Raya took a lot of time to understand and help us understand our son's GI issues. We had run out of options with traditional medicine, and were looking for any possible solution to help him feel better. Raya's dietary suggestions made sense, were easily implemented, and, best of all, worked well! Our son is feeling well, acting better, and has even begun to accept ownership of his new diet. As parents, we could not be happier to see him thriving and happy.

Raya’s positive impact on our family’s health cannot be overstated. After more than a year of taking our infant on unsuccessful visits with pediatricians and a pediatric GI expert, we were lost. Then, thankfully thankfully we found Raya. She was able to quickly identify my daughter’s digestive issues and develop a plan for healing that has put my daughter on a solid path to wellness. Raya’s knowledge of the body and natural remedies is amazing and impressive. I particularly appreciate Raya's holistic approach, which in our case included dietary changes, nutritional supplements, massage and yoga. Raya has helped not only my daughter but also our entire family improve our overall health and we consult with her on all manner of health concerns. We cannot thank Raya enough for the way in which she has improved our well-being and our lives.

(Raya) inspires me to take better care of my health. I’m much more health conscious and I’ve become so much more aware of what I’m putting in my body. Especially with reading labels and ingredient lists of my food. What an eye opener! No more fat free, low fat, no fat for me! Since I’ve improved the quality of the food that I eat I now have reduced my inflammation dramatically.
Samantha Minghetti
Raya has been helping me for the past 10 years with her massage therapy and yoga. Since seeing Raya, I‘ve experienced none of the lower back pain that I’d had for 20 years. She has fixed things doctors could not. She’s been “keeping me in line”! Now, Raya is my health coach and she’s helping me eat, act and think more healthfully — creating new healthy habits. Thank you, Raya!!!

My goals were (are) the typical ones – lose weight, lower cholesterol and just try to have a healthier life. Just in the first 2 months, I lost 4 pounds, my clothes are getting looser and my cholesterol went down 20 points. My new goal is turning her “lessons” into habits, which will then become simply the way things are — the healthier life that is everyone’s ultimate goal.

A few months ago, I had a hard time getting off the sofa – my hips would hurt, the tendons around my ankles hurt, I was slow to move, and I felt like I was not setting a good example for my daughter. In a mere two months of working with Raya, I have lost 6 lbs, my body has slimmed down, my pants are loose, my total cholesterol is down by 15 points! Joint pain is gone and I have enough energy to get up in the morning to exercise. I am now walking, hiking, jogging, and practicing yoga. No more gas, reflux, or heart palpitations! I know you will appreciate this picture. Thank you, Raya!

I had this prescription for stuff that I would have to take forever…??? I had been struggling with little energy and did not digest well at all – with little appetite, and frequent episodes of acid reflux and migraine headaches. The energy is back full speed and all the digestive discomfort has vanished. The best buck I ever ever spent on health stuff.
Richard PerezDelmar
I can’t thank you enough for how good I feel in my gut… your suggestions have really helped me. I have even lost a couple of pounds. Raya, you are a very special and inspirational mentor to me.
Marylin Baish
I have battled with intestinal problems all my life. When IBS and a hospital stay for a severe colitis attack took over life. With Raya’s help, I have changed my diet. I found it really easy to break the bad habits. Good health is worth the effort. You don’t have to suffer with digestive problems when there are solutions to help. Body pain can be helped, too. Working with Raya has been wonderful! I am grateful for all she has taught me.
