there is nothing more important than your health – I found Cara through a mutual friend and then soon realized how renown she is. This is important because I can rely on her expertise. After all, I know nothing of herbs and acupuncture. She is warm, caring, and responsive. For me, Cara is a life saver. She has helped me emotionally and physically fight stage four colon cancer. Chemo and radiation has been easy for me and I truly believe it has alot to do with being positive as well as the herbs Cara formulates, which are designed to give the exact results I have experienced. I would not trade her for any thing.
