When it comes to your health qualifications should matter

Carina is the  first triple degree graduate in CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) therapies in the world, having studied  3 x 4 year full-time science degrees in natural medicine, with each degree totalling 96 hours contact per month, compared to many acupuncture, naturopathy, nutritional therapy or homeopathy junk courses offered in Ireland which are only 3 years part-time and only 14 hours contact per month. Carina has 20 years clinical experience.

Carina is a published author of two scientific trials, a world first trial comparing acupuncture to drugs in the A&E, Prospective, Randomised Control Trial of Acupuncture for Select Common Conditions within the E.D. Emergency Department of The Northern Hospital, Epping, Melbourne, Australia to assess the potential of acupuncture to reduce waiting times, reduce pain and satisfy the desire of patients to see complementary medicine within mainstream healthcare. The other, Determining the effect of a homeopathic medium potency of calcium on the bone density of women as measured by bone ultrasonometry: a pilot study comprising one year.

Carina is to begin a Masters in Public Health with UCC Ireland in 2018

Alarmed a to see people practicing having completed online courses, Carina strongly advises to check your practitioner's qualifications and insurance details. People are getting wrongly diagnosed by underqualified, uninsured practitioners. Many perhaps well-meaning practitioners are encouraging orthorexia (an eating disorder characterised by an obsession with eating foods one considers healthy). Carina does not prescribe fad diets nor believes in machines that test for food allergy, instead recommending evidence based practical dietary advice and prescribing  the gold standard low reactive diet and oral food challenge in the cases of suspected allergy/intolerance. Carina also specialises in a vegan/vegetarian based Ketosis diet for not only weight loss but to treat neurodegenerative disease, epilepsy and as an adjunct cancer therapy.

With many children, Carina specialises in Natural Parenting/Fertility and homeoprohylaxis.  If you want someone with the confidence and experience to see your child, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you can trust Carina.

Prior to returning to Ireland Carina was working in Far North Queensland Australia as a Sports Nutritionist and Acupuncturist for the most northerly AFL team on the east coast. Carina has recently developed a tonic that acts as a legal natural ergogenic aid. An ergogenic aid is a performance enhancer and has the ability to directly improve exercise performance capacity and enhance physical strength.

Carahealth specialise in gravity fed water filters and fluoride removal. Most filters will not remove fluoride. Carahealth have been specialising in fluoride removal for 10 years. Carahealth now offer an exciting new product call bone char, the fluoride removal medium recommended by Professor Paul Connet Ph.D of the Fluoride Action Network. Carahealth also have their usual vegan option of  vegetable char/activated alumina cartridge. These water filters not only remove all chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals and bacteria, they also remove microplastics.
