Carol Green, NTP
Nutritional Therapy Practitioner & Healing Foods Chef
Have tried many different diet plans and just ended up with feeling worse in the end? I know how devastating this can be, after years of facing serious health challenges and trying many popular diet plans, it was an enormous relief to finally learn the foundations of traditional nourishment, and understand the healing power of real food.
I was raised on a farm in South Africa and spent my childhood, teens and early adult life battling my weight and trying every diet in the book! The result was a cascade of health issues which eventually lead me to the path of studying Nutritional Therapy in my quest for healing.
Cooking is a passion, and I spent many years as a private chef, in residences and on luxury yachts. Healing foods should look and taste amazing! The body has an amazing ability to heal, given the right tools. I truly believe health problems can be diminished, eliminated or avoided through a nutrient dense program, improving energy levels and overall health.
To educate clients and the public to become knowledgeable as to how the body works, and to make an informed, educated decisions to achieve health goals, I offer my services for corporate health seminars. These are tailored to the specific needs of the event, and last between 30 to 45 minutes. Presentations may include a power point slide show. A cooking demonstration with samples can be arranged.
Currently working with large Charlotte area corporate clients, seminars can range from a one off event to an eight week series.
Listed below are a sample of subjects I can speak on, contact me to discuss your event requirements, I would be happy to schedule a speaking engagement!

“Detox” Health Cleanse or Crisis?
Promoted as a way to cleanse toxins in the body and expedite weight loss, “detox” or detoxification diets are more popular than ever. Indeed once the body is rid of excess toxins, the metabolism functions optimally, promoting weight loss and general well being.
The danger however, lies in unsafe ‘detox’ programs being undertaken without a proper assessment and guidance, if there are underlying health conditions these can be exacerbated by an extreme ‘detox.
