energy level. I put on some extra pounds due to eating out at restaurants so often. My main goal with Carla was to get my weight back down. She evaluated my food journal and suggested some changes and gave me a number of options and guidelines for eating when out of town. I’ve lost 11 pounds and continue to drop weight gradually. But the biggest benefit: I’ve noticed that my energy levels don’t drop in the afternoon anymore, my sinuses (which used to clog up at night) are staying clear now, and I don’t feel bloated after eating dinner anymore. I’m looking forward to the next “food” evaluation and diet adjustment!”

“We are very satisfied with Carla offered in caring for my toddler’s recurring ear infections. After several doctor offer was antibiotic after antibiotics, my son built resistance to each antibiotic and also each weakened his immune system so he wound up getting yet another infection, sometimes stronger than before. Carla dug into the root of the problem – diet and immunity. She advised to eliminate wheat, dairy, and sugar until his infection cleared up, also placed him on whole food supplements. He has been ear infection clear for other a year! We are happy and very grateful parents!”
